Whats better- have a pc or vpn

Pros and cons for both. But on the long run I will go for the pc.

Why?

Because lets say you buy brand new equipment for 1000$.

You run 40 bots on this setup.

You quit botting after 12 months.

If you bough your pc piece by piece (and not as a whole) , you can sell the bad boys for at least 700$, but let's say you are in a hurry, and you sell them for 500$ (literary will sell the next day at this price).

500$ for 12 months of botting 40 accounts, that is $41 a month.

Do you have any idea how much a vps that can run 40 accounts cost? At least 100$. Even with the electric bill, you still make the most of your money from using pc.

On the flip side, if you have the pc at your home, rather than having a vps somewhere in this big world, you take the full responsability.

You have to start the whole system(s) (if u have multiple), shut them down, maintain them, deal with windows 10 problems, pay the f internet/ electric bill on time, otherwise you are out of business etc etc.

I  actually have a personal experience with home botting with your own setup, and overall I must say that I was the happiest Dragon on earth.

would pc still be better even though you need proxies-- lets say 1 proxy per 5 accounts

dude :D wait a second. On a vps you also need the proxyes,its the same thing.

Also, let me give you a quick-handy-inside-golden-pro-tip:

If you ever get your VPS IP flagged(yes, you have a STATIC IP on a vps, thats how you can access it), it's preety much game over on that vps. I mean you need proxies at all costs.

But if you have a pc at home, you probably have a dynamic ip adress. IF you don't call the f internet guys and demand a dynamic Ip.

Why is so awesome in having a dynamic ip?

Got caught by jagex?

Just pull the cables from the modem/router, count to 10, replug , and TADAAAA!! a free, new ip adress for you 

Crazy? xD

yeah but every vps has different ip. So if i want to bot 40 accounts ill buy 8 vps for like 10$ each. I can pay extra money monthly and be able to request ip changes depending on how much i pay. I think it cost $1 per ip change

Yes, this is also true.

Your best bet would be to avoid the mistake that I did: never go all in with your cash.

Start small with one or two vps and see if you can handle it.

Don't underestimate the immense time and energy you will need to run that ammount of bots on vps. 

GL!

thanks anyway... i think ill buy vps to slowly increase my profit and when i get enough money ill get pc as you said its worth in the long run

I prefer having physical access. I spent $477 on hardware minus an HDD (Had spare). I got two Intel Xeon E5-2670's, a standard ATX motherboard (Z9PA-D8) that supported dual CPUs, two Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVOs for CPU cooling, and 32GB RAM. A decent 550w PSU. I run 60+ Bots with no issues, and I'm only sitting at 45-55% cpu usage with that many running.  If you can find an old Dual 1366 socket w/ dual x5650's cpus this will work great as well.

I prefer to pay for dedicated server space personally.

It's really not that much more expensive. Sure, you're getting the mark-up for renting someone else's hardware, but at the same time, large data-centers are about as efficient as can be so it may not be much more expensive.

For me, in NY, electricity is particularly expensive. So, let's say the average botting PC will be drawing 300 watts of power, running 24/7. That's about $40 a month in electricity @ .19/KWH. Server hardware tends to be louder/draw more power too, so that number may be even higher.

Then, you have to house the physical PC somewhere, and then, in warmer months, the heat it generates can make a room uncomfortably warm at times. If you're air conditioning the room, sure you may never notice, but you're still paying more to cool that room.

To a lesser extent, it also does take up bandwidth. Runescape doesn't take much bandwidth, but if you live in a place where you pay by the GB (I personally don't, I know some countries/areas do) that would alsol be a factor.

Short version:

Yes, renting server space is more expensive, but it's really not that much more expensive when you consider electricity. There's also the noise/heat it generates to consider, and it takes up physical space in your house. Also, if jagex kills botting tomorrow, you simply don't renew your VPS subscription. If you invest in hardware, you're 'stuck with it'.

Better off buying pc hardware then renting, dont go out and buy some hardcore setup just buy the basics. eg. good i7 cpu(one of the K's with inbuilt grphx) some cheap board, ram, cheap power supply and a small hdd. it works out alot cheap in the long run and a cpu only pulls like 100w+ on full load

      Fluffee's Server Setup 3.0
      As some of you may know, I released an automated server setup script a little over a year ago. Albeit that script worked well, I was never fully satisfied with it, as I found it to be kind of messy to use. As a result, I rewrote the script, and restructured it, to add more, and stronger support for the different versions of Debian, the different versions of CentOS and the different versions of Ubuntu. However, with so many different Operating Systems being supported, and many different server providers having different setups, it's hard for me to test every possible scenario on my own. Which is why I've been privately handing this script out, and am now publicly looking for help.

      What does the script do?
      Similar to my previous setup script, this script changes the SSH port and creates a new user for connecting and using the server and disables root SSH connections; it installs the latest version of TightVNC Server (1.3.10) and sets that up with the desired port and password. It installs JDK 102 (32 or 64 bit depending on the OS), and installs TRiBot and OSBuddy and sets up the appropriate .jar file associations.
      What operating systems does it support?
      - CentOS (6.x and 7.x) (32 and 64 bit)
      - Debian (7.x and 8.x) (32 and 64 bit)
      - Ubuntu (12.x, 14.x and 16.x) (32 and 64 bit)
      Does it work?
      As far as I know, yes it does in fact work, and it works well if I might add. However, given that I can't test every possible setup, there is the potential for differences and issues
      How do I run the script?
      Login as root to a fresh VPS/dedi running one of the supported operating systems. From there run the commands listed below and follow the onscreen instructions. For those who would like to see the script's code, it can be found on my bitbucket here. The commands to run are as follows:
      wget --no-check-cert https://bitbucket.org/teamfluffee/fluffees-server-setup/raw/master/fluffees-server-setup.sh && chmod +x fluffees-server-setup.sh && bash fluffees-server-setup.sh -v Version History

      Hey guys, I'm facing some problems with my Debian 8 VPS, currently I'm not able to install Java 8, I was using this as reference https://tecadmin.net/install-java-8-on-debian/ but as it says "IMPORTANT: Java 8 is no longer available to download publically. You can use below link to install Java 11."  Java 8 can't be downloaded anymore, so I tried to use Java 11, but TRiBot doesn't work with it. 
      Anyone can have with this? 
      I'll give more info if required.

      Hey tribot, just was looking for a bit of help with the whole vps goldfarming method. 
      Does anyone have any experience with connecting your screen to the vps desktop? I followed a tribot guide, and did everything correctly and still could not connect with no one to help me. 
      I am expecting to be able to run 2-3 accounts per vps, is that possible or should i stick to 1-2?
      Honestly, just looking for any sort of help on starting a vps based gold farm, and im tired of being promoted shit vps websites

    • 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
      • 81 replies
    • 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!
