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.

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.

    when I get a bnet whisper (realid stuff) I get the following error (every time I get a tell)

    Every time I get a whisper or someone says something, I get a 2 second lag. As a healer, this really sucks. Can this be fixed? I don't have many add ons so I know it's not too much lag from that.

  • #3309

    For some reason whenever I post something in say /1 it does a double post. This does not happen in whispers or party chat. Has anybody ran acrosss this issue?

     

  • #3327

    I am getting this as well not sure what is going on with it. Drives me nuts because my recruiting spam really becomes spam when it posts three times

     

  • #3310

    Same for me.

  • #3323

    The only instance I've had this occur to me has been in cross realm zones.  seems fine for me in non-crossed zones like capital cities.

  • #3318

    same

    Sometimes I can't see my whispers to others and can't see whispers from others. It happens several times a day. And there's no any lua errors show up. Does anyone have the same situation like me?

  • #3306

    Hello. Is it possible to make fast chat switching ? For example if i press double click on the [G] it will start chat in guild chat, if i press double click on [P] it will start party chat. So you dont have to write dont /g or /p /.... And one more thing. Is it possible to make fast whisper mode, like i just double click on the Nickname or Real ID its start chat with that pearson i click, to make it easy to switch between chats and whisper. Thanks !

    For those getting the RID errors, go into Module Control and DISABLE the "Player Name" module.  /reload and you should be fine until the mod is patched.
