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.

How do you mean "the old one is still the one enabled". I don't understand what that means.

LH does not "support" anything.. if something broke it was in another addon. LightHeaded is designed to work with the default ques log, any other integration is done by the other addon.

Not at the moment, no.

None of these addons provide that feature. As listed in the addon description, I use Gazmik Fizzwidget's Levelator to display quest levels.

I'm not running Fubar_questsFu or any other questhelping mods. I tried running it with Cartographer disabled, and that doesn't help either. Any ideas?

Thanks for all your hard work on this otherwise stellar addon!
I don't know which version of Cartographer you are running, but waypoints are absolutely working with TomTom. Have you tried that?

I got the exact same problem the first coordinate is with a . and the second is with a , but this is only for the coordinates in the user comments; the ones from the quest giver are correct

Originally posted by Dawn
No i didn't, i just wanted to give an idea and messed up the "." instead of "," in the second coordinate.....

Well, thx anyway.

Speaking of lua errors... I just realize i blocked them, maybe i get that TomTom one posted below, too. I'll have to check that.

Edit: i just checked the spelling of coordinates in LightHeaded and .... they were indeed formatted like [33.33, 55,11] ... wich might explain the problem ? i'll try the previous version of lightheaded, maybe there was something messed up with the latest version while parsing.

Edit #2: r245 works, the second coordinate doesn't have the ","
TomTom shows up, everything works, i'll keep that one for now.

I guess you are right. Just checked FuBar_QuestsFu's .toc and it's still 20400, so not really WotLK compatible yet. It seems that the problem is in FuBar_QuestsFu then
