Today I have managed to get back in contact with JetBrains to speak about an old Open Source Licence I had almost a decade ago, After a bit of back and forth with the company I have managed to yet again gain control of the licence. A Licence like this usually costs arround £499 - for Rune-Status.net, Free.

What does this mean?
This means that as a community, we have access to ALL Premium JetBrains Software for development, this includes the following peices of Software:
And the Licence will at the moment be active for a year today (Expires: 02 May 2018).

Under the Licencing Terms, I cannot just go about pasting any Licence Key anywhere, however I am able to send you an invitation to the Community's softwares.

If you would like to receive a free Licence:
Send a message to me with your e-mail address via the Website or via Discord. And asoon as I can I will reply with your Rune-Status Community Licence. Licences can only be used once and you Do need to be registered on the JetBrains website to activate the Licence.

Thanks for reading - Happy Development!

RuneLite
[​IMG]
RuneLite is a exciting project that has made waves since its first release in May 2016, It is an open-souce collabarative project to reverse engineer the RuneScape 2 (OSRS) game Client. Headed by a small group of developers lead by a good guy known only to myself as @Adam. It has come a long way in terms of visible progress in terms of Github.

With just a love of the game and a love for Free and Open-Source projects and a nack for Reverse Engineering Java software, Adam decided to start the project and see what he could find out about the game he much loved. At the minute the Client is highly renamed as "a side-effect" according to Adam as there was no intention to just set out to rename the Client as much other projects do such as chadalen/138-client-refactored though projects like chadalen's help our community progress further by enabling us to create more and more projects which stem away from the original rev.317 protocol servers and clients, Projects like RuneLite are an education open to all, as there is a community arround it which are open to helping and teaching what they know and have learned themselves.

Not to shy away from chadalen's brilliant work in the RSPS feild which IMO goes unappreciated on many a level, the RuneLite team look at their projects in a whole new light. When I asked Adam about any breakthroughs in the project he gave me statement which changes the game completely.

He told me:

Hey Guys,
So after much hard work and deliberation we have now finally unleashed our Discord Integration upon you all, by this we mean that our Site and Discord will now be symbiotic, providing a much needed mutually beneficial relationship between the two.

Incoming with this update we have made some slight changes to the website to accomodate the changes, firstly and most evident is the lack of the Forums Shoutbox - this has been alltogether scrapped in a delightful exchange for Discord channels, anything with a #hastag infront of it is for Text Chat. And ofcause there are the available Voice Chat channels for each topical category of the site - and including a Music channel for those of you who would like to play music.

We have so far got 3 Bots at our disposal, more may be added in future depending on needs. The 3 we have cover pretty much everything we would come to expect on a RSPS based discord channel, these are:
  • Andy
    • Andyroid - The Rune-Status.net Bot, feeding information back and forth to and from Discord and the Forums, Keeping everybody upto date with the latest news and sorting Users into appopriate placements in an ill-autonomously automatic fashion.
  • DJ Bot
    • The DJ Bot (@ErisBot) lets you play music thorugh Voice Channels amongst other things you can do some research on the commands available to users or type .help in any Text Channel.
  • RS Bot
    • The RS Bot (@RuneInfo) is a great tool for anything relating to RuneScape the game, this bot will give you information on pretty much anything that is available to find online from Official RS and Wiki's for both OSRS and RS3, you can type !help for more information on what else this Bot can do for you.
Naturally we have assigned a #Channel for anything...

Hey guys,
Just a quick update to let members know that we are now accepting Advertising for RSPS Projects,
For now it will be for only RSPS Projects as we hope to gain more traction in the advertising of peoples projects to help promote Servers and Clients to new players.

We currently offer only 3 different packages;
  1. Header banner Advertisements,
  2. Footer banner Advertisements and
  3. Sticky thread Advertisements.

Though as time goes on an the site becomes of age we will be adding more options to the roster including Featured Resourses for those who use the Resources section to sell products and services. Although we want you to be able to advertise your server and/or projects to the other members on the site with ease we also don't want to bombard new users with a spamming of advertisements as other sites currently do which becomes unappealing and horrid.

It's been a long time coming finalizing the feature as we have had a sure amount of bugs to crack down on and also with limited time on our hands through out the working day and proactivity slowly fading due to slow growth we are going to give the first TEN people to read this thread the oppertunity to have a MONTH OF FREE ADVERTISING on us.

100FIRSTTEN
Note: This promotional offer is 100% off a months advertising for any of the packages available and will be valid to ten people at one advertisement each.

If there is anything you think we could do better please just use the forums or the discord to let us know and we will get right on to it - its essential to us that you find the forums useful and feel entised enough to become a bigger part of the community. Shout out to those of you who have supported us from day one.

Please remember that Advertisements are vetted before they go live.
Thanks for reading!
- Ian.

Project Manager

The New Rune-Status projects feature.
The Project Manager feature added for the community to use is available to anybody and everyone, It allows multiple people to be involved in one project and give interested members a place to not only Discuss the Project at hand but also view the progress of the development.

The Project Manager system involves members working together to acheive the end-goal. The member who starts the project - the Project Leader (and Co-Leader) has more power over the project than typical users involved in the project, by means of the ability to add more users to the project.
Note: When you add a user to a project you will not be able to remove them again. You have been warned: Only a Staff Member can amend users on a Project.

When a member has been added to any project they will be notified via the Alert system as shown below for an example:

Thanks to Melissa for this image.​

Now as you can see from the Example thread, you are fully able to use the WYSIWYG Editor to make a Thread-like Project Description. What this will do is automatically create a Thread in the Projects forum in the correct place.

The most asute of you will have noticed the Tabbing above the postbit of the Example thread - This allows you to move from the discussion of the Project at hand to the intricacies by means of Tasks which have been set and also the completion percentage:

Any member can view Projects and all associated, this means they can see the Projects Description/Discussion, Tasks on the Timeline and Members involved in the Project. This may take some time to get used to using and may be a...

Generic Syntax Highlighting
Hey guys,
I have finally finished adding support for a wider range of [CODE] syntax highlighting via the CODE BBCode. You will now be able to use the CODE BBCode to make your code more 'pretty', this is a welcome update from the standard Text CODE, HTML or PHP BBCodes. Although I have encountered issues adding the extra formatting options to the menu itself you will still be able to use the new feature by using the following format:

[code=java] /*CODE HERE*/[/code]

Code (Java):
  1.  /*CODE HERE*/
Here are some examples of the new System:

C++
Code (C):
  1.  
  2. //ForStatistics.cc
  3. //Computes the sample mean and variance of N numbers input at the keyboard.
  4. //N is specified by the user but must be 10 or fewer in this example.
  5.  
  6. #include <iostream>
  7. using namespace std;
  8.  
  9. int main()
  10. {
  11.   int    N=0;
  12.    float  number, sum=0.0, sumSquares=0.0;
  13.    float  mean, variance;
  14.  
  15.    while(N<1 || N>10)
  16.    {
  17.       cout << "Number of entries (1-10) = ";
  18.       cin  >>   N;
  19.    }
  20.  
  21.    for(int i=1; i<=N; i++ )
  22.    {
  23.        cout << "Input item number " << i << " = ";
  24.        cin >> number;
  25.        sum = sum + number;
  26.        sumSquares = sumSquares + number*number;
  27.    }
  28.  
  29.    mean = sum/N;
  30.    variance = sumSquares/N - mean*mean;
  31.  
  32.    cout << "The mean of the data is " << mean <<
  33.           " and the variance is " << variance << endl;
  34.  
  35.    return 0;
  36. }
  37.  
Java
Code (Java):
  1.  
  2. /*
  3.  * A simple example of using for loops to calculate factorial.
  4.  * Uses the built in int data type so only good to 13!
  5.  */
  6. public class Factorial
  7. {

Hey guys!

The time has almost come to wave goodbye to the year 2016 and welcome in the new year and all it will have to offer us. We have alot to come for 2017 with the community as a whole, we have begun developments to make things for everything RSPS so Rune-Status will become the hub for developers and player alike.

To kickstart the year with a bang - one lucky member can win a 1 Year's Free VPS which they can host their Private Server on, Create and Run a Website, Bot RuneScape or whatever you can think of yourself!

Not only that but DCT Host will also provide 1 Month's Free Webhosting so you can kick-start 2017 in the most effective ways!

I will run a simple 'Pick-a-number' scheme to choose the winner and the winning number will be selected from RANDOM.ORG - True Random Number Service using their Random Number Generator. Numbers ranging from 1-125 anything higher or lower will be omitted.

The number will be drawn on the 1st of January 2017.

Rules of the competition:
  • You may only post once.
  • You may only choose one number.
  • You may work in a team - get your team members to join and post a number.
    • Only one member will receive the VPS.
  • You must have a Post Count above atleast 5.
Good Luck and have an Amazing New Year!
- Ian & Harry
