SteamGifts Tools is a tool in a form of a website that lets you do some interesting checks to steamgifts mechanics:

It seems that CG is doing something to the website, if you try to enter the site without a valid sessionID cookie you get an infinite redirect loop.
Thats why the tools is not working (it works without a logged in user).
As soon as this is corrected, the tool should work again
Thanks for sharing! I'll try again later. :)
Nice! Great and very useful tool for me.. i find so long time. Good Work! :)
Thanks for the cool tool!
It looks like the tool includes CV for all copies of multiple copy giveaways, even if all of those copies are not marked as "received". For instance I gave away 3 copies of a game, but only two of them have been marked "received"; the tool indicates that I got CV for all three copies.
Thank you, this is really helpful!
Funny, for me this tool displays slightly less CV then my level would imply...
But ages ago i lost some CV when humble bundle created a bundle that contained a game I had just given away that day. I made a comment about my GA having ended an hour before the bundle was published, not expecting anything to happen, but I was then told that the start time of the bundle has been fixed and I actually got full CV.
It seems this fix carried over to SGv2 :-D I don't know it they internally added a time to the bundle date (which is just not being displayed) or bobofatt manually changed something about my GA but whatever it was, it carried over cause assuming full CV for this brings my expected level to 5.50 :)

its correct? 0$ ???
Real CV for account Selknam Defense: 0$
"Selknam Defense" is not an account, it's a game... you want to enter your username: "Real CV for account BERELVIS: 12$"
only work with names so
The link seems to be down... and I can't even search with IsItDownRightNow to see if it's really down for everyone.
Just a little bump to keep topic on first page of discussions.
how often does it update its bundle list?
Now only manually, I have to cron it.
I just updated it, when I have time I'll put it in crontab
Changed the link from a pure ip to a free domain: http://www.sgcv.tk/
Since a week ago bundle list gets refreshed once per day at 3AM GMT
Great, Thank you! :D
Thank you for the tool.
Think you can do the same thing, but for gifts won, instead of given?
I'd like to compare Real give cv vs Real won cv.
Came to this thread to bring this up and saw this so seconding it. Would be nice to get a straightforward comparison since neither numbers nor raw value tell much.
I'll check it when I have time :)
Thank you, this is a very useful tool and effort in expanding even further is very much appreciated here. :)
Real CV for account Venhiem: 105.75$
Real CV for account Venhiem: 105.75$
Why aren't I level 4 yet? It says 3.79 on my profile which means 94$... ah well close 'nuff, will get there soon.
Just under $90 actually and because it hasn't been updated yet both Sword of Asumi and Vanguard Princess Lilith are in the bundle list since mar 23. One of your SoA giveaways is considered to be before bundle so you only get bundle value for one and VPL which accounts for the 16 difference in value.
You're level 4 in my heart Venhiem. Isn't it all that matters?
The site use a cached bundled list to avoid a massive hammering on SG.
That cached list gets updated everyday at 3AM GMT.
So if you check it after that time, the value should be correct
Just checked mine cv, found out that some games that previous correctly detected as Bundled Games now appear as Full value game
Something wrong happen ?
It should work again.
Something failed during the automatic sync at 3AM, I guess the server didn't respond to one of the petitions of the parser and it stopped at bundle page 28.
While you are digging through all this data anyway, could you also run this on the RECEIVED gifts? I just like statistics, no other reason...
The next thing I'll do is a switch to select if you want the real CV from your gifts or from your wins :)
Wow awesome changes mate.
I hope the level information and progress bar helps people find it more useful. You where fast noticing the new changes, no even 10 minutes!
I use it, like, all the time, and currently I'm waiting to get level 5 so yeah, I noticed it quick. Great addition, just looking forward to Gifts Won CV calculation xD
Added the option to calculate real CV from Won Gifts.
Damn, I should not have asked for this... now I feel like a really bad person... :P Joking aside: Cool site :)
Awesome, wasn't expecting it to be so low compared to my giveaways thank you very much for adding it. :D
You forgot to count public giveaways with 1-4 entries. #2 here
Supposidly, you are supposed to get cv for public giveaways, as long as it has 1 entry.
edit: example: http://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/O2rM2/rise-of-flight-channel-battles-edition-furious-wings
^yields no cv on your site: http://www.sgcv.tk/sent/gbaz69
I thought that every giveaway with less than 5 entries didn't give CV, I'll change it later.
You may want to double check with cg.
Now it checks the 5 entry rule only against non-public giveaways, thanks for the report :)
On SG im level 5 and on this site say this: http://www.sgcv.tk/sent/Tyler889
The culprit is "Total War Grand Master Collection". The sites say it's worth 100 points, as it's the limit of points for a giveaway, but the real CV is higher. My script has no way to know the real value, so it counts 100$.
Unless CG opens a public API, there is no way to check the real value
no prob, great idea anyway ;)
ah.. and great idea also the .tk domain :D
Best tool ever
nice! what about one for gifts won?
It's already done, just change the dropdown at the main page
