    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.
  • #142
    The database found has about 2500 unique nodes in it currently. I did some changes and also I is prepared/working for 1.6 release of Archy. Go ahead and upload your savedvariables files and get this database updated.
  • #140
    If I blacklist a race, is it possible to remove it from blacklist later?
  • #141
    How does one blackist a race? I can't seem get anything other than nightelf sites and want some variety. Is this addon able to reroll available dig sites for those of us that get railroaded into an indiverse choice of sites, or is that something we should send in a ticket for?
  • #143
    Blacklisting a race is undoable on the same options screen as enabling it.
    Blacklisting a race only disregards it in terms of currently allocated fragments and prevents it from alerting you when you are able to complete a project. The purpose of this is for those who have created everything they care to see from that race.
  • #139
    I'm currently using Carbonite, which puts the minimap buttons in a straight line down (as opposed to around the minimap itself.) With all the "Minimap Options" unchecked, I still have of the "shovels" showing up as part of this bar for whatever reason. If I enable and disable "Show Digsites on Minimap" it toggles between 20 and 24 shovels.

    Is anybody else experiencing this?
  • #138
    Very useful addon. Thank you. :)
  • #137

    In the Current Artifact list, for Common artifacts, have the name in White if it is one that you have not made before. And keep it Grey if it is a repeat.
  • #135
    I am aware of the Broken Commons induced bug that is in 1.5.3.
