ASF is a C# application that allows you to farm steam cards using multiple steam accounts simultaneously. Unlike Idle Master which works only for one account at given time, requires steam client running in background, and launches additional processes imitating "game playing" status, ASF doesn't require any steam client running in the background, doesn't launch any additional processes and is made to handle unlimited steam accounts at once. In addition to that, it's meant to be run on servers or other desktop-less machines, and features full cross-OS support, which makes it possible to launch on any .NET Core-supported operating system, such as Windows, Linux or OS X. ASF is possible thanks to gigantic amount of work done in marvelous SteamKit2 library.

ASF doesn't require and doesn't interfere in any way with Steam client. In addition to that, it doesn't require exclusive access to given account, which means that you can use your main account in Steam client, and use ASF for idling the same account at the same time. If you decide to launch a game, ASF will get disconnected, and resume idling once you finish playing your game, being as transparent as possible during entire process.


Core features

  • Automatic idling of available games with card drops using any number of active accounts
  • No requirement of running or even having official Steam client installed
  • Guarantee of being VAC-free
  • Complex error-reporting mechanism, allowing ASF to be smart and resume idling even in case of Steam or networking problems
  • Customizable cards idling algorithm which will push performance of card drops to the maximum
  • Offline idling, allowing you to skip in-game status and stop confusing your friends
  • Advanced support for alt accounts, including ability to redeem keys, redeem gifts, accept trades and more through a simple Steam chat
  • Support for latest Steam security features, including SteamGuard, SteamParental and two-factor authentication
  • Unique ASF 2FA mechanism allowing ASF to act as a mobile authenticator (if needed)
  • StreamTradeMatcher integration allowing ASF to help you in completing your steam badges by accepting dupe trades
  • Rebased on .NET Core 2.0, cross-OS compatibility, official support for Windows, Linux and OS X

Hello, I have translation problem - just a mess of unread text. Here screen https://imgur.com/a/KumxufH I am using version 3.4.2.2, Windows 7 in russian language and setup "CurrentCulture" as "ru". How to fix it?

Похоже на проблемы с кодировкой. Проверьте что в Панель управления -> Региональные настройки -> Дополнительно -> Язык программ не использующих Юникод стоит русский язык. Названия пунктов писал по памяти, возможно немного не так называются, но думаю найдёте.

If your OS is already in Russian then I have no clue why you changed CurrentCulture in the first place, just remove it.

If your OS isn't in Russian then very likely you're missing extra console fonts to display cyrilic characters properly, you can probably find some pack on google regarding this.

In any case this is nothing to fix in ASF, it's your OS not being capable to display characters in the culture you're using properly.

Tried already remove CurrentCulture - dont work. I installed some extra fonts - still dont work. But I found fix: need right click on ASF window in top, select properties, go to fonts tab and change default font. In my case was needed just change font (btw, its called Terminal) size.

Thank you for the great work

i'm just wondering if we can idle many games in the same time
(idle master was running each 30 games in the same time)

also i have noticed that i only get card drop after i close the game (close ASF in this way)
so is there any way to make the bot changes the game it idle each 5-10 minutes?

Thanks again
