TRiBot Support

Errors on Mac OSX

TRiBot not showing up after logging in?

Receiving a "Java null" error?

Scripts not loading?

Any other issue using TRiBot on your mac?


Fix #1

First thing you need to do is verify the latest version of Java is running on your Mac (available for download here).
To see what version you're currently running,

  • Click on the  at the top left of your screen
  • Click "System Preferences..."
  • Click on the "Java" option at the bottom and the Java Control Panel should open in a separate window
  • In the General tab, click on the "About..." option.
  • Verify this is the most recent version available from the download link up top.

Fix #2

Next, you need to verify you have the correct .jdk, or Java Development Kit. Before starting your TRiBot client, you tell it which jdk to reference, as seen here

Many, if not most, issues with the client on Macs are due to the jdk being outdated. To download the latest, go here, accept the License Agreement, and download the OS X version.
The file downloaded will be a .dmg file. Open it up and you'll be able to install it (only with Administrator privileges, of course).
To see what versions you have installed on your Mac,

  • Click on the Spotlight search option in the top-right (or just type cmd+spacebar) and search for "Finder."
  • Once in the Finder window, click on the "Go" option in the very top bar.
  • Click "Go To Folder..." and type this in, then click Go: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines
  • You should see the available options to choose when starting your TRiBot client.
  • Verify the latest jdk is present, should see something like this:

Most common issues with loading the client should be resolved if you've verified both are up to date.
If you're curious, here's a post I found that helps explain the difference between the two and why these steps are necessary:

"The JRE" is, as the name implies, an environment. It's basically a bunch of directories with Java-related files, to wit:

  • /bin with executable programs like java and (for Windows) javaw, which are essentially the program that is the Java virtual machine;
  • /lib with a large number of supporting files: Some jars, configuration files, property files, fonts, sounds, icons... all the "trimmings" of Java. Most important are rt.jar and a possibly a few of its siblings, which contain the "java API," i.e. the Java library code.
  • Somewhere, possibly squirreled away by the installer to some directory specified by the operating system, are some .DLLs (for Windows) or .so's (Unix/Linux) with supporting, often system-specific native binary code.

The JDK is also a set of directories. It looks a lot like the JRE but it contains a directory (called JRE) with a complete JRE, and it has a number of development tools, most importantly the Java compiler javac in its bin directory.

Fix #3 
If none of the above work, another thing you can try that has been found to solve some issues is deleting your tribot folder, tribot loader, restarting, and redownloading:

If you've used TRiBot on your mac, your tribot folder will be here:
1. Click on Finder

  Hide contents


2. In the menu bar, click "Go," then choose the "Go To Folder..." option

  Hide contents


3. Paste this into the box changing "YOUR MAC USERNAME" to whatever is in your upper right corner. USE LOWERCASE LETTERS.

  • /Users/"YOUR MAC USERNAME"/Library/Application Support/
  Hide contents


4. Delete the tribot folder, then delete your TRiBot_Loader.jar file used to start TRiBot.

5. Restart your mac and redownload the file from
