Clear Java Client Cache

Game Versions: RS_Rune_final.png  App_Icon-Circle.png These steps are for the Java client.

RuneScape stores some files locally on your device. Sometimes one or more of these files can become corrupted and cause problems starting the game. If this is the case clearing your cache may help resolve this issue. 

Note: After you have cleared the cache it will need to reload again. This will cause a noticeable performance drop, don't worry once the cache has completed loading your gameplay will be back to normal.
