Third-Party HD Clients Statement Update

Third-Party HD Clients Statement Update

Yesterday we aimed to clarify our stance on third-party HD clients and other projects that seek to radically change the visual appearance of the game.

We hear your feedback loud and clear and we’ve been discussing that feedback all day and, while discussions continue, we absolutely intend to act on it.

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.

We perfectly understand that you all have a voice in Old School, and that voice, at times, can be one of frustration regarding the decisions we make. Be assured that we always welcome your feedback, whether good or bad. We don’t always get it right, we are only human, and now we are rectifying our approach.

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. This team is filled to the brim with people of passion. Please try to remember that behind the crowns there are real people trying to do their best for the game and its community.

We know we need to do better in providing a clearer vision for our own client, why we made this decision yesterday and what this means to the game and community in the longer term. We will start to do this over the coming days.

We’ll continue to update you as we work to a resolution that works for all.

Thank you for your support.

The Old School Team
