pChat

Please logout and backup your SavedVariables regularly!
pChat will update and support server dependent settings + histories!

The SavedVariables backup reminder will remind you once a week and after APIversion changes, and can be disabled in the Backup settings submenu.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Version 10.0.2.0 - 2021-06-19
-Changed the SavedVariables to Server dependent ones: Means NA and EU server will save different settings and histories now.
Your current "non-server dependent" settings will be automatically copied to the server you login (NA, EU, PTS).
On-screen and chat messages, as well as LibDebugLogger messages (in the DebugLogViewer UI if you use this) will show you what was migrated and as it finished (2 automatic reloadUIs should happen during the migration process).

Attention: You are able to delete the non-server dependent (old) SavedVariables, to clean up the SV file size and decrease the loading times, by using the chat slag command /pchatdeleteoldsv
BUT: Do NOT use this command before having logged in to ALL of the servers you play on! These non-server dependent settings are used as the copy base for the different servers. Copying SV from e.g. server NA to EU is not possible! So FIRST login to each server you play on, enable pChat and the dependencies, watch the screen for the migration messages and the reloaduis until it says finished.
After having migrated all servers you can use the slash command to delete the old SV file contents.

  • No more whisper missed : A whisper : A sound. Visual
    notification if you want it too.

  • [21:08] [pChat] [Ayantir]: Because chat should be easy to read : Timestamps, From Info and messages can be colorized as you like

  • New Fonts embedded : 15 new fonts if you don't like the default one. And you can add the one you want too.

  • Darker chat window : If your eyes need a little help to improve your chat reading, and if you don't like background it can also be always transparent.
  • Define your own messages via /msg slash command : Define messages (long text) which you are able to quick post using a !<tag>, e.g. !ts + return key in the chat editbox: Will post the TeamSpeak server host/IP and login data information to chat. Often used with !ga to post guild advertisement texts.
  • Integrated addon "Chat Mentions" and other features : Enable sounds and visual mentioning of your character/account.

Known Issues :
-Do not use a keybind that uses Alt. For example, Alt+Shift+x, Alt+Ctrl+x, all keybinds without Alt are good.
-If you get an error message first read and apply the information from above, written below the headline
After updating pChat please be sure to check the subfolder "lib" is not there anymore. If it is still there: Delete it!


Any problems : Please let me know with a comment or a PM.
Please read the sticky comment (first comment) before posting a bug!


Important information:
Chat addons cannot work properly if the CrownStore is open! This is due to ZOs restrictions to protect the crown store against changes via addons and affects the chat as well.


Other chat addons
FCOChatTabBrain: Auto switch multiple chat tabs upon incoming messges, remember last chat channel at each tab, automatically change chat channels to last incoming one upon pressing <chat start> (RETURN) key, redirect whisper messages, play sound notifications on messages (keywords, friends, group, leaders, guilds), auto switch to group, and many more features.

-Fixed ChatMentions global leaking variable "news"
-Moved ChatMentions code to subtable pChat.ChatMentions

## v10.0.2.0 ## 2021-06-19
-Changed the SavedVariables to Server dependent ones: Means NA and EU server will save different settings and histories now.
Your current "non-server dependent" settings will be automatically copied to the server you login (NA, EU, PTS).
On-screen and chat messages, as well as LibDebugLogger messages (in the DebugLogViewer UI if you use this) will show you what was migrated and as it finished (2 automatic reloadUIs should happen during the migration process).

Attention: You are able to delete the non-server dependent (old) SavedVariables, to clean up the SV file s ize and increase the loading times, by using the chat slag command /pchatdeleteoldsv
BUT: Do NOT use this command before having logged in to ALL of the servers you play on! These non-server dependent settings are used as the copy base for the different servers. Copying SV from e.g. server NA to EU is not possible! So FIRST login to each server you play on, enable pChat and the dependencies, watch the screen for the migration messages and the reloaduis until it says finished.
After having migrated all servers you can use the slash command to delete the old SV file contents.

-Updated dependency versions
-Added a "Backup your SavedVariables" reminder. It will be shown once weekly or if the game's APIversion changes.
Please backup your SV at least once weekly as the pChat SV structures will change in the future and if migration will fail you will need a file to go back to.

You are able to disable the SV backup reminder in the settings at the Backup submenu.

## v10.0.1.3 ##
-Removed LibMainMenu
->You will need to install LibMainMenu-2.0 now!
-Added new setting to use CTRL+backspace to delete a whole word in the chat edit box (Thanks to Dolgubon)

Added
-Chat mentions by Coorbin, thanks for including this into pChat!


## v10.0.0.5 ##
Removed duplicate constants for the automated messages, hidden in pChat.lua file

## v10.0.0.4 ##
Fixed translations of the automated messages dialog, which you are bale to spawn via the /msg chat slash command

## v10.0.0.3 ##
After some users were not able to find the name format dropdown boxes for guilds and groups in the chat channel submenus, and thought the name format setting in the chat message submenu would apply to all chat messages:
Changed the settings so that the "name format" dropdown boxes for guild and group are also shown (duplicate) in the "message options"->"names in messages" submenu.

Hopefully the "bug reports" stop now as you will find them all at one spot :-)

## v10.0.0.2 ##
Fixed:
-Automated messages keybind and chat comamnd /msg will show the UI again

## v10.0.0.1 ##
Fixed:
-Timestamps and other formatting re-added for system mesages
-Timestamps and other formatting re-added for system mesages send by LibChatMessage (thanks sirinsidiator)
Attention: If you got the addon "DebugLogViewer" enabled the debug messages of addons will be ONLY shown in the DebugLogViewer UI/Quicklog UI, and NOT in the normal chat anymore! This is normal and an intended behaviour.
-Chat tab switch to default chat tab, after login

Added:
-Settings to enable/disable the chat format handlers (colors, timestamps, names, etc.).
You can find these settings as new submenu inside the "Message settings" submenu.
The following chat handlers can be enable/disabled:
  • System messages
  • Group left
  • Group type change
  • Friends list online status
  • Ignore list added
  • Ignore list removed
Standard setting value is: Enabled
You can use them to disable the chat formatters for e.g. online status and thus fix problems with other addons like "No Thank You".
You MUST reload the UI to change these settings so be sure to do so after changing the checkboxe values.

Please backup your SavedVariables regularly. Logout of the game before doing this! pChat will update and support server dependent settings + histories!
The SavedVariables backup reminder will remind you once a week and after APIversion changes, and can be disabled in the Backup settings submenu.


!READ THIS FIRST PLEASE, BEFORE SENDING NEW BUGs!
Ignoring this post and links in this post here will result in non-answered comments or even deleted comments!

HowTo report bugs/error messages properly
[Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors]

Be sure to read the "known bugs" and "incompatibility" list inside this sticky comment here first (further down!).
This might already fix your problems.

After this click the link "Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors" below and follow the information how to correctly report a bug here.

If you send in a comment about an error message or found bug, please always include the following information:
Read this first: [Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors]
Especially the sections "lua error messages" and "How to report a lua error message/a bug to the developers"
Main points to check and report here:
  • Did you update ALL the needed dependencies and other addons?
  • Did you test with ONLY the pChat addon & needed dependencies enabled, and is it working then (most probably another addon interfers then)?
  • What other addons did you use as the error happened and please find out which of them is causing the error by disableing them oner after another (if only pChat enabled works fine)?
  • More points and hints can be found at the link "[Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors]"


Known incompatiblity with other addons
Library "libChat2" was removed from this addon.
-> Please delete it, and all other "libChat" occurences (watch the lower l as first character! Do not delete LibChat* libraries like LibChatMessage!). Also LibGardfield counts as libChat and needs to be deinstalled!
-> from your AddOns and subfolders, as they are non-functional anymore since 2019 and cause errors and problems with many other chat related addons.



Known bugs:
  1. My chat colors, name and other formatting is not working.
    Logout!
    Remove old libraries from your other AddOns' folders and subfolderss where you are sure the libs are outdated or broken (e.g. LibMainMenu, libChat, libChat2, libChat3 -> libChat is broken so do not use or install it any longer!).
    Update all your libraries/dependencies (especially chat related ones like LibChatMessage).
    Read more about libraries/dependencies and installing/updating them here:
    https://www.esoui.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9149
    https://wiki.esoui.com/Libraries
  2. Whisper messages sometimes do not show the @accountName even though the settings are set to @accountName/charName or charName/@accountName.
    I cannot find a way to reproduce this constantly. Seems as if the ESO source code is not providing the @accountName constantly to the event as the whisperMessage was received. As it's only a visual bug I may work on this in the future, if I find a way to reproduce it 100%



Beta version
https://github.com/Baertram/pChat/ar...at_guildId.zip
Attention: After opening the ZIP archive be sure to ONLY extract the subfolder "pChat" in the the folder "pChat-pChat_guildId". Do not extract the whole folders into your /live/AddOns directory!
Your live/AddOns dir must look like this afterwards:
Code:
/Elder Scrolls Online/live/AddOns/pChat/pChat.txt

Other chat addons
FCOChatTabBrain: Auto switch multiple chat tabs upon incoming messges, remember last chat channel at each tab, automatically change chat channels to last incoming one upon pressing <chat start> (RETURN) key, redirect whisper messages, play sound notifications on messages (keywords, friends, group, leaders, guilds), auto switch to group, and many more features.


Cleaning non-server dependent SavedVariables
Attention: You are able to delete the non-server dependent (old) SavedVariables, to clean up the SV file size and decrease the loading times, by using the chat slag command /pchatdeleteoldsv
BUT: Do NOT use this command before having logged in to ALL of the servers you play on! These non-server dependent settings are used as the copy base for the different servers. Copying SV from e.g. server NA to EU is not possible! So FIRST login to each server you play on, enable pChat and the dependencies, watch the screen for the migration messages and the reloaduis until it says finished.
After having migrated all servers you can use the slash command to delete the old SV file contents.

Re: Delete command

No sorry, it will delete itssself after the time you have set in the settings menu for "restore hours" (1 - 24).
I will not add more options here as the history already is troubling, and if you try to cut out single messages it will most likely break or corrupt your SavedVars.
Maybe one could add a "Delete all history" button but this will clear all history stored of the last 1-24 hours. And I do not see any reason for that so far as it will clean itsself already, and everything else could be just differed by chat tabs, chat tab settings and "scrolled away"

Re: feature request

Not in the near future unfortunately. But did you consider using multiple chat tabs, and the addon FCOChatTabBrain which will auto switch the chat tabs at incoming messages and play sounds for you, enables auto chat channel selection so your next RETURN key press answers to the last incoming chat channel.

That is, if I don't scroll up or down, or type in chat, etc, for 15 seconds, then the window would scroll to the bottom (to the last chat).
I don't know how many times I have missed messages, because I thought I was seeing current chat, only to discover that I was looking at an old "snapshot" of chats.
Thanks for considering this.

Take your time to recover, all the best!

When i choose in the list the character name for sync it then shows like if highlighted, but if i want to check that for all my characters, the name is still selected but same color as all the other names in the list. (trying to explain, not sur all the words are good choice)
I think I know what you mean. You only select 1 char to "sync from" and do not need to re select any for the other chars as it will be saved account wide. The selected entry should only be highlighted as you move the mouse over the name in the expanded dropdown box. Selecting it should not highlight it anymore. But it would not change anything as it's only a visual thing. As you select the character to sync to each other character, at logon, will read the settings of chat from that character. BUT: You need to have logged in at least once with the other character which you have set as "sync to character" AFTER changing this setting! Else pChat cannot read any chat info from that character as it is not able to read base game settings and positions IF NOT LOGGED IN with that char to read from (no addon can do this!).

I always login with the "sync to" char and after having specified all settings like I want it to be I go to pChat caht sync settings and set the currently logegd in chat as the sync to char. This should save all needed data properly then.

Since your problem here is unique, unfortunately you will have no other option I think.
Dont worry i know. I am a long user since start. I do not count now the number of times i had to check my addons one by one. As i said i will do this when i will be back on game when i will be allowed to be on game due to health issues.

I dont use bandit, nor AUI advanced. I use LUI extended BUT the module chat is off on it. I use FCO changedstuff for the little options to chat. Of course i have other addons, but not manipulating the chat, though when i will be back on, if this happens again, i will then just use the addon and libs and see.

I'm using sync and for me character switch does not make my chat jump or be mal-positioned. So I'm not sure what causes this and users reported to me it inky happens with other UI related addons enabled (like Schrappe answered below too).

Hello, just a little info that i noticed too : it happens generally as Itsmitch said, when logging a different character. It seems that the sync to X character does not work sometimes. And the name most of the time is greyed out. So checked for each character that the sync was working fine. Took me 3 or 4 tries per character sometimes.

I also checked off for the reminder to save.

Sorry for not posting that problem, but i am away from ESO for health issues
