  • Blacklist races so they do not appear in your artifacts on-screen list and won't be used when the artifact solve keybind is pressed
  • Sound triggers for when you have enough fragments and/or keystones to solve an artifact
  • A dig recorder to see where at a dig site you have successful dug
  • LDB Tooltip showing missing rare artifacts per race and overall archaeology progress

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

    Seems to be my fault, but can't load r5. Actually I'm rare on time so I'll try fix this when I'm back. :)

    Korean imported as well as zhTW (Traditional Chinese), esES too, so mexican spanish should work as well. Simplified Chinese had no translations to import and we are only left with a few untranslated things now.

    For future reference, the wowace/curseforge localization-tool allows to import lua-translation tables as they are used in old archy or the babble libs ;)

    back from awesome Weekend!

    @myrroddin please upload an alpha for testing. I'll try to do my best while using the german client to help.

    Awesome, Yoshimo, thanks! I could push an alpha of Archy to test, but I'm waiting on a few more dig site translations, if only in other languages.

    If you guys do not want to wait, let me know, and I'll push an alpha for testing.

    ... In other news, OMG, did I do some localization pruning in Alpha. Dropped almost 60 phrases, either to the new Babble, or using Blizzard's global strings, or they simply aren't in the code anymore, and never were removed.

    All old deDE strings from archy are now imported in LibBabble-Digsites-3.0.

    Dig site translations are moving to LibBabble-DigSites-3.0 instead of within Archy. I will try to find and copy as many of them from older files that I can find, but it will be slow going.

    In v1.8.1 (not available yet), I have added the new artifacts, and removed the obsolete dig sites. Further, I organized the dig site and artifact lists so they can easily be edited if Blizzard changes things again. All missing strings are accounted for, but need translating.

    Unfortunately this weekend I'll be not at home. But next week I'll test further the digsites at Outlands.

    While this test, some german-speaking questions and locally bugfixes will be answered. :) I don't want to do the addon support for Germany but I'll give all possible informations I've collected while I use this Addon. -

    Leider bin ich dieses Wochenende nicht zuhause, jedoch werde ich ab nächster Woche die Ausgrabungsstätten in der Scherbenwelt testen. Während dieser Tests, stehe ich gerne für deutsch-sprachige Fragen und lokale Fehlerbehebungen zur Verfügung. Ich möchte natürlich nicht den deutsch-sprachigen Support übernehmen, aber aller Fehler, die ich während der Nutzung von Archy selbst beheben konnte gebe ich gerne an andere Spieler weiter. ....


    <have a nice weekend>

    Das Schöne an solchen Addons ist, dass man es lokal für sich selbst anpassen kann, damit sie wie erwartet funktionieren.

    Leider dauert es immer ein wenig länger bis die Entwickler diese "Bugfixes" übernehmen. Solange kann man aber mit seiner "eigenen Version" arbeiten. Ich selbst passe mir meine Addons fast immer auf meine Bedürfnisse an und erstelle mit ein "Changelog" für die gemachten Änderungen, damit ich diese in einer neuen Version überprüfen und ggf. neu einrichten kann. Man darf einfach nicht vergessen, dass die meisten Addons ehrenamtlich geschrieben werden, die Entwickler dafür keinen Cent sehen und uns gerade mit solchen Addons ein wahnsinns Werkzeug an die Hand geben, was es uns erleichtert komfortabel einen Spielinhalt zu nutzen.

    @ myrrodin

    you're wellcome. :) Said to Drachenherz before, that some help like using the Bugtracker will take a while untill the developers push this into their updates. While that kind of projects there are a lot of other priorities sometimes. :)

    In fact, I've used Archy in 4.0 till it makes problems with latency in battlegrounds. Don't know the version I'd use at that time. :) Curse Client didn't provide an update at this time... This version is really awesome. Some minor errors but nothing that can't cure. :) I really want to help with german localization where ever it's possible. :)

    @ deutsch-sprachige Benutzer: Gerne helfe ich bei Fragen rund um Archy. Einige kleinere Fehler können locker auf dem eigenen Rechner korrigiert werden bis die Entwickler die gemeldeten Fehler alle in neuen Updates zusammengefasst korriegiert haben.
