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.

Steamdb shows the apps that are inside the sub that you won: Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide Collector's Edition.

You don't have the base game for that package, so you should contact the giveaway creator to check if he/she gave you the correct game.

Hello!
I think I have a problem with a game I own and that is not recognized as owned by SG Tools:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1190460/Death_Stranding/
When using the Activated wins checker, it flags that game as not activated although it's present in my library.

When Steam doesn't accurately report the release date of a game this happens. I edited the release date to the end of summer of 2020, so it should be good now :)

I've won Counter-Strike Complete https://store.steampowered.com/sub/54030/
According to steamdb, the pack contains CS: Global Offensive https://store.steampowered.com/app/730, but because the game is actually f2p it didn't activate on my account at the day when the other games activated. I have added the game to my library, but SGT still considers it not-activated.

There are several packages for Counter Strike Complete, that includes different games. It seems that the giveaway that you won and the package that you received are from different packages.

Giveaway package: contains CS:GO Complete
Package received: doesn't contain CS:GO at all

Since CS:GO is actually F2P (at least the base game) now that you have it added to your account, SGT can see it and doesn't flag. But that will change when some time passes without you playing or installing the game, so you should have this sorted out with SG support.
That doesn't happen with the correct Package, since it has Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Full Edition that makes the F2P game appear always on the library.

Hey, i was just wondering. Since it is possible to lose your level because of price changes, is it possible to change the real CV as well? Or is it always calculated according to the day i won/send gifts?

Comment has been collapsed.

RealCV is never calculated on the day you win or give away the games, it's always calculated on demand (with some caching depending on where you are looking at it).

So, can it change later when the unbundled game i give/won bundled later?

Comment has been collapsed.

I think you are referring to Steamgifts CV rules? Those are explained on the FAQ/Guidelines of the site and doesn't involve SGTools at all (this thread is for SGTools).

As a quick explanation, if you gave away the game before it was in a bundle, you'll get the full contribution value for it. But if you give it away when it was in a bundle, but not yet in the bundle list, when it's added to the list you'll get reduced contribution value for it.

Nope, i was asking for SGTools or RealCV Calculator specifically.

I couldn't understand if RealCV Calculator is later changing like Steamgifts CV. (When game's price changed) or game bundled etc.

Yeah, it follows SG changes. It may have some delay because SGT only scans bundled games few times a day. But other than that, it's real-time.

Hello! I have a problem with the multiple wins checker. Although the multiple wins checker (https://www.sgtools.info/multiple/gkm6013) said I have no multiple wins for the same game, the giveaway pages in SGTool told me that my account is " flagged as having multiple wins for the same game."

Hi knsys! There seems to be an error with the game activation check for this user

I didn't check all of course but did some randomly and all are in his account (e. g. SimplePlanes, Akihabara, Ara Fell, DARK SOULS™ III)

Any idea why this happened? For other users it seems to work

For some reason there was another user on SG with that same name in the past, so it was checking against the other user SteamId. Fixed now, thanks for the report!

Hey knsys, I've been having trouble with sgtools for about a year now and not been able to enter any gated giveaways as it seems to time out. I can check my real cv value of games won and received but when I try to check my non activated wins or multiple wins, I just get an error message. I am assuming its due to my stats messing it up. I have also tried to sync using the home tab but still get the same issue. Any chance of a fix?

This is the reason some of us keep asking CG to implement a restful API for steamgifts so we don't have to parse every single page. It would be beneficial to both ends, but it's not in our hands to do it and CG doesn't seem to like the idea.

There is no such thing as a fix for this, because there is nothing broken, just inefficiency from SG part. I could do a major rework and start keeping track of all steam prices and all giveaways of the site, but I'm not sure it's worth it tbh. We really need an API that we can check in one easy swing.

Hey knsys!

http://www.sgtools.info/nonactivated/Naitas
World of relish - Steam is learning about this Game;

But in my case, it is displayed as a "guaranteed" not activated win.
Would it be possible to change this?

Apparent false positive situation. I have a winner who has a previous win of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero appearing as nonactivated, but has Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition on his account. They have a different AppID, obviously, but owning Ultimate Edition should probably count toward the basic game.

Added them to the app equivalence table. But this means that the giveaway creator selected the incorrect game, tho.

Probably. I wrote here without consulting the winner about it, so I don't know what actually happened, but that's what I imagine too.

Game is correctly reported by steam api, so it's not a false positive.

I think what they mean is that the Dreamcast Collection key they won in the giveaway didn't include NiGHTS Into Dreams, which the system now expect them to own.

After checking SteamDB, what I think happened is that they received a very old key (this or this), while already owning Jet Set Radio from elsewhere (SEGA gave it for free in one of their "Make War, Not Love" events).

You are right, didn't check that. I was checking 4 more messages from a ban wave and other games not detected by the API and I went auto-mode on your message too, sorry about that.

I've checked and Miku is completely right, giveaway creator selected the giveaway that is not bundled on Steamgifts (appid 116763) but send you a key from an old and bundled one (7522).

On this case, the best solution is for support to change the game of the giveaway to reflect the game that you got in the key. Nothing I can do from SGT point of view unfortunately.
