Runescape Needs Bug-fixing!

Alright, to begin with I would like to say as an experienced RS player (since about year '05 with several accounts, both member and non-member) that Runescape has become more unstable. There are now more bugs than ever, more technical issues than ever.

 

For example; The Runescape client now crashes for me quite more often than I feel necessary. It has crashed by various reasons 16 times since I first installed it on Tuesday. 16 times!

 

2 of the 16 crashes was because of Java problems (Which I fixed right away by reinstalling Java), another 2 of the 16 crashes the client sent me to the website saying there has been an error (Oh, really now?). And the remaining has been because of graphical issues where I couldn't get out of the renowned "Safe Mode".

So, as you probably can tell just by now, I have had some issues with Runescape.

I don't know if I'm the only one out here with the same experience, but a quick Google search showed me alot of threads on various forums showing people having issues with the technical side of Runescape, be it safe mode issues or graphical/audio issues.

 

I kinda wish that Jagex would pay more attention to bug-fixing than pushing out new content at the moment.

 

I have reported all the in-game bugs I have found and could replicate until now but in writing, I cannot play the game more than 2-3 minutes before a crash happens. 

I have re-installed Windows 10, I have re-installed the Runescape client and Java numerous times, I have also re-installed DirectX. And my Nvidia graphic drivers are up to date and freshly re-installed, but I'm still having problems. No programs are to interfere with the Runescape client installation either as I currently only got Skype, Steam and Runescape installed.

 

I'm sorry to say I'm about to cancel my membership because of this, because I won't pay for a game I cannot play, my economy is tight enough as is.

 

I've recently read on a forum that IF Anti-aliasing and Bloom were activated, it could cause the Runescape Client to enter Safe Mode more frequently than if it were disabled. As this is my main problem I went ahead and disabled these options in good faith that it would solve my problems with the client.

 

NOW guess what happened!

 

To my despair I now cannot exit Safe Mode at all!

I have deleted my Jagex cache-files as well as the preference.dat and preference2.dat files to no avail! Even re-installing or repairing the client won't work!!!

 

I'm now a VERY VERY tiny step to uninstalling Runescape for good and removing my membership!
