  • 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

  • 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.

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.

## v10.0.2.2 ## 2021-06-22

## v10.0.2.1 ## 2021-06-20
-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 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.

Okay. Well, then it was independend from your chat tab settings. I thought it only should happen if the zh zone chat is enabled at the tab.

I added support for the /zhz /zhzone chinese zone chat now, should hopefully fix the error messages.
If not please post a new / current error message, thanks.

I tried:

And it was still producing UI Errors when Chinese was typed in zone chat.

Thanks for the info. This most likely happens because pChat does not support the new Chinese zones yet, I guess. At least the zone channel mentioned in the error message is the Chinese one.

I did not know it was added with this patch, will work on supporting it soon. I hope there aren't any other problems because of non supported characters/code pages,or as you meetings it "empty strings". Perhaps this is happening if any non drawable Chinese characters occur?

Re: Re: Re: bug

Interesting.
I did not need to change any setting, it works just before and after last patch.
So I guess it's another addon you got activated that interferes?

Or did you install pChat fresh with new SavedVariables? Maybe there is a bug with fresh installations where changing the settings fixes it.
I'll have a look if I can reproduce that.

Edit:
You are right, with fresh installation / savedvariables the prevent chat fade out won't work properly on first activation.
I'll see what Zos changed and try to fix it, thanks for the hint!

I'm not quite sure what you are asking for?
"the default Ding notification number for whispers": A sound played as incoming whispers appear? The vanilla UI does not play any sound on incoming whsipers so you mean pChat's default sound? Should be "NEW_NOTIFICATION". I'm not sure what index that is but you can see the name of the selected sound and they should be sorted by name at the slider.

Looked through every setting but couldn't find anything, perhaps I can do some change in files themselves to get rid of it?

Edit: I found it, in MessageFormatters.lua, there's a line
tellOut = "%s-> %s: |r%s%s%s|r", -- tell out
I just removed the -> (and space) and it's not showing anymore in my sent whispers, woohoo!

Edit 2: Another question that I forgot to ask, what is the default Ding notification number for whispers? I'd like to set that one so it's same sound as Mentions
Thank you, yeah, you answered the question I wondered, I'll see if I can find the "NEW_NOTIFICATION"!

As for editing with every update, that shouldn't be an issue, it's a quick edit, no idea how adding an option in game could be done or I'd offer to help with that if wanted and possible lol

Should be "NEW_NOTIFICATION". I'm not sure what index that is but you can see the name of the selected sound and they should be sorted by name at the slider.

Looked through every setting but couldn't find anything, perhaps I can do some change in files themselves to get rid of it?

Edit: I found it, in MessageFormatters.lua, there's a line
tellOut = "%s-> %s: |r%s%s%s|r", -- tell out
I just removed the -> (and space) and it's not showing anymore in my sent whispers, woohoo!

Edit 2: Another question that I forgot to ask, what is the default Ding notification number for whispers? I'd like to set that one so it's same sound as Mentions

I do not seem to understand what you are asking for?
The default game's chat IS at the left side, and not at the right side.

Did you enable the gamepad input mode?
pChat is created for the keyboard input mode so please disable the gamepad mode and/or check the settings for the gamepad input mode to use the keyboard chat instead (I think there is a setting to switch the chat mode if in gamepad input mode).


Did you enable the accessibility mode? Disable it at ESC -> Accessibilty. It will enable some gamepad features if it's enabled.
Hello!
And where is that option? "(I think there is a setting to switch the chat mode if in gamepad input mode)" that I can't find.
and i would like to do it
Check the setting of the game (gameplay) there is a drop down Box for input mode, and near that I think the chat handling was chosen too (keyboard chat/keyboard login mode). It's no addon setting but vanilla game, so please ask the game help/devs if you need further support for that (official eso forums or ingame help).
