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.

  • Reset your Saved Variables, pasting into chat: /script Grid2DB = nil; ReloadUI()

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).

    My frames keeps wandering, its set to a 25 man frame, if there are more ppl in the raid, the frame pushes upwards even when i enter instance, where it usually should go into 25 man layout and when i leave the raid, my frames are still not reset

  • #590

    Grid2 load de 40man layout if more than 25 people are in raid and you are outside the instance.
    Open general options and adjust the layout anchor and/or group anchor..

  • #591

    That´s what i´ve done, repeatedly. but everytime we wipe, and go outside, it switches to 40 man layout and it doesn´t switch back to 25 man layout upon entering the instance again

  • #584

    Grid2 by default tracks Inner fire on priests, but how can I track Inner Will instead? I've tried adding using the options... but no success (I know i can edit the addon code but... i don't think it is the proper way)

  • #585

    Adding a buff called Inner Will, from statuses -> Buffs

  • #586

    Thanks, it is now working, the problem was i typed Inner Will, but my game is in spanish (so it's 'Voluntad interna') Wink

  • #582

    OK I figured it out with the Class colours, but what um not able to get is the Mana Bar on the botton, I did what it shows in the one picture, but there is no mana bar to see, please help

  • #583

    1. Create a indicator of type "bar" , configure the size and position of the bar (Layout Tab)
    2. Goto "statuses" tab, and add the "Power" status.
    3. Goto "colors" tab and add the "Power"status.

  • #581

    Hi, just wondering how do I get in Grid2 the Class Colors to look like the colors as shown in the picture at the top of the page here? I just cant seem to figure it out.

  • #575

    The newest version has no color option for the border indicator, so it does not work

  • #576

    Border options have not been changed,  its working fine for me.

    The blizzard and other border textures usually have a large size of 20 pixels, so if you want to use another texture, you must increase de border size.  Then you must change the cells width and height  or set a negative value for the "border distance"  to increase the cell content area too. For example, to use blizzard dialog texture:
    Texture: Blizzard dialog.
    Border size: 20
    Border distance: -15
    Background color: white full opaque.

    You did not understand me. I don't want the border to show who has the dungeon role "tank". I want to assign the indicator threat to the border.

    But I found the reason. It's the texture of the border. Only "glow" and "Grid2 Flat" work. All the others can not change color.

  • #578

    No version of Grid2  have a  -color entry for border indicator, only text and bar indicators had two entries  (because they displays two pieces of information  a text/bar and a color for the text/bar) The border and square indicators only have a statuses tab driving the color of the indicator ( the Statuses tab is the Colors Tab for this indicators).

    For the border, you have:

    Border Statuses Tab:
    Map the dungeon-role and role statuses  (if you want to highlight/colorize tanks in dungeons and raids)
    Border Layout Tab:
    Here you can configure the size/separation and background border color (its transparent be default).
    General Tab
    Inner border color: This is the color of the inner border (its a different border than the border indicator).  If you dont want a inner border, you can set a 0 separation and a black background border (from the border indicator Layout Tab)

    * Maybe its not a problem with the border indicator but the dungeon-role/role statuses  (broken with the new patch maybe i will check this).
    * Tested dungeon-role status mapped to border indicator and its working fine for me.

    There have always two entries per indicator in the indicator list. One for the indicator itself, one for the color. Now there is one indicator with a tab for the color in its settings. But the border has no color tab.

    I always had a red border around the tanking player. In the newest version that doesn't work anymore. The border stays black no matter what statuses I assign to it.

    What am I doing wrong?
