    Just to clarify, this is no longer a service that requires payment. You can try it out right now, just click here



    If you're in the 'rip off trading' circles, you're probably aware of the two major 'server scanners' out there at the moment. There's Up To No Good, a great scanner made by Hideous, which unfortunately flops because of it's lack of resources on Google's Appspot platform. There's also the popular scanner made by Jessecar96, the downside to this is that the 'cost' is a Bill's hat, which may deter some people just getting into this.

    As a result, and at the request of a few friends, I've made a competitor of my own.

    After feedback in this thread, I've decided that Facepunch users should be granted free activation, as the payment system is certainly flawed. Click here to activate your account.

    You may be wondering "Okay, this is great, but what does it do differently to the other scanners out there?". There are many answers to that question.

    1) The scanner is hosted on a dedicated machine, running nothing much other than this scanner. The last patch of downtime on this server was in December, when a full reinstall was required. The scanner will be there when you need it.

    2) The scanner is lightning fast. Expect a 32 man server scan to take less than 3-4 seconds.




    ---

    Thanks for reading this, and I look forward to any feedback.

    @Mods: I read the rules sticky for this board and saw nothing relating to topics of this variety, I didn't want to clutter up the rip-off trading thread any more than it is already, so I created a new thread. I hope that this is okay. Thanks.

    I wouldn't mind beta testing as I'm on TF2 for 6-10 hours a day and I use the Jessecar96 scanner on a daily basis as well.

    depending on how much you 'pay', you get x amount of lookups per day, making this platform perfect for those only just wanting to get started with the art of rip off trading.
    Wow, that sucks. My scanner is free, for everyone, which would work out well if it wasn't so darn popular and if people would just fucking donate instead of adding me as a friend and whining.

    Sorry, needed to vent a bit

    I like your scam score stuff, but I hope it can be disabled and only show the tf2 time.

    I completely understand where you're coming from; I'm considering a free option with 5 or so lookups a day, which keeps the server from being hammered, while also giving those who want to try it out a chance to do so.

    I'd really considered going completely free on this. But the problem with that is the sheer amount of data that would be travelling back and forth between the site and the Steam API servers. The notion of having to 'invest' should keep this from being a problem. For now.

    The payment aspect really is there to hold back people from hammering the service more than it is for me to gain free hats.

    The above statement is now irrelevant. All Facepunch users have been granted access to the service. Click here to begin.

    Could you list them? The only web based one I'm aware of is UTNG.

    Also it's amazing how you can compare something you've never used to another product. That's quite a skill.

    Like everyone gives a shit about the economy the trading rules should have stayed the same as they stayed when trading was released when i traded that hound dog for a max head no one ever said something in that server that i was.

    But noo... let's pay 80$ dollars for a virtual item that doesn't give you any fucking advantage.

    I used to scam, yes. What I mean is, people are trying to make the scanners for only people who have been here for awhile. AKA, not noob-friendly. Well, my last argument about this went on for pages for those people, so let's leave it alone.

    I believe Jesse's scanner only became pay-to-use just recently, all the current users get to keep it, which is quite a lot.

    I understand how it can become annoying to get only ungreatfulness(EI: Like Pizzaboys post) and nothing in return for spending time developing it. I do think it should just remain free at this point, and the log-in system removed, but It's up to him what he want to do with it.

    I don't scam, but if you guys really get pissy over paying to use scanners, do it the old and long way.
    Typing everyone's steam name into tf2b or something.

    How about you download the scanner instead? I use it without any problems. Also, I don't know how your gonna have a good argument if you can't even spell properly or write text that isn't an eyesore to read.

    Well show me that you did because the empty boxes I see up there say otherwise, Mr. Baseless Claims.

    I think I'll stick with Jesse's downloadable scanner that has gotten me about 6 buds over the amount of time I've had it. (Since V9-10)
