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 there,

    I would like to have my editbox font changed. I don't mean the font of the text I write but those of texts like "[1. General]". How do I do that?
  • #1450
    i dont believe that this is doable via the GUI, i think you would actually have to dive into the code.
  • #1437
    I am having same trouble as keepercr, the popupmessage now does not work. I cannot find where to set controls to have officer chat or other custom choices use pop ups. Only whispers are using pop ups, and I need to have officer chat do that as well. Please help explain how to do that.
  • #1434
    need to add an option to have the text input field on top or bottom. all in all awesome addon!
  • #1438
    Well, if you open the Prat options, in the Display Settings tab, Editbox section, you can change the 'Attach To...' from bottom to top. That might be what you're after.
  • #1441
    haha, my fault should have looked at the option more carefuly!! thanks awesome addon!
  • #1432
    When I change the settings in prat to move the edit box to the top, it appears to work for a short time, but when I change toons or relog to the same toon, its back at the bottom. When I check the settings, everything is as it should be, and to get it at the top again I have to change the settings to bottom and back to top. Is this a known issue in 3.3 or a conflict with 1 or more of my addons?
  • #1430
    Could you add Smilies to this? There is an add-on with curse to do it, but when i installed it, it wont let me see any chat. Maybe you could easily fix it, and add it as a feature to prat?

    P/S.- What im wanting is for it to show an actual yellow smiley face when you do :), or :P, or :D etc. Like what you can have a e-mail do. And it will be clinet-side only.
  • #1429
    I'm having trouble with popupMessage stopped working after implementing 3.3, please fix this problem.
  • #1428
    Hey i unlocked the window to make the width smaller but every time i try and slide it like i can the height it jumps to about [ ] that wide and i have to reset all settings to get it back to normal help please
  • #1426
    Will this mod make all party chat appear in a bubble over my head? Tanking it is hard to see the squishy sqeal for help sometimes.
  • #1422
    Is possible and if yes then how to move those buttons to the left or right position of chatframe?
  • #1420
    Is there a way to move arrows to left side or outside the text on the right whithout turning the arrows off?
  • #1418
    It says you can move the chat window around but i cant seem to figure it out. am i just to blind to see it?
  • #1413
    This is a great addon but I am missong one important feature that I think should be implimented. maybe it's already there and I overlooked it. my apologies for that. but is there an option to Highlight your own nickname in chat messages, so when someone calls your name in chat that it will appear at the top of the screen? like ChatMOD does?

    Thank you in advance
