RealID Toons  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.1.18
by: Starinnia [More]
Adds the current character name of your Real ID friends to the Battle.net alert informing you they have come online. Information is added to both the inline chat notification and the popup Toast window.

Alerts are populated with information based on the format string replacements you choose.
The following replacements are available:
  • $t - Character Name, uncolored
  • $T - Class Colored Character Name
  • $c - Class name
  • $C - Class Colored class name
  • $s - Realm (server) Name (only if different than the player's)
  • $S - Realm (server) Name (Always)
  • $f - Faction symbol (only if different from player, or on another server)
  • $F - Faction symbol (Always)
  • $l - Character level
  • $L - Character level (difficulty colored)
  • $r - Character race
  • $n - Friend note (only shown in Chat alerts)
  • $N - Friend note (always shown)

These options are available in the Interface Options, or by typing /ridt


FAQs
Q: My friend's character name is colored gray, what happened?
A: Some times the server is overloaded and will not return all the information about your friends, since the addon does not know what class your friend is playing the name is colored gray.

Q: My friend's character name is colored like they are on their previous toon, what happened?
A: Similar to the above question. Sometimes the wrong information is returned during periods of high load. I haven't been able to force this to happen, although I have seen it happen. I am working on trying to solve the issue efficiently.

Q: Your addon threw an error!
A: Please post a ticket on WoWAce, but first check to see if your problem has already been reported and that you are using the current version. Remember, being as detailed as possible in your report will help me fix it faster.

That's true. I have a complete custom UI that I downloaded (allez UI) and it suppresses the real id info both on the login and log off. So i downloaded this add-on to supplement.

Right now I don't do anything to logoff alerts. The data (generally) isn't available at the logoff event. Also, personally I can't think of a reason to add more information to the logoff alerts. Your friend logged off... not sure how information that is now invalid is useful.

And... maybe not so easy to get the guild information. It seems only friends in your guild actually return a guild name when you call the BNet functions.

Yep, that should be easy to add.

Yes, that is possible. However, since RealID Toons only deals with the login alerts I'm not sure that this is the best addon to accomplish what you want.

I'm not sure you'd be interested in putting this in the main line of code, but I have always modified this to include the characters level, race, and class to the code. The diff is as follows.

Code:
diff -rw /WoW-Apps/World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/RealIDToons/Core.lua RealIDToons/Core.lua
31c31
< 	local _, toon, _, realm, faction, race, class, _, _, level = BNGetToonInfo(toonID)
---
> 	local _, toon, _, realm, faction, _, class = BNGetToonInfo(toonID)
56d55
< 	toon = toon .. " - " .. level .. " " .. race .. " " .. class
It's much handier for me to see John Smith (Frostshock - 80 Orc Shaman - Azuremyst) has logged on.

I am aware of the issue related to not being able to bring up the right click menu on the custom login alerts, I'm working on a fix and once it's tested and I'm sure it won't cause side-effects it will be released.
