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.

    Ya.. the shadow nova thing is less of a encounter file error as an oversight in the invoker. Which should be fix'd now, the flashtime gets parsed as well now :)

    btw, 25 normals I didn't get *any* of the Maloriak stuff working, and the shield counter for Atramedes didn't work. 1 shots means little time to tweak things though =/

    On the upside, since we got heroic halfus I'll soon have much much much more time to test stuff on these bosses o0.

    I received errors on Omnotron and Magmaw (so far, raid week started about half hour ago)

    Code changes (fixes) at pastebin: comments section wouldn't keep my formatting :(

    I got the same error in your most recent version of DXE on halfus this week Shaung. Not sure why it's only this fight.

    In conflicts with having click actions on the health watchers for targeting / focus, calling Show() on a secure frame is a nono. For me, personally, functionality takes precedence over aesthetics. It may make a comeback at some point in the form of playing with the alpha settings, basically... I think I can make it transparent out of combat, and non-transparent in combat w/o causing issues with secure frames, but I haven't done a ton of testing on that score.

    could you add the feature to only show the pane if in combat with a boss?

  • Avatar of Shuang Shuang Jan 25, 2011 at 15:55 UTC - 0 likes

    I'm guessing you are referring to Aegis of Flame?

    I can take a look at it.... at some point.

    Also, there may, or may not, be an issue with the timers for omnitron now. I had to put in some code in an attempt to fix a bug with the encounter not starting and that means any time the tracers are active and you pulse into combat the timers will start. This was apparently causing some lag for a guildy on an alt last night.

    We should be heading there early tonight so I'm going to try and get a profiler running to see if I can figure it out.

    Much appreciated the updates done lately by several people! I question tho. In BigWigs the timer on Council for the Flame Shield was much better timed, and i tried both the version that was in the 5.14, the one from mauricious and the one from tealta but none of them tracked it as far as I could see. Is there no proper way of tracking it, or is the even not time/percentage based?

    ba-bump, 516. Added alternate power tracker (sound for atramedes / corruption on cho'gall) as another window, and updated some options stuff
