pChat (Chat customization & help: look/notification/sound/automation/history)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 10.0.3.0
by: Puddy, Ayantir, Baertram, DesertDwellers
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.

  • 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.

-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.

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.

## v10.0.0.5 ##

## 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.

In RP we often hit the message character limit and it's a struggle when you can't see the first part of your post. Grammar is hard if you don't remember how you started the sentence, and going back to change a comma to a period is a major pain. If pchat can't do it, does anyone know another addon that might?

Thanks either way!!
I guess it would somehow be possible but with a lot of work, as you need to enable multiline at the editbox (which should be possible by default, e.g. at the mail send panel the mail text editbox is able to) and then test if the chat is working properly with it. Multiline would allow line breaks which need to be filtered from the send messages again -> I see alot of compatibility issues coming up here )
Beside that the anchor of te normal chat above the editbox needs to be changed and respected during chat -> min -> max, the scrollbars and all other added buttons etc.

I like the idea but doing this in the near future is nothing I'm able to do and test (with all that other chat related addons out there this will be a mess).

Sorry for the kinda half-bad news but maybe ask in the addon search forum for someone who is willing to try this. You can tell them they can feel free to use my pChat Github Repository to try to implement this "within pChat" if they like to, so we can include it here. But the doing and testing is up to them, I can only assist where possible.

Isn't the guild chat addon you posted the Screenshot of already doing this?

I'm not planning to add new features to pChat as it is very complex already to keep all the current settings running properly. Adding such simple level/cp level sounds easy but you need to check and test a bunch of things like compatibility with other addons history of pChat working still fine, formatting, chat mentions of names still working properly and so on...

Like this in guildchat addon:
I mean some people may found it's useful when you'r looking for someone with low level in guild channel to start a daily random 4-men dungeon so that could avoid DLC dungeons (because low level players can't be assigned into a DLC dungeon). When other players response my LFM message in guild channel, I can easily decide to invite them or not, without open guild menu and search them for check thier level. May be this could be an optional function for the people who really need this.

Yes, it's because of the ZOs changes at the drawTier/layer/level. Controls now explicitly need to get a proper z-axis else they are shown but actually lay behind another control (in this case the chat background) and are thus not interactable anymore...
I'm working on a fix.

Edit: Fixed with next update.

Yes, I think this bascially is the issue here.
pChat got some regular expressions detecting itemLinks in the chat, which start with h1 or h0 and maybe it detects that hs then too in a wrong way.
Need to look into this *sigh*

Edit:
Found out that it got to do with pChat adding a link handler (clickable username for copy chat etc.).
If the link handler is disabled it works fine.

Is it possible for pChat to correctly display messages generated by the "quick chat emotes"? These are the ones available in Gamepad UI by default. Keyboard users can now also assign them to the new "Emotes" wheel.

Whenever another player or myself try to use an emote like "Hello" or "Goodbye", all I would see in pChat is text like "hs0" or "hs1". But with pChat disabled, then the vanilla chat box displays the correct text.

Thanks!

(For as long as I can remember, I've seen messages from other players like "hs0" and "hs1" and I had no idea what they meant -- I thought it was some form of shorthand lol)
They kind of are shorthands I often use hs1/2 to indicate at heavy sacks towards the group. But ESO also uses those hs... as ID or index for their quickchat menu :/

https://esoapi.uesp.net/101034/src/i...nager.lua.html

tbh i m too lazy and dont understand enough of lua to go through it and check for what exactly the problem is which is causing pchat to print the id instead of the message.

What I think what happens is that eso sends the ID to the chat and their chathandler changes that to the correct text. But pchat takes effect beforehand, which is why only the ID arrives.

If you have seen anything else before your version was very very outdated and never updated since then.
Come on, just try to expand the submenus It's easy and should be self-explanatory.

ah, thank you for the response . I found it now, I were looking for another header so my brain automatically skipped "all other chat messages" and "party tweaks"
