    I am not totally sure what you mean by this. Do you mean multiple thresholds? So for instance Blue below 30% Light Blue below 50%. Or binary as in only on for certain classes?

    The list looks good to me as a generic basis for all healers. The only thing I would prioritize higher would be target since it is not optional for me. I use target then cast instead of clique. Also specifically for trees my hots would be split out along with a status for swiftmendable.

    Well, those mana thresholds you mention are ok, but I think Phanx means that she'd like to be able to set a threshold when this indicator becomes visible. eg. Below 40% MP then show that indicator, while some may want it to show up at 50% etc. :)

    I would like to add to the default healer setup :
    - Set the health deficit to show faster, most healers don't quite care about names as much as they do on missing health :)

    Just out of interest what resolution do you run at? Does lowering your resolution to a low one e.g 1024x768 increase your FPS?

    I run at the native resolution of my screen, 1280*1024 (17inch LCD).

    I do have to say, I've tested with this last version of DynPerf, and my fps seemed better >.< (Could it be that me setting the zoomout to bigger caused issues?)

    Edit : Of course, that improvement was before I went to Northrend :(

    Your video card is letting your system down, I run the following spec

    3GHz Core 2 Duo
    4GB RAM
    ATI 4870

    With full maxed settings other than shadows which are a notch right ( because shadows seem to destroy framerates past that first notch no matter your hardware) I get over 50-150 FPS in Outland/Northrend and only drop to around 30 FPS in Dalaran when it's busy, that's also with 8x AA.

    My CPU isn't massivly faster than yours, but your Video card isn't that great really.

    Thank you :) I shall look into a different Gfx card, however I am bound to nVidia (unless someone - and please do - can tell me if ATi + Linux are working better than a year or 3 ago, I had issues with my ATi cards getting seen decently.)

    I seem to remember PTR having a checkbox for ground effects and no longer having a slider for spell detail. I could be mistaken though. What sucks is you can't see stuff like consecrate AT ALL with the checkbox disabled, so I don't see how it would be useful except in the worst of cases.
    Oh god, I pray you mean a previous PTR, but fear THIS ptr :(

    All this homework sux.

    With that I agree.
    Quote from Azethoth
    But not infallible like the pope so this does not help us decide.

    Yes, this got a quote from me. You say Phanx is not infallible, no one is. No ones views are better than anyone elses (unless your name is some genocidal dude who shall not be named or some serial killer psychopath, the views of those suck.), we are human and we have the right to voice our opinions.
    Quote from Azethoth

    The only valid reason I see for continuing it in Grid2 is that thats the way it was done in Grid and people are used to it. This is a valid but weak reason. It makes it easy for Grid users that will need to customize their settings to switch over to Grid2 but who also insist on only configuring their UI via properties and not the GUI. It is irrelevant for users who will make no changes to the indicator defaults provided, or use the provided GUI to edit them.

    So people who use the GUI are important to be heard, others are not? (That's how this does read imho.)
    Quote from Azethoth
    The downside is as I mentioned before. It just completely blocks particular high level config scenarios. And for what? To slightly speed up the config time of people who are using the slowest and least intuitive config method in Grid2? It just does not make sense. What was required and useful in Grid (naming by type-location) is just not important anymore. What is important now is the content of the indicator.

    While to you, and others, this may not be important, to others it is. Phanx and myself being two of them. I don't see the intuitiveness in relocating "aggro" to topleft, and having "topleft" be shown on some other location. This is where confusion sets in.

    Let the locations be the name, where we can check stati to be shown there. I honestly feel this will be less confusing for quite a few people and can increase productivity.

    Quote from Azethoth
    Jerry has made it faster and stronger, now lets make the config better.

    Agreed.
    Also, you noted you wished to include a GUI setup option, with drag 'n drop etc. Please please make that a seperate part, not included in the Grid2OPtions, you could call it Grid2GUIOptions.
    Quote from Pastamancer
    Azethoth wants the default indicators to have task-oriented names so that status modules can provide task-oriented default settings. This would also allow users to change the location and type of a default indicator while still picking up defaults from other modules. Renaming or deleting a default indicator would prevent those defaults from affecting it.
    While I completely consider Azethoth's views as valid, it would be nice if there would be some form of compromise possible, because sadly for some of us, his views of how things should be done, don't concur with ours, therefore one of us will be on the totally losing end. Wouldn't it be better if we do try to make a compromise.
    Also, I don't feel it is needed to have 3 levels of advancement in the config. Simple and Advanced - ok, that is doable, more than that, isn't really needed.

    Eg. Simple config utilizes that GUI setup with mainly preconfigured settings, advanced drops you fully into the complexity of a setup, with the ability to start from the basics (only the base indicator/locations and stati are setup already, everything else has to be done manually.)
    Quote from Pastamancer
    Phanx is concerned that task-oriented names for the default indicators will be non-intuitive and actually conflict with how she has Grid currently setup.

    I'm intrigued by the task-oriented defaults but also concerned that having a one-to-one mapping between tasks and indicators (by default) is going to be awkward.
    That is mainly what me and Phanx are worried about. The awkwardness of having a location named after a status (thus being taskbased) while that task isn't even assigned to that particular location, which is how it is now.
    Quote from Pastamancer
    Consider the case of the 'center icon' in Grid. By default it has generic debuff types and ready check statuses assigned to it. If you call it 'debuff types' then ready check doesn't really fit. What about having status categories for each task 'generic debuff', 'specific debuff', 'my hots', 'other hots', 'aggro', 'health' (including dead/ghost), etc. and only let users assign those categories to indicators in the simple config mode. The advanced config would let people assign individual statuses.

    This, I think, is a good idea and I can find myself in it.

    Now, I will try my best to keep up with all this, I am starting a new job for which I will be away from home 14/15hrs a day (8hrs to work, the rest is train+bus), so I doubt I'll do much other then that during the week. But that said, if there's need to try new things or anything, drop me a pm, I'll do my best.

    Also, can we try and get the texture/hp/heals thing solved? It is rather annoying and at this point - it does make Grid2 unusable for me at times.

    This does make me wonder, since some have good results with certain HW. Which is the most delimiting piece of hardware for wow? I thought the memory of the gfx card in combo with the CPU (since I have upgraded from x1650pro to 8500gt and have noticed no improvement). I also have to disable shadows completely or will get barely anything moving. So I wondered which setup would allow all settings maxed and have a good fps (excluding Dalaran and WG)

    Here's a suggestion from the peanut gallery.

    When proposing default settings, rank them in order of importance. Once everyone agrees that there's nothing missing from the list and mostly agree on the order, then you can argue where to draw the line (or multiple lines).

    I personally feel that Grid shouldn't be showing your self buffs, or any buff that lasts for more than 10 minutes. There's plenty of addons that are very good at tracking buffs, let them be good at that. Let Grid be good at letting you know who needs your attention in-combat first.

    I love you!

    So, do we have a wiki page? Or shall I create one?

    Windows Vista belongs in the same category of suck as... well... umm... stuff that sucks.

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ @ 2.9 GHz
    4 GB RAM
    nVidia GeForce 6800 with 256 MB
    Windows XP x64 Edition


    Core 2 Duo E2200 @ 2.4GHz
    4GB Ram
    nVidia 8500GT with 1024MB
    Windows Vista 32bit (I swear, I like the search thing, everything else sucks, but I can't bear the idea of reinstalling everything yet again. I am waiting for my paycheck so I can get a new HDD - mine's old and worn)

    I get 25fps in the oulands :( My settings aren't high at all, and I should technically get slightly better fps. In raids, I have to turn down almost everything. I am blaming vista. Or does anyone have other ideas on why my fps can't find itself around 40. Northrend is even worse btw.

    Mh... what I don't understand is.. I mean for example one frame is 240px wide, other one is 40px wide.. then I have a by far to long border on top.. or does this function by you set the length automatically fitting? Same for height...

    You just do this:

    PhanxMod_AddBorder(Minimap, 5)

    Now the r.g.b part is not passed to the function.
