About MyRolePlay

MyRolePlay is a roleplaying UI AddOn for World of Warcraft, developed by Etarna at moonshyne.org. 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.)

- Removed "of" from House section of the profile (Same goes with the Italian version)
- Put a visual character limit on the Titles section: Now allotted 44 characters on the viewing window. Still at 77 at the hover window.

I'm sorry it's not much else, but I've been extremely busy for the past couple of months. With Lent and the fact we're remodeling the house by ourselves, it's proven to be a rather interesting time for the family. I figured I shouldn't upload another "just making sure it's updated" thing without having SOMETHING in there.

    Name changing no longer works on ElvUI as of ElvUI version 8.10. :( I don't want to lose my UI, but I also love my custom names.

    A fix for the ElvUI chat issue... If you replace the files in Addons/ElvUI/modules/chat with http://ge.tt/49l0lRG2/v/0 (the files from an earlier ElvUI) it will work.

    I cannot see surnames in /s or /y but I can see them in /e

    I am totally stumped. Can someone please help me.

    I usually play on a pve normal realm I have this installed for my RP realm one thing I noticed when on my pvers none of the rp people I run into has Mrp so I question one, he tells me he does have the addon.

    seems it dosnt show in xrealm (dungeon finder/battlground) groups, is this intended ?

    I've been trying to fix the xrealm issue Blizzard caused for this addon some time ago. Bor (Author of XRP) seems to have found a slight fix to it a little bit ago for his addon

    As for MRP, I'll probably have to tear it down to the foundation and rebuild it again to make the fixes, which will also inadvertently make it much easier for me to make updates and add more features. This will take some time, so until further notice, the old coding format will stay available up until the day I finally make the new code workable and useable for the public.

    I suggest the addition of a drop-down menu for race selection.  It's getting really bothersome to see how people misuse the "Race" field.  I imagine it was meant for freeform race selection, so that people could play dragons and high elves (but, really, why would they?).

    I'm seeing people put in "Patchwork Forsaken", "Lordaeronian Human", and "Preserved, not a [Death Knight]."

    Call me a purist, an elitist, or whatever, but I'm not sure this level of liberty for special snowflakes was intended. 

  • #1002

    As Nork put it, this would be a very bad idea.

    Yes, you're going to run into people who take that bit overboard. It happens. MRP is a window into how the person roleplays, and the addon is usually the first contact you make with that player. At that point, best make your own judgements on roleplaying with said person.

    That, and it wouldn't be fair to the other hundreds, if not thousands of other roleplayers who know exactly how to roleplay what they put down in there without stirring the wrath of stricter lore abiders.

    So, no, I shan't be making any drastic changes to the racial option.

    There are plenty of people who play non-traditional races that can pull it off just fine, and there are reasons to use the race to dismiss the idea that the character is, for instance, a Death Knight. Many orcs and trolls especially play Death Knights to have access to customization options that are not otherwise available to them, to play other tribes/clans. (Non-death knight orcs can't appear to be Blackrocks, and trolls can't be Sandfury.)

    There are also those that fully write out profiles for "NPC" characters to aid in large-scale story and plot development. The people who play different races would end up just putting it at the beginning of their actual profile, and all this accomplished was a "cleaner" tooltip.

    Ultimately, the addon should not become restrictive solely because of special snowflakes. Though I tend to look down upon those who use MRP as a way to make an ass out of themselves (or their terrible ideas, sure you can call me an 'elitist' too), the last thing we need is for an addon to tell us how to develop our characters.

    Don't RP with people that write characters you don't like. If anything, take solace in the fact that this amount of freedom just gives someone like you an obvious red-flag that they are not someone you want to interact with. Not every dragon is a bad and lorebreaking RPer, nor can I fathom why a human specifying their heritage would bother you enough for such a suggestion.

    Regarding a way to change your class I think XRP does it right since the class color stays so one can distinguish it. If no space can be made in MRP then could functionality that allows RP classes from other mods be seen by MRP users be added? Just keep the colors and people will be able to tell between them.

  • #995

  • #993

    Okay so I have been using MRP for awhile now without any problem, but lately with my main (Only my main, no other toon) I can edit my MRP and see mine, but unfortunately i cannot see others' MRP or can they see mine. I have tried reinstalling MRP, no go. I reinstalled all of curse client, as well even reinstalled WoW. I don't know how to further look into repairing it from here. Any suggestions. I only have this problem on a single toon, all my other toons are fine with MRP.

    Wow, das hat mehr als doppelt soviele Downloads als Total RP 2, obwohl auf dem größten deutschsprachigen RP-Server Die Aldor kaum Spieler mit diesem Addon herumlaufen. Fast alle Charaktere mit Flags haben dort Total RP 2. Aber evtl ist MyRolePlay auf englischsprachigen Servern beliebter, wahrschinlich weil es das Addon nicht auf Deutsch gibt. Mittlerweile nutze ich Total RP 3 und für die kurze Zeit, seit dem dieses Addon existiert hat es auch schon beachtlich viele Downloads im Gegensatz zu Flag RSP 1. :)

  • #992

    Danke für die Benutzung Total RP 3 ;)

    Hey, I'm having a BIG Issue with my MRP. So everytime I log into a specific character, this being a Monk, my first and FAVORITE monk, my MRP is always getting wiped just on this character. I've tried reinstalling the addon numerous times, logging off and back on but still nothing is working. It's REALLY agrivating. Please Help!
