RuneScape private servers are not new, I’m sure most of you know that. But did you know the first RSPS was released more than 10 years ago? And did you know it was a single player game?

The RSPS scene came to life in 2004. A select group of people were interested in the RuneScape protocol. There was no intention to make a public RSPS for players to play on, but instead this group wanted to find out more information to create proper RuneScape bots.

Major RuneLocus update – IPS Community Suite

Today we’re here to announce a new, major update to the RSPS forum of RuneLocus.

For many years we have been using the well-known vBulletin forum software, but as technology moves on, it was about time our RSPS forum does the same. Therefore we have, after many suggestions made by you, successfully converted our forum to the brand new IPS Community Suite 4 software.

This upgrade brings a great number of changes to the RuneLocus forum, including a complete redesign to be faster, more efficient and of course responsive to make sure it is a pleasure to view and interact on any device.

As we continue to work on the website, we hope you’re all enjoying thew newly updated RSPS forum. If you have any feedback, don’t hesitate to post a message on the forum! :-)
