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.

    Is it a link? Maybe it's unusual or something. I'd have to see it

    Well it's not a link like but half the people who post a ts3 info have so you can just click on it like a link without like 3312.3123.6612.3 so you don't have to copypaste it but just able to click it, and there always seem to be [ ] around it, but whatever I do, I cannot make my ts3 info work as a link. Am I doing something wrong, or do I have to do something specific to make things works as a link?

    How can I get rid of the boxes in the middle of the screen that pop up when one of my friends come on line?  I find it very annoying.

  • #3796

    There is a module PopupMessage, try that.

  • #3792

    I can only assume it's Prat causing this, but When I right click a players name to report them for spamming/names etc., the option isn't there, at all. 

  • #3803

    I'm having this same issue. Disabling Prat brought back the report option.

  • #3790

    After years of using this addon (I literally can't stand looking at my chat frames without this), I was really excited to see you add the option to remember frame positions with the profile. This will save so much time on new alts not having to position three different windows and their sizing, every time.

    I did however run into a little snag that makes me sad. I don't know if it can be fixed, but hopefully! The snag is thus: If I have a particular tab grouped together in my main window on Profile1, and want it to be its own, un-docked window, in Profile2, the positioning of said tab does not save. It remains docked no matter how many times I drag it off the main window and re-save the Profile2.

    Another minor thing, unrelated to what I wrote above, is, when using Prat with addons such as MRP (MyRolePlay) or FlagRSP2, we have the option to add last names to our characters. So my toon, Ahnji, could be Ahnji Misanagi. Without Prat loaded, and with any other chat addon I've tried, both the first and last names appear when typing in /say or in emotes. However, with Prat, the last name only appears in emotes. It seems something in Prat is blocking the custom last names when using /say. As I mentioned, this works fine with other chat window addons I've tried so I am reasonably sure its not an MRP or FlagRSP issue. Any thoughts what this could be? And if it can be fixed as well?

    Cheers! And thanks for the great addon.

    Still can't click the tweet button in the chat box to tweet after taking a screenshot, selfie, getting an achievement or looting an item. Will this be fixed soon?

  • #3789

    Prat has been fixed. It is another one of your addons.

  • #3791

    Prat is up to date and disabling Prat immedaitely returns twitter icon functionality, I tried it on an alt with Prat as my only addon and the button doesn't work while Prat is enabled and works fine when that only addon is disabled.

    Hello there,

    Is it possible to block sentences in trade chat? For example, these spamming gold sellers are using marks (circle, skull, cross, triangle etc) in their advertisements and I would like to block every sentence that has those in it. Like (CIRCLE) cheapest gold on

    3.5.15, whispers to linked realms do not seem to work when right-clicking over toon name (with abbreviated realm) in chat.

  • #3784

    Def an issue with /target

    Only happens at certain times, I'm not sure what the cause is at all because it seems to be related to re targetting?

  • #3783
