I first off would like to state that I am very please where the HTML client is heading. I think this is an absolute must for Runescape Gold evolution as a competitive MMORPG.
Not exactly sure where the BETA stands at this point from a start to finish development standpoint, but I thought I would share some info about bugs I have observed in the past week playing HTML5.
1: Chat Bug: Has trouble catching the beggining of your typing, Usually misses the first letter or two.
2: Squeal of Fortune: Extremely glitchy from a visual perspective. image cuts in and out. The whole window flashes.
3: Load Times: A bit slow, especially on log in & teleporting to new locations.
4: Inconsistent & Bad FPS: MY rig will run about any game out there on max settings no problem. BETA fps seems to have some issues acquiring resources somehow.
5: Combat: I am unable to effectively conduct combat in BETA. FPS Drop, Abilities lag and don’t initiate or respond in a timely manner. I have to load the regular java client in order to PVM.
Not sure if this helps based on the information given above, but will provide it regardless.
OS: Windows 8 (64bit)
CPU: Intel i7-3930K 3.2Ghz (OC 4.4Ghz)
RAM: 32GB DDR3 2400
VIDEO: Dual EVGA GTX780 (SLI)
I reformatted my computer this morning; well overdue to say the least.
I will say that I have seen an increase in performance from previously. I have been averaging around 20-30fps in the battle for Lumbridge. (granted this is much lower than it should be)..
