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. Lock Icon: Toggles frame anchors
  4. 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 to open the configuration dialog. There is also a minimap icon.

    I've heard great things about this boss mod. I currently use DBM as does the rest of my guild.

    I am wondering if anyone has used this while the rest of the raid uses something else and If so does it cause any issues? SInce I raid lead eveyone goes by my warnings with thier own timers up. Just don't want to cause any confusion while I test this out.

    I love your mod above all other Boss Mods. That being said, I was wondering if you could incorporate Vengeful Shades into DXE as, perhaps, an auxiliary/optional warning. When the Vengeful Shades "SWING_DAMAGE" or "SWING_MISSED" on a player, it corresponds with a "fail" (proximity) which results in their SPELL_DAMAGE effect.

    I apologize if this is outside the scope of your addon.

    The old raging spirit timer is no longer possible anymore.

    They probably changed a spellid. I'll fix it when I get more information.

    I've noticed that the Soul Reaper timers disappear on 10 man Heroic LK. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Edit: Same with 25 man heroic.

    Could be it's a blizzard bug, but it's still linked to DXE imo. Especially since it only appeared once I installed the addon, and it's not there nor does it appear if I disable the addon.

    Thanks for the commands, I'll make sure to use them whenever it happens again, in addition to a screenshot.

    There's been a fair bit of discussion on the "invisible frame" problem over at PitBull4. They concluded it was actually a Blizzard bug.

    Edit: /rl will fix it temporarily.

    When the bug happens mouseover the frame and type /dump GetMouseFocus():GetName(), /dump GetMouseFocus():GetParent():GetName(), and /dump GetMouseFocus():GetParent():GetParent():GetName(). Let me know if they print out anything.

    I'll see what I can do about a screenshot next time it happens. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with an anchor though, as when i press the "toggle anchors" button in the config panel there is no clickable panel there, and due to the sheer width of the area it can't be the promixity tab thats messing up. Especially since I moved that

    It's not necessarily in the same place it happens every time either, which makes it all the stranger. Sometimes it can be just on top of the character area, sometimes a little above that and sometimes a little above that again. Whole thing is mildly confusing, especially when none of my other guildies using DXE has this issue.
