Yea you don't know how happy I am. I also wanted to add (you probably are aware of this) the aliases don't appear when friends come online or go offline either.

Hmm.. The alias feature seems to be working in the friends list, in the chat edit box but not in the chat itself for some reason.

That is true, harl.

Also there are some situations some tags don't work, offline friends can't show class, level, e.g. The addon does not cache data, only uses what the game knows, hence why these wouldn't work on offline people.

Putting this here, just in case:

There's a certain chance for users with older (or modified) tags syntaxes to not see the names of their Battle.net friends at all when syntaxes miss the SB (offline) and SBT (online) tags. (which don't seem to have been necessary pre-MoP)

Solution: Simply add those tags via the corresponding slash commands (/flc). Those who never modified their syntaxes may just want to reset them via /flc reset which will add the tags automatically.

I recommend maybe adding the bonus features in a separate module like Xperl, DBM, SLDT, TipTac, Atlasloot does. Or just creating a seperate addon . So people who don't want it can disable it without any impact to performance.

I don't think it's dead, the author just need a little time to update it. Sadly "Friend List Colors" is kind of far away from "Friend List Renaming", hehe. BUT I am curious how these addons work together, if they can or if one overrides the other, hmm.
Haven't tested them togheter. I'm pretty sure it's dead no updates since December 2010, there's been numerous bugs through 4.1,4.2,4.3 and now it completley broke in 5.0.4 and no updates, as well as no replys to PM's or comments on the addon since 2010.

That is hard because the names of realid friends are not plain text, it's rendered on top of a weird looking string, so you can't tell one from apart from the other, if they both got the same name length, so it kind of makes it impossible to truly track realid friends.
There's an old addon from the start of Cata that used to be able to do it. It renamed people when logging in and out, as well as when they were speaking in chat, and in the chat editbox when you were typing a message.

Yes, I have expanded the tokens to incorporate RealID names. $B is the tag, and added T for coloring blue, just like the RealID color. $BT produces a blue name for RealID friends, it's hidden for non-RealID friends. Also, check changelog for an example.

The default syntax is more Blizzard like, but shows character info on RealID friends, I shall add an option in some future update to toggle on/off for RealID friends for customization purposes.

I think I'm in love thanks a lot this is great can finally nickname Real ID friends in my friends list using the notes! Now I just need to figure out how to rename them in chat as well , Thanks again.
