Enhanced SteamGifts & SteamTrades (ESGST)

An extension / userscript that adds some cool features to SteamGifts and SteamTrades.

If you find any bugs or have any feature requests, please file an issue here.


Compatibility

Tested and confirmed as working:

  • Chrome (since v55)
  • Firefox (since v52)
  • Pale Moon

Not tested but should be working:

  • Any Chromium-based browser (such as Opera, Vivaldi, etc...)

Not supported:

  • Edge
  • Safari

Installation

There are two different ways to use ESGST: extension or userscript. You can choose which one you want to use, but the extension is a lot faster and has a better peformance than the userscript, so I recommend it, although there is no major difference between them, except for a few options that are only available in the extension because of limitations in the userscript.

Option 1 - Extension

It should be possible to install the extension in any Chromium-based browser from the Chrome store (such as Opera, Vivaldi, etc...), any Firefox-based browser from the Firefox store (such as Waterfox, etc...), and any browser that uses the Phoebus system from the Pale Moon store (such as Basilik, etc...).

You can also use the extension on Android through Firefox for Android, but some features might not work or not be optimized enough for mobile.

Option 2 - Userscript

To install the userscript, you must install Tampermonkey, Greasemonkey or some other userscript manager first. Then click here and you should be prompted to install it. I recommend Tampermonkey, because the userscript uses the GM_addValueChangeListener API to communicate changes in the storage between tabs, and that API is not available on Greasemonkey, so a polyfill is used for Greasemonkey, which is not very effective and can affect the performance.

You can also use the userscript on Android through Firefox with Violentmonkey or USI, but some features might not work or not be optimized enough for mobile.

I'm having a strange issue since a few days ago where when I view a thread, it automatically scrolls down to the bottom of the page where the comment input box is present. I've checked the features I have enabled (I only use very few of them) but there is no such option enabled.

The issue is only present when ESGST is enabled. Any ideas?

A few days ago? ESGST now automatically focuses on comment boxes, but that only started in the latest version, which was released yesterday (https://github.com/gsrafael01/ESGST/issues/1262). I should probably make it do that only in giveaway pages.

Aye, I actually remember it only started yesterday.
Can it be made as an option as with other features? I always appreciate the chance to enable and disable the features to my liking.

If not, no worries - Just a suggestion. I'll be happy if at least the threads do not have this feature.

This is a super annoying change. I don't understand why we are forced to have this be mandatory now. I feel like the option should be there. I hate having to close the box every time. I don't read the descriptions anyways. Most of them are useless.

ESGST for Android - Need Testers

For any Android users out there, I am currently working on an Android version of ESGST (forked from SteamGifts for Android) and I would appreciate if I could get some testers to make sure that the app works correctly before releasing it as a stable version. If you are interested, please reply here and I will let you know when the next beta is ready to be tested.

Also, keep in mind that ESGST for Android does not include all of the ESGST features. At the moment, the only difference between ESGST for Android and SteamGifts for Android is that ESGST for Android allows you to interact with SteamTrades (view trades, comment on trades, bump trades, etc), but my goal is to gradually add ESGST features to ESGST for Android based on popular demand.

I might consider porting the app to iOS if there is demand, but I have no idea how to do that and how hard / fast it would be, so my focus right now is Android.

Maybe you hit the button to block the app? I'll try to get a v2.0-beta.2 out when I have some time, but not sure how else I can sign it. I verified the app's signature using an online checker and it shows that the app is signed.

One question, please. When opening a thread, now I have to the left of the number of comments of the thread, three vertical buttons (: 13,761 Comments, using this thread example, but three instead of two buttons) . when pressing those three vertical buttons I see hidden different options, like searching for comments or image carousell, which before were not hidden. Is there any way to NOT make it hidden by default.

Another question: In the normal steamgifts.com page I always had under each giveaway

Number of entries (example. 1588) - Number of comments (example, 3 comments) - Show description (If I want to see the description

But recently I am watching that this goes instead

Show description - Number of entries - Number of comments

Can it be something I did with ESGST?

Thanks.

Since some Time I get a windows Bluescreen with Unexpected_Store_Exception.
I didn’t knew why, but it seems linked to ESGST as I browse normally all the time, but when I enable ESGST (which was disabled when I restarted) and use the giveaway extractor, it doesn’t take long to not respond anymore and then crash my whole pc.
Any idea what I can do?
Without ESGST SteamGifts isn’t really fun.

It could be related to your RAM, ESGST may be stressing It in a way it doesn't like or your browser + ESGST use too much memory and windows crash. Anyway, I personally have seen ESGST crash the browser but never Windows itself.

Let's gather some info to help gsrafael01:
Windows version? Browser version? ESGST version?
X64 windows or x86? RAM size?
It only crashes on the giveaway extractor or does anything else triggers the BSOD (in ESGST or any other program)?

Comment has been collapsed.

Windows 10, Firefox, everything up to date
X64 8Gb
The strange thing is that it doesn’t crash immediately, but only after some time has past.
First I can still move the mouse but not interact with anything (music is still running in the background) then it crashes

My Firefox is using a lot of ram, but that wasn’t a problem before (but I also could use ESGST before without problems)

Take a closer look at the BSODs, there may be some information on what might be causing them.
There are some tools that try to show what file was the culprit, they aren't 100% accurate but could be a start.

Try having the task manager open all the time and seeing how your memory usage gets. I've had BSODs happen for me with that same exception when I open too many programs that consume a lot of memory. Firefox is one of those for me (which is funny, because many people say that Chrome is a memory hog, but Chrome consumes a lot less memory than Firefox on my computer), so it could be the cause.

Options 2.16.3 and 2.16.4 are mutually exclusive. My settings show that I have 2.16.4 enabled and 2.16.3 disabled.

However, when I extract GAs I get popups for sgtools GAs.

I disabled 2.16.4 and now I am unable to enable either one, both 2.16.3 and 2.16.4 say they cannot be enabled due to the other one being enabled, even though they both show up as being disabled.

Any workaround/fix for this problem?

Right now I have options 2.16.3 and 2.16.4 showing as disabled. If I try to enable either one, it gives me an error message.

Here are the two error messages I get when I try to enable one or the other:

Enable 2.16.3:

This feature conflicts with 2.16.4 Automatically retrieve the giveaway link from SGTools giveaways that have already been unlocked.. While that feature is enabled, this feature cannot be enabled.

Enable 2.16.4:

This feature conflicts with 2.16.3 Automatically open any SGTools links found in new tabs.. While that feature is enabled, this feature cannot be enabled.

Both of these options are DISABLED, so neither one should tell me the other option is in conflict when I try to enable one of them.

Any chance this will be fixed soon?

It seems that things have changed with this, but it still is behaving strangely.

Setting currently show 2.16.4 option is enabled, and 2.16.3 is disabled. However, when I use GA extractor on a page that has sgtools GAs, it tries to pop-up over 100 pop-ups (which my browser prevents), which all seem to be the same GA.

If I try to disable 2.16.4, and save, then bring back up the settings, it is still enabled. Also, if I try to enable 2.16.3 (which based on the pop-ups I am getting seems to already be enabled) it says "this feature conflicts with 2.16.4...".

It's intended that you can't easily get rid of the descriptions since 8.3.8:

1326 Enter / Leave Giveaway Button: remove option to show description and make it mandatory

There is a cache feature and a custom filters feature you can use to reduce the amount of descriptions you see. If that's not enough for you then there is A-ESGST.

I've had enough with the description popup. Totally fed up. It kills the workflow... the very reason I installed the script to begin with. I can't even find a good reason this was forced on users. Probably for the people who think they are clever saying "I got this key from a shady source so if you enter you agree to not penalize me if the key is no good"

Anyone recommend a fork that doesn't have this crap? Also looking to toggle hide/show already entered giveaways

For a fork you should look just a few comments above and to show / hide the entered giveaways you can use giveaway filters multiple filters entered.

The discoverability of that setting wasn't straightforward at all. Thanks for the direct link. However, it didn't work. I had to create a manual rule for 'NOT Entered equal true' and that got me what I wanted.... mostly. It doesn't work on Wishlist or Group, just All.

Please go whine somewhere else, without ESGST you'd have to open the giveaway in a new tab to enter. "Kills the workflow" is just a half-assed excuse for "I want to enter as many giveaways as I can, as fast as I can, with the least possible interaction with the creators", which just screams ungrateful. You're probably one of those people who would gladly auto-enter giveaways in mass if it wasn't against SteamGifts' rules. Everything for those precious gibs!

Also, please learn how to use the search function before asking a question that has already been answered 1000000000 times, even right here in this page, 5 comments above yours.

So please take your entitled ass and drag it to JustArchi's fork. Thank you.

"Kills the workflow" is just a half-assed excuse for "I want to enter as many giveaways as I can, as fast as I can, with the least possible interaction with the creators"

That is exactly right. WHY ELSE would I use it? That is literally the point

"Also, please learn how to use the search function ... even right here in this page, 5 comments above yours"

Amazing ,use of the search function for "fork" only mentioned Foxbonds fork which was taken down. But if it makes you feel better thinking I'm the idiot, whatevs. I now see at46's comment about A-ESGST, located at https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/EL31e/ in case anyone ELSE tries to search for a fork. Fork.

I'd just like to end this conversation with stating that you and I clearly see SteamGifts as two different things. I see it as a place to give away the games I don't want, need, or otherwise can't use. In turn, I get games that other people don't want, need, or can't otherwise use. Your beef seems to be that you see it as a way for people to promote their social media, game company, ponzi scheme, whatever, for the cost of a game.

Anyway, the popup is just bad UI. You could simply put a div under each giveaway with the description, still in clear view of anyone entering said giveaway. But apparently this isn't in-your-face enough because of your idea of what SteamGifts is.

WHY ELSE would I use it?

To speed up the process, while still being grateful for the opportunity to win a game that was, you know, bought by someone. Just by not having to open a new tab to enter a giveaway, you're already saving plenty of time and resources. And there are many giveaways that don't have a description, so letting the extension check this for you is also a huge time saver.

use of the search function for "fork" only mentioned Foxbonds fork

Plenty of keywords you could have used to search for this topic that are way more relevant than "fork", such as "description". And, like I said, you didn't even need to search because there was a comment 5 comments above yours about it, so just some observation skills could have helped you.

I see it as a place to give away the games I don't want, need, or otherwise can't use. In turn, I get games that other people don't want, need, or can't otherwise use.

Just because you have that philosophy doesn't mean everyone else does. I've given away plenty of games I wanted. If you want to trade games, SteamTrades is there for you.

Your beef seems to be that you see it as a way for people to promote their social media, game company, ponzi scheme, whatever, for the cost of a game.

What? When did I ever imply that? Most of the time it's useful information, like a possible region restriction, a possible not working key, a restriction about not entering if you own a certain number of games in a package, a warning about the giveaway being enterable even if you own the game etc.

You could simply put a div under each giveaway with the description, still in clear view of anyone entering said giveaway. But apparently this isn't in-your-face enough because of your idea of what SteamGifts is.

That would be much more "in-your-face" than a popup that you can simply click out of. A div under the giveaway would not only push all other giveaways down, but would also completely mess with the flow of the page, while a popup is much less "in-your-face" because it doesn't modify the page at all.

On the contrary, you're the one who has a warped idea of what SteamGifts is. And like I said, take that to JustArchi's fork, where leechers like you belong.

Hi everyone. I'd like to know if anyone is interested in helping me update the User Suspension Tracker database. It's been ages since I last updated it, and there are hundreds of tickets waiting for review, which I just can't find the time to do. Basically what you would have to do is see if a ticket is valid and save it as not activated + multiple, not activated, multiple or invalid. There's a nice interface for that which reduces manual work.

Although I'm unsure about the usability of that feature (it never was useful for me in the past), I would like to help you.

I guess it was never useful because it hasn't been updated in ages, so there are very few tickets reviewed.

Sorry to bother you, but I'm not sure if you missed my post from 2 weeks ago, I am still having this problem and hope that there is some workaround to fix it (perhaps editing my configuration save or something).

Thanks

I didn't miss it (I use Comment Tracker to mark issues as solved in this thread by marking them as read), just haven't worked on it yet, but I've opened a GitHub issue to track it faster: https://github.com/gsrafael01/esgst/issues/1409

I don't think there's a workaround, but I'll try to push the next version until Friday.

OK, thanks. I see that Mully also has a similar problem with other options, so I guess this is not specific to me or to these options.

i had a problem with two settings:

v 8.3.15-dev.1

1.2 Attached Image Loader
1.37 Visible Attached Images

1.2 and 1.37 are disabled and can't be enabled.
if you try to enable 1.2, it says 1.37 conflicts because it's enabled. https://i.imgur.com/rXfXo0R.jpg
if you try to enable 1.37, it says the same with 1.2. https://i.imgur.com/KRfgGqL.jpg

both are disabled in the json

"ail_sg":{"enabled":0,
"vai_sg":{"enabled":0,

if one is manually edited and the settings restored, it works (unless you disable it from the settings and save).

"ail_sg":{"enabled":1,
or
"vai_sg":{"enabled":1,

🤷
