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):

gpg --recv-key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B

The workaround has been incorporated into (but with slightly lower latency value). If it doesn't help, edit the wrapper to bump the latency to 100ms or even 200ms, but then sound effects might become noticeably laggy.

Has there been an update on the sound issues? The forum post linked below is dead. Otherwise working and installed no problem.

If importing the key doesn't work because it's not on your keyserver. try: gpg --keyserver --recv-key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B

@HourGlass Check this thread for audio issue workaround,410,815,65955068,goto,1

Runescape works pretty well but there are a few issues, such as glitchy music and objects moving around the map like trees and bushes etc.

I am using the Nouveau driver with a GTX 1060.

Other than those few issues, the game is still very much playable.

Edit The moving graphic objects was fixed by using the proprietary drivers instead of Nouveau.

I'm having an issue with firewall when loading the nxt client

There was an error loading the game configuration from the website. If you have a firewall, check that this program is allowed to access the Internet. (7,28)

can someone help me to get it allowed? I can't seem to make it work.

Oh my god, yes! I can also confirm the black screen issue is resolved as of 390.25 :-)

Now it's just the choppy audio issue that remains... but I can live with that.

I'm on nvidia driver version 390.25, and I'm not getting the black screen issue anymore. If anyone is still using the 384 drivers to play, it may be worth trying to upgrade.

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.
