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.

    As one of your many fans for various addons, just wanted to say:



  • #1782

    Thanks.  I can't do any archaeology without this.

    That said, no hurries...  I can live without doing archaeology until it is convenient for you to get the update done.

    Oh and one other thing... the digsites panel is missing.  Typing /archy digsites has no effect.

  • #1777

    I noticed something really odd just now.  when I right click the mimamp button to unlock archy, i see the red/yellow/green distance indicator.  When I right-click again to lock the archy frames, the red/green/yellow distance indicator vanishes!  Locking the panels shouldn't cause portions of them to dissapear. 

    It used to not do this. 

    I love this addon and I really do hope it gets the love and nourishment it requires for 6.x

  • #1776

    YeS!! PLEASE Update :((((

  • #1775

    Please update this.... PLEASE! 

  • #1774

    Archy was working for me last night. but now the distance light (red green yellow) isn't showing up nor are the archy windows.  toggling via minimap icon doesn't toggle anything.

  • #1773

    Agree, love this addon. Hoping for an update.

  • #1772

    Love the add on keep up the great work. Hope you are still trucking along for 6.0.2. Great Add on, only archy add on I'll use!

  • #1771

    Hi, will be an update for 6.0.2 pls?!?

  • #1769

    Is this getting updated for 6.0? It's currently completely broken on 6.0.2. I really hope you guys are still working on it, this is the best archeology addon by far.

  • #1770

    Check the project site link when you're wondering if an addon here on Curse is getting supported or not.  The current author of this addon is very much active, and has updated close to a dozen other addons in the last 24 hours, most of which are combat based addons. They would definitely take priority over an addon supporting a secondary profession.

    Also, the author of TomTom, an addon that Archy is heavily dependent on, has left a comment on WoW Interface:  Looks like things are going to be broken for a bit until I can get some things fixed. Please bear with me and I'll do my best to get things resolved.

    I'm sure both TomTom and Archy will be updated properly in due time.

  • #1767

    Is there a way to move the libtoast frame?  I installed toaster (addon) but it appears to only allow you to move the frame to other corners of the screen.  I'd like to make more specific movements of the frame.  I attempted to move the frame using move anything but I'm not able to get the frame name.
