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.

Hello,

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1420730 is showing up as Not Owned when Owned.

I also have https://store.steampowered.com/app/1079970 showing up as Not Owned yet I have not won it here on SteamGifts.

The Save the Planet you have in your library is appID 1469350, which is not the same as the giveaway.
Luckily, you still have a day to change the feedback, and getting in contact with the giveaway creator won't be difficult since they're an active user.

Mundus 2, on the other hand, seems to be from an old deleted giveaway (where you likely received the first instead, as it's what you have), it's still showing up as not activated because it's cached, you can fix it by logging to SGTools and forcing an account sync.

Your account is flagged as having some unactivated Wins or your profile is Private.
This also can happen when Steam is down when you account synchronizes, if that is the case synchronize again.

Maybe I don't understand the concept of things but I activated all the games I won, yet I failed to find a replacement for one SENT key, so maybe this is the issue. So I hope for some clarification on this matter. Also I forced a full sync. yet one line states "Pass Activated Rule: no". The steam profile is all public.

The two games showing up as not activated are:

  • Sins of a Dark Age won 2014-11-24 20:30:00
  • Rescue Love Revenge won 2017-06-17 20:20:00

Neither of those games shows up in your Steam library when I looked for them via your profile.

Have you maybe deleted them from your account?

Yes, I deleted them, so until I get them back I won't be able to pass this check?

I found this rule checker on sgtools, but somehow it doesn't show up Woodle Tree 2: Deluxe+ as unactivated, though I deleted it from my account too.

So my main goal is to eventually delete all the shovelware(in my consideration) from my account, so deleting these two games were essential in achieving this goal. I could buy these keys in the future since they are both under a dollar, yet it is strange that it's somehow relevant to keep all of the won games in your library, especially since games like these are being given in tremendous quantities and they basically don't have any value.

If you look at the second category "Games that are well-known false positives and have been whitelisted in the tool" you will find Woodle Tree 2: Deluxe+.

You can restore them via Steam, you don't have to buy them.
Just put them in their own category in your library and hide them. Plus maybe research the game before entering the GA. If it seems like shovelware to you, just don't enter.

But yes, you can't pass sgtools checks unless you have them in your account. So will be unable to access quite a few forum GAs.
And a lot of public GA creators check their winners for non-activations and ask for a re-roll, so this will generate a lot of tickets for support.

Okay, thank you for heads up! I didn't even know that you can restore deleted products, thanks for this too, may be of use not only this time.
P.S.: Just to clarify for some reason. I chose the way of deleting game instead of hiding them because of total products owned count, wanna keep it about 1000 because of some buzz bug, though it would have more sense if I keep it below 1k for groups and sgtools GAs that are specifically require <1k games. One way or another, your input definitely helped me a big lot, sending you good vibes.

When someone report you for "unactivated wins" (the deleted ones) you will be suspended.
In the case of 2 unactivated wins, this would mean a 10 days suspension.
Maybe think about, if it is really worth to do some "strategic" move with the <1k games in exchange for the suspension time.

The only shovelware games I won from steamgifts were ones from 2.5, 5 and 7 years ago. Since then I filtered out almost 14000 and counting games. Other won games are either ones I would like to play someday or already did. I restored two missing games thanks to igel, so I suppose I won't encounter any reports. These 2 or so years I enter GAs only when I am certain that someday I will play the game. And if I won't like it, I keep it for another try or for the collection.

P.S. Anyway, thanks for the input, I'll keep an eye on things like this more carefully from now on

Hello, apparently my tired brain (I really shouldn't let it do things when decaffeinated) messed up and for some reason protected my quick GA (just trying to clear out old keys) with SGTools, then didn't use the correct link? To quote the user who brought this to my attention:

"You gave us a direct invite only link instead of a SGTools link. People who entered via direct link marked as invalid entries"

So, reporting to see if the SGTool link can be deactivated or something? Not 100% sure what needs to happen there tbh as I don't typically use SGTools. Sorry for any inconveniences. GA thread here.

SGTools doesn't auto apply infractions, so as long as you don't report the giveaway here and ask to apply infractions, nothing will happen.

So, don't worry :)

Hi knsys, I'm sorry to be a bother but I wanted to ask about a case that's come up. The user had a multiple win infraction that they've since resolved with one win being manually deleted (ie. their win from a multiple copy giveaway was deleted via supermod). They're still showing as having a multiple win infraction despite the deletion being handled 7 months ago. I wanted to ask if this was intentional or a side effect of how the deletion was specifically handled. Let me know if I can help at all and thank you so much for listening, they're quite distressed by the situation so I'd like to do what I can.

Hi PeteOzzy,

That is the side effect of heavy caching to avoid reaching rate limits :)
Old giveaway data is not fully synched and it's just read from cache, but that is not a problem because a user can do a full resync that will reset the cache and fill it with full fresh data. It's as simple as going here

Hello,

Many years ago I won "Duke Nukem 3D" as a gift. However, the key provided actually activated "Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition" ("Duke Nukem 3D" was not available at the store anymore).

Since the game activated was different from the game selected in the giveaway, I got this discrepancy noted as a game not activated.

Some days ago the giveaway was deleted (https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/aUA5G/duke-nukem-3d). However, on SGT it still appears on my account that I did not activated the game, even though the giveaway was deleted.

Please could you check if this is a bug, or the game should be included in the whitelist or if the problem is something else?

Best regards,

I noticed some games I made giveaways for used to be full value on sgtools but now are not, such as Gauntlet. I made a giveaway for that almost 4 years ago. It was finally bundled this year. Did it apply retroactively or is it just a glitch?

If the date of your giveaway is after the date specified in the bundle list, your giveaway is marked as bundled on both Steamgifts and SGTools.

I made the Gauntlet giveaway 4 years before the bundle. Also Call of Duty®: Ghosts giveaway 4 years ago which has never been bundled. And Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition 3 years ago which hasn't been bundled.

I can say that, at least, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition was EXTREMELY cheap (something around $2 ?) on shady shop sites.
I know it because i reported this game but don't question me how many years ago or for which exact date.

As hard as it sounds, and it isn't something against you, but be happy that you had, for so long, more cv from this games as they normaly should gave when sorted in the right category at that time.

Oh and i don't say you had the game(s) from this extremely cheap sources. But other ones bought them there and gifted them on sg -and often far from only one copy-.

So if a game is discovered on grey market selling for 90%+ discount then ALL giveaways for that game, even if it was 10 years ago, also get reduced CV? That doesn't seem fair. How does SG know what the cost of a game was on grey market 4 years ago? My copy of Gauntlet was a steam gift from my steam inventory so grey market prices shouldn't apply.

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

It's mostly 95%, sometimes a bit deeper, but, at least, 91%.

Of course get only the GAs marked as reduced/free that got made after the date of the cheap bundle/cheap selling price in shop XYZ/freebie on site XYZ.
Not all that got ever made for game XYZ.

Sg don't know your source of a key but they know, from own infos, sites like barter, reports etc., if a game were sold cheap in shop XYZ/gifted as freebie on site XYZ, and the date from it. So they pick this date for ALL copies of this game that get made after that date.
They can't question each one for his source of the key and can't check if it would be the truth.

Updating a rule on an ended sgtools GA doesn't reset the check for people who previously entered. The timestamp seems to be wrong also even for new entries?

Comment has been collapsed.

Once a user pass a rule, it has a valid entry. Doesn't matter if you change the rule later, he got a valid entry because he passed the rules that where in place on the time he entered.

Timestamps for entries are correct as far as I know, look closely because they are in UTC (and it's clearly stated).

I'm using an old sgtools GA as an entry check to give away a non-steam key. There are people who entered whose names aren't in the valid entries list. People who never entered before say they got the link instantly and there are no timestamps from yesterday or today. I don't think it's working properly.

Edit: I was looking at Valid entries instead of All entries. Now I can see the names and timestamps. Not sure how some got the link instantly but maybe they thought it was instant when it wasn't?

There seems to be a big bug when looking at real cv sent/won pages that it does not catch all games and misses dozens and even hundreds.
I've tried a force sync which improved the situation but still many are missing and it happens on other profiles as well.
