SteamGifts Tools (formerly known as Real CV calculator for SGv2) 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

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.

Changelog

1. New design for the website, using steamgifts default theme as reference, since we all are used to it.
2. Now we have a new tool to check if a user has activated all his wins.
3. Buttons at top to change between tools, like steamgifts, and a button to steamgifts itself.
4. Now when we display a steamgifts username (results of win/sent cv or activation status), the name will be a link to his SG profile.
5. In Activation status tool, every entry on the log of games will be a link to the steam store page of that game/dlc.
6. Checkbox to change order to newest on top
7. Detailed game log for not activated DLCs and removed-from-steam-api is now hidden by default. There is a button to show/hide it.
8. Some more explained cases where the prediction can cause false positives.
9. Added giveaway type breakdown on sent CV
10. Added giveaway type breakdown on won CV
11. Whitelist for well-known games that don't appear as owned.
12. Whitelisted games are now shown in games log as a hidden entity like DLC's and Not-in-steam-Api ones
13. Added a new tab to list all whitelisted Games
14. Added a new tab to check multiple wins for the same game

NEWS

About last Bans

Two days ago I was manually reviewing the anti-cheat logs for the last months and evaluating the data in them.
At the end, 6 cases where clearly abusing misuse of giveaway feedback to bypass sgtools rules. That behavior is one of the two punished with a ban, being the other one, leaking a giveaway URL.

As was expected, those people are just complaining about the ban in this thread, and of course all of them define themselves as not guilty, at least here in the forum.
New section: **Deals**

On this section you'll see a list of current deals on the following official reseller stores (Amazon US, Steam, GamersGate, GreenManGaming). 

Deals of games that are on the bundled list are hidden by default, but there is a toggle at the top of the page to show/hide them whenever you want. If you decide to show bundle games, you'll see that they have a light red background to easily distinguish them from non-bundled deals.

Deals will show every deal that is above or equal to 50% discount, since they are the most notorious and the ones that interest most to people.
New Infraction system.
Infractions replaces bans on "entered sgtools protected giveaway without a valid entry" cases. This new system will use a strikes based calculations to ensure that a user is really aware of those infractions before being permanently denied of getting thought sgtools giveaways.

Strike system details:
1. First Strike -> 1 month
2. Second Strike -> 3 months
3. Third Strike -> 6 months
4. Forth+ Strike -> 3000 years (aka perma infraction).

Users currently serving an infraction will see a red bar on the top of every giveaway-related page informing of the time it'll expire. They can do every operation on sgtools apart from qualifying for giveaways and getting the url.

There is still permabans in place (currently only 5), for the following cases:
* Users that misuse giveaway feedback to bypass giveaway rules
* Giveaway url leakers
* Trying to exploit in any other way the system
New train system is live.
You'll see that now giveaway creation part accepts **multiple steamgifts url's**. The **first one** is considered the **main giveaway** and it'll be the one that appears on the sgtools protected giveaway's details.
You'll only be able to** enter wagons to sgtools during giveaway creation** time, and they **cannot be modified** (either removed or added). If you need more wagons you will need to create another giveaway altogether.

In short, a wagon will only be considered protected if it has been added during giveaway creation time, that gives more control over trains and closes some spaces that malicious users could use to try to ban other people.

This means that you will only be able to **check invalid entries for wagons that are on the system** associated with the main giveaway.

Wrong string in giveaway creation:
"Filter: Activated all won games".
Because user can fair activate game on account and then remove. (and in this case SGTools doen't count it as activated).
Right string must be something like this:
"Filter: Have all won games on account at the time of verification"

And how should SGTools check that?

Removing a win from your account will get you in trouble with Steamgifts' rules too, as far as I know.

String is still correct, it checks if the won games are currently activated, if you remove them from your steam account, they are not activated at check time.

The game "Scary House" was noted by sgtools as not activated, but when I checked and entered the key again, it says "product already owned."

I checked the steam store page for the game, but it seems to have been removed and when I look it up in my games list on my profile page, it does not show up. These might be reasons the false positive is triggered.

Account has been temporarily blocked for up to 24 hours due to suspicious traffic. Please review any scripts or third-party add-ons you might be using.

Let's see if I can speak to CG to understand why it triggered a 24h ban.

Just to clarify: SGT doesn't use any account to parse data from Steamgifts, it uses anonymous view but the "IP Banned" message is the one above.

I think he is talking about his account that the tool uses is banned. Hence when all of us try to access a SGTool protected GA we get errors. I noticed my errors started yesterday. Same "something happened" and now "no account" as others mention above. I am assuming that when it gets sorted out that we will all work again.

It's actually not his account, but his IP address that is banned. When the SGTools server tries to get information about you from steamgifts.com it is unable to because the IP address of the SGTools server has been temporarily blocked by steamgifts.

It seems the ban has been lifted now, I guess we'll see if it continues to be a problem in the future...
