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

Choose your version of the game: Retail, Classic or Burning Crusade Classic.

Choose between Red, Blue and Grey versions, then choose between Regular/Opaque and Transparent buttons.

1. You'll download this file:
elvui_login_screen_and_character_select.zip

2. Inside of which you'll find these folders
  • Retail
  • Classic and TBC
  • README.md
  • README.txt
3. Inside of either you will find
  • Blue
  • Red
  • Grey
4. The Red, Blue and Grey folders mean the colored version you want, choose one and inside that folder you will find these folders:
  • Regular
  • Transparent
5. Meaning the type of button you want, regular or transparent buttons. Choose one and inside you'll find the following folders:
  • Buttons
  • COMMON
  • FrameGeneral
  • friendsframe
  • Glues
  • HELPFRAME
  • Interface
  • lfgframe
  • MacroFrame
  • options
  • optionsframe
  • PaperDollInfoFrame
  • STORE
  • Tooltips
  • Vehicles
6. You need to extract these folders into your version of the game as follows:

World of Warcraft\_retail_\Interface\ for Retail
World of Warcraft\_classic_era_\Interface\ for Classic
World of Warcraft\_classic_\Interface\ for Wrath Classic


If you extract them elsewhere they will not work.


Wrath Classic and Classic:
Due to the way blizzard uses the highlights some places will have mismatching sizes since the files are used on more than one place, this happens on the default UI as well but its more hidden due to its appereance.
Classic will have different coloring despite using the same files due to the way the engine handles the glues

  • lfgframe
  • MacroFrame

Hey. I think the blue transparent and regular ones are looking the same. I tried loading both separately and nothing changed.

@laloute

I have no idea why this started happening but it seems to be related to 7zip, try a different program for now until 7zip updates

How can I edit the font on the character screen on retail? I want to get Expressway to be my font

@Hellsy55

Not sure why that happened, maybe a corrupt download or upload so i've reuploaded the same file to see if fixes it as i have not run into the issue

Hellsy55 Nov 16, 2022 at 04:01

Hey. Thank you for the update and the work you put into these textures :) As of today's update there seems to be an error while trying to unzip some of the files from the Blue and Grey folders from Retail, did'nt try with Classic and Wrath. The Red texutes folder is working fine for unzipping and loading in-game.

@florent

I don't speak french so i didnt quite understand what you meant (automatic translation didnt really help much). Do you need help installing or updating? Updating would be just extract the new version to the same folders, no need to delete any files. For Dragonflight i have not yet started updating as Blizzard as a tendency to make last minute changes

--Google translate:
Je ne parle pas français, donc je n'ai pas bien compris ce que vous vouliez dire (la traduction automatique n'a pas vraiment aidé beaucoup). Avez-vous besoin d'aide pour installer ou mettre à jour ? La mise à jour consisterait simplement à extraire la nouvelle version dans les mêmes dossiers, pas besoin de supprimer des fichiers. Pour Dragonflight, je n'ai pas encore commencé la mise à jour en tant que Blizzard car j'ai tendance à faire des changements de dernière minute

@jumpin_beans101, hey sorry for the late reply but i dont check this page often, changing the colors involves changing the files and since there's multiple versions now (tbc/classic/retail) i dont intend to add new colors as each new color would add more time

jumpin_beans101 Mar 07, 2022 at 23:58

Hi Eltreum. I was wondeing if there is a way to change the color to gold instead of the red/blue/grey options available.

eltreum Dec 18, 2021 at 01:20

As is written on the description, this is not an addon but a glue replacement.

It does not go into the addon folder and it does not have a toc, please read the instructions on how to install it
