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.

    Is the author still supporting this?

  • #3108
    Great addon, but a single niggle.

    Now as an Rper the word Land tends to come up alot, I like to keep Class Coloured names on to make for easy reading but we have a DK in our guild called Land and I can't see any option to make prat Omit specific names from it's system.

    Any help?

  • #3107
    having a random issue with this addon...
    when using factinizer addon and prat together i dont get faction gain in chat.. but when i disable prat i do.. this has never been a problem before, so no ide what happend now.. didnt change anything in any of them and still nothing.. (this was after a blizztool repair)
  • #3105
    Prat seems to reset scrolling to 1 per line (I have it set to skip 3 lines in Set MouseWheel Speed in the Scroll Module) after a while of playing. Have to /reloadui to fix it. Any ideas why this is happening?
  • #3104
    Great addon, just wondering, is there a way to sticky channel differently in each tab? ie if you had one tab for /g and one tab for /p it would automatically pick up /p as that tab and /g as the other?
  • #3102
    Can you make an option to move the tabbuttons to the bottom of the chatframe instead of above?
  • #3101
    Super addon! Would it be possible to add a function to change which way round the player level and name appear - ie so it can display as 'ToonName:85'?
  • #3099
    Getting the following error when trying to change glyphs - /reloadui fixes it.

    I've filed tickets 527 and 556 on the taint issue with Prat with more information from the taint log on where the taint is coming from.

    I'm pretty sure the errors in those tickets are what cause this to be one of the addons that sometimes requires you to do a /reloadui to change glyphs or set raid markers.

    Having the same problem.
  • #3096
    can I keep longer records with this addon, and is it possible to add a scroll bar?
  • #3095
    Hi sometimes when in combat casting or something, the chat opens by itself. I don't click the Enter button. Using the default keybindings.
