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 should only happen if you don't have a chat frame set to receive the login alerts. But, I'll put a fix in for it.

I believe it was a RealID friend in StarCraft 2 that logged in when I got this, but I'm not sure.

I'm not sure I want to add any more info to the alerts, they can be fairly long as it is. However, I will think about it.

If you were to add something like that maybe have the rename sync using the "Set Note" feature to save its names instead of using the SV's
Friend renaming is really not something that I would consider something this addon should cover. As you said their is already an addon that does it.

Sorry for 3 updates in 3 days, but with the addon being as popular as it is, obscure problems presented themselves as well as opportunities to make the addon a bit more efficient. I am hoping I can go a few days without needing to change anything else.

There already is an addon that does this, Friend Color, and it's on this site too. I know some people do like to have as few addons as possible, but since Starinnia said he/she would write something separate, in the end it would just be using two addons anyway.

Modifying the Friends Frame would be out of scope for this addon. If I have time I might write something separate.
