RuneScape‘s latest patch has fixed crash caused by multitasking with other Windows applications, reduced memory usage of animation system and more.
Find the full list of patch notes below:
– The Skeletal Horror has now packed up his disco, leaving the environment behind him consistently lit.
– The shadows on snow have been toned down.
Skills, D&Ds and Minigames
– Using the mix option on a regular or shiny tortle shell bowl without the required ingredients will now open the correct make-x category.
– A redundant ‘Pie’ category has been removed from the Cooking make-x interface.
– Using the Borrowed Power wish from Pauline will no longer disconnect the player if using the wrong spellbook.
– Players who have not read some post-quest dialogue after Shilo Village can now attack Hydrix dragons in the Sunken Pyramid.
– The Sunspear item charge tooltip now accurately updates.
– Regenerate is no longer triggered by Revolution.
– Revolution now fires combat abilities when stats are boosted.
– Items will now consistently appear in a Beast of Burden when using the ‘Give BoB items’ option.
– The Dungeoneering map will now correctly save in the third interface layout preset. Note: You’ll need to save a new preset over preset 3 to fix the issue.
– Fixed an issue which prevented quickchat from working on quickchat worlds.
– Fixed lag when minimising/maximising in normal mode on some Windows systems.
– Fixed possible cause of 3D world freezing but interface remaining responsive on Windows.
– Fixed possible cause of crashes when multitasking with other applications on Windows.
– Fixed some billboards from not appearing in the environment.
– Fixed device resets causing a logout from lobby or authenticator code screen.
– Fix an issue where NXT could launch multiple error pages.
– Reduced memory usage of animation system.
– Reduced driver overhead of animation system (especially on AMD graphics cards).
– Improved robustness of device loss recovery (less likely for things to render broken or crash after PC sleep, driver crash, minimising compatibility mode, switching GPU, etc).
– Reduced CPU usage of animation, picking and entity logic systems, especially at framerates well below 50.
– Reduced work being done by logic loop during frame drops/stutters, which was previously multiplying their length.
– Reduced stutter/frameskip when loading or moving around, especially on AMD graphics cards.
– Reduced instances of white/noisy pixels on terrain at extreme glancing angles with anisotropic filtering enabled.
– Implemented immutable texture storage extension, which many improve performance on some GPUs.
