No, as in no i don't want to use anything other than the grand exchange inside the game.


I agree with this. If such a thing became available it should be an in-game feature to use by everyone or not at all.


Why?

Unfortunately, Jagex would probably never add such features as it would be promoting flipping in their eyes. Once one gets the hang of it, flipping is a very powerful, and slightly easy method to make money. This app is only intended to make things even easier.

It would be about the same as if Jagex added an in-game tool to track gambling profits (but of course, flipping is no where near as controversial as those gambling games).

Yes please. Great concept!


I appreciate your feedback :)

Things are going great and I just got another major feature working (which, unfortunately, introduced new bugs that I now have to fix).

My best bet is to develop an iOS (iPod/iPhone/iPad) version.

However, to do so would be to a) apply as a Registered Apple Developer and b) involve some rewriting and complete redesign of the program. That being said, I would be more than happy to develop an iOS version should the Mac version receive a certain amount of support.

I have currently just updated to Alpha 1.0 and all core features are working. I'm trying to get in contact with Tip.It administrators to discuss my options.

So basically you're coding something which will let you look into what everyone is flipping so you know what to flip yourself? :D

The only internet access my app requires is when it a) searches for an item on the Grand Exchange, b) extracts the item ID, and c) extracts the image for that item. It never sends anything back to the internet.

Should it be a problem, I will definitely allow the possibility of no internet access (eliminating requirements for A, B, and C above). The Mac OS X is very safe, and if one truly wanted to be secure, they could bar all internet access to/from my app using the built in Firewall.

Besides, I already know what to flip anyhow :P

You could potentially include the images with your software. It's 8.30 MB, but it would require a 1 time installation (and you'd have to update it when new items are added). It wouldn't require loading a long HTML file each time you search for an image, though.

Possibly, but then I might get into legal issues with Jagex (as I would be redistributing their property).

Considering that they made every single image available just so the fansites etc could use them, I don't think that would be a problem :P

Interesting. I will definitely look into it and consider it (but I also need to browse the HTML data for item IDs).

It's not a top priority at the moment though. I'm more focused on gearing up for release (and deciding/figuring out how to release it in the first place).

I think you answered the question with your own response.

I'm here to play a fantasy game, not stockmarkets. Making money is a bi-product of my game, not the focus of it. Be honest with yourself- you probably came to RS to play the game for the same reasons I do now but now you've shifted focus. if it ever gets to that stage for me I'll quit and play something else.

You're right. But you also have to consider two possibilities:

A) Having money in this game can get you quite far, quite fast. Many skills can be made less tedious and less the amount of time to accomplish a goal. In fact, almost every skill, if not every skill, requires some amount of money/wealth in some way. Those that have more of it are at an advantage.

B) You also have to consider the fact that I honestly believe there are people, like me, who genuinely enjoy flipping (or as you call it, a stock market experience).

Now, of course, if you prefer not to flip, that's absolutely fine. One does not have to flip and it's merely an option. By all means, continue to play the game in a way that you most enjoy (with the exception that you don't violate any rules and make another player's experience worse). :)

On the most part we are very much agreed :) . I would disagree on one thing - A lack of money/wealth does not put a player at a disavantage. That could be looked on as an opportunity. Not everyone treats skilling as a sprint. For me its a brisk walk - I'll get there when I get there.

Good luck with what you're doing though and thanks for the honesty :thumbsup:

Does it actually buy and sell the items for you? If so; isn't that considered botting?
