Prat 3.0  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.5.8 (925)
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.

I was having problems on the beta realms.

What was happening:
Pretty much just the addon spam would scroll by; I would get no channels, no /say or /p and no "you have invited XXX to your group" messages. I could still see my "/s hi" chat bubble, but nothing in the window.

The problem was "CraftList2" taken from Files.Wowace.Com (i just unenabled it since i can now link my while craft window to people)

I am still having trouble keeping my 16 Point Font Size

I'm finding that with updated Ace3 standalone, it's causing issues as it's not using your native Ace3 by nature. Providing feedback for you to identify. Editbox is the first domino that seems to have been effected.

Love Prat 3. But have come across one particular issue:

The "Frames" module doesn't seem to do anything. I set minimum and maximum values, and yet the chat frame can be resized to anything within what appears to be Blizzard's defaults.

Note: I posted this to the WoWAce thread as well, as I'm not sure which gets more attention.

Love build 19, however the Edit Box broke. The edit box is on the bottom of the window instead of the top. I enabled the module, but when I reload the UI, there is no options for it.

EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out, I have a newer version of the Ace3 libraries and it breaks your addon. If I use the Ace3 libraries that you provide then Prat is fine, but I run into issues with other addons. Not sure if you can use the Ace3 standalone library instead of your own.

Edit, it is definetly Prat causing this.

Sounds really wierd. White background? Have you delteted your chat-cache.txt in the wtf folder?

One thing i notice is that with the highcpu pullout you dont have 2 column frames. Check that you have colored timestamps on.
I did a bug report because I figured out what was going on...

I have been busy, but I have to get something together in the next couple days.

Personally I like the buttons in the chatframe - that was something that Prat-2 did, and it even wrapped the chat text around the buttons so they didnt overlap.

One thing i notice is that with the highcpu pullout you dont have 2 column frames. Check that you have colored timestamps on.

I'm working out what will be in the beta that I am rleasing this weekend. I'll try to address as many of these issues as possible.

It is much better if it can overlay the chat box.

I have tested this in Live (2.4.3) and Beta (build 8982), same issues.

To get it to overlay, I enabled "Buttons" in the "Modules" and reloaded WoW and then unchecked "Show Arrows", but left "Show ScrollDown Reminder" checked.

Also I was using the HighCPU pullout with all the builds.

Here are the fullscreen shots of what's cropped below:
81860 Fullscreen
82088 Fullscreen
82149+ Fullscreen

This is what it was doing up until wowace build 81860.1:



This is what happened with build 82088 and 82095:



This is what it is currently and started with build 82149:
