All Minimap based frames (such as nodes, dig sites and dig site boundaries) have been prefixed now with ArchyMinimap To stop these addons from taking these frames from the minimap, add the following item to their protected items list: ArchyMinimap

    Wow, congartulations, this Update 1.6.3 is a major step and works like a charm.
    Keep up the good work. Is the distancemeter movable?
  • #178
    Minor issue with the digsite boundaries on minimap:

    The blobs are not clipped to the map frame. While it does help navigating to them, I don't want the blobs spilling outside the minimap :-)

    (I use the Mappy addon, by the way)

    when i try to manually place a keystone in the blizzard UI while having archy on it won't allow me. i can still solve using the artifact list, but the blizzard UI dosen't work with keystones since the latest update (1.6.2)
  • #177
    Get 1.6.3. It should solve this problem for you.
  • #175
    ver.1.5.3 works fine, since 1.6.1 don´t work anything
    - only seen Current Artifact List, but nothing more
    - Mini-Map-Icon also seen, but nothing works

    ... sry, for my bad english , hope you understand
  • #174
    I dont know if this is fixed in incoming 1.6.3 but red digsite overlay is showing outside minimap area, it can show anywhere in whole display.
    Second error is massive taint (3 minutes session - taint.log 900kb)

    1.6.3 is waiting approval. May take a few hours depending on the admins.

    Change log for v1.6.3 - 22-Dec-2010
    * Added a missing German localization value which was causing problems
    * Fixed an issue with placing a keystone in the Blizzard ArchaeologyUI caused all artifacts to refresh
    * Fixed a compatibility issue with several addons (including LUI)
    * Added basic LibSharedMedia support to further customize the artifacts and dig sites lists

    Just updated my Archy today - 12/22 - and it completely breaks my UI. I'm using LUI, was working prior to update. It screws up all the textures, my unit frames (ouf) and a few other addons. Used separately I'm not sure if it would, or if anyone else is having the problem, but def breaks mine and is def archy as it's all back to normal when I turn it off.

    Just one question, i am using Sexymap as minimap addon. I don´t see those cyan dots or the red X for the digging points. Is this a problem of sexymap?
  • #168
    I'll have a fix for the german client out very shortly.
  • #167
    Love all the next features in 1.6.1+ but i cant solve the artifacts i make, i saw a comment further down that you know about this, but does anyone have another arctifact completion UI that would still work until a new version?
  • #170
    i've just read on your wowinterfact comments that you can right click on the symbol for the faction on your overlay list to solve a item with keystones and that still works, awesome.
  • #169
    left click (to solve without keystones) or right click (to solve with keystones) on the racial crest icon in the artifacts list to solve for that race.
  • #166
    same problem here with the german client.
    still using 1.5.3., works fine :)
  • #164
    Same here, using the german client:
