Well, I haven't been on SK in awhile due to the fact that I quit Rs quite awhile ago, but I got back on today for the event and I noticed the SK news page looked horribly bland and uninviting, unlike it used to. Also, the oh-so-convenient stats/price lookup utility on the right hand side is missing. Along with the "Play Runescape" button. I understand this was all part of the update, but having to open another window in SK to lookup anything is really, really annoying. Especially for the users that have slow computers. Please consider adding the "Play Runescape" button back as well..
However, despite what I mentioned above, great update!
Any time i switch pages, its always the same.
Error (enter random number over 1000 here)
Also, i cant open the update news on SK because it only gives me the error.
When i click no it wont open AT ALL.
You guys might wanna look into these annoying error plz.
I don't know if you've ever noticed, but while comparing two players it onlyl shows one arrow on every skille, instead of 2(if for example player 1 has 60 attack and player 2 has 59, there should be a green arrow on the right side and a red one on the left side and so on).
@Tomfell: Nice positive feedback. You a lvl 3 social skill noob? ;)
SwiftKit already pwned when it was SwiftSwitch and I think Bluelight Dev did an awesome job keeping all users happy with the best toolkit for a game I've ever seen.
I've been using it since about 2 weeks after SS came out and it has only gotten better and better.
Thanks Bluelight Dev, keep up the great work! Whiners always make the most noise, but you have legions of silent, satisfied, happy users.
A few of you are posting probelm with swiftkit that have been there for a while and can be easyly fixed by cheking out the knoladge base (Help Menu) or by posting them on the forums.
if Java is Freezing Try updating to Java version 6 update 17
if you are having issues with Widescreen post on the forums or under the view menu click Settings then uncheck "Disable browser auto-sizing"
Quite awesome to hear about Zybez joining forces directly with SwiftKit/SwiftSwitch. Now we just need to somehow get you and them listed over at Jagex. ;) Power to the client!
Keep up the outstanding job, Strider3282. And we miss you back home at RS2.
