  1. I just implemented the events feature in my project and one user noticed I have all timings wrong. Everything is one hour too late. I searched for the issue on my end for a while, but then I saw that the API endpoint answers with the time one hour too late.

    For example, the Xbox Games Showcase 2024 (IGDB ID 493) answers with 1717956000 as a start_time. That would be Sunday, 9. June 2024 18:00:00 UTC. But the event is at Sunday, 9. June 2024 17:00:00 UTC.

    This is not only an error in this specific event, but all events…

  2. I have been using the following fields list on the /games path for several years now to retrieve a subset of data I needed for games:

    fields first_release_date,summary,genres.name,themes.name,involved_companies.*,involved_companies.company.name

    This previously worked properly, and I have code to process the variables for "developer", "supporting", and "publisher" on each involved company that is returned. However, I recently noticed that no games ever return results with "publisher" set to true anymore after re-grabbing data for some games and seeing the publisher data I had stored for them disappearing for every game (where previously the same method had received those results). I only ever…

  4. I cannot seem to get versionparent or versiontitle fields back as my query returns a bunch of the same games and I am assuming it is a version thing like if I can filter by the main game only. I have even tried where parent_game = null and it doesnt seem to do anything

  5. When using the "games" endpoint w/ the python igdb-api-v4 wrapper, the query used to get the age ratings covers (ESRB, PEGI, etc) should be "ageratings.ratingcover_url" but it never succeeds in providing the cover url, but it also never returns an error saying the information isn't available or that the query was structured wrong.

    Here's my full example I'm using (so far) that doesn't produce a result:

    # This is in python3
    wrapper.api_request(
            "games",
            'search "'
            + game_name
            + """\";
            f id, name, first_release_date, age_ratings.rating_cover_url, cover.url, platforms.name;
            limit 20; 
            where first_release_date != null;
            """
    

    All the other "data.thing"s work…

  6. I'm not sure if this is the right category to report website bugs such as this one, but I recently noticed the "default" sorting orders of my custom lists aren't showcased properly on the downloadable CSV, but the public page will be sorted ok and correctly numbered.

    Thanks in advance!

  8. I've noticed several games (it seems largely this happens with games that used to be one single entry but got split into a main game and ports) where the main game entry reports several platforms via the API that it no longer has in the web interface. If you go into try to change it, it seems to believe that only the single main platform is actually listed, but the API reports all of the platforms that had previously been associated with the game. A really good example is pulling the info for this game via the API:

  9. When trying to pull this game via the API, several items are blank including the game's name:
    https://www.igdb.com/games/dragon-knight-4

    IGDB's API response:

    {
    "msg": "success",
    "roms": [
    {
    "igdbid": 45959,
    "slug": "",
    "name": "",
    "summary": "",
    "url
    cover": "https://images.igdb.com/igdb/image/upload/t_cover_big/co4o3m.jpg",
    "urlscreenshots": [
    "https://images.igdb.com/igdb/image/upload/t
    original/sc8wdv.jpg",
    "https://images.igdb.com/igdb/image/upload/t_original/sc8wdu.jpg",
    "https://images.igdb.com/igdb/image/upload/t_original/sc8wdw.jpg",
    "https://images.igdb.com/igdb/image/upload/t_original/scgoiw.jpg",
    "https://images.igdb.com/igdb/image/upload/t_original/scgoix.jpg"
    ]
    }
    ]
    }

    Unfortunately, I've noticed this isn't the only game that does this- but is definitely an example of it.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. When you filter by alphabetical order or Rating or release date the list is different but the number of pages does not change.
    An example is PS1 since the alphabetical order A - Z page 54 ends up in the letter D and from Z - A page 54 ends up in the S. Which means that games with initials E to R do not appear in alphabetical order however in other orders they appear and others do not Final Fantasy VII appears in the order by Rating but not by Release Date or Alphabetical

  14. /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

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

  17. I submitted a game prologue, which was rejected because it was a demo.

    However, I marked that game as "played" before it was rejected. Now, I have a ghost "played" game, whose existence is given away by the game count.

    I would like to be able to remove that "ghost" game from the list, but it is not visible in the list, and I don't know its IGDB ID, so I cannot forge an API request to remove it from the list.

    A simpler fix would be NOT to count "ghost" games when counting the number of games in a…

    Hey! Yes that is absolutely correct the new gen platform should be there.
    We’ll take a look into that, thank you for pointing it out!

  20. I'm having an issue where preforming API searches doesn't return games that exists on the IGDB site.

    For example, these two Pokemon games exist on IGDB:
    https://www.igdb.com/games/pokemon-x
    https://www.igdb.com/games/pokemon-y

    But when I search via the API I get no results back.

    I'm searching this endpoint:
    https://api-v3.igdb.com/games

    And here's my search body:
    search "Pokémon x"; fields id,name,cover.imageid,firstrelease_date; where cover != null; limit 5;

    I get an empty JSON result.

    Hey there.
    Search in the API is indeed in need of a big overhaul, this is planned and in our backlog, unfortunately it isn’t on our immediate roadmap and therefore not currently being worked on.
    Apologies in the meantime, we will keep our API community up to date as soon as work on this feature begins.
