I got banned [RSPS]

Recommended Posts

Hello goodday everyone,

I know it's a bit odd I'm posting here but there aren't many forums where I can ask such questions. So I'm currently botting on a runescape private server for this I'm using 5 virtual machines, each machine with another IP. Now I got banned on two virtual machines. But when I change the IP-adress with a VPN it's still banned while the other machines are fine. I was thinking about a MAC-ban because each virtual machine has a seperate MAC-adres. But when I change the MAC-adress I still can't bypass the ban. So I was wondering if any of you guys know what type of ban they did on me. It looks like they track that particular virtual machine but how, what data do they have to track?

PS: I also can't make new accounts on the banned VM's

Thanks

 

EDIT: When I copy the virtual disk file from a "clean virtual machine" everything works fine. Still no clue what they are tracking.

Never heard about that one will look into it.

Just recreate new VM?

Idd that's an option that will work. But the server has around 100 active users (so it's pretty easy to spot bots), if they ban me each 12 hours I need to make a virtual machine everytime. And on the other hand I'm really interested how games can track you :)

They're probably storing a file on your virtual machine which they use as a flag.

@zippyyy is it consistently on the same VMs each time? Sometimes we try to make connections we think are there but really aren't. I have no way of gauging your objectivity. What percentage of the time does VM A get banned vs VM B? How big is your sample size?

No it isn't on the same VM's. I talked with the staff and they told me I got banned, they just didn't say which type of ban

Yep, either a file or some sort of registry flag. Best solution is just re-install the OS from an image on the VM

 

I really wonder which file that is. The options are limited, right? Also when I need to re-install everytime I also need to install pycharm, scripts, images, client etc which isn't really nice to do on a 2GB machine :D

If you want to ban someone based on hardware, you have two choices:

  • You either generate a hash code based on the user's computer's name, drive serial number, operating system, CPU etc., and you send that hash code to your server to later identify the machine.
  • You use some form of persistency, and leave some traces on that computer. And by traces I mean a file/registry which contains data relevant to the ban.

 

The first method can be bypassed by changing the physical hardware, or spoofing its data.

The second one can be bypassed by removing the file from the computer. This file might not be very easy to find, so doing a clean install of everything might be a better choice.

Not necessarily, an "image" usually refers to a hard drive image file or an operating system already installed and loaded with certain drivers/programs. In corporate environments this allows IT to install the operating system on employees computers already configured, rather than manually installing to each PC, manually installing Chrome on each PC, etc.

I tried to find some software to spoof hardware but didn't find anything good. Deleting the java game and it's cache and re-installing doesn't work either.

That's because the said file will almost always be located outside the installer's folder, to ensure persistency even if the user attempts to uninstall the game/program.

Your best bet would be to reinstall your VM.

    • 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!
