  1. Just like itch.io, there are lots of games are available on gamejolt.com. So, please add this feature where I can add Gamejolt link as a store. Thank you.

  2. I think one of the sections that need the most contribution, especially in terms of time, is the credits. Having to type each name and title into the given boxes takes quite a lot of time and can be a deterrent.

    Since for most games the information is already out there, being able to copy and paste the information into a standard format (maybe word, excel etc.) and then import that into IGDB would really help.

    Also, being able to edit them even after the changes have been accepted so people can add different languages/voice actors.

    Might also be worth…

  3. Some lesser played games don't have an icon, a streamer should be able to submit an icon to Twitch after streaming the game for a certain amount of time.

    Hey there!
    By icons, do you mean the (game) box arts/covers?

    If so, we have plans to improve coverage of those on Twitch via IGDB covers, but also eventually help streamers and viewers add to those on IGDB.

    Thanks!

  4. 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.

  5. Pages 1, 2, and 3 of rated games, sorted by rating, does not show all of the games. Games of the same rating seem to be mixed up, and not using a second sorting column like game name to determine which should show on subsequent pages. This may be broken in the API as well, but I have not confirmed.

  6. Both Castlevania for the N64 and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness are missing from the Categories menu of Twitch, but they are not missing from IGDB's site. I have spent the better part of two hours trying to figure out how to inform someone, ANYONE, of this (admittedly small) oversight and ended up here.

    There has to be a better way to inform Twitch/IGDB of problems of this nature than to wander aimlessly around the Twitch help section, then give up and use the feedback forum, hoping that a relatively minor fix will be noticed by someone with the power and…

    Hey there!

    For all things IGDB it is best to come to us directly rather than via Twitch help. Our preferred way is via Discord :)

    Discord: discord.gg/igdb
    Contact form: https://www.igdb.com/feedbacks/new
    Twitter: https://twitter.com/IGDBcom

    Regarding the Twitch categories, while IGDB provides the data but what ends up there is decided by Twitch itself. In the case of Castlevania it is due to the fact Twitch is not ingesting Versions of games at this time. We are however working on expanding the data set so that they can become categories. Stay tuned!

  7. When I search for a game in the advanced search, I find the dates of some games that were released on pc are incorrect as for the date of their real release on a pc. Now these games Appear with dates of their first release on any platform and not their first release on a PC. Please fix that as for pc and the other platforms

    sorry for my bad english

  8. An automatically updated activity list specifically for games which have not been released yet. Once released games are automatically transferred to the "Want to Play" list.

  9. 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
    }

  11. When adding a comment to a game in a custom list – and that's all you do when editing the list – and then save the list, the comment will not be displayed until the list gets a game added/removed.

    EDIT: Needs more testing to pinpoint if it is consistent or just a cache coincidence.

  13. On a number of company pages, the game list does not appear, and games associated with the company can only be viewed within the timeline element (which does not display games without a release date, and is slow to reflect updates). This issue seems prevalent among company pages with relatively few games, although that might not be the direct cause.

    Examples:
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/cecile-richard
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/d3t-limited
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/kitty-horrorshow
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/michael-lutz
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/remy-trasevol-dog-devaux

  14. The current popularity value for a game doesn't make any sense.
    Please see below examples showing the popularity value with the hypes, and number of user ratings.

    "id": 115278,
    "hypes": 1,
    "name": "Rune Factory 4 Special",
    "popularity": 2090.622837928576

    "id": 120268,
    "name": "Zombie Driver: Immortal Edition",
    "popularity": 1431.973719413489

    As you can see, the top 2 games by popularity both have 0 user ratings. How can these be the most popular games on IGDB?

    The docs say 'The popularity number is calculated using usage statistics of game pages at https://www.igdb.com' which can't possibly be true if these games are at the…

    We’re not currently supporting popularity unfortunately, the existing hypes in the API are out of date and therefore out of sync, which is very likely why you’re getting those games as results.

    We will be updating our documentation to reflect this, but meanwhile we recommend not using Popularity since it isn’t providing an accurate count.

  15. 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.
