Mary Sue Protocol

Description

The Mary Sue Protocol built-in module for Total RP 3 contains the implementation for the Mary Sue Protocol, a protocol used by all major roleplaying add-ons to exchange profile data in a standardized way, allowing a compatibility with (Total RP 2, XRP, MyRoleplay, FlagRSP, etc.)

Mary Sue Protocol fields and implementations in Total RP 3

  • AE : Eye color. (blue) Total RP 3 allows users to indicate a specific color for their eyes, to be more explicit.

List of known add-ons using the Mary Sue Protocol

Correctly escaping color codes

We recommend to render the text as is, meaning as intended by users. The colors inserted by Total RP are chosen by users and have a meaning. But if you do want to remove colors from the values sent by Total RP 3, here's the best way to do so :

local valueWithoutColorCodes = valueContainingColorCodes:gsub("|c%x%x%x%x%x%x%x%x", ""):gsub("|r", "");
