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

    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.

    spoke too soon. 1.7 worked for a bit, but then i dropped back down to 5fps again.

    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.
  • #359
    I don't have the TomTom addon installed either but it gives me the option to check/uncheck the option to "Enable TomTom integration"

    Try updating the archy addon if you haven't already.
  • #361
    Updated to latest version. the message doesn't come up anymore thank God. So no need to worry about the TomTom integration.. which btw still doesn't let me check/uncheck :)
  • #354
    It would be awesome to see which artifacts are missing in each of the cultures (rares and commons).
  • #353
    Can you update the CreateFrame call for the arrow with a frame name? I use a mod to collect the buttons from the minimap but can't add an exclusion for frames without names.

    Line 1102 - Build 1.7b6:
    local arrow = CreateFrame("Frame", "ArchyArrow", poi)
  • #370
    Which addon are you using that collects the buttons?
  • #352
    tried the latest release, getting the following error:

    Date: 2010-12-30 12:27:53

  • #351
    is there a /toggle command to show and hide the interface that im not seeing?
  • #345
    Could you put the default position to the center maybe. It's coming up way too high in the top left corner of my UI. Trying to figure out how to move it now.
