About MyRolePlay

MyRolePlay is a roleplaying UI AddOn for World of Warcraft, developed by Etarna at It lets you make a roleplaying “profile” about your character that other users of MyRolePlay (and other compatible “MSP” RP AddOns) can see in the tooltip and a more detailed window. It’s fast, light, and powerful.

  • Spot other roleplayers at a glance, see which RP AddOns they are using, and get a quick overview of their character in the tooltip!
  • Change your character’s name; add a last name—or whatever you wish!
  • Mark your preferred style of roleplaying (casual, full–time, beginner, or a custom style…), or your status (in character, out of character, being a storyteller…)
  • Exercise your creativity further—describe your character’s appearance! Eye colour, height, weight…
  • Give people a taste of your character’s story, if you wish—add biographical information like their age, hometown, birthplace, and maybe even some tidbits of history to make people hungry to discover more by interacting with your character and roleplaying with you? Or hide others’ biography, if you prefer to discover that kind of thing through interaction.

What if your character’s appearance changes, say when they wear different clothes, or shapeshift into different forms? No problem: simply add another ‘profile’, and just change the fields you want to be different in that alternate profile. Select freely between the default and alternate profiles to suit your character’s mood, dress, form and so on! If you name a profile after an equipment set (Blizzard’s, ItemRack or Outfitter) or a form (druid, shaman, warlock, priest or worgen) MyRolePlay can even automatically change profile for you when you switch!

MyRolePlay has tremendous scope for creativity. It’s extremely fast and flexible—a roleplaying AddOn that lets you express your character however you wish! Use it as an aid to roleplaying, fleshing out your character’s “feel” or just helping you stumble into more roleplay… how you choose to use it is up to you!

Editing your profiles

Bring up the Character Sheet (“C” by default), and select the new MyRolePlay tab underneath. Click on a field to edit it.

Alternate profiles management: + to add a new alternate profile, - to delete or clear the profile, R to rename it. Fields that appear dimmed out are ‘inherited’ from the default profile—simply select to Change the fields you want to modify from that.

Further options (such as a choice of units to display height/weight) can be found in the Interface Options, AddOns tab, under MyRolePlay.

Where can I see other people’s details?

When you mouseover someone who has MyRolePlay (or another compatible roleplaying addon), you’ll see some of the extra roleplaying details they added in the tooltip, plus if they use MRP or another RP AddOn such as GHI (GryphonHeart Items) or T (Tongues), which is a handy hint that they're a roleplayer!

Want more information about their character than the tooltip provides, like the full description or history (where applicable)? Target them and click on the “MRP” information button that appears by the target frame, to browse their profile in a resizeable description window. (Or set a key combination in Key Bindings to bring up that window, or: /mrp show <charactername> or just /mrp show when you have them targeted.) You can target yourself and view your own profile as it appears to others in there, if you like, and if you want to move the MRP button, right-click to unlock it, drag it where you want it, and right–click again to lock it in place.

(Users are reminded that your RP profiles are public content which may be seen by other players and Blizzard, and are subject to the Terms of Use, and policies of the realm(s) you play on. Please have fun and remember to exercise your creative freedom responsibly and respectfully.)

Hot patch time. It'll stop bugging you for an update now.

    Hey, I need some help with MRP. After 6.0.2 launched, it said some addons aren't compatible and what not, so I assumed I had to update them. So, I update them. All the AddOns I updated are all working fine, besides MyRolePlay. When ever I go offline and come back online, my MRP profile is wiped. I have tried re-installing it, trying to download an older version, but nothing is really working. Please help.

  • #965

    I'm having the same problem on ONE of my characters.  I didn't even update with the new patch.  My other characters still have their profiles.

    Also, I'm still having the problem of not being able to see other people's MRP's, only mine.

    Would love some help.  Thank you, much!  ^^

    A friend of mine has been trying to use this addon for awhile, and when she installs it, the MRP pages itself do not load up since 6.0.2. It's worked for her in the past, but ever since patch the addon has not loaded up. Any known fix?

  • #963

    Update on my friend, it's only happening on one character who has the xtensiontooltip2 channel, that have any effect on it? She tries leaving but it just comes right back up after reloading.

  • #950

    When will this add on be up to date for WoD?

  • #961

    As I posted earlier, this mod IS working for 6.0.2, as reflected by the authors upload and statement to that effect. The out-of-date alert is caused by an oversight in updating the .toc file. This can be quick-fixed by simply editing the .toc file number to 6000. You can find by navigating from your WoW folder:

    World of Warcraft > Interface > Addons >Myroleplay > Myrolepay.toc

    (It's the first line in the file, use notepad to edit it)

    EllypseCelweBelore pointed out that MRP char sheet windows can't be moved due to Blizzard shenanegans (new code and stuff :P), but this is a minor issue and has little impact on the mod. Enabling the mod doesn't cause any crashes or lua errors, and you can edit data without problem. So hopefully the quick fix should suffice until the author has the time free to work on it :)

    I apologize again, this week's been hell for me, sister dropping by for an unexpected visit and all. She dropped by last Saturday, and I've only had now to try and amend MRP as best I can. I'm sorry for being so inconvenient, I've just had so much on my plate nowadays. I should have an update again by Sunday (My sister fancies herself a computer genius, and thought MRP was a virus and promptly deleted most of my work. This is why I hate computer illiterates).

    Ouch. Now that sucks.

    Thanks for letting us know and i look forward to the update :)

  • #944

    I have had problems for about a week and a half now on one of my characters and only one. I have recently moved her from Horde to Alliance and since I did that, MRP kepts wiping every time I logged of her..

    I have tried to reinstall and everything I could think off.. I have no clue what to do anymore and even my guildies seems confuzzled over this..

    Anyone that knows what to do?

    A note, I have a Mac.

  • #955

    Yesterday a friend helped me with deleting my file for my character on my mac, and that helped... till this morning.. then everything was wiped.. Shit happens, but for an evening I was just so happy that everything was working again, no matter how many times I logged out. But this morning all was gone.

  • #957

    That was I tried to do, but it was the same this morning again, everything being wiped on only that character.

  • #956

    Can you try just removing just the "WTF/Account/ACCOUNTNAME/Server Name/Character/SavedVariables/MyRolePlay.lua" file? I'm curious as to whether it's something more broadly going wonky with your character's WTF folder, or just with the one specific file.

    I still haven't had time to dig further into the issue, but I'll try to do so sometime this weekend. With any luck it'll happen to one of my characters, so I'll have a very convenient test subject.

  • #945

    A user of my addon ran into a similar issue, and it seems to be a Blizzard bug of some sort. I haven't had the time to track down the root cause yet, but there is a way to get back to a workable state (if a bit drastic of a solution) assuming you're facing the same root cause.

    The solution is to wipe out that character's individual WTF folder. The folder is stored in the game directory under WTF/Account/ACCOUNTNAME/Server Name/Character, and moving it out of there (say to the desktop) is a good way to quickly check if this indeed works for you. I'll see if I can't find a less dramatic solution later, once I've had some time to thoroughly examine the contents of an affected character's WTF folder.

    Good to know, thanks for sharing that information with us Bor :)

  • #951

    Come to think of it, config changes to one of my nonmsp addons isn't sticking.
