Player/ Raid Member Dungeon X/Y position

I've been fixing up the seemingly abandoned Dungeon Maps addon. As I like the Dungeon Maps from retail.

I'm trying to make it so that in addition to showing the maps, I can display the raid/party/players on the maps itself.

I'm using Leatrix Maps as a bit a of a reference guild, but I can't seem to figure out how to get the X/Y postitions for players yet.

I am mostly running scripts in game to save on the opening and closing of the game to reload /update the addons.

I found this "GetPlayerMapPosition()", but I can't get it to print anything but "nil" in game right now while in a dungeon.

I'm quite new to LUA, and addons in general in WoW, so I apologise if I've made some stupid mistake.

Player positions are unavailable inside instances.


Addons can no longer access the positions for player, party, and raid members in instances.
This Patch 7.1 change is a part of Classic, since Classic has been forked from an 8.1 version of the game.
