  1. What kind of developers are you seeking? Skills, availability, ...
  2. Hello, Which revision are you looking for? RS3 (900+)? Or OSRS (100+)? Or something like RS in 2011 (700+) or maybe something like RS in 2006 (317+)? The revisions are also split up into HD and non-HD. HD started at around 562 I believe. I suggest you go with a popular revision so that there is a lot of information available to get you on your way.

    We actively remove votes that we know for sure are cheated. Unfortunately, we cannot simply remove votes that we aren't sure are cheated. We use various techniques to determine cheated votes and really it's a cat and mouse game. We can definitely say we have one of the least cheated toplists out there, but that doesn't mean there is no cheating. Feel free to come up with a viable way to prove these votes are cheated and do let us know. P.S.: Why the pessimistic attitude?
  4. Nice Good luck with your project! Are you also properly porting new interfaces etc?

    Cant open any RSPS??

    Okay the errors are coming from JNLP. But JNLP shouldn't be used to run these jars, only for JNLP files. I don't know why it's trying this, but JNLP has a restriction on file size. It's the "next version" of web apps in Java. Run this: https://johann.loefflmann.net/en/software/jarfix/index.html It may help.
  6. I recommend using Git and regularly committing changes so you can revert if it becomes unrepairable.
  7. It's a game of determination. Trace everything back to things you DO know the name of. Figure out what things do by playing with them. For example, change values, see what happens. It requires A LOT of patience and quite a bit of skill. But this is how I found And as you can see, this is just a small thing and I never even finished doing it. At one point however, you've renamed so many variables that everything starts to make sense :). Also, if you can find a runetek source leak (they are out there), you can search for code fragments that are structurally the same, and learn a lot that way.
  8. We cannot help you. The server you are having problems with is independent from us and you should get help there.

    Welcome, first user of 2019!
  10. It's the search text field taking focus through the popup. Going a little bit to the right of the entry allows you to click on it. Thanks for letting us know! @Ikiliki
  11. Looks good, besides being totally dark!
  12. I think this is totally stupid, but I'm against gambling. HOWEVER I can see this getting traction because most rsps kids love gambling.
  13. The entire feature set of Java (not all the standard API features) is used during RSPS development. Of course that depends on the goal and the thoroughness. But, besides having a vast API, you rather quickly use all of Java's language capabilities, and the most important parts of the API (things that are commonly used, that they teach partially in courses). That being said, as per your words, you can get started with less and figure things out on the way.
  14. Quite complete understanding is required. You will need to go through the entire course, and more. Most importantly, you will have to teach yourself by playing around with stuff. Preferrably nothing RSPS related.
  15. You should, first and foremost, learn Java: http://tutorials.jenkov.com/java/index.html Don't expect to be proficient at it after reading "some stuff". This requires A LOT of playing with, fiddling, and knowledge comes with experience. Once you know Java enough that you feel confident you can interpret and read said code, start playing around with reverse engineering a runescape client, figuring out its ways. At this point, you may need help from other people. You will run into many obstacles, but none are impossible to overcome, especially not with the help of others. Once you got a summarized overview of how things work, you may either make your own server from scratch, or use an existing one and mess around with it. Once you are comfortable enough, you can begin crafting your custom content. You will find that some things in RSPS are particularly hard and nobody really has a way of doing it. Those who might, probably will not want to share it. Furthermore, it doesn't hurt to accumulate any information you can find about RSPS and RS in general, related to technology: http://rsps.wikia.com/wiki/Runescape_Private_Server
  16. Impressive that you're still going! Arix is pleased.

    Hey Everyone

    Welcome! There are plenty of downloads in the downloads section of the appropriate revisions. The revisions are divided into RS2 (up to around 508), RS2HD (from around 508 to around 742), RS3 (everything above) and OSRS (100+). Furthermore, tutorials can be found on how to get started.
  18. While I agree with the crappy code part, attempting to develop a server (preferrably from scratch, even if it gets nowhere) is a great exercise. It trains your insight, your skills in searching for information, it trains design principles if you try to make it as best as you can, and while RSPS in itself might not be directly usable in a normal software development environment, there are many aspects that you can learn that you CAN use. For example, networking code. Motives for the way they did it, how networking code works, data management, and more game industry specific, game engine mechanics, ... While existing RSPS resources are not a prime example of how to program, they sure contain a lot of stuff you can use for yourself to do it right. In addition to @StevenAbraham's suggestions, reading the code and documentation of clients like RuneLite can be an enormous help to understand RS technicalities.

    Secure HTTP

    Let's keep our passwords private; enable SSL for the entirety of RuneLocus. It is especially easy now with Let's Encrypt and the cert bot to protect any website. Someone suggested CloudFlare, but I don't think that's necessary.

    Secure HTTP

    Yes I'm sure it does. However, telling me to serve my images over HTTPS is not a solid way to make sure everyone else does to get rid of the warning that not all content on the website is served over HTTPS, which is an empty warning in itself. Even after changing my signature, this is still mixed content. Also, the security is using a deprecated SSL version.

    Secure HTTP

    Image content is usually not served over HTTPS anyway. If you want to fix this, you should proxy images through your own HTTPS endpoint. There are plugins for this that rewrite urls.
