FAQ

Q: DLC for a game I don't own is not being filtered.
A: The DLC list is manually maintained by me. It's updated roughly every week. If DLC is missing or needs fixed please submit an issue report for DLC. and I'll fix it for the next DLC database update.

Q: I have IE, please make a version for me.
A: Please update to a modern browser that supports addons. IE will never be officially supported.

Q: I keep losing my settings and filters.
A: Please ensure that your cache and cookies are not being deleted when you close your browser. The addon relies on them for saving settings.

Q: Can I import my filters from Zo's Addon into SGE?.
A: Yes! You can import all of your custom filters from Zo's Addon by pressing Import Zo's Addon (SGE) in your giveaway filters control panel.

Q: A topic says it has new comments, but I can't find any.
A: The New Comment count within a thread is per page. There may be new comments on a different page. However due to technical limitations with how new comments are tracked the counter may be incorrect if comments are deleted. You can mark a topic as read by clicking on the # New button on the forum index.

Q: Some of my wishlist games aren't being highlighted?
A: Most often this is an issue caused by a limitation of SteamGifts. SteamGifts only records your top 25 wishlist games. Unless your game is in your wishlist in your sync page then SteamGifts Plus won't know that its in your wishlist.

Q: Why is SteamGifts Plus not on the Google Play Store or Mozillas Add-On Store?
A: Both of these stores would limit the development and features of SteamGifts Plus and in some cases delay updates to SteamGifts Plus by weeks.

Is there a feature to automatically enter giveaways that are on your steam wish list?

Emerald

(1 year ago)

No. And there never will be.

SGP will not support leeching behaviour.

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

*Lazy leeching behavior :P

TheSnake

(1 year ago)

The funny thing is that, since I'm using the add-on, his comments are at the bottom of the page, not the top, so if he meant to hijack, he failed. And if he was just being too lazy to scroll to the bottom, he failed even harder, because my comment box is up top already. He can't even be lazy/annoying properly. Am I the only one who sees the humor here?

wbarton (Support)

Yes

Divertissement

Definetly no. And made an even better argument for me to install it.

will this addon work on the 64bit nightly version of firefox?

greaper1666

(1 year ago)

I only test on the latest stable builds, but if Greasemonkey works on the nightly build then the addon should hopefully work too.

Zos got competition.

I saw Zoo getting more active after a competition showing up :P

TheSnake

Competition is good. Zo's addon was almost completely inactive for ~8 months until SGP was announced last month. Now it's getting some activity back.

2v1 trolling me, no way xD

Note: Congratulations, the script is really neat and gives one option that i was waiting for, the ability to filter giveaways by Contributor (example: range $30 to $200).

The best SteamGifts add-on so far.

InJ3cTiOn

Svarley disagrees with you.

MrCastiglia (1 year ago)

Let's try it Hmm seems to work well

  • I would like to know why it needs permissions to all websites or something like that.

Many thanks! :D

That's an issue with Chrome extensions. All extensions not on the web store will say it, but the addon only will only ever do anything on the steamgifts.com domain.

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

Oki doki!

I was curious about that and as I'm not really into this things I wanted to ask. The short time I've used the addon seems great so far!

MrCastiglia

(1 year ago*)

And why is this extension not on the web store?

franta171

(1 year ago)

It costs money and time and so forth to be on the Chrome Store.

TheDopefish (1 year ago)

this looks amazing =)

You "Saw a Ghost" ... does this add-on come with SG achievements? :3

I was going to ask the same. How do they work?

MrCastiglia

(1 year ago)

Most of the user badges are unlocked from your stats. The Saw a Ghost and Likes to Chat badges are manually added to users by me.

There may be more badges like Saw a Ghost in the future for any future events SteamGifts runs.

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago*)

Oh, I see =)

Wouldn't it be better if you implemented some of your checks with regular expressions, for example if cg ever decides to write "1 year ago" instead of "1 year ago" (with 2 spaces, which by default aren't rendered by most browsers)?

TheDopefish

(1 year ago*)

I should be apprised of most new updates to the site before they go live but I'll definitely be moving things over to expressions when I clean up the code.

Kaitlyn

vcvc8 (1 year ago)

Should be a comment achievement!

Off topic, but big ups for the B Dolan.

ACHIEVEMENTS? OMG!!!!1111!!

But seriously, this is a awesome script :D Also

LIGrenadier (1 year ago)

There's a bug with adding games to the filter list that have quotation marks in the title. For example, Add To Filter does not work for:

Worms Reloaded: The "Pre-order Forts and Hats" DLC Pack

Thanks, it should be fixed in a future update.

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

Fixed in 0.9.1.

Kaitlyn

Cha0sSt0rm (1 year ago*)

EYEGASM. Love the hover-over links to see what it is and the new text box links and the live preview. This add-on is pretty much compulsory as far as I am concerned. Thanks for all the awesome work.

Lol'd so much at the instructions for Internet Explorer - but I think you should clarify install Chrome/FF/Opera before un-installing IE...

bondKI (1 year ago)

Just downloaded it...and I already love that script :D

Tuga (1 year ago)

Great add-on, thank you very much :)

oskaras (1 year ago)

Add this "x% chance to win" to entered games maybe?
And Thanks it is awesome and amazing!!

Done in 0.9.1.

Kaitlyn

Gtur (1 year ago)

YAY IT"S AWESOME ;)

Nelen (1 year ago)

Impressive! Great work.

redzrex (1 year ago)

nice, much faster load than the Sg Enhancement Addon, thanks :DDD

notnsane (1 year ago*)

Looks pretty badass, but I'd rather keep my 20 MB of RAM. Since the new filter feature is active on SG, I stopped using addons here and I'm pretty happy with that.

LIGrenadier (1 year ago)

The Quick View is larger than before, and it seems like it is overflowing the bounds of the browser window. Any way to resize it, or limit it based on window size? I feel like it was designed for a much higher resolution.

BTW, don't get me wrong, I love the script. Just trying to give some feedback on what is still marked as a beta.

LIGrenadier

(1 year ago)

The quick view should always be in the center of your window.

What browser are you using and when does it overflow?

SteamGifts is designed for 1024x768 resolutions minimum. If the quick view is overflow then everything else should be too o__0

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago*)

I see what's happening now. The SteamGifts menu navbar that comes down from the top of the screen is hiding the top part of the Quick View window. It didn't use to do that to me on the old add-on.

LIGrenadier

(1 year ago)

Oh, I'll change it so that the quick view is always on top. That should fix it :D

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

Fixed in 0.9.1.

Kaitlyn

How can i get that "Comment and Enter" button?
Thanks.

noisy43

The button is only available on the quick view.

I laughed so hard when i saw the How To instal on Internet Explorer. XD Anyway THANK YOU! This is so much bether the the Enchanced Addon. I love this, there are so many new and cool features :)!

vcvc8 (1 year ago)

Dammit Kaitlyn, the install for IE was MY JOKE. MINE.

Mwahahahahaha!

Delorian (1 year ago)

Will get as soon as I get home!

emotionengine (1 year ago*)

Thank you Kaitlyn! Much appreciated.

Edit: Browsing SG with this gives me a "My vision is augmented" feel. Awesome.

tragikos (1 year ago)

Thanks a lot Kaitlyn!

Yay ^_^!!!

Brotbaum (1 year ago)

Thanks for the addon

BTW is there a way to automatically jump to the newest post on a thread?

If you're on the page with the newest comment you can click on the X New button to jump to it, and then the arrow buttons on that to jump between other new comments.

Sadly you can't jump to the newest comment from the forum index due to technical limitations with this being an addon.

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

Ah, thanks for the info. Good job with the addon.

Brotbaum

Thomen (1 year ago)

That's great!Thank you! Makes everything easier!

dimon222 (1 year ago)

How can I install Firefox without Internet Explorer? And how the hell to uninstall Internet Explorer?

And yes. Why max contribution is locked to 2000$?

dimon222

(1 year ago)

Because the max contribution value that can be set on a giveaway is $2000.00 :P

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

Hmm?

//It says 2k$ after clicking Create. Liars ;_;

dimon222

(1 year ago*)

You should have installed Firefox (or another browser) as soon as you installed Windows ;)

How to disable IE: Got to Control Panel > Programs > Turn Windows features on and off > uncheck Internet Explorer (only do that if you are sure)

Brotbaum

(1 year ago*)

<_<

Use... uhm... netscape?

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

Lorkhan (Support)

(1 year ago)

Without Internet Explorer?
Just Press Start+R and type iexplore. There should be at least IE6 on every Windows PC, I belive. :D

arnab21 (1 year ago)

thanks :D add leecher badge too :D I suppose I'm one :D

noisy43 (1 year ago)

Great addon. I would like option to hide that Giveaways box on Homepage. Thx.

Prox7 (1 year ago)

Looks Awesome Thanks!

Kappei (1 year ago)

<3

Awesome addon! Thanks Kait :)

Is there a list of the badges or are you keeping it hidden where nobody can find it?

I have all the badges on my profile.

I'll add a list to view all the badges in a later version though!

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

It's lacking the 6th achievement. Please, add something or I won't be able to sleep :< Have mercy!

ariadourden

(1 year ago)

Maybe ideas for badges - unlucky (too much entries and no wins), ninja (some wins with short time from entry to win). greedy (mamy wins), bot (enormous amount of entries)

dimon222

(1 year ago)

"ninja" would require to parse every entered giveaway, the others should not be too hard to implement, since all this info is already available on the profile page.

TheDopefish

(1 year ago)

Yes, its true. But you have to parse only giveaways where you won. And for avoiding scanning each loading of page - make Sync button.

// And looks like its required to do that for each user manually. Damn.

dimon222

(1 year ago*)

There are currently 6 badges in the code:

1) Been a member for 1 year.
2) Gifted $500 in giveaways.
3) Win 25 giveaways.
Note: 4) - 6) are handled manually by Kaitlyn:
4) Actively participates in S.Gifts group chat.
5) Recognition for contributing to SteamGifts.
6) Commented on the 2012 Halloween hidden giveaway.

TheDopefish

5 has been removed but still exists in case I decide to re-add it later.

Kaitlyn

than i`m bot ho ho

kabooom

ThisIsDan (1 year ago)

Ummm, i'm not trying to be rude or something, but couldn't you add all those features to the site itself instead of creating this add-on?

I have nothing to do with development of the site. I'm just a moderator.

Kaitlyn

(1 year ago)

How about suggesting this to cg then?

ThisIsDan

(1 year ago)

It eats very much resources. I guess no.

dimon222

(1 year ago)

It could save resources, depends on what you implement, and how.

Regnareb

(1 year ago)

Actually it would take almost no additional resources at all. The Steam Gifts servers would have to host SG+'s source code, but it's just a little file (281 KB, and could be even smaller if it were minified) that wouldn't be any real burden on the SG servers.

However, that doesn't mean there are no problems with cg implementing SG+ globally. Even if SG+ were added by cg, it would still store all of its data in cookies. This means that, while all the other configurable settings on Steam Gifts are synced between any device you log into the site with, the settings from SG+ would not be synced, which would be highly confusing and discourageable. The only way to fix this issue would be to undergo the rather large task of porting much of SG+'s code from JS to PHP, and even then it would require a lot more storage space to contain the site's databases, and basically it would just be a mess.

A slightly more realistic option would be for cg to borrow features from SG+ and gradually add them as he pleases, but this would still be difficult and, for pretty much all of SG+'s features, the database concerns I mentioned earlier would still be a problem.
