Many of you were reporting instability and FPS lag issues after our recent update which introduced the in-game worldmap and two-step verification.

As you know, RuneScape came out in 2001 and could run on just about any hunk of junk with a dial-up connection. The computers back then had less power than your smartphone, which is why Jagex optimized this game in many ways private server developers have since overlooked. This is one of the reasons you experienced frame drops when the world map, a massive project, was released in RSCR.

Good news after the jump...

Well, n0m has had a breakthrough which caused him to rewrite entire portions of the client system. This has optimized the game to make it run much more smoothly. As a result, we are now enjoying a massive increase in FPS in-game, on PC and droid! These optimizations also allowed us to reduce the world map size by 100MB.

In short, your RSCR experience should now be faster than ever before, even faster than our client was before the world map!

Other fixes:
-Projectile bug fixed
-Staff crowns fixed

Note:
On some slower devices, if you're walking around / performing actions with the world-map open, the game may still run slowly until you close it. This will be fixed soon.

Stay tuned in the Development Logs and Discord for updates in progress!

Best regards,
Billy

Not trying to be an ass here but I myself have been playing RSC long enough to have nemorized most locations that I would seldom have need for the map. With the exception of Karamja and the Ogre Onclave. I can see how this feature would really help out newcomers and people still new to the game. I doubt even veterans would have every square inch of this game entirely memorized. I still have trouble memorizing where stuff is in tree gnome stronghold and I pick flax there all the time

We are putting effort into every aspect of development. There were bugs fixed in this patch that weren't announced, I'll gather a list of them soon.

"btw any1 who played RSC knows every spot on the map and IF they didn't they sure as hell know how to use google....."
It really seems like people don't. Besides, not everyone can be bothered to google and not everyone will know where to start. Worldmap is easily accessible and shows everything, not only RSC areas but also RSCRevolutions custom content. You can't see what fish you are able to get from a fishing spot from a bare PNG image, or type quest name into search bar to see the exact point in the map where it's starting point is, can you? This world map is much more than just a map, it's the most important guide and tool game can have. Not everyone has been here for 10 years and only to PK.

If you ignore this fact that there's new players who haven't played RSC before and do nothing to help them get into the game, you will lose a large group of people willing to play this game, only because you are stubborn and assume everyone is on same level of knowledge as you.

+1 for helpin noobs out, noobs make RS RS. that being said I feel like GPS is the reason even our vets don't have everything memorized, no one has spacial knowledge anymore, I will say that I do though, got errr place almost memorized, the only thing that throws me off is where specifically underground and interior areas sometimes lie relative to the overworld.

Do this

Uninstall
Clear your cache,
then DL the newest apk.    https://www.rscrevolution.com/download. … oid_Client
When you open client, IF it says update available... tell it do not install

yo @n0m holy shit lol wat u do to the game

I played here 3 and a half years or so now, never known it to feel this smooth, with the world map implemented too that's insane lol. u are well and truly a god

I honestly had my doubts when I first heard about the map and when I saw n0m saying how much memory it was using, I had a feeling it could cause fps problems etc for everyone

but the fact u have managed to implement a fully working and accurate world map and at the same time make the server smoother than its ever been and use far less CPU than any other server is just fking incredible lol, why people play other servers still i'll never fkin know - you're by far the most experienced, dedicated and passionate developer currently on the scene. keep up the good work

I've noticed a huge difference in gameplay since this last update, main one being delays are now for me a thing of the past. I can change direction almost instantly whereas before it was super delayed. So 10/10 GJ.
