Prat 3.0  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.5.10 (943)
by: sylvnaaar [More]

Prat is a chat addon framework, and collection. It consists of 30+ modules which each add some functionality to the WoW chat interface. There is literally a module for just about everything chat related. While large in size, i have been working to keep the runtime memory usage down, and eliminate the costs of the unused modules without littering the addon directory with a slew of folders.

For the options menu, type "/prat", or if you have a broker host mod installed you will get a launcher icon.

You control the load behavior of modules via the module control screen. You have 3 choices "Don't load", "Disabled", and "Enabled"

You can report any bugs you find here:

http://www.wowace.com/projects/prat-3-0/tickets/


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



For those interested:

There is an additional folder Prat-3.0_HighCPUUsageModules.

Note: These features use CPU, so they have been placed in a special folder so that is 100% clear.

3.4 - Live and Beta compatibility

3.3.7 - Various server name related fixes/enhancements, e.g tab-completion (in bg's for example)

3.3.6 - Fixes issue where you were unable to change the sound for the new GROUP_LEAD type

3.3.5 - Adds GROUP_LEAD as an option in the sounds module.

3.3.4 - Prat now comes with a selection of "chat-friendly" fonts. So you don't have to worry about downloading a separate font collection which may only have 2-3 fonts which are usable for chat. Prat includes 9 chat friendly fonts in addition to the fonts Blizzard provides.


3.1.0 - updated chat filter code to work on live and ptr

-- Change logs are included in each zip --

Addition fixes, and other fun stuff
--

Changed the way the addon is packaged. Pulled out the high cpu module for you.
---

Added global name coloring, There is no option for it at present, it gets enabled when you use the HighCPU use pullout.

Other minor tweaks and fixes. Please continue to report any issues you may encounter.

---

Ace3 is included in the zip - it should fix issues with the config not opening on beta. I haven't tested on live.

I added a simple button module, it was hastily added, because I have been so busy playing on beta.

Fixed the copy bug which would hang the client for a few seconds then give an error.

----

Added ability to set the incoming and outgoing whisper colors independently via the blizz ui. currently this is part of the experimental module

Fixed chatlink spamming.

Anyone in the community have any ideas on how to get the Whisper echo (so you can see what you whispered) working again? I remember having this issue back with WotLK came out, but don't remember what the problem was.

It makes the text not (when wrapped) not continue under the timestamp, but under the start of the actual sentence. Right?

Ok so with this new version the two folders "Prat 3.0_HighCPUUsageModules" and "Prat 3.0_Libaries" when loaded into my addons folder and logged in game they flag as out of date - even though ive JUST downloaded this version any idea why?

Oh and also while in raid tonight i could see itemlinks in raidwarning they just came up as "common" in the chatbox

Any chance of getting a feature added to hide the scroll arrows on the sides of the chat box? I've been using CFE because yours doesn't do this, unless it was changed recently.

I'm playing in a RP server, and I am using Prat 3.0. The problem I have is that I cannot change the language. The default blizzard's chat I could do it with a right click on the chat's tab. How can I do it with Prat?

I thank in advance.

(Edit: When I say language, I mean orcish, tauranhe etc...)

I have a problem, nothing being linked to me is working in any channel...

I'm new to modding and this is my 1st time using Prat but no weapons, tradeskills or anything at all being linked in trade or anywhere else is working where I can click on them.

Its like my mouse button is going right through Prat but everything else works fine.

I'm getting no errors so anyone know what I can do?

ACP is a combination of alot of authors work. Specifically I didnt upload here because rophy's rMCP is here, and ACP was essentially the same code + some ace related enhancements. i'd want to ask rophy about it - I wonder if hes still around.

Doesn't seem to like to hold the Outline setting. If I reload my UI it reverts to normal, despite Outline being selected in the Font options. when I call the options window.

Sometimes it also reverts itself seemingly at random.

What you see is apparently not what you get.

TellTrack just keeps a small window with a list of people who have sent you a pm recently.

Can't figure out which module might do it for me?

Thanks,

Prat doesn't have this.. I use Fubar_Whisper_Fu for this.. But then again, you need fubar for that. You could also get WIM I guess.
