ATTENTION:

If you want to use the Resurrection status properly, players in your group/raid need to have LibResComm-1.0 running.

If they are using my version of Grid2, it's implemented.
Other players can use my version of the Lib (modified for the server).

It does not show incoming heals if you invert the health bar color. :(

And self-only missing buffs also are shown on the other raid member frames, inner fire for example.

Bless you dude! I almost gave up on grid because I got a different version that couldn't even resize the damn bars.

Then there's something wrong with your configuration.
I recommend to configure it properly and not use inverting at all.

My modified version has a custom statusbar API with more features than the default Blizz one.

And self-only missing buffs also are shown on the other raid member frames, inner fire for example.
The option "Show if mine" means "Display status if the buff was cast by me" (which the tooltip tells you).

Inner Fire is only in there to exemplify the buff options.

Sorry for asking, but what have you done to Grid that I can't already do myself?

- added custom statusbar API to allow reverse grow (horizontally and vertically)
- modified event API to handle 3.3.5 system (based on 5.4 version)
- implemented heal prediction
- many minor adjustments to work with 3.3.5

If I install this (the zipped folder) and overwrite my grid2 in the addons, will it update to how it looks here? Or is that not carried over? I am having some errors with grid2 and just want a clean working base. Thanks.

Existing configurations stay intact.
If no user configuration is found, the layout defaults to a class-based default
(a bit like this:)

The layout in the initial post is my custom configuration which you can recreate quite easily.
Or I can share it to you ingame.

What kind of errors did you encounter?

Every time I log or zone, I get a LUA popup error. Not terrible but a little annoying. Thanks for your work on this!

Ok, you have the Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames disabled.

The easiest way to fix the problem yourself is to disable Hide Blizzard Raid Frames on Startup under General Settings > Misc
or use the following command ingame:/run Grid2.db.profile.hideBlizzardRaidFrames = nil; ReloadUI()

You actually shouldn't disable the default RaidFrame because that can break certain AddOns relying on it to be loaded by default.
ElvUI itself even has a localized error message for this case ;)https://github.com/ElvUI/ElvUI/search?utf8=✓&q=Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames&type=Code


I've added another check for this in the current release.

I'm pretty interested on how you would explain that to somebody who worked on both AddOns on retail ...

You have it set to 38 yards by default, and when you change it to 40 yards, it greys out everyone, as if theyre out of range, even yourself.

40 yards is max range for my holy light(im a paladin duh) so having those 2 extra yards really helps.

I somehow fixed this magically, and I do not know how to repeat it.

But if someone could fix this by default, that'd be nice.

I made a repository for all the changes I made to this version of Grid2, with credit to the original author.

https://github.com/Chenocide/Grid2

Note: I changed the range 40 in roughly 5 different places (you can see where if you look at the latest commit by following the link above), but I don't know if it works, I haven't tested it. Give me a poke here if it doesn't work.

Edit: Just realized that it's not possible to see the commits since the one content commit contains all changes. The file in question is located here:
https://github.com/Chenocide/Grid2/blob/master/Grid2/modules/StatusRange.lua

Seems like I misunderstood your first message then, as I thought the problem was that you couldn't set the default range to 40. It seems like there's a general problem with range 40 and I really don't know why that would be.

The only technical explanation I could come up with is that you don't have an ability with 40 yards range but you should have access to that. A lot of addons uses spells and specific actions, like follow etc, to check if something is within range. I've noticed that I have a similar problem with 36 yards in the first version of Grid and I'm not really sure why.

Yeah, it is really weird.

It's not a problem for me anymore, since I somehow magically fixed it, but ppl who download this addon, will have that problem as I showed in the video.

As long as I have my old cache files saved, and apply my old cache to a fresh installed WoW 3.3.5, the 40 yard will work, and I have no idea why.

So I was hoping for a fix, so ppl wont have this problem in future, when they download this addon.

Grid2 is by far one of the best customizable raid frames out there imo. So I was freaking out when I couldnt get the 40 yards to work, since it's essential that it doesn't display ppl that are in range as out of range. But luckily I had my old cache saved.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, hehe.
