If a player uses a 3rd-party program, instapermaban them. Unfair advantages, outright cheating,and botting are all over!

But at a terrible cost.

If you think this would end all cheating you must not know this games meta which is abuse every piece of new content because it's broken on release. Ask ironman who played the mode since it started they were cheating through the use of shops. Players even made it very clear it would happen and Jagex still didn't have it fixed when it came out.

well, those are Jagex's fault, and found within RS itself. Jagex would quickly fix exploits such as those.

Obviously not because players made this issue very clear before ironman even released. To this day we have ironman out there who straight up cheated their game mode.

Ehh.

* You can't play Runescape in browsers these days because Java is not supported anymore.
* The official client won't install for me because it thinks the Java installation is broken, which it isn't. Jagex could ship their own Java implementation like Minecraft does to fix this.

But as long as it is this way, using a 3rd party client is the only way for me at least to play OSRS.

Also, if Jagex should implement such a rule, the malicious 3rd party clients would simply spoof their User Agent (which they probably already do, anyway), so it would be indistinguishable from running the game in a browser. Without too much work even the User Agent of the official client could be figured out and spoofed.

This suggestion, implemented, would cause a lot of hassle for legitimate players, but barely bother malicious ones.

Aaalso, who wants to play with that tiny game window on current monitors? With 3rd party clients at least you can adjust the size and make it look more like RS in 2010.

1. The vanilla OSRS client does provide its own bundled OpenJDK on Windows

2. You can do UI scaling with the vanilla client currently, but it is tricky. You can use the -Dsun.java2d.uiScale=# flag to do this (# being any number 2 or higher), but it only works on Java 9 and higher, and the OpenJDK provided on the Windows OSRS client is 8. Running the official jar through updated Java works to overcome this though, but I found it much more hassle to pull this off on Windows than Linux.

Edit: Some corrections on #2. The vanilla client on Windows 10 already automatically scales, and there's no need to mess with the Java version or flags in that case. On Linux, I believe as long as Java is version 9 or higher, on GNOME, it'll automatically scale too.

And that's why people use the third party clients, because you just open them and automatic scaling~

No support. 3rd party clients aren't against the rules, nor are they cheating.


perhaps not outright, but isn't seeing your foe's exact health kind of unfair? Or exactly what tile to stand on so your foes can't hurt you?
