  1. I'd like for twitch to make a category for Genma Onimusha. Onimusha Warlords got re-release in 2002 known as Genma Onimusha. I saw almost all Onimusha games but this.

    This game is exclusive to Xbox and can be played in Xbox360 as backward compatible.

    There is been a lot of misunderstanding on this game when I reached out IGDB to amend changes. I was told to reach out here via UserVoice, If I want this game to have its own category in twitch.

    Although, I also want to stress and clarify that this game is not a port but a…

  3. The remake of work, Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer (IGDB ID: 78341, NDS Shiren) appears on Twitch, but the original, Fushigi no Dungeon 2: Furai no Shiren (IGDB ID: 103496, original Shiren), is registered with IGDB but does not appear on Twitch. NDS Shiren is not just a port, it's a completely new remake, and there's no way original Shiren can be broadcast under the NDS Shiren category.
    Twitch shows other remakes, but why doesn't it show Shiren? The reason may be that it's considered an alternative to other games, as shown on the following page.

  4. It would be very nice to have the images of the platform work in the API. I don't mean the logos, I mean the wide image that displays the console in its entirety. Maybe add it as Platform Images or something like that.

  5. I was trying to add credits for a game I developed myself, but we have no youtube video showing the credits. I think there should be another method of verification for entered credits e.g. websites or some kind of verification of the credibility of the editor.

    Heya!

    Our end credits is one of the oldest feature we have on the site and indeed could use some additional improvements.
    Unfortunately this isn’t currently planned to revisit it in the short term.

    We do however intend to explore ways to differentiate game developers from regular users which could also help such use cases.

    Thanks!

  6. The TI-84 Graphing calculator can play certain video games and some made exclusive for it. I don't see why it couldn't be on IGDB.

  7. In lists, I see that you can export those lists into csv files. However, when I go to view them, they don't have the user's personal rating, which I feel like is an important data point if someone wants to see their lists.

    Essentially, this request is for a new column alongside the average user rating called "Personal Rating".

    If no personal rating exists, it can either be 0 or empty.

    Thank you for all your hard work!

  8. Have more options in the personalise home screen that change the categories that show, and maybe change the locations like widgets.

    Bee able to see suggested games (based on ratings), see karma hunter categories (missing credits, missing screenshots), be able to make the coming soon big like the popular games right now etc.

    Hey!

    Awesome suggestion thank you. Revisiting the homepage is definitely planned in the future. Right now we do have filters by platforms that will impact the games reviewed and the coming soon/recently released sections.

    Being able to showcase more community driven games, such as rated, reviewed or contributed is definitely one good option.

    We’ll have announcements when we return to this! thanks

  9. 3D view of game covers, being able to view the front, sides and back sides.
    Could be nice when having many regions and scanned images of all sides of a box art.

    Hey! For now we’re focusing on a single cover standard. Which we’ll then expand to other regions to be able to cover more types of users for this standard.

    Once we have good coverage of those we may start looking at additional aspects such as sides, back of cover etc..

    Thanks!

  10. The game bundle SEGA Mega Drive & Genesis Classics (https://www.igdb.com/games/sega-mega-drive-and-genesis-classics) contains a large amount of games on the webpage, but in the API only one game is returned, sonic:

    'fieldsname, url, bundles; where bundles = (80185); limit 50;' https://api-v3.igdb.com/games
    [
    {
    id: 3192,
    bundles: [
    4157,
    7189,
    20502,
    20621,
    22297,
    46204,
    80185,
    86067,
    96393,
    99953
    ],
    name: Sonic the Hedgehog,
    url: https://www.igdb.com/games/sonic-the-hedgehog
    }
    ]

    If you pick one of the games listed on the web page as in that bundle that is missing from the API, for example Gain Ground, the web page for Gain Ground says it…

  11. The 'follow' attribute for a game is never returned from the API.
    For example, I would expect the following query to return "follows": 466 (as per the website).

    fields name, follows, hypes;
    where name ~ "last of us: part";
    limit 10;

    Instead, I get:

    "id": 26192,
    "hypes": 325,
    "name": "The Last of Us: Part II"

    Hey there, we don’t actively support Follows (and Hype) as a data point. We need to update our documentation to reflect this, apologies.

    Follow is part of the private endpoint we are sunsetting.

  12. Multiple selectable choices which defines what kind of distribution the game have:

    – Physical media: big box, jewel case only, DVD, paper sleeve etc.
    – Digital

  13. Currently if you look at a series collection page, the main games, dlc and expansions are listed, but not standalone expansions.

    Examples:
    https://www.igdb.com/games/nostalgia-forte is not listed on its series collection page https://www.igdb.com/collections/nostalgia

    https://www.igdb.com/games/far-cry-3-blood-dragon is not listed on its series collection page https://www.igdb.com/collections/far-cry

    I think it is hard to find those stand alone expansions from the perspective of trying to find all standalone games in a series and would really like to have them represented.

  14. Something that comes up with Collections and Bundles are Age Rating Ranges, where you'll have a packages with multiple games than vary in ratings.

    Ex. Jak & Daxter Collection
    ESRB: E - T

  15. Titles contained within Collections and other Bundles can be listed as included by displaying links on the Game Page to each respective title's own page. However there is no current way to list titles unlocked as secrets from earning achievements or other various tasks in game.

    Ex. Completing the Xbox release of House of the Dead III unlocks House of the Dead 2.

  16. One of the things that really confuses me about IGDB is that I often have interactions with IGDB admins that make me wonder if they know Twitch isn't paying me to work for IGDB.

    IGDB admins have repeatedly been very snappy with me when I make several contributions to the database, and have gone out of their way to make it obvious how annoyed they are with me. So let me spell it out louder for the people in the back,

    You are the ones who are being paid. I'm taking my free time to submit information to make this…

  17. 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…

  18. game released in 2015 with the title mortal kombat x mobile has undergone a name change over the years, so the game cannot be found to be able to stream with it, that makes the community even lower.
    2 days ago I tried to enter the game into the database but since it is registered, said action was denied, but if it is registered, why is it not in the "Mortal Kombat x MOBILE" category?

  19. I'd like to make a list of some games, and describe why I added them to the list, and share that information with friends. Right now, I can add descriptions and share the list, but for some reason it hides the descriptions when someone else views the page.

  20. Currently to discover more titles using advanced search, you have to keep scrolling until you hit Load more. Further, after a few of those it dead ends and and you can't look anymore into whatever parameters you want, especially when searching in very wide criteria such as release date alone. Adding more "Load More" scrolls would just slow down the website and not be a feasible solution. A great quality of life change would be to just make it simple pages or do some kind of hybrid with the current, due to it's inconsistency alone it makes the database difficult…
