1. What I really ask for is a feature that sound like this:
- set up a maximum frame width, example:80
- set up a maximum total frame space used: let's say 200. This means that if I am in a party /5 players setup without pets the total width of all frames will be 80 = the maximum size of the frame. If I change to 25 ppl and I get 5 columns with palyers wishout pets, means that addon will calculate 200/5 = 40 and will adjust my player frame size to 40 - or even much better will include in the calculation the space between frames. (200 - (number or columns*space between columns) )/5.
The actual benefit from this will be that all I will never ever have to change anything again when the number of players change, as Grid will calculate automatically the player frame size for me, making it ocupy the same amount of total space on screen.
(When I read the idea again I realize that I am doing it wrong trying to sugest a solution for the problem, and not asking for a fix. Let me reformulate: Please add a feature such that wherever I go in 5 players party/10 pl/25 pl/40 pl my grid will know to adjust things such way that will ocupy the same amount of space on the screen, and I won't have to ever enter the menu again to readjust the layout.)
2. I tryed to remove "Offline" from the "Health Bar Color" indicatorbut still the same result.
3. Sorry for that, didn't know it is a third party addon, I'll keep that in mind.
All other problems I will try to see after I get GridLayoutPlus working properly(I will post in his thread).

Jan 30, 2009Thank You for the info. I will stick to slacking in BG while reconfigurating, and hope that I will never again lose my settings from WTF folder.Posted in: Grid & Grid2
For solving the auto resize / arrange problem wich is the best addon :
GridAutoFrameSize or GridLayoutPlus?
Jan 30, 2009Hi, just installed latest version of grid and I found some things that would be great to have them in future versions (at least that is the way I believe it is :p )Posted in: Grid & Grid2
1. to the raid layout please add the posibility to select different layouts for raid-normal and raid-heroic setup. Also alow for every of those layouts a different size of frame width. Or if is possible to make a maximum length for grid, and no matter how many lines you have, grid will resize himself the frame width so total width of grid will not exceed a given maximum width.
2. not sure if is a bug or not, but when I have a player "offline" and I use center text 2 for showing the text "offline" the entire frame will change to the color of the text "offline"
With "dead" and "ghost" everything works ok, but not with "offline".
3. Is there any posibility to make for mana bars to select a different color for the deficit of mana/rage/energy/runic power? As both my health deficit and mana deficit from gridmanabars are both black, is a bit anoying to always estimate the health deficit visualy talking.(espefcialy for rage users and runic power users).
4. Is there any way to select wich pets I want to see in grid and wich I don't want to see? I would really like to hide locks pets as sometimes there are more then 5 pets in 25 ppl raids, and grid will auto extend to show all the pets.
Also, is there any posibility to select a different maximum width for pets? As I don;t like that pets use the same amount of frame width as players.
5. Can you add any option to auto fill all frames with random data, for easy configurating grid?
Hope I gave some useful ideas, and I am sorry if this already been said, but don't have the time to read so many pages(though grid is my favorite addon as a healer).
And I have one question: what idea can you give me to show on grid Sacred shield and Beacon of light time left? I would really like to see them such way that I know how much time is left. At the moment, I use right bottom corner for Sacred shield (just an orange dot the is on or off) and Middle Icon for Beacon of light. I can show middle icon with cooldown but there is no option for me with sacred shield, unless there could be something like manabars addon, that could be used for sacred shield/beacon of light. Any advice I can receive?
Oct 24, 2008Can you add pls some kind of way to announce on raid chat what buffs/elixirs/buff food are missing? Or how about to change the selection way when mouse is over the buffs list so that you can select an entire column with let's say elixirs and when you "some key"+click that column it will announce on raid chat all ppl that are missing that buff. Or anyway somehow to easy announce some particular buffs/etc missing or to announce everything is missing from the entire raid. Or cut out of the announcement all the buffs that are impossible for ppl to give.Posted in: General AddOns
I realy like this addon and the speed I can check everything, but would be nice to have a way to announce also what is missing.
Oct 7, 2008true, so the solution to this problem is to make somehow distract their attention.Posted in: AddOn HELP!
And this can be done using DBM maybe (don't know how, was just an idea), or any kind of chat message that all can see, and react to. (colored somehow- purple is best in my opinion, also sounds ca do that).
Oct 7, 2008ppl do not react to /guild messages, and if I have to say anything important, not everyone pays attention. Even myself, don't read guild chat all day, but I do react to the purple color of a whisper when I get one.Posted in: AddOn HELP!
Don't know how blizzard handles it, but anyway I won't say anything except something like this: "pls watch guild chat, I have an announcement to make".
Ofc we can use forum, but things like "get ready for invite", or "what do you think about a fast zul'aman run" and many other would be much nicer to be able to do it ingame.
Oct 7, 2008I would realy like some addon that I can mass whisper to my entire guild some text, but only officers/gm should be able to use it.Posted in: AddOn HELP!
Sometimes is useful this thing. Especialy when I am trying to make an ingame announcement. Is there anything like this?
Sep 23, 2008I am having the same problem.Posted in: AddOn HELP!
I installed WOWAce updater as I had too many wowace addons but don't know what did this with my Xperl after installing addons, as I can;t start it anymore now. I also get 1 error about Atlasloot, I will have to disable atlasloot to see if there is any problem about them.
Sep 19, 2008I know I see the remaining time there, but I need to see the icon with the rolling thing around her, so that I notice fast that someone has missing buffs. It doesn't work for me now, I will see what I have to enable in the menu. Only thing I get announced for the moment is righteous fury and auras. I will check options menu with more attention.Posted in: General AddOns
Sep 19, 2008Tested in raid last night, all was ok, but had few problems.Posted in: General AddOns
1. I don't know why in pally power when I look I don't see the exceptions that I sended to other players, only the greater buffs. I understood that I can't see my buffs as my pallypower functionality is disabled, but I would like to see the smaller buffs of the other players in pally power.
2. Stil had a player that needs fixed lenght of the line when I mouseover the icon. Is like there is a bug in the name of player, as was it's name that was not displayed.
3. Can you please tell me where can I activate the addon to announce me that someone is without buffs, or that some buff is almost finished? (this one is just a question, as I'm too blind to find that option)
Sep 18, 2008I noticed now that is not a difference between the players that have greater blessings and the ones with normal. But mouseover them will display the tooltip wich states if the blessing is greater or normal.Posted in: General AddOns
Only thing I would like is to have that icon smaller in the columns or something so that I can know from the start that a player needs greater or normal blessing without looking in the tooltip.
If I could see that from the start I will pick directly the greater blessing players and after that I will pick the remaining blessings withut loosing any time. Also a number on the icon wich states the lowest time remaining of any blessing would be nice. It is true that I can buff clicking on the icon, but I prefer to pick from the list only the ones that have a small time remaining.
About the flask thing, I didn't know that the player I am checking has to use a flask first, so that the addon learns the particular flask/elixir and knows later if the player has it or not.
Lines width fixed - works nice now.
I use both pally power and zomgbuffs for the testing purposes. What is strange is that I don't receive data from zomgbuffs in pally power, only the other players do receive it. I understood that you disabled the functionality for the ones that have Zomgbuffs. I would like to know the reason for it, just curious.
Now I'm searching only for a way to be announced that some blessings are missing, as in pally power I was looking to see if any icon is red, the upper buton has front numbers in it. (I do admit I always have a thing with the options and never find the options to toggle anything :p)
Sep 17, 2008Sorry I didn't notice any difference between the players that have to be buffed with greater and the ones have to be buffed with normal blessings.Posted in: General AddOns
About the flask thing, I don't have the highlighted small icon displayed, when i have no buff on me, but I do have it for buff food.
Glad you fixed the width of the lines.
For the click to buff thing i checked alot, but need to search some more in the options.
The thing about the blessings priority should be put from the start in my opinion, and even if you try to modify in the midle of the instace run, priorities should be respected.
To be honest, is not the entire list modifying, is only one class buffings and 2 paladins only have to recast. I believe that is not that much modified. (in the case when a dps becomes tank)
Also I will try to install that pally power sender, just don't know where to get it from.
Sep 17, 2008I did alot of testing last night and I came to the following conclusions:Posted in: General AddOns
1.I found flask/buff food, but It doesn't show correctly the flask/elixir (elixirs are missing? or is a code that joins flasks/elixirs?)
2.The second thing I found out is that I wasn't able to click to cast on the icon anymore, and I had to cast greater blessings on everyone by right clicking on the player line for greater blessings, and alt+rightclick for lower blessings. But this is not so nice, as I can't see on the line of the player if he needs a normal blessing or not, and I have to recast it in the moment I give another player a greater blessing. Sorting the lines by the type of blessing needed, greater or normal would be nice. In pally power is easyer, because i left click until all greater are given, and after that I right click to cast all the lower blessings. Now is not working for me automatic casting and I don't know why. Can you mark in the players lines what kind of buff that player needs? (i mean greater or normal blessing so I can cast first all greater blessings and after that all normal blessings - sorting the list by greater/normal blessings would be great)
3.I don't know why lines of the players are not arranged correctly, and they have different length, wich makes it much harder to see what's missing.
4.Also, the way the addon choses wich blessings should be greater and wich should be normal is not realy correct.
I give you an example.
With 2 paladins healers, the normal blessings are:
pala1 gives greater salvation
pala2 gives greater wisdom
If I change one of them and put it as tank, I get the folowing setup.
Pala1(the tank) gives greater salvation and lower light on himself.
Pala2(the healer) gives greater wisdom and lower kings on tank.
I think is wrong this setup, because the tank should have greater Kings and lower light, but the healer should have greater salvation and lower wisdom. As I have the first priority set to Kings for tanks and Salvation for healers, I believe that the greater blessing should be the ones that are the first priority. If we have a case where druids let's say have 3 different blessings that are the first priority, and we have only 2 paladins, means we can give only 2 greater blessings on them so we have to chose wich of the greater blessings are more important, and give normal blessings for the players that don't have such a big priority. Anyway tank has the first priority, healers second priority, casters 3rd priority.
This means the kings on tank will be first, salvation on casters will be second, and let;s say a caster with wisdom as his first priority will receive in this case a normal blessing.
I know I explain realy hard, and I understand harder :p but I think I am right about this.
About the sorting of blessings thing you were right. I didn't notice that you sort blessings not only by priorities, and you put blessings so that most blessings of one type should be given by a player.
I can force everyone in guild to change to zomgbuffs, if needed for blessings, but I need firt the easy to cast functionality and the litle things that I said before to be fixed.
Sep 16, 2008Anyway I have to get home to test it. As if I want to change salvation to wisdom let's say, I have to see if it will change the one that was assign to do salvation, and change mine to other in priority list, or I will have to check who was automatically assigned to salvation and whisper himt o change it to other buff. I have to test it. Anyway in second case, is dezastrously to go in menu and check who had to do salvation and whisper him to change.Posted in: General AddOns
Sep 16, 2008Both your way and my way tries to assign might and wisdom to ppl who have it improved. With your way of sorting paladins in the priority list, you try to put the improved might paladin (if is only one) to buff up the line wich has more might blessings.Posted in: General AddOns
But like this you can't be sure that everyone in raid will have improved blessings.
For my idea, knowing the priority of the buffings, is only one case where I can't assign improved blessings for everyone.
And that case is when I don't have enough paladins to assign a different one for might and wisdom, and the paladin assigned have only might or wisdom improved. So in this case would be better with your addon, as I will have to make this paladin cast might that he has imroved, and light let's say, and other paladin that has to cast wisdom and light. (or kings instead of light if i don;t have 4 paladins).
About the pugs you mentioned (that sometimes we inite to raid), can you tell me please how to assign the buffs for them if they don;t have zomgbuffs installed?
