NamePlate Background Opacity

Hello,

I changed my blizz nameplates like most of my UI with texture replacements but I cant change anything related to the nameplate-background this way.

Basically I want to lower the alpha/opacity of the nameplate health and its castbar background but without replacing the default nameplates.

I was searching for a code for similar changes but I couldn't find anything related.

If someone has an idea or code to share I would really appreciate it.

Blizz code: https://github.com/tomrus88/Blizzard....xml#L151-L154

I now use this code to change the background alpha/color for the nameplate health and castbar:

Code:
hooksecurefunc("CompactUnitFrame_UpdateHealthColor", function(frame)
	if not strfind(frame.unit, "nameplate") then return end
	frame.healthBar.background:SetAlpha(0.5)
	frame.healthBar.background:SetVertexColor(0,0,0)
	frame.castBar.background:SetAlpha(0.5)
	frame.castBar.background:SetVertexColor(0,0,0)
end)
