    I'll look into this. Thanks!
  • #1105

    I have some issues with the looks of my Archy. I used to have a kind of line under the current artifact list stating which race the artifact is of and with some little spaces to click if I wanted to use a keystone, as well as a "restore" button. Now I've used the addon with other characters as well and since then, this line is gone and it looks like on the following image on all chars using the addon (yes, of course I played around with the "profile" function, as I was trying to have Archy in the exact same way I had it on my main char. Didn't work, though, got something else).

    Now, I have no idea what I have to do to get this extra line back - it might look nicer this way to most people, but I was just used to having it like that and now its gone. Do not like :( Tried a lot of things, but somehow I seem to miss the right option. It probably is an easy thing to do and I just don't see it... Anyone got an idea?

    This is how it looks like now:
  • #1108
    The race names have been replaced with race-type icons to the far left of the artifact line - if you mouse over the icon it will tell you what race it is for.
  • #1109
    Huh. So no chance to get it back to the looks it had before? Sniff... ah well, at least this means that I wasn't too blind to find the correct option :)
    Ty for the information!
  • #1110
    Actually, since I just took this project over a couple of weeks ago I was unaware that if you hover your mouse pointer over the top-right corner of the frame, you'll see either a plus or minus button fade into view: Clicking that toggles between modes.
  • #1099
    Bug: Genertates alot of error on toons that dont have archaeology learned
  • #1103
    I'll look into this - I'd already pushed the new version before I saw your comment.
  • #1100
    Just simply disable AddOns you do not need on the specific toons.
  • #1096

    Grimsilt is misspelled as Grimesilt and causing an unknown error in the digsites frame and tomtom integration.
  • #1098
    According to and other online sources Grimesilt is correct.
    I'm not getting any errors.
  • #1097
    Probably a good idea to file a ticket on this on curseforge.
  • #1101
    Hit this today -- It says it knows no information about Grimsilt when you get a digsite at Grimesilt.
  • #1102
    Fixed in 1.8.2 - it is "Grimesilt", but there's a Blizzard bug which returns "Grimsilt" in a critical code path; I've worked around it in such a way that nothing will break when they fix this.
  • #1095
    Apologies, but 1.8.1 version does not work. I get a critical lua error that says null value, but 1.8 still works.
  • #1094
    Just wanted to say Thank You to Myrroddin for all his work on keeping Archy alive, and thanks to Torhal for picking it up since RL has struck. This is an awesome add-on, and I couldn't imagine doing Archaeology without it.
