Game events

After this initial message is sent, the game is going to send additional messages for any event that happens. Those will be in the following format:

{
"eventType": "TYPE",
// ... additional data relative to event, sometimes events contain no data
}

Event list

Here is the full list of events, followed by the list of json fields it includes as its data. As you can see most of the events do not contain extra data.

loading_game
game_open
settings_changed "settings"
entered_offline_menu
logged_in "account"
logged_out
loading_level "levelid", "editing"
joined_level "level"
reached_checkpoint "position"
cleared_level
level_reset
joined_editor "level"
started_playtest
ended_playtest
opened_replay
closed_replay
joined_race
started_race
left_race

Here are one example of each event that has that extra data. You may notice things like the format of levels and settings are consistent and you can assume they will remain this way.
