Runelite HD designer "117" posted on Reddit Tuesday, sharing the message from Jagex that was later verified by Jagex in its own blog post. Runelite HD operates as a plugin which will give an extensive visual overhaul to the original Runescape and can be observed the account of OSRS gold 117 on Twitter. Moderator 117 also said that they've spent about two thousand hours in the last two years working on Runelite HD.
"Yesterday we contacted the developers of known HD projects, and we asked that they stop developing their projects because this is a project that we are actively researching," Jagex stated. Jagex wrote to 117 that the company's work on the development of an HD variant of Old School Runescape was "still fairly early in the exploration phases" however "very active."
"Naturally this means that any fan-led initiative that is attempting to alter the way Old School RuneScape appears is in opposition to our plans," Jagex wrote to 117. "We believe it is essential that there is consistency regarding the way Old School looks as a result, so we'd like to make certain that our changes to the official version are the only ones we have available.
Hope that the news is that Jagex along with the Old School team are tackling the project with determination is something that excites you, even though it does mean that we must be politely asking you to buy osrs fire cape stop the personal project you are working on."
