rChat  Updated Today!
Version: 1.5.2
by: Shadowfen [More]
Depends on the following (separately installed) libraries:
  • LibSFUtils,
  • LibAddonMenu,
  • LibMediaProvider-1.0,
  • LibDebugLogger, and
  • LibChatMessage (New)


rChat allows you to customize the way that messages are displayed in the chat window.
It also allows you to define and post automated messages in chat, and to copy messages from chat to the clipboard with the right-click menu. (Note: When copying a single message, it will copy the message into the outgoing message text box for chat where you can then Ctrl-X to copy it to clipboard.)

Features
Chat message enhancements
  • Redundant information like "says", "yells" (zone tags), et cetera are optionally removed,
  • Character Name Rewrite - Choose to see the From names as account names, character names, or both. Customizable by guild.
  • Remove Brackets on Player Names,
  • Timestamps - Show time stamps for messages. Choose 12 hour or 24 hour format.
  • Whisper Notification - Play a sound or display visual notification when you receive a whisper.
  • Timestamps, From Info, and Messages can be colorized
  • Rename your Guilds Channels - Guild Tag or Officer one, each channel can be renamed
  • Group Leaders can have a separate color,
  • Strip Colors from messages to avoid Rainbow Messages,
  • Search for text in chat messages and highlight it with a different color or play a sound when it is found.

Chat Window enhancements
  • Prevent chat text from fading (My favorite!),
  • Chat history - No more chat clearing when you reloadUI. Also include a restore history when you logout, get kicked or disconnect.
  • Copy Text - You want to copy your chat ? Right click, and Ctrl+C
  • Set Text Fonts - 15 more fonts if you don't like the default one. You can also add fonts.
  • Chat window background - Can be darker or transparent
  • Resizing Chatbox
  • Clear current tab,
  • System Messages (and coincidentally, most addon messages) in the tab you have chosen,
  • Set default channel & tab at login,
  • Change Tab color,

Other Features
  • Anti-Spam - Optionally filter out LFG/LFM messages, WTB/WTS/WTT messages, flooding, and guild recruiting messages. (The anti-filtering necessarily works best with English language when abbreviated indicators are missing.)
  • Automated messages system - store messages (like teamspeak or discord info) to play into chat.
  • Automatic Group Switching - When you join a group, automatically enter the group channel.
  • Keybinds to switch between tabs and toggle chat window,
  • Auto switch channel when using arrow keys,
  • Configurable switches for channels
  • Automatic rChat configuration between chars,
  • French / German / Russian / Spanish Translations.

Key Bindings Available
  • Switch to next tab
  • Toggle Chat Window
  • Whisper at Target
  • Select Chat Tab 1-12 as current
  • Automated messages

Slash Commands
  • /rchat - Open the rChat Settings window
  • /rchat.msg - Open the rChat Automated Messages window

Based on: DesertDwellers, Ayantir, Puddys' pChat
1.5.2 (17)
  • Fixed error observed when changing guild officer colors (reported by Greevir).
  • Fixed missing names when chat is restored after a reload (reported by SimplyArmin).
  • The missing system messages on startup appears to be fixed by the latest version of LibChatMessage. If you are getting no system messages at all, check to make sure your tab options allows system messages on the tab; and if you are a new user of LibDebugLogger, that addon can steal system messages from chat to only be displayed in the DebugLogViewer.

1.5.1 (16)
  • Fix error with setting guild color not doing anything (reported by Kazzy-Poo).

1.5 (15)
Breaking Change
  • Now requires the library LibChatMessage in addition to the libraries LibSFUtils, LibAddonMenu, LibMediaProvider-1.0, and LibMainMenu to be installed separately.
  • The library libChat2 is no longer required.

1.4.4 (14)
  • Set AddonVersion in manifest file.
  • Clean up link handler code.
  • Split out color conversion code into a utils file.

1.4.3
  • Added in library version checking where possible to indicate when out-dated versions of the libraries we depend on are detected. Error messages for out-dated libraries are written to LibDebugLogger (required dependency) and can be viewed with the DebugLogViewer addon (recommended addon).
  • Rewrote the color stripping and correction for messages to fix the problem in ReformateSysMessages() and the "talk like a pirate Arr" problem reported by Akopian Atrebates. (This change also requires the newest version (22) of LibSFUtil!)

1.4.2
  • Fixed /rchat.msg to work properly again. I hate when I back out one change too many!
  • Moved the spam config settings to a different place in the saved variables. Users should not notice any difference though. If you have changed any of AntiSpam settings they will still be remembered.

1.4.1
  • Fixed chat restore on /reloadui, etc.

1.4
  • Fixed nil function in ZOS_Rewrite.lua error. (Reported by Kenza)
  • Removed dependency on LibMainMenu library (and the code that used it). The main menu entry for pChat/rChat has never appeared in my memory of using pChat, and my testing of addons using LibMainMenu verses LibMainMenu-2.0 seems to indicate that they have issues with the latest version of the game and potentially with each other. Since having a main menu entry is not that big of a "feature", it is best to remove this potential source of problems until it can be reevaluated.

1.3.1
  • Fix "rChat.lua:3271: function expected instead of nil" error messages. (reported by SimplyArmin)

1.3
Breaking Change
  • Now requires the library LibDebugLogger in addition to the libraries LibSFUtils, LibAddonMenu, LibMediaProvider-1.0, LibMainMenu, and libChat2 (note the lower case 'l') to be installed separately.
Other Changes:
  • Fixed UI error "rChat.lua:1522: function expected instead of nil" reported by Teva.
  • Provided translations for the new string "Enable sound for whispers" in supported languages. (Thank you Google Translate.)
  • Split the Zenimax code that was copied from the game (and sometimes modified) out into its own file to make it easier to keep track of and to update when we get new game patches/releases.

1.2.1
  • Fixed a settings error which disabled whisper sound notifications.
  • Fixed a nil error reported by Akopian Atrebates.

1.2
  • Revised choices for sound notifications for both mentions and whispers so that you have more than four sounds to choose from. (Note that some of the Zenimax sounds are so subtle that they are easily overlooked, and there are two separate "No_sound" settings though I forget what their names are.) As a note, you can put your mouse cursor on the sound slider in settings and then you can
    use the mouse wheel to advance up or down the slider as you like.
  • Worked on a fix for a nil error in Restore Chat that ZoLatKam reported.

1.1.1
  • Fixed sound notifications failure to work with mentions (reported by SneakyWitchTheif)
  • Fixed sound choice definitions for German translation.
  • Changed color of Mention Notification header to match the colors of the other sections under Messages Settings.

1.1
  • Added a way to look for a "mention" in chat and colorize it and/or play a sound. It is a preliminary version that can only look for a single piece of text (that is at least 4 characters long and does not contain any of the following characters: "%*-.+()[]^$?"). Also the string is case sensitive so "hello" will not match "Hello".

1.0.2
  • Fixed attributions for the pChat addon that rChat was forked from. My apologies to Ayantir and Puddy for not mentioning you along with DesertDweller.

1.0.1
  • Fix misspelled function name (error at 5065).

1.0
Breaking Changes
  • Now requires the libraries LibSFUtils, LibAddonMenu, LibMediaProvider-1.0, LibMainMenu, and libChat2 (note the lower case 'l') to be installed separately.

Enhancements
  • Reimplemented the old spanish language strings. Added missing spanish translations using Google Translate.
  • Removed LibCustomTitles
  • Regroup option settings to make them (hopefully) easier to find.
  • Can filter out guild recruiting messages which include a guild link. Does not attempt to detect text-only guild recruiting.
  • Added more detection to the "looking for group/member" and "want to sell/buy/trade" messages in order to filter out more of them.

Bug Fixes
  • Updated chat code and data that had been copied out of ESO into the addon to comply with the current version of ESO.
  • Removed embedded libraries. The inclusion of out-of-date libraries was causing random bugs in game that were not easily traceable back to the old libraries installed by pChat.
  • Split out the spam filtering to its own file.
  • Use LibSFUtils functions to handle localization strings.
  • Renamed addon to avoid conflicting with pChat during development (so I can still use pChat when I play in the beginning stages).
  • Forked rChat code from version 9.3.11.25 of pChat by DesertDwellers which has not been maintained in a while.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For changes prior to this, you should look at the pChat addon (version 9.3.11.25) by DesertDwellers, Ayantir, Puddy that this was based off of.

I'm not sure how the chat changes effected the old CHAT_SYSTEM messages, it's possible LUIE Messages only display if "System" chat is enabled in your chat window and that might be the issue (assuming rChat also allows you to toggle system chat on/off for windows like pChat did)

I need to play around with swapping to rChat at some point here soon so if I have any issues or notice anything wrong on my end I'll drop back by.

I'll take a look...

Update:
I do get the loot messages from Lui Ex with rChat, but I don't run InventoryManager. Still looking though. Everything is still unstable with so many changes...

Yes, ZOS rewrote the chat system and broke their own chat event handlers. Then I found this morning that the libChat2 library that rChat depends on was not updated for the new release; the author choosing instead to note that it is broken and will soon be deleted.

So, there will be a bit of a pause for rChat while I fix/redesign things...

New: Thanks to Sirinsdiator's work-around for the chat system in LibChatMessage, I've got a release of rChat for Harrowstorm that seems to be working for the most part. (I've spent all of 20 minutes testing it, so there may still be problems - please let me know if you find any.)

rChat now requires LibChatMessage instead of LibChat2.

Now I understand. Thanks!
I take a look at it.

Sorry, but I don't see what the problem is from the image that you provided. Can you explain it again to help me understand?
I see what he means! Look at the text entry box at the bottom~ It's half-covered in a darker black. Does rChat adjust the transparency by adding a new layer of black on top of the default chat box? Seems like it would be a matter of slightly adjusting where the new black layer is positioned/sized. Currently it looks like it ends at the bottom about halfway through the text entry box, and halfway through the scrollbar on the right side of the chat, making both the entry box and scroll bar have slightly different shades of black on them.

If possible, could that layer be moved/resized up/down/over a bit so it covers either none or all of the entry box and scroll bar? (I don't know anything about lua, so I hope whatever I'm saying make sense from a lua side of things... haha)

Keep up the great work!
But that's the text field that you type your message into?
