Mobile Chat QoL and Bank Deposit Boxes

July 19 2018
Mobile Chat QoL and Bank Deposit Boxes
This week sees the addition of a large number of deposit boxes to banks which previously didn't have one, as offered in the last content poll. There are a lot of mobile quality of life updates as a result of your fantastic feedback from the ongoing Android Members Beta.


Mobile Content Changes

Your friends logging in and logging out will no longer cause the Private chat tab to flash. It will still continue to flash when messages are received.

The chatbox has been reduced in size to prevent overlap with other interfaces, such as the XP interface.

The Kourend Favour overlay will now correctly expand when tapped on mobile.

We've updated some interfaces to help them avoid overlapping other interfaces which may be open (such as the chatbox or your inventory). Interfaces we've updated include: Castle Wars, Wintertodt, Chambers of Xeric, Motherlode Mine, the Pinball random event, Galvek's hitpoints bar, killcount within the God Wars Dungeon, and the Volcanic Mine. This is just a fraction of the interfaces that’ll need to be adjusted in this way, but since they need to be changed individually, we’ll be fixing the rest gradually throughout the coming weeks.

There's now an additional option to have split private chat. There's also an additional option to stop split chat from appearing when the All tab is closed. Do note that when split chat is enabled it will overlap with any interface located in the top left of the screen.

The battery icon, network connection icon, and the battery charging icon have all been tweaked to improve their appearance.



In the first image you can see that the Kourend Favour interface can now be interacted with as intended. In the second image you can see the split private chat option.


Remember to make use of the Old School Mobile Testing forum to provide feedback and report any issues you encounter.

Bank Deposit Boxes

In the last poll we asked whether deposit boxes should be added to bank locations that do not currently have one. This poll passed, and so we've added the deposit boxes to the following locations:

  • Clan Wars
  • Shantay Pass
  • Duel Arena
  • Etceteria
  • Motherlode Mine
  • Barbarian Assault
  • Mage Arena (the bank, not the actual arena)
  • Legends' Guild
  • Mount Quidamortem
  • Rogues' Den
  • Arceuus
  • Lovakengj
  • Hosidius
  • Kourend Castle
  • Lunar Isle


See, there's a deposit box there now.
