Right! The gimmick and dramas were good for popcorns the first few days, but as expected the whole graphics thing is just a non-issue.


Not really.

I still personally dislike this update as we were promised that the graphics wouldnt change.

Sadly like most other things, i guess jagex have to please the vocal minority.


It really is the worst outcome. Third party clients march on. Jagex keeps working on an unpolled graphics update.
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!

Graphics and game engine updates are for the integrity of the game. They aren't going to be polled anyway. Actually, graphics updates have been polled in the OSRS Survey in 2019. OSRS just elect not to release results of any of the polled questions.

???

No they arent.

Im sure if osrs jmods wanted to add eoc to osrs they wouldnt just do so w/o a poll even though that involved graphic changes as well.

So there no reason why this HD update shouldnt get a poll.

EoC is neither graphics nor integrity updates. It is just the usual game update. I think if OSRS want to add EoC they are going to poll it.

Integrity updates are ones like the Steam C++ client. Have OSRS ever asked us if we want a C++ client? No, and even if they did and we voted no Jagex would still do it because it was an integral update to deal with the eventual decommissioning of the Java client.

Did armor and wepons not get graphicly changed with EoC? Last i checked they did. So how you can say it wasnt one is baffling.

So once again going by your logic, it wouldnt need one.

Can you tell the future now?

Just because java is going by the wayside, doesnt mean jagex cant find a way to still work with it.

I mean rsc was around for nearly 15years even though that was more outdated than java.

So yes, id hope we get a vote on this as IMO, everything should get a vote as that was something we were promised when osrs started.

Just that some armors are changed in EoC doesn't mean graphics is EoC. If OSRS is going to add EoC they don't have to change any graphics like the RS2 era.

OSRS Jmods already said they are making the C++ client so that they don't have to be bothered by the future of Java in a livestream. Not that I can look into the future, it is the OSRS Jmods said they are planning for the future.

Some? You do know EoC affected all armors/weapons right? If you dont understand something just say so. Never hurts to do so.

Yes and plans can change.

Take this HD update for example.

In the past OSRS mods were against it now they're not.

So whos to say this C++ or w/e wont plan out well? Never know whats going to happen.

Again, if OSRS put in EoC they don't have to make any graphics change. They can work on their own OSRS HD graphics and EoC as 2 separate projects. They won't have to poll the graphics project because it is an integrity update but they likely will poll the EoC project as it is a content update which is optional to OSRS.

Not that I don't think plans can change, I just pointed out I didn't make any claim on the future as you falsely quoted - it was the OSRS Team who told us about their future plan.
