  • Fixed an issue with the Pinball random event.
  • A few music tracks have changed categories.
  • Updated a hint to unlock a track.
  • The song "My Arm's Journey" has been made louder, as it was quite quiet before.
  • Binding runes at the Astral Altar was missing the usual informative message.
  • Random events were occasionally failing to put you back where you were whisked away from, but now they should.
  • Adjusted the code for the Varrock Palace wall shortcut near the Grand Exchange.
  • The Lumbridge Achievement Diary reward lamp can now be properly destroyed.
  • Improved the examines on overgrown cats.
  • The digging sound should correctly synchronise with various animations.
  • Added the ‘inventory is full’ sound when catching lava fish.
  • Fixed an issue when thieving and then clicking on a location like stairs, which has also introduced a behaviour change. If you were fighting an NPC, and someone else got caught picking its pocket, the NPC would previously walk out of combat and wander away. This meant that thieves could slow down players who wanted to fight the pickpocketable NPCs. The new code means that the NPC should be far less likely to wander out of combat.
  • Various random events now have bank deposit boxes in them so you don't have to drop anything if your inventory was full but need it to complete the event.
