    Thanks for the reply.  I checked again, and found that the color options in settings only allow you to change the color of the actual background for the buttons, not the anchor.

    I'm talking about the color of the anchor, which either used to be transparent by default, or we used to be able to change the color.  I do not remember which.

    Here's my example:

    MBF never used to collect the default wow minimap icons just the addon ones.

    It used to leave mail / zoom and dungeon eye on the minimap but now its collecting everything and I dont know how to stop it from doing the default blizzard minimap icons.

  • #1250

    In the MBF interface settings under Gathering, untick "Collect Buttons". I think that puts the blizzard buttons back on the minimap.

    lol I must be tired, im going off to bed hahaha.


    Thanks mate.

    3.1.9 is uploaded just waiting for approval.  If there are any other issues please let me know so I can fix them.

    martinboy - I know you're still having an issue.  But I can't reproduce it atm.  Let me know what addons you have installed so I can try and recreate your environment.

    I've also heard that ElvUI doesn't work with it and I'm looking into it.

    I never had the problem before patch. The problematic buttons in my case,  are Atlasloot, Bartender4, Bigwigs, Skada, Professionsvault and Bugsack. It happends very random. Sometimes the black layer is gone when logging in, sometimes not.

    I use Shadowed Unit Frames for the UI.

    I found out, that if I via MBF display - buttonskin choose another skin, then all buttons turn visible again, but as soon as I reload UI, the black icons return.

    Just an update.  I will hopefully have an updated version out tonight or tomorrow.  Just fixing another little bug I noticed while playing around.

    Will this be fixed too?

  • #1244

    That was a bug from an older version that was fixed.  If it's doing it again I'd have to know what buttons are not displaying correctly.

    You can also type in "/mbf remove" while your mouse is over the button.

    This is currently stealing the Blizzard Queueing Interface for LFR/LFR/PVP map button from the minimap and has no option to place it back.  Please add one or let us know how to manually set it as an exception.

  • #1237

    This does not work with Elvui. 

  • #1252

    I've tested it with ElvUI and it seems to work just fine.  I'm not sure what the problem you're having with it is.
