    You don't really need DXE to do that just set it as a focus target.

    Is there any way that on Halion people who stay up in P2 (for example the physical realm tank and healers) can see the health of the dragon in the shadow realm? This would allow us more easily to be ready to pick him up, without extra vent traffic (the shadow realm is already a handful).

    D:\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\(My account name)\Silvermoon\(My character name with the problem) had a file in it called layout-local.txt. Somehow it got corrupted. I can only assume that some bizzarre addon (and Ive tried a lot lately) screwed it up. I had added an entire ui that I got from Weazl, and thats when the problem started.The minute I looked at this file, I could see that it was designating a position in the same corner the requesters were getting stuck in. I just removed it, restarted, all is fine. It created a new proper one.

    Sounds like something is messed up in your layout-cache.txt file.

    And its in the WTF/realm/character name folder. Im still narrowing it down.

    It still happens with no other addons active. Also, I see now that EVERY color requester, from Deus Vox, Satrina Buffs, Pit Bull 4......they are all now glued to the right side. Yet, if I go onto another character or create a new character, they are fine.

    @CitadelRunner, can you duplicate this with no other addons running? Because I can't duplicate this problem.

    @Galvin, At this point there's really not much more we can do about shadowtraps. The problem you're experiencing is when the target of the trap is mis-detected. This is largely a function of the fact that there is no 100% accurate way to detect the target. Shadow Traps do not generate an event that identifies the target. They do not generate a debuff. The only way we can detect the target is by the target of Lich King changing, which is unreliable.

    There's been no changes to the trap target detection since the last release was done. The arrows have been changed to know about the ranges of the abilities you're moving from, but that's it.

    I have not see any boss mod addon have accurate trap detection 100% of the time. Sometimes we all fail. So I'd recommend using multiple methods to detect this. I'd recommend familiarizing yourself with the sound of the trap warning and looking around for where the trap is.

    TL;DR The problem you're experiencing isn't a bug in DXE, it's a limitation of the game in providing the information to us. We can't fix it.

    Any idea when a release is coming. I rather not risk using an alpha DXE when we're still progressing on LK HM. By the looks of things a new alpha's come out very frequently.

    Was wondering if the shadowtrap arrow bug is fixed, a lot of times with version 490 the arrow will not point to the shadowtrap at all.

    Having a problem. When I open up the color and transparency requester, it is stuck onto the left side of my screen instead of centered. I cannot move it. As a result, I cannot access any info to the right of where it is stuck. I recently noticed that several other requesters are stuck there. Whats the problem?
