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.

    It didn't work. =`( Any other ideas?

    Let's try to reset all the flagRSP settings for your character. This will erase all your flagrsp data that is associated with the character that cannot see character sheets anymore. If you need to keep your character description then copy/paste it somewhere before you do this.

    1. Quit WoW.
    2. Locate the following file: {WoW Installation Path}\WTF\Account\{Your account name}\{Your realm}\{Your character}\SavedVariables\flagrsp.lua
    3. Delete this file.
    4. Restart WoW.

    flagRSP will create a new file with default settings for this character once you are logged in with that avatar again

    Eet works! Eet works! Thanks a ton man.
  • #55
    O.O I just made a new toon and it works fine on him...
  • #50
    Thank you so much for maintaining this classic AddOn. I've tried FlagRSP2, MyRolePlay, and ImmersionRP, and none of them work as cleanly and intuitively as good ol' FlagRSP.

    I am having trouble with moving my infobox. The "tip" suggests that right-clicking should allow me to move it, but it remains locked in place. I tried disabling all other AddOns, but to no avail. Is there a command to unlock the infobox?
  • #51
    I just had to take a look into the code to figure this one out.

    The infobox is only movable if its state isn't set to be always visible. I don't see a reason for that so I'll put this on the todo list.

    Up to the next version, please do the following steps:
    1. Make the infobox only appear manually (/rsp alwaysinfobox)
    2. Move the infobox around.
    3. Make the infobox appear everytime you select a target, again. (/rsp alwaysinfobox)

    i´m not quiet sure if this is an issue or not but for me its realy anoying:

    everytime i want to see the flag of someone i have to click on the small button (not the minimap button) to open the flagbox for this player, i have to do this for every player i want to look at.

    so the default is that the flagbox is "off" for every player i want to look at, so i have to open it manually for every player, everytime i log on.

    is that how it should be and is there a command or something to set the flagbox to "shown" as default?
  • #49
    Please try the following command: /rsp alwaysinfobox

    This should make flagRSP show the infobox by default.
  • #46
    I am having trouble with the addon in a very strange way, as it only affects 1 character.

    The RSP button (for this character alone) is in a strange position, and while I can click the icon, doing so has no result. The GUI does not appear. I have un/reinstalled FlagRSP 1.0.8, and have attempted to load the character without the addon, reset my interface (and deleted all the local files for that character), then logged in again with the addon activated...but the button is still in the same (unusual) place, and does not respond when clicked.

    Any solution for this problem?
  • #47
    flagRSP has two buttons. I assume this is about the button that should be attached to the minimap and has a scroll as icon?

    When you deleted all character files, did you also erase this one?
    That file stores all data that is related to $charname.

    Do you use other addons than flagRSP? If yes, have you tried to disable them?
  • #45
    Usually you should see the character description when targeting a player using any rp flag addon. The description can be toggled off and on by clicking the little icon that should be visible at your target frame.

    If you don't see any descriptions at all try this:
    - type ''/rsp resetinfobox'' into your chat line. This should reset all infobox settings to default.
    - check if you are connected to the xtensionxtooltip2 channel. flagRSP usually connects to it automatically, but may be unable to achieve that if you already use too many channels. xtensionxtooltip2 is used to broadcast und receive character information. If you're not joined to it flagRSP will never fetch any descriptions.
  • #44
    I've tried several RP addons, and I always come back to the original (and best): flagRSP.

    Thanks for keeping this project updated and alive!
  • #41
    I have a problem. Every time my addon attempts to connect to the communication channel (xtensionxtooltip2), it prompts me for a channel password. This is getting very annoying, and I don't know what to do about this. I'm on the US Emerald Dream server, Horde side.

    Any suggestions for a fix? Other people have been complaining about it, too.

    Seems as if someone has captured the data communication channel on your realm and protected it with a password. You could try to whisper the channel moderator, but chances are high that he is doing this on purpose. Wait until that stupid sob logs out.
  • #42
    Ah, and yes I'm using the latest version available at this time.
