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 is a text file in the root of the .zip file. It explains how the addon needs to be installed.

In short, all of the LightHeaded directories (there should be many) need to be in your addon folder.

The good news is that I found a way to find the quests (or at least most of them) from Thunder and Timeless. I've running a new scrape for processing.

The bad news is last time I ran the update, there was an issue parsing the quests. That can take either no time, or quite a bit of time. We'll see how it goes when I'm able to look at the output of the run. I wouldn't expect anything in the short-term, but things may be moving in the right direction.

My comments indicate quite clearly that I am still here. I'm working on a solution, but the quests are not searchable on wowhead. That means I cannot include them in an automated way.

If someone wants to collect a list of the numerical ids that need to be fetched, I can try to iterate that list, but it would need to be kept up to date.

Is the addon still updated or has the author lost interrest in it?
Reason for asking is no Thunder Isle or Timeless Isle comments included.

Can you reproduce this? GetQuestName() shouldn't return nil.

Thumbs up One of the Grateful

I can second any and all grateful comments. I have used this add-on for a long time. I wish longer because I originally started using Curse when I started playing then I found Wow-Interface and was looking for something to keep me from having to switch in and out to Google something I needed on a quest. This is one of those amazing add-ons I just love to have around. Thanks so much Cladhaire and I hope your studies are going fine!

First off, I want to thank you very much for this addon. It's one of the most useful addons available and has saved me frustration countless times.

I do have a question. When I click a quest on the quest tracker to open the quest pane Lightheaded doesn't switch to the quest I clicked. The quest pane opens to the last quest I looked at in the quest pane. I have to click the quest again to get Lightheaded to switch to the quest I'm wanting to see. I hope that makes sense. Is there something I can do to fix this? Not a major issue, I'm just curious. Thanks!

Thumbs up One of the greatful....

You are doing a great job with this addon. Definitely look forward to updates but you need to take care of you first. I have yet to run into any quest that wasn't updated in your addon that I couldn't figure out on my own or just went to WoWhead myself and looked up. Good luck on your PHD!

Lightheaded

Thanks claidhare for this addon stumbled across it quite a few years ago and love it. When i saw the alarmist quote about going down was quite sad as its helped me through a lot of tough quests through the game where blizz's descriptions were a little fuzzy. Putting this post up to say a huge thanks to you mate and good luck with your Phd as the people who support this addon would probably agree we know that the feild your doing will benefit from you

Cladhaire, there are plenty of people who really do value your time and effort in putting together great addons for the community. And I know getting a 'Thanks' is a rare event... That said, thank you for your efforts!
Thanks, I love the support you guys have given me over the years =) I'm in a particularly tough spot at the moment working through the final stages of my PhD while working full time, but it's worth it =)
