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. PlayerName@AcountName and @AccountName/Playername available too.

  • Copy Text : You want to copy your chat ? Right click a chat message to put it to the chat editbox, and Ctrl+C to copy it to your clipboard then. Or open the copy dialog where you ca filter by chat channel and categories.
  • Search copy Text : You want to search your chat history and current chat? Open the copy dialog and click on the search button to show the search UI. Right clicking found chat entries can be copied to the chat editbox again (CTRL+C to copy it to your clipboard then). The chat channel and categories filters will change the chat search UI once you applied the filters.
  • 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.
  • Chat context menu (at names and/or messages) :
    -Setting: Show @AccountName/CharacterName (based on the chat channel and your pChat configuration for that chat channel! if you have not enabled @AccountName but only characterName it can be that @AccountName is missing!) in the context menu headline
    -Setting: Teleport to player (if in guild, group or on friends list)
    -Setting: Send mail to player
    -Setting:Ignore will ask before ignoring, with a Yes/No dialog (works in "Friends list" and "Report player" too as you try to ignore a player).

  • Added teleport slash commands :
    [color]
    /pchattpgl Port to group leader
    /tpgl Port to group leader
    /pchattppl Port to group leader
    /pchattpgm <name> Port to group member <1st found partial or full @displayName or character name>

    /tpg <guildIndex 1 to 5ptional> <name> Port to guild's <guildIndex> member <1st found partial or full @displayName or character name>
    [/color]
  • 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.

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

## v10.0.2.2 ## 2021-06-22
-Fixed error message for new pChat users, which had no SV to migrate to server dependent values yet

## 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 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.

ATTENTION - NEW DEPENDENCY since 2022-04-10:
LibAddonMenu - Sound slider widget https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info...dget.html#info



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 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's size and position somehow is weird / does not sync across charaters?
    If you got the "Chat config sync" setting enabled, then disable it and re enable it afterwards.
    Make sure the chat is NOT minimized as you enable the Chat Config Sync and your currently logged in char is the one you want to copy the settings from to other chars!!! Open your chat screen manually if it auto-closes when changing the setting.
  2. 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
  3. 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%
  4. Chat Mentions: Chat messages highlight/colorized and add the ! icon at your own send messages, even if you have disabled to do so.




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.

I don't know sorry,
The fonts are entered as .slug files
Code:
LMP:Register("font", "Arvo", "pChat/fonts/Arvo/Arvo-Regular.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "DejaVuSans", "pChat/fonts/DejaVu/DejaVuSans.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "DejaVuSansCondensed", "pChat/fonts/DejaVu/DejaVuSansCondensed.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "DejaVuSansMono", "pChat/fonts/DejaVu/DejaVuSansMono.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "DejaVuSerif", "pChat/fonts/DejaVu/DejaVuSerif.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "DroidSans", "pChat/fonts/Droid_Sans/DroidSans.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "OpenSans", "pChat/fonts/OpenSans/OpenSans-Regular.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "OpenSans Semibold", "pChat/fonts/OpenSans/OpenSans-Semibold.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "Prociono", "pChat/fonts/Prociono/Prociono-Regular.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "PT_Sans", "pChat/fonts/PT_Sans/PT_Sans-Web-Regular.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "Ubuntu", "pChat/fonts/Ubuntu/Ubuntu-Regular.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "Ubuntu Medium", "pChat/fonts/Ubuntu/Ubuntu-Medium.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "Vollkorn", "pChat/fonts/Vollkorn/Vollkorn-Regular.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "RuEsoChat", "pChat/fonts/RuEsoChat/RuEsoChat.slug")
LMP:Register("font", "OpenDyslexic", "pChat/fonts/OpenDyslexic/OpenDyslexicAlta-Regular.slug")
They are registered to pCaht via the library LibMediaProdiver.

And you select the fonts in the setitngs via the LibMediaProvider dropdown box then.
If that does not work anymore, I'm not sure what is the reason?
Update your LibMediaProvider and other libaries.

Is the problem happening for you with other addons enabled in combination?
Try to disable all, only keep pChat enabled!
is it still not working then?

Check your live/AddOns/pChat folder if the fonts folder exists, if the .slug files are in the subfolders.

What is your actual setup in ESO vanilla settings, prefer @account or character names?
And what did you configure pChat to use in /tell (whisper) messages as the name format? @account/charName, charname/@account, ....

That's only happening for players not on your guild/friend lists and not in group?
or is that player that tells you in your guilds/group/on the friends list?

I whipered a random player and let him answer, and the context menu showed me the nomal @accountName, no guild member data of 1st alphabetically ordered member:

Yeah it uses vanilla context menu which is quite different. I did not want to copy the whole bunch from pChat context menu to that one too.
I wanted to keep it shorter and cleaner.
If one needs the extra info one needs to right click the msg text or the timestamp.

That's on purpose. Send mail is missing too, obviously I thought one does not need the own lvl and zonenname (If I need that I click m or c or i).

Originally Posted by DewiMorgan

We cnanot get the zone, level, accountName or characterName (if 1 of the 2 is not shown in chat) from players not in group, guild or friendslist. So yes, that info is all missing here.

Missing SendMail is considered a bug then.
Found it and fixed it.

Yep, the linktype is different. I'll maybe add something there but not planned for now. Right clicking the timestamp should work?

Edit:
Please try this beta version
Testing with the beta version, with only pChat and Addon Selector (and BMU, where stated)

Known issues:
  • - BeamMeUp still blocks context menus if level is checked, but that's really a BMU thing not a pChat thing.

Stuff that got better:
  • - /tells now show a character level.
  • - "Show where the player is" appends a location to context menus for guildies in /zone, /tell, guild chat and group chat. Not tested: say, yell. Not tested: non-guildies in /tell and group chat.
  • - For zone and guild chat messages, the information is correct.

New bugs:
  • - In /tell, clicking the text by someone else, it seems to be showing the @name of the person who sent the /tell, but the character name, level, location, and email recipient of the alphabetically first username currently logged in, in guild #1.
  • - In /tell, clicking my own text fills with the @name of the person I'm sending the /tell to, rather than my own, and shows the character name, level, location, and email recipient of the alphabetically first username currently logged in, in guild #1.

Suggestions (old behavior that seems maybe incorrect):
  • - Rightclicking people's names doesn't decorate that context menu with any of this info about them.
  • - My own text (say, yell, zone, guild chat, group chat) doesn't fill with my level or location.
  • - Send email, character level, and now location are not populated for random people in Zone chat: Zone chat context menu only populates the name and @-name. That's reasonable: you probably don't know most of that info... but "Send Mail" should maybe be there.
  • - Emotes have no context menu.

Cool new feature, one minor bug with /tell.

Thanks for the confirmation!
I've found a few bugs or oversights and am fixing them already.
Hopefully afterwards the level/CP and even the zone (new feature, with setting) of the character is shown in the context menu then.

Edit:
Please try this beta version

Code:
--Working on:
--#22 Context menu from chat character name "Send mail" does not fill the receiver at the 2nd time used
--> BMU.PortalHandlerLayerPushed' is calling ClearMenu once! Asked @DeadSoon for a removal of ClearMenu there

---- Changelog version: 10.0.5.5
--Fixed:
--#20 Translation fixes (e.g. "player")
--#21 Context menu from chat character name does not show if "Character level at context menu" is enabled in settings
--#24 Ask before ignore dialog from chat context menu will disable itsself now properly according to the settings
--#25 Fixed mixed up settings texts

--Added:
--#23 Setting to show the current zone of the right clicked player in the context menu (only guild, friend, or group member)

Lazy bug reporting, sorry: I should have tried with no addons, etc.

Trying that now... and you are right as usual: I confirm it happens ONLY with both pChat and BeamMeUp installed. (No other addons other than AddOn Selector, and all their required libs)

I have not been able to reproduce this with whispers (which don't display the level) or with guild chat.

I have reproduced it with stuff I say in /zone and /say, and which randos say in /zone.

Steps to reproduce:
  • Disable all addons.
  • Enable pChat and BMU.
  • Open pchat settings and zone chat.
  • Say something in zone chat (you only need to say one thing, as all future tests will work with that, even through a /reloadui).
  • Right-click the zone text you wrote.

You should then see the context menu, unless the "Chat context menu"->"Character level at context menu" option is selected. Toggling the option immediately allows/prevents display of the context menu.

I tried to track this down, but gave up when I couldn't find where SI_FRIENDS_LIST_PANEL_TOOLTIP_LEVEL was defined
-> Edit: I found out that BeamMeUp addon is somehow calling ClearMenu via an event
EVENT_MANAGER:RegisterForEvent(appName, EVENT_ACTION_LAYER_PUSHED, BMU.PortalHandlerLayerPushed)
That causes pChat context menu on player or timestamp to close on first try.
I've contacted @DeadSoon to remove that ClearMenu there please

Beside that I could not reproduce your reported problem of any context menu not showing on characters in zone chat.
Does it need to be a guild member that posts in zone chat?
Or how do I reproduce that bug?

Edit2:
Seems if the character name is only shown in zone chat it's hard to detect the level for e.g. guild members. Trying to find a fix.



Thanks DewiMorgan, will have a look.

SI_FRIENDS_LIST_PANEL_TOOLTIP_LEVEL is just the constant for "Level" so not sure why this should be any issue.
It must have to do with the ShowMenu and ClearMenu calls I guess, as these control if a menu shows or hides.
Maybe any variable I check there is nil/not at the value it should be.

Hi and thanks for the feedback.
There only is one trigger after menus close, and at that time I'd have to know that you manually closed the chat window before (which is kind of hard to check as I only could "remember" you clicking on the button for minimize for example -> hacky way).

But that would also bring up following problems/tasks to check, e.g. if you manually maximized the chat again, or any other addon minimizes the chat via a keybind (you manually did it then too) etc.

In short: I do not plan to add such a bunch of checks for manual actions as this will become a never ending story...
What one could do is add a keybind (if pChat does not have that already in?) to minimize the chat -> so you just click hat and chat is small again after menus.
Or you disable the auto maximize after menus setting and have to manually maximize it again as you need to show it -> easiest solution

Re: Re: Re: unable to log in unless I disable pChat

Depending on your chat messages coming in, and the time range you have chosen to store the history (48 hours e.g.) it could blow of the SavedVariables to a very big size
I've for example disabled the history of system messages to circumvent this problem.
For me only the normal chat is relevant to be saved.

Unfortunately it's hard to make pChat automatically "cut off" at a specific size or number of entries. Depending on other addons loaded, their size f SV files, etc. it might make pChat strip data where not needed (too early).
So providing any clean up features or automatic filesize handling is nothing I'd like/am comfortable with to add as it's no problem only related to pChat. It's always in combination with all other addons and their SVs.


And in combination with any other addon that might have big SV files too, it will make the game then not load anymore properly.
If you experience that problem again you can only logout, have a look at the SV folder and remove big files from it (backup it somewhere else).
Load into the game and use the addon's "clean up savedVariables" features (if they provide such. pChat does not), or manually edit the SV files liek Dak explained (thanks).

I do have chat history enabled. I deleted the section you mentioned, but it didn't help. I scrolled down and saw there was a lot of stuff that looked like system messages. File size was huge again. I uninstalled and deleted the saved variables, then reinstalled again. I was able to log in and have disabled 'Restore System Messages'. Maybe that will help.

Thanks for the tips!

Create a new chat tab, right click and configure it to only show system messages (as kill feed should be a system message) and then your tab should only show the system messages.

Putting only kill feeds in 1 extra box is nothing that PChat will ever do, sorry.
Search PvP related addons for such a feature please.

The variables file had gotten quite large, so I removed it and reinstalled the addon. Things were working well until yesterday.

Is there anything you can think of that might be conflicting with pChat that I should check? Or a change I should make to the installation?

Thanks very much. Love this mod!
