Patch List

The API keeps a track record of when a piece of content is updated, this is based on which patch version the ID appears; ignoring all "dummy" rows. This patch list is handled manually and has been curated over many years. Work is in progress to ensure an accurate patch version for all current game files.

You can keep a hash of this patch list to know if any new data has been added to the API.

This patch list will not be accurate for Korean or Chinese game content.
