Changes to how you play Old School RuneScape

A recent update to Google Chrome drops support for the Java plug-in required to play Old School RuneScape.

As such, it's no longer possible to play Old School RuneScape in the Chrome browser.

To continue playing, install the Old School RuneScape game client. The client is made by Jagex and available for Windows and Mac.
