pChat was not created to work properly with the gamepad input mode! It may work if you play in gamepad input mode but using the keyboard chat mode (ingame settings), but please do not report any bugs if you use the gamepad input mode! Switch to keyboard input mode instead if you want to use pChat.

Addons description


Features
  • Character/Account names : Because in your guild chat you won't see @JohnTheRipper but Bugnark gro-Moshul, pChat replace account names with Character Names. Customizable by guild, groupe, normal chat. [email protected] and @AccountName/Playername available too.

  • Copy Text : You want to copy your chat ? Right click, and Ctrl+C

  • Anti-Spam : Bored of LFG, WTB and other flooding players ? AntiSpam without any configuration

  • Resizing Chatbox : Got a Full HD screen or more ? So let's resize your chatbox up to fullscreen

  • Timestamps : For the ones who like precision, now all messages got their timestamps. Hightly customizable to show your desired format. 11:43 PM or 23:43:12, choose the one you like.

  • 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

  • Rename your Guilds Chans : Guild Tag or Officer one, each channel can be renamed

  • French / German translations : Russian & Spanish Translations too

  • Exit /g1, /say, /o1 : Click on chat, timestamp, channel name, and pChat will set your channel to the one you clicked on

  • Chat history : No more chat wiped when you'll reloadUI. Also include a restore history when you logout, get kicked or disconnect.

  • 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.
    Show the currently typed character count at the chat window header bar.
    Show the last time you have posted something to the zone chat at the chat window header bar.
    Addon and features provided by: Coorbin

Missing a feature? Have a look at the "Other chat addons" section below






Options menu to setup the addon : In Settings > Addon Settings > pChat ("Extensions" in French and "Erweiterungen" in German)



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.


If your chat addon needs to be compatible with pChat
The CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter only allows 1 function for each EVENT_CHAT_* callback function!
If you assign it new you'll overwrite exisitng ones!
So ALWAYS please check if any other chat addon is enabled, add these other known chat addons to your manifest txt ## OptionalDependsOn: list so the other addons load before your addon, and afterwards "post hook", or manually post hook, the other message formatter callback function -> See example for pChat below.
ATENTION: pChat uses the EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED callback to register the message formatters! If you want to post hook it you MUST do that after your own EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED callback! Using EVENT_ADD_ON_LOADED will make pChat overwrite your callback function again (and it's no good to use EVENT_ADD_ON_LOADED here as the chat is ready first after first called EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED)!

Example code for your EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED callback function, for the chat message formatter of EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL
Lua Code:
  1. local function myChatHandlersMessageChannelReceiver(channelID, from, text, isCustomerService, fromDisplayName)
  2.         --your chat EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL callback function
  3.     end
  4.     --For the example OR - Wrapper function for the existing EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL callbackFunction    
  5.     local function myOnChatMessageChannelWrapper(messageText)
  6.        local messageTextNew = messageText
  7.        --Do whatever you need with the messageText passed in from original function
  8.        return messageTextNew
  9.     end
  10.  
  11.  
  12.     if pChat == nil then
  13.         --pChat is not loaded: Add your own handler to the CHAT_ROUTER
  14.         --I'd always check if any other chat addon is active though and maybe thus always add the code below, even if pChat is not loaded
  15.         --as it will keep exisitng callback functions of other addons or event add to the original vanilla chat formatter callback function
  16.         CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter(EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL, myChatHandlersMessageChannelReceiver)
  17.     else
  18.         --pChat is loaded
  19.         --!!!ATTENTION!!!
  20.         --Do the following at EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED after pChat has set CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter(EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL, pChatChatHandlersMessageChannelReceiver)
  21.         --Get all chat formatters. Table formatters will contain the different chat event entries, like EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL now
  22.         local formatters = CHAT_ROUTER:GetRegisteredMessageFormatters()
  23.         --Get the chat callback function for EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL of pChat
  24.         local originalpChatFormatter = formatters[EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL]
  25.         if originalpChatFormatter then
  26.  
  27.            --Either:
  28.             --Post Hook pChat's EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL callbackFunction by re-applying the own handler function
  29.             --which first calls pChat's function, and then your own code
  30.             CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter(EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL, function(...)
  31.                 local messageTextOfpChatHandler = originalpChatFormatter(...)
  32.                 --Do something with messageTextOfpChatHandler if you need to
  33.                 return myChatHandlersMessageChannelReceiver(...)
  34.             end)
  35.  
  36.           --Or:
  37.           --As the callback function of EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL returns  Instead of a manual posthook your could also define your own "wrapper" function around the original function
  38.           CHAT_ROUTER:RegisterMessageFormatter(EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL , function(...)
  39.                     return myOnChatMessageChannelWrapper(originalpChatFormatter (...))
  40.                 end)          
  41.  
  42.         end
  43.     end

-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.

## v10.0.1.5 ##
-Changed backup reminder dialog to show gamepad dialog as well

## v10.0.1.4 ##
-Updated API to Blackwood
-Fixed settings menu to show the new CTRL+backspace settings proper: Chat options -> Chat Window -> Chat edit box
-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)


## v10.0.1.2 ##
-Fixed copy dialog
-Changed copy dialog to disable filter checkboxes and labels for non filtered chat channels

## v10.0.1.1 ##
-Updated Russian translations -> Thanks to ivann339!
-Fixed chat copy dialog messing up the HUD/HUD_UI scenes
-Added keybind: "Copy whole chat (dialog)"
-Updated API version
-Updated needed library LibMainMenu to version 9

## v10.0.1.0 ##
Fixed
Copy dialog (still scene bug active)

Changed
-API version to Markarth
-Dependency versions needed: LibMainMenu v9, LibCustomMenu v694

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 slash 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.

Thanks Baetram!

The left border of window is shifted to the right and the vertical extant is extended up.

As I said, I think this had to do with BeamMeUp, which added an icon to the chat bar. Have disabled that feature.

I disabled the sync feature. That fixed the problem.

Will try the reset you suggested. Should I turn on sync first before the steps you suggested?

I never had that happen so I'm not sure why's exactly is wrong for you? Is it moved up or down, left or right?
Do you use why other addons with chat related stuff on the toons where the chat window is miss-placed?

I'm not sure how to reset this, maybe disable the sync feature and try if this fixes it.

Lately the chat window size and position has been messed up.

After fixing it, it comes back badly when logging off and back on.

Have had to disable the sync setting.

Wondering how I clear the saved setting size and position setting that keep messing up.

Please let me know.

BTW, this problem started about the time that BeamMeUp was updated to add a an icon to the chat window header. I have since turned off that setting in BeanMeUp, yet the problem persisted until I turned of the sync setting in pChat.

Could you please elaborate what you want pChat to do with nicknames, and how it should affect what at the chat?

Adding some kind of additional names (nicknames or similar) to each chat row is nothing I'd like to add, if this is what you are asking for.
You can set to see the characterName, @accountName, @accountName/characterName or character/@accountName for each different chat channel, that should be enough to see who writes.

1. Logout
2. Delete folder live/AddOns/pchat completely
3. Download pChat's correct version, either manually here from the addon's download link.
-> Manual addon install description can be found at the "help" section of this website esoui.com
Or search it at Minion and make sure the show pChat version you select there is no patch and no updated/changed version, but the original pChat, showing you the same name as here at the addon description and verison (see changelog for the version).
4. Login and check the settings if all is English again now
5. Disbale all other chat related addons, or even all other addons, if you want to chck if pChat works fine or not. i'm not going to support error messages or problems that might occur becasue of other addons you use in combination, as my sticky comment here (1st post at the addon comments) describes! Please do test this with other addons disabled, before reporting errors, and make sure you know which of your other addons and which of their settings lead to errors or problems. This is not my duty.

In general: Logout and do a backup of your live/SavedVariables folder every here and there (onec a week) so you can go back to these backuped files if some addon causes issues.
pChat reminds you doing this after major patches too!

Hope that helps.

Help please. I like this addon, I really don't want to have to remove it.

Re: pChat error just after UI appears

Hi, we're other addons enabled as this happened?
If so, were there aby other chat related ones?

Is its not reproducible its hard to find And I won't invest much time to track it is one cannot reproduce it. If you find out how to repro it please tell me and also try with all other addons disabled. I guess there is some incompatibility with another addon here.

Did you change between keyboard and gamepad mode or enabled the accessibility mode by chance before the error occurred?

I noticed after installing pchat so I assumed it was that, and it disappeared after I disabled pchat and reappeared after reenabling pchat. Assuming some other addon is conflicting with it so I'll go through them and see if I can sort it out and update here late if you would like. And no it wasn't old chat, it was posting to chat while in a Trial.

Thanks!

This does not happen for me so far. Are you sure the chat shown is no history (old) entry?
Did you test this with only pChat enabled, no other addon enabled? If not please do so as asked for at the sticky comment above and see if any other addon, in combination with pChat, results in this error.

Edit:
I've tried this NPC channel turn OFF and spawned a companion: Normally you would read e.g. Bastion's "I'm here again where do we go" then. It was not showing in chat but the sound where he talks was played.
Tested this with NPC chat channel enabled at the chat tab: It shows then.

16:40: Bastian talks and chat of NSC shows.
Turned NPC chat channel of at 16:41
Despawned and respawned Bastian at 16:42, he talks but no chat text is shown.
Changed the chat tab channel NPC to ON again at 16:43.
Despawned and respawned Bastian at 16:44: He talks and chat shows the message again.

Tried the same with some NPCs talking in a city: It does not show in chat for me, all filtered if the chat tab filter is set to NPC = OFF

So whatever does not work for you there, must be another addon interfering. Please try with only pChat enabled as asked for above. If it works then please find out which of your other chat related addons is causing thins.

I know ppl talking German, playing in EN or DE, and even Chinese or other native speaker use to play in EN or even French client, depends on what type of player they are (casual, role player or raid end game content [often played in EN for an easier communication about the mechanics etc.]). And their forum posts are all english, allthough their client language ingame might be Spanish, French, Chinese, German or English (or other custom languages like PT, PL, IT, ...).
I got experience with addons and what might happen or not since 2014 so if I ask for those details I got my reasons Especially if I ask for disabling ALL other addons and testing if the errors are the same or not.

I will also run the addon by itself when I log in again and see what it does.

Edit: turning off the addons still makes the [Zone] appear as zone after the name.
Could you please show me a screenshot with an example, what exactly it looks like in a particular zone,
and also please tell me what exactly the zone chat channel drop down box is setup for you at pChat's settings, as this chat output (shown at the screenshot) happens for you.

Thank you

Which language do you play in and does this happen with ONLY pChat enabled too (why do I have to ask that again and again :-( pleaseprovide this information unasked, as asked for in the sticky post above! Thank you ).
Did you change the settings for the zone chat channel already, at the drop down box for zone chat name formatting?
I have changed the settings, and even deleted the saved variables to see if it fixes it.

It's presumed that I play the game in English since I am typing this post in English - or at least I would have assumed that (yes I know, assuming makes and ass out of u and me). But an understandable question I suppose.

This only happens with zone chat, guild chat does the channel first. I don't remember if party does this too, I'll have to check later on.

I will also run the addon by itself when I log in again and see what it does.

Edit: turning off the addons still makes the [Zone] appear as zone after the name.
