P.S. We're also having some of the US worlds moved to a different facility. Your patience will be appreciated if this makes the update take longer than usual.

Let us have the Anti-Santa outfit instead of crackers!

Anti-Santa first gives you his outfit. If you keep helping him after you've got it all, you then get crackers.

Was the music cape idea scrapped or?

Now that we can unlock every song, a little reward for doing so would be nice.

Not scrapped, just postponed for now. We had rather a lot of work to do for this update as it is; the cape - and presumably its emote - will have to come another time. A poll might want to be involved too.

Are we still going to have to bring ropes every time for KQ? I'd love to see that updated similar to Saradomin Godwars.

I'd like to have that changed too. But it's not been changed yet.

Is the poll running today for the snake boss name?

I think it'll be up later today.

Would runetek5 be a possibility in osrs now that Ian is working with you?

Ian's better placed than I am to answer this question, but he's not in the office right now. I gather he'd like to know which bits of Runetek 5 people want. It will not be possible to chuck out the OSRS engine and replace it directly with a different engine from a different time - well, not without breaking a whole load of stuff - but he'd be happy to try making the changes you actually want.

So why haven't all the people, especially the streamers, have their iron man status revoked...

Many such people are having that done right now. Including streamers.

EDIT: ... and if you were watching a certain stream a few minutes ago, you'll have seen it happen.

Oh alright! I just liked how it made everything look smoother and how the characters looked and moved :), would actually be pretty cool if some of these aspects from runetek5 would be able to be introduced in oldschool if it had enough support! :)

Sounds like you're describing the automatic tweening system.

That's worth knowing - Runetek 5 had a whole load of stuff in it for changing the way the engine processed clicks and queued actions, which is not related to the tweening.

did you guys fix needing 2 ropes every time you do kq??

It's still working as it did in 2007, yes. We have not updated that (yet).

So this means this one streamer lost his iron man status? ;)

We don't, as a rule, go around giving out information about other players' accounts.

But if it's a streamer, you'll likely be able to find out from their streams.

Hello!! Just want to clarify what time zone the events have been made in. I assume it is GMT+0

We advertise events in GMT+0, yes.

I use this site to convert that sort of thing.

@Mod Ash, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I know much hard work has been dedicated recently and I have had confirmation of what you just said in the ironman cc. I just want to wish you a happy holidays and I will be resubbing again now.

Cheers :)

Thank you for revoking statuses of fake ironmen, well done. I bet 99% of the ironman community is happy about it.

Well, from what I've seen on Twitter, some people assumed that it wasn't going to happen and went on a major ragefest straight after the update. Hopefully they'll find that the players in question are indeed being demoted.

Loot share please? Too many scammers I can't pvm hardly anymore

In a game with no "official" market prices, it's not entirely straightforward to share out the loot. But if you didn't mind it working off alch values or similar - or if you didn't mind voting for a GE - then lootshare would be a possibility.

No.

Is my question just being ignored...?

We don't get to reply to every question on the forums. It's not personal.
Rune shops mostly.

Shardshare?
Anti santa outfit looks cool

Whenever we've mentioned shardshare as an idea in our Q&A livestreams, the response has usually involved howls of "NO SHARDS NO SHARDS NO SHARDS RAARRGH" from the outraged viewers.

But if it were actually popular, we'd be happy to go there. Mind you, I don't think it would be a very convenient solution unless players first vote for a full GE system.

Mod Ghost's done a lovely job on the GFX for Santa and Anti Santa. It's been a real pleasure to implement.

Why is your beard and chin hanging off your avatar? *Gasps* WHY IS MY CHIN HANGING OFF TOO?!

This chathead isn't actually player kit. It's the Wise Old Man's NPC model. So it's labelled and animated slightly differently to normal player chatheads.

@Mod_ash is it possible to remove pid from the game?

No. Your IP address should not be able to give a combat advantage.

Saxo said:
If there's too many items it causes bugs and overflows the system or something (Ash mentioned this before, that's why when they do increase it, it's not by much)

Don't really see the need for more bank space.. manage your bank more. We already have 600 which is tonnes.

Something like that, yeah. The more slots there are, the more processing the game needs to do when you edit your bank. If it does "too much" processing, it crashes. We can't calculate exactly how many slots will become "too much", and it's not likely that we'd be able to do reliable tests for all the possible bank modification actions that might trip it. So any increase is a risk.

Nevertheless, while 600 is a heck of a lot, we're going to try increasing it a bit further and crossing our fingers next year.

having visited him, and stowing my Anti-Santa jacket in my toybox, I now realize we do get to keep the outfit, thx =)

Yeah, I figured you'd work it out once you'd got the item.
