    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.

    Here's a bug fix. Solved my problem of nothing showing up.
  • #741
    THANK YOU! This worked like a charm.
  • #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.
  • #742
    Seeing as the policies unique to curse prevent me from uploading a fix (*sigh*), i'll just post the changes i made for those that want them.
  • #745
    Thank you, worked great.
  • #739
    Add me to the growing list
  • #728
    please, please, please and............yes, please :)
  • #726
    I would love this as well.
  • #724
    I too would very much like this :) I don't like the new interface at all, the plain text one was preferable. That and the errors that keep popping up made me disable Archy for now :(
