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.

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

If your JSON dump only contains games data, it likely means that the data was specifically extracted and formatted to include only information related to games. contexto

It looks like the JSON dump only contains games data. This could be useful if you're specifically interested in analyzing or utilizing game-related information. However, if you need additional data types or broader context, you might want to check if there's a more comprehensive dataset available or if further data extraction is required.
