I got banned [RSPS]

Recommended Posts

Hello goodday everyone,

I know it's a bit odd I'm posting here but there aren't many forums where I can ask such questions. So I'm currently botting on a runescape private server for this I'm using 5 virtual machines, each machine with another IP. Now I got banned on two virtual machines. But when I change the IP-adress with a VPN it's still banned while the other machines are fine. I was thinking about a MAC-ban because each virtual machine has a seperate MAC-adres. But when I change the MAC-adress I still can't bypass the ban. So I was wondering if any of you guys know what type of ban they did on me. It looks like they track that particular virtual machine but how, what data do they have to track?

PS: I also can't make new accounts on the banned VM's

Thanks

 

EDIT: When I copy the virtual disk file from a "clean virtual machine" everything works fine. Still no clue what they are tracking.

maybe its UUID ban

 

Never heard about that one will look into it.

Just recreate new VM?

Idd that's an option that will work. But the server has around 100 active users (so it's pretty easy to spot bots), if they ban me each 12 hours I need to make a virtual machine everytime. And on the other hand I'm really interested how games can track you :)

They're probably storing a file on your virtual machine which they use as a flag.

@zippyyy is it consistently on the same VMs each time? Sometimes we try to make connections we think are there but really aren't. I have no way of gauging your objectivity. What percentage of the time does VM A get banned vs VM B? How big is your sample size?

No it isn't on the same VM's. I talked with the staff and they told me I got banned, they just didn't say which type of ban

Yep, either a file or some sort of registry flag. Best solution is just re-install the OS from an image on the VM

 

I really wonder which file that is. The options are limited, right? Also when I need to re-install everytime I also need to install pycharm, scripts, images, client etc which isn't really nice to do on a 2GB machine :D

If you want to ban someone based on hardware, you have two choices:

  • You either generate a hash code based on the user's computer's name, drive serial number, operating system, CPU etc., and you send that hash code to your server to later identify the machine.
  • You use some form of persistency, and leave some traces on that computer. And by traces I mean a file/registry which contains data relevant to the ban.

 

The first method can be bypassed by changing the physical hardware, or spoofing its data.

The second one can be bypassed by removing the file from the computer. This file might not be very easy to find, so doing a clean install of everything might be a better choice.

Not necessarily, an "image" usually refers to a hard drive image file or an operating system already installed and loaded with certain drivers/programs. In corporate environments this allows IT to install the operating system on employees computers already configured, rather than manually installing to each PC, manually installing Chrome on each PC, etc.

I tried to find some software to spoof hardware but didn't find anything good. Deleting the java game and it's cache and re-installing doesn't work either.

That's because the said file will almost always be located outside the installer's folder, to ensure persistency even if the user attempts to uninstall the game/program.

Your best bet would be to reinstall your VM.

    • 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 😂).

      Love,

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

      Why?

      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


      How?

      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.
