Hiscore API[edit source]

Is there anyway to go further than 50 people down the highscores? Hoppingmad9 (talk) 02:03, May 20, 2016 (UTC)

No, the Ranking.json has been always limited to the top 50 people in any given table. Without scraping the actual hiscores, you're not going to pull that information out. - Ryan PM 03:56, May 20, 2016 (UTC)
Ah thanks. Hoppingmad9 (talk) 23:36, May 23, 2016 (UTC)
Revisiting a heckin' old request, but whom at Jagex could we make a request to to add functionality to this API? I'd be interested in either adding a page or offset function, to be able to lookup a specific rank # in the hiscores. I know it's been tossed around before on posts without being added, but their API is so much easier than scraping the page. Thanks. MiniKold (talk) 21:33, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

avatarDetails.json[edit source]

Anyone know if/what the new link to avatarDetails.json? Currently listed url is broken (RIP adventurers log)Dojorune (talk) 15:33, October 27, 2016 (UTC)

This reply is over two years late, but hopefully it will help others. Use http://services.runescape.com/m=adventurers-log/avatar?searchName=X, wherein X is the player's in-game name, with spaces replaced with %20. Fishing cape.png Kate the HuntressQuest.png 12:59, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Seems like this doesn't work anymore, or at least it didn't load for me, the character that is, the page loaded as expected. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:22, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Comp cape details[edit source]

When you look up a user using the RuneApps website it shows the percentage completion of the comp cape. How are they getting this info? Is there an API that's not listed here? 2601:409:280:3836:6099:67DD:39A1:6ED6 02:46, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Can you link me to this? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:19, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
Nevermind, I found it. I asked on the RuneApps forums and Skillbert answered that it's an estimate based on skill levels and quest completion. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:37, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
If you look at their discord, it seems like he actually has a way to pull achievement info from people. Don't know why he's saying it's just a guess(how could he get an accurate guess from quests and skills?). edit: He's the relevant discussion. He was talking about how he's going to add boss kill count to the site.2601:409:280:3836:9DF1:55A7:B7CE:6B39 15:57, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Items # Broken[edit source]

Example: https://secure.runescape.com/m=itemdb_rs/api/catalogue/category.json?category=0 Claims # has 3 items

https://secure.runescape.com/m=itemdb_rs/api/catalogue/items.json?category=0&alpha=%23&page=1 Claims it has 0 items

This is the same result as entering an irrelevant character, such as a 5, which leads me to believe passing %23 (HTML encoded #) per the article is no longer correct. Dsctatom (talk) 05:34, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
