This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

WHAT DOES THIS ADDON DO?

This addon allows you to essentially "change" or hide your name on your screen only. The addon will also change your party members names to their respective class names on all unit frames/tooltips/scoreboards.

Where does it change your name?

Unit Frames

  • Player Frame
  • Target Frame
  • Target's Target Frame
  • Focus Frame
  • Focus' Target Frame

Tooltips

  • Default Tooltips
  • Guild (Changed to 2nd edit, see below for info on configuring this addon)

Scoreboard

  • Your Name
  • Partners Names (Changed to their respective class names)
  • Your Team Name (Changed to 2nd edit, see below for info on configuring this addon)

HOW TO CONFIGURE THIS ADDON

You must edit the NameChangeScripts.lua file.

Changing the text on line 3, only between the quotes " " will alter YOUR character name on your UI.

Changing the text on line 6, only between the quotes " " will alter what your arena team name appears as on the scoreboard after an arena. (As well as your guild and party member guilds on tooltips.)

Example: I'm streaming, but don't want to be harassed by players, but DO want to advertise for my personal website.

I would edit line 3 to read:

NewName = "JohnDoe"

and line 6 to read:

newTeamName = "http://johndoe.com"
