Here we go again. SwiftKit illegal to use

Recommended Posts

Edit: I want make this clear. While I strongly disagree with this, it is not my intention to incite a riot or flame war against Jagex. Rioting didn't work the first time, and it won't work this time. I wanted to post this to make players aware of it, simply because so many players use SK. It is important they know how we feel, but we should be able to do that in a respectful in mature way.

 

 

 

RSOF QFC:14-15-786-58916870

 

 

 

Hey all,

 

 

 

To clear up any confusion, 1dolfinsfan is quoting a post made by Mod Hohbein, they are not actually Mod Hohbein themselves.

 

 

 

Sorry to disappoint you but Swift Kit is not allowed.

 

 

 

I realise there has been some confusion over this with some people saying yes its okay to use but Jagex is very firm about this and it is not.

 

 

 

Don't worry I won't be scouring the thread for those who have admitted having it but I highly recommend you remove it as soon as possible while I go and hide your posts.

 

 

 

Thanks.

 

 

 

Now mods are saying they will release an offical statement regarding the issue soon. I know tons of people who use SK and think it's perfectly legal. I guess let anybody you know using it to beware.

Update (June 4): Another Jmod has responded in the RSOF:

 

 

 

74894395.jpg

 

 

 

A Swifkit developer also responded on page 6:

 

 

 

Hi everyone, I'm one of the lead developers for SwiftKit, and I will be happy to tell you all that SwiftKit is 100% legal to use, according to the rules Jagex has set out for third party programs. These "Jmods" are obviously unaware and uneducated as to what SwiftKit is or does, which is a shame when they open their mouth without thinking of the consequences.

 

 

 

SwiftKit uses Internet Explorer, meaning that it's completely undetectable, and downright stupid why it would be illegal. If no "3rd party programs are allowed", then why the hell is there a set of rules governing them? I'm not sure if that RSF thread was posted here, but if you see it it was 31 pages of community members disproving the mods rather harshly.

 

 

 

It's worth saying that in the event SwiftKit (or SwiftSwitch) ever was not allowed to use, we were always contacted beforehand, and allowed to work with Jagex to rectify the problem. We were never contacted, nor aware of any changes in rules.

 

 

 

Don't worry folks, not one (1) person has EVER been banned for using SwiftKit, and no will ever be.

Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change.

Can they even detect if you use it or not? It seems like it would be pretty hard to do..

Why don't they just take the time to work something out with the devs/Strider?

 

 

 

I'm sure they know damn well it's perfectly fine in terms of security.

Who cares, I see no benefits to using SS. RS has just about everything SS has now.

 

 

 

Quicklinks? High scores barely an inch away? MP3 player? IRC Built in? Calculators? Timers and Stopwatches? Notepad?

 

No?

" The keyword here is blackwhite. Like so many Newspeak words, this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. Applied to a Party member, it means a loyal willingness to say that black is white when Party discipline demands this. But it means also the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary. This demands a continuous alteration of the past, made possible by the system of thought which really embraces all the rest, and which is known in Newspeak as doublethink. Doublethink is basically the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

I personally like the ease it is to take screen shots, and the highscores without going to another window. It actually is very helpful

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And its swiftkit now, just so you know..

A screenshot taker that dates your picture and crops it for you.

 

 

 

A armory that allows you to see the bonus of whatever items you want to wear.

 

 

 

A timer that lets you know how long you've been playing.

 

 

 

A direct link to the rs forums, homepage and high scores.

 

 

 

Direct links to almost any guide you'd need.

 

 

 

Built in treasure trail coodinator finder.

 

 

 

Roll-over skills which show you level, exp needed for next level and rank.

 

 

 

An item, monster, shop and clan database.

 

 

 

A music player.

 

 

 

And the list could really go on forever. You're a total moron if you think Runescape's browser capabilities match Swiftkit.

Highscores - for looking up other people, not yourself :|

 

MP3 - Some people don't use iTunes

 

IRC is so much more useful than a CC, posting pics, having more people in it, not having to be on RS at the time of use, and EXP trackers.

 

Calculators - Its more convenient.

But theres no Tip.it!! There's no Tip.It! [goes into a mental breakdown]

 

 

 

With that said I find swiftkit useful not because of the keypoints that Outsanity metioned, but having an old computer, lately Java and IE7 running together causes lag [bleep]es and process problems, and dont start with firefox. That thing HATES me using Java applications with a passion.

this is so stupid... they determined years ago that ss wasn't a danger to them whatsoever... last time all ss had to do to become "legal" was to remove direct links to specific servers. ss doesn't change or even interact with the code of the actual game, it's really just a client within a client... I guess they figured since people are pking again they wanted to annoy pkers again by making the fastest way of looking someone up illegal :roll:

I think someone needs to go find the quote with Jagex saying it was legal. Personally, I think mod Seven is full of [cabbage] and doesn't know what he's talking about. There are so many Jagex mods now I feel like they lose communication sometime. This could just be a situation where he never got the memo. lol.

 

 

 

And I don't care. I'm still using SwiftKit. Ban me, Jagex. Do it. Lose a customer of four years because you want to place a pointless rule in the game.
