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

Link www.sgtools.info

Themes

  1. Dark blue theme: install
  2. Black theme: install

User Scripts

  1. SGTools Helper: Help you create giveaways with SGTools typical options and marks protected giveaways on steamgifts giveaway page
  2. Links to user profile: Awesome userscript made by SilentGuy that adds links to the common sgtools checks on a user profile. See his thread
  3. Links on giveaway's winners page. The script will add a sgtools.info link next to each winner's 'Request New Winner' link in your giveaway's winners list, so that you can easily check them for non-activated and multiple wins
  4. ESGST: An all-in-one script to rock your Steamgifts experience. It integrates to and gives quick access to several SGT functionality from inside steamgifts website.

Tools

  1. Check real cv value (as we had in steamgifts v1) and it's level translation with a detailed log of every game contribution and how they add up to the final number.
  2. Check real cv for your won gifts, so you can compare with your send gifts.
  3. Check if a user has activated all his gifts, useful if you want to check a little bit the winners of your giveaways.
  4. Multiple Wins. Checks if a user has won and marked as received the same game more than once
  5. Whitelisted Games. List of well-known false positive games on "not activated checker". Not activated tool already uses them to whitelist the results, this is just to check what games are troublesome.
  6. Last Bunled Games. List new additions to the bundle list of the last 7 days with a minimum of 50 entries, showing the game (with a link to steam), the date since the game is considered bundled and the date when it was added to the bundle list.
  7. Create, manage and enter giveaways with more advanced and complex filters than the ones in steamgifts.

Limitations

  1. Since CG don’t give us an open API, all requests have to parse your full profile to check your sent games, this will take some seconds (more if you gave away tons of games!), so please be patient.
  2. The site uses a cached bundle list, so if you find a recent bundle game that gives you a full value instead of the 15% one, just wait until the next cached bundle list is ready. Cached Bundle list auto-updates itself every 6 hours starting at 3:00AM GMT (3am, 9am, 3pm, 9pm).
  3. The tool will search steam API to get the real cost for packages that has its point value truncated to 50 in steamgifts, but if the package is no longer available the tool will use the points as CV (50$).
  4. It may sound obvious, but the tool can't check not activated gifts if the profile is private.

More "Steam is learning" apps, thanks for the report!

Perhaps you should create a new category for these (on top of DLC and packages) so that when these games finally gets out of the status, it's easier to go through them and remove them from the whitelist

Since all new games in Steam are "Steam is learning" apps is it possible to check if user owns game in some other way?
How it is done in Steam Web Integration script. It somehow knows that I have this game: https://imgur.com/a/vLDiDMR

That script uses http://store.steampowered.com/dynamicstore/userdata/ (you can click on this link to view your data), but this is API for Steam only. There is no equivalent API exposed in Steam Web API (which is provided for 3rd party developer).

Since Valve seems on fire putting tons of games on the "we are learning about this game" list, I've updated SGTools so it checks for this status on the store landing on every game that is flagged as marked as not received before reporting it. If it finds that a game is flagged as "steam learning" it creates an entry on a list of such games automatically and then reports it in a new category inside not activated page.

This should solve all past reports for games in that status and avoid new reports for those not added to the whitelist. This means the whitelist will get reverted to not include those games, since there is now a new and better mechanism to treat them.

But everything is not perfect, as always there is an edge case where the detector can fail and still give a false positive, and that case is on games that are marked as 18+ years, since SGT uses an anonymous session for browsing steam store and then it can't check those games without validation on the year restriction.

Getting a false positive on The Wake, it might be because the game is now as "Coming Soon" or because "Steam is learning about this game".

If it is due to Steam learning ability, then it seems like SGTools check for "Steam is learning about this game" didn't work for this game.

I read that part and checked the page, but didn't find anything saying that is 18+, so I was confused if that was the reason. Also since I own the game, the message asking me if I'm of age doesn't show.

Thank you for the cake wishes ^.^

Hey, I have another false positive to report. "The Initiate 2: The First Interviews" is in "Steam is still learning about this game" mode, and as such is causing me to show as having not registered a game. Can we get that added to the exception list?

I tried entering an SGtools giveaway just now and it failed due to "unactivated wins". I'm just wondering why this might have happened because I've activated every game I've ever won. :/ I dont want giveaway creators to think I'm a rulebreaker because of this

Does it maybe have to do with either of these?

Game is beings correctly reported by steam api and in fact you are not flagged by it.

Maybe steam corrected it already?

Then it's a true positive, as I've checked 4 other winners and they don't flag.

(sorry for spam)

i'll check even more, but it seems to me that this happens only with recent giveaways (2 weeks ago, 3 winners all three "not activated").

checked a GA of 6 months ago (and more) and it's ok.... :|

Have you asked the winners to check what game activated in the Steam account's history? Maybe the developer/publisher changed the appID or subID (or something) with the new batch of keys.

yesterday a SG buddy asked me if i had any problem with those keys.

he said just what you've said (but forgot to write it, above :P): it seems that keys activate square heads zombies TWO, and not the first...

so, thanks a lot, Oppen, as usual. i'll ask "my" winners which one they got

it looks, as Oppen said, dev messing things up :D

False positive - https://store.steampowered.com/app/805940/RUSSIA_BATTLEGROUNDS/

I'm not entirely sure why as the game displays as owned in the store, doesn't look banned or delisted either.

It's because the "steam is learning about this game" thing. This combined with an age check implies that SGT can't auto check it, yet.
