Hi all,

I am posting this to see if anyone else is having these issues relating to the "Window modes" available in game, ever since Jagex changed them and removed the "Fixed" Screen size option.

I play in restfuller mode and always have, but ever since last weeks patch when they adjusted some things and removed the fixed option, it has been nothing but a nightmare!

Every time i boot the client up, or even allow the game to enter the lobby or log out, the game reverts from full screen to "Windowed" mode and resets my HUD to the "RS3 Default" and I am forced to go back into the settings and change the mode back to full screen and re-select my HUD layout (My Custom 1) a few times before it will actually apply.

This is really annoying as it does it every single time without fail that i exit the game in any way. I haven't been able to find anything or anybody else complaining about this so i'm not sure if it's just specific to me or not. But i would like any advice available if possible,

Many thanks

Edit: Misread what you were talking about, my bad.

My best suggestion would be to submit a Bug Report, possibly messaging a Jmod on twitter as that seems to be the best way to get a direct response, but don't count on it.

I just tried this (setting to Fullscreen, going into lobby, and then closing the client to reopen it) and nothing changed for me at any step, still opened up/logged into Fullscreen mode whilst retaining my previous customization settings.

Hope you get this problem fixed for you :)

I have the exact same problem.

I have never used fixed window mode. My interface has always been set at fullscreen mode. And yet every time I log in what OP described happens. When the client starts up the setting is at fullscreen but as soon as I log in it changes to windowed and resets the layout. Changes back every time I log out or switch worlds. I switch worlds fairly often so it gets frustrating quickly. It turns me off from even continuing to play.

It happens on both my PC and my laptop. I have tried redoing my entire layout but it still happens. I have reinstalled the NXT client. I tried running in compatibility mode for different windows versions. I saw a suggestion on the forums to override high dpi scaling behavior and set to application (couldn't find the thread anymore) They all failed. I have submitted a bug report but no response yet.

I think we have to do this ourselves. I have no clue how bug fixes are done, but I have a feeling they are unable to fix this if they cannot reproduce it. And by working out how exactly the bug can be reproduced, we may figure out the parameters by which it can be avoided. Feel free to correct me.

Anyway, my spur-of-the-moment, as-few-screens-as-possible custom layout that I made long ago did not trigger the reset. I'm looking into it.
