Hiding Time Played

I'm looking for a way to hide the time played message every time that I log in, as Altoholic already keeps track of that for me and doesn't find it necessary to print to chat.

I've searched for TIME_PLAYED_TOTAL to see if I have a mod that is doing it and came up empty, but I'm unsure as to how to go about hiding the message entirely using that same string.

Any help would be super.

It must be a mod that is doing it... I don't ever recall seeing that message without having to type /played.

You may need to do a binary search.

Notepad++ has a search function built in that lets you search multiple files, or even folders iirc. Just open it up, press ctrl+f, hit the "search in files" tab and enter search criteria.

I've disabled and re-enabled mod by mod and searched using Notepad++ before posting, but it's still happening. Not sure where it's coming from, but it's annoying and I'd like to hide it permanently.

Figured out how to hide it, since I couldn't find which mod was doing it.

It's Altoholic doing it to update its records of how long you've played on a character.

It never did it before (unless I can't remember changing the code myself) and I checked the code to see where it says to print, but it's hidden now anyway.

Search your addon files for "RequestTimePlayed", which is the function that gets that information. Any addon calling that function to update its records should also hide it when it wasn't requested by the user. Here are the relevant bits from Broker_PlayedTime; feel free to point the author of Altoholic at this thread for copypasta.

Code:
local requesting

local o = ChatFrame_DisplayTimePlayed
ChatFrame_DisplayTimePlayed = function(...)
	if requesting then
		requesting = false
		return
	end
	return o(...)
end

function addon:RequestTimePlayed()
	requesting = true
	RequestTimePlayed()
end

function addon:TIME_PLAYED_MSG(timePlayed)
	-- do something with the timePlayed here
end

When you open the interface options, go to the AddOns tab, open the DataStore category and select DataStore_Characters. In there is the option, "Request play time at login." This is the option that is producing the messages and is required for Altoholic to keep track of your character's play time.
