SwiftKit News

Update 1.43 - Lots of little stuff

It's been awhile since the last SwiftKit RS update. The reason for that is because nothing major has changed. We have however made a whole bunch of minor changes and fixes so instead of waiting for something big I've decided to push the update.

You will of already seen the new splash images on the Launcher. Instead of just picking one of the top five we decided to use all five. The Server Status was no longer working due to some changes on the server list page so the utility has had a bit of a revamp.

The skill calculators also took up most of this update, with some fixes and a whole bunch of additions. Including a Brawlers Gloves option, new potions, slayer monsters and other item additions.

Another minor but often requested change was the ability to set the hour field on the countdown timer.

Changes and Fixes:
+ New Launcher splash images.
+ You can now edit the hours in the countdown timer.
+ Updated the Server Status utility.
+ Added Brawlers Gloves option to the Skill Calculators.
+ Fixed a level required bug in the Quest Center.
+ Updated Slayer calc data.
+ Fixed a bug in Skills calculator that caused SwiftKit to crash.
+ Cavefish and Rocktail added to Fishing and Cooking calculators.
+ Arctic and Ivy added to the Woodcutting calculator.
+ New potions added to Herblore calculator.
+ Fairy Rings updated.

Dark Lotus @ 04 Nov 2020 02:26 pm

sarasword123 - if you double click on any skill the calculator will pop up.. and you should see some tabs on it that say SKILLS - FIGHTING - COMBAT < click on the combat tab if your strength is ranked then it will be filled in (if not enter in your strength lvl and select any options and enter your equipment strength and then calculate.....

sarasword123 @ 04 Nov 2020 06:41 am

Raian the Fallen @ 27 Oct 2020 08:08 pm

Suggestion: when using the MP3 Player, clicking Shuffle will make the song order go all ape****. Is there a way for shuffle to still work, but keep the order the songs are in?

daddyattitud @ 24 Oct 2020 09:42 am

I really like the spash screen pics. Choosing all five was good choice to me. It would get old seeing the same pic everytime.

strider3282 @ 24 Oct 2020 04:14 am

'wish that your calcs would have the wildy exp for brawlers too not just the non wild'

Right click on the brawlers glove option. ;)

Mak @ 23 Oct 2020 04:24 am

Cobalt @ 11 Oct 2020 12:36 am

PS: Thank you for finally adding the Farming data! Farmers Unite!

Cobalt @ 11 Oct 2020 12:34 am

I like using SwiftKit, for all the handy utilities - including GE prices. I also really like downloading and choosing between the different themes. However, with version (using Vista Home Premium, 1366x768) the themes aren't displaying correctly. There seems to be a new variable that needs to be added - the stats background is blocked in a different colour (under Display Name), regardless of what theme I choose (although the colour does change with each theme). Also, the background behind the SK icons for Play/Clock/Picture, Stats/Dbase/Web/Player are completely different colours (from the themes chosen and each other). Anyone else having this problem? I installed SwiftKit to the same laptop I'm using now a month or two ago, and it worked fine then. (Laptop died, reinstalled today). Great program!

Mak @ 11 Oct 2020 12:12 am

For those complaining about crashes or unrelated issues, there is nothing we can do by simply saying it's not working. You MUST make a post in the SwiftKit forum (RuneScape Community) with screenshots and detailed information about the issue.

teh thrower @ 10 Oct 2020 02:55 pm

Nice how you used ALL five. :]

Cobras_Kiss @ 09 Oct 2020 09:50 pm

Since I downloaded the new patch, I haven't been able to access SwiftKit at all. Is this happening to anyone else, or just me?

Raian the Fallen @ 09 Oct 2020 06:22 pm

Love the new update. I prefer the old splash screen image, though. And there's a small thing that's bugging me on the new ones. They say, "While Guthix sleeps we play on". The comma has been forgotten. xD "While Guthix sleeps, we play on." I think it looks better, but that's my opinion. I'm like, so anal about puncuation. So yeah. xD

Zaqttack @ 09 Oct 2020 06:06 pm

That Crtl + F1 feature is pretty cool. I'll keep that in mind.. ^_^

Adib (SK Staff) @ 09 Oct 2020 05:33 pm

To everyone posting about ctrl + F1: this is NOT, I repeat NOT a bug. This is actually the intention of the combination key. It is called a Boss Key. What it does is make SwiftKit disappear, from both your screen and even your taskbar. However, your SwiftKit did not close - it's still open. To bring it back, just press ctrl + shift + F1. It's basically to keep from getting in trouble with your boss (hence the name) or whoever you want to hide the fact that you play Runescape from.

I Am Ritsuja @ 09 Oct 2020 04:17 pm

I agree, The splash screen looks fantastic.
Also, Thank you for adding Ivy to the calculator.

Levi 1337 @ 09 Oct 2020 03:21 pm

nice. <33

Mdjd_2100 @ 09 Oct 2020 10:55 am
