Forgive me but I'm sick and tired of seeing "HD update" threads. All they do is cause distress for players like myself who wishto preserve the integrity of OLDschool runescape. A lot of you will agree that the graphics of OSRS now are classic, charming and beloved and its simply how many of us percieve what the game of Runescape is.

When the HD update was released in late 2007, I remember how saddened I was to see the graphics I knew and love got turned into rubbery poorly textured crap. Though at the same time I enjoyed those graphics because the game was moving forward AT THE TIME. Oldschool rs is supposed to be an experience of RS akin to the 2006 Era. In fact some models aren't even really that old-school anymore because they were precursors for the HD update. I would like those old imp and dragon models to make a comeback but I know the current is what is needed for the OSRS team to craft new enemy models.

This all being said I am tired of seeing OSHD discussion threads, I believe each and every one of them should be locked and I would like the OSRS team to make a public statement about no intention to develop HD graphics. The longer Jagex goes "teasing" at the idea of an HD update, the more distressed some players will feel. Protect our oldschool game Jagex. Do SOMETHING.

2007?????????????????????????? wut? i remember RS2 becoming RS3 much later than that. hell i didnt play until 2008 or so. (whenever the autocast update was applied) or are you talking about the transition from RS1 to RS2???

anyways i STILL wanna see the talking heads and later RS2 spell animations come back. (the ones everyone claims was a ripoff of avatar despite the fact that avatar itself compared bending to magic) but i agree that this shouldnt ever look like RS3.

one issue with this is, the corrupt devs make a show of catering to what the people vote for, so if the majority demand some sort of texture update the devs might do it. so i dont think they're gonna take a firm stance on never polling that issue.
use dissenter periodcom to bypass censorship.

@Skysunder while I appreciate your enthusiasm, I must redirect you to RS3, where those baby face chatheads are still there. That's what you should play to get the content you are wanting.

The Transition was in late 2007, a month or so LATER than the current snapshot of the game from 2007 and the beginning of 2008. I believe Jagex wanted an older version than the 2007 one we got, however this was the final snapshot of the game as it was pre-HD.

If it were up to me even more oldschopl graphics would be implemented. Look up a picture of an imp from 2006 for example and compare them with the current imp from 2007. I think the old imp and other creatures look better and fit old-school more, but most of the monster graphics have already been updated with older versions of their animations broken.
