Settings for advanced users

As it's open-source software you can get OpenJDK and the code used to create the RuneScape game window here.

The downloadable client has a method for allowing multiple settings files, which may be used in combination with separate shortcuts to allow the use of the client software to access both the live game and other versions of the game including old school servers and Beta servers (if available).

For more information on how to enable this feature in the client, please refer to Multiple Configuration Setup and prm Files.
