About Addon Control Panel

Stop logging out of the game just to change your addons!

ACP adds the "Addons" button to the game's main menu (The one you get when you hit ESC). It allows you to manage your addons in game, with an interface which looks similar to the blizzard addon manager. ACP will help you deal with the "Clutter" that multi-part addons and libraries introduce by displaying your addons in logical arrangements. ACP has many features to make your addon list easy to manage, help you with missing libraries, and provide you with detailed information about each addon.

Slash Commands:

/acp - show and hide the ACP window

/acp addset <set #> - enable an addon set

/acp removeset <set #> - disable an addon set

/acp disableall - disable all addons (except protected and ACP)

/acp default - restore the enabled addons to what was enabled last time the UI was loaded

Icon meaning:

Star: Protected addon - this addon will not be disabled when you choose disable all, also if it is not enabled when you log into the game, it will be re-enabled and you will be prompted to reload the ui.

Dk Grey Open Lock: Addon does not supply compatibility information

Lt Grey Closed Lock: Addon has provided compatibility information

Addon compatibility helps you determine if the addon supports the current version of the game that you are running. You will see further information in the tooltip for the addon, and incompatible/out of date addons will be labeled in the main addon list.


ACP is based on the work of 2 other projects rMCP, which is a version of MCP modified by Rophy, and MCP originally by Saien.

    I was struggling with ACP too, but have migrated to since then. Highly recommend to anyone who can't live without addon manager :)

    Will probably stick to it even if ACP updates, so right now I want to thank the ACP Author for all the work and generally for rising consciousness in people that huge addons list don't need to be a mess any more :)

  • #1132

    Yeah im also a bit tired that all addons are disabled after i change a set, and its on every char then. So i have to first load ACP and then select teh set, reload again, and thats on every char, every time :(

    So i think i will try the other one out, but thx a lot for your great work :)

  • #1129

    for me the issue with the fix is that basically it seems to always load every addon.  I really missing logging in and each toon has their particular set of addons working, and if they want to swtich to a pvp set of addons . or raid (less addons)  they can open it up and choose a saved named set. 

    I dont find it particularly helpful to have every addon loaded.   Some addons are helpful for certain situations.  and otherwise are visual clutter or drag down the system.  

    I also am not a programmer tho i did try the fix and appreciate the effort made to find a fix.  

    So right now i enable all addons in log in screen.  at that point all toons will load with all addons enabled.  UNTIL... i choose a saved set on a particular toon.   then when i switch no one has adds ons again.  

    I miss it working properly.  Right now either i work with all addons enabled at all times or i have to use a few load screens.  yes.  its something one can get used to ..  but i honestly dislike it especially when i forget and am logged in already because then it takes a few load screens to get things back to "normal"

    To those expecting people to magically pull out every step to the solution from thin air let me remind you that at one time you did NOT know how to do this. MOST people coming here for this current problem are looking for updates and don't know anything about coding.

    A HUGE thank you to the person who came up with the solution(Mikeon), I don't include you in the overly judgemental crowd.

    For the rest of you who don't want to wait for an update and like myself do not think like a programmer, need things explained and/or may even be dyslexic such as myself  I highly recommend you download the previously mentioned freeware Notepad++, it's VERY helpul.  These are the steps I went through on my Windows 7 computer.  YMMV

    Start>Computer>Local Disk (C:)>Program Files (x86)>World of Warcraft>Interface>AddOns>ACP>ACP.lua

    Right click on ACP.lua and left click on "Edit with Notepad++".  It will open.  Scroll all the way down to line 1536.  You will see the text:


    It needs to look like the example below so type in the additional characters needed to look EXACTLY like this:


    Click SAVE and you are done! Remember, these are directions from my Windows 7 computer. YMMV.

    Sorry for the slow replies, and thank you for your help.

    I have pushed an update with these changes.

  • #1130


    For me, this doesn't work...maybe, line 1536 isn't the only one necessary? I still have no addons on my other chars!

  • #1128

    I am a programmer, so i assume, that i am able to think like one and i think, that "Do it yourself, you know the solution" is no appropriate answer! It is frustrating to not get an answer for nearly a month from the project manager and we don't have to accept this.

  • #1126


    Well, I tried this solution and am getting errors.  I'll submit a ticket and then try one of the other addons suggested.  It's too bad because I really liked this one.

  • #1127

    The solution worked fine for me.. Thanks for the info. Maybe you typed it wrong? 

    EDIT: ok, perhaps it didn't. I'm not getting errors like you, but it's still disabling addons for all characters.

    Sure would be nice for a comment from authors in one way or another if a fix or not a fix incoming.  Just to know that they KNOW its broken ?

    Plz i reeeeeeeeally miss this addon working properly !

  • #1116

    Is there any ETA on a fix ?

  • #1115

    Thanks for addon but this so painful

    I have some problem with this addon. When i switch my character my whole settings changed and if you don't fix this setting nobody won't use this addon this so useless. When i used v3.4.15 i saw this bug and i removed this addon.v3.4.16 omg again have same problem i thought you fixed it but no ! 8 millions downloaded ..What are you doing guys ..

    I tried to find that line.  But I am on a Mac.  the file you describe is an exec.   however i can open but i dont see that line or anything similar.

    I too am dealing with 3 load screens per character switch.  it is errr  a bit on the aggravating side.  I miss it working right !

    Fix for addons disabling on all toons when changing addon sets:

    World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\ACP\ACP.lua Line 1536

    Change DisableAllAddOns() to DisableAllAddOns(UnitName("player"))

  • #1123

    Thanks a lot for the fix!
