ChatBubble Skin in protected Area (Updated for Shadowlands)

1
Since Blizzard protected the ChatBubbles in Dungeons/Raid/Garrison, AddOns are not able to skin the ChatBubbles anymore.

You can still achieve it, with interface textures:

Note: If you are using this texture files. You are forced to use the texture, you cant disable it via any AddOn.

Code: Select all

World of Warcraft \ _retail_ \ Interface\ Tooltips
    ChatBubble.blp
    ChatBubbleVertical.blp

Inside this folder are the different texture files, the one you want to use you need to place in the main Tooltip folder.

also note, you can have ElvUI's chat bubble style disabled in order to have these textures on all chat bubbles, regardless of the area you are in.

edit, spoiler on part of this comment cause it's outdated for Shadowlands anyways.

note (as of 8/3/17): if you want the ability to change the font size/etc then download this: ElvUI.zip and update your ElvUI as normal. it's the development branch of ElvUI, which is alpha. it supports changing the blizzard chat bubble font based around where we style the font in our chat bubbles, so you can have chat bubble `style = disabled` but still change the font (which will apply to these bubbles).

Yep i do know ^^ but i understand that probably in the next build we'll be able to change fonts directly in Elvui even if they are disabled (of course using tooltips tricks) :)
Death is not the end, but only a transition

So Next version will also add tooltip script in interface ? or de we have to do it manually ?
What kind of script? If i mentioned in the "Guide" on the top. If you want to use the texture for the chat bubbles in protected area you have to download the image files we posted above. The next release will only deal with the fonts in the chat bubbles.
