hey, do you guys also losing connection to steam server / crash lately with your idle accounts? i have perfect connection and thats not the problem. its stupid updates from time to time now that disconnects the accs. anybody else?
As for Item Managers here's 2 mentioned in the thread:
http://sim.didrole.com/ - Has auto crafting
http://www.jengerer.com/item_manager/ - Doesn't have auto crafting
wtf is item-scheme update for message?
I keep getting problems with my idle
this is the batch file
now its stays connected for maybe an hour or so then disconnectsCode:cd "D:\Program Files\Steam" start steam.exe -applaunch 440 -textmode -nosound -noipx -novid -nopreload -nojoy -sw +sv_lan 0 +map "itemtest"
and keeps looping a message about item schema over and over never reconnecting
I idled with 8 accounts overnight (first time in the last week), but 7 of them got only 1 or 2 items in 7 hours of idling. The game logs doesn't warn that steam connection gone "zero". Anyone else had this problem?
I've been idling for months and it happened only this night. It's like I already had used "drop time" on accounts I didn't log in for a week.
The game didn't crash for me, I just received less drops than usual, one of the accounts idle'd for 12 hours and got only one item. The TF2 log always displays if the Steam Connection goes 0, but that was not the case, unless Valve disabled the warning in the last patches.
I might suspend my idling attempts till this gets fixed.
this hasn't been the case for me. once this starts, the idle process gets f**ked for that account.ric20007 posted:

if you keep seeing the schema updated followed by "not logging into registered account" repeatedly, its an indication that something is failing.
usually i nuke these idles, and go back to them later to preserve the drop count.
If you're creating a server to idle, that identity message is normal. It just means your server isn't registered to Matchmaking. It doesn't affect item drops.
The message that identified if you're getting item drops or not was something like "Steam Connection = 0", it usually appears when the item server is down. But it seems it was removed last patch.
Just to add, all that messages comes after Matchmaking or item servers gone down. When regaining connection to the servers, that messages will display again.

This is not correct.gambler posted:
if i set my firewall to 'Block All' the steam connection = 0 still pops up.
I know something is failing and I'm certain it's instability from Valve's item and MM servers. But the steam connection = 0 error didn't show up any time, which is pretty much usual when there's any instability. That's why I thought it was removed. Usually I get around 100 items from 12 accounts, but early today I got only 72. Not counting crates.
It happened again last night. Idled with 6 accounts for the first time of the week, only 1-2 item drops per account in 7 hours of idling, with no disconnection.
I don't think its idle accounts, I play on my main account and have been getting very few drops.
I left the console log of my server opened today, it seems the "item schema" and "server identity" messages were appearing in 30~60 minute intervals, then about 5 hours ago it suddenly stopped showing up. I can only suppose item drops were fixed too.
I idled fine 4 days ago and got my accounts drop worth. I'm not sure why other people are experiencing reduced drop rates if this is indeed true.
item server is a fucking joke. doesnt work at all time to time now constant!
I was getting drops up until 6:45 tonight, then I get getting the error:
I have restarted my computer, restarted sandboxie, cleaned out the sandboxies, and still nothing, its really frustrating, its just stopped.
I get that error too soul, I still get drops
Drop system is having problems again, same as last weekend. Trading system is barely working. It has been like this for 6 hours already.
There's a new way of acquiring server updated files, after this new update...
New message from the .bat updater file:
Connection established: handshaking
Sending login message (??????)
Failed. Server rejected session login
If your server updater fails the first times, as it did for me, retry.
It will eventually send the "login details" successfully and get all the needed files.
LE: It connects to said IP (random), gets some files, then disconnects... It tries to connect to another random IP. Sometimes fails and retries, other times it connects successfully and gets other number of files.
Weird concoction, Valve!
P.S. What probably took 2min to update in previous patches, it takes 14 minutes right now. The login session rejection is just ridonculous...
It seems they fixed it. For now i'm having drop.
I find it impossible to trade between accounts now :/
