Merisioux
Version: 0.29
by: seebs [More]
This addon lets you enter description, biography, and various roleplaying-related flags to your characters; other people running this addon (or a compatible addon, if anyone writes one) can then see these values. (WoW players: Think flagRSP or ImmersionRP or whatever.)

Right now, the prefix/override/suffix/title things, the "currently" field, and the description show up in tooltips, and there are tags in the tooltip for whether you have bio and meta tags defined, as well as a list of flags you've suggested. Basically, if you edit your data, and then click "save", your character will show that data to other players who run the addon. If you target someone, and they have data, there will be an "RP" button near their frame. You can move this with the slash command, if you don't like the default placement.

To use:
/meri -h --> newbie help
/meri -v -> display version
/meri -e --> edit your own data
/meri <name> --> look at <name>'s data
/meri --> look at your target's data
/meri -f --> list flags
/meri -c flags --> clear flags
/meri -s flags --> set flags
/meri -l --> list players
/meri -L <flags> --> list players matching flags
/meri -b --> toggle the RP button
/meri -t --> toggle the tooltip
/meri -B CENTER -X 25 -Y 60 => move button to +25 x, +60 y, from the center of the portrait bar.
/meri -S <field> <value> => set field to value
/meri -C <text> => set "currently" to the given text.
/meri -n <player> <note> => add note for player

The new -c/-s options allow you to change flags using a slash command, so you can create a macro that could, for instance, toggle your in-character state.

Changing target with the window open will show the new target's data if the new target has data and you do not have unsaved data.

NEW: LFRP feature. To enable:
1. Use /meri -r. Set the flags you want people to have for you to RP with them, or that you want to exclude. Click "ENABLE" if it's not already clicked. You can also click the LFRP button on the main window.
2. Add at least one channel to broadcast queries on: /meri -R [channel name]
3. Hit the ping button, get a list of people on that channel with the LFRP feature enabled who match your flags. Names will bring up their bios.

LICENSING NOTE: I am too lazy to maintain listings for this addon on multiple sites, but do note that the license terms are intended to permit copying and derived works. In particular, I explicitly permit people to upload copies of this to other addon sites if they wish to.
0.6: Fix problem with checkboxes being unclickable.
0.6a: Meta/bio fields weren't displaying right locally.
0.7: Don't display previous character's data on login.
0.8: Remove typo accidentally introduced with 0.7.
0.9: Add version-checking; starting with 0.9, if you get RP data from someone with a newer version, you get notified (once the first time you see a given version, once per UI load).
0.10: Extra bulletproofing (I hope) against overwriting your data, though I've never reproduced it, update LibMerisioux to stop saving timeout information in savedvariables.
0.11: 1.9 TOC stuff
0.12: Internal updates, SL ToC stuff.
0.13: Found a case where the RP button would show up after you'd clicked off a target. Fixed.
0.14: Add -c/-f/-s.
0.15: Fix handling of enter key in text fields for 2.2's key event changes.
0.17: Major updates to address new event system, also improvements to the protocol to allow use of server-side storage. May be a little unreliable at first.
0.18: Update to slightly newer LibMerisioux, now restores server-side bio if it's newer than your local one, or you don't have a local one.
0.19: Add -b/-t options, update to pick up a new libgetopt for the new event model.
0.20: -BXY options to move buttons, age/height/weight fields, improved diagnostics, improved readability and display, made button smaller.
0.21: Fix focus and display bugs with new fields.
0.22: New "currently" field.
0.23: Fix layout issue.
0.24: Slight layout tweaks, addition of gender/player-gender flags, clarification of "lore" checkbox, add -h (help) and -v (version) options.
0.25: Focus bug, overly-long field bug. Fixed! Thanks Norras@Faeblight.
0.26: LFRP feature.
0.27: LFRP debugging and improvements.
0.28: Custom field option (you can name the field yourself), and player notes.
0.29: Better handling of possible errors from the storage API.

In previous versions of Merisioux, I moved the RP button to the top left of the target window with
Code:
SetPoint("TOPRIGHT", UI.Native.PortraitTarget, "TOPLEFT", 128, -7)
How do I accomplish this with the completely remodeled button placement code? I messed with it for about 30 minutes, and I can't get the button or the 'RP' text to land in the same place.



Of course, I ask and I then figure it out (for default button size):
Code:
/meri -B CENTER -X -81 -Y -55
And if I change
Code:
meri.unitbuttons.buttons['player.target']:SetWidth(50)
on line 1184 of the Merixioux.lua file to
Code:
meri.unitbuttons.buttons['player.target']:SetWidth(75)
for a slightly wider RP button, I then need to use
Code:
/meri -B CENTER -X -70 -Y -55
to get the button in the right position.

Heya, this may now be fixed. It was probably related to changes in how special keys (like tab) were handled. At least, I've been using it successfully more recently.

Just some input....

Big RP fan and enjoy your work so far. I just wanted to bring to your attention a AddOn that I used back in my WoW days. It was called TotalRP. Its now on it's 2nd version and chock full of little RP goodies. Since you kinda have a monopoly on RP UIs at the moment, you should definitely take a look and see if you cant get some inspiration! I know the RP of Rift can be amazing and with your mod, it will make it even better! I look forward to following your work and seeing how you progress! Cheers!

Hmm, it's working for me. To check, are you doing "/meri e" or "/meri -e"? The - is used for options; "/meri e" tries to show the data for a player named 'E'.

That could be a bug introduced by my attempts to fix the reported edit problems, although I haven't encountered it. I'll try to have a look Real Soon.

Check the addons button on the character select screen and see whether it shows the addon; if it doesn't, it's not loaded for some reason. Assuming you're on Rift 1.8 (I am not sure whether all parts of the world are), it should show up if it's in the right directory.

If anyone who's been overwritten like that could get me the Interface/Saved/SavedVariables/LibMerisioux.lua file, that'd be super handy for looking at.

Oh, weird.

Boy, that's gonna be a heck of a lot of fun to track down.

Oh, that's... weird.

The first part (still showing previous character's description) is a known issue that should be fixed in current versions. Basically, it always showed the last information you saved, whether or not it was for this character.

I haven't seen anything where it would override your data, though. In theory, if you have the editor up, and you have made no changes, when you target someone it'll switch to showing their info, but that shouldn't allow you to save; it should disable all the interface parts and just be a read-only display of their info.

Hey! I'm really happy to see this project being worked on, though we need more people using it!

I had a wierd issue with it today, though. One of my friends logged on their alt, and the alt was showing their main's information. So, she changed it and wrote stuff for her alt.

Now, when I targetted her to read what she wrote, it changed MY information to match the information of her alt. My info was completely wiped out and replaced.

I'm not sure why that happened, but thought I'd let you know!

For simplicity's sake:
Character A has description, then logs on Character B.
Character B logs in, but shows Character A's description.
Character B sets information of her own.
Character C (on a different computer and account) somehow inherits Character B's information, losing their own.
Character A logs back on, and has Character B's information now too.
