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]>
Date: Sat Jan 31 15:27:56 2015 +0100

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.

Nothing changed in LightHeaded. I suggest you contact the uberquest author, if they're providing support.

also making this an Ace2 mod would be great as well then we can use wowaceupdater to update it all the time.
No, this is an absurd request. Thanks.

Trying to keep all addons ace2-based because of memoryuse, as well as ease of use.

And.. if it were ace, we could use wowaceupdater to update it.
No, that's an absurd request.

could you please fix that? by what i could see, that problem is on many class quests on all classes, not only warlocks.

btw, im alliance, and i only have the alliance part of the addon, dont know if that's the problem, going to try and put the horde part also to try it out but since those quests are for both factions, it would be stupid
If you're not using the latest version (I suspect you are not, since I fixed this issue) then you should update.

No, I have no intentions of releasing the parsers. They would flood wowhead, and they would take measures to shut down my addon. Also, the parser needs to be updated any time wowhead changes their data. Also, I create new releases of the addon, specifically to include the new data. It's normally done on a regular basis, but finishing up the book cut quite a bit into my time.

Thanks.

If they match it will remind you to turn in/do your quest. I just hate it when i leave someplace and realize i could have finished another quest if i remembered too. !

P.S. hope this is an ok place to post this.
Unfortunately, something like this would be outside of the scope of LightHeaded. Sorry!

UPDATE UberQuest to 2.1.2 it does NOT work with 2.1.1

Maybe if YOU contact them, it will carry more weight that "a simple user"..

You know, author to author

Or is it that TomTom Co-ords just give general areas of Location?
They aren't my coords. The coordinates are submitted by users like you, and I cannot make them any more accurate. TomTom is as accurate as you can get, but it can only display what coordinates are given.. in this case.. the users are submitting inaccurate coordinates.

An inperfect system, I agree, but the best we have.
