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 (or skip verification at your own risk):

I am having the nvidia black screen issue. I tried rolling back the drivers back to 384.90 and even tried manually installing the nvidia 384.111 drivers from the nvidia website using

It appears that every nvidia driver higher than 384 will cause this problem. In order to get it working again it appears that the kernel cannot be updated past 4.13. In addition to this the nvidia proprietary drivers can’t be upgraded past 384.90 which are the highest 384 versioned drivers available from the arch archives. With jagex essentially ignoring this issue on the forums there's not much else that can be done.

Here's a list of URLS to the arch archive.


DKMS for those who prefer that instead:


For the adventurous:

This apparently works on 4.14 according to some information I found on the runescape official forums. But I didnt try it.

Hope this is fixed soon.


I downgraded my kernel to 4.13.7-1, installed the related kernel headers, and then downgraded the nvidia drivers to nvidia-dkms-384.90-1. That fixed my issue completely. There's definitely something wrong with the NXT client.

Do we have any idea why the floating loading window never closes?

bddenhartog commented on 2018-01-15 06:18

@Louis6321 that definitely sounds like a driver issue. Are you using the official, proprietary drivers? Have you looked for or filed an issue for the driver version you're using?

Does anyone have a fix for the Nvidia black screen problem? Had it for a few months now and it's a great shame I have to boot into Windows to play on NXT.

Does the issue occur if you manually log out, or manually return to lobby, via the Esc menu?

Either way, better report it to the RS forums instead.

I have a pretty weird, reproducible issue related to world selection and entering the game world.

On first sign-in, everything works great. It's only after automatically being returned to the lobby (afk timer) that this problem occurs - basically, the "world select" tab is empty, and neither of the "play now", or the favorited world buttons actually enter me into the game. The only way to get it working again is to close the client and restart it.

Starting from the command line, there is no error related to the actions of clicking the "play now" or favorited world buttons. I only have the "no version information available" warning from that appears when the client is first started.

Any ideas as to what is causing this, and how to resolve it?

EDIT: Upon testing various auth workflows further, this only appears to happen when authenticating over OAuth via Google.

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.
