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.

above game is normal edition and not the collector edition, yeah it shows as sub 1175160 but in game screenshot shows it as a collector's edition, so I also confused what to do in this situation.

Good afternoon. Game "MIND SHIFT" (https://steamdb.info/app/682070/) is listed as not activated, although it was actually activated. Possibly due to the game page no longer opening in the Steam client.

How is wishlist_date supposed to be used? Do you compare it to a date string like:
"2020-12-17" > wishlist_date

3 months ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

wishlist_date works with Date operators as described in the help:

Date Operators

  • date(STRING_DATE) - e.g. date('2016-12-05 10:30:43'), date('now')
  • date_modify(DATE, STRING_MODIFICATION) - e.g. date_modify(date('now'), '-1 month')

So you can use:

wishlist_date <= date("2020-12-17")

or

date("2020-12-17") > wishlist_date

Both games are reported correctly by steam API and if a user flags with them it's a true positive.

Concerning names, in the first case the giveaway is a bundle of games (a sub) and the detection name is a game inside the package (if the winner activated the package, he has to have all the games inside the package). The second case is just that the developer renamed the game.

Can I be suspended instead of Phoxy? It's my fault. Not hers. She did not realize that my profile was signed into sgtools and not her own. I had used her laptop recently. She would have surely passed the check without fault.

Sorry but I can't swap suspensions, because it doesn't make sense. You did nothing wrong, so there is no point in suspending you. And she did enter without a valid sgtools entry and the giveaway creator asked for all of them to be applied an infraction.

That being said, Phoxy can ask the giveaway creator to pardon her and tell me to remove her infraction, then I would gladly remove the strike on her account.

As you can see, I don't apply or remove infractions at my own will, neither there is an automatic procedure for this, because at the end of the day it's the giveaway creator who has the power to ask for someone to get striked over an invalid entry.

Activation name: METAL GEAR SOLID V: The Definitive Experience DLC Key

Won METAL GEAR SOLID V: The Definitive Experience and activated the DLC key but METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES was not included in the package. Upon checking, SGTools lists METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES as not activated.

Strangely, everything else in the DLC was added to library except for Ground Zeroes. Is there perhaps another version of Definitive Experience DLC without Ground Zeroes included?

I was looking into it but couldn't find something wrong that I could spot, and the amount of giveaways makes it hard to find the culprits.

About the sync page, those numbers are read from the profile, that's why the numbers there are on point.

Maybe some games possible that have multiple sub ID's and one of them are listed as full cv, the other as bundled at sg and sgtools calculate then with the bundled on and sg with the full cv one ?

I come to that thought because sg have different loopholes there were people pick the full cv one if possible and maybe is sgtools then smarter and pick the lower one.

SGTools uses the same sub/app as steamgifts, as we read it from the link steamgifts generates, so that should not be a factor for the gap of CV.

It was indeed a false positive for the game not being released and the release date was not specified the first time SGTools scanned the new appid. I updated release date for the game and it will only flag after release.

Measurement Problem shows as an unactivated win through SGTools.

Here's a small discussion where I mentioned it, and a fellow user explained what was going on.

(https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/8eJqn/been-a-while-since-i-made-a-forum-giveaway/search?page=3#mNXolgO)

It was the game that got changed at some point into a fake dupe for PUBG with intentions of a marketplace coin scam. The key is activated but with everything that app went through it now reports as a false unactivated hit.

That is interesting... there are two appids that this game has had over the years. One is correctly reported by steam api, and it's the one that is linked at the giveaway. I've put them on the equivalent table but it seems that the other appid is banned, so even the equivalent table can't solve it. Can you confirm that the appid of the game in your library is 785960?

When i go from the library entry of the game to the shop i land at the mainpage of the shop.
So i own the banned one (no idea which ID).

How is that now solveable ?
And why did it appeared new ? 2 months ago were my account clean (i check myself regulary).

Comment has been collapsed.

I whitelisted the game even if the normal appid works fine, as the other appid is banned :\

It appeared now because I removed the Learning List feature, as it's no longer necessary. Steam Api has a new (some month old) flag that if specified returns all of the user games, including profile limited and learning ones.
