    @Orctayvius: You could send it to me. Could you send me a PM with everything you've changed?

    @Azethoth: Defile on self is when you're standing in it. Defile Casting tells you when it's going to land on you.

    @Halucinate: See http://www.wowace.com/addons/deus-vox-encounters/tickets/70-proximity-window-additional-configuration/ about additional proximity features. Feel free to post.

    @ramalina: It should be fixed in the latest package

    @Zyo: It's on the todo list.

    @wimpyone: Referring to latest I'm pretty sure there is an addon that puts a giant AGGRO on the middle of your screen. I was going to put a numeric value on the power bar but I couldn't fit it in without making it look ugly. I'll probably add it in at some point.

    Referring to 2nd post It's not possible to configure the time at which it animates. You'll have to modify the 'flashtime' number in the encounter file.

    Referring to 3rd post 1) Target change is the Invocation timer. I think that's what you want 2) Yeah I've been lazy about adding it in. The Icy Grip and Frost breach always come a few seconds before the Unchained Magic cooldown is done, so I've been going off that. 3) Saurfang, and Gunship Battle have been added in the latest alpha

    I am currently Modifying the Alerts and Sounds on the DXE addon to make it more noticeble and to make it easier to adapt your self to each situation, I will have preset flashes for every obstacale, and Completley new Sounds for voidzone/ Adds/ Positioning and what not, I am in desperate need of players to test this though, If you don't mind helping me I will send you a copy of the DXE file its self and the profile you just load it up and your good to go

    Also, would it be possible to add a countdown from 10 seconds to zero, adding a /say <insert text, 10 seconds left!> and continuing every second, every time a player has the plague rolling?

    I am completely baffled by the defile warnings for lich king. Which is the important one? Defile Casting or Defile on Self? It ought to be Defile Casting warning me that its going to land on me but then whats Defile on Self for? Standing in someone elses defile? Or letting me know that I just got defile and its already too late to run?

    Echoing what Ramalina said a couple posts down. Seems the Dominate Mind timer for DW Hardmode is off by a good 3-5 seconds. Not really sure how to exactly pinpoint the time differences between the game and boss mod. >.<

    Wondered if it'd be possible to get the proximity window resizable in a rectangular manner rather than just a square? i got everything else rectangluar or elongated horizontally on my ui and it'd just be nice to be able to make it fit too... I figured this would be a very minor change and tried to fiddle with the code but my fumbling attempts just managed to break the resizing altogether! If it's a huge hassle just ignore me, but if it's easy enough to change/tell me what to do, I'd be massively happy and grateful... my guild is swapping over this week and I'm enjoying DXE very much :)

    Must ask about 2 Fights with this addon! Putricide Malleable Goos! Is it possible to have a say message like Bigwigs has? The same at Lich king with Defile!

    As soon You get Defile You Should say something like "Defile On Me" Same with "Malleable Goo On Me"

    If the addon allready have it how do i turn on the function! Plz explain ;)

    It seemed that the timers for Deathwhisper in 25man heroic mode for Dominate Mind are off.

    A couple more ideas:

    An aggro bar warning. This would be very useful for quite a few encounters. For instance, handy to know if you get aggro one of the oozes in the Rotface encounter.

    Would be useful to see a numeric value for the boss' percentage mana/energy (in the same way one is shown for their health) in quite a few encounters (e.g. Deathwhisper, Saurfang)
