Version Check

RuneScape

  • This extracts the necessary files out of the latest official runescape-launcher-amd64.deb package
  • :!: This currently expects the launcher package to be version 2.2.10, and may need a URL update for updated packages
  • :!: 2022/09/30: Ironically since this is a deb package, this does not work as-is on Ubuntu 22.04 because of libssl.so.1.1 missing; use this Snap instead
  • Last tested: 2022/09/26 on Fedora 36

Launcher

  • :!: Minor changes to the current runescape-launcher from 2.2.10 3)
  • :!: If PipeWire doesn't work, change the config to PulseAudio 4)
  • Any MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDEs should be occasionally checked with The Mesa driver matrix to see if they can be increased depending on the driver support
  • :!: 2022/09/27: SDL_VIDEODRIVER=wayland caused the launcher to crash on Wayland, but using x11 on Wayland works fine
