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.

    Dappa: Thanks, and yes, I'll integrate spell icons in the near future. It's not an essential feature since I make all the alert colors different in the default settings. The mod is near ready for a release. The only major feature I have planned is to sync the pane timer and alert bars when logging into an already running encounter. Syncing for anything else is completely unnecessary because the client can detect all events. Right now I'm only focused on polishing and completing the boss mod aspect. In the distant future I might implement main target unit frames and a simple cooldown tracker.

    Devtech: The alerts currently have no name. I'll name then DXEAlertBar1, DXEAlertBar2...etc. in the next revision (r262)

    Akaishi: I assume you mean when the Saronite Animus is out. Just make sure you have General Vezax on focus the entire fight. Usually no one is targeting General Vezax, making it impossible to get the target of his shadow crash, so the alert will fail.

    Junkie: Possibly, I don't think it's that useful.

    Would love to have spell icons integrated into the alertbar. It can be hard to distinguish between the visible bars by text alone.

    Love the addon so far. Is there a roadmap for future releases?

    hey there i got a quick question for you ... id like to actually like to add some panels onto the bars when they show up in the alerts area. Is this possible? i cant seem to find the name of the bars like i did with dbm for example DBT_Bar_1 for the bars in dbm.

    Hi, is there any (quick) fix to yell shadow crash on general vezax encounter?

    Is there any Rangecheck-Window possible?

    I forgot to add that in, thanks. Btw distributing is broken since I modularized the addon. It'll be fixed soon.

    General Vezax´s enrage Timer doesnt work

    General_Vezax.lua

    onstart = {
    	[1] = {
    		{alert = "vaporcd"},
                    {alert = "enragecd"},
    	        {set = {saronitecount = "INCR|1"}},
    	        },
    

    will fix it ;)

    Yes, I will eventually get to it but I have a bunch of other features on the todo list. For now you can only scale the alert bars.

    Can you add an Alpha configuration for the Bars ??

    Yes, you are right, thanks.
