cannot set UI mode / no event triggered when receiving message


Recommended Posts

Using the code below I'm not able to set the UI mode to desktop (3).

I've commented the line out and tried if the event when a new message is received is triggered and this doesn't work too.


Any idea how to fix these two problems?



var SteamCommunity = require('steamcommunity');
var steam = new SteamCommunity();
var SteamTotp = require('steam-totp');

var sharedSecret = "";
var logOnOptions = {
  'accountName': "x",
  'password': "y",
  'twoFactorCode': SteamTotp.generateAuthCode(sharedSecret),

/logs in via browser
steam.login(logOnOptions, function(err, sessionID, cookies, steamguard) {
if (err) {
console.log("There was an error logging in! Error details: " + err.message);
process.exit(1); //terminates program
} else {
console.log("Successfully logged in as " + logOnOptions.accountName);

//check if we're logged into
steam.on('chatLoggedOn', function(){
console.log("ready to chat");

steam.on('chatLogOnFailed', function(){
console.log("chat failed!");

steam.on('friendRelationship', (steamid, relationship) => {
console.log("new request!");
    steam.chatMessage(steamid, 'Hello there! Thanks for adding me!');

steam.on('friendOrChatMessage', (senderId, text) => {

console.log("received: " + text);
