I'm personally ridiculously excited for this. It's so good to see such a positive reaction amongst you all!

To answer a few queries:

Why didn't you release xx piece of content instead?
Different people are involved in different development. It has had no effect on our content releases. We've continued to poll and release content, and we'll continue to poll and release content.

Will content change because of mobile?
Nope, we won't be adapting content to be "easier" or releasing "easier" content because of mobile.

im pretty sure its only android devices only.
I remember Mod Matt K saying on stream that IOS takes 30 days to pend after every single update.


FAQ is here:
The app will be free on iOS and Android, and will mirror your current experience; if you’re a member you’ll be able to access all worlds on the app, if you’re not a member, you’ll be able to access non-members worlds only.

Keep getting Error 503 first byte timeout, when I try to register my interest. :(


Keeping an eye on this. Looks to be a SurveyMonkey issue. We've seen a huge influx of interest since the announcement. I'd recommend being patient and trying again later. :)

Does "All worlds" imply deadman worlds, perm/seasonal? I would like to see that be the case, personally.


It implies all worlds, my friend. Deadman included!

So Mod Sween I was wondering what decides if a player will gain access to the mobile beta? Some of us older players would love to try it asap <3. Anything else besides just filling out the application?

A number of things to take into account (essentially everything you filled out matters). It won't strictly be for older players, though. It isn't a reward for playing RuneScape for a long time, it's to ensure that all testing is as thorough as possible and we can release the full version as soon as possible. :)

What do we do if we missed bata sign ups??

It's possible that there could be another sign-up period, but there's nothing planned as of yet.

I'm excited to see that progress has been made with pushing out the beta. However, I am now curious if there is any information on the time line to come. Such as if everything goes according to plan with minor issues being fixed when could we expect the possible full release?

Robot Devil said:
When can we expect the next wave of invites to role out? Even an ETA would be great, as a lot of us are really looking forward to playing on mobile & helping improve it. My childhood dreams are coming true!

:P


There's no specific public ETA on the next tests just yet, but I expect it'll be in the coming weeks that we open tests for iOS.

Hi Sween, i was invited and today i received the 2 mails you sent but the link isnt working, how can i solve this?


The second (most recent) link you received is the correct one, and it is working (we have over 1700 testers in-game. It's likely that you're logged into the wrong Google Play account. Try logging out of all GPlay accounts and then logging into your accounts one by one to try the link.

I don't think I got added to the mobile testing forum. Could you please add me? Thank you!


You do have access already. Log in to the forums and scroll to the OSRS area, you'll see the testing forum at the bottom.

I was sent an invite to beta test mobile. my email and in game message show the same number but when I use the link to download from the Google play store I get the message: error retreiving information from server. DF-DFERH-01

how can I resolve this?

is it perhaps because I am in CST time zone and Google play hasn't updated our apps in the store quite yet?


if this is not the correct place to ask questions or give feedback, please let me know or link the correct forum.


That's a Google Play error and not one I can really advise on. It won't be related to your timezone, though. Google search the error code and follow advice on resolving it.

GarLock said:
I'm not able to access the beta due to my email not being a google address. Will someone get in touch with me on how to resolve this.


Your RuneScape email does not need to be linked with your Google Play email. Your Google Play email does not need to be a Google address.

Do I post bugs here? I have found one on my Samsung S8+


No. Use the Old School Mobile Testing Forum.

Hey fam

I know it's been mentioned that the App is free, but I just purchased premier gold membership, and I saw an option for a 35.99$ or so 'mobile sms package'. I couldn't find any information on what that was aside from available pricing.. (I apologize in advance if I missed it)

Is this an added P2P cost to be able to actually play OSRS mobile? Or is it something to do with SMS/messaging?

Cheers

Ruski


It is nothing to do with OSRS mobile. It's a method of paying for Membership using your phone credit (it involves a code being sent via SMS).

Make Old school Runescape Mobile an open beta, sign the petition!

https://www.petitions24.com/release_old_school_runescape_on_mobile_as_an_open_beta#form


I applaud the effort but unfortunately we won't be jeopardising our testing plan because of a petition. It'll go to open testing once it's ready. :)

supertaliboy said:
I got the email confirmation that I had been choses as a beta tester, but the link in the email won't load a page but give me an error. Any way to fix this?


It depends on the error. If it generates an error code then it's a Google Play error and we cannot help, but they will be able to. If the link doesn't direct anywhere, it's the incorrect link and you should use the second (most recent) one sent. If it states your account isn't eligible for the application, then you're using the wrong Google Play account.

Also,
@Everybody leaving feedback/reporting issues

Can you share the feedback within the Old School Mobile Testing Forum please? You'll also see Known Issue and Game Controls detailed there.
