Solid black items and invisible my end too.. Your not alone.. useless for fighting foes :( Cant see pots etc.. Tried to continue skilling but near on impossible with alot of items changed and invisibility issues lol. lets hope its fixed asap tad bit fed up with missing events


You can use the ability bar for both your skilling and killing needs without seeing the actual items, in case if you don't know.

For instance, you can put a potion in an ability bar even if you don't see it. Then you can just either click it on the ability bar to drink it, or you can use hotkey too.

Great advice here because who needs to know how many doses left in your potion flasks or how many flasks left or how many sharks left for that matter. Also if you get a drop who want to be able to see it to pick it up. Really we should look at this like a gift. Invisible/blacked out items just make pvm so much more exciting!!!


If you really need to see the flasks in your inventory, you can buy one from GE or trade for one with another player. This should force an rendering update to the graphics of the flask. You should be able to see the flask in your inventory then.

As for seeing drop on the ground, this is not even what the problem is and what this thread is about. You don't see items in your bank doesn't mean you don't see drop on the ground at all. Besides, even if you really can't see the drop, you will still see red dots on the ground, you can just move over to where the red dot is or dots are and pick up the loot.

@Hispid Gnome

I do get the this graphic bug every now and then. It works for me. Obviously I can't tell from everybody's perspective. So I just give an advice and hopefully it will help other people.

If you don't see what I see, too bad, but likewise you can't tell what the other people see.

Items you pick up never "vanish" even if you don't see them.

Sorry that my suggestions may not help you, but many of my friends definitely found the solutions, and hopefully more will find the best gaming experience. :)

1 week on and no fix. No mention of problem. Not on here or Twitter or Reddit. Nothing.
We can now however buy a load of useless skilling **** for bonds. Yippie!!!!


They did mention the problem was backward compatibility issues of various older hardware/software configurations months ago.

Not sure how this has anything to do with bonds now as we know for a fact we can pay to win with bonds and buy all kinds of endgame items like ECB, tbows etc.

Same problems here, I really hope they fix soon. Preloading inventory icons stays stuck at 41%. Cannot see half my bank and all my potions are black. Using a preset but still would like to have my potions back to normal. Just as I was going good on the Yak track also. Please fix.

Actually I switched back to normal mode, and the icons loaded, can see things as normal after doing this.


Glad to see your problem went away in just a few minutes by doing something simple like switching to between normal/compatibility mode which will force to send an update to Windows to request an update.

Anyway, don't worry about the "preloadin..." progress stuck at 41% or whatever. A lot of time mine stays at 0% but it loads in the background when I just play the game normally.

Same problem here. it's been for weeks. Tried clearing cache, no luck.
Reports no answer.
Graphics drivers can't be updated anymore.
Is this a way from jagex for us to buy new computers?


Not necessarily new computers but the latest version of Windows (or MacOS) and graphic drivers should help most players with this issue, and they don't need to buy anything except perhaps if they need to upgrade their graphics cards.

Unless your system is way behind on it's updates that won't help at all! It's not on the players' end, it's on the game end. There is nothing we can do but wait for Jagex to eventually fix it. again!


Sort of but not exactly. Jagex have acknowledged players using Intel HD cards may still have problems, but most others don't seem to have many issues when they have their operating systems and graphics drivers up-to-date.

So still, no need to buy new computers if one can get a different graphics card than Intel HD if it is the problem.

So let me understand this. The graphics card in my computers, I have 2 of them, are suddenly, out of the blue, incompatible with Runescape? I'm not buying it.


It is not "suddenly" just because someone posted it in the Recent Game Update forum. This is a known issue for over a year for those who have out of date hw/sw and some with Intel HD.

Please check OP's another thread on the same issue in the Community Led Technical Help Forum like 6 months ago and see if you can find the answer:

Tomorrow it will be a month. This doesn't seem to be a priority for them to fix at all and it's the second time I haven't been able to really play for a month this year.


This kind of projects in backward supporting legacy computers are always ongoing for all kinds of companies including Jagex, Microsoft, Intel and such. There is really no specific "priority" attached to it, especially when a Jagex's new Steam C++ client is crashing left and right for most players of that game that will need more urgent fix.

If it was a graphics card issue I would have had this problem years ago when I started using these computers. I have not changed anything in either computer I regularly use and one day, out of the blue, the graphics are messed up! It's a game issue, not an issue with my computer!


Years ago we weren't running Windows 10, and we even have Windows 11 around the corner now in September 26, 2021. ;)
