    Hi all, I've been browsing around these forums and checking out many different server bases, trying to learn a thing or two about Runescape Coding for a few weeks now. I've come to the realisation that I am just not learning a great deal. I have tried to teach myself as much as possible and write my own skills/features only to find myself copy and pasting or just quitting overly frustrated. I now think I should take a step back and take the time to just really grab a strong understanding of how RSPS's are constructed an written, what are the main features of in the code of runescape servers.

    I would like to ask the community for some advice, some material they have used to learn themselves really how to write great servers.

    So please leave your thoughts, strategies, material and knowledge.

    Start with a blank PI with tutorials. And take in the information you get from the tutorials (If you want you can copy the tuts by writing em instead of copying and pasting. That helped me). And while you do that. You'll start to notice what files things are in and what different variables mean and what different functions do. Until you know your server like the back of your hand

    Hopefully I helped a bit.

    First grasp the basic concepts of Java. Using loops, arrays, type comparing, enumerations, and so forth. Once you're confident, grab a completely clean source. Whether this be Hyperion, Apollo, or even Project Insanity. The knowledge you gain from either can be applied to any server (Java is Java). Just look through the documentation and get a feel for things, make yourself familiar with the code that you're working with.

    Then, just start attempting to add content. Try and stray from using tutorials and do it yourself, using references if needed. Best thing to remember is patience. If you get stuck, just go take a break, get something to eat or play some sport. Then come back to it when your mind is clear. Often the most frustrating mistakes are the simple ones you've overlooked.

    Another good tactic is to have someone you can talk to about your code. Discuss ideas back and forth, and help each other out, providing tips or some extra insight.

    I recommend using an IDE such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, or Netbeans. It will help you in learning and can provide some useful tips in error correction and debugging.

    My tips would be:

    Use an IDE (e.g. Eclipse)

    This is how i learned: DONT start with a blank PI its way too hard if you started. Download a source from the download section (preferebly a old one like erasedpkz).
    Choose a base with many features you like. Now here is how the magic happens; Mostly the stuff released is filled with 100+ bugs. Go find the bugs and try debugging your code and then fix the bugs.

    Also watch youtube vids i used this; (there is 100+ parts)

    Here's a tip for you; don't start with PI if you want to learn anything about Java.

    I'm just learning and I've looked at both Project Insanity and Hyperion.

    Hyperion is SOOOOO much better.
    Spoiler for Projects I Support:
