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.

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 have installed the JDK and updated my java to the latest version and tribot won't open. I re-installed them and still won't open. I am able to open DreamBot/RSbot without any issues. I just cannot get tribot to open. How come?

Run the tribot jar via command line, paste the error message.

    • Over the past few months, I’ve been working diligently on a new project - TRiBot X. Everything has been written from the ground up, with all of the best practices of software engineering. Every aspect of TRiBot has been re-imagined to support three main goals: flexibility, useability, and reliability.

    • 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 😂).

    • 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 ElastiCache (Redis)

      AWS Load Balancing

      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.

    • This release will:

      Fix prayers and world hopper API (Thanks @JoeDezzy1 and @erickho123)

      Improve banking API (Thanks @Encoded)

      Adds methods for returning and using Java Lists, rather than arrays

      Slightly randomizes some hardcoded behaviour

      Removes sleeps from waitConditions; the efficiency saving potential is negligible in these use-cases, therefore cleaner code is preferable

      Other back-end improvements

      Note: If you are using LG, please restart both the RS client and TRiBot.
