Idle Master

A program for farming Steam trading cards. It tricks Steam into thinking you are running a game when you're not, so you can get cards for games without having to play them.

Usage

Linux

You need to add some info to /usr/lib/steam-idle-master/settings.txt.

I found it useful to symlink that from ~/.config/steam-idle-master/settings.txt

By default, it contains:

sessionid = ""
steamLogin = ""
steamparental = ""
sort = ""

To get the strings for sessionid and steamLogin you need to open you browser, make sure you're signed into Steam, then find your cookies for store.steampowered.com. The other strings aren't mandatory.

(if using Firefox got to about:preferences#privacy then select Show Cookies…)

To run use /usr/lib/steam-idle-master/start.py (it uses Python 2, so python2 start.py)
