Getting Started

When you first login with this AddOn you will see a black transparent rectangle with a blue bar labeled 'Default', called the encounter pane, in the center of your screen. Shift+Click on it to move it. From left to right you will see:

  1. Stop Icon: Halts the current encounter (you should rarely have to do this)
  2. Menu Icon: Opens the configuration dialog
  3. Folder Icon: Opens a drop down menu to activate encounters
  4. Lock Icon: Toggles frame anchors
  5. Windows Icon: Opens a drop down menu to show interface windows

Also, if you ever hide the pane and can't get it to show, type /dxe for commands. There is also a minimap icon, which can open the configuration dialog.

    @Maev81: Go

    Would be great to see it come back I got used to my screen flashes instead of watching timer bars. I cannot imagine how much time something like this takes.

    Thx in advance whatever you can do

    Hi all,

    i come back and will try to bring a update the soon as possible, alot to fix from what i seen of the changes in wow but only when raids is available i will be able to test it properly

    also will try to bring dxe to 5man but is really to tight to raids, will see what i can without creating more bugs

    but all depends of my time

    Is there any update on this being updated? Favourite boss mod by a long way. Would love to see it running again.

    Here's hoping

    I really hope this will be continued! Set as abandoned now :( I can't stand DBM, so ugly, so little customisation! One thing I missed from the newer DXE is the faster moving top to center anchored bars. They were faster before.

    Anyways, will it be updated for 6.0 Mists, or atleast WoD?

    i've stopped playing, guild and everyone i know stopped so...

    i dont know if DXE still works in latest patch, if it does timers were good, some better than others but generally good

    as for the next expansion i probably will play it and update DXE for it

    Hello

    Ive used DXE ages ago and would like to use it again. At its current status is it usable for raids, i mean are the timers etc are acurate or still a bit "alpha"?

    thx ;)

    Added as promised first Alpha for Siege of Orgrimmar

    Some bosses aren't fully done (paragons comes to mind), there will be probably bugs so use the Tickets to report them

    DXE is usuable for the encounters, at least the normal ones and some in Heroic

    I will try to update as the my time allow it, so... happy testing/gaming and try do not cast some curse on me if something doesn't work :|

    My mind has been tuned to the sounds and alarms of DXE haha. It prioritizes the auditory and visual input much better than DBM or BigWigs.

    sorry for late reply

    tmil93: Thank you, i will really try to release a alpha for next Tuesday or Wednesday regardless of bosses code state but at least the first ones will be near accurable for normal and heroic because i tested them on guild run (but of course bugs can still be there)

    Thalirium: although i didn't make this for money a donation is always nice, the Donation link on this site dont even go to me, goes to the original creator, so thats proves that money wasn't the reason i'm doing this, the reason is basically what you said and that's no other comes close to the customization DXE gives
