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: 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.

    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.

  • #3293

    This addon has updated twice on the alpha version and still no update to the ChannelSticky module. Please make the following changes to the ChannelSticky module:

    line 475

    DELETE

    elseif GetNumRaidMembers() > 0 then

    REPLACE WITH

    elseif IsInRaid() then

    line 477

    DELETE

    elseif GetNumPartyMembers() > 0 then

    REPLACE WITH

    elseif IsInGroup() then

    So, from 470 to 482, it should read:
    function module:SmartGroupChatType()

    local _,pvp = IsInInstance()

    if pvp == "pvp" then
    return "BATTLEGROUND"
    elseif IsInRaid() then
    return "RAID"
    elseif IsInGroup() then
    return "PARTY"
    end

    return "SAY"
    end

    Thank you.

  • #3291

    TrustAU:

    Edit the playernames.lua file and at line 1118 where it says GetNumPartyMembers, change it to GetNumSubgroupMembers.

    Chufas:According to "http://www.wowpedia.org/Patch_5.0.4/API_changes", the function "BNTokenCombineGivenAndSurname" has been removed.  Since the error is attempt to call global, a nil value..doesn't it mean the problem is that specific function?
