C++ Client Updates

We're back with a long-awaited update for the C++ Client! Are you ready to level up your loot? Let's take a look.


Remember: these features will only be available on Mobile (Android and iOS) and Steam!

Ground Item Indicators


Keep your eye on the prize with Ground Item Indicators! This handy feature makes it easier to identify what’s on the floor, whether that’s random items scattered across Gielinor or some shiny new loot.


You can find this feature on the sidebar - make sure to enable it in the Popout Settings! By default, indicators show the item’s name and its Grand Exchange value, but there’s a plethora of options available to customise your experience.


Settings... all the wonderful settings!


You'll be able to customise up to five tiers of loot, arranged by value. Filter out stuff under a certain value, change the colour of the highlight, and more!


Aside from making everything pretty, you’ll also be able to change between the G.E. and Alchemy value of each item, indicate when an item is about to despawn, and show when an item is visible to other players around you. It’s all designed to help you keep on top of your precious loot!


Here's what it looks like when you've got despawn and visibility options on.


We’ve also included a handy Edit Mode, which lets you interact with the items around you to hide or highlight certain objects.


To make things even easier, you can use filters to remove certain items from the indicator. For example, if you don’t want to see any items with the word ‘Bones’ in the name, you can type *Bones into the filter list and it will remove any item containing that word from your indicator. Pretty cool, right?


This shot shows off the easy-to-use 'Edit Mode'


Loot Tracker


Next up, we've got the Loot Tracker, a handy little tool that will keep a tally of all the goodies you've acquired on your adventures.


Tracking through time!


The tracker will only show a total of 10 sources at any one time, but will retain memory of any previous loot you’ve tracked. For example, if you kill 10 guards and then chop 10 different types of trees, only the latter will appear in the Loot Tracker – but if you kill another guard, then you’ll see all your previous loot and the newly-acquired drops.


Just like the Ground Item Indicators, you’ll be able to filter what loot is tracked using the Options menu, and even hide options in the Side Bar!


Hovering over the objects in the Tracker will let you see either the G.E. price or Alchemy value.


You can also expand or minimise the individual tabs, or clear them by right-clicking and closing them.


On the left, you've got G.E. prices, some tabs expanded and ignored objects shown. On the right, Alchemy prices, all tabs minimised and ignored objects not shown. The wonders of technology!


Other Updates


Before we go, we’ve got two smaller but meaningful options for you.


First up, we have the Master Volume slider that will help you pump up the volume on every sound in the game – or mute them all just in time for your next Zoom call.



Meanwhile, those of you using the Steam version of the C++ Client will now be able to access some slick Anti-Aliasing features that’ll make your experience smoother than ever.

Other Changes

With last week’s update to Combat Achievements, we were made aware of an issue where Ghommal’s Hilt 1 could be used at Barrows to negate the Prayer Drain effect. As we’d intended for this benefit to only be made available from Medium Tier and above rewards, we’ve fixed the bug – you’ll need Ghommal’s Hilt 2 or above to access this benefit.


As for this week’s other changes:

  • Expanded Activity HiScores from a minimum KC of 15 to a minimum KC of 10. Players in the 10-15 range should find their scores are added gradually after some more gaming sessions. This change is part of a long-term project to expand the HiScores, which we’re undertaking in small steps to reduce the load on the system.
  • Updated the Observatory Assistant’s animation to stop it from freezing.
  • Added a more convenient chat option to restart the target minigame in the Ranging Guild.
  • The Clue Helper now specifies the correct type of Greenman’s Ale when a mature one is required.
  • Sigmund no longer wanders off in the middle of cutscenes.

Discord Stage

Join us for a Discord Stages discussion this Friday with the team working on Old School RuneScape's first new skill!


It's a great chance to submit your questions live for us and get them answered directly by the J-Mods, including those who work in our engine team. This week, we're sharing our ideas for the navigational mechanics within Sailing, as well as how Gielinor's map and sea-scale could work.


If all goes well, we expect to share a more detailed blog on this topic with you sometime next week.


The New Skill Player Council Discord is open to everyone, so make sure you're in the server to share your feedback and keep up-to-date.
