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

    Sorry, it's "left-click" that toggles "Archy" on/off.
  • #431
    I just identified this addon to cause me huge lag / stuttering in certain instances like Magisters' terrace and some of the old Caverns of time instances. Makes me kinda sad.

    Would it be possible to add an option so that it does not display by default and the /archy stealth command causes it to display. Right now you can have it not display on load, but then must go into the config and select the show archy option to see it.
  • #424
    awesome addon thanks
  • #423
    I'm not seeing the fragment nodes get marked on my minimap when I find a digsite. I disabled all addons but archy, and it still wasn't working. I made sure I have the "show fragment nodes" box checked, and I tried using both the cross and the blue circle. Any ideas?
  • #435
    I've done the same, it worked once or twice, and it works immediately after a full restart of WoW, but after that they're not shown. I'm not picking up any LUA errors either.
  • #420
    Perhaps i'm just missing an option somewhere. Is there a way to move the little square of the Survey Distance Indicator? Finding it tends to block the survey marker, since it's located on top of me and thus of where i'm surveying.
  • #438
    sure, just drag it and lock the addon.
  • #439
    I've tried that, didn't want to get dragged. i checked if stuff was locked, it was not. Guess i'll just have to keep trying then.
  • #440
    Well works fine now. Thanks, never would have thought to try it again :)
  • #419
    It has some problem with Minimap Button Frame ( Minimap Button Frame dont stack buttons correctly after installing Archy. I have russian localization.
  • #417
    "Solve artifacts with (left click) or without (right click) keystones by clicking on the racial crest icon in the on-screen artifacts list or bind a key for a one stop solve shop" Did you change this? It worked like this on an older version but the version I have now (the latest one), left clicking on the artifact opens the Archeology window. To Solve it, you have to expand the artifact list, which takes up more screen real estate.

    I liked the way it used to be where you could right click/left click, and it didn't take up so much room.

    Also, it seems to be playing the "Solvable" sound when I have enough with a keystone but not enough artifacts alone, even though I do not have "Include keystones" checked.

    Check in your options (Ctrl + Left Click on the archeology minimap icon) under General and see if "Lock Positions" is checked.
