Wanted: chat addon that removes the onmouseover background alpha thingy!

So yea, is there an addon that removes the growing of alpha when I point the chat frame with my mouse?

Thanks in advance.

Nvm, this can be deleted. If someone wonders the same thing, you can do this simply with Prat, go to Display Settings - Frames - Set Chatframe Alpha

I think Chatter can do this as well.

Just incase anyone is looking for a Prat alternative that does this.

thats funny because i want the exact same thing and haven't been able to fix it with chatter or prat. i can set the normal background alpha, but always upon mouseover, the background goes back to default alpha. i was told it was a bug on blizzards part and should be fixed later... now ill go mess with this more....

Here's a easy way of doing it (Pretty sure this will work!)

Interface > AddOns > ChatAlphaBye
  • ChatAlphaBye.toc
    Code:
    ## Title: ChatAlphaBye
    ## Version: 1.0
    ## Author: khurzog
    ## Credits: Phanx
    
    ChatAlphaBye.lua
  • ChatAlphaBye.lua
    Code:
    DEFAULT_CHATFRAME_ALPHA = 0

Save and play!

That, or just enter DEFAULT_CHATFRAME_ALPHA = 0 at the top of any Lua file in any addon you always have enabled.

This would be creating a derivative work, and you should not to this to any addon that is not licensed to allow this. In addition you would have to remember to redo this change anytime you updated the choosen addon to modify. So the others idea is better, an standalone addon that does just this for you.

Actually when you don't redistribute the addon, nobody really cares what you do to it. :P

But yeah, you'd have to re-add it every time you update the addon then.

Do you just follow me around the Internet making pointless posts for the sake of contradicting everything I say? Twobits, meet Sun. Sun, meet Twobits. lol.
