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.

However, not all encounters are started by chat triggers. The rest of the phrases are for display purposes. The following languages need a maintainer:

  • Korean (koKR)
  • Russian (ruRU)
  • Simplified Chinese (zhCN)
  • Spanish (esES)
  • Traditional Chinese (zhTW)

    @nummy: You're right. I fixed this in the latest alpha. I had the cooldown set at 30 seconds when it should instead be 40 seconds. Many more alerts were added in the latest alpha for the last 3 of the 4 bosses.

    @phaulen: Use /dxelb for local bars. You can see the options in Alerts -> Bars -> Custom Bars

    Hi. I am running version 409, and it seemed like all of the timers for Saurfang were off. I had both dxe and dbm running (maybe that's a mistake) and the dbm timers for blood beasts were correct. I didn't see the dxe notification on blood beasts until their third spawn and even then, the timer was off. Wiped a few times, but this was noticeable from the first attempt. Is this a known issue or maybe there is something wacky with my local copy.

    The other icc bosses were fine.

    @gen, perfect, was out-thinking the room, it would appear that you'd need to be raid assist to use it, any option for it being local only?

    before posting an enhancement, I figured I'd post just in case it's easy to do what I'm trying to do w/o it.

    It would be nice to be able to add custom timers to the list, either by /command or script not unlike can be done with dbm (/dbm timer duration text) and I believe BW has similar functionality as well. I often use these features in macros to add custom timers/cooldowns so I have all my important timers in one place.

    I took a look through some of the code to see if I could find a function that does what I'm looking for but didn't find it.

    Thanks for any guidance.

    @escafoxx: I'm not entirely sure why it would be using 90mb. I didn't majorly change anything internally this patch. Maybe it could be a library embedded in it using that much memory. I'll try running the packaged version and seeing if I experience it.

    @Jaidan: Gothik spawn timers weren't added because the encounter was completely trivial. DXE can track pretty much anything in-game. I've been busy for the last week (finals) so I haven't gotten in every timer I want to. You'll see them soon!

    @bunshun: The three bosses needed chat message triggers translated. I'll package a new release soon.

    @genetik: The ticketing system is better because I might lose track of comments.

    @mclagett: It should be fixed. It's a lower bound I found in one log.

    My bad. I was looking at the wrong addon. Tried to delete then edit the previous post, but couldn't. Sorry for the mixup.

    First off, as most people say about this add on, this totally kicks DBMs arse

    I've recently come across a problem though, I've noticed when I'm in ICC 25 (at the minute of typing this up) DXE's memory usage went into the 90mb+ area without me being able to do a garbage collect. The only way I am able to reset its usage to something more reasonable is a /console reloadui, with the memory still gaining slowly back up to a high number after. Normally I do a quick garb_col after each boss fight as Power Auras likes to take 10mb which soon goes after the flush. But DXE still likes to maintain a high usage. I can't say I've noticed this happening in ToC, so unsure if this is linked to the ICC part of the add-on. Has anyone else noticed this gain in memory usage?

    Sorry, but I couldn't find out how to disable the raid frames. Can someone point me in the right direction?
