If you wish to report a bug or have a feature suggestion, please file a ticket at the development site;
responses to tickets will always be faster than posting comments.

Upgrading:
Users upgrading from v1.8.11 or earlier need to fully exit the game and restart, a simple reload won't work as there's been new files added.

If you have an old version of Archy (a version prior to 1.8) please delete the addon from your Interface\AddOns folder first then install it

If you would like to help translate Archy into your language, please visit http://wow.wowace.com/addons/archy/localization/

- We need a couple new phrases localized before tagging a release.
- Add an option to hide the new Crate button, same as the Survey one has.

- Change the way we calculate MAX_ARCHAEOLOGY_RANK so that it's always in line with the expansion available to the player.
- Solves the issue with Archy showing prompts to visit a trainer while at 525 in pre-MoP patch.
- Issue is fixed for any accounts that haven't bought a previous expansion as well.

Bugfixes:
- One-time error for fresh installation 'attempt to index local "races_frame" (a nil value)'

v1.8.22
-------
Features:
- Add a cooldown display to Archy's Survey Button.
Bugfixes:
- Fix keybind conflict with Elephant (Elephant should also choose less generic globals to avoid clashing with other addons)
v1.8.21
-------
Bugfixes:
- Only warn once per session if an incompatible TomTom setting is detected.
v1.8.20
-------
Bugfixes:
- Fix so overal progression and solved counts remain consistent.
Crossing any portal in the game (instance or otherwise) invalidates the client Artifact History who woulda known...
- Some more internal changes, nothing visible for users.
v1.8.19
-------
Features:
- Use a barfill background for rare and common artifacts progress tooltip.
- Some internal changes, no visible changes for users.

Bugfixes:
- Detect and offer to reset incompatible TomTom setting (workaround for ticket #384 until it can be fixed properly).
v1.8.18
-------
Features:
- Improve frame initialization. The distance indicator and survey button should now always show if Archy lists were visible on last logout / reload.
- Additionally the site distances will not show as '999999' until the player moves after a reload or fresh logon.
- Code cleanup: remove duplicate function that wasn't being called anywhere.
- Internal changes to make the "Toggle Archy" keybind behavior consistent with clicking the LDB/minimap icon (keybing method would fail to properly show the distance indicator at times)
- Improve the interaction between LDB tooltip and combat status.
The tooltip will now hide if the player enters combat (previously it would not show if in combat but would stay visible if it was shown before combat started)
Bugfixes:
- Ticket 382: It is now possible to change / copy / reset profiles when the source and destination profile have different frame styles "Graphical" vs "Minimal".
An automatic /reloadui will happen if needed to spawn the respective secure frames.
- Ticket 383: Modify the map data caching a little to correct an elusive digsite list initialization error.
- Stop the artifact and digsite frames from 'snapping' randomly back to their initial location when the user drags them to re-arrange on screen.
- Ticket 380: Prevent and try to correct corrupted dig site stats saved variables.
v1.8.17
-------
Features:
- Keep the distance indicator from completely disappearing when the survey button is visible and undocked so users can find the anchor to move it around.
Bugfixes:
- Prevent taint from moving the survey button in combat.
- Prevent taint from changing some Archy configuration options in combat as well.
- Update the digsite cache when users toggle the 'filter by continent' option on the tooltip so it can refresh 'on the fly' and show all continent data without a reload.
v1.8.16
-------
Bugfixes:
- Audio and text alerts not firing for subsequent solves of the same common artifact after the first time it's solved during a game session.
- "Mummified Monkey Paw" rare Tolvir project not getting counted as solved in overall progress LDB tooltip.
v1.8.15
-------
Bugfixes:
- Audio and text alerts not working when 'include keystones' option is selected and there's enough keystones to solve in the player's inventory.
- Archy digsite and artifact lists initialization when logging or reloading in combat.
v1.8.14
-------
Features:
- Add a line with cumulative rares/common artifacts solved across all races to the archaeology overview LDB tooltip.
Bugfixes:
- Change Archy delayed initialization from PLAYER_ALIVE to QUEST_LOG_UPDATE to solve issues with failed Archy initialization when reloading interface (/reloadui)
- Change Archy caching of map data to after PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD to possibly prevent a conflict with BigWigs module enable.
v1.8.13
-------
Features:
- Improve easy cast survey (double-right-click to survey). Temporarily suspend 'click to move' when Archy is shown if it was enabled, restore it when hiding Archy.
- Improve battlefield mini map digsite blobs. No longer necessary to toggle Archy if the mini map wasn't visible.
- Add an option to prevent Archy automating the display of digsites on worldmap/battlefield map and minimap tracking.
v1.8.12
-------
Features:
- Additional LDB tooltip mode: Overall Archaeology progress; click the Archy tooltip header to alternate.
-- Added a hint on LDB tooltip for interactive (clickable) regions.
-- Added an artifact database (current for 4.3.2) and artifact name localization through LibBabble-Artifacts-3.0.
-- When showing the Overal progress tooltip click a race name to show the rares missing for that race.
-- Click on an artifact name from the missing list to get the project spell link.
- Toggle minimap digsite tracking, worldmap and battlefield mini map digsite blobs alongside Archy; use '/archy stealth' or shift-click LDB if you want to hide onscreen lists but keep Archy active and blobs showing.
- Don't update the skill bar if the toon doesn't have Archaeology.
- Re-add digsite tracking on battlefield mini map when Archy is active.
- Do not easy-cast survey if the player has a fishing pole equipped to avoid breaking fishing addons.
- Better handling of combat status for easy-cast.
- Middle click on LDB/minimap icon can be used to toggle the Archaeology UI instead of only to show it.
Bugfixes:
- 'dig sites frame gone missing'; this would happen if the player logged on after having toggled 'show digsites' off from the world map in the previous session.
- 'error on logon' for ptBR game client; in the process pulling in updated LibBabble-DigSites-3.0 ptBR translations by Jizar and Sapolau.
- Play 'ready to solve' sound and/or announce once per artifact for the session instead of once per race.
- Delay loading ArchaeologyUI to solve an issue with missing race icons on Blizzard Archaeology frame.

v1.8.11
-------
Bugfixes:
- Error when Archy is enabled on a character that doesn't have the Archaeology profession.

Quite satisfied

I like the way the addon looks and have been using it since its release. The option of rescaling the windows is a nice touch and have no issue with its on screen appearance since I use a 24 inch wide screen flat panel monitor.

I went from a older version (1.6.3) to this one and pleasantly surprised for the most part. However I did get a error on logging in. I uninstalled the previous version. As seen by BugGrabber, English client, American server.

1x Archy-v1.7b7\Archy.lua:2033: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'surveys' (a nil value)
Archy-v1.7b7\Archy.lua:2806: in function <Archy\Archy.lua:2725>

AceAddon-3.0-10 (Ace3):628: in function <Ace3\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0.lua:621>

---

Other than that I see no other errors.

Some suggestions to consider.
First I have a toon who is max skilled and since I know that toon is max skilled I don't see a need to display the skill progress bar anymore. Perhaps you can have an option to disable it for the maxed skill toons.

Secondly I undocked the distance indicator dot and find the position as it is not to my liking. Unless I missed it somewhere can you put in the option to make it movable to anywhere on the screen?

And a suggestion is a timer. I find myself reaching a position often before the Survey timer is done. Is it possible for you to use the distance indicator with a timer on it? Something like using the rim of the distance dot with a timer ticking off to show you can cast the survey again? As it is I have the Blizz shovel icon on my action bar somewhere to show when to cast it again. The double right click is a nice touch and I like it very much.

Sorry to hear about your account. Hope you get it resolved soon. By the way a Authenticator is a nice option to consider having

The previous version of Archy was perfect for my needs. Several rather simple and unadorned lines of text telling me exactly what I needed to know - where to dig, and how far along I am in each project.

The new version however is something different entirely. It's massive (scale), full of many different icons, textures, progress bars, containers, borders, text outlines, etc.

I've messed with the settings as much as I can to try and make the new one look like the old one, but once you turn off the backgrounds, textures, and text outlines and shrink it down to the original size the text is pretty much illegible.

So, would you be willing to give us a setting that lets us decide what it looks like (Previous version vs. new one)?

Either way, thank you for this addon as it's been of great benefit to me in leveling my Archaeology. I look forward to seeing it continue to develop and flourish.

Agree completely, the new version is horrible and to me utterly unusable. An excellent addon turned unusable cos of adding to much crap to it, the kitchen sink is not needed...

Actually came here today to ask if there is any hope of getting a "mini" version with basicly what it had from the start, the range indicator and the LDB displays, the rest is just bells, whistles and the kitchen sink and only makes the addon worse imo.

For now im just sticking to an old version, but it has a few bugs.

I am inactive presently mainly due to my account being hacked. Once I get it back and everything is sorted, I'll continue development.

I have a couple of things still left to do on the current version and then I will release it. It will have the text-based (or minimalist) style as an option.

Just adding a me too to this error report. I get it every time I log in. Not sure if everyone does or just some of us, so I figured I'd toss in a post. I'm in the EU, but using English version. Not sure if there's separate localization for UK English vs. US.

Edit: Also a vote for tracking of which items we've found and not. Would be great if it were for commons as well as rares and epics, for us completists. Since you can access the number of times something's been found, I guess it'd be easy to make it figure out what you've gotten in the past as well.

Do you have a map adon or tomtom?
Just Mapster

When you have gotten the 3rd frag it should give you a tex notify of were the next node is and auto track the new place.
That works fine - I mean it doesn't record the "node" on the map with a blue dot like it does the first two

Last (3rd) node not recording?

Hmm, maybe I'm imagining things, but it seems Archy doesn't record the last (3rd) node when collecting fragments in a given site.

Am I doing something wrong (or perhaps smoking something bad), or is this a bug?
