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!

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.

Hi there Cladhaire,

I do suffer a similar problem linking the cords highlighted by LightHeaded into TomTom. Here is my question: Is the cord (51,64) as stated in the corresponding WowHead comment in the correct format for LH to parse it? I do ask this because in LH the cord is lighlighted as [51.00, 64,00]. Although I didn't copy/paste I'm pretty sure the second decimal separator is a comma...

I don't know if this might be related but I'm using FRfr client

As stated though, it is not caused by LH for if you disable all addons but LH, the problem does goes away.
I do not have this problem and have the following installed:
Lightheaded
Doublewide
Doublewide trade skills
Tomtom
Cartographer (not Cartographer3 as the map coords/ quest help does not work with 3)
Ace3
BeJeweled
DBM (deadly boss mod)
Healbot
Omen
Recount

All my mods seem to work fine, not that I'm an expert on all but they all behave well. I do get an addon interface conflict sometimes, usually when in an instance or something else out of the norm when something is done but doesn't seem to affect any game play or addon at that moment.

Hope this helps,

KZXten

And you haven't been reading what I have been saying. I don't care if you think the ONLY addons that are "quest related" are the ones you have listed. What you are reporting is clearly the bug I've already talked about, where some addon (which may or may not ADVERTISE that it is doing so), scanning the quest log using the SelectQuestLogEntry() function. Don't believe me? Disable all other addons except those listed above and watch for yourself. I'll bet money that the page flipping stops. I've been dealing with this specific issue for over a year now, I'm quite familiar with it.

Easiest way to see, create a new character on a new server. This way your addons won't get messed up for your mains. Please do some troubleshooting, and report back.

Smile The comma within the second coord pair

Originally posted by Cladhaire

I had this one too and I think it might be, as strange as it sounds , a bug in string.format(), not in parsing comments. I found that the coord display from mapnotes showed the same bug (0.00, 0,00). Then I took a look at the code and changed LighHeaded.lua line 398 to
return string.format("|cFF0066FF|Hlhref:coord:%0.0f:%0.0f:"..qid .. "|h[%.0f, %.0f]|h|r", x, y, x, y)
That removed coordinate decimal accuracy, but also any decimal seperator, and therefore put the whole thing back to work. I do not exactly understand, why the second occurence of %0.2f in string.format() seems to give a false formatted result, maybe its some overdone localisation to a german decimal ",", but at least I can click the coordinates again.

Lightheaded w/quest help

Alrighty I know I'm new here but I have my quest help back again and after searching through the different addons after the latest patch I was lead here to see how LH worked with the quest help.

I have cartographer, not cartographer3; with Lightheaded, doublewide, Tomtom , along with a few other addons but the four listed are what gives me the desired effects that I had before the patch (in regard to log/mapping quest help). What I get in the lines of quest help is when I open the quest log I can see the suggested level of the quest and on most quests i'll get a speach bubble type thing that will map the coordinates of where you should find an item(s) or person(s).

Hope this helps!

Maybe a command line feature ie...

/lh [quest link here]

or

/lh show [quest link here]
