Loving how this project turned out! Keep up the good work
First of all, it is much more convenient to just use one platform to get access to the majority of games. That is also the reason why other platforms such as Steam, Epic Games Store, etc. are very popular. Sure you can visit the website of that direct game, but you can also just do it all through the launcher. Keep in mind that we aren't trying to stop people from using websites, or use toplists to find the RSPS they want. We are just offering an alternative. On top of that, we are also planning on adding e.g. a login system, social features, and a leveling system. This means that like other systems such as Playstation, Xbox, Steam, etc. players will be able to compete against each other to see e.g. who has played most RSPS, who has gotten the highest total levels across all rsps's, etc.
Secondly, we are already at a stable point when it comes to fundings. The only reason we would be offering feature spots on the launcher is that it grants additional traction to other communities. Be aware that if we were to do everything for free, we would be down in debt really quickly. You can really say the same thing for anything. Why is Rune-Server taking charge of Affiliate rank? Why do you have to pay for Youtube Premium, Netflix or Spotify, etc?
Finally, a server that’s added to the launcher will be screened for viruses. If there’s something wrong the file will get deleted and a warning will be sent to the staff. If a server updates their client the same steps will occur. We will also be checking servers manually from time to time. Only authorized staff members can add servers, so we control which servers are accepted and which are not. With that being said, we are trying to keep the quality as high as possible.
We are open to any type of feedback. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or thoughts that can improve our launcher, feel free to share them. However, e don't have an endless amount of knowledge or money. If we would be able to create a Fort Knox, we would do so. Sadly, that is not the case.
Best of luck, leon makes some good points though to be fair
good luck with this, reminds me of my project I did back in 2012 - stopped because of the potential of malicious servers out there, due to mine working off scraping rune-server, runelocus & top100arena.
(my old project screenie)
Very cool idea. I agree with others that malware could be a potential issue, but as long as there is a thorough process for checking submissions for malware, I think it has really good potential.
Def a good upgrade to all RSPS which includes capitalism. I totally agree that we can make it have multiple servers listed as rows with their banners, and with one click it would download the client and launch it automatically.
This will allow players to play multiple servers at the same time.
I would start off by only allowing servers to join those with at least 150 average players online or more, and you list them based on their player count.
I would make it so it's mandatory to make the official and ONLY client download link to the launcher, otherwise, if they caught cheating they will get banned and removed.
I will join once its all done and some images are released! Good job on it once again!
Wondering where you got this idea from hehehe
Hope it works out lads, let the dream come true!
Let us just say that we are very excited! We truly believe that we can bring a lot of people together through this project!
