Why does RuneScape run so slowly?

Lag indicates that there is an issue with the connection between your machine and our servers. It is frequently the result of a problem with your domain name system (DNS) or an issue with your Internet service provider. Check Runescape and Old School on Twitter and the forums to see if there is a service outage.

If you are experiencing performance issues, try these steps:

Check your network connection - Make sure you are connected to the internet before playing.

Clear your cache - Press the Windows key + R then type in "cmd" and press enter. In the command window that opens, type in ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. This will clear your DNS cache and force it to re-query its servers for information.

Change your server - If you are having performance issues and only play on certain servers, change your server association. To do this, go to the "Options" screen when you log in. Here you can select which region server you want to play on. Click "OK" to save changes.

Update your software - Runtime errors may be caused by outdated software. Try to update any outdated programs before playing.

Decrease graphics settings - Some gamers decrease the quality of their graphics settings in order to improve performance. However this leads to decreased visual quality so should not be done as a first step.

Does downloading RuneScape cause viruses?

It isn't a virus. Because no current web browsers support Java plugins, you must utilize the Legacy RuneScape client (now mostly used for OldSchool RuneScape) to play the game. This client is not compatible with modern operating systems or web browsers and therefore can contain harmful components such as spyware and adware.

If you have an old version of Windows installed on your computer, it may be able to run the Legacy RuneScape client. Consult the documentation that came with these older versions of Windows regarding how to do so.

How can I play Old School RuneScape on my computer?

Even though Old School RuneScape is no longer playable in a web browser, you may download the software on your Windows or macOS computer. You must have a Java Runtime Environment version installed on your machine. To download Java, go to https://www.java.com/en/. Once downloaded and installed, run the program. Login with your old school username and password to start playing!
