The Jagex Launcher offers a new and improved experience for RuneScape and beyond. It allows you to access Jagex games seamlessly and securely, all in one place and with the safety and convenience of a single login.
The Jagex Launcher is currently in Open Beta. It launches with the ability to remember your account details for quick, secure access to your RuneScape account and has lots of new features on the way.
Do I need to install my games separately?
If you already have RuneScape or Old School installed, the Jagex Launcher will automatically find them. Alternatively, you can install through the Launcher.
How do I switch between accounts?
You can add multiple RuneScape accounts to the Jagex Launcher and switch between them without entering your password every time:
- Open the Launcher
- Press 'Manage accounts' and 'Add an account'
- Follow the prompts
- Add up to 10 accounts
- To add third-party accounts such as Facebook and Google, you'll need to add a login email first
You can now choose which character you want to play on via the drop-down in the Launcher. If you want to play on multiple accounts, select the character and press 'play' for each.
Can I install and launch RuneLite via the Launcher?
Yes! You'll be able to easily switch between RuneLite and the official game client:
- Head to the Jagex Launcher and log in to your Old School RuneScape account
- Click the drop-down next to the 'Play' or 'Install' button
- Choose 'RuneLite'
- If you haven't already downloaded RuneLite press 'Install' and you'll be directed to the official RuneLite website
- If you already have RuneLite installed, the Jagex Launcher will look for it in the folder in which it was originally installed. If the files have been moved the Launcher won't be able to find them. Try reinstalling RuneLite using the RuneLite installer.
Do I need to use the Jagex Launcher?
During the Open Beta phase, players are free to play through the regular clients or from the Jagex Launcher. Eventually, the Launcher will become the only way of accessing any Jagex game, including RuneScape and Old School.
Can I play both RuneScape and Old School at the same time?
The Launcher can only run one game at a time.
What if I don't want to use the Jagex Launcher?
Currently, the Launcher is optional. Eventually, the RuneScape and Old School RuneScape standalone clients will no longer be supported. If you don't want to use the Launcher just yet, you can follow these links to install the standalone RuneScape or Old School clients.
