We're super excited about this new content. In short, this update contains:
1. A fully functional, interactive in-game world map, accessed in bottom-right corner of client 2. Added optional two-step verification for account security. Never lose your character, even if the hacker has your password! 3. Website is now secured with SSL (secure sockets layer), using https. Our new email server is also secured by SSL. 4. RSCR cache optimized and reformatted, now using a high-end obfuscator so our work doesn't get stolen
A standard in RPGs yet never before attempted in RSC, the in-game world-map is boon for new players and veterans alike.

See you out there! Billy, n0m, and RSCRevolution Staff
This update to me was an unusual swing and a miss. Ive been a dedicated player for a while now. A fair and helpful player who enjoys the classic i used to love back in the early 2000's. I play on a PC and have always gotten 35-40 frames per second and the game was smooth. Now Post update i cant even get the launcher to open or have it as a desktop shortcut (as ive always had) but whats worse is now i cant get more than 6 frames per second which is unplayable. Im not discrediting the Staff, ive always been a fan of everything this server does but to exchange all those frames per second for a nifty little map function in game is annoying because now it forces me to not be able to play. I know they did alot of security upgrades that admittedly i dont understand but again at what cost. All i want to know is, is there anyway i can go back to any semblance of what the game was yesterday? is this permanent or can it be fixed?
P.S. i just found out that if i make my window wicked small it brings my fps up to 12-15 but i used to be able to max the screen
P.P.S I just want to say that between the time i wrote the post and the time i logged on the next day the issue had resolved itself...so, sorry for the impatience on my part fellas.
Great job on that map, n0m & company. I hate you all but speaking on your innovation, like billard said, in the rsc community, you guys show more TLC for the game than any other gang out there and it shows in the program. Ya made it a good game to play, a good time away. Thanks.
