Minimap Button Frame and other similar addons

All Minimap based frames (such as nodes, dig sites and dig site boundaries) have been prefixed now with ArchyMinimap To stop these addons from taking these frames from the minimap, add the following item to their protected items list: ArchyMinimap

James D. Callahan III:
    - Before doing anything else in TomTomHandler:Refresh(), clear the current waypoint so TomTom will be hidden/shown along with Archy's UI.
    - Logic cleanup.
    - Ensure correct visible/hidden state for survey node and digsite minimap icons.

    I've found that the dig site boundaries are not showing up in the minimap in 1.7b6, whereas they did in 1.63

    Anyone else having this problem?

    PS I really do like this addon.

    I use Minimap Button Frame ( On load, the gathered minimap buttons are fine. The first time I display Archy (left-click), I get 2 empty buttons in MBF. When I hide Archy, I get 1 empty button from that moment on. If I had to guess, I think it is picking up something Archy tried to add to the minimap and trying to display it as a button.

    This relates to the arrows and nodes being gathered up. You can add an exception for the nodes(ArchyMinimap_POI) but the arrows dont have a frame name. If you look at my post below you can change the line and add an exception for the arrows (ArchyArrow) in game.
  • #368
    I probably should mention I am running 1.7b6.
  • #366
    How do yuo move frame? it's stuck at the left upper corner.
  • #373
    you can go into config options, by doing /move config then you can switch the anchor to bottom right or left (it defaults to top left). then, if you're using 1.7beta you can move the window anywhere you want.

    if you're using 1.63 then you can only move it vertically and it's in the same general place, using /move config
  • #374
    edit: i'm confused--been playing with Move Anything. Sorry about that, is what i get for trying to do this from memory.

    /archy config then go into either Artifacts or Dig Sites then to the Display Information tab and select where you want the anchor to be.

    With archy activated I have very low FPS (~5) in instances like Magisters' Terrace and Caverns of Time. Could you please take a look at that?
  • #365
    I noticed that too, with version 1.63. Had to uninstall and install latest 1.7 beta, and that fixed it.

    However, I notice now that I cannot specify what font I want to use for either the header or data in the digsite and artifact window. I don't mind Friz Quadrata, but it's not in theme with my UI.
  • #372
    spoke too soon. 1.7 worked for a bit, but then i dropped back down to 5fps again.

    •A dig recorder to see where at a dig site you have successful dug and many more features

    I keep getting "Archy: TomTom doesn't exist... disabling it" message in my chat window every time I survey. I do not have TomTom addon installed and dont plan to install it just for the "added functionality". Is there a way to prevent those messages?
  • #357
    1) /archy config
    2) Navigation
    3) Uncheck "Enable TomTom integration"
  • #358
    I'm assuming because I don't have TomTom even installed, It won't let me check/uncheck "Enable TomTom integration". Atm there it's not checked. But still giving me repeating message.
