    Is there a way to view our total playtime by Steam ID or character nick? or just database stores of our characters?

    I'd be interested to know if you could tell me, others may be interested even..

    Thanks!

    In Steam, if you click on your name and click on "Activity" you can view the hours that you and your friends have played - though these days it may show up as "Half-Life", and it maybe wildly inaccurate, as they kinda shelved all third party mod tracking and features awhile back.

    Best we could tell you from the FN side is when your character was first created. Dun have a function to figure that out in game.

    If you could tell me when Legate Malachite was created (I believe that was the first name I've used for MSC, or 2cwldys) I'll be glad to know.

    I tried using activity for half life but I don't know if third party mods are logged, as you said was "Shelved".

    EDIT: I'm pretty sure theres a way to view who's account was loaded over time by STEAM:ID on RKS servers, or FN databases. But don't wanna question the ones who clearly know the ifs and buts, yes, and no's.

    Pass your Steam ID and I can check for ya.

    There maybe ways to get online time, but we purge the FN log files periodically, as they tend to grow out of control, logging each and every little FN transaction, including all the wrong password attempts we're constantly slammed with.

    I know at one point, i had 2k hours in half life alone back in 2010 or so, right now it shows 50 hours. So it's most likely they have reset activity at one point, or have "shelved" the activity within mods, 50 hours in HL alone is possible as i rarelly played it outside of the campaign.

    Agreed, I guess I am asking on the FN-side of things.

    Hrmmm... Landed in that nasty gap we have - first appeared in the FN archives somewhere between June and September of 2015.

    Seems I can only pull character creation dates to the minute for those made after November 25th, 2016, as then I can simply use the file creation date, but that's the last time the server was rebuilt from scratch, so all files older than that share that creation date. Before then, all I can do is check the monthly archives until I find one the character isn't in.
