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 quit the game, install the latest release, load it up and nothing. Every single other encounter is there but Lich King.

    I've even completely deleted my DXE folder in my Addon folder and reinstalled and still zilch :(.

    Have you exited the game since you updated. If you updated from a version that didn't have it and hadn't completely exited the game it won't see the file.

    For some reason Lich King is not showing up under my encounters. The Lich_King.lua file is in my Icecrown folder, but in game it is not listed on the encounter list to be loaded.

    I am running the most current version that was posted on Feb 6th at aprox 11:30pm :/

    N/m that, after I reinstalled it appeared just as it should, went scrolling through the LUA files for nothing :)

    I downloaded the latest version of DXE, being v427-7-g9684090. When I was scrolling through the boss list of Icecrown Citadel I noticed Valithria wasn't in there. Did you forget to enable it?

    Will Toravon be added? Not like we need any messages on that boss, but still, would be nice to see it completed.

    Since I never left a message before, thanks for creating such an awesome bossmod and updating it properly. Awesome job.

    I don't know. I guess it could be. I just had to figure out the #4#, #5# stuff and I got it working fairly quick. Just failed and named them wrong so they pointed the wrong way but I have tested it since then and it works properly now.

    @suicidalkatt: Widgets\Timer.lua, lines 14 and 22. I'll add an option for it.

    Would it possible to adjust the font of the timer number text? Or could you point me to the location of where I could edit it myself?
