I thought that OSB was owned and created by someone who works at Jagex?
I just find it so stupid I was enjoying RuneLite just started using it and noticed a lot of FPS improvements I didn’t care about the features, the only thing I liked was the way RuneScape ran without lag
Ok guys tomorrow I’ll make a runescape client and ask for money for shit features then I’ll give it all to Jagex.
10000% allowed I’m sure right?
Try suing me
(it also makes easier to detect 3rd party clients) but i think OSB is here to stay as long as jagex gets revenue.
also it isnt so bad to pay 3 bucks each month to get pro plugins lol
Very reminiscent of the approach Jagex took to private servers in late 2012/early 2013 when they threatened almost all the top 10 servers that they would take legal action if they did not shutdown. Interestingly half the servers ignored Jagex and no such action was taken. Jagex has been threatening legal action for over a decade but has still never taken anyone to court. Perhaps this is something RuneLite should bare in mind.
The other interesting parallel is the rumours of a non-disclosure agreement between OSBuddy and Jagex of which the connections are well documented. Much was made of a financial agreement being struck between Jagex and Soulsplit back in 2012, a time when SS had a massive monopoly over RSPS and took a significantly large proportion of traffic and revenue from the market. When all the other servers were threatened, nothing was said about Soulsplit.
tl;dr the possible model Jagex use is clear when dealing 3rd party client, rsps (or even botting?) providers, form a (financial?) agreement with one organisation that dominates the market then threaten the competition with legal action. That way some of the loss of potential revenue to underground markets is retained.
