Update: The package no longer verifies sha256sums, but only the PGP signature.

As always, if makepkg complains about an "unknown key", you'll have to import it:

# gpg --recv-key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B

Notice for AMDGPU Cinnamon users: The runescape client seems to spaz out the open source AMDGPU drivers when launching the game, causing a lot of screen flickering and graphical corruption/artifacts to appear at random positions on the display.

I'm having the same problem as Louis6321 after a Nvidia driver update. Previously I had been able to work around it by downgrading the Nvidia driver package and its requirements, but this time it isn't working (I presume something else in my system has changed and now requires the latest packages).

Previous fix:
pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lib32-libcurl-compat-7.54.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lib32-curl-7.54.1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/nvidia-384.90-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/nvidia-utils-384.90-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

If I come across another workaround I'll add it here.

I'm having the same problem... although I must admit I'm on Fedora 26, not Arch.

The choppy audio problem started a few weeks ago and is usually resolved by closing and reopening the game multiple times until the audio sounds normal.

More recently though (last few days) there was a Nvidia update and since then the screen is black (music plays if it's not muted) when the game opens and I can't do anything. The loading screen loads fully, the game window pops up and it's completely black.
I haven't found a fix yet... I suspect it was the Nvidia update. Would be interested to know if cjmick also has Nvidia.

Not a clue what the cause of the choppy audio problem is though. At least there is a (somewhat annoying) workaround.

No network traffic that I can see. It does try to load according to the progress bar, it gets to the end and that is it. Music continues to play, although it is very choppy sounding. Tried completely uninstalling and installing, reboot and still same issue. Tried different DE and same issue, I thought it could be with i3wm, but it isn't.

@cjmick: Do you at least see network traffic? (i.e. does it *try* to load something?)

Try removing the cache at ~/Jagex/.

Tried installing, music is very choppy. Says loading application resources, but nothing loads. I get no errors through Cli when running from there. Currently using i3wm.

Then it has nothing to do with this package. I have nothing to do with your xdg-open configuration.

Ya it's a full URL I try not to give the full URL here as I'm afraid someone might use it to gain entry into my account.

grawity commented on 2017-11-02 17:26

@fusion809: Does it *literally* say "https://..." with the dots and all, or is it a proper URL like ""

This was working for me in the past but recently I just get a black screen on load. I can't seem to find a way to debug the client--anyone have any ideas? I've tried just removing the ~/Jagex directory with no results.

RuneScape launcher fails to open Facebook/Google+ links for verification giving a malformed socket error and at the command line:

xdg-open: no method available for opening '...'

I have tried adding a file called https.xml to ~/.local/share/mime/packages with the contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<mime-info xmlns="">
<mime-type type="x-scheme-handler/https">
<comment>foo file</comment>
<icon name="x-scheme-handler/https"/>
<glob pattern="https://*"/>

running `update-mime-database ~/.local/share/mime && xdg-mime default firefox-nightly.desktop x-scheme-handler/https` (this attempt to fix the problem is based on the ArchWiki article but still I'm getting the same error. Even when I run:

xdg-open 'https://...'

from the command-line I get the aforementioned command-line error. Oddly this problem doesn't happen when I install and then run RS using its Flatpak in Flathub.
