he only has 360 games, the rest are free games, it wouldn't give him any more extra cards. There's some free games valve gave away that do drop but it's not the thousand or so he added to his account. The 99% of the games he has on his acc will never have cards.

There are probably thousands of programs that do exactly this. Personally I've always wanted one that does this but with 31 games and no one has made it. It has made me very sad.

Still... I would be genuinely interested to know why they do that. I don't see the point of artificially inflate your playtime and the number of 100% completed games. I could imagine a kid doing that if they kinda wanted to brag, but in OP's case... the way it's done, over 4 or 5 accounts (if you count their alts), it's not even subtle. You can see at a quick glance that they use a third-party program so that can't fool anyone... and therefore, why do that at all? O_o Sadly, I don't think OP will take the time to explain themselves.

I'm not aware of any programs that do this, but you could Google "random choice generator" and input names of each of your games (though this is tedious and time consuming, you could sort your games by time played on Steam and only input the ones with the least time played).

Another option is to Google "random owned steam game" and the 1st result will let you put the link of your Steam profile. It has a filter for "Unplayed Games", but that still doesn't allow you to select multiple games or choose "less than X hours played" (I guess you could reroll the result though).

Steam counts playtime separately for each game, and can run up to 32 games simultaneously (with some hacks even 33 IIRC). So, 336 * 32 is the maximum.

Erm.. Why 32? I didn't even knew there was a limit.. It's set from Steam itself?

No sane person would run more than 2-3 games at the same time and that would be mostly to test their pc limits.. (not counting card farming)
So how we know this 32? Also.. even with a hack why simply a +1 making 33 and not more? (say pc limit isn't a problem -> pc crashing)

or you mean that the playtime feature can only count up to 32 games at a time but generally it's unlimited?

Why 32?

Ask Valve

It's set from Steam itself?

Yes

So how we know this 32?

Obviously, not because someone playing 32 games at a time. It was initially found by people who reverse-engineered steam protocols for various reasons.

or you mean that the playtime feature can only count up to 32 games at a time but generally it's unlimited?

It means that steam tracks what games you start on your PC, and it can only track up to 32 steam games. In theory - you can run more, but Steam will only detect and send to it's servers information of up to 32 games.

even with a hack why simply a +1 making 33 and not more?

No that's tricky. As I said, Steam detects up to 32 games. But Steam also have a feature to add non-steam games to steam, and it send information about running this game too. That information is send separately from actual Steam games, so this is like +1 field in the protocol. And I've heard that people were able to send information about Steam game as this field, effectively making maximum of detected games 32+1. I haven't tested it and honestly, not even interested in the topic, so this information can as well be wrong.

Wigglenose, sadly people who wants to play games just go ahead and buy them and don't seek sites where they can leech. No matter how people try to cry steamgifts is charity, it is mainly meeting of leechers, idlers, multiaccounters and resellers. 95% of users don't even look on names of games they are entering, maybe because of autojoin scripts, maybe because they don't even care.
I barely do any public giveaway because of such people and if I do, it goes to level 5 and higher. I tried out to giveaway games in groups that requires playing, even when it sounds funny setting a rule to "play a game", when someone enter for it for some reason. The most sad is instead of people enjoying their wins I found people who cheat playing, don't even care of saying thank you (yeah, it is a win, but they still got for free something for other pays) and one of my unbundled giveaways in such groups was maybe resold, cause winner had game hidden.
Over year ago I started whitelist my old winners that really played games from me and people randomly met on forums and groups, on which accounts I am 100% sure they really played win for joy. After year I found 30 such people (with 2 exceptations). So if I want game played, I don't do a giveaway for.

I've been doing level 2 giveaways mostly, but I've been thinking of bumping it up. As far as I know, every game I've won that wasn't in the middle of a series I have actually played (and the one I remember deciding I was going to delay playing, I commented that I was going to wait until I had the entire series and the person was okay with it), at least for a few hours... but when I just randomly look around the site it does seem like I'm an exception, not the rule. I really don't know what, if any, solution there is, but I would rather not stop doing giveaways altogether because of it.

I set level 5 for public GAs.
That lowers the stress and problems with the winners extremely, compared to level 0-2.

Mostly because my BL have 1k in it, with only lvl 5+ users, so i can't block the black sheeps that are lower as that, without to set a level limit

SG is mainly meeting of leechers, idlers, multiaccounters and resellers

If you are looking at the pure user base, yes, this has always been true because every Level 0 account is part of the user base. But in the "good old days" a couple of years back, the community who used this forum - which, kinda, is the community, anyways - was way friendlier, camaraderie was way stronger and nearly all people felt like they were in it together, like they were all part of something special and were sticking together and even standing up for one another.

Those times have passed, sadly, and they will never come back. In the end, SG is a mirror of society and the gaming society.

I also blacklisted him.

If people are ready to cheat achievements and playtime they are ready to cheat anything anywhere and their achievements and playtime are also worthless.

This is why it is best to join some groups and see which ones do you like and do GAs for these groups. Or if I want to do public ones I think level 3+ works best for me.

You know how some people grow extremely long nails? Like, longest nails of them all? It's inconvenient, it makes no sense, but they just do it. Well, this person does more or less the same - trying to maximize all numbers they can on their steam account: number of perfect games, number of wishlisted games, playtimes in last two weeks, etc. They also want all their games to have maximized playtime too, but steam only allows up to 32 games running simultaneously, and they are too lazy to rotate games manually, so they want automated way to do it. It's inconvenient, it makes no sense, but like people with longest nails - they just do it.

Thanks, I've read your post... Sure, to other people, increasing playtime (or having the longest nails ever) doesn't really make sense but I guess the person doing it must have their reasons, something other than "I just feel like it". ;) But yeah, at this point, we can only hypothesize.

frankly, even though you should "never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity." I'd still say it's for scamming.

like, most people when they get an invite on steam, they'd check the profile. when they see a low lvl, little to no games, hardly any playtime etc they quickly jump to conclusion it's a scambot so they just block and ignore but when they see a lot of playtime in multitude of games, achievements, lost of friends, positive comments and such on they profile they might be more likely to believe they're dealing with a real person. and since this account seems to focus on csgo badge, guides, reviews and as someone pointed out above this person is likely doing that thing on several accounts I'm inclined to believe it's all to scam people. either directly or by selling "legit" looking accounts to "real" scammers
although, you know, "never attribute to malice..."

+1 this is exactly what it is basically. Accounts for separate things, a comment bot, 1 separately for "trading", 2 other sperate "main?" profiles. Unless he was planning on losing some of them eventually due to whatever reason it doesn't add up. 300 games on the account yet farming 10k hours in games that don't even count. 99% game completion, out of the 3000 free packages installed. Doesn't actually have any relevant cs go items to trade, so what is he trading. Just sus all the way.

i can understand if you use sam (steam achievment manager) for achievments that got broken from 3rd party extensions, if your achievments are bugged (ultimate chicken horse, you could get the win 20 sudden death achievment without playing sudden death once or resident evil 5 ... i don't know how but played coop with a friend and he got the story achievment, but i did not) or to remove achievments to replay a game. i've idled games when i started with steam and humble free games when i was still in school. card drops, ig items and booster packs helped me to offset game cost if i wanted anything. but just game idling ... well i don't understand it either

Oh sure, unlocking broken cheevos if devs aren't fixing the issue and idling cards, I'd say that's pretty common / normal. I have idled games myself to get the card drops... but in OP's case, nothing that you have mentioned seems to apply to them.

Well for example there are games people get for free from various sites (NOT Steamgifts) and those games are usually very shady: there were and probably there are still undiscovered cases of random shovelware """games""" having crypto miners or even malware in their files. Valve claims they get rid of all these games but can you really trust them when it only takes 100 dollars (not a lot of money considering most monthly wages plus savings) to upload your very own game made with free Unity assets and a surprise malicious file? I'd rather not risk actually installing and playing any of those games, thanks.

Besides, why do you care if someone uses a program to unlock achievements and increase their playtime? It doesn't affect you in any way.

3 months ago

So if something doesn't affect me personally, I'm not allowed to ask questions in order to get a better understanding? K.

So far, I've only seen guesses from other users. I was just genuinely curious to know OP's motives. I don't see anything wrong with that.

That being said... I might be dense but I don't see how your example relate to OP's use of third-party programs. Hang on. Say you have acquired some of those shady games and you don't want to install them. Fair enough. Those shady games probably won't have cards if Steam is "still learning about them", but I think they could have achievements. So ok... you unlock them all with SAM because... you absolutely need 100% completion. Still, why would you idle them for 100s if not 1000s of hour? Even if they had cards, dropping them surely wouldn't take that long. I think that your explanation would work (better) if OP only had those dubious games in their library -or if only those had insane playtime and all cheevos unlocked-, but that's not the case.
