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.

    Can't whisper party members in random groups

    Every time i try to whisper someone in my party, I'm met with a "that player isn't currently playing" message in the chat box or w/e it is.
    I think what's happening is that somehow it's only recognizing players from my realm and won't allow me to whisper players from other realms.

    Hi, first of all thanks for this awesome addon i've been using it for ages .
    I'm here to ask some help about a problem i encountered when trying to install an "all-in-one" interface ( i uninstalled it very quick tho ) : here's my issue.
    I can't see rolls on chat frame anymore, i just see the result (who won the roll), for exemple : Player won [object] - 38 (need)
    I can't see who picked up "greed" or "need". Is there a Prat filter that have been enabled in the "all-in-one" interface that i need to disable to see rolls again ?

    Sorry for my poor english and thanks for any help
  • #2988
    It is another addon. Try disabling spam addons.
  • #2984
    I have made a custom window frame for trade chat, but it doesn't retain the Prat option of the main frame (colored names, levels, etc). How do I make this frame have the same options of my main frame?

    Dear sylvanaar, thank you for this wonderful addon I really love it!
    There is one (although I think pretty marginal) issue, if you could solve it it would be so awesome! I am Hungarian, and our weird language uses a lot of special characters. Prat does not show some of them (more precisely, it puts some even weirder characters istead of it). These are: ö ő ü ű ú. I dont know if this is possible to fix, but I would really appreciate it! Thanks in advance.

    Try a different font.

    I love this addon but I have one problem, every time I press enter it automatically opens /BG chat as apposed to the last chat used, very annoying as I have to type /p or /g before everything. I couldn't find anything in the settings other than the sticky chat things but changing them had no effect.

    Any idea how to solve this?
  • #2986
    you can try the smartgroup feature in the sticky module. Then use the /gr slash command.

    Other than that, I don't know why you are having trouble.

    all my text in prat is flashing and it is causing the screen to tare in and around the text box
  • #2977
    Prat is causing a fatal error when I try to move my chat frames.

    Error#132 (0x85100084) Fatal Exception
    Exception: 0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION) at 001B:00511C26
    The instruction at "0x00511C26" referenced memory at "0x000000CC". The memory could not be "read".

    It happens when prat is the only addon I have enabled, but it only happens when I have more than 1 custom chat frame. When it's just general, combat log + 1 other, it doesn't do it.
  • #2978
    Thats why the chattabs module is disabled by default. I have no idea what is causing that issue - but addons are not supposed to be able to crash the game. If they do, its blizzard's job to fix.

    This would be easier if the problem was happening to me, since I could troubleshoot it some, but I can't unfortunately.
  • #2981
    OK. I definitely was reporting it. Maybe I'll get it to happen again and write something up in the "explain what you were doing when this happened" box. I'll see about turning off the chattabs module. Thanks!
  • #2971
    I recently installed PRAT and have enjoyed it thoroughly aside from one issue I am having.

    I cannot click any player names, items, achievements, etc in chat. That means no click to view items, no right click names to open the menu and invite, etc.

    I have combed through the options and cannot find anything that would disengage this function. Am I doing something wrong? Could it possibly be another addon messing with it unintentionally?

  • #2974
    You have your chatframe set to non-interactive in the blizzard options.
  • #2982
    I am a dummy! Thanks.
