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 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).

    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?
  • #547
    I am having issue with seeing Vital Spark and Vital flame showing up from the Baleroc encounter. I have enabled the debuffs and i see the torment and the tank debuff but no vital flame/spark. I have then added it to buffs and tried that way and it is still not showing up. Any help with the would be wonderful

  • #548
    Its a mistake, vital spark and vital flame must no exists in the raid debuffs list, because they are not Debuffs, they are Buffs.
    You can create the buffs in the Buffs list.
  • #546
    is there a way to adjust the font length, so long names can be displayed in the raid frames
  • #549
    Yes see the text indicator options (Indicator Layout tab)
  • #543
    , # as seperators, I can't seem to find out specifically how for certain or what they do? The tooltip gives an example of:

    Low Health

    Can you explain what this means exactly? It only checks for Low Health if it's applied by Chimaeron or something?
  • #544
    The prefix has not real use for the addon, its only descriptive.
    If you create a debuff called: "Chimareon@Low Health" Grid2 simply tracks "Low Health" debuff. But the full name is displayed in the debuffs list simply to remember that is the "Low Health" debuff of Chimaeron.
  • #545
    Alright, cheers.
  • #535
    How do I colour Icon Indicator Borders by the status colour? For example:

    I have an Icon Indicator set, and the status it shows is Debuff: Magic. I have a border set of 1, set as white with full alpha. Whenever I get a magic debuff, the icon is shown with a 1 pixel border around it coloured by the magic status, which is blue of course.

    Now, if I try and do the same for a buff or debuff I have set, such as Forbearance, the Colour for the status is set to red, but the border just appears as white.

    If I set the border to a colour with no alpha, or black, it just appears in those colours too - all I want is to colour the border in red for that debuff, but I apparently seem to be missing something.
