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.

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.

    This is actually cause by Sexymap. There is a setting that lets you see who pinged the minimap but it isn't currently working. You can test it yourself by pinging on the map because it won't show your name next to the ping. The solution is just to turn off the option under the Sexymap settings.

    isnt that the voice indicator? that someone is speaking in the blizzard in-game voice channel?
  • #750
    Will compatibility with Telltrack ever be implemented? I really don't like how WIM makes windows all over the place, and it doesn't automatically create a chat frame with the other tabs.

    Just stumbled upon this great addon, and it works very good in my custom UI which I'm building atm, but I was wondering if there's an option to disable/hide the button (it looks like two small pages with blue edges, overlapping eachother) for ChatFrame1 Text? By default it's up in the left corner of the chatbox. I don't really need it you see, and it's a nail in the eye because of the artistic theme I'm trying to apply on my UI. Sorry for the noob question, but hopefully anyone can answer it quickly.

    copychat module
  • #752
    The button kinda bothers me as well. I'll disable it for now, but is it possible to move its location within the chat frame? I've looked through the options but fail to find anything.

  • #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:
  • #739
    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?
