In this tab, you'll see a "URL" box, containing the line;

rs-launch://www.runescape.com/k=5/l=$(Language:0)/jav_config.ws

 4

Change the 'www' to 'world1' (replacing 1 with your desired world). The line should now look like;

rs-launch://world1.runescape.com/k=5/l=$(Language:0)/jav_config.ws

Select 'OK', and reopen the client using the desktop shortcut.

 

In the Java client, this is done by changing the "-Dcom.jagex.config=" line in the RuneScape.prm file.
