How to Start Botting Old School Runescape with TRiBot

Originally posted at RSBotSpot

TRiBot is one of the most popular Old School Runescape bots. Released in 2013, it’s used by thousands of botters and has a wide selection of scripts.

TRiBot is under active development, and includes features like a break handler, proxy support, and antiban measurements.

This guide will explain how start botting Old School Runescape with TRiBot.

Create a TRiBot Account

Start by registering an account on the TRiBot forums.

Your forum login details will also be used for the TRiBot client.

Install JDK 8

In order to use TRiBot, you’ll first need to install Java Development Kit version 8 (JDK8).

You can download the official JDK8 installer here.

To download: click ‘Accept License Agreement’, click the download link for your operating system, and create an account.

Once downloaded, run it to install JDK8.

Download & Open TRiBot

You can download the official TRiBot client here.

Double click the TRiBot_Loader.jar file to run it.

If you experience issues, like TRiBot opening with Winrar, download and run JarFixer (Windows) and try again.

If it isn’t already, select JDK 1.8 in the ‘Java Version’ dropdown box.

Enter your login details, and click login.


You’ve installed JDK8 and got TRiBot running!

If you still need help, ask on the TRiBot forums or our Runescape botting discord.

Now it’s time to get familiar with the TRiBot repository.

TRiBot Repository Basics

The TRiBot repository is where you manage your scripts and subscriptions. It works using a credit system.

TRiBot credits cost $1 per credit, and are used to buy VIP subscriptions and scripts. You can purchase TRiBot credits with a verified PayPal account or credit card.

You can also purchase credits with Runescape gold or cryptocurrency. YoHoGold, our sister site, is a great place to buy TRiBot credits.

TRiBot Pricing

TRiBot has various subscription levels which can be seen below:

Free VIP Trial VIP VIP-Extended
$0 $1 per 2 Days $6.50 per Month $8 per Month
Access to the client Access to the client Access to the client Access to the client
Able to run one premium script at a time Able to run unlimited free, vip, and premium scripts Able to run unlimited free, vip, and premium scripts Able to run unlimited free, vip, and premium scripts
      Ability to use proxies while botting
      Access to Looking Glass feature

They best way to start would be with either VIP Trial or regular VIP. This will give you unlimited access to all VIP scripts.

There are also premium scripts which can be purchased individually.

Buy VIP Subscription

Once you have credits, you can purchase TRiBot VIP.

With VIP, you can run unlimited instances of all VIP scripts!

Select a TRiBot Script

Open the TRiBot Repository filter by category, and pick ‘Free’ (meaning free for VIP users) as price.

Here’s my search for a woodcutting script:

TRiBot Woodcutting Script Search

Click the info button to see more.

When selecting a script to use, there are a few things you can do to ensure its quality:

  • Check last update date: An old date doesn’t always mean a script is broken. But if it hasn’t been updated in over a year, it’s typically outdated.
  • Read the 1st thread post: From the script info page, click View Thread. Here you can read details about the script’s features and usage.
  • Read last few thread pages: Read posts to get a good idea of how users feel about the script, how active the developer is, and if there are any outstanding issues.

If all of these points check out, you’ve found a solid script!

Click Activate to add it to your TRiBot script collection.

Launch Runescape

Open TRiBot, and click the New Client button to launch runescape.

Log into the Runescape account you want to bot.

Run A Script

Once Runescape has loaded, click the Start Script button at the top right.

Select your script, and click start.


Loading Runescape & Starting a Script

Fill out the info in the GUI, and you’re good to go.

 You Did it!

Congratulations, you got your first bot running!

This is just the beginning. TRiBot has lots of scripts and other features to make your botting experience smoother.

If you’re ready to buy credits for VIP or scripts, you can do so at:

yeaj its updated. its like, opening under an internet explorer app and not going anywhere, ive tried opening it through java but when I click open with>java it says to files found


Okay, my next suggestion would be to uninstall tribot completely and reinstall. You can uninstall tribot by deleting the jarfile, and then deleting the .tribot folder in you AppData roaming folder. Also, have you ever run the legit OSRS client on your computer? If so, you may need to clear your game cache. Instructions for that can be found at this link. One last thing, when you respond to someone on this site, they won't be notified unless you hit the "Quote" button under their comment, and then click "Quote Comment" in the bottom right.

      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.
