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.

I get the following error when going to Prat -> Display Settings via the Interface Options menu. This is using the latest checked out copy of Ace3 WotLK branch and Prat-3.0 trunk.

Code:
[2008/09/04 19:13:05-155-x8]: AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:1634: AceConfigRegistry-3.0:ValidateOptionsTable(): Prat: Display Settings.args.Editbox.args.arrowkeys.1: unknown parameter

This occurs on the WotLK beta realms. There's also a slightly different version of the error if I issue the "/prat" command, but I think they both have the same root cause.

I'll try and get some testing on the live realms as well.

That really looks like the error you get when you use the live version of ace3 with on beta. Maybe you have the live version embedded someplace.

You might also want to try deleting your saved variables.

So much low-hanging fruit in an alpha that reporting bugs is almost like slapping a quadraplegic with a moist salmon; however, I quite liking what I'm seeing in terms of features and Prat seems like has a better, er, "grasp" of the full range what's needed than Chatter has (Chatter has some cute ideas but I've been missing Prat).

My only real worry is the per-channel configuration. In some places it seems devoid and others...a bit confusing. I'm attributing this to alpha-state and the desire to 'configure multiple channels at once' (which is nice) but ultimately I'm scratching my head at what I'm seeing.

You will need a program called TortoiseSVN to "checkout" the files into your Interface/AddOns directory.

Yeah - that's what its for though. Report away.

I'd much prefer reports on the wowace thread i tend to read it more often.

http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php?topic=14824.0

From the pre-alpha thread:

In alpha, new functionality will be added, and the out-of-the-box setup will be defined. Existing features will be re-evaluated, and some may be removed, or changed. This part of the project has no set time frame. Once the out-of-the-box setup has been fully tested, and works, we'll ... begin beta.

Sorry, I did go through and make sure nothing was embedding Ace3 and I was still getting the error. So I went through and started turning off mods.

As it turns out, the problem is Carbonite Quest. That mod is all encrypted because they make you pay money for a "better" version of it. I can only assume they embed Ace3 in their encoded crap or somehow interfere with the previous error I was getting. Anyway, turned the mod off and it works fine now.
