    So I just started learning how to script this week. Currently working on a simple cow killer. Heres what i got so far

        xpGained = currentXp - beginningXP;
        timeRan = System.currentTimeMillis() - this.timeBegan;
        g.drawString("Strenght xp gained: " + xpGained, 1, 40);
        g.drawString("RunTime: " + ft(timeRan), 1, 15);
        //timer stuff
        private String ft(long duration)
                String res = "";
                long days = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toDays(duration);
                long hours = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toHours(duration)
                - TimeUnit.DAYS.toHours(TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toDays(duration));
                long minutes = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toMinutes(duration)

                if (days == 0) {
                res = (hours + ":" + minutes + ":" + seconds);
                } else {
                res = (days + ":" + hours + ":" + minutes + ":" + seconds);
                return res;

    Before I get going and really into this, how am I doing so far?


    Good start?

    What should be done differently?

    How should i go about my goals or solve my problems?


    all my java knowledge is self taught.






    Implement a more unique antiban.

    Make a GUI with location selection (including random location on death), weapon input, combat style, and looting cowhides or not.

    Better paint (lowest priority).


    Current problems:


    Started using eclipse window builder for the GUI. Use things like a check box, if its selected set a boolean like lootcowhides to true. however, don't know how to access that variable from my main class to check if its true or not.


    Sometimes on the deathwalk it'll stop randomly in lumbridge castle.

    You guys rock! thank you both, got my GUI up and working correctly in no time.



    Not quoting the post since it is very long and I am fairly busy at the moment, but I've read that you do not know how to access the data from the GUI, I can explain that with a pretty rough example but I hope it will help you to understand.

    public class Main extends AbstractScript {
        private boolean isLoot;
        public void onStart() {
            GUIClassName gui = new GUIClassName("Example");
            isLoot = gui.isLoot();
        public int onLoop() {
            return 0;
        private class GUIClassName extends JFrame {
            private JCheckBox isLoot;
            GUIClassName(String title) {
                add(isLoot = new JCheckBox("Loot hides"));
                //TODO other fancy ui code
            boolean isLoot() {
                return isLoot.isSelected();



    Hey, be sure to check this thread https://dreambot.org/forums/index.php/topic/8530-scripting-101/. It has instructions on how to create guis and paints for example. Because of your post looks like this for me, I wont comment on that :P (hard to read it).



    Weird that it came up like that O_o. Thanks for your time!
