Hiya,

Ian and I are deploying a small game update to - hopefully - help with some of the issues players have reported since Resizable Mode came out.

In particular, I'm working on the bug where text input boxes keep getting mixed up (e.g. Search Bank comes up as Message Friend, or Withdraw-X comes up as Join Channel). Ian's working on the severe loss of framerate whenever you equip lots of items in your inventory.

There'll likely be more work to be done after this update, both for these bugs and for many other points that players have raised.

And beyond that we're very much aware that you'd like us to install new features such as a zoom control and enlarged interface panels. Thanks for your patience.

Mod Ash and Ian
OSRS Team

EDIT:
I reckon Ian's change has sorted the equipping problem. The bug with text input boxes probably still exists, but will hopefully be less common now. We'll likely release another patch tomorrow to try and stamp it out.

FIX SERVERS BEFORE ADDING NEW SHT PLEASE....

The sysadmins are working with our hosting providers on a network structure that'll be more resilient to DDOS attacks. Sadly this is not a small or quick job for them (or, indeed, for the hosting provider).

Since the OSRS team can't help the sysadmins go faster, we will continue doing game updates as players request because, frankly, it wouldn't help if we stopped.

What about Anti-Aliasing? (in the near future)

I'd personally like us to prioritise a zoom feature (that can store its setting over logout/worldswitch) and then making the chatbox, inventory and minimap increase their size on high resolution monitors. Those will likely have the biggest impact on playability. Anti-aliasing may, perhaps, need to wait a little longer.

Hey Ash, just want to make sure you're aware that currently if you try to log in in a situation where your character is immediately in combat this will cause the login screen to turn black unless you can click the red play button before your character is hit. This is a pretty serious bug and could cause people to lose a lot of gear in high risk situations.

I'm working on that now.

I've fixed that now.

Ever since the new update, I've been getting a crashing error message. I already deleted my cache, looked for graphic updates, reinstalled my java and nothing worked.

Ian's hoping to install some additional debugging code in OSRS tomorrow which will hopefully allow us more visibility of what's going on for players. Currently we've been working almost completely blind, hence the difficulty in fixing the text-input box bugs.

...if i may ask is it possible to resize my game window to take up nearly my whole screen? maybe i'm just missing something extremely obvious

If you're in a browser, it may have its own full screen mode that'll hide the menu bars at the top and leave you with (mostly) just the game view.

One thing I've noticed is, when I switch to resizable mode, I cannot see the level of wilderness I am in. I don't know if this is a "bug" or not, but it would be nice to see that added.

Isn't it next to the skull icon below your minimap?
