Matchmaking API

Post by squiddog »

Team,

Is the API supported? I am able to authenticate, and use the get-games endpoint, but the get-game-details endpoint generates a "404 Not Found"

404 means the matching server doesn't know about the given game id, can you provide more details?

Example (redacted token)

Code: Select all

This returns (I am clipping it off)

If I then try and use any of those game IDs, like

Code: Select all

https://multiplayer.factorio.com/get-game-details/?game_id=13010165
I get:

Code: Select all

<!doctype html>
<html lang=en>
<title>404 Not Found</title>
<h1>Not Found</h1>
<p>The requested URL was not found on the server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try
	again.</p>

It seems more like the specific API "get-game-details" is not found. This is not an application error. Other Matchmaker API calls that have bad or missing parameters return explicit errors. I can misspell the key and it's the same error.

It should be https://multiplayer.factorio.com/get-ga ... s/13010165, without the "?game_id=". This is documented here: https://wiki.factorio.com/Matchmaking_A ... me-details

As long as I have you here....

Is there an easy way to, from the API, find a specific game (maybe matching a name)? Vs getting the list of all games and then parsing the JSON?

Never mind, I can use jq on the whole json and get my gameIDs and other info in a single line.
