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.

  • #1061
    Since there seems to be no way to change how player names are colored, would there be a way to color the brackets, or add some sort of effect that shows that it's someone I actually know, and not some random git cause Blizzard decided to throw in a two-cent 'upgrade'?
  • #1058
    I seem to have problems with Alt Names they break when ever there is a special character in the name fx. "Elüne" becomes "Ne" missing the "Elü" part.
  • #1112
    same problem here!
  • #1057
    I have this weird problem that when im in BG I cant see battleground chat if someone not from my party group says something there is a chat messege : You are not in Party, I tried everything and cant get that fixed, anyone else having this problem ?
  • #1054
    I have one character who can see colored names on all channels now, and one who can't. Setting them to use the same profile doesn't fix the issue. Is there something I'm missing?
  • #1053
    I have been trying to figure out how to move prat to a different part of the screen and cannot get it to work for the life of me how do i move it?
  • #1052
    I am seeing the same missing block of text. About 6 lines, with scrolling continuing above the blank area. If I rightclick and Reset Chat Windows, it clears it up for that session, but the blank area is back next log in. This only happens on 1 account, others are fine.

    Also, I get some chat text that flickers very rapidly... usually a longer line that is under the blank area.
  • #1042
    I'm having a weird problem. On my default General tab I'm missing about a six-line block of chat text. Things scroll up through it and show up above it, no amount of moving the window around fixes things. I don't get this problem on any new window that I create and I've wiped the addon for a clean install as well as deleted settins and reset everything to the default profile. No actual error message is popping.

  • #1043
    And somehow I fixed it. Not sure what changed, but it's gone. *headdesk* Sorry for the bother.
  • #1050
    :) no worries

    could be due to saved variables cleaning
  • #1041
    Im not getting the popupmessage anymore :( when somebody says my name.

    I want to get names in party or guild chat coloured but not for channels or stuff like that. Make prat work like blizz default name clolouring
  • #1037
    First of all thanks for this amazing addon. Since patch 3.2 I reinstalled Prat, the latest version. And now whenever I accept a quest or enter an instance I get a spam of "Creating #####" (# be taken as numbers). I wish to disable this feature. Any ideas?
