JSON dump only contains games data

Post by NeilM »

Hi,

The https://cdn.thegamesdb.net/json/database-latest.json dump is a great resource to avoid consuming API calls, however, it only contains game data. Whereas the MySQL dump that is also provided contains additional tables.

Are there any plans to make the same tables data available in the JSON dump?

Also, the images table is not present in the MySQL dump or JSON dump. - it would be great to have this available as well as this can consume may API calls also when creating an initial copy of the database.

Many thanks,

Neil.

Hello.

Both JSON and MySQL dumps contan images and other data.
Tell us which data you can't find and we'll check.

I can't find the mysql dump link anymore, I downloaded it about a year ago, but can't find a newer version. I noticed the json has almost 9k more entries than my current mysql dump. Are those still available?

Thanks
