About Grid2

What is Grid2 ?

Grid2 is a party/raid unit frame addon.

Grid2 is fully customizable. New zones (indicators) can be defined in unit frames to display information (statuses). The indicators can be customized and placed anywhere. Grid2 supports several types of indicators: icon, icons, square, text, bar, multibar. You can configure what statuses are displayed on each indicator.

Grid2 includes a huge amount of available statuses, but not all enabled be default, look through the configuration and familiarize yourself with the available options and statuses.

Grid2 is fast: consumes between 4 and 10 times less CPU cycles than other similar addons.

To open the configuration UI type "/grid2", left-click the minimap Icon, DataBroker icon launcher or use WoW addons list window.

Grid2 components

Grid2 package includes:

  • Grid2
  • Grid2 Options
  • Grid2 Raid Debuffs
  • Grid2 Raid Debuffs Options
  • Grid2 LDB
  • Grid2 Aoe Heals

Grid2 does not work or I think I found a bug

  • Update to the latest versions of Grid2.
  • Make sure you downloaded the mods WITH libs. nolib is not for you.
  • Reset your Saved Variables, pasting into chat: /script Grid2DB = nil; ReloadUI()
  • If you still get an error, go ahead and log it. Install and use the BugGrabber and BugSack mods to record the error and make it easy to cut and paste it.
  • Then, Post a ticket. Check for existing tickets about your bug first. Remember to check back on your ticket later in case we need more information.

Common issues/FAQ

Grid2 Doesn't Load after Update

If you are updating Grid2 from r560 or older version, you must reset your saved variables (you will lose all your settings), you must see a message in chat window explaining how to reset saved variables.

Raid debuffs not showing up !!!:

Raid debuffs are not enabled by default. Go to statuses -> Raid Debuffs and enable at least the Cataclysm module (if you are inside a instance you must exit and enter the instance or reload the UI after enabling the module)

I cant push the grid boxes as close together as before:

The border indicator has 2 pixels size and it has a transparent background color now. If you want the old grid2 appearance. Goto Indicators -> border -> Layout tab: Set a border size 1. And select a black and opaque background color for the border.

What about mana bars ?

Grid2 supports mana bars, but they are not created by default. If you want mana bars, create a new indicator of type "bar", place it wherever you want and map the "mana" or the "power" status to it (remember you must map some color status to the bar:color indicator too).

What is the poweralt status ?

Poweralt status is a power type (like mana/rage/energy,etc). This power type is enabled by Wow in some combats. It shows: Atremedes sound, Chog'al corruption, etc. This status is not active by default in Grid2: you must map poweralt to any compatible indicator (text or bar indicator).

Summary of changes from latest release:

- New layout selection options, including the possibility to define custom frame sizes.
- Hellfire Citadel Raid Debuffs
- HFC Tyran Velhari Encounter: Aura of Contempt Max Health Fix (Goto Statuses>Health&Heals>Right Panel to enable this fix)
- Several Bug Fixes

    The only way I can seem to bring the options up now is by typing '/grid2 options' and all many of the option names are in German.
  • #252
    There are three ways this can happen:
    1) You are using the German (deDE) client. German is not fully translated so only some things will be in German.

    2) You are using some other language that is not fully translated. Perhaps I copied and pasted some German into it as a template for translators.

    3) ACE3 Locale has code to let it fake being in some locale. You are faking being a German client.

    So let us find out what is going on. Type this into chat "/script print(GetLocale())"

    What locale does it print? This is the actual locale the client uses.

    Next type in "/script print(GAME_LOCALE)". This tells us if for some reason someone is trying to fake a different locale. It ought to be nil.

    Now ask yourself: "Am I German?". "Did I buy the German version of WoW?". If yes, then it sounds like your English is good enough for you to translate some of the deDE files!

    Is there any way to hide Grid2? Grid had a "/grid standby" command, but I can't find anything similar.
  • #421
    You can use a mod called 'loadit' so that you can disable the mod from within game and use /reload ui in order to load the new list of mods, without Grid2 in this case.
  • #253
    No. Just log out, disable it, log back in.
  • #244
    same, just use build 337 for now.
  • #235
    I am having problems to get grid2 working as well. I cannot get the grid show up, and options dialog is empty. Any ideas how to get this addon working please?
  • #236
    Seconded. Grid2 doesn't work at all and typing /grid2 to bring up the options displays and empty window =S
  • #237
    To open Grid2 config, you need to type /grid2 options (load on demand config). Had the same problem with the update, but everything seems to work correctly, whereas positionning was lost...
  • #250
    In red above: "Update to the latest versions of Grid2 and the plugins listed below that you use."

    You did not do this. Grid2StatusAFK for example is from september 2009. That is rather old and incompatible.
  • #232
    Hi there, is Grid 2 related to Grid ? Both versions still in use ?
  • #249
    Yes, Grid2 is a rewrite of Grid. You can find the differences in the "What is Different" section in the description. Grid2 is not done yet so in most cases you should use Grid. If you load up Grid2 and it mostly does what you need then the reset from scratch you will need to do from time to time will not be too big a burden.
  • #239
    Its a rewrite of it apparently. Does not have the same Authors as Grid, would recommend to just use Grid.
  • #219
    Is it possible to hide raid pets in Grid? If so, how is this done?
  • #228
    Do not pick a layout that says "with Pets"
