Added to the learning list, thanks for the report!
There is error in SGtools downloading price from Steam for this DLC:
It is $25 game, but SGtools reports it as $50. So it may inflate user's CV like in this case:
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
Perfect, thank you
I have 2 invalid entries in my GA:
Infractions applied, thanks for the report!
Hi knsys. SGTools shows my sent RealCV as much higher than what SG shows.
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?
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.
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.
Yes, was your case indeed :)
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 ;)
Hi ! 😃
I got 1 invalid entry: https://www.sgtools.info/giveaways/97854a77-819f-11ea-8a4b-fa163e96784d .
Check it please.
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
Thanks for checking
Maze of pain is now reporting as not activated even though I have this game in my account. It maybe a new false positive.
Added Maze of pain and some other banned from steam api games to the whitelist!
Geezer Gus: The Meteorite Motel
I have this games, but sgtools is reporting as not activated
Wow thank you, it's unexpected
A year ago, I created an account on this amazing site.
Now I am one year old :) 🎂
Too many more years ;D
Won this a few days ago, activated in library but detected as a false positive by SGT as an unactivated win (https://www.sgtools.info/nonactivated/DanZDK)
I was checking an user and a game is marked as not received but SGTools marks it as not activated
Force synchronize your data visiting https://www.sgtools.info/sync/force
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).
Added to the Whitelist, thanks for the report!
China Girls 1319330 seems to be a false positive (removed from steam), the tool can't take back games that are banned right?
