Grid2 main

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).

    @Ifirnja: Go

    Raid debuffs module is available in v757, Debuffs status is an alternative not a replacement.

    Are there no WOD Raiddebuffs available (v 757)?

    @j3rem1e: Go

    Unfortunately this issue cannot be fixed, the only solution is to create a standard layout using the layout editor (by group 10, etc). The game does not allow to change the layout design in combat (add, remove, resize groups, etc), so the code has to make "space" for all posible new players: 4 groups for mythic, 6 groups for flexible,etc.

    Thanks for your update !

    two remarks, with version r746 : - when i use the layout "group with pet", grid2 take a lot of space : the layout create a row for each group, even if the group is empty. - maybe you should consider a "release" quality version : there is a lot of interesting/important stuff in the latest alpha version (like raid debuff or flex layout)

    thanks again!

    Thanks michaelspain for fixing stuff and making new features, feels like it's christmas again.

    Only thing that I miss for current tier raiding is the shadow absorb bar for Koragh. If possible, have option for it to grow from the top/right side of the bar, to be able to use it combined with other absorbs bar.

    Thanks again for the work you put into this, really appreciate it.

    Fixed in r743.

    r742. I cannot use a layout I created in the editor in raid. It is shown in non-raid dropdowns only. PS. Health bar is ok for all 3 health update settings.

    Facing some major issues with the health bars not updating correctly - this has been reported HERE as well. Anyone else facing this issue and know a potential workaround?

    I would very much like to be able to size the frames much larger (horizontally) than is currently allowed. For a 5-man party, I'd like the frames to be about 220-250 wide. Is there some technical issue that prevents this?
