Prat 3.0  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.5.15 (962)
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 didn't see anyone say it in some of the most recent comments so I figured I'll make a post myself.

The paragraph module doesn't seem to work. I'm attempting to align my combat log to the right, but it always stays alignment left. Not a big deal, but I figured you'd like to know.

For some reason it is not remembering channel colors, with the module enabled

I change trade to a diff color, and logout or reloadui, and its back to white

How do I get the input field to be above the chat frame? Been trying to figure out how to do this for about an hour now.

EDIT: Nevermind. Without knowing how really, I figured it out.

Nice work. First time user and I love this addon already.

Only issue i have is the random colors for ppls names are kinda ugly and make it hard to read. Could you think about making them brighter so I can read ppls names without squinting?

I love the new prat 3.0! It's fantastic

Is there any chance of getting an option to move the PopupMessage frame? I really love it but when I say my own name it'll pop up and with Afflicted for arenas/pvp it'll keep popping up and covering important bits of my screen I'd just like an option to move it further up or just.. anywhere really.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for the hard work on this great addon!

I hate the new options menu.
I want my fu bar plug in back for it
and the arrows on my cutom tabs and combat log are being odd,
on my general tab they are to the right, on the other tabs they are to the bottom left this is frustrating becuase it's covering up part of the text.

Also ...
Alts
I use to have my alts read like this:
[70 Salome](Tereesa): <--- the alt would be the class colored (in this case white for a priest), and the Alts name (Tereesa) would be class colored (in this case blue for a shaman)
I really want this feature back. I'm a GM of a moderate size guild full of players with many alts. When someones alt logs in I want to see who the main is they belong to. Please fix this.

first off, I like the new look of the options menu.

now here's the question
Is there a way to make the bracket color around the player name as well as the timestamp match the channel color? This was the way I had the old one set up, and I rather like it.

Thanks!

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.
