I can't believe cheat codes are being allowed in a game... because they aren't cheat codes they involve videos and you don't actually r2r2 left down left down wait... actually you are


???

How is this in any way a "cheat code"?

If it was jagex wouldve banned it by now so jagex themselves have disproven your post.

Nonaction is not the same as approval. If it were bug abuse would not exist, nor would we have thousands of bugs in this game that never get fixed, plenty of which can be abused. By the letter of the rule Alt1 is against the rules.

Yea i fail to see any connection between alt1 and bug abuse.

Its just a helpful app someone made like the oshd or w/e, which later got approved by the jmods.


It's about cheating and cheaters getting away with it because Jagex doesn't care or whatnot. Your argument is simply "some folks get away with alt1 therefore it is okay" when ethics don't work that way. By the letter of the rules Alt1 is cheating, simple as that. Same as that bug abuse is cheating. That folks get away with it doesn't mean it's not cheating.

No, his argument is that "Jagex has literally taken no action against it despite being aware of it, therefore they must think it's okay".

Alt1 has existed for years. Jagex has known about it for years. If they had an issue with it, they would have done something by now, whether it was announcing that they considered it cheating, banning the people who have used it, or actively taking legal action to shut it down (all things that they have done with software that they consider cheating).

But they haven't done anything, so they very clearly don't.

They ban bots. They ban bug abusers. They ban people using software they disapprove of. And yet, they've never done anything about Alt1. What does that say to you?


Plenty of bug abusers or bots don't get banned. Bug abusers rarely get banned, usually get away with it unless it's treasure hunter bugs. Jagex probably just doesn't think it's worth investing more manpower or resources into it or doesn't care one way or another about the integrity of their game. Bug abuse is so commonplace some bugs literally get explanations on how to abuse them on the wiki without Jagex doing anything about it.
