TRiBot Update Status

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

The purpose of this thread is to provide a central hub to convey information about the updates that are currently ongoing to fix Looking Glass in the TRiBot client, as it is currently not functioning. I'll be updating this post as I receive new information from the development team, and we'll also be answering any questions you may have!

Here's the current situation of Looking Glass:

  • OSBuddy support was put on hold a few months ago in favour of RuneLite support. As RuneLite was much more popular, and presumably ran lighter than OSBuddy
  • Java 7 support was removed from the client, also a few months ago. This allows for advanced Java 8 features to be used, but in the process removed Looking Glass support for the official OSRS client.
  • Two weeks ago, RuneLite pushed an update to disallow clients to hook to it. This was solved with Todd's RuneLite launcher
  • Last week, RuneLite pushed an update to (as far as I know) further prevent forks of the client from working. These forked clients were (to my understanding) offering features that broke Jagex's game rules, or did things RuneLite wasn't comfortable with. Such as automatic gear or prayer switching, etc.
    • Inadvertently this update broke our ability to hook to RuneLite as well
  • The developers of TRiBot are at a crossroads as to how to proceed. Now that it is clear that third party clients like RuneLite or OSBuddy can break our ability to hook to them, the most stable option long term looks to be to hook to the official RuneScape client. However, this means re-adding Java 7 support to some degree, which will take some time
  • Currently, the developers are pursuing the solution of hooking to the official client, and are working on re-adding the necessary Java 7 support to allow us to hook to the official client again.

As of May 30th, 2019 this is where development stands, and it is the current status of Looking Glass in TRiBot. In the meantime a workaround for this issue has been discovered by some industrious users. The workaround involves downloading a browser with Java support (such as PaleMoon or WaterFox) and running OSRS in http mode, and not https mode. To do this, ensure the URL of your OSRS game starts with http and not https (if it starts with https, replace it with http). Then launch TRiBot and select Looking Glass to hook TRiBot to the browser. You can see further instructions, and learn more about this find on this thread here:


Please feel free to post any questions or concerns you have on this thread, and please monitor this thread for updates as we work on getting Looking Glass back up and running! ?

Hi everyone.
We are attempting a number of approaches.
#1 We are refactoring the LG agent in java 7 so that we can support the official client.
#2 We are attempting to diagnose the current issue with OSBuddy and determine if it's even feasible.
#3.We are looking into other clients like Runestar.

As soon as we make a breakthrough we are going to push a release. Sorry for the downtime. We have no ETA at this time. Please continue to use the work-around in the banner.

    • 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

      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
