I'm quite pleased by this decision. Props to jagex for keeping osrs graphics old school!


The thing is, an HD Graphics plugin has literally no effect on you if you don't want it. That's the beauty of it. Literal 0 effect. They let it go under development for 2000 hours over the course of 2 years before literally as it was being released, they finally said no, also they said they're making their own HD graphics. So your view on this seems completely backwards.

Everyone, it's all going to be okay now!! Please re subscribe!!! You will be able to use the HD clients now until Jagex finishes their own edition!!! THANK YOU Jagex for listening. I'm sorry it had to go that far.


No thank you. Until they actually act, it's all words. This was a stupid decision from the beginning. And moving everything to one thread to contain the outlash is disgusting. When I unsubscribed it told me to come here and give my feedback as to why I was unsubscribing. it encouraged me to make a forum post. But all of our posts got locked because a few people took the protests too far and called people some names.

Before you invest manpower hours and finance, make a contract first. Don't assume you are given the greenlight just because people don't care


While that's great advice, NONE of the stuff given to us by community developers would be possible if that's the route we'd taken, and without runelite, OSRS would not have survived. Rose colored glasses don't keep players around. I, like MANY others, came for the nostalgia. And when that wears off, and it will, I was there trying to figure out why I even liked this game. The QOL improvements granted by community developers is the only reason I enjoy this game. Cooldown timers, marking tiles, boost stat timer, potion timers, menu entry swapper, loot tracker, raids scouter, these are all the things that make the game fun. Without these, it's simply tedious for most of us.
So, as a community, we didn't go after OSRS with legal action. Because they DO have the legal right. But we also, as a community, have the right to not pay. I'm not obligated to be a member if I don't like the direction of the game. I'm not legally required to be a member, or even to play at all. So while your statement is correct, it also does nothing to discount us or our actions.
