    Can I backup my game playing time log and restore after initializing?

    Love the new update.

    Now I just have to figure out the easiest way to remove all of the games I tried once and then didn't end up liking. Don't need 14 pages.

    Not with this sorry. Now that I've been looking at the file that stores this information it looks possible, but I probably won't look into it (or at least not for a while).

    I could probably add some sort of exclude/blacklist at some point but having that many games should be less of hassle with a GUI.

    Very very nice tool. Since I don't have a Nintendo account linked on my emuMMC, I was never able to see the playtime of my games. A GUI version would be nice too :)

    Nice app! I'm curious if using a particular app to load hbmenu counts towards its "playing time history" or only when the game is actively being played does it log the time. Anyone know?

    You mean holding R on a game like Zelda?
    If you have to choose your Switch user before you get into hbmenu then yes, it is counted towards that game.

    I've been working on getting it to read from PlayEvent.dat (the file which stores all this information) instead of using the available libnx calls and it appears the switch does keep track of how long you spend in unofficial NSPs, it just doesn't show up under the user page (and in the current version of my app) as they don't require you to select a user. So I could show the play time, it just would currently be for all users of the switch. If the player select request is added as @lordelan has requested then I could split the play time up per user.

    Great news thanks for the reply!

    And thanks again for making this app in the first place! It's already awesome and way better than Nintendo's very poor time tracking.

    Weird. Maybe it does this for you? I tested this out a few times today but using hbmenu redirect doesn't seem to be logging time towards any game I use it on whether I have the user selection screen skipped or not. Not that I'm complaining at all, I was kinda hoping this might be the case.

    Wish there's an ability to wipe all the playlist out to avoid the sneaking wife :whip:
