Thanks for a great addon. I haven't been able to tell yet that it's still in beta. :)
I would like to ask if there is a way to remove the "alpha-add" to the background color when hovering over a chat window. It's a default Blizzard feature and it always annoyed me. Basically, I just want chat windows that are always fully transparent.
Yes. Just right-click the chat frame tab and change the background. There's a transparency slider there. This is also a Blizzard function I believe (it's getting hard to tell with some things these days, haven't used the default UI for more than 2 minutes since EU beta).
Is is potentially possible to make the background that appears behind chat windows onmouseover go away? I set the transparency of the windows to 0, but whenever I mouse over, the background appears again.
Does it disappear again after you move the mouse away? Or do you mean that it resets the transparency?
Either way actually, I think perhaps you should look at a skinning / UI frames mod rather than Prat. (Although it's a fair enough request!)
I don't know if someone already pointed it out, but there's a cool mod out there called System Message Control Tool that allows one to select to which frames different kinds of yellow system messages must go, and that allows one to change the color for each kind, much like what one can do with actual chat channels.
So, it would be very nice if these features were available as a Prat module. Not that both addons are incompatible, quite the contrary, they work well together. But having everything chat-related centralized, or at least Ace2'd, is always nice. :)
I will try and add this in the near future. I'm a huge fan of that addon as well, and was very sad when it broke. (I didn't know that there was a working version out actually, nice of Ryiort to resurrect it.)
Good luck! I've installed GuildAds again and I'll have a look at it now.
Well, I've tried everything I can think of, and I just can't get chat links to break. Could you please send me the list of mods, just in case? Also, have you tried deleting your SavedVariables files for both Prat and GuildAds? If you're worried about losing data, make a copy of the files before deleting them, and just make sure WoW isn't running when you restore.
I really like your mod, but there's one problem I can hardly live with - I don't know if this has already been reported?
My guild and our raid partners use GuildAds (http://ui.worldofwar.net/ui.php?id=1120) so we can have a "combined guild channel", which normally works fine.
Since I am using Prat though, links of items in that channel are completely broken, they look a little like this:
pcffffffffpHitem:22829:0:0:0:0:0:0:1762998559p[Super Healing Potion]phpr
and is of course unusable. Disabling Prat makes those item links work again.
Is there any workaround available?
Guild Ads appears to be something quite similar to Cirk's Chatmanager
is the author still maintaining it?
Sorry for not answering for some time now, I've been quite busy lately...
I've read the description of Cirk's Chatmanager and it seems to be quite similar... GuildAds offers a password protected channel with infos about everyones twinks, professions, sells/needs etc.
But one of prat's chat modifying modules seems to destroy the item links... (I remember a version a few weeks ago where you were able to disable these modules which made the links clickable again.
Oh, and about the authors activity: I think I somewhere read about him being busy and all that and doesn't have much time to invest in bugfixing :(
Is there anything you could do?
I actually installed GuildAds to try and see if I could figure out the problem, and experienced what you described for a while. Then after a day or so when I logged in next, the problem seemed to have disappeared and for the life of me I can't get recreate it - I assumed that sylvanaar had fixed the problem somehow.
I'll have another look at it, but if could you give me a bit of information it might help. Just to check, do you have the latest versions of GuildAds and Prat installed? And is Prat's ChatLinks module enabled? Have you tried it disabled, or if you have it disabled have you tried it enabled? Finally, could you possibly list the other mods you have installed?
ah ok I'm using r26930 from the downloader zips page from the website.. I don't have the svn downloader or such installed anymore, it seems to use a lot of resources... guess I have to install it again to get this one.
Just FYI, but the zip files are should only be collections of files from the archives, you shouldn't need to install a downloader to get what you need. Have you tried again since you posted?
Hi... on recent versions of Prat, the WHO function simply does not work. I've tried everything... it still shows log-ins and log-outs from channels I've joined. I've had to go back to much earlier versions to get this to function. Is there any time table for this to be fixed?
(I have convinced probably 30 people from my guild to start using Prat, and *everyone* complains of the same issue.)
The old who module. which no longer has a maintainer, has been taken out of the .toc file and should not cause any issues. If you were looking for someone to fix it, unfortunately noone has decided to continue development right now. Sorry.
*sigh* ... Ok, lets turn off and on again to find out, which addons don't like each other
Edit: Ok, I have my Plugin back. I didn't change anything. Maybe I'm just blind and it was there all the time.
Actually, that's happened to me a few times as well. And sometimes if there are too many FuBar modules enabled to fit on the screen, some will end up on the minimap (and I won't notice, and when I've cleaned up the bar a bit will start wondering where the hell is ExampleFu, godammit). But hey. It's not like we're paying anything for all this software we're using, and even though it's free it's still some of the better stuff out there! :)
