*As no one knows how Jagex bans accounts, all opinion's are my own. **In response to comments, I've revised the post. This is meant to encourage/help people get into botting, as well as some tips to people who are not succeeding. I spent a lot of time making this because I think this information is useful. First, not only is it possible to make a living botting, but I make more now than at my "real" job! I do this by diversifying how I make my money and picking up as many streams of income as I can. I'll go into what a normal day looks like, but firstly you should learn the game. Runescape botting by far is where most of my money come in, and without some knowledge of the game you are going to struggle, so if your new looking to make an easy buck, it’s possible, but you’re going to need to do quite a bit of research. I'd play the game for at least a month before attempting to learn. There’s quite a few ways to bot, and you will have to figure out for yourself what works for you. For me, I like to run high requirement/high money bots, though riskier the rewards are also great. I have successfully botted the same accounts for 6+ months, each making over 1m/h. In these types of accounts, the most costly thing associated with it are the accounts getting banned. There are quite a few ways I get around this, and the more unique your personal bot farm is the less likely you are to be banned generally. Some things I follow religiously though are: -Not botting during Jagex hours, if you have botted enough I’m sure your aware 90% of bans happen during this time. Whether being logged in effects it we can’t be certain, but from my personal experience I would not risk it. -Looking Glass, Again, a bit of a controversial one. When botting high skill requirement activity's I like to give my accounts the best chance, I believe looking glass does help, but for suicide botting your CPU could be better used and i would not recommend Looking Glass for those types of Accounts. -Breaks, so far these should not be too crazy new to people, however I see questions all the time on here asking about breaks. You want your accounts to look human if they’re going to last, and humans got to take breaks! -Sleep! A lot of people want to bot on their main, and will do so during the time they would normally sleep. I strongly advise against this. We have suspensions that Jagex tracks your normal hour play time, and there are flags to be raised when you suddenly spend 8 hours alching from midnight to 8am. In fact, I always let my accounts get at least a 8-9 hour "sleep" to look more human. -Paid scripts, you got to spend money to make money! Not only will paid scripts almost always have better, more customization features. The developers usually care and update these scripts a lot more, and, the less users on a script, the better for ban rate. A lot of users don’t want to shell out a few dollars for their accounts. Again, strongly unadvised to use free scripts! -Proxys. Same goes for proxies as paid scripts, generally the more expensive the less likely it will have been botted on in the past. Never use free proxies, you can have accounts banned before you ever bot for using a suspicious proxy! Personally i use residential proxies, and I believe that is why my ban rate seems so low compared to other users. Data center proxies are detectable whereas residential looks like just another home IP. I get mine from Yourprivateproxy as there one of the few sites that offer static, Socks5 residential proxies. You should also be aware of how many accounts you have on a certain proxy, i like to have 2 botting accounts on 1 proxy, with mules/gold traders on cheaper data center proxies. -Check the threads! Before getting into a new activity to bot, check the thread/forum to see what people are complaining about, but also keep in mind that people are more likely to go out of their way to complain vs complement. -Choose what you know! If your highest hunter level you’ve ever gotten in the game is 10, don’t bot hunter! Bot things that your familiar with, things that you've seen/identified people botting and do it in a way that isn’t as obvious as those people. If you jump into a skill you don’t know, you’re just going to be one of those obvious bots. -Don’t overdo it. Don’t quit your job tomorrow to start 100 accounts (yes people do this) without any experience expecting to make bank. Give it time and fell it out to see if this is something you want to learn, you should learn more and more every day from botting. How much money can you make off this? I Spend about an hour a day on my bots, ATM I make around $70 a day/ $2100 a month from the accounts I have and am working towards making more! One of the first things I bought after starting this was my car (image attached). I was a server before this, and as a guy finishing up college the freedom I have now is unreal. *Other ways I make money Honestly these are not for everyone, they can be tedious/annoying. This is not meant to be an add but as an actual discussion on the things I personally do. I realize not everyone will have an interest in these, so please just ignore this part if you fit into that category. Besides botting, in my other free time i try to make money online in a few different ways, lots of websites can be used together to make an extra $ -Swagbucks, This one is my favorite because once you figure it out you can make quite a bit. Especially if you sign up for free trials (I have enough free razors to last me forever) -Perk, Another site though not as good as swagbucks. If you have a phone, tablet or even multiple you can make money on them just playing videos forever, i just set up the ipad and leave. People used to make "perk farms" with tons of phones and make $100's of dollars a day, but the golden age of perk has passed sadly. -Ebates, For saving money this is the best one I know. When buying my new PC they actually gave me 20% back so i got around $200 I would have never seen anyway. I'm sure most people know about it but I thought id include it anyway -Smart Screen Panel- This one will pay you $1 a week per device you download it to up to 3 devices. Its hard to get in but if you catch it when its open you can download and forget about it, I usually forget I have this until Christmas hits then its actually a nice sack of change - Paribus, It will go though your amazon purchases from the last 30 days, and if prices drop give you the difference. I don't buy a lot of stuff off amazon, but you may find it useful. -Instagc, Another site for making money, I've heard great things about this site but i personally do not use it. -Other sites to try, Reddit/beermoney probably has the most of these types of sites if you interested, not something everyone is into but if you got the time check it out! If anyone has any other suggesting/other ways they make money there willing to share, let me know! I'm always trying to find new sites to try and make a buck ***Some of the links above are affiliated/refer links. You do not in anyway have to use these, fell free to google the different sites yourself if interested. I will also attempt to show some verification of my claims.
Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to Botting: Part Three - All About Servers Welcome once again to Fluffee's Ultimate Guide to botting series. If you haven't already read part one or part two, please do so here (https://tribot.org/forums/topic/62462-tutorial-fluffees-ultimate-guide-to-botting-part-one-account-creation-and-management/) or here (https://tribot.org/forums/topic/62766-tutorial-fluffees-ultimate-guide-to-botting-part-two-all-about-proxies/) --What are servers?-- In a general sense, a server is much like your own home computer, except they are setup for doing different things. In some cases, servers are used to run web sites, office/school networks or running an email service. And as a result of this, companies have began to rent servers out to people, allowing those people to use the companies servers to run websites, maintain an email service, etc. without actually owning a server themselves. Years ago, RuneScape botters realized that these very same servers would allow them to run their bots around the clock without leaving their home PC on all the time. As a result, you now see many people buying Dedicated Severs and/or Virtual Private Servers to run their RuneScape bots. --What are Virtual Private Servers?-- A Virtual Private Server, or VPS as they are commonly referred to, are virtual servers which you pay a monthly fee to have access to. These Virtual Servers allow you to run your bots 24/7 without leaving your computer on, as the bots will run in the Virtual Server and not your home computer. The reason Virtual Private Servers are so common in the botting community is that they allow users to run their bots while their computer is turned off, and they're relatively inexpensive (around $10 per month, depending on the plan). One of the major drawbacks to a VPS, is that the server you're paying for access to is not a real server, but rather a virtual one created on a real server. The issue with that comes from companies overselling their Virtual Private Servers, essentially they sell more Virtual Private Servers on a real server then what the real server can actually handle, which results in poor performance for running bots. There is no real way to avoid this when purchasing a Virtual Private Server except by purchasing a server from a trusted provider hoping that they won't oversell. --What are Dedicated Servers?-- Dedicated Servers are very similar to Virtual Private Servers, they come with similar operating systems, you access them the same way, and they allow you to do the same things. However, a Dedicated Server outclasses a Virtual Private Server in one key aspect. A dedicated server is a server, which again you pay a fee to access, but this time you're paying for access to a physical, real server that the company owns and maintains. As a result of this Dedicated Servers are much more expensive, but you pay for the reassurance that you get access to what you advertised, with no overselling what so ever. If you're a serious goldfarmer a Dedicated Server may be for you, and some people swear by them, but if you're new and just looking to get your feet wet a VPS is more then enough for what you'll be doing! --Why should you use a server of some kind?-- As I've stated above, the most common reason for anyone to use a server over just running bots on your home PC is the ability to go to bed, turn off your computer and have your bots still running in the background. Another great thing, which I personally love about using a Server is the ability to easily measure the costs of your gold farm versus the profits. Using your home PC to run bots is not free as you do have to pay for power consumption, and I hate not being able to accurately measure that cost. Although that's just me, I'm sure someone will probably feel the same! --How do I setup my server for use with TRiBot?-- I could post an entire guide on how to do this, and actually I have For anyone who's new to servers, and wants a quick and easy way to set them up, check out my guide below, which was updated March 6th, 2016; so yes it's extremely up to date! --How do I effectively manage multiple servers?-- There's two methods I will propose, and it's up to you how you would like to use them! The first method, as many can expect is a spreadsheet (I love spreadsheets). This spreadsheet, like my others is self explanatory, and has fields for the Server IP, VNC and SSH ports, root password, vnc password and user account password and a description of what runs on the server. However, the one downfall to this is that you can't click on an IP and connect to your server, but that's where RealVNC comes in. To download RealVNC head over to this link https://www.realvnc.com/download/vnc/ and download the full VNC package. During the Install you can uncheck the box for the VNC Server, as you won't need any of that. Once RealVNC is installed, head to the RealVNC install folder, and open up the VNC Address Book. From there open up the New Entry Dialogue Enter in your server IP and Port into the VNC Server field, uncheck the box for Username, and check the box for Password, then enter in your VNC password. Then press OK. You should then see this dialogue box, where you are prompted to enter a Master Password to protect your address book, so go ahead and do that as well! Once that's done, you'll see something like this. From there, right click on your newly added VNC Server and you can rename it to make it more recognizable if you'd like And you're done! You now have your first Server added to the Address Book, which makes life incredibly easy as you can just double click to connect! Congrats --How to manage files on your VPS?-- Note: This section of the guide assumes you are not using SSH keys to connect to your server. There's a couple of ugly, quick and dirty methods to transfer files, such as uploading to Dropbox, or some equivalent and transferring files that way. However, there's a much better method that'll I'll be showcasing today. To begin with download WinSCP from here: https://winscp.net/eng/download.php Once WinSCP is installed, or downloaded, go ahead and run it. You should be brought to a screen similar to this To setup WinSCP to connect to your server, go to the right hand side and change the protocol to SCP (this is a protocol built off of SSH, which means you won't need to install anything extra on your server. After that, type in your server IP address into the field labelled "Host name", and then enter the Port you use to connect via SSH into the "Port number" field. Finally, enter in your SSH username and password; then hit Login or Save (If you wish to). Assuming you entered everything correctly, you should connect to your server and be able to Upload and Download files through the WinSCP interface. --How to Sync your .tribot Folder across multiple locations?-- Due to the length of this particular part of the tutorial, I've decided to move it to it's own topic which you can find here Shoutout to user @HackRain for inspiring me to figure this out. And that about brings this segment of the guide to the end, to overview, we've covered what a server is, the different types of servers you can use, should you use a server, and then how to effectively use and manage those servers. I hope you've enjoyed, and learned something from this lengthy guide, be sure to keep on the lookout for Part 4
