RuneScape Client/Multiple Configuration Setup

Back to main article: RuneScape Client

This guide will show you how to modify the RuneScape Downloadable Client to be able to run multiple versions of the game, including the Old School RuneScape servers and any beta or alpha game versions.

Make sure you have the latest version of the client before you follow the instructions.

Although specific instructions are given for Old School RuneScape, a similar procedure can be used with a different directory/folder name with a matching .prm or info.plist file to enable access to different servers. Refer to prm Files for specific settings to be included. Although the file format is slightly different with the info.plist file, most of the same settings are available.

Changing the Icon in Windows

  1. If you wish to change the icon, open the file location of your oldschool folder, (the same one with oldschool.prm) and replace the image jagexappletviewer.png with your own image. Make sure to name it jagexappletviewer.png, if you do not follow this step, only the desktop icon will change and not the taskbar icon.
  2. Next, create a .ico file out of your png. Many conversion sites exist to turn .pngs in to .ico files, and it is recommended you use an image with a transparent background for your icon. An example image is displayed to your right. Pasting the .ico file in to the folder is convenient, but not required. A simple google search for convert png to ico will find you a website to create your .ico file.
  3. After replacing jagexappletviewer.png, right click the desktop shortcut for your 2007 client, and change the icon to the same .ico file you downloaded.
  4. Note that not all PNG to ICO converting websites are created equally. Some will not convert at the same quality as the original PNG that you uploaded. Try a few different sites out, and pick the one with the highest quality .ico file.
