LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70100-1.0.0-2016-10-26
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.

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>

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.

Keep up the work on a great mod!

@EastAngel
It's not an issue with Cart. I have been using both Lightheaded and Cartographer in my UI without trouble for a long time.

When you grab someone elses mod's (as you mentioned you had done) it is a good idea to delete your WTF files so you start fresh. Old saved variables can cause strange troubles.

But...

If you use AlphaMap to make the map small, and be able to see through it.
Cartographer can do that.

?

thats the new one, sorry for it being on curse. its a see throu map mod. very helpfull because u can have it up and still run around and quest with it on... TomTom wont work with it either. atleast tahts what one of the posts on here says...

hope it helps... its not much of a problem but u cant run around with world map hogging the screen.
Well, there are other solutions. I would suggest getting the latest version of Cartographer from files.wowace.com. Also, you don't need AlphaMap if you're using Cartographer, it has this functionality built it. I suspect the issue is with those two mods, not with LightHeaded.

TomTOm works just fine with a Cartographer based map.

it turned out that it was cartographer that was somehow making it stuff up... working lightheaded + cartographer + alpha map = whiped map... it only seemed to be when lh was working and syncing with cart that it would whipe the map

im just wondering if u know anything on how to fix this, because i love both add ons(altho alpha map more) if u cant. no probs. ill just ditch cartographer...
Unfortunately, I have no idea why this would happen. LightHeaded doesn't do anythign with the mapping system, and only calls things on demand from the quest log panel that appears. What is Alpha Map? I'm not familiar with that addon.

Is it possible for you to direct me to where you've downloaded Cartographer and Alphamap, so I can test this for myself?

Thank you.

does it show like on the "Item tooltips, and using the /lh bgalpha 0.5" picture above?
cuz that was what i'm looking for.. and coop with tomtom coords at the same time.. if possible

edit: now it wont coop with gatherer :P fun.. not :P
1.) What won't work with Gatherer? LightHeaded has NOTHING to do with anything that comes from Gatherer, and I use both every day.

2.) Quest levels (as shown in the description) are done by Levelator or some other addon.

3.) LightHeaded doesn't "work with" other mods. They have to work with LightHeaded.

You'll need to give some more information about what you're doing. You need to unzip the file you download from this site. Inside that directory, there are a bunch of directories that begin with LightHeaded. All of these need to be placed in your AddOns folder.
