Well, Streats of Rage 2, yes. No trick. They both just appeared in my library after I gave Sony permission to activate games on my Steam account.

If you have Steam Achievement Manager installed all you need to do is make sure you have the Steam client running & signed in to your account, then just run SAM & double click on the game in the list to open the achievements window for it and at that point it will be idling the game & recording playtime. Just leave the game's achievement window open until you want to stop.

Not sure if you figured it out but you aren't supposed to type in the ASF console but in steam chat. It only works when you have multiple accounts (or you have a friend that you trust to mark as "owner" so that he can chat with you). Just write from the "owner" account to the bot account "!play appid" and the bot will play the game, writing "!play ASF appid" runs that on all bots including the owner if you're running it in ASF too.

it also works if you only have one account, if you have your own group you can use the chat group to use the commands (basically talk to yourself XD).

As long as you can send commands through chat (like !loot or !redeem) it should just work with !play ASF appid. You can also just add "GamesPlayedWhileIdle": [appid or multiple separated with coma] to the config file of each bot you want to farm in and it will work without doing any commands but I find !play easier as I don't have to change the config later.

Well not really sure about that, I mean the only reason I know how this works is because I've been following ASF since the start and even before that I had my own bot which worked similarly to that since I got inspired to make something like Archi's bot before he released ASF. But even then the commands like !loot/!redeem/!play are main part of ASF there are a bunch of them here. If you use multiple bots there's no way you didn't use those stuff, I mean redeeming keys and getting the cards is so much easier like this instead of having to login to each bot account every time you can just control them through chat.

Well, I decided to idle CoH2 in the background, to help out, as I don't have the other games.
But seeing that after 1,5 of the 24 hours barely 8000 of the required 500.000 hours are played, my hopes are not up.
At this rate, the total would not even amount 200.000 hours, so let's hope when more countries wake up the numbers rise way faster
EDIT: My hopes went up, in the last 10 minutes over 2000 hours were played. (as oppposed to less than 100 per 10 minutes before)

It's been a while since I walked somebody through setting up ASF or set up mine so I have already forgotten a lot of things and a lot has changed since then but I'll try my best ;)

2 questions: Are you running more that 1 account so you can give commands via chat without the Steam group workaround ?

Does ASF already recognize commands (when you send them to one of your bots via Steam chat)? You can test by trying some simple command like checking what ASF is currently doing with the command:

!sa

which is the short version of the command

!status ASF

quick readup might be best

Yeah, that would probably be best. But basically I think you just need to set your Main as Master in the config of your alt. (At least it used to be like that when I set up mine but I think Archie simplyfied it so some commands work without Master set.)

But MysteriousMrX just posted a workaround below that should work without ASF recognizing commands. You just need to add an extra line to the config files of the bots with text editor ;)

5 months ago*
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

[Edited to make it more comprehensive]

If you don't have ASF set up to take commands:

Whatever directory ASF is installed in will contain a config directory.

In that directory will be a number of .json files (if you don't have your computer set up to show file extensions, and aren't comfortable working with a simple text editor like NotePad, you should probably avoid doing this: programs like Word can add extra characters/hidden formatting characters when you save, or change the file extension without you knowing it).
ASF usually has ASF.json [the overall program configuration file], example.json, and minimal.json.
You'll also have a bunch of other .json files that should correspond to the name of accounts you've set up bots for (a main bot and alt bots).

For each of those accountname.json files, open the file in a text editor like NotePad (I'm using NotePad++. For NotePad, you'll have to change it to look for any extension vs just .txt files to see the .json files).

Add this line to the .json configuration of a particular account (this will idle Company of Heroes 2 [appid 231430] but you can idle one of the other eligible games if you prefer.

"GamesPlayedWhileIdle": [231430],

If you're adding it as the final line, you don't need to have the comma at the end, but there should be one before it:

,"GamesPlayedWhileIdle": [231430]

[From what I understand, ASF does allow the GamesPlayedWhileIdle function to idle up to 32 games at once, but I don't know how SEGA is counting up the play hours—or if they're on the lookout for 'fraud'—and since a part of signing up included giving them API access to our accounts, I'm not idling multiple games at once.]

So here's what a complete .json file might look like depending on what options you've configured before:

{"name":"BotName","SteamLogin":"SteamAccountName","SteamPassword":"SteamAccountPassword","Enabled":true,"Paused":false,"PasswordFormat":0,"AutoDiscoveryQueue":true,"FarmOffline":false,"GamesPlayedWhileIdle": [231430],"IsBotAccount":true}

The above was for an alt account, so "IsBotAccount": is set to true, for the main account you can leave that line out altogether:

{"name":"BotName","SteamLogin":"SteamAccountName","SteamPassword":"SteamAccountPassword","Enabled":true,"Paused":false,"PasswordFormat":0,"AutoDiscoveryQueue":true,"FarmOffline":false,"GamesPlayedWhileIdle": [231430]}

Save the file (should save as a simple text file with .json extension), and whenever you don't have cards to farm, ASF should idle the game you chose.

ASF won't appear to be doing anything, but if you check your profile—use a browser, not the Steam client—it should show you in game Company of Heroes 2 (or whatever game you chose).

If this didn't work, check the config directory, and make sure the .json file didn't wind up saved as botname.json.txt (If so, you likely have botname.json [the old version of the file], and botname.json.txt [the newly edited version] in that directory, and will have to delete or rename the botname.json file to something like botname.json.old [don't try something like botnameold.json, otherwise ASF will try and run it as another bot], then rename the botname.json.txt to botname.json.

Remember to take "GamesPlayedWhileIdle": [231430] out after the event, otherwise you'll be idling the game anytime you don't have any cards to farm!

The problem of this is if you only have one account and have cards to farm you have to wait until all cards to drop.

Other way to get the ASF command would be through a steam group.
So if you have your own steam group you can use the chat group to use the commands, all you need to do its to add "SteamMasterClanID" to your bot file and "SteamOwnerID" to ASF.json

5 months ago*
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

in case some one wants to use the group chat to use asf commands here is what each config mean

Add to ASF.json
"SteamOwnerID" :YourSteamID64

Add to your bot file
"SteamMasterClanID" :Code

Finding the Code for "SteamMasterClainID"
add "/memberslistxml/?xml=1" to the end of your group url
exemple using ASF Group http://steamcommunity.com/groups/ascfarm
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/ascfarm/memberslistxml/?xml=1
copy the first code, in this case the code is 103582791440160998 yours will be diferent

now every time you execute asf.exe you will automatically join your group chat and be able to use asf commands

I don't think you have to play one of their games to get the free ones. You just have to register on their website (you get Revenge of Shinobi and Streets of Rage 2), then hope that the active players will unlock the daily rewards for everyone, players or "leechers".

All you need to do is SIGN UP (and get two free SEGA Mega drive titles from the outset!) and then play any one (or more) of the MWNL feature titles. Your play hours throughout the MWNL event will then be added to the combined communities total play hours. If the communities combined efforts achieve the daily hour target**, a free prize bundle will be unlocked for everyone!

You play ? Your play hours will be added to the score and help the community.
You don't play ? You get the rewards anyway ("If the communities combined efforts achieve the daily hour target**, a free prize bundle will be unlocked for everyone!")

Company of Heroes, the first one? Yeah, good, the rest, unobtainable or not interested in. I did get the two sega classics, didnt at first but do now. So i dont have to play then, alright, good, because the last time i played CoH2, made me never, ever want to play it again, horrible online expierience man, just years ago when Company of Heroes Online Free to play beta was a thing, just not good for casuals man...and dont have to pick teams this time either, alright, thanks.

I might be wrong though, but if I know how to read, we'll get those games anyway (at least if the active players reach the goal, and they sure will).
CoH2 is that bad ? Did you try the solo campaign (no interest in multi) ? I'll have to give it a chance when my backlog allows it. The first one was okay. The first one were given for free, like the 2nd by the way. A good game, but a repeat gift from Sega :p

Nyes, wel get them anyway i think and feel like from what this read suggests. CoH2..... its something of a game, regarded worse than the first and my expierience...wasnt pleasant...i didnt try the solo campaign because i...just wasnt interested and still arent...its not starcraft or warcraft or even c&c, you know, unique settings and factions, its WWII and im just not interested for some reason, i played in multi and my expierience was harsh, hard, unforgivable, bad, the game is old and veterans have remained who will obliterated you within minutes, its insane, as if the insane amount of managing, the worst ive seen in a RTS wasnt bad enough, you got these players who know too well how to use what specific unit and where and when, and when they get their first tank, its practicaly game over, their ahead of you, their too fast.... i....wouldnt waste time or space on it if i was you...maybe with friends but not with randos mate, avoid online if you go for it..... mmhm, the first one is the best one they say and i have to agree with that. I dont remember the 1st one being given away for free but i did grab the second for free from alienware, thats why i even have it. Yes, as a game...its not the worst as a built games i guess...but...just...not the pleasant of user expieriences to be had, no, its quite hardcore, intimidating greatly, worth avoiding unless you want to play it in a specific way that doesnt include random online i suppose...nyeah, repeats from Sega again, Binary Domain for example...they dont care or they care for those who missed out, either way wish there was more to compensate for repeats. But you got a backlog. Definetly put it above this game, youre not losing out on anything, no casuals like myself to be fought.

Well, basically the biggest issue with multiplayers games that don't separate players in categories. If you missed the boat and come a year after the other ones, you will get nothing but tears and pain against those PGM and zergs.
But since I don't play multi, that's not an issue for me. I might try it someday...well, probably in 2020 or so. I'll try to continue the first one before, let's say 2019 for it.

Continue the first one? Better that than 2 mate, where everything went to shit.
