A Note on the "Detectable Client" Issue

Recommended Posts

I have absolutely no idea if the client is detectable or not. One thing I do know is that there are TONS of people (myself included) who use TRiBot daily and do not get banned instantly. That doesn't prove anything though, as I explain at the bottom of the post. Before complaining about TRiBot, read the following speculation:

  1. Your IP might be flagged. Unlikely, I know, but possible.
  2. You might THINK that what you were doing before you started botting is something a legitimate player would do, but Jagex might think differently. It is possible that they have code that attempts to detect if someone is trying to set up a bot, before they even bot.
  3. Your payment method might be flagged (unlikely and in many cases illegal, but still possible).
  4. They might have small little things to detect if you're botting. For example, maybe loading the client with a specific world is detectable.
  5. They might have REALLY small little things to detect if you're using TRiBot in particular. You have to move your mouse to the top of the screen to press "Start Script", right? Hmm.
  6. There might be an issue with the login bot. Maybe they detect the speed that the login bot types, or that every character is typed exactly evenly.
  7. Did you supply your bot with anything from another account? That might be a flag for Jagex.
  8. What's your email? What's your password? What's your username? Could that make a difference?
  9. Did you pay on a different IP than you're botting on? That might make a difference.
  10. Did you do tutorial island on Orion or a browser, and then switch to TRiBot to start botting? It is a known fact that Jagex can detect a third party client vs a browser, and it's possible that because Orion is supported, they have code to check if you are using Orion. You might think that's a good idea to do tutorial island in the browser or using Orion, but maybe instead it just waves a flag telling Jagex "Hey! Ban me!". Who knows?
  11. TRiLeZ would have to confirm this, but TRiBot uses proxies by loading a socks proxy through the JVM. If Runescape can access the JVM (which I don't know if it can), Jagex could detect if you are using a proxy (getting the proxy from a JVM will return null if no proxy is being used).

One last thing: Jagex knows how to detect patterns, and they know how effective it is. They know that we will be trying to do the same. That is why their delayed bans are so powerful. Who knows? Maybe every single one of our accounts is flagged when we use TRiBot. However, they decide very carefully which accounts to ban as to try to throw us off course.


There are LOTS of things to consider here. In order to beat Jagex, we are going to have to think like Jagex. What good would adding small amounts of code to detect the client be in the long run? It wouldn't be good at all, because eventually the botting clients would fix the problem, and the bots would be back. Try to be more open minded, and think about small things that lots of botters do that real players don't.

I think you should include how STUPIDLY SIMPLE it is to track walking patterns. When they uploaded the botting heat map, it was hilarious to see that the heat dots literally followed the path for a nature crafter on tribot to the exact tile. In WoW, I'm pretty sure they use paths to detect bots, so it wouldn't be stupid to say that jagex is doing the same.

  • Our picks

    • Gradle is a build tool used to accelerate developer productivity.

      We recently setup a Maven repository (TRiBot Central) to make it easier for scripters to create scripts. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-central/-/packages

      Furthermore, we've released a simple Gradle project to make it easy to run TRiBot and develop scripts for it. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-gradle-launcher

      The goals of TRiBot Central are to:

      Deliver updates to TRiBot faster

      Better organize TRiBot's dependencies (AKA dependancies)

      Make it easier to develop scripts for TRiBot

      Make it easier to use and run TRiBot

      Note: TRiBot won't be able to run scripts from within this project until TRiBot's next release.

    • Hi everyone,

      I'd like to thank everyone for their patience in this transition period. Since last week, we've worked out the remaining bugs with this integration.

      Some users have still been having issues with connecting their forums account to their Auth0 account. To resolve this, we've imported all forums accounts into Auth0.

      Unfortunately, the accounts which were imported today were using an unsupported password hashing algorithm. Hence, random passwords were set during the import.

      What does this mean for me?

      If you've previously linked your forums account to your Auth0 account, you don't have to do anything. Nothing changes for you.

      If you haven't logged in via our new login yet,

      Try logging in with your forums email address and the last password you used

      If you are unable to login, please use the "Forgot password" tool on the login page:
      Follow the instructions to reset your password

    • Hello everyone,

      Last week we tried to roll out Auth0 Login, but we lost that battle. Now it's time to win the war!

      Important changes

      When logging into the client, you'll now have to enter your Auth0 account credentials instead of your forums credentials

      Note: 2FA is still handled through your forums account (for the time being)

      Changes for existing users

      You'll have to link your Auth0 account to your forums account here: https://tribot.org/forums/settings/login/?service=11

      Auth0 accounts have been created for most existing users. Please use your forums email address and password to login.

      Important notes

      Make sure to verify your email address upon creating a new Auth0 account

      When we mention your Auth0 account, we mean your account used for auth.tribot.org as displayed below

    • To better support the upcoming changes (TRiBot X, new repository), we're switching our login handler to Auth0. Instead of logging in with the standard form, you'll now be required to login through our Auth0 application.

      All existing accounts which have been used within approximately the past year have been imported into Auth0 using the same email and password combination which has been stored on the forums.

      What does this mean for users?

      Your account credentials are now even more securely stored

      You'll be able to login via Facebook, Google, and others in the future

      Is there anything users have to do differently now?

      Existing users: You'll have to login with the standard login, open your Account Settings, then link your Auth0 account

      New users: You'll be redirected to our Auth0 app (auth.tribot.org) where you'll be able to create an account

      Why was this change made?

      The new apps we are creating (such as the new repository) aren't able to use the forums to handle user logins

      To centralize all user accounts in one area

      To ensure that the client login doesn't go down when the forums are having problems

      To speed up our development

      Other considerations

      There's no documentation or official support for using Invision Community combined with Auth0, so there are still a few kinks we're working out

      We're in the works of creating an account management panel specifically for Auth0 accounts (ETA August)

      It's not possible to change email addresses for the time being (this will be resolved this August)

      Changing passwords is a weird process for the time being. To change your password, you'll have to use the "Don't remember your password" tool on the Auth0 login page

    • Over the past month, we've been working hard on TRiBot's new repository - a much needed update. This change has been deemed necessary for TRiBot X, and will allow us to really speed up development of all aspects of TRiBot.

      Today we are going to share what we've been working on!

      Now you must be wondering what kind of features the new repository will have.... well, you'll have to be patient for a little while longer. We're still figuring out various technical aspects so we can't provide answers to all possible questions. We're also focusing on development rather than writing about it so that everyone can get access to our latest developments at lightning speed. I will however answer a few users' questions.

      We're planning on a release of this early to mid August, giving users some goodies before TRiBot X's release.

      Thank you all for being patient. I hope everyone is excited as much as I am!
