Yes, I'm aware I'm not supposed to make threads directed towards anyone and this title comes off as being directed towards apple, but that's not the point. Any mod is free to answer this. I heard from Apple a while ago that Jagex can see which client everyone is using. A lot of drama in this whole 3PC fiasco is caused by the common belief within our playerbase that Jagex can't see who's using what client. Could any mod provide proof, evidence, or insight on the matter? I only directed this towards Apple, because I know for a fact he has information on this topic as he's provided it once before. I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

Yes they can detect what client you're on, that's one of the ways they detect botters because they're using their own special botting client. "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans." -John Lennon

The answer to this would really put a lot of drama to sleep. I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

Jagex can tell what client you're using to a limited extent.

They know if you're using the default client.

They know if you're using OSBuddy.

They know if you're using Runelite.

They know if you're using a botting client.

OSHD client functioned in a way that was identical to the botting client, and would be mistakenly identified as such.

Part of the original controversy with Runelite revolved around its open source nature, which meant that bots could be developed with the client. Runelite-like bot clients could potentially be indistinguishable from the runelite client itself.

Jagex can identify clients. I do not believe they can identify all plugins used, however, which is why a blanket third party ban is needed. Jagex can certainly tell when someone modifies the click order for something like menaphites or prayer altars.

However, I doubt Jagex would be able to detect plugins that show where enemy attacks will land, plugins that solve clue scroll puzzles, etc, since they don't actually change what the player is interacting with. Even RS3 has overlays for these, which would be impossible for Jagex to detect. And yet nothing is done about these.

I know, Miu. I just want a mods' confirmation for something else. I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

I don't think an Fmod would have any further details on this than we do. Only Jagex knows for sure, and they're not gonna tell how to avoid their own detection systems.


I'll try tweeting them. It's worth a try. If I explain my reasoning about the 3PC drama, I think they might understand.
