    You use an LDB display and disable the minimap button from Archy options Tongue out

    (and control the LDB display tooltip from the LDB display options)

    I updated to the beta version (1.8.27-beta) and the follwoing problems still occour: No 'survey' button with range light. No in game dig site and artifact windows (like in screen shot) I'm also not recieving any error messages from it.  When I updated to the beta version I also noticed it pushed the blizz objectives tracker about 1 1/2 inches left so its kindof obtruting into my visual real estate more than usual. I am on 5.04 live realms and also using Tom Tom for tracking.. Please help, I love this addon so much!

  • #1482

    ok so the windows just randomly started appearing with the button about 20 mins after i post this go figure. However it's still pushing the objectives tracker frame inwards.

    Just a heads-up: The archy and artifacts windows don't work at all while at the Darkmoon Faire. Everything else works just fine, but the interactive windows vanish the moment you zone in and reappear when you leave the zone. I did a thorough batch of addon-troubleshooting to make sure that it wasn't a conflict or problem with bad/old addons, so it's not a big problem or anything, but it was a major head-scratcher for a good half hour or so. :)

    I am playing in english and i cannot seem to get the survey, actualy the 2 frames shown like in the first screen shot, and for me that seems to be why i use this lovely adon.

    What am i doing wrong?

  • #1474

    Do you possibly have another addon that tries to EasyCast (double-click world) something?

    Fishing Addons often have that functionality.

    Archy makes sure to only try easycast survey when you don't have a fishing pole equipped.

    Fishing addons normally try to do the opposite: easycast fishing only when you do have a pole equipped.

    However the most popular way to detect fishing pole broke with WoW 5.0.4, so my only guess is that you're using some addon that hasn't been updated properly (Archy has proper fishing pole detection for WoW 5.x)

    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.
