Managing your audio settings

Game Versions: RS_Rune_final.png  App_Icon-Circle.png

The audio settings tab allows you to:

  • Manage the volume of your in-game sounds
  • Set custom volume levels for Music, Sound Effects, Ambient Sounds and Voice Overs

Change audio settings
To find the audio settings tab in RuneScape:

  1. Login and connect to a world
  2. Press "Esc" and choose "Settings"
  3. Select the "Audio" tab

You will see this screen where you will be able to adjust the audio to your preference:

The Audio Settings interface is also home to the Music Player which can be dragged into the game window from here.

 

Audio options
The table below lists the options that you can change using this interface as well as information about what each slider affects:

Option

Description 

Channel:
Mono / Stero

Choose between sound coming out of one speaker (mono) or two speakers (stereo). Stereo sound is more atmospheric as it creates an illusion of multi-directional audible perspective.

Global Mute

Mutes all game sounds.

Music

This adjusts the volume of the songs in game. 

Sound effects

This adjusts the volume of the sound effects, such as fighting, or a NPC is about to launch a special attack. Heard by only you. 

Ambient sounds

This adjusts the volume of various environmental and atmospheric sounds. Heard by all players.  

Voice Over 

This adjusts the volume of any NPC spoken chat. 

 

Legacy Mode
In Legacy Mode you access the Audio Settings Interface in exactly the same way as outlined above. All of the functionality remains the same, but it does look a little different:

 

Old School
In Old School RuneScape you can access your Audio Settings via the spanner icon. In Old School you have the option to adjust: Music, Sound Effect and Area Sound volume.
