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.

    I'm having this problem too, & I don't use SpamMeNot. :(
  • #782
    then see sylvanaars post. perhaps you have a similar addon like spammenot?!
  • #783
    Ah, turns out it wasn't Prat too! Seems like nDisableLoginSpam was the one. Thanks!
  • #765
    Well, seeing the screenshots and how much my frend tells me to get it, this must be good.
  • #764
    nj, ive heard its X-perl, if ur using it, update it, or the other thing is they probly have to be in the same city as u(ogr, stormwind, silvermoon, Undecity, etc.)

    I believe its a blizzard thing... People who don't use add-ons cant click them either.
  • #769
    It is a blizzard problem. 100%

    I am kinda confused, as I still have the "joined channel" bug as can be seen here:
    I already tried the report script thingy, as can also be seen on the screenshot, that nothing is there. I have un- and reinstalled Prat. Removed the saved variables and tried again. All to no avail.
    Strangest thing is the fact that I only have it on that character and not on my alt on another server.
    Any suggestions what I can try to get Prat to work properly again?
  • #759
    Okay, after more than an hour of searching I finally figured it out. Only took me disabling/re-enabling all addons twice...
    But apparently Speedometer is bugging Prat. Which is confusing as only thing it does is display attackspeed, so I don't get why it interferes with Prat, but w/e I have solved my problem.
  • #763
    I don't think its speedometer. But it is wierd that disabling it makes it go away.
  • #756
    i got an issue i might just be dumb and missing something but every time i try and change the font size and press ok it goes back to the original size. I have change the UI size of my interface can that be the reason? thanks for ur help.
  • #755
    I'm a long time user of Prat but with 3.1 and the latest version I have a very slight problem. When I'm in a party or raid, a bar will appear at the bottom middle of my screen with a party/raid member's name in it. This name periodically changes without rhyme or reason (it isn't the party leader/master looter/my target/the last person I whispered or anything that I can tell). I've disabled other addons and narrowed it down to Prat. Does anyone know which module this is and/or what it's doing?
  • #780
    Please update your SexyMap addon, that name plate shows the last person who clicked the minimap, and that was your minimap addon's bug that it was showing the name at a wrong place. The latest version of your addon will fix that.
  • #760
    Here is a screenshot of what is happening: you can see another player's name at the bottom of the screen; this is someone who was in my raid. The frame stays even after I leave groups.
