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 also having the problem where the Dig Site and Artifacts list is moving to the top left side of the screen whenever I re-log. I lock and unlock the frames and I still can't move it. This only starting happening with 1.6.
  • #261
    did someone tryed this?

    is it steal your acc? :D
  • #265
    It works perfectly and fills your Archy.lua with nodes.

    I love it.
  • #324
    I can't get that one to work, just ends up in a "service unavailable" error after it's loaded for ages.
  • #258
    Sorry if this is dumb, but how exactly does the distance indicator work?
  • #313
    i'd like to ask the same thing. the little green box in the middle of the screen, which never changes colour no matter what the survey instrument is flashing. is it a work in progress or should it be doing something?
  • #257
    I luv this. But 2 days ago the Digsite ans Artifact lists moved to the upper left screen over my character portrait and it will not move. I tried reset, moved my portrait, etc etc but no luck.
  • #259
    Right click the Archy icon on your minimap. That should unlock the frame so it may be moved.
  • #260
    That doesn't work
  • #263
    Got the same problem, a tad annoying.

    Tried MoveAnything to see if it could help, but no luck.
  • #255
    Very nice addon. I've had the luxury of watching it as you've consistently added functionality via the Curse Client.

    Keep up the good work!
  • #256
    White seems to be if that is the first time you've ever completed that particular artifact and gray is if you've done it at least one other time. It is useful to determine which types you want to complete first for achievements.
  • #253
    Is there a slash command for enabling/disabling the digsite boundaries on the minimap? I have a macro set up to quickly enable/disable the digsite and artifacts lists as well as the digsite icons on the minimap. I'd love to be able to enable/disable the disgsite boundaries as well with it.

    Cant move the text that appears top left screen.
  • #251
    Well I got the thing installed..I love it but I'm running into it not showing nodes on the minimap(or they'll just disappear). I'm running Mappy for my minimap, I read what you said about adding the items to their protected list...but I cannot find a "protected list" anywhere with Mappy. In game, addons folder or is Mappy just something that this addon is not going to work with?
