LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70300-1.0.0-2017-12-19
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

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.

Re: Not sure what I am doing wrong

I downloaded Doublewide and Lightheaded and now my Quest window wont show up at all no matter what I do.

Do you have any idea of what I can do to fix this?

Edit: Well, all of the addon sites seem to be incredibly bogged down right now after the patch. I'm not sure if I am double posting or not, but my first edit did not go through so I am going to try this again. I apologize if this is a double post.

I updated nQuestlog and was able to get it to work. I do not like how it looks with the new nQuestlog. I want mine to look like yours, only the problem is that with Mazzle it will not load standalone without nQuestlog. Any help would be appreciated.

Here is what I have done to try to get it to work without nQuestlog.

Deleted old Lightheaded folders
Installed New Lightheaded folders
Installed Doublewide
Deleted nQuestlog

Logged in and it would not load my Quest Journal at all.
Logged out, installed nQuestlog and it works normally.

Is there any way I can get this to work. a Quest log or something I can install that will make my setup look like yours? I like how yours looks way better than nQuestLogs.

Please let me know if you have any idea of how to fix this. Thanks
I hope you don't mind Cladhaire...

Mazzle resets the keybinding for the quest log. If you set it up w/ nquestlog then deleted nquestlog the binding is broken.

Solution: rebind quest log to 'L' in client UI

Better solution: ask for help in the Mazzle forums if you are running mazzle and having issues with an addon used in mazzle, please.



On to the real reason i came over here...

I seem to remember lightheaded having support for cartographer. at this time, 215-again, clicking locations does not result in a waypoint being properly set in cartographer. "Something" happens but it doesn't work right.

Is cartographer support to continue or am i mistaken in the way that worked?

Either way, Thanks for the wonderful mod. Keep up the good work!

Use the default quest log, with DoubleWide. That's all I use. That's it.

The zip file is absolutely and 100% fine. Either the server, or your internet connection is terminating it before its done. It's 4.2 megs, and you need the entire thing or whatever zip program you use will choke. If you don't have 4.2 megs, you don't have the whole file.

I also have the latest doublewide and Tomtom installed.

Whenever I access my quest log, the lightheaded window shows up, along with the data in that window for the quest. Whenever I hit the arrow to go to the next page, it flashes the data for a second, then goes right back to first page.

Any ideas?

Thank you,
Scaleeone
Can you verify the version number from the top of the LightHeaded window? Can you verify that this bug happens when ONLY LightHeaded and DoubleWide are enabled? If not, please determine what addon is conflicting with it.

This used to work just fine and when I would click a quest in the tracker it would pop open a window with the standard quest info and then beside it, it would open a comments window with the info from LightHeaded.

It is usable as is which is a wonderfull thing beings you have me soooo hooked I could not possibly live without this mod but I sure hope you get it working with QuestsFu again soon just to make it that much better.

Thanks!
The API changed.. LightHeaded doesn't "work" with other addons, they have to work with LightHeaded. Please contact that author and have them update.

You are using an old version of LightHeaded. UPdate.

whenever I try to open a LIGHTHEADED zipped folder, I get this error message - "The Compressed (zipped) Folder is invalid or corrupt"

I have since downloaded Titan Panel, Gatherer and Auctioneer and had no problems with those zipped folders .... only with Lightheaded and doublewide

Cladhaire ... is it possible to email the files as an attachement?
The zip files are fine, something is causing them to be prematurely terminated. Not much I can do other than that. The server is under extremely heavy loads, as are all of the websites.

LightHeaded-215\LightHeaded.lua:70: bad argument #2 to 'format' (string expected, got nil)

Unfortunately, I have no idea when exactly that error appeared, nor what I was doing at that specific time.
I *think* I was clicking a quest from the quest tracker, but I'm not sure.


Thanks for your hard work on this addon, it's an invaluable tool and its upkeep is much appreciated

You are the only one who can answer that. In short, no. The memory is only initialized once and no real garbage is created after that point. That is just the cost of the quest data. Also, keep in mind that you'll always incur about 1/4 of that for any quest, since it has to load that portion of the data.

If you have concerns, and don't need the latest version of the quest comments, then you can revert to a pre-2.4 version. I'll be adding the LoD stuff back in later, but it really shouldn't cause much of a problem.
