MyRolePlay  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.0.400
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.)

Duct Tape Update
I'd like to wholeheartedly apologize once again for the massive delay, this is why you usually keep your computer locked away where no one but you can reach it, lest someone comes in and deletes your work.

Anyway, what's in this update? Nothing more than what quick things I can provide to get this addon back up to speed for working conditions. However, did make a few minor tweaks:
-Repaired the immovable MRP window bug
-MRP should now be able to read XRP and the new TRP3 as such if other players use it
-MRP SHOULD be able to read TRP's History section now. Feel free to prod me if this is not the case.

I'll be running through MRP constantly with a fine toothed comb and deliver hotpatches in the coming weeks. Feel free to report problematic coding to me, and I hope not to disappoint you guys again with such a late patch release next time.


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'm very glad you like my AddOn; thanks for your kind comments.

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?
If you mean the name on top of the character panel where you edit your profile? then it's supposed to show as your RP name when you're editing your RP profile in the MyRolePlay tab, and as normal (default) when you're in the other tabs like Character or Reputation, to reflect the general behaviour shown in other tabs (i.e. the Pet tab will show your pet's name in the title; so the MyRolePlay tab shows your RP name in the title, and your Character tab shows your in-game character name as the title, along with your stats and items). That was my intention, anyway.
Code:
/run CharacterFrameTitleText:SetText( msp.my.NA )
would temporarily change that, but the default WoW interface will probably reset it back to default whenever you change tab. It's not something that's in a feature, for the reasons above.

Your unit frames (your top left PlayerFrame and the TargetFrame, etcetera) don't get changed (because they show the in-game name used for targeting); in any case, messing with unit frames is a hazardous affair because lots of people use ones which are customised in different ways.

Chat currently shows your character name, not your RP name (however, there may be an option in a future version to show RP names in the chat frames, subject to a little more testing, and I was thinking of maybe an ‘immersion’ mode, most likely as a small, separate AddOn people can use if they wish, to try something that thing IRP used to do of having a button/shortcut to hide/show all UI except the mouse, the chat frames, the tooltip, and the profile browser).

Your tooltip should show the RP name.

Is that what you wanted? Did you perhaps want to change any of that?

MyRolePlay 4.1.0.85 released. A very important update: please, everyone, update as soon as possible! I’ve fixed a nasty bug (that could cause you to send rather more traffic than intended)

There are also several nice new features, including:—
  • Smarter communication (briefly: when someone you don’t know yet requests your tooltip data, you’ll get theirs in advance);
  • Preliminary support for WoW 4.2 (Public Test Realm) as well as 4.1 (live);
  • A new Currently: field (a short, one-line at-a-glance field that appears in the tooltip)
  • Multiple tooltip styles available: dislike the blank lines or guild ranks, or prefer a lighter (more compatible?) or more “Flag”-style tooltip? No problem!

Absolutely love the new features that've been added in r85. That being said, I do have some feature suggestions that may be useful.

An option to disassociate 'roleplaying style' and 'character status' fields (and possibly even the new 'currently' field) from profiles. This will make it easier for characters with shapeshifting to change character status without having to go back to the Default profile and change our status when we want to be able to use multiple forms IC.

A 'lite-style' description window meant to emulate the description window of FlagRSP2. Some users transitioning from RSP2 may find it easier to make the switch if they have this kind of description window available to them when targetting or, optionally, mousing-over a character.

I’m glad you like the new features!

Hm. Considering, but not sold on how to approach it. Fields feed through from the Default profile if they haven’t been explicitly changed in the currently-selected profile (if that’s not Default). RP style isn't likely to change very much but some people really like having Character Status (in particular) linked to outfit (so when they switch to their raiding gear, bam, they’re OOC). You might get a similar thing with the Currently: field; it really depends on how people use it.

Perhaps what might help you more is an easier way to edit the Default profile’s FR/FC/CU fields when you’re switched to another profile. I do plan to add a command line way of doing that in a future update (for those that prefer CLI). I don't think I've used the right button for anything have I? Note that you can set profiles up like RPFormal / RPFormal:Cat / RPFormal:Bear / etc. If you have a particular equipment set or two that you use when you like to go IC or otherwise, you could set up a group like that. (A copy profile function would be really useful for that, I note, having a druid myself.)

I’m unsure what approach might work best there; if you've got any expansion on the idea, please post it on the development forum at moonshyne.org and I might revisit it and see if i can help craft something that meets your needs, and the needs of others, most effectively.



As for your other suggestion, I’m not going to have MyRolePlay emulating flagRSP2’s look and feel that closely. If people prefer flagRSP2’s description window, surely they’d just prefer the AddOn they’re used to.

Soon, they’ll be able to.

When I designed MRP 4.x, I wanted to help raise the bar for everyone. The original FlagRSP was designed so far back in time, and the WoW API has made such advances since then, that the system was long overdue for a, well, cataclysmic overhaul (if you pardon the pun). But I also wanted people to be able to use an AddOn they prefer but still able to communicate, because these AddOns are all about immersion and communication. So I designed the new protocol to be extensible, (opened it, published a reference implementation (which ended up so clean and efficient that I switched MyRolePlay to it in 4.0.6.72), and then actively approached the authors of other popular RP AddOns to see if they wished to participate, and if I could help in any way.

Other, compatible MSP RP AddOns will soon be available: including flagRSP2 2.5 (as Azxiana gave me permission to update it). So if you prefer the “look and feel” of flagRSP2, I will have an update ready soon, once the testing is complete. (It’s still got a few rough edges, but then, so does the old 2.4 version right now.)

All MSP RP AddOns talk to each other fine, so whichever you run, you can see everyone’s profiles. You mustn’t use more than one at once (they’ll clash badly—you’ll probably get a big warning about that if you try, and don’t ignore that warning please, it’s not just cosmetic!—because they do the exact same things; same kind of reason running two Unit Frame addons might be a poor idea)—but since they all talk to each other anyway, that should never be necessary. They might not support all the same features in all the same ways, but those design decisions are the things that differentiate them from each other; and this common protocol between them means whichever AddOns you prefer, they have a common ground to talk to each other which is extremely efficient, highly scalable, (now) field-proven and flexible. I hope this approach yields the best possible outcome for everyone!

So... sorry if I ask something terribly stupid, but I'm not a native speaker, and I want to make sure I understood everything correctly

The upcoming FlagRSP2 version will be able to properly communicate with MyRolePlay and vice versa? Wow, that would be great news for me. I've always liked MRP's look and idea, but on my realm(s) nearly everyone uses FlagRSP, and by switching to a non-compatible addon I would miss out on 90-95% of available character flags. So if those two addons will work "together", this will be my chance to give MRP a try without feeling too isolated

MyRolePlay 4.2.0.88 released. This formally updates MRP for 4.2 (although the groundwork for 4.2 support was already done in 4.1.0.85).

It also adds a new feature: RP names in chat! This means you’ll see characters’ RP names (for players with an MSP-compatible AddOn who have set one, and for whom you have their basic character tooltip data) appear in the chat windows when they speak in /say and /yell, and when they emote. (This includes yourself.)

I’ve certainly grown to like it while testing; but if you dislike this new feature for any reason, simply turn RP Names in Chat off in the MyRolePlay options window, in Options -> Interface -> AddOns -> MyRolePlay.

Also, from today, the new FlagRSP2 2.5.0 update uses MSP, which means it is now compatible with MyRolePlay and you can see each other’s profiles again. Updates for some other AddOns will likely come in time… (Please don’t try to run the new FlagRSP2 2.5 and MyRolePlay together, however. Now that they can talk to each other fine, there’s no need to run both: trying to run both anyway will break things.)

I hope you enjoy the new update!

Nameplates...

First let me say I love this addon! I'm new to RP but so far this addon alone has breathed new life into a game that was feeling stale.

I was wondering, is there any way to show the MRP names in the nameplates?

Thank you very much! And thanks to the other roleplayers on your realm, of course!

Sorry, there isn’t, and can never be. The nameplates are rendered as part of the 3D world. AddOns aren’t allowed to interact with the 3D world in any way—that’s exclusively Blizzard’s department, and we can’t even try to appear to mess with it. (Besides, as a game mechanic, I’m not sure I’d want them on when RPing myself.)

4.2.0.90 fixes a Lua error that can arise when an incorrectly-scripted NPC (such as the Headless Horseman) speaks. (Thanks to Nawkar for reporting and testing!)

So...a friend of mine updated their version of MRP yesterday (when you updated). And he's saying that it's still giving him the message that it's out of date.

My version works perfect...no errors or out of date messages. He -did- uninstall the previous version and replaced it with the new one. Still got the message.

Any thoughts?

4.2.0.92

4.2.0.92 fixes an important problem; some people had apparently embedded pipe control codes in their fields, to change the colour of their name. (It’s not possible to do this within MyRolePlay’s interface, but I suppose someone had edited the Lua directly.)

As this could conceivably pose a potential security/impersonation problem and certainly wasn’t intended, 4.2.0.92 fixes this. If a field is received with embedded pipe codes, the pipe code will be simply displayed (instead of executed by WoW).

MRP can't do it, but TRP can, though MRP still read the code entered into TRP. That was how I heard it, anyway.
