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

    Yes ... you're correct ... it's working correctly once I got the sequence of keystrokes correct as you describe, thank you! However, I do agree that it is somewhat cumbersome and counter-intuitive if the keystoke sequence is not fully understood and followed. Thank you for your decison to add a toggle to disable automation, that will be most helpful.

    Nice Addon, thanks for that!!! Smile

    I'm using the Development version and have an issue with the "Show Digsite" toggle on the World Map becoming repeatedly un-toggled.

  • #1341

    This is "by design".

    The digsite tracking follows Archy enabled/disabled status under the assumption that you don't want to see digsite blobs when you're not actually doing Archaeology.

    If you want to keep the digsite blobs visible but Archy's onscreen lists hidden use Shift+Left Click on minimap icon / LDB

    or /archy stealth from the command-line.

    This will keep Archy active and the digsite blobs showing while hiding Archy's digsite and artifact lists.

    I guess there should be a user option if this feature makes it to release to allow you to decide if you want to have to manually toggle digsite blobs on/off or let Archy manage them when doing archaeology. :-)

    Maybe you could add a database of found/missing items ? Something like does.

  • #1336

    This is included in v1.8.12 and later.

    ah I need a ldb mod to have the tooltip, thanks for the replay

  • #1338

    Items on the tooltip with an asterisk are interactive.


    You can click the race to expand the missing rares at the bottom of the tooltip like shown here.

    This is one of my absolute favorite apps. It has made archaelogy much less painful, and more enjoyable. Thank you so much!

  • #1332

    I'm having a problem in which my default archaeology skill window is blank on the races page.  This is new with the most recent version.
    I really like this mod otherwise.  Thank you for keeping up with updates and responses. 

  • #1333

    Fixed in v1.8.12

    How do I get  Archy off my minmap? No matter where I put that damn little circle, my mouse cursor always seems to find it at the worst possible time and bring up the screen.

  • #1330

    Go into Archy config (from interface options or /archy config) and in General Options check "Hide Minimap Button" ??

  • #1331

    Cool Thanks!

    I'm having an issue with Archy not working for 2 alts, but works fine for the rest. I'm not sure if this is considered a bug report or what... I don't actually have any LUA errors to report, just wondering if there is something I've done wrong. I have 7 toons that do Arch, and 5 of them have no problem with Archy. The other 2, well there isn't even an Archy mini-map icon. When I access Archy via the Interface -> Addons menu in WoW, it's blank. Command-line commands are not recognized except for /archy help. Any ideas?

    (Archy ver 1.8.11)


     Otherwise it's a great addon. It's nice to know how far I need to go from my last survey, and the ability to see the progress for each race for the continent I'm on is great. The little yellow arrow on the minimap pointing to the next digsite is perfect for us that choose to fly our own mount instead of the in-game taxi... You just point your mount in the right direction and go make a coffee. lol.
