According to Jagex, they tested NXT on many computers with different graphic configurations, and they believe it will function well on most of operating systems. In recent beta testing, the development team had fixed most of the bugs. Although there are players who've encountered bugs in their graphics, Jagex responded as they will fix as soon as possible.
