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).

Fixed possible infinite loop in minimapicon layouts menu.

    Great work on the addon.  One question.  Is it possible to hide the Health deficit numbers?  I cannot find a way to do this.  I want them hidden because I'm not a healer.

  • #563

    Open Indicators List -> Click text-up indicator.  On right panel you will see the statuses linked to this indicator.  Uncheck health-deficit status.

  • #565

    Figured it out.  Thank you.  Much appreciated!

    Hi! First I'd like to say you've done great work on this addon. I was using classic Grid for a long time and had it tweaked like crazy.. then tried Vuhdo (and its good) but I decided I wanted to try Grid2 because how much I loved classic Grid. So far it's pretty solid and a lot of addons I had to use with Grid1 are already implemented into Grid2.

    That being said I have a request for raid debuffs or maybe I'm not doing something right. I'd like to setup a icon for raid debuffs (simple and done no problems there) and a text under it displaying elapsed time of the raid debuff. The problem is when I try to add raid debuffs to the text option it doesn't show up as a option.

    I could just copy the debuffs I wanted to see elasped time for manually but it'd be nice if there was a way I could have all raid debuffs showing elapsed time.

    In revision 625, raid debuffs are compatible with text indicators, it was a very simple change but not tested yet.

    I have a shaman and a druid druid was easy to set up hots to see on grid2 now trying to find out how to show my riptide. So if anyone can give me a hand where to find.
  • #558
    Riptide is displayed in upper left corner indicator by default, convert this indicator from type "square" to type "text" if you want to see the remaining time.

    heya, where in the lua i can disable the blink from the threatcorner ?! want to show it permanent :/
  • #553
    Goto "Misc" Tab, Set Blink Effect to "None"
  • #554
    no please, i want the blink effekt for my other corners - but for the threat i will disable it, can you say what line in the lua i can delete?
  • #555
    Replace Line 42:
    return "blink"
    With this:
    return true
  • #556
    thanks ! i delete this line but that was not right ^^ true !!! xD
  • #551
    Thanks for the help. I was able to see it now!
  • #550
    So then i would disable under raid debuffs, then add it to my buffs. Assign the buff to a icon and it should work then?
