Re: out of api calls for my private key.

Bump, still looking for an answer, it will take months to get an initial sync using the 1000 limit.

Re: API limits

you can also bundle up API requests and query up to 1000 entries at a time. This will page the API output so you will still need to make a few calls. I did some testing. It takes about 4500 or so calls to download the entire DB including all the images. 14 gets you all of the platforms and their ima...

out of api calls for my private key.

I created all of the code required to sync the DB, i watched it carefully for the first few hours, when it got to my Image downloading code it failed it iterate but i didn't notice and it re...

possible API bug

This URL should get all images but not boxart. But for some reason it returns BoxArt. Any idea why? Not a deal breaker but causes the sync to take longer because it tries to sync files it already has. https://api.thegamesdb.net/Games/Images?apikey=APIKEY&filter=fanart%2Cbanner%2Cscreenshot%2Cclearlo...

Re: I need a little more clarification around updates

seems ByPlatformID for sure does not allow fanart, banners, etc. https://api.thegamesdb.net/Games/ByPlatformID?apikey=APIKEY&id=25&include=fanart%2Cbanner%2Cscreenshot%2Cclearlogo%2Cplatform In that list is Doom (ID, 4836) has fanart, but the API wont return it. So it looks like i have answers to my...

Re: I need a little more clarification around updates

after some experiments i have found that the /Games/Images api maxes out at a little over 1000 GameID's. I noticed that very few games have images other then boxart. Its possible that /Games/ByPlatformID might actually support fanart, etc just there is so little of it i couldn't get the api to retur...

Re: I need a little more clarification around updates

I decided to waste a few api calls and query a bunch of random updates to see if there are more types then the example shows and sure enough there were a few more. Do i have these correct... it seems these would negate the need to sync images on their own. (Which is great!!) case "all_images": //[RE...

I need a little more clarification around updates

I have added comments to my case statement below, can someone validate that my comments would be the right behavior. It seems like some of these are very inefficient, maybe i am miss understanding. switch ($Update->type) { case "boxart": //if value is [REMOVED] (we need to delete a specific box art ...

My thoughts about the API, 2 days in.

I like this API better then the last, the move to JSON is a good change. This API doesn't appear to be versioned... IE there is no version number in the URL. It looks like the plan is to replace this API with the next new API version. This will break all existing applications. This will scare develo...
