About flagRSP MoP


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:

  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
    1. 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
    1. 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

/rsp purgeflaginterval X

(X in seconds). For example clears /rsp purgeflaginterval 4838400 all flags older than 2 months (the default is 14 days).


  • 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 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.

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.

    Bleh, got an error when trying to view my own tool-tip. Could be a bug or one of my numerous other add-ons messing with it. I have my usual suspects. Time to experiment (ticket filed on CurseForge).
  • #39
    I tried to repeat the error with only FlagRSP WotLK and Swatter running. Had the same error. Sure makes for a much shorter 2nd report! :P
  • #35
    Are you sure you're running the latest version of flagRSP? The PositionSlider issue was introduced with WoW patch 3.0.8 and fixed in flagRSP WotLK version 1.0.7.

    flagRSP WotLK comes with an own friendlist that is independent of WoW's built-in friendlist. There are rudimental import and export functions to exchange data between both friendlists, but up to now they only carry over names - no notes.
  • #37
    Well, I'm getting exactly the same message even though I just got the newest version. I even tried deactivating the unit frames, in case that should be the problem but it still isn't working.
  • #40
    I am currently not able to reproduce the problem. Could your please provide further information? Do you get the same message by typing "/fl show"? Have you tried deavtivating all other addons you have installed?
  • #33
    I'm almost certain this won't be given it, but...

    I've just looked at your competition, (though I prefer the look and feel of flagRSP WotLK) and I've been told that MyRP will read the profiles from flagRSP2 and flagRSP WotLK, however flag (both) will not read into MyRP. Is there any update to look forward to that may convince those who use MyRP to switch over?
  • #36
    To clarify things up as there seemed to be some confusion about flagRSP's compatibility to other RP addons:

    flagRSP WotLK is compatible with MyRolePlay, flagRSP2, and ImmersionRP. They all share the same channel and syntax for data exchange purposes. Only MyRolePlay serves an exclusive second data channel to provide extra information (such as eye color or height) that is not read by flagRSP2, ImmersionRP, and flagRSP WotLK.

    flagRSP was the first RP flag addon out there, released in early 2005. Thankfully, all other addons adopted its grammar. Up to now, they are all capable of sharing information about:
    - first name
    - last name
    - title
    - character description
    - roleplaying style (beginner, casual, normal, fulltime)
    - status (ic, ooc, looking for contact, storyteller)

    The answer below referes to import functions for users that currently use MRP (or IRP or FlagRSP2) and intend to switch over to flagRSP WotLK. Users switching over from other addons have to re-enter their character profile.
  • #34
    No, there are currently no plans for this. At the moment, we have four roleplaying flag addons out there. I just read a few days ago that a fifth is in development. Maintaining import interfaces for all these is something I do not want to accomplish. I'd rather spend the time for different things in flagRSP WotLK. And a character profile does not consist of that much information that it would take you plenty of time to re-enter it. Copy/Paste is your friend.
  • #29
    I guess FlagRSP WotLK is being replaced with FlagRSP2 for that one seems to be updating a lot more. It saddens me, for this one looked a heck of a lot better, but I am using the other one until there is an update to this one.
  • #32
    You can stay with flagRSP WotLK if you like. Not having updated this addon for 7 weeks does not mean that there will be no new version. :)

    flagRSP2 just made its step to a whole new code base. It's common that at this stage there are many releases as new code always comes hand in hand with some minor issues.

    flagRSP WotLK has been updated today to provide compatibility with WoW 3.0.8.
  • #28
    Patch 3.0.8 seems to have broken all the drop-down menus in the addon. I had absolutely no problems before the patch. Multiple people seem to be having this issue, through the other users of the addon that I have been speaking to.

    If this problem can be resolved, asap, please? I cannot change my roleplaying flag, nor can I change guild display options or friend states.

    Thank you in advance!
  • #31
    flagRSP 1.0.7 should fix the drop down list errors.
  • #27
    How do I reset the position of the character description tooltip box? Someone had an overly extended description and when i clicked to minimize it again the thing ended up disappearing all together (my guess is that it minimized itself off screen). Now I have no idea how to get it back.
  • #30
    As of flagRSP 1.0.7 you can use "/rsp resetinfobox" to reset the description box to its initial position.
  • #26
    All WoW addons are installed to Interface/Addons/..
    All saved data is stored in WTF/Account/..

    So, if you delete or overwrite scripts in Interface/Addons none of your settings will get lost as they are stored in different folders.
