Overview

This addon gives you the possibility to add names to other peoples chars. You will then see these names behind the char names in chats (guild, party, raid, whispers, battlegound), making it somewhat easier and more personal to communicate with your mates. Also, never again forget who you're talking to! Especially useful in larger guilds or raid groups.

If you find any errors, please leave a comment below, or, even better, open a ticket on curseforge.com. Also, in most cases an error code will be printed to the chat window. It would help a lot if you tell me this code.

Features

  • Add/delete alternative buddy names to/from other peoples chars (not limited to chars that are in the same guild or faction as you)
  • Display these buddy names in various chats, like, e.g., guild chat, party/raid/BG chat, whispers, and also when a user logs on or off.
  • Should work with WoW in all languages (although I only tried english&german up to now)
  • Configurable
    • Configure in which chats the buddy names will be added
    • Choose whether to display your own buddy name in chat or not
    • Configure how buddy names are displayed in chat (default: "char:buddy")

Version History

v0.8:
Got this working again with connected realms and Draenor addon. On the other hand, also removed guild synchronization. Code was working good, but very hard to maintain. Also, no idea if a significant number of people was ever using guild synchro, thus possibly not worth the effort.
v0.7:
Guild synchronization (deactivated by default)
v0.6:
Working configuration dialog, integrated into Blizzards Addon Interface Dialog
v0.5:
* Removed broken RealID/Battle.net integration
* Included working guild synchronization beta code (deactivated by default, not documented)
v0.4:
* Included RealID/Battle.net integration
* First work on guild synchronization
v0.3:
* Completely changed the internal name substitution mechanism from event filtering to AddMessage() hooking
v0.2:
* Included localization, added german as language for status messages
* Changed internal database format
v0.1:
* Initial version, some basic functionality
