MyRolePlay  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.0.205
by: Etarna, Angry_Footman
MyRolePlay is a roleplaying UI AddOn for World of Warcraft. It lets you make a roleplaying “profile” about your character that other users of MyRolePlay (and other compatible AddOns supporting MSP) can see in the tooltip, and in a more detailed window. It’s fast, light, and powerful.
  • Spot other roleplayers at a glance, see which RP AddOns they are using, and get a quick overview of their character in the tooltip!
  • Change your character’s name; add a last name—or whatever you wish!
  • Mark your preferred style of roleplaying (casual, full–time, beginner, or a custom style…), or your status (in character, out of character, being a storyteller…)
  • Exercise your creativity further—describe your character’s appearance! Eye colour, height, weight…
  • Give people a taste of your character’s story, if you wish—add biographical information like their age, hometown, birthplace, and maybe even some tidbits of history to make people hungry to discover more by interacting with your character and roleplaying with you? Or hide others’ biography, if you prefer to discover that kind of thing through interaction.
What if your character’s appearance changes, say when they wear different clothes, or shapeshift into different forms? No problem: simply add another ‘profile’, and just change the fields you want to be different in that alternate profile. Select freely between the default and alternate profiles suit your character’s mood, dress, form and so on! If you name a profile after an equipment set (Blizzard’s, ItemRack or Outfitter) or a form (druid, shaman, warlock, priest or worgen) MyRolePlay can even automatically change profile for you when you switch!

MyRolePlay has tremendous scope for creativity. It’s extremely fast and flexible—a roleplaying AddOn that lets you express your character however you wish! Use it as an aid to roleplaying, fleshing out your character’s “feel” or just helping you stumble into more roleplay… how you choose to use it is up to you!

Editing your profiles

Bring up the Character Sheet (“C” by default), and select the new MyRolePlay tab underneath. Click on a field to edit it.

Alternate profiles management: [+] to add a new alternate profile, [-] to delete or clear the profile, [R] to rename it. Fields that appear dimmed out are ‘inherited’ from the default profile—simply change the fields you want to modify from that.

Further options (such as a choice of units to display height/weight) can be found in the Interface Options, AddOns tab, under MyRolePlay.

Where can I see other people’s details?

When you mouseover someone who has MyRolePlay (or another compatible roleplaying addon), you’ll see some of the extra roleplaying details they added in the tooltip, which is a handy hint that they're a roleplayer!

When you mouseover someone who has MyRolePlay (or another compatible roleplaying addon), you’ll see some of the extra roleplaying details they added in the tooltip, plus if they use MRP or another RP AddOn such as GHI (GryphonHeart Items) or T (Tongues), which is a handy hint that they're a roleplayer!

If you want more information about their character than the tooltip provides, like the full description or history (where applicable), target them and click on the “MRP” information button that appears by the target frame, to browse their profile in a resizeable description window. (Alternatively set a key combination in Key Bindings to bring up that window, or: /mrp show <charactername> or just /mrp show when you have them targeted.)

You can target yourself and view your own profile as it appears to others in there, if you like, and if you want to move the MRP button, right-click to unlock it, drag it where you want it, and right–click again to lock it in place.

(Users are reminded that profiles may be seen by other players and Blizzard, and are subject to the Terms of Use, and policies of the realm(s) you play on. Please have fun and remember to exercise your creative freedom responsibly and respectfully.)
-Fixed protocol latency issues with MSP
-Fixed "Update Required" protocol insisting to downgrade
-Sacked Gnomish Code Monkeys in favor of Dwarves

I'd like to thank Bor on Wyrmrest Accord for creating this patch when the issue first came up, as well as allowing me to implement it on MRP.


Known Issues:
  • Do not run more than one RP AddOn which supports MSP simultaneously. This is a bad idea: it will break things, you’ll be warned that it will break things, and you don’t need to anyway as all MSP AddOns are already compatible with each other. Just pick one you like!
  • Blizzard currently do not allow AddOns to communicate between players on different realms—even though you may actually be able to see, interact, and talk with each other otherwise, due to cross-realm battlegrounds/instances/groups/coalesced zones, etc. If you would like cross-realm support, please petition Blizzard to support cross-realm (by "Name-Realm") SendAddOnMessage() whispers in circumstances where they allow normal whispers—MRP is already ready for the feature, when Blizzard are…
  • Tooltip: Other UI AddOns which modify the player tooltips, such as TipTac or GearScore, may fight with the more advanced tooltip styles over who gets to draw the tooltip (MRP usually wins). “Light” or “Flag-style” tooltips may be more compatible as they just add to the default tooltip instead of replacing it, but they look simpler because of that. In a pinch, you can entirely disable the tooltip support by selecting Blizzard Default tooltips. (Without getting every AddOn author to agree on a common API for tooltip management and modification—a potential nightmare—this may be rather hard to fix.)
  • Long “Currently” fields (as in TotalRP2) don’t show up well in MRP’s tooltip or browser. I’d like to fix that, but it does require rewriting the tooltip and browser to do it… maybe later.
  • Shapeshifting (Worgen): Unfortunately, Blizzard provide no API for telling us whether your worgen is currently human-shaped or furry. Therefore, MyRolePlay uses advanced gnomish “GuessWork™” technology to detect Human or Worgen forms. Like all gnomish technology, this can in rare circumstances backfire. You will need to force yourself into Worgen form by using Running Wild, casting Darkflight or getting into combat before it will be able to keep track. If it gets out of sync (it shouldn’t usually, but might in unusual circumstances), try doing one of those three things again to get it back into shape, or try changing profile manually. (All other forms should work OK, as these have an API and do not require advanced gnomish “GuessWork™”.)
  • Profile changes show up instantly for you, but can sometimes take up to 6 seconds to appear for other players. (This is by design, so the Mary Sue Protocol stays fast and doesn’t slow your computer down or flood the servers.)
  • Button: Can’t find the MRP button? Using custom/modified Unit Frames, perhaps? Try /mrp button reset or looking underneath the custom frames. Many popular ones (X-Perl, SUF, etc) are already supported: but if you still experience problems, please post about them and I’ll investigate.
  • RP Names: RP names only appear for players you have tooltip data of. They only appear in the principal RP channels: /say, /emote and /yell. (This means the RP name may not appear for the very first line someone speaks, if they haven’t spoken before near you in this session, requested your tooltip data, or you haven’t moused over them before in this session.) Note that having RP Names turned on may in rare circumstances make the Target function on right-click of a chat name unavailable, but I believe Blizzard have now fixed this taint bug.
  • Custom Buff Frames: Using a custom buff frame? Is your player tooltip showing up where your buff tooltips should? You’re not alone, but I can’t seem to reproduce it: maybe I’m not using the right ones. Please test with just MRP and your BuffFrames and see if it still happens. If so, let me know which UnitFrames and/or BuffFrames you’re using: it’s very probably their bug, but maybe I can work around it somehow or help them fix it.
  • Custom Chat Frames: Your custom chat frame AddOn may already have MSP support: check the options. If not, ask the author to talk to me and I can probably help them add it.

I like the mod, but have chosen to de-install it due to the way it signs on for channels. The way it works (or did in the last version, at least), is that it inserts a channel or two FIRST in the list, which pushes all other channels further down in the list.

If you're just using default channels, this isn't a problem. However, if you use custom channels (I do) and colorize them to make them easy to see (I do), it wreaks havoc on those settings.

It would be nice for this mod to pop its channels into place later in the loading process, so that it doesn't overwrite channels that the game automatically reconnects you to.

Thanks.

In the future possibly. I understand that TipBuddy is quite huge. But it's REALLY NOT NICE to other tooltip mods. The reason MRP and tipbuddy don't coexist is because tipbuddy DESTROYS ALL of the game tooltips and rebuilds them (actually, replaces) them with its own... So it will be a while to fix that, if I do. I might actually just go and make my own addon called MyTooltip

Hello!

I just installed MyRolePlay and quite like it so far! The only trouble I'm having is that most of my characters also run AG UnitFrames which means I no longer see the MRP button on the target portrait and thus, cannot read their descriptions.

Is there a way to enable the button separate from the Blizzard target frame so I can locate it above the AG target frame?

Many thanks!

Open up the keybindings option in the games main menu... Near or at the bottom you will find a binding to open and close the target character sheet And of course, as is all things with beta 3 in terms of being great and featureful, it will allow you create a 'plugin' that will allow you to add functionality to MRP easily. Meaning you could create it so it would work But don't sweat, I'll probably do this myself

Is this compatible somehow with Aguf_UnitFrames?

I love those unit frames and love MyRolePlay...yet it would seem I cannot use both simultaneously.

The reason they don't work together is simply because while using the unit frame add-on I cannot see the MyRolePlay button appear on someone else's character bar. Thus, I cannot view their profile.

It's a real shame. ;_;

Any help is appreciated.

For those that want to know, Moncader and myself dropped development of MRP and passed the torch to Moonshyne. You can find her updates on her forum.

http://forums.moonshyne.org/index.ph...om34&board=2.0

There has been little to no change to the actual addon, only fixes per patch so far. I believe she is going to truly begin revamping MRP once WotLK comes out. Moncader frequents her forums and offers advice and bug fixes, as do I on occasion.

I have noticed this in a couple other addons I use and I fix it by editing the .LUA file it mentions. Simply replace ChatFrameEditBox with ChatFrame1EditBox. The code is case sensitive I believe. I hope this helps someone. I am an addon newb but picked this trick up this last patch day. lol

Updated

I’ve updated MRP to the latest version (4.0.3.47) on here as well, as WoWInterface had a rather old 3.x version and needed some love.

Currently working on the 4.0.6 branch (and about to go to sleep, honest), which has such goodies as being even smaller and faster, an options panel (well, it will have by the time it’s released), automatic profile switching on druid/worgen form changes (well, it will work; druid/shaman/warlock forms are easy, but worgen transform detection isn’t in the WoW API, so I’ve got to guess!), and a partridge in a pear tree¹.

___
1. Partridges not included. Unless your character has pet partridges.

MyRolePlay 4.0.6.72

Updated — with a ton of new features! It’s even faster and smaller now, yet has more features! Even I don’t know how I managed that! <g>

Updated to fix a bug. (It won’t lose the button anymore.)

Hello Eterna!

First of all, thank you for this wonderful addon, I will use this alot since I just started playing on a RP server.

I have one issue though, at first when I login and view my character pane, it's fine, my whole name is displayed i.e name+last name.

But as soon as I close the pane and open it again, my last name disappears.
If I relog, it gets fixed until I close the pane again.

Is there any way to fix this with some sort of command ingame?
