Jagex you just can’t make this community happy can you??


Its not jagex making the community unhappy its the community choosing to be unhappy even though they have full rights to do what they did.

The creator was doing something they clearly werent supposed to be doing so its got shut down.

How thats so hard to understand is beyond me.


Why do you feel so strongly that integrity comes before enjoyment of the game?

If Jagex wishes their client be the most popular, then they need to invest in their client. If they lack the resources to do so, they need to invest in more resources (i.e engineers). If they are having trouble finding talent, they should open an office in the US and raise salaries. Stifling competition is an incredibly poor replacement for investment in oneself.


For the record, OSRS has already invested and obtained the talent. As former Mod MikeD addressed on his first livestream, OSRS planned to hire 20 new Jmods with focus mostly on the game engine. They did just that. They did hire 20 Jmods who have spent quite a lot of time on the new C++ client.

One thing you definitely need to realize is it takes years to make a new client with good functionality. It took Runesape years to make and refine the NXT client since the beginning of the 2010s.

Rome wasn't built in one day, neither is a competitive new game client. :)

Jagex caved in as expected. History will repeat itself.

But let the low-class (runelite) players continue to stay at that intelligence level.

Just wanted to say I'm proud to be part of a community that will stand up for one of its members so strongly. However, I am also proud of Jagex for demonstrating (again) that they are willing to backtrack to find where they went wrong and forge a new path from there that is (fingers crossed) better for everyone. Everyone makes mistakes, but what separates a good dev from a bad dev is how they handle those mistakes and the resulting community outcry. In this regard, I'd say Jagex has done an admirable job. Kudos to the Old School team and kudos to everyone in the community who voiced their opinions in a civil and constructive manner. Cheers to a prosperous (and high definition) future!

Nick, they've updated their stance -- might be worth updating your OP to prevent future flaming from those that commonly skip the announcements page :P.

117Scape's HD Plugin - Update - 10 September 2021

We're delighted to confirm that we've reached a positive agreement with 117Scape, and that their much-anticipated HD Plugin for the RuneLite client will be made freely available on Monday, September 13th when RuneLite pushes it live.

We'll publish another blog on the Old School website once 117Scape's HD Plugin is available with information on how to access the plugin, and we'll continue to provide news on any future updates the plugin may receive.

We just want to take this opportunity to thank you all for the passion you’ve demonstrated this past week, the feedback you've provided, and your patience whilst we worked on a resolution that worked for us all.

We're excited to see what you think of 117Scape's incredible work, and we can't wait to see screenshots of you enjoying your favourite areas once 117Scape's HD Plugin goes live!

Thank you for your ongoing support.

The Old School Team

Glad to hear they reversed their decision, but I've still cancelled my subscription.

I'm going to sit out for a few months minimum, if only to let my small part of their $138m+ revenue disappear for a while.

Finally the HD lads can be satisfied and let us have our classic OSRS too. Everyone wins. Well played Jagex!


What "classic OSRS"? I think OSRS is still going ahead with their own new graphics project they talked about in the Art Direction livestream.
