How has OsBot and TriBot been able to run for so many years?

They have the financial and technological means to completely wipe out bots, or at least drastically reduce their numbers (> 95%).

Improving the detection system, switching to a C++ client (which is much harder to hack), requiring additional anti-cheat software to run in the background or suing the life out of anyone that breaks their TOS are just some of the things that they could easily do (easy for a company that made $96 million in 2017).

Eliminating bots entirely might have unpredictable effects on their company's profits, and the game as a whole. And I don't think they are willing to gamble. So they limit themselves to publicity stunts and trimming the excess bots, just so that legitimate players don't get too upset.

Too add on to the above, sometimes I like to think big processing farms are lowering the global average prices of some super common items that make the game more enjoyable.

Take cannonballs for example.  Making them isn't a particularly fun, nor dynamic experience, so for the average person, not the most fun thing to be doing during your OSRS play time.

They are however, extremely useful for power leveling range skill.

A large number of bots farming cannonballs (I could be wrong) means lower average price per cannon ball so those who need them can speedily train their range at a lower cost.

This is assuming these players are making money doing other, more complex tasks.  Maybe things that are less flooded with bots (better profitability to hand-play) or even PvMing, and they can make a larger stack in less time.

    • TRiBot 12 Release Candidate

      The TRiBot team has been hard at work creating the last major version of TRiBot before the TRiBot X release. We've noticed many problems with TRiBot 11 with a lot of users preferring TRiBot 10 over 11. We've heard you, so we took TRiBot 10, added the new features introduced with 11, introduced some other new things, and created TRiBot 12. So without further adieu, here's TRiBot 12.

    • 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

    • 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
