No matter what, Looking Glass doesn't work

Recommended Posts

I want to start off by saying I know there are a million threads that already exist on this matter - i've scanned all of them and tried all the tips to no avail.

No matter what I try, I can't get looking glass to work. When I try to hook the client, one of three things will happen: 

1. Standard message telling me I need to run tribot in 32 bit and RS client is most likely in 32 bit. I've tried this; same message appears, saying that I need to run tribot in 32 bit (currently in 32 bit).

2. The LG client will hook to the osrs client and I'll get a black screen. The red cursor will make tracks of itself as I drag it across this black screen. Then nothing will happen.

3. When using osbuddy cross platform, the LG client actually does hook and the screen appears. However, I am unable to click or type on either the LG client or the Osbuddy client. If I close the tribot window, I can then use osbuddy again.

These are the main results when I try and use LG. 

My personal troubleshooting of this issue:

1. I'm currently using java 8 jdk 102 which I've heard is the most stable, however I have tried pretty much all of them (211, 202 212 etc).

2. Used cross platform osbuddy, runelite, regular osrs client etc. None work with LG on my end.

3. Deleted tribot, java, osrs, osbuddy, runelite and reinstalled all following the method einstein laid out in a post that seemed to help a lot of people. It didn't work for me.

4. Deleted cache, hooks etc., still nothing.

If an expert is willing to help me that would mean a great deal. I can provide screenshots, window sharing or anything that needs to be done as I've purchased VIP extended a couple of times recently and still haven't been able to use it.

The working setup for LG requires OSBuddy cross-platform jar and 32-bit JDK 8.

I'm able to hook the Tribot client to the .jar version of OSbuddy.  However the clicks will not register through tribot LG.  For example, the bot will run and try to switch to the inventory tab but the clicks dont register with the client.  Any ideas on how to fix this?

When I use the OSBuddy cross-platform jar and 32-bit JDK 8, LG hooks to the client and mirrors the screen, but clicks and button presses do not register making it impossible to run a script.

meh i've given up, used 32 bit jdk with the jar and still can't hook even with a fresh install

Feel free to get in contact with me, I'm trying to experiment with as many different setups as possible ?

Did you fix the issue of not being able to click / type on the tribot client? If so, how did you change the heap size thing?

i found that just re-starting it fixes it when that happens, and on the login panel there's an option to change the heap size, keep it at the default 386mb and try

      I've noticed some new TRiBotters have had some troubles finding out sources of how to do certain things, such as using advanced scripts and often get lost in the forums.

      We are still getting posts asking where to start, what to do, recommended scripts, etc. 

      As many of you know, I am new to the team, and had troubles myself learning how to bot, let alone script. 

      So, what our team decided to do was make it easier to learn how to bot, how to script, and just become an overall better botter and scripter faster. 

      As some of you might have seen, I've posted 3 new blogs, you can check it out by clicking on the following picture or here.

      These first 3 blogs are the first of many blogs that will be TRiBot official. They are encouraged to be challenged, improved upon and act as A Best Practices Guide for Botters.

      What information would you like to see in the blogs?

      👇 [TEASER] 👇




      We are going to be hosting a  CONTEST  this  OCTOBER.

      Its scary to think how soon you'll find out.👻

      Stay tuned.

    • 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.
