That said, we have sadly seen unacceptable levels of abuse toward individual staff members on social media in the last 24-hours, which we will not tolerate.


And Jagex is going to do what about this, other then apparently reward them with the thing they wanted to begin with? Because I know you won't stop using social media, so I can't help but see this as rewarding people for being abusive.
You can feel what you want. Jagex fixed the real problem. ;)

I support any and all Runelite vetted graphical plugins. Look at a game like Minecraft and how much community driven content has done for the game. OSRS is an aged game with limited resources keeping the content rolling. With that in mind it seems silly to actively go against incredible plugins like HD Runelite.

The community is frustrated because there are a multitude of problematic 3rd party plugins which don't seem to be being addressed - but this benign plugin that everyone is stoked for get squashed. Old School can't just *retain* 10+ year vets. It needs new players. Graphical plugins play a huge part in attracting new players. Even Runelites gpu plugin + skybox makes the game 10x more enjoyable.

I have played runescape for 20 years. Over that time my reasons for playing have changed. The ability to have alternate skins of the game is very exciting and compelling. I truly hope that projects like HD Runelite are not only permitted, but encouraged. They are not competing with Jagex's version. Nobody should care what visual skin people choose to use, but that they are playing the game in the first place.

You can't really compare an MMORPG to a game like minecraft or even skyrim since that in itself is a SINGLE player game, not an MMO, where the mods or updates you force upon people may not be what others wanted. It would be a better analogy to compare this graphical plugin to something like WoW or what FF14 has to offer. Blizzard does not allow people to use graphic enhancing addons like iMorph and you'd be a laughing stock if you tried to come up with some kind of graphical update that you wanted to make for classic wow. As far as I know FF14 does not allow any plugins or mods or addons whatsoever and any mention of them in the game is frowned upon and reportable.

Like you said, there are limited resources to keep OSRS going. I do not think taking resources away from much more valuable parts of the team

to then give to the art team to have them create a whole new client, and then subsequent resources added down the line to keep updating this different version of osrs graphics, is a viable solution.

The problem with this plugin is that the person who created it did not get permission from Jagex. Sure he made a lot of noise about it throughout it's development but I have yet to see any source saying that Jagex gave this person permission to use their IP to basically rewrite the game's graphical engine. This plugin in particular is not benign just because it doesn't directly affect the average user, but it is definitely a slap in the face to Jagex as far as running a company goes.

OS has been getting plenty of new players, but the problem is the world itself is too "maxed" out already and in my opinion, needs a clean slate and fresh start for all. I don't think the playdoh-like graphics play any part at all in attracting newer players or making the game more enjoyable, and I'd like to see some numbers backing up that claim. This past year runescape and os have seen the most players ever. That is without any graphical update to osrs.

There are alternate skins of the game if you would log onto the 20 year old version you say you've played. I just hope you don't ruin oldschool for the rest of us.

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.

Jagex has no choice but to give in to the community after all 2007Scape was brought back FOR THE COMMUNITY and everything was to be voted on in the polls BY THE COMMUNITY. Just because you can doesn't mean you should especially when massive amounts of P2P subscriptions just ended. I'm sure The Carlyle Group isn't happy either as it's their pockets taking the hit.

Original message details are unavailable.
Yesterday we contacted the developers of known HD projects and we asked them to stop development of their projects, because this is a project we are directly investigating at Jagex. We look forward to being able to share progress as our own in-house project with Old School's visuals unfolds.


Is it being investigated or being worked on?

Original message details are unavailable.
Our conversations today have also included 117Scape and Adam from RuneLite and we are actively exploring options on how we can work together to offer 117Scape’s plug-in as a bridge until our own version is ready for release.


Ready for release???? I don't remember anyone voting on this!!?? Why is developer time being spent on this when Jagex has said time and time again that OSRS HD is NOT happening?

Ban all third party clients. Or don't. The game has a lot of problems that need to be worked on, and HD OSRS isn't one of them. Especially now that the majority of users are already using cheating clients. And they probably won't be compatible with YOUR version of OSRS HD.
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!
