Are you fed up with playing on RuneScape's private servers? Would you like to learn how to create your own private RuneScape server? This RSPS tutorial will help you to create a RuneScape Private Server.
It will take a while to create a successful RuneScape private Server with hundreds of players. However, it is possible to create a basic RSPS that your friends can use.
This tutorial will cover the following:
Java's JRE package must be installed in order to play RuneScape. To create a RSPS however, you will also need to download Java's JDK package (JDK = Java Development Kit).To download JDK so you can start creating your RSPS, please visit the Oracle website at: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.htm.
So you want to know how to create a RuneScape Private Server. You should be aware of a few things.
A RuneScape private Server has two sides. The client-side is the applet that your players will load and use to play your RSPS. The applet your players will load to play your RSPS is the client-side. The server-side program is a program that only you can have and see. It is the secret to your RSPS. Your server-side program will be used to connect to the client that your players load.
It takes a lot of programming knowledge to create a RuneScape server private server. There are many RSPS sources available. In fact, we have a forum that contains hundreds of RuneScape sources.
Each source has its own unique characteristics, so we can't point you directly to a source. It is entirely up to you to decide what you prefer. Register on our forum to access the download forum.
Now that you have your RuneScape server files you will need to make it available online before anyone else can play. Hosting a RuneScape Private Server is what we call it.
This is the easiest and most cost-effective option. However, you will need to keep your computer up 24/7 to allow your players to connect. We recommend renting a virtual private server. They are very affordable. Prices even start at $5 USD per month
You have the files and a server. What are you waiting for?! Get your server up!
You can create your own RuneScape server simply by opening the "Run.bat” file (exact name may vary depending on the source/version that you are using). This file comes with the RSPS sources files you have downloaded.
Although you now know how to create a RuneScape server, there are still no players. To help you launch a successful RuneScape private servers advertising campaign, we have created a "How to Advertise a RSPS" guide. You can also share your server with us!
