Resizable RuneScape client!

07box let's you play RuneScape in a resizable window. It works by cloning the RuneScape window to a larger window that is overlaid ontop of the actual client. It hides your real cursor and displays a replacement cursor on the clone in a position relative to the actual cursor on the client. Real mouse clicks still take place in the actual client, by the user, without simulating anything, therefore it shouldn't break any RuneScape rules.

Notable new stuff in version 1.2

  • Screenshots are no longer placed in the same folder as 07box, but into users My Pictures folder instead. This is so screenshots are safe and in one place if you delete 07box, upgrade, use multiple versions or what ever.
  • Favourites - from the menu that pops up while holding Left Alt you can now choose to directly go to 2 preset worlds which can be changed in the configuration file (1 and 2, by default). 

  • No longer always on top. This took longer than I expected to implement, but was needed I believe.
  • Left click on mini now just activates 07box - brings it to the front if its below other windows, or brings it back onto screen if it's hidden. To hide 07box using Mini you now need to Right- or Middle click it.
  • Tweaked CSS so that the main page of Old School RuneScape and the world select page fit into 07box without a horizontal scroll bar.

  • Upon activating 07box the real RuneScape window needs to be brought to the top for a millisecond - that should no longer be visible to humans. I spent way too much time on this, but the overall program hopefully feels much cleaner now. This may cause lag on slower machines, how ever, so I may make it optional if there are complaints.
  • New experimental feature - Change mouse speed relative to the zoom level. If the clone is 2x the size then the cursor visually moves 2x faster. If this feels inaccurate/uncomfortable to you then you can set the "ChangeMouseSpeed" value to True in 07box.exe.config file. 
  • 1 version, Any CPU (prefer 64bit), instead of 64bit and 32bit versions
  • Loading gif when loading webpages - cause why the hell not. 
  • Hiding 07box using the popup menu should now work reliably
  • Don't have to hover 07box with the cursor in order to take a screenshot anymore, it just has to be active or you can use the popup menu button.
  • Exiting 07box should no longer sometimes cause the program to crash instead of exiting.
  • Better error messages for when your operating system doesn't support 07box or desktop composition is disabled.
