In this post, I'll show you to boost your steam gaming hours record in your steam account with hourbooster.
- To follow this tutorial, you need a VPS (Virtual Private Server) which can help you to achieve your steam account gaming hours record target by being 24x7 online.
- If you don't have a VPS, you can get it for free on NanoKVM or FreeVPS (but you need to be active being a member in Lowendtalk / Lowendspirit). Alternatively you can buy a compute VM starting from $4/month in HostHatch.
Let's move forward.
as I'm using Ubuntu, I can install the LTS version of Node with snap:
sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd sudo snap install node --classic
root@ariq01:~# sudo snap install node --classic node (18/stable) 18.14.2 from OpenJS Foundation (iojs✓) installed root@ariq01:~# node --version v18.14.2 root@ariq01:~# npm --version 9.5.0
If you are using another operating system than Ubuntu such as CentOS, FreeBSD, or Fedora, you might follow the installation documentation of Node.js:
Next, we will install hourbooster currently available on Github
Git clone the repository with:
git clone https://github.com/michikxd/hourbooster
root@redhawk:~# mkdir steam root@redhawk:~# cd steam root@redhawk:~/steam# git clone https://github.com/michikxd/hourbooster.git Cloning into 'hourbooster'... remote: Enumerating objects: 175, done. remote: Counting objects: 100% (25/25), done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (15/15), done. remote: Total 175 (delta 21), reused 10 (delta 10), pack-reused 150 Receiving objects: 100% (175/175), 54.13 KiB | 1.93 MiB/s, done. Resolving deltas: 100% (93/93), done.
move to inside the directory:
and install the steam-user package:
npm install steam-user
Edit the config.json with your favorite editor and fill it like this code:
as we can see, on that code, in the settings - games, you can replace "570" with your desired game. 570 means for Dota2. You can get to know the Game ID in the steamdb site: https://steamdb.info/app/570/
The screen program keeps your program running even though you close the SSH session, install it with:
apt install screen
Open the screen app by running:
and final action you can start the hourboost with:
Enter your Steam Guard App code (check on your mobile app), and we can check our steam account right now. Here's my screenshot:
You can safely detach your screen session with
D on your keyboard.
Check the list of screens that currently running with:
root@redhawk:~/steam/hourbooster# screen -ls There is a screen on: 2429518.pts-0.redhawk (02/24/2023 05:31:41 PM) (Detached) 1 Socket in /run/screen/S-root.
Answer: Yes, probably safe. No VAC ban risk (it is allowed by steam) because there is a paid service for this app like freehourboost.
