  1. So I haven't been botting oldschool since gold prices crashed, but I'm a fairly avid merchant and still make money that way. I gave darkscape a go and managed to make 15m by merchanting/flipping and now that they have implimented a 10% tax on all transactions through the low-level GE I have no reason to play. Willing to sell the 15m I have made. Anyone interested?
  2. Can I run this script by itself in one instance without buying tribot vip? I heard premium scripts could be run without vip but Ive been gone a while and forget how it works.
  3. Thanks for that fix! I was lost as to why my bot literally dumped the whole stack into a couple items noted and unnoted then sat idle for a few hours.
  4. I live in an apartment and my utilities are all inclusive so I really don't have a variable cost associated to any electricity usuage. My entire electric bill if I was charged separately for it would be less than $44 a month.
  5. And I do the same from my pc, at no cost per month.
  6. The same people who are unlikely to know how to bot properly are the same people who are unlikely to know how a vps works. I maintain that a VPS is useless if you have a good medium-high end PC. I have seen a farm start-up with initial costs in the hundreds of USD buy a crappy "bot-ready vps" for $44/mo (more than 60% of their variable costs) who also had no idea what or where or how to bot. Its a revenue killer and whoever sold that vps to them should feel bad because they were clearly taken advantage of.

  9. It's hard to see because of the y-axis scale, but you will notice that the price of the item has small fluctuations at every tick mark (or "dot" in this case). These are not what we are looking at. These are over 3 hour intervals, which is far longer than what is relevant to the short-term trading the script tends to focus on. Let's instead make the intervals every 10 minutes. I can't make OSBuddy display a graph of this, but here is the data (again in the spoiler): So what does that tell us? Well, look at the prices. Notice how the prices jump all over the place, depending on what trades happen to go through at that time. The prices, in 10 minutes, seem to fluctuate back and forth between 10gp-100gp! That's a big gap to be going back and forth with. The point is that the script isn't waiting for the price to increase over the long-term, it's waiting over the short-term. Chances are that at some point in the next 10-60 minutes, the price of the item will go back up again (even if it is very slightly and very briefly) to a point where the script can sell the item for at least a small profit. However, as you pointed out, this doesn't always happen, although it usually does. What the AI doesn't do yet is determine if the price drop is a more long-term one. If it is, then it is the "1 in 50" I was talking about in my previous post. Accounting for that will prevent the script from holding onto an item for as much as 6 hours waiting for the price to go back up. However, as I said before, that requires a new part of the AI, which is essentially like constructing a new part of its brain. It will take some time. I think this is a fundamental misunderstanding in the definition of price. If a rune pick is 19k and somebody dumping their bank sells 1 for 1gp and it gets bought for 18k, I wouldn't consider that a depreciation in the price of rune picks. I wouldn't hoard my rune picks until somebody else bought one for 19k (although as you say that wouldn't take very long) I would ignore the event altogether. What I'm talking about is this In conclusion, I believe price is unpredictable and what you are talking about are sale to sale fluctuations that overall indicate a stable price. If the price is stable, the fluctuations net no change in a day and thus a negative profit margin on a purchase is easy to fix by waiting, assuming you didn't purchase one at the highest point. There are many stable items, but there are also many unstable items, and there are many stable items on the brink of instability and vice versa. Prediction is dangerous and the decision to hoard an item, from my understanding, is usually a long term decision (I've had bots hold on to items for hours) that could be fatal in the event prices are unstable for the particular item. Edit: Unstable items have juicy margins
  10. I'm not sure the odds of a price rebounding are 49/50, my guess is about 1/2. Usually when prices fall they don't rise again for weeks.
  11. This is just my humble opinion, but shouldn't hoarding never be a possiblitiy? If the price is changing, thats normal. Prices go up, prices go down and they follow a random walk. Waiting and holding the item has just as good of a chance of increasing losses as it does reducing, suppose the item only crashes further. If the script really feels it can't currently make profit, than the item should be dumped to minimize losses and added to a temp session blacklist and try other items on the list. What happens if all the items do this, and the script does nothing? Well then, thats up to the botter to choose better items!
  12. remove canin101 from your paypal emails. maybe having two is bad for the system.
