The FunOrb files were removed, so a clean build is recommended[1]:

makepkg -C

Then, either move or remove the prms dir, to prevent them from appearing in the launcher dropdown:

mv "$HOME/.config/runescape/share/prms/" "$HOME/.config/runescape/share/prms_old/"

The language bar and copyright footer are finally always removed[2].

From what I see, 'perl-archive-extcract' is similar to 'perl-config-inifiles' and 'perl-io-stringy':
They all have bundled version, that is used if none is installed.
Since I've updated perl, I can't launch the client with gui.
Currently stuck with 'perl-wx' rebuild.
I'll update the package, when I'll find the solution.

It's probably related to perl update yesterday:

I did not have time yet to check for the consequences.

goakley commented on 2014-06-05 12:12

I had to install `perl-archive-extract` to run the executable. Should be added to dependencies?

ivan_p commented on 2014-05-03 21:36

libpng12 issue fixed.

If the game still crashes, then you need 'cairo-nogl':

ivan_p commented on 2014-04-28 13:12

I already had libpng12 installed as dependency for another package, so was not aware, that it's needed here.
I'll check this issue later.

I had to install libpng12 in order to run the game. Shouldn't this be a dependency? Without libpng12 installed, nothing happens if you klick "Play Now" because jagex crashes.

you able to help me test something later today or whenever you can?

ivan_p commented on 2014-03-10 19:20

Sorry for late response, I moved a home, now back online and all...

I had same problem once, updating the 'perl-wx' package fixed it.
If that package already is uptodate then you may probably need to rebuild it and/or to update/rebuild it's dependencies.

make sure you have perl-wx installed, also if it still doesnt work then make sure the menu shortcut launches "runescape" without any parameters
if it still does not work try launch the launcher using the command "runescape > ~/rs-debug.txt"
and then give us the contents of rs-debug.txt

My launcher is skipped and the game loads directly. How do I fix this? I like using the launcher for Old School too.
