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).

Fixed possible infinite loop in minimapicon layouts menu.

    please tell me how to display the value of blood
  • #510
    Is it possible to turn off class colors for the frame backgrounds, and only leave it for the name text? I'd rather a black frame background with class colored names. I'm able to do this in Grid, but I can't figure out how in Grid2. Furthermore, if I want to use Name in the top text, it appears white, instead of my class color. The default bottom name text is my class color though. Is there a way to change that too?

    I appreciate any help.
  • #512
    All bar and text indicators in Grid2, have an associated :color indicator where you can map any color compatible status.
    colors o any other already created status).
    The same for text indicators.
  • #514
    Thank you. This really helped me get grid2 looking more like my grid layout.
  • #532
    Hi Spec, can you tell me how to turn off class colors for frame backgrounds in Grid1 (and keep it for names), because I simply cannot figure out how :(
  • #509
    maybe I totally overlooked this option, but is there a possibility to disable blizz raid frames entirely? other addons providing raidframes, like stuf and pitbull, have options for this. If this option isnt available in grid2, is it possible you could add it?
  • #511
    This option is not available in Grid2.
  • #508
    Right clicking on the Grid titan panel plugin in order to change layout crashes me every single time in a battleground.
  • #513
    Layouts cannot be changed in combat (it is a wow restriction cannot be fixed).
  • #505
    Couple problems I'm having with Grid2.
    The first is getting GuardianSpirit:mine to show up. I created it just like any other buff I created but it didn't work. I thought maybe I did it wrong so I been messing with it but I can't seem to delete some of the buff statuses I have, including the Guardian Spirit one that's not working.

    Also when using Clique with Grid2 everything works except the "Open Unit Menu" command. No matter what key I bind it to I can't open the unit menu off the Grid2 frames(but unit frames work fine). Not the end of the world if I can't do it but if there is a way to fix that it would be great.
  • #506
    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?
