I am having trouble getting SteamChatRoomClient to work


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have been trying to send a message using the SteamChatRoomClient stuff (since it seems that the other one is deprecated)

This is the code that I use:

(in bot file)

const steamUser = require('steam-user');
const client = new steamUser();

module.exports.client = client;

client.on("friendMessage", function (steamID, message)
    chatHandler.chatManager(steamID, message);

(In chatHandler file)

const bot = require('./bot.js');
const config = require('./config.json');

module.exports.chatManager = chatManager;

function chatManager(steamID, message)
    console.log("before switch statement");

    let steam3ID = '"[U:' + steamID.type + ":" + steamID.accountid + ']"';

    switch (true)
        case (/test/i.test(message)):
            bot.client.chat.sendFriendMessage(steam3ID, "Hello World");

(please note that I have removed some cases from the switch statement & stuff that I dont think have anything to do with this)*

Thanks in advance,


Dont need this post anyways, just realised that I needed to just use steamID... The example at the top threw me a bit off :D

The friendMessage event you're using is deprecated and you should use the SteamChatRoomClient version instead, but that should still work and I don't really see any reason why it wouldn't. What kind of behavior are you seeing and what console output are you getting?

but the friendMessage event is exactly the same name as the one in SteamChatRoomClient, no?
