    What exactly is Blacklisting supposed to do? I thought it was to "shut off" a particular dig site or race, but I keep getting sent to those site. Any Insite you can give would be appreciated.
  • #1165
    I got a suggestion. I would like Archy to X out locations you've already been, preventing the tiring, unending feeling of going BACK to a place you've already been to before.

    Basically, like a checkbox. When all locations are dug, it will reset. Make this an optional feature.
  • #1167
    The list of places to dig is randomly generated by the Blizzard servers, and is not an internal calculation in Archy.

    Every time you finish one dig site, the list gets updated automatically.

    Created a profile just so I could tell you how much I like the seamless integration with TomTom, esp how when you hide the Archy windows it also hides the TomTom arrow. It's an example of perfection all other addons should strive to achieve.

    A quick suggestion for a feature, or perhaps i haven't looked through the supporting information enough to find it yet. Is to be able to scale the window that pops up when you hover over the mini map icon, or better yet the ability to toggle its display on and off either with something like shift+ right click or an option in the config panel.

    Right now I have to completely disable Archy everytime I want to use a keystone to complete a project, because otherwise pressing the 'Solve' button doesn't do anything. But apart from that, it does make Archeology a lot less tedious!
  • #1166
    I'm having the exact same problem. Was driving me nuts trying to work out why I couldn't use them. Disabled Archy and was able to use them again. Now I'm going nuts doing Arch without Archy loaded :(

    There's no error, when I try to use keystones with Archy loaded, it simply doesn't work. Any ideas?

    user Lilbet:

    Torhal and I went over your ticket, which is good you filed. A few things to note, which probably have a huge impact on why things are not working for you.

    You have Gatherer, GatherMate, and GatherMate2 installed. Pick one, as they are mutually redundant. I suggest GatherMate2, as it is the newest and most up-to-date. GatherMate does not even work for Cataclysm; Gatherer and GatherMate2 do, but again, having both is pointless.

    Also, you have two different "auto grats" addons. AutoGratz and AutoGrats. Pick one, preferable the newest.

    Silver Dragon and NPC Scan do the same thing. Pick one.

    AVR is dead, and hasn't worked since 3.2 or 3.3. Uninstall it, as Blizzard killed this addon dead.

    Further, you have BossTactics installed, with no Cataclysm level boss support.

    Between BossTactics, AVR, and that your installed version of Archy is 1.8.1 (which was released June 3, and has been updated since, ALL for Cataclysm) I suspect you are playing on a private server at Wrath level. Unfortunately, private servers are not supported, as they violate Blizzard's Terms of Use.

    One other thing: strangely, your ticket claims that the Curse Client is not updating your addons, yet you filed a ticket under Archy. If you are playing on a private server, that explains much.

    How do you enable a dig-sight after you have disabled it via right clicking on the dig-sight's list?
  • #1159
    Archy won't work at all for me, I get 6 lua errors on login and it does nothing.
  • #1162
    That does not help diagnose the issues. Please post the bugs on the tracker link.

    Since 4.2 dropped, Archy has brought my system to a creep any time its loaded. I can't use it, whatsoever. Huge memory leak somewhere, I assume.
  • #1172
    Same thing is happening to me. I've only recently returned to Warcraft, deleted and installed newer versions of my addons and when Archy is loaded my frames drop to 5, disable it and its back to 100-150. Very bizarre.
  • #1180
    I am having this same issue. It only happens on one character so far, another character is able to use it just fine. WoW is 100% unplayable on characters where this bug arises.
  • #1157
    Any idea how long it will take for an updated version of archy for 4.2?
  • #1154
    I cannot solve projects with Keystone..Please fix it.. i adore this addon but this bug is very annoying
