How to clear your OldSchool Cache on a Windows PC

What is my OldSchool Cache?

Much like RuneScape, OldSchool stores some files locally on your PC which we refer to as the OldSchool Cache. Sometimes one or more of these files can become corrupted and cause problems starting the game. One of the signs that the problem is being caused by your Cache files is that no error message will appear and the client will close itself. The important thing is not to worry, as deleting the locally stored files will solve the problem!

What do I need to do?

Click the Start button --> Search and copy this directory into the search bar:


Once you have found this folder, please delete it!

I've deleted the files, what now?

NOTE: You will have to re-download your cache after following these steps. During this time you may notice a slight decrease in performance.

Now we've finished clearing your OldSchool Cache files, please now try to launch the game again. You should now find that the problem is solved! If the issue remains after following these steps, please check out our other solutions to common client issues.
