  • #718
    Author is dealing with RL natural disasters.

    I had a similar issue, where one of my toons had no windows, my other did.

    Test it out on a toon you've never used it on, if they show up, copy that toon's profile to your main's. Worked for me.
  • #705
    I received new errors after I upgraded 1.6 to 1.7b and applied the patch, so I wiped my Archy config files and ran the 1.7b patched version, and it's working great. My only minor complaint -- the fragments window does not update when I get new fragments. It seems to update randomly, and I haven't found a way to force an update. Any tricks?

    Here's hoping the author returns and catches it up -- it's an extremely useful addon.
  • #704
    Here is an simple fix, correct the API call in Archy.lua line 1196 to:
    local raceName, raceTexture, itemID, currencyID = GetArchaeologyRaceInfo(k)
  • #699
    Good morning Curse. I've uploaded an Archy bugfix patch for 1.7b7 over on WoWInterface since I can never figure out how to associate projects together like that over here. I'm pretty sure you used to be able to...

    Most of the showstopper bugs should be taken care of, but there are still a few lingering, so be sure to read the notes. Enjoy.
  • #714
    I think if the original author comes back, it will be updated here, but WOWI is where Cidrei will be keeping his patches. Also, I tried the patch and it fixed both my LUA errors and the failure to update fragment counts that I mentioned below. Thanks for the fixes!
  • #712
    Does this mean you don't anticipate it being updated here on curse, but instead on wowinterface?
  • #703
    thanks so much for the update! :) everything was working well again ...for the first dig. I finished a digsite and the new one came up in the window but didn't have the logo of what kind of digsite it is next to it, and at the same time, I got the error below. I reloaded and the logo still didn't show. I had to port to the other continent for a sec, and when I came back, the window where you can complete each artifact came back up but not the digsite listing window. /reload brought it back up again but the logo is still missing. The minimap arrow to the closest digsite also disappeared when I ported back, and that didn't come back w/ a /reload. finishing the digsite that had no logo brought back my minimap arrow, but the next artifact for that same type of digsite (tol'vir, if it matters) was all weird colors, not just the orange/yellow color. I noticed that the digsite that messed everything up may have been one of the new ones, so maybe this all relates back to that.

  • #710
    More than likely your new digsite was just that: a new digsite. Several were added with this patch and Archy doesn't know what to do with them yet, so it just kind of freaks out. If you can get the full name of the digsite, as well as the zone, I can add it so that it doesn't occur in the future.
  • #719
    All added sites, with blobid's as I find them.

    Kalimdor (Uldum specifically):
    River Delta Digsite
    Cursed Landing Digsite
    Keset Pass Digsite - 60354
    Akhenet Fields Digsite - 60356
    Obelisk of the Stars Digsite - 60358
    Sahket Wastes Digsite
    Schnottz's Landing - 60363

    Pit of Fiends Digsite (Icecrown)
    Sands of Nasam (Borean Tundra)

    Eastern Kingdoms (Both EPL):
    Terrorweb Tunnel Digsite
    Plaguewood Digsite
  • #720
    Forgot to add races, all 7 kalimdor (uldum) are tol'vir, the remaining 4 sites added in northrend and ek are both nerubian.
  • #732
    same here, all the ones that have messed up for me are in that list.

  • #695
    Is there any chance of an option to use the pre-1.7 look of Archy? The new bar-based system takes up way too much space and lacks a lot of the functionality that I started using Archy for in the first place, like the digsite count tracker and a heads-up display of my keystones.

    1.7 is a serious step backwards in regards to usability for this addon. :(
  • #706
    It looks like the internals have changed in non-trivial ways in 1.7. However, there are "Display" tabs in the configs for both windows which should allow you to shrink it and get it a lot closer (though not the same as) the old style.
  • #700
    While I have no intention of doing so myself, assuming the internals of the 1.6 line of Archy are similar to the 1.7 line, I wouldn't think it would be hard to make the changes required to make it functional once more.

    The changes to the game were minor and mostly just caught people off guard, I think.
