flagRSP MoP is an add-on that allows you to set a title, a whole name (with firstname and surname) 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.
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:
- Take your new friend into the target
- Click on the "Add Friend"-button at the bottom of the flagRSP friendlist
- The ingame name is filled automatically, e.g. "Syeira-Forscherliga" for other realms than yours, or just "Syeira" if it is from your realm
- If you have no target, or want to add someone else, you have to insert the correct ingame name like "Syeira-Forscherliga" or "Syeira"
- Fill in the firstname and surname (or just one...), title, notes and set the friendstate
- If the new friend is from your own realm and has a flag addon, the rp info is taken from the flag infos
- Click the "Add" button
- 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
/rsp purgeflaginterval X
(X in seconds). For example clears /rsp purgeflaginterval 4838400 all flags older than 2 months (the default is 14 days).

flagRSP MoP now supports the MarySue protocol (MSP). As there should be only one addon implementing MSP, you should only run one of flagRSP, FlagRSP2, TotalRP 2 or MyRolePlay.
flagRSP MoP is fully translated to English, German, Italian 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.

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.
