    I've been using Carbonite with Archy 1.5.1/1.5.2 since yesterday. There hasn't been any problems with the information passed.

    Check out the latest version and see if that has fixed the problem. If not, could you provide me with a screenshot of the the map pointing to the waypoint that is passed, etc.

    If enabled my Arch-window is unusable, the icons of the races are gone. enGB 1.4c

    I am looking into this issue.

    Alternatively you can bring up the artifact page by clicking on the artifact name in the Current Artifact Research list as Gorgar79 has said below.

    You can solve artifacts by clicking (or right click to use keystones as well) on the race crest icon in the Current Artifact Research list.

    still the same problem in 1.5
  • #26
    1.5.1 should correct this problem.
  • #10
    Same here, the only way to get in is to click on the name of the artifact in the on-screen list

    Cool addon. Very useful. However, the on-screen lists aren't useful to me and take up space. A way to toggle them off would be cool. I'd like to leave the minimap icons on though. Also, a reminder sound to let me know when I have enough artifacts/keystones to 'solve' something would be neat.

    You can toggle the on-screen lists and leave the minimap icons and tomtom on screen by shift left clicking the minimap icon.

    A reminder sound can now be turned on for when you have enough fragments and/or keystones to solve an artifact.

    These options are in 1.5.1

    Not sure what's happening with that. The curse website version has no files in it yet if I download the same release from curseforge, it has all the files.

    I'll recreate the zip file and upload it as 1.4c.

    Syncing is sometimes slow.
  • #6
    Ah, yeah, there doesn't seem to be any files associated with the 1.4b release. When I download it and try to install it manually there are no files in it. When the Curse Client tries to update it, it downloads but then does nothing else and it still says there is an updated version of it. Think you may have forgotten to put the files in the zip or something maybe?

    I'm liking this puppy more and more! Keep it up!

    v1.4 has been uploaded and requires approval from Curse admins.
  • #3
    The next version of Archy will have the following:
    * LDB has been integrated and now provides a bulk of information
    * TomTom support (though I have an unofficial update to the Astrolabe library for Cata since it hasn't been officially updated)
    * Ability to blacklist a digsite to become a nearest digsite for TomTom (Right click on the digsite name)
    * Ability to display digsites on the minimap
    * Rare artifact projects will have a blue name in the Current Artifact Research list
    * If the project has any sockets for keystones, it will be displayed on the Current Artifact Research list along with number of keystones you have in your bags
    * Clicking on an artifact name in the Current Artifact Research list will bring up the artifact page in the archaeology window
    * Clicking on a digsite name in the Current Digsites list will display that zone in the world map window

    Once I have finished testing, I will probably aim for a mid week release of the new version.
