This has probably been asked before, maybe even by me  :oops: , but is there a way to hide all instances of Early Access games on the Steam front page, even from the featured/splash screen sections?

 

I could swear at one point with ES they were just showing up as blank boxes for me, which I'd still prefer over seeing them. :-P

There used to be an option to hide Early Access titles, but going through the options now it appears to have been removed :-k

The option used to be there to hide the Early Access games from the new releases section.  However, Steam now does this themselves so the feature was removed.

 

They are still shown on the homepage in the carousel, featured tabs, top sellers, coming soon, and specials.

 

Are you saying you'd like a feature that can remove them completely from these sections?

Enhanced Steam for Google Chrome has been updated to version 5.7. Not too many changes this time, as I've mostly been focused on updating the Firefox version this past week. Anyway, the changelog includes:

  • Adds Steam review percentage of most helpful positive and negative reviews on app pages
  • "Hide -> DLC for games you do not own" now works with the new releases section on the homepage
  • Added new option to hide owned games on the homepage
  • Added Square Enix and Bundle Stars sites to price history information
  • Price history now shows for all apps on a store page, not just the first
  • Fixed a bug that caused early access banners on the "featured" section to not position correctly
  • Fixed a bug that caused regional pricing on sale pages to sometimes display incorrectly
  • Fixed a bug that broke formatting on badge page when crafting badges in certain situations

This version should update to all users within the next 60 minutes. As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.

For those interested, I've updated Enhanced Steam Standalone which now has a traditional setup application.

You can download Enhanced Steam from

http://www.EnhancedS...alone/setup.exe

And run it. Once installed, run the program and (hopefully) everything in your client should now be Enhanced!

I can't get this to work for me. Using Windows 7 64 bit. No idea what's wrong. When I start it, it says "Not Enhanced", and the Steam client won't load sites while it's active

Yes please. Steam's not showing Early Access is pretty limited and I'd rather just have them entirely hidden personally.

Usually this means that something else on your computer is using port 80.  The usual offenders are things like Skype and the Windows Web Publishing Service.  The version I'm working on now will attempt to detect if something besides Enhanced Steam is running on port 80 and help you troubleshoot disabling the offending service.

I'll see what I can do.  Since Valve is pushing Early Access games pretty hard, this option could lead to a very empty homepage.  For example: http://i.imgur.com/i8wpgYj.png

This is caused by a corrupt browser profile in Chrome.  If you follow these directions, it should be back to normal.

I'm using the chrome version of the extension, and ever since a few weeks ago, when I try to look at the net steam wallet gained from my market transactions, it shows  0.00 for purchase total, sales total, and net spent

There is currently a bug with this feature.  Valve changed the API and now limits it to 1,000 transactions (possibly due to Enhanced Steam?)  So hopefully it will be updated in the next version to work again.

I just uploaded a new version of Enhanced Steam for Firefox to Mozilla.

The version is 5.7, and it adds a lot more features (and a few more options) from the Chrome version. With any luck, Mozilla will approve this update quickly. When they do, I'll make a formal announcement at that time.

2. Broke browser locale. After install browser can't be fully localized by lang pack

Jshackels,

 

Hey, I wanted to once again thank you for all your hard work on Enhanced Steam...  It really makes browsing the store easier.  I'm also curious if your interested in suggestions for new features...?  If so I have one:

 

I was looking through a CAG's wishlist to see if I had any of the games in my inventory so we could make a quick and simple trade and I got to think...  "Man, I wish ES would display games in my inventory while browsing through someone's wish list and/or the store."

 

I have no idea how simply and/or complex this suggestion is... but suspect it might be the later.  :(

 

Anyhow, thanks again for awesomeness that is enhanced steam. :)

That's actually already a feature, you just need to set the option for ES to tag/highlight games stored as gifts:

Okay...  Where is that screen from?  Looking inside Add-On (Firefox) I have the option to change the color on games I own and those on my wishlist.

That's a screenshot of the Chrome options menu. I'm guessing this is one of the differences between versions.

Yeah, there seems to be allot of differences between the two platforms...  Chrome looks to have far more features in the minute or so I've looked at it. 

 

Guess I need to use Chrome for my steam browsing.

I used FireFox/Aurora for the better parts of 7 years. This past year I made the fairly permanent switch to chrome all because of ES. I had issues with Chrome (and it's lack of add-ons/features that I use in FF) in the past, but it seems fairly comparable now. I'm not a huge fan of Google (as it seems to be heading down a similar path as Apple with it's integration and acquisitions), but Chrome hasn't presented me with any problems to date.

I'll see how it goes...  For now since I'm always losing my steam tab (for other uses) having it in its own browser has some appeal but lets see how it goes when I start to get lazy.

 

I do have one question...  On items I have both a gift copy and actually own it the green/own background is replaced by the gift background.  Is that a bug or did I do something wrong?

I'm not sure if it's be a bug as you can only have one color highlighting, so I guess 'gift' is taking precedence. I have mine set to highlight what I own or have wishlisted, but to tag what others own/want and what I have in my gift inventory.

Yeah, the Chrome version is where all of the development takes place, mostly due to Google's policy of speedy deployment.  Where it usually only takes about 60 minutes (or less) to have an update pushed out on Chrome, an update to Firefox may take days or weeks, sometimes a month or more for them to approve.

 

However, I feel like the Chrome plugin is in a good spot at the moment (save for a few bug fixes and things) and am working hard to port as many features over to Firefox as possible.  I'm also working on changes to the desktop version of Enhanced Steam, and there is a Safari port in the works as well.  Busy busy.

Encountered a small bug.  Using the Chrome version, though I'm guessing it's not specific to the platform.

I just finished getting my card drops for Freedom Fall.  One of the cards I gained is titled "This Way <3" and that one alone doesn't highlight with green in the Market.  I assume this is due to there being a less-than in its name, probably being interpreted as code.  Clearing cached data did nothing.

 

Thanks as always for all the work you've put into this!

I'll check it out, should be able to get it updated for the next release.

 

Today I've been working on this:

Will be hidden by default, but will allow you to further customize your search results by putting in the relevant price range you're looking for.

So I guess I was kinda talking out my ass when I said I wouldn't be adding any new features to the Chrome version for a while.

Which I think would be a little more helpful if there were better mobile support. ;)

 

I'm still using an obscure old version of Opera with a way outdated version of ES on Android because that's the only combination I can get to work on mobile.
