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.

Blank screen

I downloaded the new version of lightheaded and now the screen is blank. On every quest I have, the lightheaded page is blank except for "page 1 of 1" and scroll bars. I tried deleting, download again. Checked all the files to be sure they are all in my Add on folder. It worked before! BTW... I love lightheaded, use it all the time. (Until lately). Any ideas?

Re: Re: Re: Great addon, but problem with links.

I didn't have any addons on my Hunter that I don't use on other characters, and I didn't download any new ones during maitenence on Tuesday (They worked before, didn't work after). It was very strange, and as I said I had attempted running them alone before and that didn't work, but it did this time. Also, normally when that happens I can pinpoint the other addon that's causing interference.

Oh well, it was probably user error anyway Much thanks for your time.
It has happened to me (well i've been unable to click on some links.. clicking multiple times seemed to make it work) so I understand how frustrating this can be. Hopefully it behaves until I can get a new version out ! :P

Thumbs up Re: Re: Great addon, but problem with links.

Do you have any addons that are loaded on your hunter, and not on your other characters?

First off, I'd like to say thank you for making Lightheaded and TomTom, both have made my entrance into the Outlands much easier.

That said, a problem recently sprung up where I am unable to use any of the Lightheaded links. It simply does not register my mouse click on the links, but everything else including the Quest Log, the WoWhead.com ad, and the minimize/close buttons work fine. I have attempted reinstalling the addons, and running them alone and seperately with no other ones working, but to no avail. Any tips would be appreciated.

Edit: Addon works for every character, except for my 62 Hunter in the Outlands.

You need to ensure you get the full 5.5 megabyte file. The zip that is posted in not corrupt.

Why would I do that? I mean, I'll consider anything.. but what would be my motivation behind moving to one of the other database sites?

I am not affiliated with wowhead.com, but they are aware of the project and I have not been asked to shut down the project officially.

What he said :P
