I have quite a big screen (4k) and the login background looks like this:



Doesn't this look ridiculous?
Can the background be stretched so no black areas show up? The loss in quality is much less annoying than those black areas.

EDIT: suggestion of Joseph F 1: also make cursors bigger, they easily get lost in big screens.

EDIT: According to Mod Edge, interface scaling is coming, but there is no release date yet.

EDIT: suggestion of Alexandreana to bring back the awesome 3D background and the suggestion of Trewavas to bring back the even older login screen with the flames of Lloigh-Enn.

EDIT: suggestion of KingChris to make some objects in a stactic background move a bit.

EDIT: why do I usually get the background of Sliske's Endgame when I choose for 'random'? I am seeing it way too much for it to be just random compared to all the other backgrounds...

I don't know if there are any settings you can change to adjust that but, if there are none, they most definitely need adding. The problem could also have something to do with your computers display settings, I would have a play in there and see if you can fix it.

Another 4k problem that needs addressing is the size of the cursor. On my screen it is very small and can be easily lost, especially during game modes such as dimensions of the damned. So a toggle to adjust the cursor size would be useful. I have already adjusted it to its maximum size in the windows settings.

If I adjust the game window and make it smaller, the image stays the same size, so making the window small enough makes the image fit, but then the whole game is in a smaller window.
I don't have any problems with a small cursor, I let Windows zoom in up to 150% to make everything on the screen bigger, and although the cursor is smaller than on the laptop I used before, I can still find it back easily. But I understand that on big screens, the cursor can easily get lost, so I'll add it to the first post as well.

RuneScape doesn't really support 4k (yet).


Ninja-fix: Let RuneScape support 4k! Stretching the login image isn't that hard to do. Making the font size or the mouse size adjustable could take a bit longer.

Change resolution maybe? Or play in full screen.

Edit:
Support


Playing in full screen gives that ridiculous black area's in the login screen. If I make the window smaller, the image stays the same size so the black disappears, but then I'm not using all of my screen, and games are meant to be played fullscreen. I already let Windows zoom 150 % in on everything to make stuff better visible on such a big screen, so when I don't do that (just tested it), the black areas take up about 3/4 of the whole screen!

The highest resulution RuneScape can handle is lower than 4k, 3413 x 1920, while a normal 4k screen (the one with the 16:9 aspect ratio) has 3840 x 2160. I don't really see a difference that the game isn't optimal for the monitor. The background images on the login screen themselves seem to be smaller than the 3413 x 1920 RuneScape provides, and it seems they cannot be streched, and this is what stings my eyes.

No support. Login screen doesn't need to be overly fancy. Keep it simple.

Stretching the image isn't overly fancy, the black areas just looks ridiculous. I'll add an image next weekend of how it looks without Windows zooming in to 150%, it really looks like a black hole.

I don't have a 4k screen but, support. It honestly can't be that difficult.
Nvm literally one second later I realised that it'd actually end up looking horrible if they just streched it.
They should still try and make 4k versions of the artwork imo but I can see that being a much longer process.
Perhaps instead they could just add a (few) 4k boarder(s) in the meantime so that people don't have to constantly be looking at that boring black boarder.
