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: http://www.wowace.com/projects/prat-3-0/tickets/

Forum thread: http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=14004

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've been having this error message since the update. I really like this program. Hope it is an easy fix.

    For all that is holy... who do I have to kill to turn off the sounds that play every time someone whispers me in real ID or fight in combat?  Being spammed with 'fatality!' a million times is driving me mad and I can't find where to turn this OFF. 

     I should add that when I type /prat and look at the sound option, sound is grayed out and I can't click on it.

    Thanks.

    The Fatality! is coming from Bug Sack not Prat. There is a bug in Prat as it seems to have issues with Real ID whispers, but the noise you're getting is from BugSack.

    Is there anyway we can move around the Social button that show how many of your friends are online?  If I put my chat box all the way in the bottom left corner, it puts the social button in the upper right corner of the chat box which is in the middle of my pets health bar.  I'd rather not just have to hide it, but currently its an eye sore.

    The solution for the real id whisper problem provided by http://www.curse.com/users/Sarahtje/ in this forum post http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/prat-3-0?page=3#c3220 worked perfectly for me - thanks.

    I get an error when I log in and receive the guild message of the day. I also get an error whenever someone messages me although I am not sure if it is the same one it seems likely.

    I tried but was unable to copy it.
