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.

Are CustomFilters partially broken? I have a few that work great (blocking System messages- "Joebob has died." and "You are not in a raid group") but I can't seem to make one work to filter NPC yells about the Org zeppelins. Trying to replace/highlight the phrase "The zeppelin" just never does anything. I can filter them fine if it's looking in whispers incoming or outgoing or anywhere else fine, just doesn't seem to look at NPC yells at all. Any ideas?

edit: Seems the "EventNames" module has to be enabled for CustomFilters to catch creature_yell events. This also makes it do some new formatting to player emotes though that I didn't want.

Can anyone shed some light on the Change Log where it states

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

How do I find this "experimental module", because there is not one on my modules list to enable.

Chat - linked items issue

Good day.

Have anyone experienced a problem when they can't click on a linked items from chat window?

I think it worked at the start of 4.3 but not since yesterday? Is it my local problem or maybe a version issue or something?

It reminds me of activating a minimized window on your desktop almost.

Any ideas on what it is/how to make it normal opacity all the time?
bump?

Anyone to add mouseover tooltips for items linked in chat without needing another addon (to prevent conflicts). The chat module for LUI has this but the rest of the functions are pretty buggy.

New possible feature

Is there a way that chat distance could also be manipulated as an added feature? such as setting how close or faraway the chat in say shows up for other users vice versa? This could possibly be used for role playing enhancement on RP servers when large crowds are present and chat is overlapping with other chat etc.

I have a friend with a *really* long RealID name.
Been trying to use CustomFilters to shorten it with no success.
The post on http://my.curse.com/blogs/sylvanaar/...omfilters.aspx gave me some ideas but i cant seem get it to work.

Any ideas?

Cheers!

tab borders

I have a little request, can it be possible to customise tab borders? I don't want anything fancy, in fact I just want to remove the borders because they are so ugly.

Thanks

cursor movement in new realid or whisper chat tab

Hi, I found a little problem. I set my whispers and real id whispers to show in new chat tabs, but when I pressed enter to open the edit box under those chat tabs, I still needed holding the Alt key to move cursor. (I had canceled the option "Using Alt key to move cursor" in edit box module already.)

Having reinstalled WoW and Prat along with the other AddOns I realized a change in the behavior of Prat concerning Tab-Completing names.

When I Type "/i V" a small window pops up with the only person starting with V that's online in our guild and a "Press Tab" message below. If I click that name I'll invite the person. If I press Tab once though it prints a list of every toon starting with "V" that's in the guild. Pressing Tab again cycles through each and every toon starting with "V" (eventually getting me to the right person). I recall Prat priorizing to/exclusivly auto-completing to those who're online (which really makes more sense since I can't invite or whisper offline toons anyway).

Is this a setting with Prat or a change in a later version or something different alltogather?

Sorry if this question has already been answered before - I wonder is there a search function for AddOn comments?

Strange. I see it just fine. Try with only Prat running.

Prat doesnt currently process the events that those messages are associated with.

I looked into it, it looks more involved than I would like right now - I did the same thing with chat notices and it turned into a larger project than I wanted.
