Introduction[edit | edit source]

RuneScape Wiki is looking for old game data to archive the history of RuneScape. If you played the game in 2003-2007, there might be valuable game data on your computer.

Obtaining old game data would allow us to discover the following:

  • Lost music tracks
  • Unused items
  • Unused NPCs
  • Unused maps
  • Exploring anomalies such as the World map leak

The data would also help us getting a better understanding on how the game was updated over time.

Discoveries[edit | edit source]

Here's some interesting discoveries that have been made:

How to contribute[edit | edit source]

Finding game data[edit | edit source]

First, you will need to check if you have a cache on your computer. To do so navigate to the following folders:

  • C:\WINDOWS\ .jagex_cache_32
  • C:\WINDOWS\ .file_store_32
  • C:\Users\[username]\jagexcache

Note: It is possible that the folder has an added number, like jagexcache1 or jagexcache2.

The data inside the folder should look like this (may be slightly different: p7dFD90.png

If you find anything, proceed to create a ZIP archive of the folder containing the game data. Please include the date of folder in the .ZIP file name.

The next step will be to upload it on Google drive.

Uploading on Google drive[edit | edit source]

  • Create a Google account if necessary.
  • Go to https://drive.google.com/
  • Click on the "New" button, select "Import file"
  • Select the ZIP file.

  • Locate the ZIP file in your Google Drive folder, right click "Share".
  • Click on "Anyone with a link".
