    What are other params that make textmode take up less resources?
    I've noticed that after adding -32bit, -single_core, -width and -height and basically pasting everything into the params like a monkey with a wrench, it runs at least 10 times better. Like, I can idle with all 4 accounts and play at the same time, whereas before I had to dedicate my entire PC to 3.
    At this point of time after about an hour I can get each game to run at 200-300mbs so I can run 16 at once. I've made a script so I can automate it all and run all programs needed for memory cleaning and lower system resources also to control activity on steam like exiting and restarting TF2 in a mode where I can trade.

    Edit:
    This is my parameter list too:
    -applaunch 440 -32bit -textmode +exec idle.cfg -single_core -low -nosound -sw -width 640 -height 480 -noshader -nopix -novid -nopreload -replay_enable 0 +sv_password 1234 -sw +map itemtest +maxplayers 2 -heapsize 131072

    For some reason whenever I try starting the things up is always asks me to download TF2.

    I've tested all the accounts and I can start up TF2 just fine.

    Anyone know what the problem is?

    Thanks in advance.

    I find it best to make a .bat file to login to TF2 on one of the idle accounts with a sandbox with access to the main steamapps folder. If verifying it doesn't work just delete your current tf2 files and paste the ones from your main steam folder.

    Sorry, I don't quite understand...

    I've made 3 .bats.
    With those .bats I am able to successfully login on each account.

    However once I login it asks me to download TF2.


    What do you mean by "verifying it"?

    Ok. You don't need to make 3 bats. You can combine them all so it looks like this.

    Ignore the ping 127.0.0.1 # >nul
    Also to verify go to properties> Local files> Verify integrity of game cache.

    Should I verify on all of my accounts?

    Or is 1 account good enough?

    Edited:

    @DeltaEcho,

    I know it's asking for a lot, but would it be too much to guide me through chat or some sort? I have absolutely no idea what to do.

    It's fine if you don't want to.

    Just verify 1 account and sure just add me on steam.

    That is my script for 4 idle accounts. I can happily post my one for 3 batches of idles. Just ask.
    You will need this program to use this script to it's full potential.

    Yes it should be fine as long as all payments are sent in gifts.

    Ok, so I'm having a little trouble.

    I bought a $50 debit card to use to make the accounts premium.

    I've used the card on 2 idle accounts already, but now nothing will validate my card.

    When I try adding money on my 3rd idle account, I get an error.

    I tried sending money to a PayPal account from the debit card, but that was rejected, too.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you for contacting Steam Support.

    Our system is not set up to support this activity. You will need to complete your purchases from a single Steam account.

    We will not be able to unlock this account for purchasing or remove the limitations on this copy of Team Fortress 2. Any purchases through the Mann Co. Store will need to be made on your primary Steam Account.

    We understand that this is an inconvenience, but we will not be able to assist you.

    I tried making PayPal accounts out of desperation but for some reason it declines my card...

    I still have a good $40 on it. O____O

    (Basically what I'm attempting to do with PayPal is multiple accounts and I send $5 from my main account to every account)

    It seems that my local prepaid cards are a total bust. There's no way I can upgrade 20ish accounts by Christmas.

    Do you guys know any premium tf2 sellers around? Can you guide me through with some details?

    Think about it this way.

    There's no rush in making your accounts premium.

    Just idle on them for now, and when they become premium you can still trade the items.

    I think I might get like 10 more accounts.

    I'm regretting my numbering of accounts, it's getting confusing. I started at 9000 (never expected the account to be used, it was just a troll account at that point), and then when some bugs started happening with upgrading accounts, I jumped to 10000, then accidentally made a 1001. I have to go organize some stuff.

    Hey, if you're waiting for the the limit to wear off (which is seems to, eventually), you should continue idling with that account even while it's F2P. Then you'll have some metal by the time you can upgrade.

    ok I know this question should belong in the computing/hardware section but it's kinda specific.

    anybody here know a good portable hard drive that I could use to idle run the idle accounts? I heard stories of certain hard drives going to sleep and canceling all running programs (which is bad for overnight idling or if you are afk). would it be cheaper just to buy an internal hard drive?

    sorry

    I don't trade, so i don't care about craft numbers. Just want 1 of every item. (but, when i do need to trade (ie. damn haunted scottish snarl) i have plenty of booty)

    yet, i have considered trying to craft 1 of every hat so all my hats say "crafted by noochbot". haven't seen anyone else do that yet?

    So is there nothing I can do?

    How did you make 200+ accounts premiuim?
    You need to read the thread. i posted this already and only 1 page back...

    The answer to many questions is already explicity stated on Steam:

    "Can I use a gift card or virtual card?
    It is possible to order through Steam with a gift card from one of the credit card issuers listed above, however, the card needs to be one that can be used to make online purchases and we require that the address information and security code for the card be an exact match to the gift card or virtual card issuer's system.

    We recommend that you inquire with the card issuer to ensure you can use the card to make online purchases and have the correct address and security code to complete the transaction. In some cases you can register your billing address through the gift card company's website."

    I posted about this previously too. For about 10 weeks, from Dec 2009 to March 2010, i was on a quest for all 36 hats. Each day i checked my 12 computers, added up all the drops, then went to the Steam group and typed a historical note for anyone curious about the original drop system. Once I had all 36 hats (ie after 73 days) i stopped playing TF2 until the Mannconomy hit in Oct 2010.

    I don't add those comments anymore considering my Army has grown from 12 to 265. I do plan to do something with "http://steamcommunity.com/id/nooch###/inventoryhistory/" URL. Starting september 2011 99.9% of all drops have been traded 1st to my "noochbot" account. so, maybe christmas break i'll do something with that data.

    You did?
    Anyway was just wondering since someone posted that it was reported automatically every time an account got a hat.

    On another note.
    I am trying to make an actual program for setup and idle.
    Would be really nice in my opinion and I can ditch the .bat scripts. Don't expect it to soon since I have to move and I also have a job and whatnot now.
    If anyone has any suggestions for the program please post it. I've already got a setup script in .bat form. So far it is turning out pretty nice.

    I don't trade, so i don't care about craft numbers. Just want 1 of every item. (but, when i do need to trade (ie. damn haunted scottish snarl) i have plenty of booty)

    yet, i have considered trying to craft 1 of every hat so all my hats say "crafted by noochbot". haven't seen anyone else do that yet?
    I have not seen that done before, that sounds like a really cool goal.
    Also, I'm sure the world thanks you for not trading, otherwise you would have everything.

    Edited:

    Don't forget to disable steam overlay on your idling accounts for a slight performance boost.

    Edited:

    This is my parameter list too:
    I do this, without the idle.cfg and replay_enable 0 and get anywhere from 300 mb to 700 mb.
    What's in the idle.cfg?

    I find that I get lower mem usuage when not running in textmode oddly. so through task manager I can end the steam overlay?

    Oh, I customized my idle.cfg a little bit. Not sure if it does make a difference at all. But it's in there.
    //custom commands
    r_fastzreject 1
    mat_disable_bloom 1
    mat_specular 0
    r_3dsky 0
    r_dynamic 0
    r_shadows 0
    mat_dxlevel 81
    muzzleflash_light 0
    cl_ejectbrass 0
    cl_show_splashes 0
    r_decals 0
    mp_decals 0
    r_drawmodeldecals 0
    r_waterforceexpensive 0
    r_waterforcereflectentities 0
    r_drawdetailprops 0
    cl_phys_props_enable 0
    cl_ragdoll_collide 0
    cl_ragdoll_fade_time 0
    cl_ragdoll_physics_enable 0
    cl_forcepreload 1
    mat_picmip 10
    mat_showlowresimage 1
    mat_bumpmaps 0
    Just try it out.
    Also with the GUI program I am making it might not be done until January since I have to teach myself Visual Basics and memorize all the parameters.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I find that I get lower mem usuage when not running in textmode oddly. so through task manager I can end the steam overlay?
    It might not use more RAM but it will use more GPU usage.

    Alright just checked my other computer and TF2 was running at 150mbs each!
    New record for me :)

    Have you created a different steam folder for each account?
    Most of the time people are trying to run steam off of 1 folder and not separate ones.

    Same. But weird, it worked some weeks ago.
    O well I'll do that now.
    So I only have to copy Steam + Steamapps with tf2 inside new folder?

    Copy steam.exe from one folder into the next and then run it. It will download all the files needed to run steam. Once that is done you will have to mklink everything again.
