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.

    well. i found the problem for y i couldent see any of it. and it was SpamMeNot that made it like this. i turnd it off and everything is back to normal again
  • #774
    Thank you! Works now
  • #740
    I noticed that with the latest version of Prat 3.0 that instead of saying [Soandso has join channel] it says [Soandso]: Join Channel. as if they actually typed out "Joined Channel." themselves.

    Is there anyway to change that within the options? (I couldn't find anything related to it.)
  • #745
    There is no option to change it, but you can use the customfilters module to make it look however you want. There is a brief tutorial here:

    Ok new issues with 3.1.5. I'm melle attacking mobs and every time I gain a skill point and it shows in chat, my game freezes up for a brief moment. It's really annoying if you're leveling something from 1 to 400.
  • #738
    I'm having the issue of not being able to see text at all with this addon installed. The issue just started about 10 minutes ago and I can't figure out why. I updated and bam, it won't work. Any suggestionss?
  • #731
    Prat-3.0_Libraries and Prat-3.0_HighCPUUsageModules are both outdated
  • #735
    Thanks, i completely forgot
  • #737
    5g :D
  • #730
    One small issue...every time I log in, the "Show Arrows" put the arrows on only ONE of my chatframes (I have the main one and a custom one, arrows show on custom), and they appear on the right side...if I uncheck and recheck the option, it puts arrows on the left of both frames. When relogging, it does it again so it's a minor annoyance. Nothing game or addon-breaking.

    Also, after last night's update, it still did it :/
  • #751
    I may just put prat's old buttons module in the high-cpu section, it was a little better at handling the buttons than the new module. We'll see what i have time for this weekend.
  • #732
    Also...I cant access the tool you posted (because I also have issues with clicking professions) because its saying I need to login. When I try to register, it brings me to curse and says my email is being used (obviously). It wont let me login either because the information is invalid, and I cant request my password because it doesnt recognize the email address that it says is already being used -.-
  • #734
    I have added it in Prat-3.0/pullouts, in version 3.1.4. You can get it there.
  • #741
    Tried using it because I can click my Inscription link, but nobody else can...Got this
