There was a lot of speculation concerning what the bug was, and what was causing it. In the interest of transparency we want to take a while to explain the matter.

Among the group was implementing the visit our site code to the pickpocketing update. On death, the aim was to convert them to actual coins, partly to ensure a PKer could get the value if applicable.

After converting a stack of items into a pile of OSRS gold, it is appropriate to check that the calculation doesn't overflow the maximum integer limit of the game's speech (2.1 billion). Unfortunatelythe logic used for this calculation was incorrect, and when implemented on heaps of other items (not the pouch itself) the outcome was to convert the pile into 2.1b coins.

Unfortunately, even though the pouches were discovered to be acting correctly during testing, the defect affecting other items wasn't seen since it was not expected to have changed.

Old School RuneScape hasn't experienced a rollback of any sorts before, and to set about restoring the game to Cheap Rs gold an earlier state (prior to this insect ) was an immense undertaking. The damaging effects of this bug led to a consensus fast being reached, together with the team resolved to take on a rollback, if such a thing were possible. Following investigation found that it might be possible, although not readily done.
