flagRSP MoP  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.6
by: Syeira, Typhix
flagRSP MoP is an add-on that allows you to set a title, first name, and last name as well as setting a character status and a roleplaying flag. Other users of this add-on will be able to see these flags and you will be able to see theirs. This is mainly useful for RP servers, but there's nothing preventing you from using this on servers of other types. Feel free to report any bugs or request features here.

flagRSP MoP (formerly known as flagRSP BC, flagRSP WotLK, and flagRSP Cataclysm) is the original flagRSP add-on updated and enhanced for the World of Warcraft 5.0 patch. This continued version bases on the work done by Flokru and Adriathys. Since both authors have abandoned the project I picked up the code and fixed some open bugs.

Please note that flagRSP MoP will make changes to your tooltips. This may conflict with other addons that manipulate the tooltip. If this occurs, you can turn tooltip alteration off and won't run into any trouble.


Version information for v1.2.2 (compatible to WoW 5.2)
As always with a new version it's a very good idea to make an update of your flagrsp files ("YourWowDirectory/WTF/Account/YourAccountName/SavedVariables/flagRSP.lua" and "YourWowDirectory/WTF/Account/YourAccountName/CharacterName/SavedVariables/flagRSP.lua" for each character). Just rename them (for example to flagRSPbak.lua) or copy them somewhere else (or zip them).

The friendlist is going to be changed in 1.2.2. So when you log in, the names in the Friendlist will look like "Sye (Syeira) Ravenwing". The rp name is now handled completely independent from the ingame name. That means, the ingamename must be exactly the name of the character ingame or the charname-servername (without spaces) for people from other servers. But the rp name you can just change to what you want.

The good news is, that this change in the friendlist structure allows you to create flags for people without any flagaddon - or even for people from CROSSREALMS!

How crossrealm friends works:
  1. Take your new friend into the target
  2. Click on the "Add Friend"-button at the bottom of the flagRSP friendlist
  3. The ingame name is filled automatically, e.g. "Syeira-Forscherliga" for other realms than yours, or just "Syeira" if it is from your realm
    a) If you have no target, or want to add someone else, you have to insert the correct ingame name like "Syeira-Forscherliga" or "Syeira"
  4. Fill in the firstname and surname (or just one...), title, notes and set the friendstate
    a) If the new friend is from your own realm and has a flag addon, the rp info is taken from the flag infos
  5. Click the "Add" button
  6. Enjoy

FlagRSP will now use the information of the friendlist as a tooltip, if no flag is present.

Unfortunately, the direct addon communication between cross realm zones is still not working, but with this way you can do it manually:

You make a character on the foreign realm, e.g. "Argent Dawn". Go to the people you want the flag from, and mouseover them. Wait a little until you can see their flags. Then you can logout and switch back to your character. The next time you see them, you should have a flag for them (but it might be outdated).
Also, you should set a higher purgeflagintervall for flagRSP via
Code:
/rsp purgeflaginterval X
(X in seconds).
For example clears
/rsp purgeflaginterval 4838400
all flags older than 2 months (the default is 14 days).


Features
  • Set one of four roleplaying flags to show other players your preferred roleplaying style.
  • Set one of four character states to show other players how much in character you currently are or if you are searching for contact
  • Choose a first name for your character.
  • Choose a last name for your character.
  • Choose a title for your character.
  • Add a description of the outward appearance of your character.
  • All those attributes mentioned above will be visible to other users of flagRSP or compatible addons.
  • An enhanced friend list that can hold an unlimited number of entries.
  • You can add players, NPCs and even whole guilds of both factions to your friend list.
  • You can mark characters, guilds and NPCs on your friend list as known, friend or foe.
  • Add detailed notes to your friends or foes in your friend list.
  • Replace exact level information of all units by relative ones (from “extremely puny” to “hopelessly superior”).
  • Hide names of unknown players.
  • Characters marked as foe will be signalized acoustically when hovering them with your mouse cursor.
  • Make PVP rank, title, guild and guild rank of other characters visible in your tooltip. Or hide them!
  • flagRSP's tooltip modifications can be turned off if needed to avoid conflicts with other tooltip addons.
  • Every feature is optional.

flagRSP MoP is fully translated to English, German and Russian language. Translations for other languages are wanted, so if you like, feel free to send me your own. A French localization which covers about 90 percent is included.

Compatibility

flagRSP MoP now supports the MarySue protocol (MSP). As there should be only one addon implementing MSP, please run only one of flagRSP, FlagRSP2, TotalRP 2 or MyRolePlay.

Trouble shooting

Common problems can be solved by simple commands you type into your chat window.
  • ''/rsp resetinfobox'' — This will reset the position of the infobox that displays your target's character description. This is useful if you accidentally moved the infobox out of scope.
  • "/rsp resetbutton" — This will reset the button that typically appears above your target frame. The button is movable so it is possible to move it behind other ui elements. The command will reset it to the target frame.
  • ''/rsp alwaysinfobox'' — By default flagRSP remembers if a target's description window was shown or hidden the last time you clicked on it. You can use this to command if you want your description window to always pop up automatically when you click on a flagged target. You can use this command to return to default behavior as well.
  • "/fl mm an" — Displays the button at the minimap.
  • "/fl mm aus" — Hides the button at the minimap.
  • ''/fl show'' — Shows your friendlist and your flagRSP settings.
  • ''/fl hide — Hides the friendlist frame.
  • ''/rsp'' — Shows a couple of useful commands regarding some flagRSP core features.
  • ''/fl'' — Shows a couple of useful commands regarding some friendlist frame features.

Hm, I've never seen this before and I am not able to reproduce this.

I know there are some addons out there that will alert you if your character name appears in any channel. Are you sure you don't have one of those addons installed? Does this chat box message appear if flagRSP runs as the sole addon?

I'm having a curious bug that occurs on all characters. It seems to be triggered by an initial login or when description information is updated.

If I update my description, my chat box fills with the following:

"[xtensionxtooltip2] <character name>: dp <my character name>"

I've gotten many of the same entry, one after the other for a different amount of times. The text is in yellow, and I am not listening to xtensionxtooltip2 (channel is not checked off). These lines do not seem to be considered system messages, which are also printed in yellow. Unchecking "System Messages" in the chat settings menu doesn't do any good.

This is occurring on the most up-to-date version of flagRSP WotLK.

Error Message

My problem has been fixed!

I cleaned out my WTF folder and Interface folder and did a clean install of FlagRSP, and then added my other Add-ons back into the mix one by one. It's working fine now, so there was obviously some file in my WTF folder that I was missing when it came to clearing out the old FlagRSP files.

Thanks again for continuing this project!

For what it's worth, I was finally able to locate all the places where my operating system had stored the older flagRSP version. I did a clean delete and re-installed the latest version, and it seems to be functioning alright now.

Thank you for your help Typhix.

The protocol itself cannot be changed without breaking compatibility. An option I've been investigating is writing an entirely new protocol to go along with the new transportation layer, but while we're all still using the same channel theres no reason to alter the transmission protocol. We'd end up with an effect similar to MyRolePlays superflurous second channel, which is just wasteful.

I havent cracked open RSP-WOTLK, but this code already exists in ImmersionRP and is available in the form of libraries as well.

I will say that there may still be another method of data communication, as author OrionShock did start a roleplay addon project (yet has stopped development). From reading the Communications.lua file, I see the following comment:
The problem still remains one of compatibility. As I have stated on MyRolePlays forums, I can write a superior Comm protocol right now - but its useless if it means my mods users will be unable to see or be seen by the users of the other mods. I'm frustrated to the point of contemplating downloading their mods, rewriting them to use better code, and releasing them myself.

Although I was (and still am) keen about contributing user feedback, I find myself at an impasse regarding this issue. It seems that this issue needs to be either tested through implementation or put to an end. I'd be more than happy to test changes and provide feedback, but that is all I can do.
I just noticed your PM, so I'll talk to you more about working on a better method there.

Are you running WoW on Windows Vista by the way? Keep in mind that Vista may redirect files to your AppData folder if you try to copy them to a folder with insufficient rights (such as Program Files). Perhaps, the new flagrsp version was never really installed to your WoW folder.

That did not work.

It keeps saying it is loading 0.6.2, even though I have loaded the latest version. The interface will not open.

I suppose I will be trying a different add-on for my roleplaying.

Azureglade,

Did you ever find a solution to your problem? I have been having this same problem since the latest patch. I also notice that it seems even though I have loaded 1.0.3 the same way I have always loaded updates, the system still says it is loading 0.6.2, and from time to time I get the pop-up saying I am using an old version and to load up 1.0.3, which I thought I did.

I was able to access my interface just fine before the latest update, but now, even though I have loaded 1.0.3, it does not seem to be working. I even tried uninstalling and running WoW without it, and it was still there. It seems 1.0.3 is not loaded properly. I simply extracted the two folders into C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns, but it does not seem to be working. It is somehow still accessing the older version, though I thought I did a clean delete of it.

Please help.

As the person who's been trying to get in touch with those who have worked to any extent on such roleplay addons in hope of some unified "betterment", I still thank you for contributing, even if you don't use this (or other) roleplaying addons.

Re: thank you! thank you!! thank you!!!

PS: why did the name of the AddOn change to "flagRSP WotLK 1" on my "WoW Interface AddOn Favorites"
I've nothin' to do with that.

PSS: why isn't the "FriendList" AddOn in the .zip? isn't it needed anymore?
The friendlist folder isn't needed anymore for over a year now. You can delete it. All friendlist files are located in the flagRSP folder.

Because it's defunct.. Seriously using XML tags and string parsing like how flagRSP does is archaic and backwards. I've read over that code and it is the worst part of the addon, written by a novice and badly at that. There are SO many more reliable methods to use.

Then again it's not like I care, i don't use this addon :\
