I have been trying to create my own private server with the goal of having the ability to play around with one on my free time. I dont intend to release it, and kind just want a virtual playground if you will.
I have followed the instructions on the wikihow "How to Make a Private RuneScape Server". So far I have encountered some odd problems that I hope any of you could help me out with.
I have 2 systems I have attempted to run this one btw. One has Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on a desktop. The other has Windows 10 Home 64 bit on a laptop (this one is my main one).
I have downloaded the JDK, which I suspect something might be amiss there, but then again I am far from an expert on these things. I have also downloaded the starter pack indicated from the wiki (which is from like 2012 or so, kind of old in the grand scheme of things).
When I try to run or compile any of the batch files, I get the following error:
"Error: Opening registry key 'software\JavaSoft\Java Runetime Enviroment'
Error: could not find java.dll
Error: Could not find Java SE Runtime Enviroment.
Press any key to continue . . ."
I have tried to reinstall the JDK and it has yielded the same result. This is happening with both of my systems.
Also curiously, there are some java games on my desktop that before the JDK was installed would not open at all. I would click on the Java icon and see the blue wheel for a few seconds, then nothing. When the JDK is installed in will run the programs, but when ever any of these games prompts to have anything named such as a character, file name, ect, it crashes.
I do not have access to the internet very often, so my approach to solve this is to sort of shotgun it if you will. What I am planning to do is find other links on instructions to create a RSPS, including youtube videos in case I missed something. If there is anything else you need to know to help me resolve this, please ask.
Also while I am at it, I am looking primarily for a source that is like old school Runescape (2006 era). If I can at least get something up and running, I am going to post another topic to find one. Thank you for any help.
1/7/18: Update: So I was able to get the client window open by editing the batch files to the correct destination, but the client is not able to connect. I will be experimenting with Eclipse as some of the tutorials use it.
