Heyya gang,

I've extracted some data from the API, however, I can't for the life of me find the detail of specific id/code meanings. I know runners names are anonymised but I'm talking specifically in regards to platform, region, gametype, genres, engines.

Can someone help me out with this?


You should familiarize yourself with the API github page:
Take a look at,,, etc
will for example return the USA region as that is what the ID of pr184lqn refers to.


So this code only relates to NTSC and does not list the code for any other region. It's the same with the other categories. I try to just search /regions/ but is just a 404?

(edited: )

I found the issue.

As stupid as it sounds, you can't have the second / after the URL or GET request. will show all regions, while will return a 404.

For Platforms you will need to add ?max=1000 (or some high arbitrary limit) due to a high number of platforms that don't all show by default.

This may apply to the other API codes you are interested in as well.
