Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.7.1653
by: Phanx, Greltok, Pastamancer
Grid is a compact and highly configurable party/raid unit frame addon.

Please do not use the Bug/Feature buttons to the right, or send me PMs asking for help, reporting bugs, or requesting features. Use the links below instead!

The compact grid of units lets you select a group member quickly, while keeping a good overview of the whole group. It shows as much information as possible without overloading you. It allows you to customize what information you see, and how you see it. It works in both party and raid groups, and supports pets and vehicles.

Want more features? The Grid core tries to include only features which are generally useful for all classes and roles, but makes it easy to add new features with a simple plugin API for developers. Over 75 third-party plugins are already available!

Type “/grid” for options, or right-click the minimap button, DataBroker launcher, or Grid frame tab.

IMPORTANT: If you are using any version of Grid other than the one posted on this page — such as an alpha version from WowAce — please do not post on this page about any problems you encounter with it. Alpha versions are development snapshots, are not officially supported, and may be buggy or broken, delete your settings, or crash your game. The release (and sometimes beta) versions posted to WoWInterface.com and Curse.com are actually tested.

Submit a bug report to let us know about the problem so we can fix it!

✤ Problem with a plugin?
Contact the plugin’s author for help. The Grid team cannot provide support for third-party plugins.

Credits

Grid was originally conceived and written by Maia and Pastamancer in late 2006. Phanx has been the primary developer since late 2009. Jerry wrote the original pet support code.

Ok

Since you're answering quick, is there a way to sort 40man BGs/raids by class?

Thanks.

Not by default, but you could easily change the "25 by Class" layout to support 40 players; just open GridLayoutLayouts.lua, find the layout (it's near the bottom) and add groups 6, 7, and 8 to the groupFilter, and change the maxColumns to 8. You could also copy/paste it before making the changes, to make a separate 40-man layout if you wanted to keep the 25-man layout.

Every battleground I've ever been in that's organized at all divides people up by groups ("group 1 go here, group 5 go there, etc") and not by class ("druids go here, shamans go there"), so having the 40-man layout sorted by group makes more sense, since people in your group will generally be near you, while people of the same class may be on opposite ends of the map.

Frame lockup

Well im having the same problem with grid locking up for a 0.5seconds when someone joins/leaves the raid or a pet gets added etc.

Tried nuking the config files, running it with just grid, removing wtf, nothing seems to work.


Either way, if you want someone to try and whack a mole with drop me a PM.

I have been having an issue similar to posters prior. Grid is causing a graphics stutter when a player leaves or joins the raid group. It also seems to occur when a player changes state from ghost/dead/alive. A good example to easily reproduce is when a wipe occurs and players are zoning back into the instance to recover.
Across two hardware platforms C2D -> i7930 8800gt -> 460GTX
Multiple Grid config wipes

The only fix is for me to /grid standby. This stutter cropped up for me after 3.3.5 was deployed to live.

Yeah, as I've said before, neither myself nor either of the people who live with me who play WoW have ever seen this happen, and we've all been playing and raiding on a regular basis for the last 5 years. So, unfortunately there is no way to "easily reproduce" the issue by people who aren't experiencing it, and unless you're going to send me your machine or buy me a clone of your machine, posting your hardware specs doesn't really help either.

  • Fixed a bug causing black frames when range checking was enabled for the Unit Health status.

I'll try to put in some time investigating the freezing on group changes in the next week or so.

I understand. Just wanted to point out it wasn't likely to do with hardware. I commented the same function linked in the ticket below, ran a couple of BGs and did not notice the stuttering. I have asked around and cannot find anyone personally or in game that has the same experience either. I am going to look into it more this weekend but thanks for noting the problem.

Grid Border

Hello, Is there a way to hide the 1px border/background (as shown here http://s.wowinterface.com/preview/pvw34010.jpg) or resize it so it won't show unless the health bar depletes? It's causing some problems for me right now and I can't have it shown at all. I've found no immediate way to do this so any sort of fix will do if it's possible!

Thanks.

You would need to edit the addon's code yourself. That gap between the health bar and the border has been there since the addon was written nearly four years ago, and I have no plans to remove it or add any options relating to it.

What kind of problems is this causing for you? o_O

It's not actually the addon itself, it's something to do with my hardware (I think) and multisampling. Sometimes when there are overlapping textures or edges that aren't pixel perfect, the pixels on the edge will flash. It's like fuzzy border syndrome on crack with disco lights or something.

http://i26.tinypic.com/2uot8j4.jpg That's what happens, using PitBull to demonstrate.

Anyways, could you point me in the right direction? Not too sure where to start with this although I have a feeling it may have something to do with the white16x16.tga

Edit: Resized the .tga and now it appears to be fine! Will test this for a while.

I have the exact same issue as Atre. I also only noticed it since a recent patch. Pretty sure it started happening at the same time blizzard's patch was causing memory requests greater than 4gig.

GTX 285 (driver 8.17.11.9713 dated 3/15/10)
Core2 Duo E8500
Win7 x64

I play with 24x24 bit color w/ 1x multisampling no shadows and everything else at max.

It's a pretty horrible bug when trying to play WG, but otherwise just annoying.

Please stop posting your hardware specs, video settings, etc, unless you are going to pack up your machine and mail it to me.

I've been using Grid for the last four years. In that time, I have, on numerous characters, joined raid groups, left raid groups, been in raid groups when other people joined or left or were moved between subgroups, been in raids and battlegrounds of all sizes from 10-man to 40-man, been in Wintergrasp, been in 40-man world PvP raids, used OpenGL mode, used DirectX mode, played in fullscreen mode, played in windowed mode, played in maximized windowed mode, and played with probably hundreds of unique combinations of video settings, and I have never once experienced any kind of freeze or frame lag caused by raid group changes.

Plus, all of you guys posting hardware specs have different hardware, and most of you have better hardware than I do, which suggests to me that the issue is not hardware-related. However, if it is a hardware issue, then there is probably nothing I can do to fix it, as addons have no access to or even awareness of your hardware.

If you are a programmer and can look through the code and offer meaningful suggestions on which code paths may be causing the problem, feel free to post. Otherwise, I am aware that there is an issue, and would much rather not keep getting comment notification emails for useless reposts of the same information that doesn't help in the slightest.

Any further comments posted on this page about this issue (especially useless ones) will be deleted. If you are interested in this issue, I suggest you subscribe to the ticket on wowace.com. If you have useful information to add, post a comment on the ticket:

how to set my own name inside grids frame?

I used vuhdo in the past and got use to having my own name in the vuhdo frames. But in grid, I looked all over the config settings and could not find any option to show my own name in grid frames so I can heal myself when Im in a raid or party. When Im solo, my name does appear though.
