How to Clear Your Cache

Lore > guides > clearcache

Clearing your browser's cache gives you the latest version of the game

When you play AQWorlds, or any Artix Entertainment game, the game window you see is called the "client." The client shows you the updated files (that make up each release) we put out every week. Those files are stored in your browser's "cache." 

 

Browsers store things in caches. We store them in boxes. 

 

When we release BIG new features or fix important bugs, we want you to get the latest version of the game client, which means your browser's cache needs to be emptied of all its current files. Emptying your cache is called "clearing your cache." That lets it get all the new, most up-to-date files so your game works right.

Below is a list of the most popular browsers and how to clear the cache on each of them.  This guide provides links to the homepages of the various browsers.
