even if that memorial was simply an NPC named after him? Or an NPC based on one of the characters he played?


WoW did\is pulling this same stunt and honestly I think its dumb. I know Williams was a gamer but if he never touched your game, no just no. Not to mention he is one guy, yes hes the one and only Robin Williams but, sorry just dont feel its right.


it was an idea, and after looking into that, it's all rumors atm until blizzard confirms it, and at one point in time there was a couple of players I met at PC long ago named ''Robin Wllims'' or something like that because of the letter limit, and Nanu Nanu. so in a way Robin Williams did touch our game whether or not he was playing :P

turns private chat to public and there comes the pms of people blaiming me for how rare items turned out lol

I wasn't playing osrs around the time that all that rares stuff was happening, what the fudge did you do lol


a couple of my friends and I made a thread shortly after it was voted that they would be released over the summer in 100 locations and then all of them released every holiday event. this thread gave the locations off 140+ locations in which they could spawn, and because we turned world 345 into a force spawn world we guaranteed that everyone could get at least one once we knew all locations were covered.

even though we had nothing to do with how the polls turned out, everyone knew they were going to be as common as dirt eventually, but I still get blamed for it.

Remember his ridiculous idea for a trade island?
I lol to this day. :D


lol


well it would have been something other then ingame ****, but since that is happening yeah I gave up on it...watch though that the continent turns into a trade island...it already meets the roman style and the size of the continent that we had in mind.

Why is everyone making these tiny little subtle changes to their names?! That's three people now I didn't notice change their name lol... 4 if you count a non-forumer person


I've always wanted Mr Crow without the zero, until they unlocked the M names I had MR CR0W (with the zero) about 2 weeks before os launched

Fun Fact: most of the jmods on the OSRS team don't have a clue what they do (if they did they wouldn't rely on the engine team for updates :p)

on another note: I also crashed my first car last week T_T

LMFAO ^ you compare being against regular Runescape updates to being against something that isn't at all Runescape and frankly sounds ridiculous.


false, goblins and dwarfs exist in game and playing as other races has been talked about since day one...devs didn't want to make multiple versions of the same item.

and a Goblin in full Bandos sounds completely sain to me

Had an idea I posted a while ago to mitigate losses due to downtime/DDoS, since this seems to be reoccurring, let me know what you think about it:

I am no expert in the field of computer sciences or security, so if someone is, please feel free to let me know if this idea is plausible or not.

We all know Jagex isn't capable of rollbacks, especially since the first losses were 3 days ago and no one was in the office to deal with the issue.

It's been stated before that the game saves automatically every 15 minutes (it was not made clear, however, if those saves are stored or overwrite one another).

Would it be possible to implement a script that would function to automatically shut down the servers and go back to the last server save if an unusually high and suspicious number of queries are made to the server (like in the instance of, say, a DDoS attack)?

This would prevent the need to engage in "rollbacks" as a reaction to a crashing issue, and losing 15 minutes of experience to reimburse items of those who died shouldn't be a communal outrage like losing 3 days would.


yes that is possible to do.

blizzard also does something when it comes to people hacking your account and stealing all you items by screen shotting your items what your characters have. and they also keep track of where your account has been logged in via I.P. watching. and when you send in a ticket saying your account was hacked they restore it to the last point in which they know you were in control of your account.

No I mean that's almost certainly game engine work.


yes it is entirely game engine work, work that Jagex hasn't even put in any of their games and is real easy to set up...could be done in a couple of days if everyone on the engine team puts their heads together on one thing

if we're getting Iron Man mode within a few weeks (5-8), what is everyones opinion about a PvP only mode?

this too would require you to make a new character but here's the thing, pvp only toons start with 99 in every combat related skill (Atk, STr, Def, Rng, Mage, Pray, ,+ HP) but they can not level up in any other skill. they can not roam around the map. They start on a PvP island where there would be portals to all the pvp areas, and they would be confined to that area, but they can tele back to the pvp starter island by a portal (ex: there would be a portal by the ditch in edgeville that allows people to teleport back to the island.) all accounts would also start of with pvp plate/range/mage armor/ & weapons in their banks. these can not be traded or sold.

Well in that case, HELL NO.
If you want to be maxed go and max lol, this isn't an RSPS.
Crow, idk if you're trying to be funny or if you can't help but come up with dumb ideas lol.


actually not all of my ideas are dumb ideas, everyone liked my skill cape idea. and we accommodate Iron Men accounts, so why can't we help out people that ONLY want to do pvp? why do they have to grind for months in pve when once they get to the levels they would like they will never touch it again? and if everyone has a pvp only character this will
A: put all/most pvpers on the same playing field
B: increase player population. thus increasing jagex profits which will also mean that the jmods will need more staff on their team to handle the larger player base.
C: because players will always respawn with pvp gear, they will never be butt hurt over losing gear do to ddos attacks or severe lag spikes

Who would do genuine PvP if this existed? This could(in my opinion would) be the final nail in the coffin for PKing.


Pvxers, the type of account we have now people that want to do both PvE & PvP...people that already put the time and effort into grinding to a max account. plus pvp respawn armor probably shouldn't be the best armor in game since it's a free-be.

Most people PKing currently have incomplete accounts. What I'm saying is that is the majority of an already small group of players.

edit: I'm not at all trying to bash you, and I apologize if I gave off that impression. It's just my opinion that this would have a negative affect on PKing much like that of PvP worlds, an update that received the community's support.


PvP worlds were a mess of a poll imo, and I threw in the idea of pvp-only accounts starting with maxed combat stats to draw people into pvp. since it's pvp only they can't go straight to GWD with it as that would be pve.

Now I know you don't like the idea because you feel it will have a negative effect, how can it have a positive effect (without scrapping it) from your point of view?
