Could you walk me through if I have any trouble setting it up?
I'm so sorry I haven't been able to test it out myself because I have to pack my house up :/
Gift cards work the same as Visa's as long as the are usable online. They are limited to 2 accounts.
If it isn't released bug free within the next day or so I can't upload it for another week. Since I have a 3 day car trip to the other side of Australia.
Hopefully I will be able to work on the fully implanted GUI so you don't have to go into each .bat file. But still don't expect it soon.
I believe there is a script I posted in the thread with is basically what this does. Except it is used in CMD.
Just to say I am only 13. It is hard to hold my concentration for 15-16 hours at a time like this.
I'm learning as much as I can and working as fast I can. I can't do much more. So sorry.
Well at least you're being productive
I'll try to annoy you as little as possible. Why can't I add you.. friend invites fail.
Is something going on with Steam Trading? After about 2 weeks ago, every time I trade with myself on my idle account or a different computer, Steam Trade fails once I select any item or go to any page. Steam Trade completely hangs and I can't even close down the trade box and ends up with "The trading session has expired" on my main account. I never experienced this before.
It never happens when I trade with other people, only my own accounts. And I even used a different computer! Which is the weirdest thing.
Issue found, ObjectDock.
How would I write a .bat file that runs all my idling .bat files at once? Would this have any adverse effects (launching one slows my computer down some, so would launching all 11 cause serious problems)?
Guys I've seen this thread before but never kept up to date with it.
Is the OP completely up to date or are there now new things mentioned which have to be changed?
im getting the blob error and i installed the new steam update which i deleted clicent registry blob after but i still get the steam already running error. wat do
what is that text tf2 program at the beginning?
If you still get issue and all your stuff is up to date, exit Steam, delete blobs, start normal Steam, wait ~10 minutes for everything to check itself for updates, exit Steam and try sandboxes.
Lately I'm not getting any items at all when I idle. At first I thought it was just a fluke, but it has been ongoing for several weeks now. What could be going on?
Zarx, check your steam and sandboxie steps once again...
I'm getting 9-11 each week, no problems here.
From a personal pov, I'm using a dedicated server for all my idle clients to connect, a dedicated server with exact forceteam and respawn rules.
Well, I've got everything set up as in the first post, except in my tf2 batch I have the "+sv_lan 1" command (i always thought this is necessary for idling?)
I have also tried idling manually and its not getting me any items either. It was all good until about a month ago, and I just suddenly stopped getting items.
Rakkie, it's easy to post a link to a tf2 dedicated server tutorial, or just google for it...
But I have some custom plugins that require sourcemod and some extra tweaks, so providing my server.cfg would be useless.
I don't want to act like a selfish piglet, but you can figure creating a default tf2 dedicated server... It's not that hard.
@Zarx: I never use +sv_lan 1 in my bat text... That's the root of your "no item" problem... Me thinks!
P.S. I can help you out with one thing though. These advices are solid:
- get/buy vmware workstation;
- create a 30-50gb image for it and install win7 lite;
- partition the vmware image in two;
- leave C:\ completely clean;
- follow the tutorial and install Sandboxie in D:\;
- get yourself 20 or more TF2 premium accs;
- hoard that damn metal;
+ more than 4gb in ram...
Attempting a go at the better method, but the whole command prompt stuff is a confusion to me, can anyone help me out?
Hunter, here's a quick example:
So, all my idle accounts are separated in folders, more exactly:
D:\Idler\22 <- 22nd idle client folder that includes the steam files
D:\Steamapps <- the steamapps folder, common for all client steam installs
Before using the command, make sure you only copy fresh steam install files, and make sure there's no steamapps folder inside, just like in the before photo, on the right.
After using the command, a shortcut to steamapps is created via mklink, as in the after pic, right side.
You have to get used to this command: you'll use it everytime you create a new idle client.
In the final steps to getting sandboxie+idling done, this is really important. Also, mklink won't work on WinXP, so tough luck...
This most recent update broke my sandbox setup. Whats the best way to get it going again?
(says verifying accounts then can't run because it's missing some files).
My guess to fix it is run TF2 accounts each from the normal Steam folder (stock setup) and update the Steamapps folder?
Alright back from moving. I don't have a fiber optic cable to my house so I have to live off of wireless internet.
Here is a re-written version of the script. Please report any bugs anything I haven't been able to hook up or implement will be in the next update.
current item scheme is up to date with 93B330A
tf_server_identity_account_id not set; not logging into registered account
^ does it do that because Im running to many copies of TF2 i got 15 copies of tf2 running or what?
does anyone need accounts ? I don't idle anymore. 4€ / acc (with tf2 premium)
I'm adding in the intervals and loading bar now. Hopefully I will have a release out before all my stuff arrives.
All this sandboxing is really confusing me. I can't idle all my accounts at one time anymore. Do I have to create a new sandbox everytime I idle?
It starts up Steam and then when I run Tf2 it just hangs at the running Tf2 window.
Last week was the first time I did this and it worked.
in europe its € and i payed €.
Anyone can upgrade a account to premium AND get 2 keys for just 5€ in the Mann Co. Store.
Either way, you should consider making a special thread about getting rid of your account(s) rather than trying to sell them in a how to idle multiple accounts thread.
My 2 cents worth.
Loading bars are finished. Timing will need to be fixed though. Expect something tomorrow :s
If anybody doesn't like bat's I am sorry. But I'm not sure yet how to code in .ini's and whatnot :P
