Steam Game Randomizer

Post by Baggef » Fri Oct 04, 2019 11:53 pm

I found myself with a lot of un-played games in my library so I made this, essentially all it does is go through all the names of the folders in your steamapps' common directory. So it's a glorified randomizer, I will be adding to it and updating the UI over time. You can add groups, like First person shooter, yet to play, favorite, etc. I'm planning on adding a text file importer.

Also, if anyone knows how to go through the names of the games in a person's library and not just those that are downloaded, launch games from the randomizer, and other improvements, I would love to hear it.

You can use the steam:// [1] uri protocol to do lots of stuff in steam. In your case you will want to use steam://launch/appid.
I'm not sure about the capabilites of löve in terms of third party http requests, but if you're able to use the steam rest api you can check out the GetOwnedGames [2] method (requires relatively lax steam privacy settings from the user).
