How to Start Botting Old School Runescape with TRiBot

Originally posted at RSBotSpot

TRiBot is one of the most popular Old School Runescape bots. Released in 2013, it’s used by thousands of botters and has a wide selection of scripts.

TRiBot is under active development, and includes features like a break handler, proxy support, and antiban measurements.

This guide will explain how start botting Old School Runescape with TRiBot.

Create a TRiBot Account

Start by registering an account on the TRiBot forums.

Your forum login details will also be used for the TRiBot client.

Install JDK 8

In order to use TRiBot, you’ll first need to install Java Development Kit version 8 (JDK8).

You can download the official JDK8 installer here.

To download: click ‘Accept License Agreement’, click the download link for your operating system, and create an account.

Download JDK8 for Runescape

Download JDK8 for Runescape

Once downloaded, run it to install JDK8.

Download & Open TRiBot

You can download the official TRiBot client here.

Double click the TRiBot_Loader.jar file to run it.

If you experience issues, like TRiBot opening with Winrar, download and run JarFixer (Windows) and try again.

If it isn’t already, select JDK 1.8 in the ‘Java Version’ dropdown box.

Enter your login details, and click login.


You’ve installed JDK8 and got TRiBot running!

If you still need help, ask on the TRiBot forums or our Runescape botting discord.

Now it’s time to get familiar with the TRiBot repository.

TRiBot Repository Basics

The TRiBot repository is where you manage your scripts and subscriptions. It works using a credit system.

TRiBot credits cost $1 per credit, and are used to buy VIP subscriptions and scripts. You can purchase TRiBot credits with a verified PayPal account or credit card.

You can also purchase credits with Runescape gold or cryptocurrency. YoHoGold, our sister site, is a great place to buy TRiBot credits.

TRiBot Pricing

TRiBot has various subscription levels which can be seen below:

Free VIP Trial VIP VIP-Extended
$0 $1 per 2 Days $6.50 per Month $8 per Month
Access to the client Access to the client Access to the client Access to the client
Able to run one premium script at a time Able to run unlimited free, vip, and premium scripts Able to run unlimited free, vip, and premium scripts Able to run unlimited free, vip, and premium scripts
      Ability to use proxies while botting
      Access to Looking Glass feature

They best way to start would be with either VIP Trial or regular VIP. This will give you unlimited access to all VIP scripts.

There are also premium scripts which can be purchased individually.

Buy VIP Subscription

Once you have credits, you can purchase TRiBot VIP.

With VIP, you can run unlimited instances of all VIP scripts!

Select a TRiBot Script

Open the TRiBot Repository filter by category, and pick ‘Free’ (meaning free for VIP users) as price.

Here’s my search for a woodcutting script:

Download JDK8 for Runescape

TRiBot Woodcutting Script Search

Click the info button to see more.

When selecting a script to use, there are a few things you can do to ensure its quality:

  • Check last update date: An old date doesn’t always mean a script is broken. But if it hasn’t been updated in over a year, it’s typically outdated.
  • Read the 1st thread post: From the script info page, click View Thread. Here you can read details about the script’s features and usage.
  • Read last few thread pages: Read posts to get a good idea of how users feel about the script, how active the developer is, and if there are any outstanding issues.

If all of these points check out, you’ve found a solid script!

Click Activate to add it to your TRiBot script collection.

Launch Runescape

Open TRiBot, and click the New Client button to launch runescape.

Log into the Runescape account you want to bot.

Run A Script

Once Runescape has loaded, click the Start Script button at the top right.

Select your script, and click start.


Loading Runescape & Starting a Script

Fill out the info in the GUI, and you’re good to go.

 You Did it!

Congratulations, you got your first bot running!

This is just the beginning. TRiBot has lots of scripts and other features to make your botting experience smoother.

Okay, my next suggestion would be to uninstall tribot completely and reinstall. You can uninstall tribot by deleting the jarfile, and then deleting the .tribot folder in you AppData roaming folder. Also, have you ever run the legit OSRS client on your computer? If so, you may need to clear your game cache. Instructions for that can be found at this link. One last thing, when you respond to someone on this site, they won't be notified unless you hit the "Quote" button under their comment, and then click "Quote Comment" in the bottom right.

I have installed the JDK and updated my java to the latest version and tribot won't open. I re-installed them and still won't open. I am able to open DreamBot/RSbot without any issues. I just cannot get tribot to open. How come?

Run the tribot jar via command line, paste the error message.

  • 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!
