Deleted games

Post by freelancer » Sat Aug 04, 2018 2:41 pm

How can I figure out if a game has been deleted? Is this reflected in the /Games/Updates API call somehow?

For new games, an update entry with type "game" and value "[NEW]" is returned, maybe deleted games return "[DELETED]"?

Relatedly, is there a list somewhere of all the possible update entry types ("game", "platform", "boxart", etc)? Right now I'm just kinda making my own list based on what I see in manual calls to the endpoint, but I might miss something if it doesn't happen very often.

as @edirol have mentioned, [REMOVED] is used when game or image is removed.

as for the types it's this for now, the type is just based field you'd find in game an images

Code: Select all

type	
boxart	
game	
game_title	
overview	
release_date	
players	
coop	
developer	(if not removed, to be removed)
publisher	(if not removed, to be removed)
youtube	
rating	
genre	
clearlogo	
game_id	
platform	
series	(now is referred to as banner)
screenshot	
genres	
all_images (this is used when a game is deleted and ALL images are removed along side it, though the should be implied when you see a game being removed)
fanart	
developers	
banner	
publishers

Thanks!

*edit* I'm assuming genre is on the way out aswell, in favor of genres? I haven't seen it in any updates, so maybe it's already gone.
