With next week's update, it'll no longer be possible to select the Software display mode in your RuneScape graphics settings. We're removing support for this mode in preparation for future updates to the RuneScape UI and to the game's content, with which our existing Software mode will be incompatible. While there'll still be a bound safe approach as a backup, the absence affectation modes for RuneScape will be DirectX and OpenGL.
Why are you making this change?
We have some truly amazing changes planned for RuneScape this year: massive improvements to the game's interface, and epic-scale content releases. These updates will be authoritative abounding use of the abilities of avant-garde cartoon cards that cannot be accurate by our absolute Software mode. A contempo archetype of the administration we are alive appear is the Bestiary which was appear a few weeks ago.
In recent tests, we've found that almost all hardware configurations benefit from choosing DirectX or OpenGL over the existing Software mode. There will, of course, always be a native Java safe mode to fall back on in the event of any problems.
We're confident that this is a change for the better, and it'll pave the way for some truly spectacular updates in the future!
