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

    5.0 issues

    I use several addons, but Archy is one of my favorites.  Almost everything it does should be baked right into the official UI, darn it!

    However, since 5.0, it's been giving me issues.  Each login begins with a list of missing data for Pandarian digsites, and the option to double-click to search in digsites (EasyCast) no longer seems to function.  I updated it to the latest version, I even turned off all my old addons, but still no luck with EasyCast.  Has anyone else experienced this?

    Archy and Carbonite
    I got the latest Beta version and this is still doing the same thing

    Carbonite addon, the zones dont show on mouse over if Archy is installed. :-( shame cos i love both the addons any idea for a fix?

  • #1464

    No sorry...

    There's a few reasons for this:

    1. Carbonite seems abandonware, most recent activity I see is from a user submitting unofficial fixes here (I'm not going to spend time trying to debug a 3rd party addon that might or might not be eventually updated by the original creators)

    2. Carbonite code has been ran through an obfuscator in the past and though it's been unobfuscated somewhat to comply with Blizz addon policy, it's still very hard to follow, so even if I (1) didn't apply I'd rather gouge my own eyes out than try to debug it Tongue out

    Your best bet is someone from the Carbonite users community finding out the problem.

    Apologies I can't be of more help.

    It is seeming that you now get 6 digs per site instead of 3 in 5.0.4

     1.8.26 beta seems to be working well, but it'll show 3/3. 4/3, and 5/3 in the dig count 

  • #1462

    Fixed for next release. (but I won't push an update, for such minor issue until some data updates have been made)

  • #1459

    Am missing the ability to have the interface open, showing artifacts working on, one click survey etc, am using  1.8.26  Beta

  • #1461

    Do you mean "double-right click the world" survey? (also known as easycast survey)

    There never was a one-click survey.

    Yes, the 2 click on ground to cast the survey spell is not working, as well as a missing "survey" button (with easycast on or off) is missing from the main UI. Still using it, but that and the 4 areas that are missing data for MoP spam are a few discouraging things atm with the latest builds.

    Running version 1.8.24

    Still being excluded in the blizzard addon list because "out of date".

    I know I can click the load out of date addons but this causes too many errors due to other addons which I'm choosing not to run until they're updated

    Just above the description, click on "Other Downloads" ... and download 1.8.26_beta

  • #1455

    What Miatog said. Exactly the same

  • #1454

    Yeah, mine isn't working either.  Please help, Dridzt!

  • #1452

    Did 5.0.4 break this for anyone else? The only thing I get from it now is the minimap button and all the info when I hover over it. The digsite listing, TomTom arrow, and artifact listing are all missing for me. I try to shift+left click on the minimap button but nothing happens.

  • #1465

    i'm experiencing that too.  when i go to minimal mode it kind of works.
