Only a steam user will understand, when you sell all your cards and some of your favorites skins to buy a new game that you really want, but when you get the money, the sale ended 5 minutes ago

I sold my rarest steam profile and with just that sell I was able to purchase A plague tale, I'm both happy and sad atm, also my friends that don't use Steam looks me really weird when I told them I also purchased GTA V by just selling a ton of cards

Basically replace image links. You can use any .jpg link. (I personally created Imgur links for example. It should be a direct link tho (.jpg in the end))

Be careful about commas (,) and quotes (") btw. They are essential.

Sounds like if you only ever log into Steam on one pc you could even use local images from your hard drive.

Hmm. Do you know if there's a way to have it select from all the images inside a folder on your pc (in other words, use the whole folder without having to put individual images)?

If so then saving any images you wanted into the folder would make it really easy to add/remove images without having to update the script every time.

Probably there is a way but i personally don't know how to do it.

Folder might be tricky since extension needs a permission to reach your folders, but another alternative would be an Imgur Album. Still, that probably requires some API things, which i don't know about :/

(That is not that hard as well tho, i personally added/removed things only 2-3 times in months.)

As far as I know, javascript doesn't have access to directories on client side unless you use something like "drag and drop" which would be ridiculous, so it's impossible to create an script that could do that automatically

i'm not so mad about the fact that is f2p now, just the cons with that, more cheaters, more monetization, before for every operation you could pay a little of money for crates and skins etc, and even get your money back if you were lucky, now the last one it was damn expensive and not worth it

I know, but I'm not here for the philosophy part if the tool makes the bad thing or the wielder. (obviously the second)
Also, SAM is a tool to tinker with stuff you're not supposed to tinker with, ofc it will raise suspicion.

I'm just telling that if there's a guy who knows how to break in to a car, the knowledge itself is not problematic. But if they demostrate before a good few people that yeah, they can actually do that... they will have fun explaining that any break-ins in the future is definitely not their doings.
(This is why achievement-hunter groups forbid unlocking knowingly broken achievements, because that proves that they are using tools they shouldn't, and at that point anything and everything can be a product of it)

As for me, just keep on doing what you feel good. At least not like some players who proudly display 95%+ achievement completions while obviously unlocking everything at the same time with SAM :D

I definitely know that all too well. I'm in two different achievement hunter groups, so I know better than to abuse the power of such tools.

Where SAM is actually super helpful is if you're a developer. If you want to Steamify your game, you need to be able to test your achievement code, remove those achievements, make fixes, and then test to see if they will pop properly afterward. SAM allows devs to do that. It's really quite handy.

This is a fallacious argument. A locksmith doesn't have to explain anything. Just because some/many people will abuse the power doesn't mean everyone will. Same reason not every gun owner is a killer. Like grez1 said: just because a tool can be abused doesn't make it bad.

This is why achievement-hunter groups forbid unlocking knowingly broken achievements, because that proves that they are using tools they shouldn't, and at that point anything and everything can be a product of it

Again faulty reasoning, if they only unlock broken achievements which they would have gotten otherwise they've done nothing wrong. The tools aren't inherently "wrong" just because a large amount of people misuse them. Just because someone knows how to use a gun, doesn't make them a killer.

Most things in this world aren't black & white. I mostly see comments about SAM being "evil" from casual achievement hunters, who only get the easily gotten achievements. So for them it doesn't matter much if broken achievements lower their 60/70% Avg. Game Completion Rate since they never get to a number that means anything relevant, just another achievement they haven't gotten. If your Avg. Game Completion Rate is 95%+ and it's lowered because of things that are completely out of your control, then it starts to matter.

And it makes sense for those casual achievement hunters to just label most people with 95%+ Avg. Game Completion Rate as "cheaters", since it makes them feel better about themselves. Surely they cheated, it's not that I'm unable or unwilling to get that hard achievement.

In conclusion: Achievements don't really matter, I think everyone knows that. I've spend far too much time getting them myself, and I've never used SAM for anything but broken achievements which I would have normally gotten or (no longer) unobtainable achievements. I'm aware that most people would think I'm a cheater and that's fine with me, because I know that I'm not and I do achievements for myself not for others.

You skipped the very first sentence just to leave a rant. I know quarantine is boring, but watch a movie or something. Pornhub is free as well, I'm sure you can get better use of your fingers than typing another comment like yours.

A locksmith doesn't have to explain anything [...]

That's wildly idealistic and ignoring how people and their thoughts work. Also I said nothing about locksmiths, you're cherrypicking the more or less single professional who's 100% okay to know how to break a lock. How about a friendly drug addict who recently picked on picking locks and breaking into cars?
People do judge and even lingering thoughts can affect people's view about individuals

Again faulty reasoning, if they only unlock broken achievements which they would have gotten otherwise they've done nothing wrong. The tools aren't inherently "wrong" just because a large amount of people misuse them. Just because someone knows how to use a gun, doesn't make them a killer.

Wat? You're basically saying that it's okay to unlock every Telltale interactive game's achievement because technically I can get them? Or any other game's because "all it needs is grinding" so why not get it in the first hour?
Also, have you really read ANY achievement site's rules, that you're so confidently say that only "casual achievement hunters" frown on it?
FYI: https://astats.astats.nl/astats/Guidelines.php

+A: I should have earned an achievement but the game didn’t grant it to me, may I unlock it with an achievement unlocker?
Q: No, any tampering with your achievements via third-party tools is going to result in a ban.

You're trying to invalidate what I said about achievement-hunter groups' treatment of SAM by saying that achievements are meaningless and tools are nice according to you. I'm sure that's some fallacy as well or just being disorganized.

Get some rest or something. You're throwing inaccuracies into a finished discussion that didn't really matter neither for us.

You say you don't care about the philosophy of the argument and then go on about how using SAM is bad. Why should I take it into account when you don't even listen to yourself? I'm as free to voice my opinion as are you, I don't tell you how to spend your time.

That's wildly idealistic and ignoring how people and their thoughts work.

My example shows how your reasoning is false and things aren't black and white. Your example is stereotyping addicts, and only serves to prove what you already belief. I never said no one breaks into cars. Also "bias" exist really? Never knew that :D Just because a lot of morons share an opinion doesn't make them right.

Wat? You're basically saying that it's okay to unlock every Telltale interactive game's achievement because technically I can get them? Or any other game's because "all it needs is grinding" so why not get it in the first hour?

That's not what I'm saying at all. I said:

if they only unlock broken achievements which they would have gotten

That means achievement they would have gotten if they weren't broken. I'm not sure how I can put this more clearly to be honest.

Also, have you really read ANY achievement site's rules

The creators of AStats are only a hand of people, I don't see how they represent a majority of anything. Unless their rules were established democratically; and in the point you're trying to make, the majority of them would have to be 95+%ers, which I highly doubt. I personally think they're a bunch of morons but that's beside the question, I can understand why they put that rule. It's because there are people who will use it to cheat and they're unable or unwilling to check every single person individually so it's easier to ban the use of the tool.

You're trying to invalidate what I said about achievement-hunter groups' treatment of SAM

I never said anything about achievement groups, you're the one bringing them up all of the sudden. I was talking about people with 95%+ Avg. Game Completion Rate. They're not the same.

achievements are meaningless and tools are nice according to you. I'm sure that's some fallacy as well or just being disorganized.

Yes that is indeed my opinion, I never stated otherwise. You state it's a fallacy but provide no counterpoint. Also ad hominem attacks are really poor form.

You quoted me on that for fuck's sake, claiming that it's factually wrong in this comment of yours

I don't know why you want to argue so, SO hard. Again, to quote my first sentence from both of the comments you're replying:

I know, but I'm not here for the philosophy part if the tool makes the bad thing or the wielder. (obviously the second)

I clearly stated that yes, the person is at fault, not the tool (You threw that statement two times at me like you invented the wheel again).
Then I continued about the groups that don't like using SAM to paint a better picture of the online communities, that may or may not share my (previously clearly stated) thoughts.
If people are talking in good faith, that's called information. And grez1 took it as such. And now look at yourself.
By your applied logic if I say "I don't follow any religion but X will seriously despise you for doing Y" means I'm in a philosophical argument and I stated that I agree with them.

This is a mockery of a discussion on your part, and I won't take part in it in the future. You're better than this.

I did with broken achievements some years ago, a site like astats.nl will definitely catch and mark you, some members make it a sport to catch people, they will give you one chance to redeem yourself, but you need to lock everything, and since so many time passed by for me i simply locked everything (even so many legit things).
I'd not recommend it anymore and just deal with the broken ones.

Yeah, I'm not even on astats.nl or any of those other sites. I don't particularly care if somebody thinks I "cheated" or not. But I fear that if I start going down the SAM road, I might use it for other reasons than the truly broken achievements. Like I have a case where there was an achievement for getting all the other achievements, but it didn't pop because I got the last achievement on a new game profile (because the other one got corrupted). Should I use SAM to fix that? Maybe?
