I was just wandering, because I have searched for a while now and haven't had any luck yet. Runescape uses Java and when I go to the site to play the game, it says I must download Java. I already have Java, so if anyone has any information it is much appreciated!

As you notice the issue is that Java is running the game, and therefor Java is opening the ports. At this point it's now more of a challenge of getting Java to run over Tor. Usually I would make something like this to replace the default java binary:

torify java.exe $0

Which would then run Java over Tor in replacement of the default Java. However, this runs as an Applet/JNI (browser plugin) and is therefor probably linking directly to a shared library, which makes it more complicated to hook into.

If you can get Runescape as a standalone EXE or Jar, you can do the torify trick I showed earlier. The $0 won't work on Windows though so you can probably just remove that (adds all arguments)
