Fuck, page king. Now it will look that I was the guy who bumped.
Sorry to make a huge bump, but this is broken again. I have some people I'd like to change the aliases of and a lot of people who need new aliases, so if you would be so kind as to update this...
this would be a great tool for me! I have a ton of friends who always are changing their names and I have no idea who they are half of the time unless I recognize their avatar.
I'll try to get an update out for people on the trade beta, but for now it should be working on the non-beta steamclient.
Exceptions are the devil.
Unable to initialize Steam Context: Unable to get IClientEngine interface.
FriendManager.SteamException: Unable to get IClientEngine interface.
0.3 works perfectly thank you.
0.4 works for me (Trade Beta). Thanks!
Sorry to bump this but how would I modify it to get rid of the real name in parenthesis? I've looked through the source code and can't figure it out myself.
Does anyone have any idea if this still works?
Works just fine for me. The only thing I'm noticing with it is in the nickname manager program, everyone is always shown as in-game, even if they're not even online. You can still set and remove nicknames just fine though.
Is it me or doesn't the program work anymore? I think it's because of today's update.
Still working just fine for me. Are you using b9?
I used V4 of the FriendManager on the latest non-beta steam version
Oops, I thought this was the chatlogger thread. The friend manager program crashes on me now when I try to start it. (Using the same version.)
Thanks man, love your programs
Thanks! I wish steam gave us the ability to set the nicknames without the need of external programs.
From what I've gathered, it's an actual thing in Steam but you just can't access it through Steam. Voided's program just gives you access to it. I wonder why Valve never included the ability to actually use it in Steam.
and BTW for others you need winRAR or 7zip. to open this file.
Steam now has this feature itself but thanks, I've used your program for 2 years and it was awesome ^^
I have a question. Is there any way to remove aliases set through your program now? Steam's function seems to store the alias separately from how you do it and the current version of your program gives me an exception error when I try to use the remove alias function.
This is the details of the error if it matters any:
I also need help to remove the nicknames I've set using this program. The program no longer works for me, It says "stopped working" when I try to launch the program. Anyone that can help? Maybe a file I can remove for the set nicknames?
EDIT: I solved this issue. I removed everything in my steam folder except steamapps and steam.exe. When I started steam again it installed steam itself and it's now fixed.
-Used the Steam Beta Invite in my steam inventory.
-Went to the settings and enabled Steam Beta and then restarted Steam.
Now when I right click a friend I have an option called "Set nickname" or something like that.
In other words, you need the Steam Community Beta.
could someone knows what is the exactly file to remove the nickname? I don't want to delete all those configs...
oh i found it, it is in Steam\userdata\(your account number)\config\localconfig.vdf
you open this text file and remove all the "alias" "nickname added"
