Anyone believe bots like iDungeon, etc. will ever return?

  1. It seems like the amount of script bot writers/ ambition to code new sophisticated scripts bots has dropped a lot from back in the day.

    Anyone believing the botting community will ever be at where it used to be?

    Bot script bot on top of the script bot of bot
  2. With Runescape 3 having much lower player numbers than it has had historically, there isn't as much of a demand to create sophisticated bots like in years gone by.

    Furthermore, Jagex have changed the game when it comes to bot detection quite significantly - what you may have gotten away with in the past would get you banned now. This in turn means the way bot clients work with the game client has changed too.

    iDungeon was amazing, my best run was nearly 3 days straight without issues. I doubt we will ever see the complexity and stability of a bot like that again.
  3. I believe that bots to a similar quality will be created sometime in the near future.

  4. Also, I think that RedDungeon might come back.
  5. Idungeon was amazing. some of the scripts bots available are still pretty neat.
  6. Just out of curiosity, how would you compare your awesome skills to the one that made iDung
  7. Kiko wrote the whole thing in one huge class, so while slash may not have developed the most well known dungeoneering bot in history, he sure has a better understanding of modularizing things and designing software.
  8. That's what I thought :)
  9. People are busy. For writing complex bots you need time, nerves and sympathy, knowledge of rs for this game.

    So i doubt it will happen before school/college/jobs have vacation/holiday.
  10. This plus smaller player base + less demand = less money making opportunities, which make things like school/college/jobs seem more worth it.

    I'd also argue that the people who developed the "legendary" bots from years gone by have now outgrown Runescape - most people grow up and move on in life.
  11. and don't get me wrong, there were plenty of super sophisticated bots in comparison if not greater back in the day no doubt, idung was just one i took the most advantage of.

    that autoslayer bot if i remember correctly was absolutely incredible.

    maybe were just an older crowd now and not much younger generation has come to fill the shoes.

    I might add, but I'm not too sure about this assumption but it definitely seems that the clients have completely revolutionized, while the bots seemed to have peaked?
