RuneLite Screenshot Folder

RuneLite is a third party client for the popular video game Old School RuneScape. As a third party client, it adds features to the game's UI that can be customized to the user's liking. These include stat counters, highlighting over significant elements (e.g. enemy hit boxes) and automatically taking screenshots when you achieve a new level or other accomplishment.

It is now the most-popular third party after overtaking RSBuddy (also known as OS Buddy), which was one of the first OSRS clients to hit the scene and previously the "standard". Unlike RSBuddy, RuneLite is open-source (meaning you can see all of its code online) and completely free-to-use.
