LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70000-1.1.0-2016-09-05
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.

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.

There are a few problems with this:

1.) You don't tell me where you got Cartographer, and what version SPECIFICALLY you are using. There is Cartographer1, Cartographer2, Cartographer3 and there are multiple versions of each available. I do not officially support Cartographer. If you want waypoints on your map, that is specifically what I wrote TomTom to do.

Please download and test it with TomTom. Things should work just fine with them, and then you can contact whoever writes whichever version of Cartographer you are using to look at the problem. Are you getting any error messages?

2.) Please don't tell me "I updated using WoWMatrix", that doesn't tell me anything. WowMatrix regardless of how convenient it is for you is a drain on the addon community and makes users absurdly lazy, especially considering my addons. I choose to post my addons here, and WowMatrix sidesteps my decision.

If you want to report an issue, you should quote the specific version number that is shown on the configuration screen.

Thanks, please post with more information.

Nope. Without you telling me specifically what version of Cartographer you are using, I don't know what to tell you. I don't like or support their use, which is why I provide TomTom. Previous versions of Cartographer2 used to work fine, so long as the waypoints module was enabled.

Please provide more information.

The only time you will see 1 decimal point accuracy is if the number on the right hand side of the decimal separator is a 0. This is just a cosmetic issue that I will fix in the final version. Any other number will be displayed as two digits, since the fractional part is multiplied by 100.

It's not the only change that needs to be made, and this is how it should be done. I've commited these changes locally:

Code:
	local function makecoord(x)
		local xi, xf = math.modf(x)
		xf = math.floor(100 * xf)
		return xi .. "." .. xf
	end

	-- Href the coordinates
	comment = comment:gsub("(%d%d?%.?%d?%d?)%s*[, ]%s*(%d%d?%.?%d?%d?)", function(x,y)
		local xt,yt = makecoord(x), makecoord(y)
		return string.format("|cFF0066FF|Hlhref:coord:%s:%s:"..qid .. "|h[%s, %s]|h|r", xt, yt, xt, yt)
	end)
This should always work, and always be correct. It's unfortunate that WoW has this odd thing happening with the numeric locales, but this should get us around it without an issue.

You should have accuracy up to two decimal places and they will work properly in lhrefs. For what it's worth, the way it LOOKS doesn't matter in the least, it's the fact that the coordinates itself that are stored within the hyperlink were wrong. This should fix that entirely.

Thanks for the help!

That's math.. if it fails, I may just stab myself. Let me know if this works.
Looks like this
Code:
[61.2, 71.2]
Wich means it works, too. However, changing the whole thing to 0.1f did it exactly the same way.

. Look at my post below, just incase you didn't noticed the edit, that might help, too.

Just get rid of the string.format entirely. You can make the makecoord() function look like this:

Code:
	local function makecoord(x)
		local xi, xf = math.modf(x)
		xf = math.floor(100 * xf)
		return xi .. "." .. xf
	end
That's math.. if it fails, I may just stab myself. Let me know if this works.
