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. SG Dark Grey Userstyle by SquishedPotatoe thread
  2. Old (deprecated) ones:

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. 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.
  6. Create, manage and enter giveaways with more advanced and complex filters than the ones in steamgifts.
  7. Deals and their bundle status

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.

Hey,

There is error in SGtools downloading price from Steam for this DLC:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/313790/Royal_Quest__Champion_of_Aura_Pack/

It is $25 game, but SGtools reports it as $50. So it may inflate user's CV like in this case:

https://www.sgtools.info/sent/exsly89

I don't think it's like with daedalic bug, as on SG game is correctly reported to be worth 25p. So it may retrieve value from wrong appID?

Thanks for the catch, I'll check why Steam PICS didn't report the app in the changelist!

This is probably answered elsewhere, but does sgtools permanently flag you for non activated wins if I win a giveaway and mark it as not received?

It doesn't, just force synchronize your data visiting https://www.sgtools.info/sync/force

Hi knsys. SGTools shows my sent RealCV as much higher than what SG shows.
https://www.sgtools.info/sent/VaKiff

I've done sync a few times and nothing changed, so I wonder how can I track the GAs that SG apparently values lower than SGTools?

Hi VaKiff,

This difference comes from free games not being recognized as so. That happens because Steamgifts doesn't share a list of the games that it considers free. The list SGTools uses is based off a community effort collected through ESGST UserScript.

No, it comes from wrong prices and numerous new bugs. The last rework has created a massive mess. It will take me awhile to write down all errors...

Here's one to start with:
When a game has been given out more than 5 times, for whatever reason the calculation suddenly doubles its value for following giveaways.

Hi Tristar,

You are right, just fixed the issue with game cv not being calculated correctly when diminishing returns value was used.
Please, when you got some free time, report the other errors that you've found so I can check what is happening.

New update means that every operation now is a ton faster than before, but implies that sgtools no longer uses values from steamgifts to do calculations, it uses instead values from steam api directly.

Seems like I had the issue Tristar mentioned. Right now SGTools reports the same sent RealCV as SG. Thank you knsys for this wonderful tool.

I looked one more time and I have to correct my statement - they're almost the same. Currently SGTools shows sent RealCV as 10,96$ higher than SG. Close enough ;)

706400 Death's Maze is reported as not activated for one user I checked but the game seems to be removed from the steam store. Is it a false positive?

Death's Maze is correctly reported by steam api, so it's a true positive

Maze of pain is now reporting as not activated even though I have this game in my account. It maybe a new false positive.

Guess that the user will need to do that, not my account so it's meaningless if I force sync mine (unless I'm missing something)

sgtools show that I didn't activate a game, but I already have done so on 5/26. My guess is because of the current status of the game is "prerelease" and was once released in April then removed (fairly odd scenario).

China Girls 1319330 seems to be a false positive (removed from steam), the tool can't take back games that are banned right?
