About Prat 3.0

Prat-3.0 is a chat enhancement addon for world of warcraft 3.0.

It is made up of 30+ smaller "modules" which each provide additional functionality, and can be enabled or disabled individually.

In game, type /prat for a menu.

Bug reports:

Forum thread:

Prat has just about every feature you can think of, and then some. Really. When I get some more time, I'll try and put together a full list (Even I have lost count)

(Thanks to Dreamsight for this partial list)

  • Change arrows, buttons, mouse scroll for chat scroll, scroll speed
  • you can add color per channel, color per lvl, color per class
  • timestamps
  • timestamp color
  • whether to show timestamp (what format the timestamp should be in)
  • whether to show players lvl
  • you can select the option for channel "stickys" (last channel you used you auto use when hitting enter, that sort of thing – or last thing someone said)
  • change the looks of the chat's editbox - as well as where it appears (you can even undock it and move it to where you'd like it to be)
  • chat fading, fading delay
  • You can change the font to a list of fonts, add an outline to it, monochrome it (if you don’t mind messing with files a bit you could prolly even add other fonts to that list)
  • change the chat frame/chat box appearance
  • set Chat history
  • set channel abbreviations
  • set brackets and color(or something instead of brackets)round player/lvl
  • alt invite option (press keyboard “alt” button and click on the player’s name to auto inv them)
  • raid icon
  • invite links
  • info keeping
  • url copying
  • full chat copying + options (html,bbcode, plain, forum) + copy button
  • allows pop-up msgs
  • enables tell target /tt
  • Alias options
  • altnames options
  • you can enable/disable all prat modules - dont have to have the ones you dont use running
  • change chat sounds (incoming and outgoing as well as per channel)

Its predecessor, Prat-2.0 has been around since the TBC release in 2006. This new version seeks to improve upon some aspects such as memory use, but still do so without creating 30+ small folders in your addon directory that you have to manage.

While trying to reduce resource utilization, it is also important to note that some people prefer the features, and don't care that an addon uses 500k more. I have been trying to isolate the most resource intensive functionality into the Prat_HighCPUUSageModules folder. You can enable or disable it per your preference.

    Hi, is it possible to block content from the Combat log? Such as the Incoming filter acts, blocking some content, but from the Combat log.

    Thanks! I love Prat!!!

    I've been seeing the following lately:

    Date: 2009-08-24 21:13:27
    ID: -1
    Error occured in: Stubby
    Count: 4
    Message: Error: Original call failed after running hooks for: ChatFrame_OnEvent
    ..\AddOns\Prat-3.0\services\chatsections.lua line 412:
    attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)
    (tail call): ?

    They started showing up after I opened a GM ticket. Could be a bug tickled by them trying to contact me.

    Stubby, Prat, and WIM all seem to be involved somehow. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Also having the issue with shift-clicking names to get /who info not working. Clicking appears to do nothing, but if you manually open the 'Who' window, the person you queried will be listed.
  • #1080
    I'm having the exact same problem... It's kinda annoying to open up a window for a little info.
  • #1082
    Also having this exact problem. QQ
  • #1087
    Same problem here, using prat 3.0 3.2.4
  • #1091
    Update WIM. WIM now uses the new Who Library. That is why is wasn't working.
  • #1093
    Im running the latest of all the addons WIM and prat and my shift click doesn't work either. what did you do to get it to work exactly?
  • #1077
    couple of issues for me.
    1. alias doesnt appear to work for my Guildevent Manager channel
    2. shift clicking a name in chat, usually get the /who info on it, doesnt appear to work now

    Also getting a few .lua errors like this one

    hey i was wondering how can i remove the chat frame1 button, if it is even possible
  • #1068
    I'm having an issue where the two column chat causes most of the text in the textbox to disappear. When I disable the High CPU usage part of the addon, it works fine. when I enabled it, it works until I enable two column chat... Perhaps a bug?
  • #1066
    I miss the Font: ABF
    Where is it?
  • #1111
    It was a part of Recount, no recount removed it and its gone. I figured it out few days ago and just installed old version of recount with that font in it. I'm not sure but maybe u could somehow just try to instal font by it self in some folder :(
  • #1067
    You probably use Recount as well, check the Recount changes:

    - Removed the ABF font per request from Curse (via Arrowmaster)
  • #1063
    Fixed it, my bad.
