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.

    I am having a problem with the latest build, everytime I survey I get spammed with "Archy: TomTom doesn't exist... disabling it"

    OKay that's nice its disable, BUT WHY KEEP SPAMMING ME?! D:
  • #328
    I have a fix for this coming in the next version.
  • #326
    5 stars for lack of a 10 stars option.

    THIS is what the Archaeology UI should look like.
  • #323
    Can there be an option to disable one click solving and/or add a optional confirmation dialog. Using it for the first time, having it crammed over my UI I ended up wasting artifacts I've been saving up to get rares once I get sufficient skill.

    Not very useful if all your work and fragments are wasted just trying to set it up.
  • #325
    Blacklist the races you are saving at the time. When it's time to spend the fragments, unblacklist the race.

    If the displays are too big, change the scale for both the artifacts and dig sites list in the Archy options.
  • #321
    Would it be possible to list which (known) artifacts are left to be discovered for a specific race?
  • #320
    1.7b4 is out. This will be the last beta release for today now that I have got the curseforge repository stuff under control (I think).
  • #316
    1.7b2 can't find LibDBIcon because ToC path is incorrect.

    It's actually located at:


  • #317
    now that I've fixed LibDBIcon and can actually see the update...woah! this is really going places.
  • #318
    I'm starting to use the pkgmeta and curseforge repository stuff.
    It should now be working correctly. *fingers crossed*
  • #315
    Personally, the first impression this addon gave was great. I haven't had any of the errors others have mentioned. It has definitely made Archaeology a lot less cumbersome. Mad props to the author.
  • #311
    I have a couple of questions:
    Does this addon have any major conflicts with addons that modify the minimap - like Carbonite? Does it support the Carbonite Tom-Tom or only the Tom-Tom addon?
  • #319
    It supports Carbonite's TomTom emulation.
  • #306
    I cannot move the frames. It's placing them right over my portrait, and no matter how big I make the font, I cannot get it to move it.

    (I've tried both with and without the lock position box checked (just in case it was reversed))
  • #322
    Annoying as hell to have everything crammed over my portraits and when I tried to get it out of the way, I ended up solving fragments I've been saving for rares when I hit a high enough skill level.
