Steam: Watch out for false VAC bans!

There is a huge problem with Valve Anti-Cheat system at the moment. It seems that they have enabled a brand new manual rule that triggers a VAC ban on certain Steam accounts. If you launch Steam on Linux with an account name (OS account, not Steam account!) that contains “Catbot” you WILL be banned on Steam. Permanently.

Why does that even happen?

It’s because of a certain Team Fortress 2 farming bots that got really popular lately, here’s the explanation from reddit:

Some guy makes a bunch of bots named like “Catbot #47” and sends them out onto Casual servers in TF2, they follow a set path based on the map and have aimbot. They’re honestly really well made, and the way they’re getting banned is that Steam checks the program’s username on its Linux partition (not the Steam account’s username). He’s already changed the code to randomize the Linux username and sent them back out.

So as you see the farming/hacking is working just fine once more because someone already fix their “security measures”. Apparently that was intentional behavior by VAC team and according to them it’s a feature… not a bug (if you believe the guy from Github):

Good day, I’ve received word from the VAC team that this is intentional and not open for discussion on Github.

In general VAC issues are not handled on Github in any capacity and further issue reports on this may result in being banned from the Valve Software issue trackers.

If any of you use the name catbot for some odd fucking reason (because why the fuck not, right?) watch out for that stupid rule and don’t get yourself banned. VAC doesn’t make mistakes my ass. This reddit post sums up the situation perfectly:

Watch out! New currencies coming to Steam tomorrow.

In case you didn’t know Steam is introducing a lot of new currencies to the store worldwide, including Polish Złoty. If you have any money in your Steam Wallet and it happens to be in Euros €€€ then you might get fucked. You see, they have sent an e-mail about it recently and Steam is going to convert the cash you have to your local currency.

Why are you out of luck? If they convert it on their own currency exchange rates (which is 3.59zł for €0.99 instead of 4.18zł) you will loose some money.

Here’s a quick example:

If you have charged your Steam wallet with let’s say €25 you paid around 105 Polish Złoty for it. Now if they convert it with their exchange rate you’re going to have around 90 Polish Złoty. If not you’re all good. But if they do… you’re going to loose around 15zł, if you can spend that Steam Wallet funds on something do it now I guess, but it all depends on the price of games.

Valve is going to leave the new exchange rate as a suggestion for game publishers/developers but if they’re going to even the prices to western Europe you’re mostly out of luck. If this happens this really sucks. More info about coming changes here and here.

New currencies coming to the Steam store

I know this is rather old news but I don’t have much time to post here. I can’t believe this is finally happening… after 9 fucking years (!) Steam introduces more currencies to the Steam store. Details below!

This is an e-mail to all Steamworks developers from Valve Software – New currencies to expect on Steam:

“Pricing should be entered as soon as possible, with display of these new currencies scheduled to go live in time for our 2017 Autumn and Winter Sales. To enter pricing, sign in to the Steamworks Developer Site and select Pricing from the Apps & Packages drop-down. You will see green-colored recommendations filled in for new currencies, based on your selected USD base price. These recommended prices can be accepted or adjusted at your discretion. As a reminder, if you do not have pricing entered for a country after a local currency is set live on the Steam storefront, your game will be unavailable for sale in that country.”

“We have also updated our recommended pricing matrix for new and existing currencies. Our goal is to update these recommendations annually, so as to better help developers succeed in markets worldwide. Pricing decisions on Steam are entirely in the hands of you the developer, and we encourage you to always do what’s best for your players. You can find more information and suggested best practices in the Steamworks Pricing Documentation.”

“*PLN pricing is specific to Poland, but as always any game licenses purchased within an EEA country (either directly or as a gift) can be redeemed by any user within the EEA.”

“0,99 euro – 3,59 zł
1,99 euro – 7,19 zł
2,99 euro – 10,99 zł
3,99 euro – 14,49 zł
4,99 euro – 17,99 zł
5,99 euro – 21,99 zł
6,99 euro – 25,49 zł
7,99 euro – 28,99 zł
8,99 euro – 32,99 zł
9,99 euro – 35,99 zł
14,99 euro – 53,99 zł
19,99 euro – 71,99 zł
22,99 euro – 89,99 zł
27,99 euro – 107,99 zł”

Which means Poland is no longer getting fucked on Steam.

Steam store is now blocked in Malaysia

It seems that the Steam store is currently disabled in Malaysia because of the game Fight of Gods. The client itself works, you can still download your games that you’re subscribed to but you can no longer buy anything from the store.

That’s pretty fucked up that in 2017 because of one title (a game about gods…) whole service is now disabled or possibly banned, even if they restore (or already restored?) access to the store is pretty worrying that shit like this happens these days.

Here’s the original screenshot that’s been floating around on the net:

Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission claimed that the game “degraded religions and religious leaders, and posed a huge threat to racial unity and harmony.” because it features religious icons like Jesus Christ and Gautama Buddha.

You can buy the game on Steam, it’s currently in Early Access for less than €5. If you don’t like the game or it’s contents just don’t buy it and move on. That’s how civilized world works.
