ElvUI Login Screen and Character Select Glues

Version: 2.1.3
by: Eltreum [More]

This is not an addon, but a button, glue and frame replacement.


There are 2 main versions, Red and Blue, which have two versions each: Regular and Transparent.

Installation

You'll download this file:
elvui_login_screen_and_character_select.zip

Choose your version of the game: Retail, Classic or Burning Crusade Classic.
Classic and Burning Crusade Classic use the same files inside the Classic and TBC folder


Inside the file the Folder structure is as follows:

  • Readme.md
  • Readme.txt




  • Retail
    > Blue
    >>>>> Regular
    >>>>>>>>Folders you need to extract
    >>>>> Transparent
    >>>>>>>>Folders you need to extract

    > Red
    >>>>> Regular
    >>>>>>>>Folders you need to extract
    >>>>> Transparent
    >>>>>>>>Folders you need to extract




  • Classic and TBC
    > Blue
    >>>>> Regular
    >>>>>>>>Folders you need to extract
    >>>>> Transparent
    >>>>>>>>Folders you need to extract

    > Red
    >>>>> Regular
    >>>>>>>>Folders you need to extract
    >>>>> Transparent
    >>>>>>>>Folders you need to extract





The Red and Blue folders mean the colored version you want, choose one and inside that folder you will find these folders:
  • Regular
  • Transparent
Meaning the type of button you want, regular or transparent buttons. Choose one and inside you'll find the following folders:
  • Buttons
  • CharacterCreate
  • CHATFRAME
  • COMMON
  • DialogFrame
  • FrameGeneral
  • friendsframe
  • Glues
  • HELPFRAME
  • Interface
  • MacroFrame
  • optionsframe
  • PaperDollInfoFrame
  • STORE
  • Tooltips
  • Vehicles

You need to extract these folders into

World of Warcraft\_retail_\Interface\ for Retail
World of Warcraft\_classic_era_\Interface\ for Classic
World of Warcraft\_classic_\Interface\ for Burning Crusade Classic

If you extract them elsewhere they will not work.


Burning Crusade Classic and Classic Fix:
Due to the way blizzard uses the highlights some places will have mismatching sizes since the files are used on more than one place, this happens on the default UI as well but its more hidden due to its appereance.
Classic will have different coloring despite using the same files due to the way the engine handles the glues



This addon is an update of https://www.tukui.org/addons.php?id=115

Uninstalling

In order to uninstall you'll need to navigate to your World of Warcraft\_retail_\Interface\ and then delete the following folders:
  • Buttons
  • CharacterCreate
  • CHATFRAME
  • COMMON
  • DialogFrame
  • FrameGeneral
  • friendsframe
  • Glues
  • HELPFRAME
  • Interface
  • MacroFrame
  • optionsframe
  • PaperDollInfoFrame
  • STORE
  • Tooltips
  • Vehicles

After deleting these folders the login screen and character select will return to normal after rebooting the game.
Do not delete the addon folder or you'll delete your addons

Alot of textures especially borders are used by other frames too.

Without editing game files or creating an addon to replace/change the texture paths you can't achieve the default look while replacing the complete LoginScreen.

People could try to go without those parts (compromise) but that would look a bit weird in my opinion.

So either you have a scuffed LoginScreen or some game frames like the LFDFrame look a bit off.

Ofc its possible to complete it but also alot of work which includes maintaining.

As you mentioned its for people who already use replacements, textures or UI's like ElvUI.

And a big thing is to make textures work in different resolutions which is also alot of work and I highly respect that.

But still, I really like your edits and the style is matching my UI/helping me to create new stuff around it.

My UI is still in work (for a long time) and I also change/update alot of code to fix the round icons to make them match the frames.

I will probably share and release a bunch of addons, edits and UI related stuff (Textures, QoL) in the future but I can't tell when this exactly happens.

Theres alot of messy stuff to fix to actually make it user-friendly and with shadowlands I am not that active (again) anymore.

Most likely you didnt replaced all textures, at least with the grey regular-pack the lfg-frame should be skinned completely.

I edited most blizzard textures but for these parts everything worked out of the box.

See my UI: https://imgur.com/a/geeUwI8

Since I play with the default UI but replaced/edited almost all possible textures I am not 100% sure if some parts are missing but consider to complete it with your own textures or some similar replacements like: Aurora-Missing-Textures

Any fix?
The glues used on the login screen are also used in game, if you disable elvui skins you will get your screenshot. That's why the glues are intended for ElvUI since if you use ElvUI skins they should look fine
Nah Im not using ElvUI at all, I just like the way it makes the game itself look.
Well in your case the way to fix that would be to stop using the glues, as unfortunately the ones used in the dungeon finder are also used in the login screen

The process to remove them would make them be missing in the login screen instead, blizzard reuses a lot of assets and there isn't much that can be done
