    Archy is missing data for dig site Ausgrabungsstätte der Felder von Akhenet
    Archy is missing data for dig site Grabungsstätte bei Schnottz' Landeplatz
  • #780
    No one knows what that is. Please post it in some understandable/ usable format...
  • #783
    It's called another language, I'm guessing German.
  • #771
    Was awesome till it lasted. Is it discontinued already? Or in slack mode?
  • #772
    The original author lives in queensland australia which has recently been suffering from natural disasters, so I am sure something like this is a rather low priority.
    There has been on wowinterface an effort by others to maintain a bugfix edition, which if you have bothered to read down the comments would have been made pretty clear.
    Do not start accusing an author of laziness when you do not know the facts.
  • #770
    To all of those that got problems with missing display of digsites, artifacts, range indicator etc...

    I made a hard decision and deleted my saved variables files, so I lost all my settings and artifact nodes.
    But now everything is working perfectly :)
  • #769
    Using bugfix4 version, ruRu locale.
    I got an error if clicking Archy icon:

    Message: ..\AddOns\Archy\Archy.lua line 2417:
    'for' limit must be a number
    [C]: ?
    Archy\Archy.lua:4062: RefreshRacesDisplay()
    Archy\Archy.lua:2234: ConfigUpdated()
    Archy\Archy.lua:3431: OnClick()
  • #768
    i get no error messages, but since 4.0.6 the addon doesn't work at all (no display of digsites, current researches)
  • #766
    Using the latest bugfix4 version...

    Still not seeing the digsite window and artifacts window :(
    I've tried resetting windows positions, but it didn't help.
    Everything else seems to be working.

    Any ideas?
  • #767
    EDIT. Now I suddenly lost my range indicator. Haven't changed anything it just disappeared. Relogging didn't help :(
  • #765
    Since 4.0.6 my FPS drops to 1 in Dalaran Sewers when Archy is enabled. This also happens in a region between Dalaran and Wintergrasp. Memory consumption looks normal.
  • #764
    I get this error nowadays. I hpe this helps.
