I'm on my first attempt to write a very simple scraper for an adult site but have run into a problem..

Conveniently the files you download from the site already contain an ID in their filename that can be used to point directly to the info page.

Reading this Scrap (wiki) I find that without an NFO I have to create a search URL first, but I have no need to do that since I can point straight to the correct page without searching.

Is it possible for a scraper to not have to search, for it only to provide an address ready for use in DownloadDetailsPage?

I guess this would the same as using an NFO where the XML would just return a URL ready to go, but triggered from FILENAME instead of an NFO?
