    This week we thought those pesky penguins were up to their old tricks, but it turns out that it was only the Game Tech team getting way too into their update to the Linux Client. Read on to find out more about that, plus the latest additions to the Merch Store and the RuneFest Stream Survey.

    RS Linux Client Improvements

    We’ve updated the RuneScape Linux client! If this applies to you, then read on. If not, you might want to skip this bit – it gets somewhat technical.

    So… the Linux client is now built against Ubuntu 18.04 and may no longer work on older distributions. For Ubuntu, you’ll need to update your launcher using either APT or the Software Updater to play. For other Linux distributions, you'll need to manually install the new launcher or await an update to any third-party package you may be using. The old launcher may continue to work, but you will be missing many of the improvements.

    Here’s a list of the improvements you can look forward to in this version:

    • General game optimisations
    • Fixed an issue with audio crackling
    • Fixed a potential crash on start-up
    • Fixed incorrect icon on the game window
    • Fixed an issue where the launcher window would not disappear once the game had started
