API access request

Post by spypix3l »

Hello,

I would like to have access to the API. I'm developing a script on my Home Automation solution that allows to give me information about the games I have in my collection (GAMEYE), via voice commands.
Thank you !

Hi,


I wonder if you saw my message.
If you need to know more about what it is, please find a video here, that shows how it runs with the IGDB database.

The problem i have today is that IGDB isn't reliable (a lot of "too many requests" responses while i'm just doing very few calls), and I have a lot of data transformation to do to match platform, genre, etc. between GAMEYE and IGDB. I imagine it will be much more efficient with TheGamesDb as i believe GAMEYE also uses TheGamesDb data.

Thank you very much,
Jérôme
