TRiBot Update Status

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

The purpose of this thread is to provide a central hub to convey information about the updates that are currently ongoing to fix Looking Glass in the TRiBot client, as it is currently not functioning. I'll be updating this post as I receive new information from the development team, and we'll also be answering any questions you may have!

Here's the current situation of Looking Glass:

  • OSBuddy support was put on hold a few months ago in favour of RuneLite support. As RuneLite was much more popular, and presumably ran lighter than OSBuddy
  • Java 7 support was removed from the client, also a few months ago. This allows for advanced Java 8 features to be used, but in the process removed Looking Glass support for the official OSRS client.
  • Two weeks ago, RuneLite pushed an update to disallow clients to hook to it. This was solved with Todd's RuneLite launcher
  • Last week, RuneLite pushed an update to (as far as I know) further prevent forks of the client from working. These forked clients were (to my understanding) offering features that broke Jagex's game rules, or did things RuneLite wasn't comfortable with. Such as automatic gear or prayer switching, etc.
    • Inadvertently this update broke our ability to hook to RuneLite as well
  • The developers of TRiBot are at a crossroads as to how to proceed. Now that it is clear that third party clients like RuneLite or OSBuddy can break our ability to hook to them, the most stable option long term looks to be to hook to the official RuneScape client. However, this means re-adding Java 7 support to some degree, which will take some time
  • Currently, the developers are pursuing the solution of hooking to the official client, and are working on re-adding the necessary Java 7 support to allow us to hook to the official client again.

As of May 30th, 2019 this is where development stands, and it is the current status of Looking Glass in TRiBot. In the meantime a workaround for this issue has been discovered by some industrious users. The workaround involves downloading a browser with Java support (such as PaleMoon or WaterFox) and running OSRS in http mode, and not https mode. To do this, ensure the URL of your OSRS game starts with http and not https (if it starts with https, replace it with http). Then launch TRiBot and select Looking Glass to hook TRiBot to the browser. You can see further instructions, and learn more about this find on this thread here:


Please feel free to post any questions or concerns you have on this thread, and please monitor this thread for updates as we work on getting Looking Glass back up and running! ?

Hi everyone.
We are attempting a number of approaches.
#1 We are refactoring the LG agent in java 7 so that we can support the official client.
#2 We are attempting to diagnose the current issue with OSBuddy and determine if it's even feasible.
#3.We are looking into other clients like Runestar.

As soon as we make a breakthrough we are going to push a release. Sorry for the downtime. We have no ETA at this time. Please continue to use the work-around in the banner.

    • Today marks a big day for TRiBot! To make it easier for users to use TRiBot, we've created installers available for every platform! These installers are all bundled with the latest version of OpenJDK 1.8 (Java 😎, which is LG compatible.

      Using TRiBot is now easy. Simply download the installer for your platform, install TRiBot, and run it. The TRiBot Loader will correctly identify the bundled JDK so there's no need to change the Java selection.


      EXE installer: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.exe

      MSI installer: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.msi

      Portable version: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.zip

      Mac OS

      Installer: TRiBot-macos-4.0.3.dmg

      Portable version: TRiBot-macos-4.0.3.tgz


      Installer: TRiBot-unix-4.0.3.sh

      RPM installer (CentOS/Fedora): TRiBot-linux-4.0.3.rpm

      DEB installer (Debian): TRiBot-linux-4.0.3.deb

      Portable version: TRiBot-unix-4.0.3.tar.gz

      Platform Independent

      JAR file: tribot-loader-4.0.3.jar

      Note that this jar file does not include the bundled JDK.

      Windows and Mac OS users may notice a warning message stating that the installer/application is un-recognized or un-trusted. Please ignore this message and proceed with running the installer/application. We need to acquire a code signing certificate so that we can sign the installers letting the operating system know that these files can be trusted. It will take a week or more to acquire one, so please hold tight.

      Other notable changes to the TRiBot Loader:

      Support getting the version from OpenJDK distributions

      Add check for bundled JDK

      Copy OpenJDK tools.jar to the bundled JDK if not present

      Set the current java as the first available list entry

      Ignore Java versions which are symbolic links

      Make the bundled JDK the preferred Java version

      Update icon images

      Reduce the number of HTTP calls

    • TRiBot is looking to improve a lot of its customer relationship management, customer on boarding process, customer experience, design elements, community engagement and pretty much everything else you can imagine when it comes to marketing.

      Our goal: To ensure that the marketing done TRULY reflects the experience and does not shine an inaccurate light on what TRiBot is lacking in.

      So I ask, what do you love about TRiBot and what do you hate about TRiBot? What does O S Bot, Rune M8, PowR Bot and Dre amBot do better? (yes I purposely didn't spell it right 😂).

    • Hello TRiBot,

      Today we have a significant release that has been in the works for the last month addressing several key issues, features and bugs in the backlog.

      With these changes, we are also including a new TRiBot Loader which will allow you to select any version that is released. This adds the flexibility of allowing you to revert to a previous version should an issue arise, run development only builds, view an accurate change log between versions etc. we are very proud to offer this feature and think it will add a lot more functionality down the road as we continue to release new versions.

      These changes include 80+ commits by our development team, a list of them is summarized below and also available for your viewing pleasure in the new TRiBot Loader.

      In addition, we have taken additional steps to improve as a development team by adding continuous integration and deployment into our workflow to assist in delivering timely releases such as bug fixes as well as new features on a weekly basis depending on our development cycle.

    • Over the last three weeks, I've been working on upgrading our server infrastructure. It's finally ready and is now live!


      Increased reliability - less server errors

      Increased availability - less downtime

      Increased security - keeping us and you secure

      Increased capacity - ability to serve you better

      Increased speed - less waiting for things to load

      Faster development - server and service updates will come faster

      What are the changes?

      Move from a single AWS EC2 instance to AWS ECS (Elastic Container Service)

      Distributed computing

      Load balancing

      Git management of server files and filesystem

      Redis caching


      AWS ECS (with 10 EC2 instances)

      AWS EFS (Elastic file system)

      Please bare with us as I continue to tune the server for maximum performance. Slow loading speeds may occur temporarily. I thank everyone for their patience.

      Please post on this thread if you experience any issues other than slow loading times.
