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 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).

    A buff/debuff/status cannot be deleted if it is mapped to any indicator. Check all indicators and disable/unlink the buffs you want to delete.
    Grid2 frames have not unit menu.
  • #507
    Thanks for the quick and helpful response! I can't believe I didn't try removing the indicators.
  • #502
    Hello, im starting to work with grid2, but ive a problem..

    I have an indicator square and an indicator text. Both are working normally. Now I put the text-indicator over the square - Now I only see the square. Is it somehow possible to show me the text in front of the square, instead in the background?

  • #503
    Download latest alpha (r607). All indicators have a Frame Level option now. Higher framelevels are shown above lower framelevels.
  • #504
    Thank you! ;-)

    Hello, i am currently having the following problem: i cannot change the bar type (not the background one, that shows how damaged an unit is, but the one that shows the targets hp. It's always gradient and the black end is at the top. I never found an option for that.
    Is there such a feature?
    If you want i can put up a pick in case you did not understand what i mean.

    Been having trouble with my Grid2 layout in arenas.

    R): Player, Party1, Party2, Party3, etc.

    This made things very easy for me dispelling because I've got a row of macros, one for each party member.

    Now with Grid2 when I queue in it looks like this:

    Party1 and Party2 occasionally switch places, which means every match I need to hit my dispel buttons during the starting period to check which spot is which, and then I need to remember that for the rest of the match. It slows my dispels considerably.

    Also, I'm not sure why, but as you can see the pet frame is behaving as if there were a second row of players in the party. This happens in arenas regardless of whether or not I convert to raid ahead of time. Does not happen in 5-man dungeons.

    I'd appreciate any help.
  • #499
    Default order of most layouts in Grid2 is:
    This order was choosen long time ago. Try Grid2FreeLayout it have more choices.
  • #501
    Any thoughts on why the pet frame behaves as if there's another row of players there?
  • #493
    Is it possible to set Grid/Grid2 to where it doesnt sort the raid alphabetically. It's getting pretty irritating that it doesn't copy the actual raid layout...
  • #495
    Groups in raid can be sorted by index, alphabetical , with tanks / assistants first, by class , and not much more. See the different layouts.
    Grid2 cannot not sort the units directly (this part is protected by blizzard to avoid hacks and automatic playing), we can only define some rules, and protected blizzard code makes the job. Yes it is irritating that an addon cannot do de same thinks the blizzard compact raid frames can do, blame blizzard in that case.
    You can try Grid2FreeLayout, but has some limitations, if a unit/player is changed or replaced in combat for example, the raid will lost these units, raid units order/modifications can only be done out of combat.
  • #494
    Can anyone help me with this, please??
  • #492
    I've noticed that when healing in a 5 man, Grid2 never puts the party members in the same order as the Raid Style party frames. This really messes with my eyes.

    On top of that, I can't seem to figure out if there's a way to make incoming heals appear like they do on Grid - Numbers over the full box, not just the bar filling in. As a druid, the bar doesn't appear for HoTs.

    In short, can we reorder what position people are on in grid2? (My party frames show Tank - Healer - DPS - DPS - DPS. Grid2 does Tank - Me - Healer - DPS - DPS, or something similar). REALLY messes with my eyes seeing bars fall one spot, but a different bar dropping somewhere else).

    Also, can we change how incoming heals are displayed as text, rather than a green bar?
