Build number

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape
Jump to: navigation, search

The Build Number is the number given to the RuneScape client. It can be seen in the bottom-right corner of the Developers Console. Most of the time RuneScape is updated the build number is increased by one. Players were not able to see the build number until the Developers Console was made available to everybody on 15 September 2010. The option to see it is removed on the NXT client, but it can be viewed by right clicking "rs2client" found in C:\ProgramData\Jagex\launcher and clicking on the details tab.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During build 666 the console's background turned from light purple to red; this is probably due to the fact that the number 6-6-6 is commonly associated with the devil. During build 667 the console returned to its original light purple colour.
  • When the Christmas 2011 event was released, the dev console appeared to have falling snow in the background and a snow drift at the bottom.
  • The last RuneScape Classic build number was 233, but engine updates made in 2009 upped it to 235.
