    In case that was in response to my post, I don't use DBM :) So that's not it, or just it...
  • #476
    THis has nothing to do with your pot or I would have commented under yours... lol ;) This is an ongoing issue that DBM users have if Archy is Loaded.
  • #472
    Archy absolutely kills my framerate in TBC instances. Vanilla, LK and Cata instances are fine.

    Weird thing: if I open my map, which I have on movable mode so I can still see the rest of the game, the stuttering is gone. Obviously disabling Archy also works.

    As I saw this mentioned below, I don't use TomTom.
  • #471
    Yep getting the same Error as IceHunter. Upon Entering any Dungeon I get neverending Lua-Survey Errors.
    Also the Red Circle for the Minimap is visiable all over the screen :(
  • #470
    Getting a lua error on entry - something about a 'survey' variable being nil
  • #469
    Is it possible to move flight locations from top left corner? For those that wonder if this mod is good you will never find out if you don't try it. All I can say is great job on this mod and hope to see more features. Keep up the good work.

  • #468
    It would be nice if you could remove the graphics from the artifact list (to make it smaller), and a way to "fold it" up so it was just a single line.
  • #467
    Also, when I point to the button in the minimap a window with a scroll bar pops up - but I can never move the mouse pointer into the window to use the scroll bar since the window disappears when you move it away from the minimap button.
  • #466
    To those that experience lags / stutter / FPS drops when using Archy.
    This might actually be caused by TomTom and -- if it is -- then deactivting the "coordinate block" might help. At least that seems to do the trick for me.

    Please check / verify / comment. thank you.
  • #463
    so there's this part of the addon options to import data from ArchyData...I'm guessing that that is still in the works....?
  • #461
    When going into instances you should have the mod disable itself. Inside some instances I've had it throw errors like crazy, seems related to trying to find where you are on the minimap or something.
  • #465
    I've been having this same error. i think it is the range finder thats causing it, but thats a guess.
  • #460
    1x Archy-v1.7b7\Archy.lua:2033: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'surveys' (a nil value)
    Archy-v1.7b7\Archy.lua:2806: in function
    (tail call): ?:
    : ?

    (tail call): ?:
    AceAddon-3.0-10:514: in function `InitializeAddon'
    AceAddon-3.0-10:628: in function

    that error occurs here too.
  • #458
    Whenever I open my map my frame rate dies and the entire game lags. When I close the map, all is good.

    only happens when archy is enabled.
  • #459
    Having a similar problem myself. Archy kills my usual 60fps to 1 or 2 fps. On mine it doesn't matter whether I have the map open or closed; however, I am letting Archy interface with Carbonite, so the map is effectively always opened. I tried closing the map, but no dice.

    The other night I had to uninstall it to run an instance, but it seemed to be alright as long as I didn't have a lot of other things going on at once. However, today I'm getting the terrible lag even while just doing some archaeology digs. Uninstalled Archy and my frames are back to normal.

    I love this addon and how quickly it makes archaeology go, so I'd love for it to be able to work for me. :)
