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

James D. Callahan III:
    - Call RefreshWorldMap() from within ToggleDigsiteVisibility() instead of doing so manually every time the latter is called.
    - Move toggling of the digsite visibility (if required) outside of the loop in UpdateAllSites(), so it's only done once.

    Since last upgrade Framoption / Size restes when I log in next time.
    Both Artifacts and Dig Sites.

    I'm having this problem as well.  I will log in and turn Archy on and those frames reset to default or something.  I will then go into Archy options and check something like "Lock Archy" and it goes back to my settings.  It will hold the settings as long as I keep Archy open even when I switch characters.  But if I close Archy, switch to another character, and turn it back on, the settings are lost again and I have to go back into Archy settings again and do the check thing again.

    Hey, great addon.

    If its possible, I'd very much like to see in the Project Overview screen the list of Pristine artifacts still missing.

  • #1962

    Not sure if its Archy's fault or not, but I recall there being a bar that shows how many digs i have left in the current dig-site area. This bar has gone from my screen after 6.1 - Is that an issue caused by Blizzard or Archy?

  • #1963

    This has been rolled into the Digsites window: Shows 2/6 or 0/9 etc. May add a config option for this later if there's enough demand for it. I removed it due to complaints.

  • #1964

    I was just used to it being there in the UI. But now when you say it, I actually noticed it in the Archy box, so all is fine :}

    Same issue as other people have listed, solve button isn't working with keystones

  • #1960

    Fixed in

    I would like to request an addition to this addon. If it would be possible to setup a optional window that can display which artifacts for each race have been discovered or not discovered I would like that very much. Thank you.

    Something happened with the latest ~2 versions (stopped digging for 1-2 weeks, but curse client keeps it updated) and the Solve button doesn't work for me. It still shows that I can solve the project, but when I click nothing happens.

    Disabled all my addons, downloaded Archy manually, clean install, after I set my custom settings (nothing extra: graphical style with black background), Solve button stops working.

    Can confirm, solve is working now!

  • #1957

    I'm having the same problem.

  • #1952

    I'm getting "you can solve this" alerts on logging in for two archaeology projects that are one off of being fully completed (49/50 for ogre stone dentures and 29/30 for nelf necklace with elune pendant).
