Updated for Patch 8.0.5???

Make a back-up before you go changing things!!!


First things first download Notepad++. it's beginner friendly
https://notepad-plus-plus.org/

#1 Lets start easier…. Navigate to \ElvUI\Modules\unitframes and edit the unitframe.lua with Notepad++
Show
change Line: 249

Code: Select all

 frame.SPACING = 0
Save

#2 Now to ElvUI\Modules\skins\blizzard edit objectivetracker.lua
Show
Line 97 comment out by two – like so

Code: Select all

--bar:CreateBackdrop("Transparent")
Save!!!

#3 ElvUI\Core edit toolkit.lua
Show
Line 125

Code: Select all

 tile = false, tileSize = 0, edgeSize = 1,
Line 126

Code: Select all

insets = {left = -0, right = 0, top = 0, bottom = 0}
Line 145

Code: Select all

border:SetInside(f, 0, 0)
Line 148

Code: Select all

edgeSize = 1,
Line 149

Code: Select all

insets = { left = 0, right = 0, top = 0, bottom = 0 }
Line 157

Code: Select all

border:SetOutside(f, -1, -1)
Line161

Code: Select all

edgeSize = 1,
Line 162

Code: Select all

insets = { left = 0, right = 0, top = 0, bottom = 0 }


Now the best thing to do to keep this up to date is to keep a back of your files and when ElvUI is updated use the compare plug-in for Notepadd++ and update just these codes.

I have included a copy of these files here https://git.tukui.org/Cuppycake/TwoPixelBoarders
I will keep them updated more on git. As i can

I have been looking for instruction on this - that's awesome. It would be awesome if they could include the 2 pixel border as standard. Ah well. Can't have it all. Thank you muchly.

Or just download this: https://git.tukui.org/Klix/ElvUI_TwoPixelBorder and extract them in the repective folders, i will soon make a plugin so you just use it as a normal addon :)

You won't have to do AddOnSkins. I'm not removing the API for thick borders.
