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).

    what i mean is that on my druid with the default setting (show my hots), it will show the incoming hots on various people i cast them on.
  • #195
    I will explain my problem better here and what i have done to solve this, without succes

    My grid is working when it shows all hots that are on the target. The problem comes when i sellect 'only show when cast by me' or when i use a gridstatushots(what also only show hots cast on me). It will show hots cast on me instead of cast by me. I have the same problem when i use grid2 or healbot.

    have done to solve the problem, without succes
    1. Used differend versions of grid, grid2 and healbot.
    2. I have the same problem with healbot Deleting cach, WTF, logs, all other addons, screenshots, ect.
    3. after the blizzard repair the problem was stil there.
  • #214
    heh, not to be a dick or anything, but i just cant resist this one :3
    if you turn on "show hots cast ON me" then ofc you'll get "hots cast ON you" shown and not "hots cast BY me" :3

    sometimes i just amaze myself by my sixth sense of problem solving

    I've been faithfully using Grid2 for a while now. In fact Grid2+Clique has made healing about a hundred times easier for me. Until now.

    Now, it seems a lot of times, when I get into a raid or (REALLY bad) an arena game, it locks up on me and completely crashes WoW. This bug has caused me to lose at least 20 games so far. I've had it. I'm sorry, but until this is fixed, I'm going to have to learn how to either use regular Grid or Healbot or Vuhdo or something. Unfortunate, as this was my staple addon.

    And yes, I've disable everything except Grid2. It's still doing it.
  • #197
    This was fixed a while ago. Are you following the instructions above to get the latest alpha versions?
  • #180
    Hi is there any "quickhealth" or "instanthealth" addon working with grid2 ?

    without its useless for me as healer.. :/
  • #198
    Both "quickhealth" or "instanthealth" are abandoned apps. They just cannot be that critical. I heal icc hard modes without them on a resto druid.
  • #177

    I'm experiencing the same "freezing" problem. I tried to disable Grid2Alert, it seems to work better. Waiting for a fix ;)
  • #199
    This was fixed a while ago. Are you following the instructions above to get the latest alpha versions? If you do you would also know not to get the experimental plugins.
  • #175
    Running in to a lot of problems with the latest build, possibly alpha. Makes me sad.
  • #169
    Is there no way to have the health bars decrease right-to-left as of now? And no way to indicate missing HP with text?
  • #200
  • #168
    I'm experiencing a freezing problem when i leave a raid/party group.. Just a couple of time every day; I'm quite sure it's Grid2 beacause I tried to disable it for 2 days and the problem stops.. It seems to have some problems switching from a raid grid group to single player grid.. Hope it can help.. A friend of mine with grid2 is experiencing the same problem and the only thing is to kill Wow and restart it.
    Grid2 seems very good and I hope you can fix it asap. Thanks for this addon :)
  • #163
    I don't know if it's just the current Grid2 version or if it is all version but it causes freezes when entering and exiting arena.

    I struggled for ages working out what was causing it and it turns out it's this addon. Please fix it! :-( I love Grid2 but I've had to uninstall it due to this issue!
