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 package includes:

  • Grid2

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).

    Oh yay, an update. It worked fine last night for raiding, but I'm sure it will be even better now.

    @iamslay: Go

    Manual type the desired width in the edit box below the slider.

  • Avatar of iamslay iamslay May 31, 2015 at 03:58 UTC - 0 likes

    Is there a way to increase the maximum width of the frames? For example, I'd like to set the maximum possible width to 200 instead of the default 100.

    Apologies if this was answered elsewhere, I haven't been able to find info pertaining to this.

    Thank you!

    Somehow my grid2 freezes when nothing is really happening and shows incoming heal even if there is no activity. Is it some kind of idleing ?

    I've started a guide on grid2 that might be useful for people.

    @alexfolland: Go

    As far as i know void tendrils is a buff not a debuff. Look for the debuff applied to the players when that spell is used.

    I have almost all the other CC debuffs added and they appear in the CC icon indicator I've made, but Void Tendrils does not seem to work. Why is that? Being unable to see Void Tendrils in my frames makes it more difficult to time Windwalk Totem properly.

    @unlvsur: Go

    Frankly, adding this kind of formula in the code adds a lot of maintenance work, the code must be reviewed and maybe changed on every patch or class hotfix.

    As far as i know non roles in BGs was a blizzard decision/bug, this info is not available in a BG.

    Why not let Grid2AoeHeals to calculate the healthDeficit directly by player's SpellPower? And use a predictFactor. So healthDeficit=healthDeficitfunc()*predictFactor

    I modify it by my self, It should be like that:

    Grid2:DbSetStatusDefaultValue( "aoe-CircleOfHealing", { type = "aoe-CircleOfHealing", hideOnCooldown = true , minPlayers = 5, maxSolutions = 1, radius = 30, keepPrevHeals = true,predictFactor = 0.8,mapErrorFactor=0.95,healthDeficitfunc= function() return (2.43836289654175*GetSpellBonusHealing()+56.0346337264364)* (1 + GetCombatRatingBonus(CR_VERSATILITY_DAMAGE_DONE)/100) end,color1 = {r=0, g=1, b=0, a=1}, } )

    And Monk Zen Sphere should be added to AoeHealsStatusRaid.lua

    And hope fix role not displayed bug in BG.
