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.

## 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.

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

## v9.4.1.4 ##
-Removed MUST dependency LibChatMessage as ZOs fixed their message formatter handling stuff and the workaround provided by LibChatMessage seems to currently not be needed any longer.
You can keep it for newer updates though, it just is not currently needed anymore to enable pChat.
-Changed the event formatter functions to register normally again, instead of overwriting them

## v9.4.1.3 ##
-Added LibDebugLogger for debug output (optional dependency. If not installed debug messages will be shown in chat normally)
-Fixed chat_System.primaryContainer not present after event_player_activated sometimes
-Fixed disabled check on some settings
-Fixed some translations
-Changed guild Names to use the unique guildIds (automatic SavedVariables transfer so your settings should be the same as before)
-Changed character selection dropdownboxes in the settings to use the characterIds in the background to enable renaming of characters and keeping the settings properly (chat synchronisation)
-Added character class icon and color to the selection dropdown boxes in the settings, sorted by class
-Added 4th chat formatter selection for the chat prefix (normal/guild/group): @AccountName/characterName:
-Fixed self defined chat guild prefix shown instead fo the total length guild name
-Fixed self defined chat guild switches (like /itc for Imperial Trading Company)

## v9.4.1.2 ##
Fixed the chat tab selection problems caused by chat tab template renaming

## v9.4.1.1 ##
-Fixed errors related to LAM settings
-Replaced old function CHAT_SYSTEM:CreateChannelData() with a new created compatibility function ZO_ChatSystem_CreateChannelData() -> Hopefully fixed the guild chat slash shortcuts as well with this (no testing was possible)

## v9.4.1.0 ##
Fixed chat tab switch by keybind: If last chat tab was arrived and first was selected a lua error appeared

## v9.4.0.9 ##
-Removed included library: LibMediaProvider
-New dependency to fix ZOs chat formatter problem "temporarily": LibChatMessage in version 80 or higher!
-> Please install the libraries as standalone version (like an addon via Minion or manually into the c:/users/your windows username/documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/AddOns folder

-Updated API version to Harrowstorm
-Fixed changed chat system/proxy stuff
-Fixed some function replacements
-Added some checks
-Fixed chat history restore with nil value at 1 position

Important:
If you enable pChat currently all other chat addons, which have registered chat event handlers for formatting message texts, group/guild/friend add & remove will not apply their chat stuff properly.
This happens because one needs to overwrite the chat handlers to make it currently work, because ZOs code is not working anymore like before and they need to provide a fix!

## v9.4.0.8 ##
-Fixed: Error message for missing libraries was shown sometimes without a reason. Updted the message with more details as well.

## v9.4.0.7 ##
-Fixed: Missing libraries messages not shown before event_add_on_loaded anymore, and messages not shown if libraries are not missing.
-Changed: Messages about missing/wrong LibMainMenu library was enhanced with more details, so no one should confuse LibMainMenu (pChat) and LibMainMenu-2.0 (Other addons) anymore.

## v9.4.0.6 ##
-Fixed: Chat restore if restore after reloadui is enabled in the settings won't throw an error anymore if the restored chat message was empty (somehow)

## v9.4.0.5 ##
-Fixed: Removed debug message at whisper messages
-Changed: Error message about LibMainMenu shows information about the sticky comment within pChat comments on https://www.esoui.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=93#comments and tells the user to follow the steps there to fix their other, known incompatible addons.

## v9.4.0.4 ##
Another try to fix LibMainMenu outdated usages in OTHER addons, from within pChat...
Guys: If you get a lua error message like this
Code:
user:/AddOns/pChat/pChat.lua:1270: function expected instead of nil
THEN PLEASE: Read the pChat comments, first post at the top (sticky), section "Incompatibility" and check if one of these addons is active. Read the workaround/checkl these addons comments to fix this locally at your side as I cannot fix this from within pChat. Tell the authors to update their addons properly please.

Quick workaround info:
Delete the subfolder lib/LibMainMenu or libs/LibMainMenu in these addons and add a
## DependsOn: LibMainMenu
to these addon's txt file (e.g. PVPMeter.txt)

## v9.4.0.3 ##
Fixed:
-Chat fadeout works again (ZOs changed code, pChat was changed accordingly)
-Changed implemented chat restore fix by Maggi
-Added some more checks for LibMainMenu.
If you get an error message that LibMainMenu is not loaded or the /msg chat command is not working anymore, be sure to read the sticky post in the pChat comments here about known bugs and known incompatibilites with other addons:
HarvestMap
PVPMeter
SuperStar
-> Check the comments of these addons how to remove the embedded LibMainMenu in these addons and how to make them load your installed standalone LibMainMenu (by adding ##DependsOn: LibMainMenu to the other addon's txt file) properly.

Added:
-New setting "Add prefix to restored chat messages": Will add a [H] (for [history]) in front of restored chat messages. The color of the [H] will be the color of the standard ESO chat channels (ESO vanilla UI settings).
-New setting "Do not notify on restored whispers": If the whisper notification is enabled and this setting is enabled as well restored whisper messages won't show the highlighted whisper chat tab nor the whisper notification button anymore.

## v9.4.0.2 ##
Fixed:
-German/Englisch translations with more/changed details
-Chat resizing is possible again (Thanks to votan for the help!)
-lua error messages regarding LibMainMenu (version 1) fixed: Please update the library and install it with version >= 7
-Removed hard coded library call to LibMediProvider-1.0. The lib is still included into the "lib" subfolder but will be found and loaded by the game's vanilla addon manager via it's own LibMediaProvider.txt file now.

## v9.4.0.1 ##
Fixed:
-lua error message upon incoming messages with Timestamps disabled
-Whisper sounds played again on incoming whispers (if you set the new sounds slider to a value >1)

Changed:
-Whisper sounds: Removed dropdown box with non functional (except 1) sounds and added a slider with ALL sounds available ingame. The standard sound is NONE (slider value = 1) which means no sound will be played. Please move the slider to hear the sound played and see the name at the slider's label

## v9.4.0.0 ##
- Updated API
- Updated German translations
- Fixed chat messages showing only %s or %%s
- Added history bugfix of user "Maggi": If timestamps are disabled the chat history restore was somehow wrong sometimes. Hopefully this fixes the bug mentioned by other users as well
- Added security checks for needed libraries
- Some other bugfixes I had already implemented with versions before, linked in the comments of pChat

===========================================================================

## v9.3.11.25 ##
================
-- Updated LibCustomTitles
-- Updated Manifest to support variable AddOnVersion

This is an maintenance update, new version 9.4 is in development and will be released soon. Was not ready to release before Murkmire update.

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

## v9.3.10.24 ##
===============
-- Fixed issue Tells being stored as last chat channel for a tab.

If you have the issue, simply choose a different channel for it along with sending a message.

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

## v9.3.9.24 ##
===============
-- Fixed issue with manifest.

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

## v9.3.8.24 ##
===============
-- Fixed issue with AGS displaying messages of purchases.

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

## v9.3.7.24 ##
===============
-- Default tab in settings now shows the tab names as opposed to the tab numbers.
-- Default tab settings moved to Chat Tab Settings
-- Updated libCustomTitles to the most recent version to address issues with RUEso add on.
-- Remember to disable libCustomTitles follow the instructions http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1765-DisableCustomTitles.html

Known Issue: Default Channel for default tab is still not functioning, I released this update early to accomadate issues with RUEso addon.

Note About Default Tab: -- If tabs are renamed it may take a reloadui to get refresh the names, but as long as the tab number is still the same there will be no issue. That is if you have your "Guild 1" tab as the default, and rename it to "G1", as long as the tab is in the same place the function for Default Tab will not be affected.

RECOMMEND TO RESET DEFAULT TAB TO THE NAMED TAB.

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

## v9.3.6.24 ##
===============
-- Fix to 9.3.5.24, fixed default tab as it ceased to function. Programmer type :)
-- Added support for library libCustomTitles, to disable to to
http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1765-DisableCustomTitles.html

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

## v9.3.5.24 ##
===============
-- Fix suggested by SlippyCheeze to avoid infinite loads
-- Combined the old keybinds with the ones recently added, now all keybinds under heading pChat.
-- Added Chat Tab Settings to addon menu. For coming options.
-- Added option to remember the last chat channel used in a tab.
-- API bump for Wolfhunter, testing completed. Will contineu to test til release.

Originally I planned on a major update, with many things I am working on for pChat, however I decided to do incremental updates. More to come for chat tab features, and fixes.

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

## v9.3.4.23##
===============
-- A fix put into place for line 1407 reported as a bad argument by Itabit
-- Restructred Settings menu, using submenus instead of annoying long list.
-- Changed default window darkness to 6 instead of 1.

Notes: I have not been able to duplicate the bad argument error reported by Itabit, however, he found a solution was to start with a fresh saved vars. I did code a fix, however I cannot confirm it will work at this point. Please report any problems you may get with this release.

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

v9.3.2.23
=========
-- Fixed typos from Chat Tab lables for new bindings

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

v9.3.1.23
=========
This release was planned to have more changes, however I decided to push these out sooner to everyone.

-- Russian translation updated by alexesprit
-- Keybinds for up to 12 tabs, choose them in the Control options of the game menu. Choose keybinds for each tab, when pressed,
you will be in that tab.
-- Fixed default tab, it was being superseeded by Chat History, it is now setting default tab after history is loaded.
-- Changed transparency selection to chose between 0 to 11. Option "0" is not going to be the most transparent, but the default
ESO Background. "1" will be the most transparent, all the way up to 11 being the darkest. You may experience when using the
default option of 0 that it may appear too light or too dark, quit the game to desktop and go back in and it should be correct.

Next up, working on a rewrite of the settings which impact how the saved vars is saved, it will be highly likely that the Sync Chat option
may go away, opting for a selection of either character based settings, or account wide settings. Unless I discover another use of the chat
sync that will impact the add on negatively.

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

v9.3.0.23
=======
-- Updated Chat Transparency to have 10 levels of transparency. Always wanted more choices on this :)

v9.2.23
=======
-- Updated libaddonmenu library to r26
-- Keybinding to whisper target is functioning correctly

If this option is selected, pChat won't change channel when entering game, when leaving a party (if auto switch party is activated) and when reloadui/logoff. This option shoud be used for users of FCO ChatTabBrain who get an improved textEntry configuration.

- Fixed Guild Chat compatibility when restoring chat. GuildChat users should update their addon too.

=======
- Optimized RestoreHistory function. It won't dump anymore the text which will be dropped, also fixed a bug that caused sometimes the chat was also restored even if the timer was elapsed and few things on dumping back chat which could cause spam filtering and copying fail. Also, Restore History don't need anymore the ChatSync Feature being activated for LogOut, Kick & Quit.
Plus, the timer for chat restoration is now based on each message timestamp and not logout time (if you set the timer to 3h, delog/relog immediatly, the messages past 3h won't be restored). Please note that for a ReloadUI, this timer is still ignored.

Because of this small change, the chat reverted from previous versions of pChat won't get their colors but default channel ones. Plus all System Messages reverted from previous versions of pChat will be stripped.

- Fixed a bug which reverted (again) your guild colors to black after leaving a guild.
- Fixed a tiny bug on copy when length was > 1000 chars if last char was non-Ascii.

v2.4.2
=======
- Fix on ChatConfig Synchronisation when alting.

v2.4.1
=======
- Added an option to do not restore system messages when you restore your chat.
- When you select your sound in list, it will now be played.
- Switch to Next Tab was disabled, oops.
- Updated russian translation, many thanks to KiriX
- Improved options panel desactivation. If a control is disabled, it's because another control has a value which desactive this one. I cannot add for now reason of why control is disabled due to library restriction. I'll add intuitive tooltips when it'll be possible.

v2.4
=======
- Added History :
When you'll reloadUI Your TextEntry history (available with up/down arrow key) will re restored, your chat will be restored, your current channel will also be restored. This action is enabled per default and can be disabled.
If you active the Chat Sync feature (available in options - activated per default in last release), You could also activate this option if you LogOut get kicked on just leave game. For those 3 settings a shared timer in hours is added.
PS: If you crash (any reason), the last session won't be restored, but the precedent one, I can't do anything for it, just don't crash

- Added Switch to Next Tab feature - It will permit you to switch to the next tab. Default Keybind is Shift+Tab, if you hit Shift while stealth, you'll stand up, so you'll maybe need to rebind this action. You can change it in your UI settings keybinds

- Added Whisp Notification.
If you activate this option, when you'll receive a whisp, if your actual tab don't show IM's or you didn't scrolled at the bottom, a notification will pop at the top right corner of the Chat Window. If you click on sender name, the chat will scroll at the button or switch to the next tab with IM enabled and scroll at the bottom. If your chat was Minimized when you receive an IM, a "IM" button will appear in red in the mini chat bar. It will show you the sender name and it's IM.
Clicking on it will restore your chat and same as before. This feature is disabled per default.

Improved copy dialog, the pages 2+ didn't get focus when opening them
Fixed system messages which outputs now to all containers for users of ChatIt with this option activated.
Fixed the rare bug with leftGuild (I guess it's ok, I can't test it).
Fixed the default sound when receiving an IM, it was set to None, it's now "Notification"[/list]
v2.3b
=======
- Fixes rare bugs at startup and /say which was badly declared as defaultchannel.

v2.3a
=======
- Fixes two bugs introduced with last versions.
For pChat color users, entry was generally set to dark red with v2.3
and an error at startup for few people who left a guild while using version 2.1+

v2.3
=======
- You can now choose in which tab System messages are displayed As the option is tab-dependant, the checkbox is in the parameters of your tab.
Take care: As a lot of addons output to chat, you're strongly prompted to keep at least SysMessages in 1 tab.
Developpers: Due to restrictions, pChat will snip your output to ChatSystem before this one will be completly ready (mainly for AddonLoaded debug).
- Fixes rares bugs with unknown books linked into the chat, convertName which was failing in some rares cases and Guild Reorganization

v2.2a
=======
- Automatic party switch re-enabled
- Fixed rare bug with Guild Reorganizations

v2.2
=======
- Fonts now use LibmediaProvider. Your font list may now be longer than before and shared with all addons
- Fixed font "Droid Sans"


v2.1
=======

- Added Font selector

15 new fonts included for people who would like to change their font.
To add yourself a font :
First, download a font with TrueType format (.ttf) or OpenType format (.otf)
Then paste it in pChat\fonts folder. You can create a new folder or just put the file here, as you want. Please don't include .txt files
Then, open with a text editor file pChat\fonts.lua (use notepad or a better tool, like Notepad++)
At the end of file, add your font like this : pChat.fontCollection["Font Name"] = "pChat/fonts/Folder/file.ttf" - Windows users must use "/" also.
Save and close.
Do a /ReloadUI ingame
Go in pChat settings, your font will be added in the dropdown Fonts. Just select it. It will reloadUI your game.
Take Care of Minion and updates, Minion and Updates generally erase the whole content of an addon. If your font is erased the chat won't be shown and the entrybox will be really small. If you get this problem, you can still type commands (like /reloadui) or go in pChat Settings and select font "ESO Standard Font"

EU Users : If you need to use your language specific characters, Here are the characters that the game actually handles. Some fonts don't include all of them : !\"#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>[email protected] ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ [\]^_`abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz{|} ~-

- Added anti-reorganization guild :
When you leave a guild, and the guild you just left was not the last of your list, the guilds are reorganized. Leaving Guild1 means your guild2 become 1, the 3 become2, etc
So, now, when you leave a guild, pChat just rollback your guild color settings / Chat tabs settings / Your pChat default channel

- Fixed color of entry box for users of pChat colors. Now the entry color is same as 1st pChat color. If you use ESO social colors, you don't care of this fix.


v2
=======
- Added an Anti-Spam : For now, 3 subfilters :
Flood, Enabled per default. Protects Only geo-channels (Zone, ZFR, ZDE, ZEN, Say, Yells, Emote) Same messages in defined timer (0-180 seconds, 30 per default) are dropped.
Looking For : Disabled per default, Drop LFG/LFM messages in all channels
Want To : Disabled per default, Drop WTB/WTS/WTT messages in all channels

Please note: For Looking For and Want To message, if you enable the protection and YOU bypass the system, it will auto disable for a certain period, configurable, in minutes (0-10, 5 per default).

Guild Recruitment and Gold Spam will be added in a future release.

- Added feature: Wisp Char instead of account in Guild messages, if only Character name is shown
EU Users : If you cannot group your guildmates with accentued chars, the guildmate MUST submit an ingame ticket to ZOS for renaming due to Accentuation problem (generally done in a day).

Please backup your SavedVariables regularly. Logout of the game before doing this! pChat will update soon and support server dependent settings + histories!

!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
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 above "[Troubleshooting AddOn install/find & reporting errors]". Please click the link.

pChat Howto Install/Update, Known bugs/incompatibilities

Are you manually updating addons?
1. Logout before update
2. Delete the pChat addon folder (find the folder here: https://www.esoui.com/forums/faq.php..._howto_install)
3. Download the most actual version of pChat and install it to the AddOns folder like described in the link here (https://www.esoui.com/forums/faq.php..._howto_install)
4. Read the addon description (https://www.esoui.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=93) and install all needed libraries linked below "Needed libraries/dependencies" ! Do the same like with pChat. Delete old folders before extracting the new ones
Do NOT install any libChat version anymore! Also LibGarfield is breaking pChat so deinstall it!
Be sure to install LibMainMenu and not LibMainMenu2!
5. Login.
6. Enable pChat and all needed libraries in the dependencies (also the ones named below "Included libraries:", except "Custom Titles"


If you are using Minion to update addons:
1. Logout before update
2. If you are updating from a version BELOW 9.4.0.0:
If you make sure everything works well: Right click the addon at the "Installed" tab and choose "Uninstall".
Click the "Find more" tab and search for pChat, then Install it new.
Or right click the addon at the "Installed" tab and choose "reinstall".
If you are updating from a version >= 9.4.0.0
Should be enough to press the "Update" button.
3. Read the addon description (https://www.esoui.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=93) and install all needed libraries linked below "Needed libraries/dependencies" ! Do the same like with pChat and install them from the "Find more" tab, or "Reinstall" them by right clicking them at the "Installed" tab.
Do NOT install any libChat version anymore! Also LibGardfield counts as libChat and needs to be deinstalled!
Be sure to install LibMainMenu and not LibMainMenu2!
5. Login.
6. Enable pChat and all needed libraries in the dependencies (also the ones named below "Included libraries:", except "Custom Titles"


Older versions:
https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info93-pChat.html#other
Manually install it like described above!


Addon installation:
https://www.esoui.com/forums/faq.php..._howto_install


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.


The following addons or libraries used in these addons could disturb pChat and shouldn't be used together with pChat. There might be/exist other addons doing the same, so you might need to change the disturbing addon to other one(s), or contact their authors to remove/update the included libraries properly and ALWAYS as the libraries get updated:
  1. Superstar (Contacted addon dev to remove hardcoded LibMainMenu and let it use the standalone installed, properly updated library version)

    Workaround for you:
    -If a folder lib or libs or libraries exists delete the subfolder LibMainMenu from it!
    -Change the addon's txt file like eg. SuperStar.txt or HarvestMap.txt or PvPMeter.txt (<Addon's name>.txt)

    Delete this kind of line (could be libs or lib or libraries and instead of / a \ for the folder delimiter):
    Code:
    libs/libMainMenu/LibMainMenu.lua
    Add:
    Code:
    ## DependsOn: LibMainMenu
    If ## DependsOn: already exists just add LibMainMneu in the line after the existing text, seperated with a space.

    If a line ## OptionalDependsOn: exists already, remove LibMainMenu from it (if it's in the line) as it is in ## DependsOn now!
    Code:
    Old:
    ## OptionalDependsOn: LibAddonMenu-2.0 LibMainMenu Lib...
    
    New:
    ## OptionalDependsOn: LibAddonMenu-2.0 Lib...
  2. HarvestMap: See HarvestMap "Known bugs" below. For a workaround see "Superstar" explanation above. It's the same problem!
  3. PvPMeter: See HarvestMap "Known bugs" below. For a workaround see "Superstar" explanation above. It's the same problem!
    Attention: The library is located within HarvestMap/modules/HarvestMap/lib folder!
  4. Kill Counter: See HarvestMap "Known bugs" below. For a workaround see "Superstar" explanation above. It's the same problem!


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. My other addons chat related stuff is not working if I enable pChat: Read the "Known incompatiblity with other addons" section and check your libraries, especially "libChat2", and "LibMainMenu".
  3. If you see NIL in your chat, or your colors and name formatting is not working: Delete the library "libChat2" (and libChat, libChat3) as it is not needed anymore for this addon and since Harrowstorm does not even work anymore (as informed in the changelog and description).
  4. pChat Version >=v9.4.0.1: Incompatibility with HarvestMap/SuperStar/PVPMeter/KillCounter or any other addon using "LibMainMenu"
    Code:
    user:/AddOns/pChat/AutomatedMessages.lua:274: function expected instead of nil
  5. Entering Cyrodiil throws a lua error message (and at reloadui in Cyrodiil as well).
    LibMainMenu issue. Maybe problem of CyrHUD or Superstar (see above) or other addon's using the lib in old versions
  6. 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%


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


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.

Did you check the setings of pChat? There also are name settings for the zone and group messages.
Often ppl overlook the guild settings but as you say you found those and they work, you maybe overlooked the own settings for the group and non-guild stuff?

If this does not work for you you need to turn off other addons please and test if this works with ONLY pChat and needed dependencies enabled (just tested for myself: It does work fine).

pChat now uses LibMainMenu-2.0 instead of LibMainMenu.
LibMainMenu must not be used anylonger and was disabled.
Please deinstall LibMainMenu 1!
And install LibMainMenu-2.0 instead.

Thank you

Hey! Thank you so much for that super fast reply and for even testing on PTS.

Sorry, i should have described the issure more specifically: the right click context menu just did not show up.

I disabled all other addons and it WORKS now! Silly me, i should have tried that first. Will try to figure out which one interfered (but in the end i do not mind - i need only No Thank You and pChat on the PTS).

Thanks for the help and for the awesome addon

What means "Doesn't work for me"? More details please! What you did try, what shows/does not show (popup dialog with text) and where it does not work like on NA/EU server...


Should work on EU, NA and PTS, yes.
Enable it in the settings (PTS and EU/NA do not share the same settings! So you need to setup the addons new there on PTS) and use the normal right click context menu at the chat messages.

If this does not work on PTS either something was changed there with the last PTS update (which did not break it for me though ), or your got any other addon enabled which breaks it?
Did you check with only pChat and the newest dependencies installed?

Edit:
My PTS tests just now showed it works fine.
Normal 1 message right click and copy (white = say / dark yellow = zone):


More messages copy (discussion copy):


More messages (whole chat copy):


So whatever is not working for you might be because of old libraries, non updated pChat version or any other addon interfering then.

Re: Thx for this great addon! Never had any problems although

Only one problem I see:
if I'm in a group and port into a dungeon for example for pledges I fall back to standard channel, i.e. /g1. Of course group channel settings are ON.

Same at rivalry rChat I tested. (Now I'm back at pChat because your addon has more possibilities of configuration.)
/g1 is your chosen default chat channel in pChat which is shown after you login into the game e.g.?
The behaviour is normal than as the same event is triggered after porting into a dungeon as if a loading screen with zone change or login was triggered.

I can have a look if there is an easy way to fix this.

Personally I'm using multiple chat tabs as I hate having all chat on 1 tab. There is one extra tab for group, so you can see the group and boss speech (npc) etc. there clean wtihout any zone bla bla.
If you combine pChat with e.g. FCOChatTabBrain you can make the chat tab and channel auto switch for your needs. e.g. if a group message comes in it will auto switch to the group tab and show you the messages. If you press the return key the chat channel will be /p already and you just need to start typing.
Same works if you define an own guilds tab. It even is able to recognize if your last incoming message (as you were inactive in the chat, means no mouse movement above the chat, no typing in chat) was guild1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 and if you press return it will switch to the according /g<number> chat channel. Same works for whisper messages (I got an own whisper tab as well).
FCOCTB btw also provides special sound notifications for group members, leaders, guild masters and so on.

My chat is pretty automated this way, using sounds and notifications from pChat and FCOCTB+ automatic answer possiblities.
I just need to read, relax and press return to type

Re: Question about settings

pChat provides settings for the whipser message format and it normally "forces" to use the set setting then as well, like @accountName/charname or charName/@accountName.
But I sometimes got this happening as well that the @accountName is missing. It's somehow a problem that the incoming whisper messages do not provide the @accountName anymore in the ESO code parameters. pChat just tries to use it then, does not find it, and just writes the /charname or charname/ into the chat.

Haven't found a way to fix this so far or let's say I had not the time to invest to digin deeper as it is not always happening.
If I find out what is causing this I might be able to fix it, but for the moment it's just a "visual bug" and I won't work on it.
Added it to the known bugs list above.
Thanks for the understanding.

P.S.
I'm not testing anything related to/happening in combination with bandits addon! They often hack/change standard eso code, or even include changed library code (in the past). I cannot be sure what is a problem and what isn't, and searching/finding out what causes what is just a pain in the ***. Sorry.
If the same problem occurs without Bandits addons enabled: I'd have a look. If not: Ask Bandit's dev for a fix please.

@all
Anyone has the problem that you see in whisper messages the nickname of char and not id of person.
I have the preferred id show in vanilla settings and show ID in the bandits UI and in all guild tabs. And it shows everywhere the id apart of damn whisper messages Can't find setting that enforce id in the whisper messages. Anyone with a solution?

Isn't there a mention setting to use the whole character name "only" instead of parts of the character name? I remember there was somehow.
Should be named "Match your names as whole words only?"
-> "Whether or not to match your character names as whole words only. If you have a very short name in your character name, you may want to turn this on."

Check the tooltips of the mentions settings please, as this is not my addon part. Chatmentions was a standalone addon of Coorbin who has implemented this into pChat.
It does not appear to be doing what it says it does. My character's name is "Dye it Moxie" and whether that setting is on or off, it still triggers whenever someone says "it" in chat, or if they'd said "hit," "italy," or even "mitt."
Hi! Sorry for the late reply. It seems there is a bug in the whole word matching. However, you can turn off "Apply to my character names?" to have it not check ANY of your character's names. From that point, just type in newline-separated names you want to be pinged on in the "Extra names to ping on" box. Let me know if that helps.

Re: Re: Automated Messages Not Working?

Got it working. Turns out I'd entered the "boom" bit as "!boom" so it was entirely my fault. I misunderstood the directions.

I read through the sticky but none of it applies to me as far as I can tell. Thanks for your help.
If you read the sticky then you also read that you need to provide MORE information if you report a bug, right?
Please tell me more details, like does it work if tested with only pChat enabled.

It's working fine for >100 members of 3 guilds I have recently asked so either you got a problem related to other addons enabled which cause this or your pChat installation might be broken.
Try to logout, delete the whole pChat folder in live/Addons, reinstall it, reinstall the needed libraries with the newest versions as well!

Login, disable ALL other addons, only test with pChat and try if it works. If not I'm not sure why not sorry. It does work fine as I wrote above.
Check twice that all other addons and libraries are disabled, especially chat related ones.
