Store BeGone!

Version: 1.2
by: Dridzt [More]

This removes the Blizzard Store functionality from the game as well lets the Help and Support Microbutton show in place of the Shop Microbutton as it did prior to 5.4.2.

Only tested with default UI, if you want the button removed in your custom UI put in a request with that UI author

Note1: If you decide to uninstall this addon and want the Store functionality back you will need to run this little script in game.

Code:
/run EnableAddOn("Blizzard_StoreUI")
/reload
Note2: If you are more interested in a functional replacement of just the Shop Microbutton that doesn't disable the whole thing
check out my other addon Blizz Shop to LFoR (Blizz Store to Raid Browser).
Use one or the other not both at the same time

1.2-50400
========
- Solve a taint issue with the Talent Frame.

1.1-50400
========
- Also remove the Shop button added in the GameMenu with build 17688.

The help icon over the system icon is just Blizz swapping the help and support icon for the system icon, no idea if that's on purpose or accidental.

As for the shop button at the character select screen that's not removable by a traditional addon.

However for anyone that wants to hide it the solution is to visit their account management page and enable parental controls.
There is no need to put other restrictions in place, the defaults are fine and the button will be gone.

Blizz is bound and determined to have this shop button in the game. It's now shown up on the select-character screen.

Also, the button that is the game menu now has the ? icon with a bright green line under it in place of the computer face. I'm wondering if the computer face is overlaid with the ? but not perfectly?

If they'd put it on the select character window in the first place I wouldn't have ever looked to get rid of it.

Not quite up for seeing what's there now...

ETA: btw, I never meant to imply you should change anything to accomodate other addons, I was just remarking and being sarcastic, mostly referencing how much effort is going into getting rid of the stupid button. Shortly after I posted that, ACP updated, and it was fixed.

I don't see any mention of my addon in the error trace you posted.
I'll double check that I can change talents through the default UI but I don't think I'm doing anything that could cause that.

Edit: I managed to reproduce this, I'll see what I can do.

Thank you so much for your work and fixing the problem. Works like a charm and no more errors.

When your code takes the shop button out of the game menu, it resizes, and the Return to Game button is *still* over the bottom edge.

It looks kinda cool, actually, as if that button is getting extra emphasis.

I'll just keep telling myself that.
Contrary to similar addons what I do is 'tell the game' that the Store is disabled and let it manage its own frames, be it micromenu or game menu.
That saves my addon from having to reposition tooltips, resize frames etc, the game does that on its own.

Unfortunately I don't intend to put in workarounds for addons that hardcode positions, they'd be best served by getting sizing and visibility info from the game and position accordingly.

Thank you!

I want the game interface to be about the game mechanics, whether that has to do with my armor, my ancillary robots (hunter pets, vanity pets, now combat pets...), or my actions.

I don't need to be able to buy a pet in the game.

Now, if Blizz had made it so that you could get those pets with *ingame money*, i.e. gold, that would be another thing. I'd probably still want to hide it, but I'd be more willing to check it every so often.

Do you want to have this discussion on the comments?

This is an addon hosting site, some players obviously want to get rid of the store button for whatever reason.
Personally, it's because I like to pretend a cash shop doesn't exist in a subscription game, something that was easier when there was only a webshop.

They're making it harder for me to remain oblivious by pushing it front and center in the UI but I'm fighting to keep my illusion
Understandable I guess.
