What is Open RuneScape Classic?

The project was officially begun in June 2018, though has roots spanning as far back as 2009 with "Open RSCD v25." The Open RuneScape Classic project has been a non-profit, community driven, open source initiative to build as close of a replica RSC game experience as possible, to allow custom features to be enabled with simple configuration file edits, and to keep the memory alive of what is now considered to be an abandon-ware game, RuneScape Classic (2001-2018). For over a decade, many private servers have come and gone and nearly all have had profit from donations, subscriptions, micro-transactions, and bribery as their sole interest. Education, open source, and information sharing were spurned in the interest of "leech proofing" code, money grabs, toxic individuals, DDoS attacks, and deception. The Open RuneScape Classic core team consists of real life professional developers, security consultants, dev ops managers, and wild animals.

General FAQ

May I donate or subscribe for perks? No donations nor subscriptions are accepted. We don't want any money. We also don't believe that dumping player money into ads will make any difference for long term player growth and retention. The best way to help the team is to help with submitting bug reports, submitting GitLab merge requests, and spreading the word about us to your friends so they will want to be a part of this too!

How often is Open RuneScape Classic updated? The development team is constantly working on updates. Code releases generally occur weekly on Sundays and the public worlds are restarted with updates shortly after the posting of patch notes.

How may I help? Join the Discord chat and come talk to us! Word of mouth recommendations, YouTube videos, and Twitch streams are welcomed for recruiting more players. There are many GitLab issue bug reports that need fixes too!

How do I run my own copy? Visit the Open RuneScape Classic game repository and follow the instructions. Open RuneScape Classic is Windows, Mac, and Linux compatible! There is an Android client as well, though no way to run a MySQL server, the game server, and game client at the same time on Android to allow an Android single player instance at this time. Feel free to join our Discord if you have questions.
