Quick update about the recent PayPal addition. You will now receive the correct amount of Bonus Points for donating for the different packages. For those who did not receive their bonus points, they have now been added manually. You can receive them by logging in and typing ::redeem.
Also, I have added a separate Bonus Points system to ZayPay donating, from now on you will receive 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 bonus tickets depending on the package you select on ZayPay.
More to come soon.
Have a great week!

I have introduced a new payment method for Donating to ForeverPkers, which is PayPal. If you wish to donate with PayPal, you can use this link: http://foreverpkers.net/paypal/
The Membership packages are not quite set up yet (The few extra tickets you receive) but they will be very soon.
How long should it take after donating to receive my points?
They should appear instantly after the payment has gone through.
I have also worked on a new voting system which I will be implementing soon, it will have a different setup and a few different reward types.

Server OnlineJust a reminder that the server is back online. Sorry that took so long, it was out of my control.
Be sure to check out the new source that may replace the current ForeverPkers, if you haven't. We need all the feedback we can get to get this server back to being as good as the original is. Check out the update below for download links.
Have a great day.

The server has went down due to the payment being late (I didn't realize it was due) I apologize for the inconvenience. The server will be up as soon as the host checks my payment and puts it back online.
I do have some good news, I have got the "new source" up and running for testing. I know it is a little laggy for people in the US right now, but I will be upgrading the upload speed which should hopefully fix the lag.
Note: The exp rate is extremely high. This is for testing. All progress will be lost. Once the community has decided whether they want this source to be the new source or not, we will be running only 1 server. Until then, both servers will remain online and playable. For now, I need help finding bugs with the new source so I can fix them before release.
Reasons you should vote for the new server:
-10x more stability (no crashes, meaning no downtime)
-Can hold 10x more players (up to 1,000 rather than only 100)
-10x more content (newer RuneScape content: More items, Summoning skill, Curses)
-New client (Fullscreen, music, quickprayers, etc.)
-Larger player-base (More people prefer this era of RuneScape, I know 317 is awesome, but it's time to move on)
-No food glitch (No more "I ate!!")
-Donator Rank is not yet added for Donators
-Donator Shop is not yet added
-Vote points are given back, but only 1% of them. This is because we will be using a new system where you can only get 1 Vote Point per day from voting.
-Kills/Deaths/PK Points are returned, but adjusted to the rates of the new source (You earn less PKP)
-Not all shops are final (they are always subject to change, feel free to suggest on the forums)
-Your password is the password you have on ForeverPkers after you used ::changepassword. If you did NOT use ::changepassword, you will have an old password. Once the original server is back online, I will make the ::changepassword command also change your password to the new server.
-I may be missing a few things that I can't remember at the moment
Hope to see some of you here! Download links are below.
.jar Client: here
Normal Client: here
Have a great weekend.

|Hello everyone, I have added a rather small update to fix a few things, however I realize a few things are not working right now, such as Dragonfire shield special attack, but I will be fixing them soon.|
New Bosses: Dagannoth Kings
Solo Difficulty: Very hard
Team of 3 Difficulty: Difficulty: Medium
Access these by opening the boss menu
They can only be damaged by certain attacks, bring melee, range and mage if you want to kill all 3. You can lure Dagannoth rex to one side to fight away from the others if you wish.
Drops: Fremennik helm, Fremennik shield, Fremennik blade, Heroic boots, Heroic amulet, dragon defender, amulet of ranging, other misc. items.
Boss loot changes:
Dagannoth mother now drops Hand cannon at a little lower rate than Spirit shields
All Wilderness bosses including KBD now drop Purple keys at a decent rate. Reminder: these can be used in Falador.
Dagannoth Mother now does less damage and might attack with melee
Fixed bank in wilderness
Fixed buy food in wilderness
Removed 1st week bonus drop rate
I will be looking for suggestions for more drops for the bosses, let me know if you have ideas.
Have a nice week!

|Hello everyone, a few updates for you today.|
-Black Knight Titan
The Black Knight Titan is a new low-level boss that has been added under the ::boss menu. Find the Titan by running through the dungeon without entering the Obstacle Pipe. The main purpose of this boss is to help new players get started making money if they are into bossing. It is good for new players for a few reasons. Drop rates are quite high, it's not very strong, and most importantly, it's not in a wilderness area.
Drops: Dragon claws (very rare), Bandos chestplate (rare), Bandos tassets (rare), Saradomin sword (rare), Dark bow, Dragon arrows
This boss has been tweaked slightly to make it easier to kill, including lowering the hitpoints, defense, and accuracy. Along with this, the drop rates have been slightly improved, including the Korasi drop rate being increased by 25%.
-King Black Dragon
This boss should be a bit harder to fight now, considering it can now hit you while you are fighting it from a distance. Because of this, all of its drop rates have been increased by about 20%.
The mole now only has 2 spawn points, East of Mage bank and North of Falador. Due to this, the rate it is now spawned has been increased from 15 minutes, to 30 minutes. Drop rates remain the same: awesome.
Zombie Champion has been buffed a bit to keep it as the toughest boss in the game. However, it will be changed once again pretty soon to make it less difficult. However, its drop rates have been increased slightly.
After voting, you can relog into your account to receive an additional vote reward if you earned at least 30 Vote points. This reward currently ranges from Whips to Dragon claws. It is still subject to change, I just wanted to start it out by only giving some decent items, in case somehow the rewards given are too high.
Some prices in the Donator Shop have been adjusted to make more sense. For example, Dragon claws are now 5 tickets instead of 20. Vesta's longsword has been re-added into the shop.
Using potions on noted potions will no longer grant you a potion of that type.
I am aware of a few more bugs that are in the server currently, and will be fixing them soon.
If you have any comments or suggestions about these updates, please post them here.
Thanks, have a great weekend.

I would like to apologize for the recent server downtime, apparently something has corrupted the VPS that the server is hosted on (or something of the sort) causing the server to constantly crash nearly every day.. I am not sure of the cause at the moment, but I am sure it is nothing to do with the server source itself. So within the next few days I will be working on transferring it to a new host, which will hopefully fix the problem altogether, also will reduce some of the lag (if there is any).

I apologize for the downtime and the wait for the update. I am still working on it, and it will be applied soon!
Thanks, have a great weekend.
|Update by James on Friday June 13, 2014 7:00 AM CEST|
I noticed some people are saying the server is "Still offline" on the forums. One possibility is that you didn't re-open the client (I had the same issue at the beginning, once I re-opened the client it let me login once again). So if you are still having problems logging in after restarting your client, you may be IP banned from the game. If that is the case please make an appeal on the forums saying why you were IP banned and I will look into that for you.

Hello everyone, tonight the server will be offline for an hour or two while I am downgrading to a Virtual Server.
Why am I downgrading? There are 2 reasons.
1. The price difference. I cannot pay $200+/month anymore for the server as we do not have enough players to help pay for the cost.
2. If I start working on the new source again, it will run very smoothly even on a cheaper server. The current source is very old and takes a lot of power to run. I do plan on finishing the "new source" however I have to invest A LOT of time to complete it, which is the main issue. Obviously I have not had the time to work on anything server related due to the fact that I've only been working on recoveries so everyone can have their account back.
On the bright side, over 90% of the accounts have been recovered. There are still 100 left and I am planning on finishing those today, if you still have not received your account just wait a while.
What does this mean?
More updates! I understand it has been a while since I've done an update, somewhat due to the hacking, however I am going to begin working on some nice updates to improve the current source for a while so I can have the time to also work on the newer version, which is significantly better than the current one.
Although I can come up with some decent ideas from time to time, I am not the best at coming up with cool features to add to the server. If you have any ideas that you think could improve ForeverPkers in any way, please post them here. I try to read the suggestions forum very often.
If you have any further concerns regarding your account, or anything else feel free to message me on the forums or my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great day.
