Gaming Laptop for Tribot?

Question

Apologies if this is in the wrong category, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a reasonably priced gaming laptop that could run a few bots at once (probably no more than 5 at the maximum). I don't want to spend too much on it either -- decent performance is all I am after. Thanks!

Most modern laptops would be able to easily run a few clients with a core i3 CPU (or equivalent) or better.

Any laptop designed for gaming would be more than capable of getting the job done.

@Encoded@Einstein Thank you both for your responses! I know that OSRS is CPU heavy, and if I wasn't a mobile individual I'd probably just go for a cheap desktop setup, but do you think I could run that many bots with Tribot on a mid-range gaming laptop?

If mid-range means a modern generation i3 or higher, sure. RS has been created to run on computers built in the year 2000, so it's a very easy task for modern computers. 

Another thing to consider if you're traveling a lot, is running your bots on a rented server. It only costs a few dollars a month and you won't need to carry around or maintain any hardware.

Is that similar to virtual machines? Don't those lag a lot?

You're probably referring to a Virtual Private Server. That would be a chunk of the server rather than the whole machine itself. Renting a VPS is much cheaper than renting the full computer, and it's everything you'll need to run a few bots. If you get a sufficiently powerful one, you shouldn't experience any issues.

I would suggest at least trying this ~$20 alternative before committing to buying any hardware for the sole purpose of running a few bots.

And this would need to be paired with a few proxies right? Thank you for the advice! All I have to do now is figure out where to get these things haha!

Sure, you could run your bots through proxies on the VPS.

There are a multitude of providers for VPSs, dedicated servers, and proxies. You have plenty of options to choose from. :)

If you're tight on cash like I was, I resorted to MDG they financed me my HP Omen Gaming Laptop. Had to pay 56$ bi-weekly it was about 1700$ my payments are up next week thankfully. If you're from Canada MDG might be a good option to look at , i'm not sure on what other sites would hold for financing elsewhere though

Thanks! I am trying out a VPS, but I am struggling to get it up and running. Sadly, no one has been active today to assist haha

  • 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!
