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.

    With Prat enabled, for me there is no option "to private chat" for a whisper. Every time I log in, I get the following error :

    1x AceConsole-2.0-91094:2582: AceTab-2.0: Cannot register frame "ChatFrameEditBox"; it does not exist
    AceConsole-2.0-91094:2688: in main chunk

    Don't know if thats the reason.

    When enabling "Prevent dragging" for tabs and then trying to drag a tab to test if it works it made the game crash.

    Is there a way to make the buttons hide when chat screen is not active but show when it is active? I only found where to hide them permanently. I want them to be there when I'm using the chat and go away when I am not using it.
  • #2198
    is there any way to change the background of the chatboxes to stay a solid color and not fade to being opaque when you take your mouse cursor offa it? And if there isnt a way could i reccomend adding that :D
  • #2195
    I usually had my chat frame all the way down in the left corner but that is not possible anymore. Where the arrows, social button and editbox are there is some kinda invisible border so i cant drag it all the way to the corner is there any way to remove that?

    feature request:

    abillity to move the social button
  • #2194
    This ^

    Also option to move around the pop up Friend ID box when someone come online/offline
  • #2196
    You can move that box (formally called the "toast frame") with TinyToastMover:
  • #2199
    Hate to derail this thread but you don't allow comments on your own addon's page. I have been trying to use your mod for the past few days and it doesn't seem to work properly. It works great for moving the toast but it seems to reset the coordinates every time I log out. I'm not throwing any errors so I have no idea what the problem might be.
  • #2202
    An addon that doesn't break would be wonderful.
  • #2264
    ameyaselene has since fixed the bug and tinytoastmover works wonderfully for repositioning the toast frame

    Hello, I'm having the same problem as Rikeni (can't Tab through whispers), I've tried deleting both Ace3 and Prat and installing them again from Curse, but that didn't help at all. Do I need to clear some files manually of something? Thanks!
