I'd love for the external links on enhanced steam's user pages to link to the TF2 backpacks. Maybe use optf2.com, since its officially sponsored by the TF2 wiki.

Currently it links to backpack.tf but optf2.com could be added pretty easily though.

Any chance that you put a link to the steam users profile in http://www.achievementstats.com/?

Also I dont see anyone mention this, check on this image

It shows total spent in dollars only. Could you make it to summarize in other currencies too?

That's a pretty cool site, might see if it can be added thanks!

Also for the total spent in non-dollars, it's currently a bug ( listed in the OP ;) ) so I'm working on it and hopefully will have it sorted out soon enough.

I must have missed that in known bugs, I thought I read carefully through the thread :P

Version 2.8 has been released to Google Chrome. Firefox update coming soon, though unfortunately many of the new features will not be possible in Firefox.

Actually, the script started out as a Greasemonkey script. :) The reason I say that some features can't be ported to firefox is that firefox doesn't allow cross-domain scripting in their addons, and as far as I can tell, neither does Greasemonkey. So if something on the store page needs to access something from the community page, it can't and vice versa. So things like highlighting the games you own on your wishlist simply won't be possible in Firefox I'm afraid.

I really thought "4chan x" greasemonkey script could do cross-domain.
Also I'm useing FF 20.0.1 and nothing works on Enhanced Steam 2.1.

I got two suggestions on improvements.
It's about the spotlight deals (midweek and weekend deals).
1. Could you make the entire box for the prev/next links clickable?
2. Highlight if you already own the game.

Hi, first of all I love that extensions its pretty badass :)

But I have noticed a bug.

On the first page you have "special deals" tab, and it's showing 10 games per "page". On the first page everything is fine, games already owned are highlighted in green but if after switching to next page it doesn't :( (I'd love to show screenshot but new users cant post links... :()

Once again thanks for a SUPER FREE EXTENSION :D

Yeah I'm working on some of the underlying javascript to see if I can get this to work. The problem is that Valve loads these results with Ajax, so those aren't loaded when the page is first loaded (thus they're not checked / colored). I'm hoping to get this sorted out in the next release finally, but we'll see. :)

After quite a bit of wait (sorry) Version 3.0 for Google Chrome is now available. This version should fix the last couple of reported issues in regard to scrolling AJAX results. It should also fix wishlist detection for everyone, show stacked coupon discounts, and more.

Here is the changelog:

  • Fixed wishlist detection for non-English users
  • Coupon discounts now stack where applicable (most currencies)
  • Options page changed from dropdown boxes to check boxes
  • Added a link for AchievementStats.com
  • Some AJAX loaded content now correctly highlights (still not in search yet)

In my testing, the options from the old page all carried over correctly, but if something doesn't look right check the options page. ;)

Thank you for your work! I appreciate the extension. I have a very annoying error when viewing wishlists since the 3.0 update:

The red boxes are where my avatar appears. It has a space to write a recommendation under all green games (ones I own); the error doesn't appear on the titles I don't own.

  • Re-wrote price tab which now shows current best and historical best deals.
  • Added price tab to game bundles.

isthereanydeal? Ugh. They list Nuuvem which I don't consider to be a legitimate retailer for people residing outside of South America as their terms of service (in Portugese) explicitly states you must be a resident of South America.

Is there some way to filter that out or turn off the non-Steam pricing I guess if I can't filter just Nuuvem out?

Personally I prefer Steamgamesales. Was there some issue with them beyond not catching Amazon prices?

I was able to work with IsThereAnyDeal to set up a web API that Enhanced Steam can use to pull the pricing data directly rather than load it from another page and scrape it. In the next version, I'm planning on adding additional deal tracking sites to the history so I can likely add SteamGameSales back (sadly, as just a link).

I've been working with Valve to get the detection process sped up, and they've added a few things to their API that deliver just that.

Are you talking about the somewhat-documented Community API (which I wish had GetOwnedDLC and IEconItems_753 methods) or one of the other undocumented (as far as I am aware) APIs?
Selling Steam key: Race The Sun $1.20 (Cards) & Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine $0.80 (Cards) (Or both for $1.80.)

I'm not sure if it's documented in most places (since they added new methods specifically to make Enhanced Steam better) but I am using the Storefront API, specifically the AppUserDetails.

http://store.steampo...etails/?appids= (whatever the appID is)

So for example if you own Bioshock Infinite, http://store.steampo...ls/?appids=8870 should return "is_owned":true at the end of the JSON string.

Feel free to PM me or add me on Steam if you need more clarification.

I've got a major bug to report.

Recently Steam page with ur addon turned ON has gone crazy. I cannot see any tab on the first page "New" nor "Bestsellers" - nothing - its just blank. I also cannot use Steam search - it doesnt find any games in store (I have to use google). There are also some bugs like this. When I clean my cache & cookies everything seems to go back to normal but after some time it's the same crap again (and i dont want to delete cookies everydea :( ). h_T_T_p://scr.hu/0eva/8zn08 - here's the screen (just delete _)

Maybe its on my side?

Thanks for the addon and keep the good work up :)

That's a very weird error. If the stuff starts disappearing, and you disable Enhanced Steam (Menu -> Extensions -> Uncheck box next to Enhanced Steam) and reload the Steam store, do the items come back?

In the Enhanced Steam menu at the top of each Steam page, there is a drop down menu. Once things start disappearing, if you select "Clear cached data" from that Enhanced Steam drop down, do they come back?

Finally, what language are you using? That may have something to do with it.

Let me know and I'll see what I can find out. :)

Okay but that doesn't really address the whole questionable nature of some of the sites they track like Nuuvem. They also track deals that are blocked for certain regions, ie even set to US isthereanydeal will track Ubisoft deals from GetGamesGo and Greenmangaming even though both of those retailers are not authorized by Ubisoft to sell to the US and in fact will block US buyers from buying during those sales.

I guess I will just turn price tracking off because isthereanydeal is pretty useless to me with tracking pricing for things I either shouldn't be buying or can't buy.

*Edited to add: It still would be nice to have the ability to leave the price history for just Steam sales on while turning the other retailers history off.

I totally get ya. :) I'm going to be working some more with the admin from IsThereAnyDeal and we're going to set it up so the user can determine which stores they would like to see deals from. This would be set in the options. The default will probably be "All" but you could uncheck that then select just the stores you want to see such as Steam, Amazon US, etc.

Hope this helps. :D

EDIT: The stores and their checkboxes would look something like this: http://isthereanydea.../page:web/stats

That would be quite nice, yes.

There's still a bit of an issue for me that I'd want to see GGG and GMG deals that are actually valid for the US but not the ones that aren't but I don't know if those guys have a good way to filter that sort of thing out.

Hi,

Great work!

A couple of things:

-If I have chrome/tools/extensions set at 110% Zoom (or above) and try to change Enhanced Steam's options, the save button doesn't trigger.

-Free to play games are showing up highlighted the same as owned games. Am I missing an option to turn that part off or to change the color?

Edit: I see you got my Dark Souls e-mail. Enjoy.

Cheers!

Yeah, this is a bug in the current version I'm going to be releasing an interim version 3.1.1 to fix it. Stay tuned!

-Free to play games are showing up highlighted the same as owned games. Am I missing an option to turn that part off or to change the color?


This has to do with the Storefront API being used. Valve marks all Free-to-Play games as "owned" so they're being highlighted by the extension. I'll see if I can create an option to stop it from doing that.

Edit: I see you got my Dark Souls e-mail. Enjoy.

Thanks so much! Makes me wish I wasn't traveling this weekend for Mother's Day.

i seem to have a bug.

sometimes when i go to the steam website the extension doesn't kick in. It doesn't show me what i own, on my wishlist, or what people wish for. after a few refreshes of the steam website everything seems to work

it was happening in 3.0 but seems to have gotten worse in 3.1

also, i dont think its my extensions because i recently reformatted because i didn't do it awhile and i still had issues
