About Archy - Archaeology Assistant

If you care at all about my wishes, you won't download this AddOn from SolidIce: They are leeching it from the site I actually choose to put it on.

Archy is an assistant for Archaeologists that want information at their finger tips.

    I'm using 1.6.1 and I love it for the most part. However when I try to complete artifacts using the blizz UI, if I click to use a keystone the page changes, the fragments no longer show up properly and the solve button disappears. Any thoughts?
  • #165
    I had the same trouble,I using the chinese client.
  • #155
    This will be fixed in 1.6.3. I have already submitted 1.6.2 which does not include a fix for this.
  • #153
    When I try to load 1.6.1 most of my UI disappears. I think whatever updates you made might be conflicting with LUI ( Disabling Archy fixes the problem. I'm not sure how to help debug the issue.
  • #156
    This will be fixed in 1.6.3

    1.6.3 is working great! Thanks for the quick updates. I'm loving it.
  • #150
    I have just submitted 1.6.1 which should resolve most, if not all, problems.

    If the artifacts list doesn't update after receiving fragments on an non-english client, could you please email me so I try to resolve the problem.

  • #151
    Just depends on when the admins get around to approving the file which could take hours.
  • #149
    I got 1.6 off of wowinterface but it had a ton of LUA errors as others report. So I deleted my saved variables for archy, deleted the addon and installed a new 1.6. No more errors, but fragments are no longer x'ing on the minimap either
  • #148
    How are you guys installing 1.6 when all it shows for me on the page is 1.5.3 ?
  • #147
    Installed 1.6 TomTom integration still not operating as wanted. Arrow pops on login, and with 1.6 even when changing zone using teleport.
  • #146
    1.6 installed. On selecting 'Show Dig Site Boundaries on minimap' when I fly over a site the red area comes right out of the minimap covering the screen, more so as I fly over. i.e. it is not constrained within the minimap.
  • #152
    I'm having the same issue. I had to uninstall and reinstall 1.5.3 until this can be resolved. Other than that, great work with this add-on. Cheers!
  • #144
    Is it just me but I can only see Version 1.5.3 ? Has version 1.6 been taken down?
  • #145
    Perhaps just the Curse uploader taking time. ver. 1.6 is available in the meantime on wowinterface until it is here.
