Transparent Chat bubbles
Version: 50100.1a
by: ravagernl [More]
This removes the black background for the chat bubbles and gives the font an outline so it's readable again.
Nice for people that want to actually see what's going on in combat (and especially in PVP with people that are yelling)

Amazing addon!
I use a surrond display so i tend to get my chat buuble HUGE! And this addon fixed it for me! But a new problem appears! The quest text when its dark get a double black shadow makin it almost impossible to read! any way to disable this or even change the qst font color from black to something other?

Thx

Love it, been hating those chatbubbles for as long as i can remember.
You wouldn't know how to change the say/yell etc font would you? Can it be done with this?
Cheers!

That's the right folder yes, sorry should have specified it myself.

And ok, will edit my local copy, I don't expect the addon to change much and even if it does should be a trivial edit

Also a slight edit to your code, more for the benefit of non-coders that might stumble on this and would like to perform a similar edit.
It needs to be an in-equality test for the texture to skip ie
Code:
if region:GetObjectType() == "Texture" and region:GetTexture() ~= [[Interface\Tooltips\CHATBUBBLE-TAIL]] then
        region:SetTexture(nil)

So basically where you're iterating regions looking for textures to remove, skip that one if the option is set.

This would make it so this and only this part of the bubble remains visible.
I think you need to edit line 18 to read something along the lines of
lua Code:
  1. if region:GetObjectType() == "Texture" and region:GetTexture() == [[Interface\Tooltips\CHATBUBBLE-TAIL]] then
  2.     region:SetTexture(nil)
Not sure if the texture you specified is located in that folder but I think you should be able to figure it out

First of all, thank you.

I always forget I need to extract the github zip and then rezip it New version 50100.1a should fix this.
