<cat>Dev.Backend</cat> <warning>This API is prone to changes at any time - and therefore this guide might go out of date. If something doesn't line up, it probably means the API was changed and that this page needs updating.</warning> This page is an analysis of the API used for the [dev site](https://sbox.facepunch.com/dev/) and the in-game menus; please be aware that this may change at any time and that none of this information is official. All endpoints are on the `https://apix.facepunch.com/` domain. # Types NOTE: Nullable types are suffixed with `?`.

This is the closest you can get: 1. Visit several endpoints (`/asset/find?type={map}|{gamemode}`, `/menu/index`) and collect a list of orgs with their gamemode idents 2. Search that list for an org that matches the ident we're looking for 3. Visit `/asset/get?id={org}.{ident}` 4. Get the title & description for the org from this ## Player Counts Player accounts appear to use the Steam Lobby API; this means that an active Steam instance is required, using an account with access to s&box. To enumerate through lobbies, use [Steamworks.SteamMatchmaking.LobbyList](https://wiki.facepunch.com/steamworks/SteamMatchmaking.LobbyList).
