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.

    @x3lt, I really can't understand what you're trying to say. But I believe you're asking about the sound issue where turning off sounds in the Blizzard configuration screen turns off DXE sounds. There is nothing we can do about this. It's a Blizzard issue. You'll have to have those sounds on now if you want to hear DXE. Sorry.

    @Rectile and @tashur, I've identified the issue that was breaking some alerts. The timer library we were using to get higher resolution timers was failing due to a bug in Blizzard's Animation system. The Blizzard bug caused the timers to simply never start. I've identified a workaround and fixed the library, v506 includes the new library and should fix the issues.

    Okay so sound issues. There are several different issues here.

    a) If you have sound disabled from the Blizzard configuration it disables sound from addons as well. There is nothing we can do about this. It's a problem Blizzard will have to address, sorry.

    b) If you have custom sounds they may not work, Blizzard apparently has broken the ability to play some sound files. Converting them to the OGG format apparently is resolving the issue for some people.

    Yeah the previous ability to be able to shut off all sound and just hear the DXE warnings was one of the best things about this addon, hopefully that ability can be restored. Good luck guys

    As of the evening of 10/13/2010, defile-casting-on-self warnings for HLK seem to be broken. He put one on me and I got no alert or /say.
