Minimap Button Frame and other similar addons

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

    I'll add it to the addon description soon but add the following two protected items:

  • #182
    I just updated to 1.6.3, and my Archy windows were only partially onscreen. I couldn't find a spot that would let me drag them, so I hit Reset Positions. Now they're even more off my screen. Any hints for me on this one please? Thanks in advance for any help.
  • #214
    did you
    "If you have an old version of Archy (a version prior to 1.6) please delete the addon from your Interface\AddOns folder first then install it"
  • #185
    Just an update: I reverted to 1.5.3, and one of them came back on screen, but the other one is still hosed.
  • #181
    I use TukUI, and with Archy I got a grey rectangle right in the middle of the screen that I can't move nor do I know the purpose of it.
  • #180
    With 1.6.3 I have two issues

    The Zone/Battlefield map is not movable anymore (it was in 1.5.3)
    The minimap indicators get picked up by the addon MinimapButtonFrame, which they weren't before
  • #191
    Deleting the addon and it's settings and reinstalling fixed issue 1, the right click menu wouldn't pop up otherwise
  • #179
    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)
  • #176
    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 donĀ“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
  • #172
    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.
