LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70100-1.0.0-2016-10-26
by: Cladhaire [More]

The last date of comment parsing is now part of the addon's filename.

Includes over 166,198 comments for more than 15,560 quests


LightHeaded is a very simple addon that displays quest information and comments from http://www.wowhead.com in game, eliminating the need to Alt-Tab when you get stuck on quest. This addon was inspired by qcomments and wowhead_quests, which both serve a similar purpose. Data is only loaded when you first request it, so you can be sure you're not using more memory than you need to.

I HIGHLY suggest using this addon with TomTom, another one of my addons (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...32-TomTom.html ). This allows you to simply click any coordinate in LightHeaded to add it to your map as a waypoint.

The following slash commands are valid:
  • /lh attach - Attaches the frame to the quest log
  • /lh detach - Detaches the frame, allows you to resize and move it
  • /lh sound - Toggles the open/close sound
  • /lh page - Toggles showing all comments on one page, or with multiple pages
  • /lh bgalpha <0.0-1.0> - Changes the alpha of the LH window background textures, so you can see the world.
  • /lh debug - Enables or disabled debug messages when loading quest databases
  • /lh config - Opens the LightHeaded configuration window
  • /lh autodetails - Toggle automatic opening of the Lightheaded window when clicking a quest in the objective tracker

LightHeaded now includes the English descriptions and introductory text for most of the quests in the game. This is disabled by default, but can be enabled for those players that are not playing in their native locale.

LightHeaded supports sending coordinates to TomTom, MapNotes, Cartographer2 and Cartographer3.

IMPORTANT: Addon authors that wish to use this API and data should
include the wowhead logo in the frame that displays this information.
They are kind enough to let me continue parsing their database, and we
owe them at least that much. Thank you.

Thanks for using my addons!

Update for new parsing script

Thanks to lunarwtr we're able to parse again, since I didn't have time
to fix the previous parser. This required some changes to the addon, but
this should get things back up and working.

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>

Fix LH waypoint set integration

- We now are able to properly reverse WowHead mapFileIds to the in-game
areaIds, so waypoints should be set in the correct zone.
- We don't know how to set a waypoint in an instanced zone, so we just
put those in the current zone
- Integration with MapNotes, Cartographer and friends always set in the
current zone.

I edited the post and added examples of 2 quests and the NPCs

However, those are just examples, the same goes for all quests (that I checked)

Same problem as sithlord89

I have same problem as sithlord89, for all NPCs in the quest log I get " location unknown"

I use the English UK local.

Examples:

Pre wotlk quest [The Madness Within]
NPC: [Shen'drala Ancient]

Wotlk quest: [Flight of the Wintergarde Defender]
NPC: [Gryphon Commander Urik]

I need a specific NPC. I absolutely cannot reproduce this issue, so I need more information so I can check the data files specifically. I have quite a number of quests and NPCs that I can access without any issue.

I need to know specifically where you are having a problem. There are NO blanket issues right now, just isolated ones that may be related.. but its a class of problem I don't have.

I got no such error text, every single WotLK quest has been giving me the message but you want an example 12458 through 12470 aren't showing up
In the version of LightHeaded, downloaded 3 minutes ago from this site.. I was able to get quest information for these quests (12458 at least). You can run the following with the LightHeaded window open:

/run LightHeaded:UpdateFrame(12458)

That will load the information for that quest, regardless of whether or not you have the quest in your log.

Are you up-to-date? You can turn on debug messages with /lh debug.

You're certainly welcome to use whatever addons you like. I prefer to have ONLY the functionality I need, which is specifically why I use Mapster and TomTom.

hi, thanks for your great addon.
On french client, Lighthead can't find any npc location. (location unknown)
i've tried without any other addon loaded, so it don't seams to be a conflict issue.
However, comments from Wowhead are working fine
