There have been many, many threads where people are having issues not knowing how to install TRiBot, not knowing how to add scripts, not knowing how to auto-login, etc. SO, deciding to write this tutorial to try and limit those threads, reduce headaches, and get you botting ASAP!
I would recommend starting by making sure you have the latest version of Java downloaded and installed. This is one of, if not the most current problem that most people have. You can check which version of java you have installed here: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
As of 08/05/13, it should look like:
If it does not, you can download the latest version from http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp
You also have to make sure that TRiBot uses the correct java. TRiLeZ made a decent guide about that which you can view here: https://tribot.org/forums/index.php?/topic/471-ensuring-tribot-uses-the-right-java/?hl=%2Bensuring+%2Btribot
Now, lets get on to business. To start, we obviously need to go to tribot.org. Click "Download TRiBot" and find the file where you have your downloads sent to.
Chuck that onto your desktop to make your life easier. Now, double click that and enter your TRiBot username and password. Once you've done that, this should open up:
I highly suggest you set your TRiBot client to open up in Lite Mode. What this does is reduce CPU usage, which in turn makes your computer run better, which means you can potentially have more clients open in Lite Mode than you would in regular mode. To do that, click File -> Settings, and you should come to this:
Please note that sometimes, even if you follow ^, TRiBot may still open up in it's regular mode. Just keep doing the same thing until it opens in Lite Mode. You may have to redownload TRiBot if the problem persists.
If TRiBot is in Lite Mode, it should look like this:
Congratulations! You should now be able to fully play Runescape.
Now, lets go over adding scripts. To do that, find a script you like in these forums: https://tribot.org/forums/index.php?/forum/98-old-school-scripts/
Once you've found a script you like, download it. You should either get a .class file(s), or a .zip file. If it's the latter, open it up and you should see a .class file(s). If you are trying to open .zip files on a linux server, then you will need to type "unzip file.zip" (replace "file" with the actual file you are trying to unzip). You will need to place those files into this folder:
If you can not locate your AppData folder, there are many ways to access it. I'll just cover 2:
OR you can just click File > View Local Scripts Folder directly from the TRiBot client, and you should be taken to the scripts folder.
You may not be able to view your AppData folder, as it is 'hidden' on default. The reason some folders are automatically 'hidden' is so that the user does not accidentally delete these files. Depending on what type of computer you're running, there are several ways to make your hidden files visible. I recommend following the guide on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-see-hidden-files-in-windows/ which covers all Windows operating systems, or http://www.maketecheasier.com/display-hidden-files-and-folders-in-windows/2009/09/05 for Windows Vista/7/8 specifically.
If for some reason you can locate your AppData folder, the Roaming folder, and the .tribot folder, but you can't locate your bin or script folders, just make them in the order of the picture where you can see my .class files (AppData -> Roaming -> .tribot > bin > scripts).
Once you have your scripts placed in their correct locations, you are ready to bot! Lets go through the process of making sure that your account logs in for you should it log out for whatever reason.
Here is what you need to do:
Now, get to the location in Runescape where you are planning to bot. Once you are there:
This should open up:
Follow the steps listed, press "Start" and if you've followed my instructions your script should have taken over.
I hope this helps somebody in some way, that's all I'm going for.
