About Archy - Archaeology Assistant

If you care at all about my wishes, you won't download this AddOn from SolidIce: They are leeching it from the site I actually choose to put it on.

Archy is an assistant for Archaeologists that want information at their finger tips.

    Tried out your bug fix, it seems ok so far. Its missing a feature I enjoyed with the original. The option to play a sound or not when compleating a find. Also it is VERY limited in where I can move it on my game screen. Huge gaps where it simply refuses to sit, so Im stuck having it sit in locations less appealing at the moment. TY for the fix, other than what I mentioned it is working well enough. I did like that you included an option to change the size of the font. :)

    I tried v1.7b7 and didn't like the ginormous artifact list/bars, so I have reverted back to 1.6.3. Problem is, the artifact list isn't updating and I think I have narrowed it down to a certain portion of code.

    function Artifact:OnReceiveFragments(event, race, amount)
    self:UpdateRaceFrame(, true)
    lastRace =

    Any ideas on what's wrong? Is this even the problem?
  • #740
    Well, this won't exactly solve you problem for 1.6.3, but in 1.7b7 you can adjust the size of the various displays to fit where you'd like em. It's nice to shrink em down a bit.

    Hi, do you know when you will update your addon "officialy" ? Just to know !!!
  • #731
    The author of Archy was, at last contact with the community, affected by the floods in Queensland, as has been said in these comments several times. Don't hold your breath waiting for Archy to rise to the top of his priority list again.
  • #730
    As stated further down, the original author lives in Queensland, Australia which is suffering from natural disasters.
    So we just have to wait, and if others are able to dedicate their time to fixing it all well and good, but otherwise we should just wish all those in australia the best of luck and hope to hear something from the original author at some point in the future when they are in a better positon to worry about this.

  • #723
    how can i fix archy?

    Skilling archology sucks without this nice addon
  • #721
    Just wanted to say i'm still using 1.6, because from the sounds of it 1.7 changed a few things to be less than desirable and was left in a beta state for now.

    I've updated to the latest Ace3 libraries, applied fixes for the API changes, corrected some old digsite entries, and added the new ones. So far everything looks and works fine.

    As some others have expressed a preferance to 1.6, i can put up a fixed 1.6 version if there's interest in it for the short term, but i don't wish to devote time to maintaining it beyond this one off wave of fixes.
