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.

I cannot reproduce this. In particular you should try clicking the NPC coordinates by clicking on the NPC name in the quest information. Those are generated and stored by LightHeaded and work well to test interaction between the addons.

However, i can't add waypoints manually with Ctrl+righclick on the worldmap, neither. It just zones out to the next bigger zone instead, aka performing a "right click" and ignoring Ctrl. Might be a bug with Mapster ?
This is a known bug, and affects a number of addons right now. I'll work to get it fixed, but its not very high priority considering you can still add them manually.

Just shot out a small update that should help some of the issues with linkifying coordinates in user comments. Let me know if you see any odd behavior.

You have to ensure it is installed correctly. There is a readme.txt file that explains how it shoudl be installed. There are really six different addons which all need to be installed (included in the single zip file). You need to make sure each of them is visible in the Addon selection screen (from the character selection screen). Then, you simply open your quest log.

Thanks.

By the way, I'm not sure I'm clear on the color codes for the Lightheaded Data sets. The main Lightheaded item is colored yellow, but each of the Data_A, B, etc., are all in red. What does the color indicate in this menu? This is the case for Atlasloot Enchanced as well. Thanks in advance for the insight.
In this particular case it means that those addons are load-on-demand and aren't automaticlaly loaded by the addon system. LightHeaded loads them dynamically as they are needed.

It means the version number for DoubleWide is out of date. This is just a reminder that you shoudl look for a new version when it comes out. The addon still works absolutely and 100%. You can click "Load out of date addons" to load it.

No, it "just works". Is it listed as out of date? Do you have Load out of date addon checked, if so?

Do you have any insight to share on the Doublewide compatibility issue? Getting that fixed too would be a godsend.

Thanks again.
There are none. I downloaded Doublewide and it worked perfectly, as expected. You have to say whats wrong if you are seeing something different.
