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.

Localizations

Please visit the localization page to translate in-game phrases. It is open to anyone with an account. The most important phrases are the chat triggers for bosses, because they start encounters. 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)
  • Brazilian Portuguese (ptBR)
  • Latin American Spanish (esMX)

    Testwarnings do not work.

    function Prototype:LayoutAlertStack(stack,anchor)
    		sort(stack, SortFunc)
    	  >>>>  for alert in ipairs(stack) do  <<<<
    			alert:ClearAllPoints()
    			alert:SetPoint("TOP",anchor,"BOTTOM")
    			anchor = alert
    		end
    	end
    

    changed to an older code like this

    function Prototype:LayoutAlertStack(stack,anchor)
    		sort(stack, SortFunc)
    	  >>>>	for i=1,#stack do <<<<
    			local alert = stack[i]
    			alert:ClearAllPoints()
    			alert:SetPoint("TOP",anchor,"BOTTOM")
    			anchor = alert
    		end
    	end
    

    POOOF....no it works ;)

    I've begun to add localization in http://www.wowace.com/projects/deus-vox-encounters/localization/. I can't translate everything myself. If your guild members would like to help I'd appreciate it.

    Tested at Ulduar and i am very surprised. I like it more then DBM oder BW but many of our Member used the deDE Client so they see noch Timerbars. It is possible to add a localisation?

    Yes, it was.
