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.

    @jimmydanny: Go

    sure i will try to help

    go to folder DXE\Widgets and open Timer.lua, there you will see how its created

    then when i create a bar i add this code that will call the New function on Timers.lua

    	local timer = addon.Timer:New(self)
    	self.timer = timer

    and basically when i set a new/update a cooldown bar i call the function SetTime(time) in Timers.lua

    dbm probably have all the stuff set up, you just need to add a new text and use the code in SetTime to get the .01

    I have to ask, I don't know if you made the core once upon a time but... The counters on the bars, they even show .01 of a second, how is this done? I was trying to mod DBM to do it but could not find out how. This is not a big thing but I feel they do give a lot more accurate timers somehow. Probably just the feel tho.

    Really hope you keep up the good work through WoD, Maev! Love DXE over all, DBM is by far inferior in my eyes on many points, the update speed not being one of the, which makes me ask my leading question above.

    Sorry for the delay, couldn't work much on DXE lately but expect an update in Sunday or Monday the latest.

    Will try to fill the fights the much i can but the priority will be Cooldowns

    hi all, glad your liking dxe, will do some more updates especially on Mythic that i got there now

    yes i will update for Blackrock Foundry but at first will only be Cooldowns, stand in fire stuff alerts and few more because i want to do stuff at stages like i said a few comments back duo to lack of time

    as for donation that is set here on wowace isn't going to me but for one of the original Authors and i'm just considered a Maintainer and can't change that. As of providing a way to me on the Description don't know if wowace allows it

    Where do I donate?

    This is hands down the best addon I've ever used.

    I'm ecstatic it's back.

    well guys here it is the update for 6.0.3, it has Highmaul, Party module and World boss module (both still needs testing)

    about next raid...i asked around for about what is that players love in DXE and if they use another bossmod along with it, the general response was the customization on Cooldowns (audio cds more), customization on standing in shit alerts, arrows and boss health tracking. About bossmods almost all said yes because of my slow updates.

    so my idea is to release next raid (and future ones) in stages:

    1. for release day: have all CDs on all bosses, standing in shit alerts and boss health tracking and try to do all important message alert (debuff on player) <- for other stuff players will use another bossmod

    2. after release day (no ETA): arrows, incoming alerts, Debuff alerts

    3. later: do advanced stuff that boss require and hopelly players doesn't need to use 2 bossmods (especially for mythic)

    This is because A) my limited time, B) on the first week/two alot of the Cooldowns have to be changed and some events from Beta changes in Live (like happen in alot of bosses in Highmaul)

    so what is you opinion about this and what is the feature that you love the most in DXE to be put in stage 1 (if not there already)

    hope you like it and sorry if you see some debug messages or erros, tried to remove them all

    @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
