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 second this!

    It makes Prat unusable if you want private whispers in their own tabs.

    Do like it as well but anytime I start up the game or reload I have to switch back and forth between the tabs to see any text. Is there anyway to fix this? dont know what setting to tamer with :P

  • #3808

    I recently installed this app and i love it. the only problem i am having is some of the chat fonts do not change. Was wondering if anyone else i having this problem and if anyone knows how to fix it. Was going to read comments to find out but there are a whole lot of them lol. dont want to read that much. 

  • #3807

    Using a saved profile from one toon to another doesn't work. Am I missing something?

  • #3806

    trying prat after using another chat addon for a long-time, i've been looking for a feature that allows me to see a linked item when hovering over it in chat. where would i find that? i'm using WIM as well which adds that functionality, but prat somehow doesn't play nice with that part.

    thanks for any help! :)

    Does anyone know how to fix prat 3.0 so when i link recount numbers it wont show every single number. It should only show a shorter number like 43.5k not 43,500. Anyone know how to fix it so when i link it the numbers are shown up exactly like recount shows.

    Hey, great addon still! The 'Scroll Down Reminder' keeps on appearing when I enter something without being at the bottom. Is this a bug?

    I usually disable all the buttons but it keeps reappearing. The arrow you know, the one that when clicked, takes us all the way down.

    Hey. Been playing around with the invite functionality in Prat 3.0.  It's so bugged on my side I don't know what to say.

    If I enable either alt-invite or invite links I can't invite players at all. Using those methods or by right-clicking and selecting invite.

    Now if I go in and disable "player names" module and re-enable it again without alt-invite or inv links enabled, then inviting players in the normal way works.

    So basically, alt-inv and inv links aren't working for me at all.

    Love the AddOn, though I wonder if there's a way to only colour server names for connected realms and leave the others bland?

  • #3794

    I can't get it to make my ts3 info into a link, I've tried using () [] and {} around it, and nothing works, what am I doing wrong?

  • #3795

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

  • #3802

    I don't know what the format of the link is so it is hard to say. You can PM it to me.

    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.
