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 there any (easy) way to delete the chat log?

    The latest versions of Prat keep track of the chat log even after a /reloadui, and I DO NOT want that!!! I want the log to be deleted, I want the history do be lost (personal stupid reasons). So is there any way to do this via a command, or via the interface? (I refuse to remove log files from my HD every time I want to clear my log).

  • #3047
    I can looking for the exact same feature. If Prat can't do this, can some other addon? I'd really like to know.
  • #3049
    I've found a few add ons that use to do it but they haven't been updated in 3 years.

    The "import from guild roster" option for Alts is great ... Unfortunately, if the roster has "'s friend", it assigns their friend's toon as an alt. I hope this gets fixed in the near future.

    I'm not sure why, but in a previous guild, they used:


    [A] was an alt of a player in the guild, [F] was a friend of a player in the guild, and [S] was an alt of a player not in the guild, but was sponsored because they contributed through alt raids or PvP. This would be a nice organized system for automatically linking players in only 1 button press.

    Wont you able to open the GM tickets before with /gm or was that some other mod i can't think of back then.

    Prat and X-Perl are no longer compatible, it seems. Yesterday I was able to see whoever was logging in and out of the game, and able to shift+click their name to get more information about that player. Now though, neither show up. This is the error I found;

    [16:26:02] X-Perl UnitFrames - Error:Interface\AddOns\Prat-3.0\addon\addon.lua:374: Usage: GetChannelName([channelIndex] or [channelName])
