  1. I'm using the search endpoint to return game data including cover urls, then load those into HTML <img> tags with the src attribute. It has worked for quite a while, but just today I noticed that I'm getting 403s for all of the cover images.

    I posted a screenshot in the Discord #bug-reports channel.

  2. Was rating some old Nintendo 64 games: Yoshi's Story, Killer Instinct Gold, etc. and they weren't saving after refresh of page or restarting computer.

    Was using chrome so decided to try Firefox and that worked (ratings saved).

    When I return to chrome it now shows my rating but if I try to change it - it defaults back to the rating done in firefox when I refresh the page.

  4. /genres return the following array:
    [
    { id: 4, name: 'Fighting' },
    { id: 5, name: 'Shooter' },
    { id: 7, name: 'Music' },
    { id: 8, name: 'Platform' },
    { id: 9, name: 'Puzzle' },
    { id: 10, name: 'Racing' },
    { id: 11, name: 'Real Time Strategy (RTS)' },
    { id: 12, name: 'Role-playing (RPG)' },
    { id: 13, name: 'Simulator' },
    { id: 14, name: 'Sport' }
    ]

    containing only 10 genres but many /games have genre ids that are not listed in said endpoint.

    for example 15 & 32 : Strategy & Indie and some more

  5. I'm experiencing an issue where the maximum number of objects allowed by the "limit" property isn't being returned, despite that number of objects existing.

    Consider this query:

    {baseUrl}/games
    body (text/plain): fields name,cover.imageid,firstrelease_date,platforms.name;limit: 10;offset: 30;search "halo";

    It's currently only returning 9 objects, but a search on IGDB.com reveals that there are 73 total and other queries (e.g., offset 40;) give 10 results as expected.

  7. Hi,

    I'm having issues with the APIs Pagination features. When making the following call the last item on the list of games is 'Pokemon Silver':

    request search "Pokemon";f id,name,cover.image_id,aggregated_rating,aggregated_rating_count,first_release_date,summary;l 20;w version_parent = null&category = 0;

    I then make this second call to get the second page of items, which returns 'Pokemon Silver' as the first result:

    search "Pokemon";f id,name,cover.image_id,aggregated_rating,aggregated_rating_count,first_release_date,summary;l 20;o 20;w version_parent = null&category = 0;

    At first I thought this was an issue with the offset, but if I search for another term it works okay. Any ideas what may be causing this?

    Hey! thanks for pointing it out. It seems to be due to a bug rather than a false release mind you. We’re taking a look!

    As a note, if you do spot some incorrect data you are able to edit and submit an update in case :)

    Thanks!

  10. As some reviews age, some sites can go out of business or just shut down. However there doesn't appear to be an automatic way the database removes or reports broken links or updates scores as they go away. Additionally, some of these will push scores averages down if they continue to inaccurately are placed as Review Scores, yet hold broken links.

    Steel Battalion
    https://www.igdb.com/games/steel-battalion
    - 404 Review Links (Gaming Trend)

    Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly
    https://www.igdb.com/games/fatal-frame-ii-crimson-butterfly
    - Inaccurate count of 3 reviews on Game Page, but 2 reviews listed on Critic Reviews breakdown page.

  11. I haven't received any new screenshots since Nov 16th via webhook. I am still receiving other models such as games, covers, etc. so I'm guessing this might be specific to the screenshot endpoint.

    I also don't believe this is on my side since I refresh my webhooks daily and have verified the setup.

  12. My Search query to IGDB API is failing with status code 400 if the search text contains a back slash \ in it:
    I am using below syntax:
    const { q } = req.query
    let fields = name, collection
    apicalypse(requestOptions)
    .fields(fields)
    .limit(50)
    .search(q)
    .request('/games')
    .then(response => returnResponse(response, req, res))
    .catch(err => returnError(err, req, res))

    requestOptions are like this:
    const apiPath = 'https://api-v3.igdb.com'
    const defaultHeaders = {
    'Accept': "application/json",
    "user-key": apiKey
    }
    // Apicalypse Request Options
    const requestOptions = {
    queryMethod: 'body',
    method: 'post', // The default is get
    baseURL: apiPath,
    headers: defaultHeaders,
    responseType: 'json',
    timeout: 10000
    }

  13. Query: fields id,name,externalgames.*; search "magic the gathering";where externalgames.uid = "2748";limit 1;'

    There are two categories 3 in the returned object, which does not correspond to an enum in the documentation; a category 3 corresponding to giantbomb can be added which would fix this.
