Standard API

The Wad Archive API can be used to get a list of available links and details of a given WAD from the database. The response is in JSON (XML is no longer supported). The latest version of the API is version 1, to always stay up to date with the API version use the word 'latest' as the version.

The request format is:<md5><sha1>

Wadseeker API

This API is similar to the one above but is based on filename instead of MD5. It is currently used by Wadseeker to find download links. Because multiple WADs can have the same filename an IWAD or engine can be specified.

The request format is:<filename>?iwad=<IWAD>&port=<engine>
