    Not Showing Goto On Map

    Is there anyone that can tell me how to enable the 'goto' on the map?  Archy WAS doing that for me, but now it doesn't.  My better half has Archy and it shows the 'goto' line on the map.  Any suggestions?

  • #1654

    It hasn't been showing for me either.  Toggling it in the options and setting key bindings aren't working.  I can't get the distance window to show up at all.

    Easy fix for me was to go to line 2021 in Archy.lua and replace "G.MBF.db.profile.MinimapIcons" with "G.bachMBF.db.profile.MinimapIcons" , same on line 2022 and 2032 , no lua error when login in anymore and archy seems to work fine.

  • #1644

    Same error here too... any ideas on a quick fix?

  • #1643

    The author of Minimap Button Frames (MBF), changed the global to something else to deal with another addon conflict. Archy will likely need to be updated to reflect the new variable.

  • #1641

    Something is wrong with the addon for the past couple weeks now - whenever I'm in the two moon's temple in vale of eternal blossoms, it continually spams location refreshes. I'm not sure if this is b/c parts of the temple are in different zones or what, but it would be nice if it just temporarily turned the mod off till you exited the temple.

  • #1640

    Just been updated, as far as my 'set' goes, that is.

  • #1639

    Wieso muss man "Veraltete Addons laden" aktivieren damit Archy weiter funktioniert, wird das Addon nicht mehr aktualisiert?

  • #1638

    Open the .toc file in Notepad and change the Interface line to 50100 instead of 50001 and it will load again.

  • #1637

    I made a quick video showcasing the basic functionalities of this addon :-)

    May I Please get an email from the devs of this for permission to put this on youtube. Please contact me at [email protected]

    Are you going to update this for the 5.1 Patch? Mine is not working anymore since they updated WOW. I have tryed to uninstall and reinstall Archy but it still does not show up.

    Please update it so I may continue to use it. I can't see any dig spots anywhere now. So I can't just go and do it on my own.

  • #1635

    For Archy to show up, you have to "Allow Out-of-Date Addons" in your addons menu. Also, you can enable digsites to be visible without Archy by checking the "Show Digsites" checkbox on your world map.

  • #1633

    Love your addon!

    Quick recommendation. The Archy display panels should disappear during pet battles. They overlap with various pet battle panels. Since the minimap and most other control points go away during pet battles it's impossible to turn Archy off while the battle is engaged.

    When I recall to Dalaran I get the "ding ding" and this message that's just all sorta weird:

    You can sovle Dwarf Artifact - Warlord's Branding Iron (Fragments: 0 of 0)
