made by eltreum
This is not an addon, but a button, glue and frame replacement.


There are 2 main versions, Red and Blue, which have two versions each: Regular and Transparent.

Installation

You'll download this file:
elvui_login_screen_and_character_select.zip

Inside of which you'll find these folders
  • Blue
  • Red
  • README.md
  • README.txt
The Red and Blue folders mean the colored version you want, choose one and inside that folder you will find these folders:
  • Regular
  • Transparent
Meaning the type of button you want, regular or transparent buttons. Choose one and inside you'll find the following folders:
  • Buttons
  • CharacterCreate
  • CHATFRAME
  • COMMON
  • DialogFrame
  • FrameGeneral
  • friendsframe
  • Glues
  • HELPFRAME
  • Interface
  • MacroFrame
  • optionsframe
  • PaperDollInfoFrame
  • STORE
  • Tooltips
  • Vehicles
You need to extract these folders into World of Warcraft\_retail_\Interface\

If you extract them elsewhere they will not work.


Classic Fix:
For Classic the highlight is used differently and it will break out of bounds on some buttons. The glues work for the most part and if you wish to use them extract the folders inside Classic Fix after choosing a version from above.
This means open the classic fix folder and extract the Glues folder inside of it into your Interface folder as you did above, but overwrite the contents with the file from Classic Fix.

Converted one file to fix classic, but these glues were not made focusing on classic so not all buttons are skinned.

I looked into it and tried to find a way for the highlight to work but due to how Blizzard uses the glues it will still break on some places. Do note that the glues were not made with classic in mind and them working for the most part is just due to how Blizzard reuses things.

I uploaded a new version that has a folder with the fixed file, simply extract it after choosing a version and overwrite the previous highlight for classic.

@eltreum Convert "Glue-Panel-Button-Highlight.blp" to *.tga will let classic client to use it correctly. But your pic's alpha channel is not intact, and also not fit for some buttons perfectly.

@bajgkdk

You can't auto install it, you need to extract to your Interface folder

bajgkdk Apr 08, 2021 at 05:09

wanted to install this addon but for me it sayes the same as bluespike said

@eltreum, thank you for the clarification. I didn't think you had done anything incorrectly, but it was the first time I've seen that folder structure, and I had to make sure that I was doing things correctly. The mods look good!

eltreum Mar 20, 2021 at 00:22

@Myrroddin

It should look like Interface\Interface\FrameGeneral

Blizzard has another Interface folder inside Interface for some reason, i cant do anything about it.

The simplest way is to just extract the zip into your _retail_\Interface

Myrroddin Mar 19, 2021 at 02:41

I want to clarify one of the shipped folders. After unzipping, there is an Interface folder, which has a FrameGeneral folder. After "installing", should that specific folder look like \World of Warcraft\_retail_\Interface\Interface\FrameGeneral, or should it look like \World of Warcraft\_retail_\Interface\FrameGeneral like all the other shipped folders?

IE: Interface\Interface\FrameGeneral or Interface\FrameGeneral?

Yeah jbleedge, blizzard usually doesn't change glues mid expansion. So this should be fine till 10.0.

I've updated the version but no changes in the files

jbleedge Mar 14, 2021 at 14:31

After 9.0.5 I juist had to put all the folders back into /Interface again and it's working

i can't ty enough for this!! love, love, love! Aurora Missing Textures had four colors. I think it was red and blue also and then green and pink even lol. but it doesn't work anymore and no one is doing anything with it. so glad to see this one. there was an addon like this for Elv but it didn't have any options and stopped being maintained too. so, ty so much for this!

@Warlauke

Yeah i'd like to update it for classic as well, but i haven't figured out the source of that green overlay. It usually happens due to the image file not being supported (as the same thing happens with retail addons if you use a higher resolution image than its supported).

I noticed the 128redbutton.blp and bluegoldbutton.blp are different in classic, but modifying those has not changed anything for me. I tried the highlights as well but it also didnt work, i assume classic has a different file structure and thats causing the problem.

Warlauke Feb 23, 2021 at 07:35

A Classic version of this would be great. You can use most of this with Classic the only issue you run into is some buttons are green on hover https://files.catbox.moe/nxys87.jpg

Nightwalker559 Jan 30, 2021 at 16:54
