At least there is one piece of good news that I can bring today, which is that I have once again updated our cache to the most recent version of OSRS, allowing us to add new features that have been introduced in OSRS in the past year.
Because of this cache update, we are now working on two more additions that our community are most certainly looking forward to: The Nightmare of Ashihama (who is known to drop Nightmare staffs and Inquisitor equipment) and the Basilisk Knights (that are known to drop Basilisk jaws to create the Neitiznot faceguard). We'll also be sure to add the Gauntlet in a future update (after CoX and the Inferno).
However, before we actually release this new cache on our live server, I first want to make sure that everything in the game still works as intended. To that end, I have set up a new test server which you can access by downloading our latest stand-alone testclient here: link.
This cache update has brought a lot of changes in NPC ID's and obect ID's, as well as some parts of the world map since the last time we did this kind of major cache update in May 2019. That's why we are organizing a bughunter contest on our testserver to ensure there will be no bugs when we release the new cache on the live server.
To participate, simply download our portable testclient and test as many of our current features as possible to see if anything has stopped working because of the new cache. If you find any bugs (that are otherwise not a bug on the live server), please report it as a reply on this topic. Make sure to include your game username in one of your bug reports so I know where to add the credits at the end of the contest.
The most important things to look for are objects (PoH furniture, rocks, trees, banks, just to name some), NPC's (wrong spawns, wrong drops, NPC's you cannot properly interact with ...) and noclipping checks that might have become broken.
Please note that this new cache brings no actual changes to the game yet. It's simply a necessary preparation so that we can start adding new features, such as the Nightmare of Ashihama, Basilisk Knights and the Gauntlet.
A couple of things to test (so you have an idea what to look for): Some useful commands on the testserver: The contest will be ongoing until 11 July 2020, unless new bugs are still being reported close to the deadline, in which case we may extend it.

Bughunter contest rules & guidelines
- Whenever you encounter an in-game bug, make a post about it as a reply to this thread. Please try to be as specific as possible so we can reproduce the bug.
- Make sure you include your in-game username in one of your bug reports, so I know where to add the credits (if you never state your in-game name in any reports, you will be excluded from the contest).
- The first person to report a bug gets the points for it.
- Known bugs or bugs that are also present in the live production server do not result in any points.
- Please report one bug per post to prevent people from cheating by editing their old posts. This means double posting in this thread is allowed.
- When two or more people work together to find a bug , they all get the full amount of points for it.
- You get points based on the severity of a bug:
- 1 point for minor bugs, visual glitches & unintended pvm safespots.
- 2 points for relatively minor bugs, things that don't work or wrong ID's (for example an NPC having the wrong ID or being spawned in the wrong place).
- 3 points for general bugs.
- 4 points for major bugs.
- 5 points for game-breaking bugs.
- 10 points for dupes or massive exploits.
