  1. I can clarify this situation for everyone. As some people know, I have been suffering from several severe mental health issues over the last 2-3 years. I won't go into it because the specifics aren't really relevant, but what is relevant is the impact those mental health issues have had on my ability to handle my position as a Premium Scripter on TRiBot. As @Netami pointed out, this isn't the first time this has happened. He knows better than most, as he used to be on my support team, and used to use Tau GE. Yes, the script does, in fact, work exceptionally well for most. From an administrative perspective, this is not acceptable. As TRiLeZ recently pointed out to me in a discussion, TRiBot needs to keep customer satisfaction as high as possible, just like any business. If a script is broken for 5% of users, 5% of users will be dissatisfied. That is 5% dissatisfaction before the script is even started, which when you think about it, makes perfect sense to avoid. I have had a long time to ensure the script works for all users, yet for reasons I explained above, I failed to deliver. I openly and regrettably admit this. The last thing I am going to address is the future. Most of the aforementioned problems have been taken care of, and I had planned on getting back into the thick of things starting at the beginning of the summer. Unfortunately, this lined up exactly with when the script was disabled and my demotion from Premium Scripter. Nevertheless, I am still resuming my activity, both on the forums and scripting. The reason I bring this up is to clarify that I am NOT becoming active again to get my rank back or anything like that; I have to wait 6 months before reapplying anyway. I know I am going to be accused of this, and I wanted to out of the gate clarify that this is not the case. If anyone has any additional questions for me, please feel free to shoot me a PM, and I'll be happy to reply. @NinjadGuy
  2. You can run 32bit programs (including Java) on a 64bit operating system.
  3. It looks like you downloaded the jdk as a zip folder. You can do this, but it is much easier to download the .exe. Use this link. Make sure you download the .exe:
  4. Seems like you already have this in mind, but I will say it anyway: I strongly recommend doing what my GE bot did, and never offer undercutting as an option. I had that in my script for no less than a week, and the damage to the RS economy just from that was visible, especially on commonly traded items. That aside, the script looks great! Good work!
  5. That looks like the folder that is created when you install Java. I'm not sure why it isn't in one of your Program Files directories, as it should have been put there automatically.
  6. Define "monkfish"? Is this the amount of monkfish TRiLeZ has stolen? Because if so, that number will be in the trillions.
  7. So others (hopefully) don't, hence the "PSA" in the title.
  8. I agree entirely with @Final Calibur. Your bug "report" did little more than accuse the scripter of incompetence. You left out key pieces of information. Also, the way in which you utilized language would have led me to believe that your report was not worth seriously looking into, as you didn't even take the time to proof your comment, which was less than a paragraph in length. If you are behaving in this manner because it is how your customers act towards you, perhaps you should shift your mindset to "I will be better than that" rather than "I have to deal with this, so I have the right to stoop to their level". An adjustment worth considering, in my opinion. PS: Regardless of circumstance, you will seldom get the response you are looking for if you act in an accusatory manner. In any business environment (yes, this is technically a business), you should always assume that you are at fault when reporting an issue, even if you know for certain that you are not. It is human nature to become defensive when accused, especially when there is pride involved, which there usually is. Ask yourself, "What is more important to me; reaching a resolution to the problem, or belittling someone and/or protecting my ego?" If your answer is the latter, then I strongly suggest that you ask yourself why that is. TL;DR: Always ask yourself "Why am I doing this?". As Final Calibur adequately put, consider some introspection.
  9. There's a link to it in my signature. When I get the chance I'll also put a clearly visible one in the Tau GE OP as well. Thank you. And yes, you are correct; I have been going through what I can only describe as mental hell over the last year or so. It's been very hard, and very unpredictable. In other news, something came up and I am not sure I will be able to fix the bug today. I'll do my best to find the time, but it'll probably be tomorrow. But again, I promise I'll do what I can to fix the bug. FYI, my PSU died 5 months ago and decided to take the rest of my computer down with it, so there is some technical stuff I need to do before I can even access the source code. That's why I, unfortunately, can't just change a number and be done. But I'll do whatever I can.
  10. So everyone here is aware, my last login date is not an accurate reflection of my dedication to my script. Over a year ago, I hired a team to help me provide support for my users. My life, in short, completely fell apart. I've been rebuilding myself ever since, and it has taken more out of me — in terms of both time and energy — than I could have possibly imagined. My lead support agent (and now what I consider to be a close friend), @Butta, agreed to contact me personally should any urgent issue arise. This is why I have logged in to address these issues now. In any case, as multiple people have said, the cause of my inactivity is irrelevant. If you pay for a service, you have the right to use that service, and I understand that. I will not go into any more detail than I already have (I believe Butta linked a post in which I explain my situation above), but know that there is a reason why I have said time and time again that I will not give ETAs on updates. I simply have not (note the past tense) known when I would be recovered. Ironically enough given the timing of the script breaking and multiple disputes/complaints arising at the same time, I finished my formal recovery on Friday (yesterday), and it was — as far as I can tell so far — 100% effective. I had intended on resting this weekend and then returning come Monday morning, but given the circumstances, after I fix this bug, I am going to spend the rest of the day re-familiarizing myself with the state of TRiBot, the state of Tau GE, and then determining what my next course of action should be. Regardless, I can say definitively that I will be at least moderately active starting this upcoming Monday, on both the forums and on Discord, which is always a more effective way to get ahold of me, by the way. All of that aside, to address this issue directly: @Butta has informed me of the issue, I am here, and unless something goes catastrophically wrong (probably not), the issue will be fixed within the next 24 hours.
  11. Announcement I've been working on fixing the idle bug for the last 4-5 hours or so. It doesn't happen very often (obviously often enough to be a problem, though), so it's proving to be difficult to find the root of the problem. Chances are I will have to get some sleep and then get back at it tomorrow. Rest assured that the issue is being addressed as my number one priority. Important: Anyone who has screenshots, stack traces, GIFs, or any other pieces of information that could potentially prove useful in identifying the cause of the bug, please post them in my Discord Bug Reports Channel.
  12. TRiBot definitely isn't outdated, don't worry! Some scripts have been updated more recently than others, but just because a script is old doesn't mean the script doesn't work well and isn't kept up to date.
  13. This won't be an issue, don't worry. Announcement I ask all current and prospect Tau script users to please join the Tau Discord Server to get top quality, fast support, help from other Tau GE users, and just hang out and talk. If you want to get in contact with me personally (I would highly recommend going through one of my support agents — such as @Butta, for example — before contacting me due to my incredibly busy schedule, but if you absolutely must get in contact with me, Discord is almost always going to be your best bet. First, try mentioning me in a message via the Tau Discord Server. Oftentimes you won't even need to wait for me, because one of my support agents or another Tau GE user will be able to help you out. Sometimes my notifications can get drowned out, so if after 48 weekday hours you have not yet received a reply, feel free to shoot me a Discord PM. Important: Please do not send me a PM on Discord unless you have tried all of the above-mentioned suggestions. At this time, I receive a small enough quantity of PMs to be able to answer all of them without too much trouble, but if PMs containing questions that can be easily answered elsewhere start popping up, it will negate what is currently the only way for users who have important questions/comments to contact me directly and receive a prompt response. So please be courteous of that, thank you.
  14. Done. To any other Tau GE users that happen to see this, know that the script does work properly in most situations, although I am still working on fixing this bug. I'm aiming to get it done by the end of the day tomorrow, but it's very possible that it will take longer than that.
  15. Sorry about the delay. I'll be working on posting a fix over the next couple of days. If you would like a refund in the meantime, let me know, and I'll provide one as an apology for the delayed reply.
  16. Several years ago, I adopted a simple yet fundamental principle I now write all new code by: "If there are multiple ways to do something, implement all of them, and let the user choose which one to use." When it makes sense to do so, I will always implement all viable methods of completing a task (such as price-checking an item, for example). That being said, I must emphasize "When it makes sense to do so"; there are only so many hours in a day, after all. As such, to me, a project is never"complete". No matter what the project is — even an incredibly polished, well-designed, bug-free, and feature-packed project such as FL Studio and Adobe Photoshop — improvements can always be made. As for Tau Grand Exchange, updates have obviously been stale for quite some time now. Unfortunately, as many of you know already, I have been completely out of commission for a very long time, due to a variety of annoying and/or debilitating series of events. My devotion, attention, and insistence on high-quality work is soon going to once again apply not only to Tau Grand Exchange, but all Tau scripts. Anyways, my point is this: If I announce the development of a new feature, it is implicit that the feature will never be forced upon you. With very, very few exceptions (none of which I can think of at the moment), you will always be able to choose to run the script exactly as it was before the update.
  17. Hello everyone! As some of you may know, I am mostly known for Tau Grand Exchange, my GE money making bot. However, I am looking to branch out and make something new. Below I have made a list of the types of things I would like my new script to be: Creative. I want to make something creative, innovative, or just plain fun! Perhaps the script already exists, but is no longer being updated, or doesn't have all the features you would like it to have. In that case, I would consider looking into it. Non-Combat. This isn't a set-in-stone rule, but in general, I would prefer to avoid making a combat script. If the script has some combat in it that is fine, but I don't want to make, say, a Green Dragon Killer. No Quests. If a small quest is involved in the script then so be it, but otherwise, I will not make a questing script. No High Level Requirements. I do not currently have a high level account, nor do I wish to create a script that requires a high level. Maybe sometime in the future, but not now. Dynamic. This isn't absolutely necessary, but it would be nice if the script contained some sort of dynamic goal, and/or perhaps a script with multiple steps involved, and/or a script that has aspects that can be done in a variety of different ways. A Thinker. I always like a challenge. If there is a script that seems like it would be complicated/difficult to create, I would love to give it a try. Note that that does not mean tedious. An example of something tedious would be a questing script. Not Too Niche. I want to make a public script, not a private script. I will only make something that would be useful to a decently large number of players. Well, that's pretty much it. I have a couple of ideas in mind already, but I'd like to hear what the TRiBot community has to say. Feel free to post below or PM me. Thank you all in advance! ~ Taco ~ Note to Tau GE Customers: Before anyone brings up "Hey, why aren't you working on Tau GE V2?", I want to say... that I am! Don't worry, getting Tau GE V2 released is still my priority, but I would like to have another project to work on as well.
  18. Hello Everyone! First and foremost, I want to apologize for my extended absence. As some of you know, I have been going through a very hard time for a while now, which has been more debilitating than I could have possibly imagined. That said, although I am not out of the tunnel yet, I do see the light at the end of it. I am making no promises given my current unstable/unreliable state, but I will say that I believe I will finally be able to get back to work, starting sometime in the next couple of days. I am not even going to make an attempt at an ETA on any updates, but I or a member of my customer support team will continue to keep you posted on any news pertaining to Tau GE development. I plan on implementing a hybrid of manual price checking items in tandem to the RSBuddy prices. This should improve the script's accuracy by a significant amount, although I don't know how long it will take to implement. Otherwise, know that the script does still work well. The only problem is that the RSBuddy servers aren't always reliable, which causes problems. I also have several other updates in mind, but I don't know if I will be implementing them now or just implementing them into Tau GE V2. We will just have to wait and see how things go. In conclusion, I want to once again thank everyone for being so patient. I look forward to once again being active in the TRiBot community! ~ Taco ~
  19. Announcement I encourage all customers — as well as my support team, of course — to take advantage of the Tau Support Discord Chat as much as possible. For over a year, my support team has been using Discord to provide excellent customer service. Discord is also the place in which you are most likely to get a reply from me. The TRiBot Forums PM system is clunky and slow to navigate, so PMs will oftentimes go unanswered for weeks. Not only that, but Discord allows messages to be pinned, which means no more copy pasta and important messages being smothered by new ones. Discord messages are typically answered within 24 hours, although I encourage users to contact my support team before contacting me. They are all very knowledgeable, and are quite frankly more familiar with the script than I am at this point. Keep in mind that any time I spend answering a PM is time that I am not spending working on improving Tau GE. On that note, my support team has been instructed to tack a link to the Tau Support Discord Chat at the end of every support-related they post on this thread. I hope all of you will take advantage of it. I have even recently added a channel just for talking and having fun! Thank you all, Your Friendly Neighborhood Taco
  20. Important Announcement

    I am pleased to inform you all that Tau Grand Exchange V2 development has been officially continued. Don't expect the script to be released any time soon; however, given the majority of the GUI work has been completed as well as a fair amount of the new "brain" (AI logic), you can expect at least a teaser by the holidays.

    As for the RSBuddy servers, it appears that they are working hard on a fix, and that they are for the most part fully functional. That being said, I don't want to rely entirely on RSBuddy to retrieve data, so I have decided to come up with an alternative to the RSBuddy API regardless of what winds up happening with their servers. Unless RSBuddy servers continue to refuse to cooperate, you can expect this update with the released of Tau Grand Exchange V2.


    If  you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. The best way to do this is through my Discord Support Chat, which you can find a link to in my signature.

    Thank you all for being such great customers!

Note that there is a chance Tau Ge V1 and Tau GE v2 will be separate scripts. This will depend on a lot of things and it may even remain a single script, but we shall see. I say this just as a heads up so nobody is surprised. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. The best way to do this is through my Discord Support Chat, which you can find a link to in my signature. Thank you all for being such great customers!
