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

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.

Each version of LightHeaded has 12 different addons that need to be installed.. I would suggest installing all of them each time.

Is it me or the version number just didn't change inside the program or does the download site have an old version on it?

Everything is working great, just dont seem to be able to upgrade to the latest 175
The number displayed in-game comes from when I change the main LightHeaded.lua file, not when the data files are updated. This is "correct", if not misleading.

Perhaps disable everythign but the LightHeaded addons and see what happens?
I removed LH completely and re-copyed the entire r175 to AddOn-folder, and now it works... STRANGE...

Re: Re: Outlands?

Originally posted by Cladhaire I suspect you are missing the last data file. Turn on /lh debug, and make sure you post any messages here. There could also be a parsing issue, which is only fixed by you telling me the faction/name/level of the quest that didn't have information.[/b]
I don't know how to copy from the General-Window, så I just write it here..

Example one:
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H60_Data
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H80_Data
LightHeaded: Could not load LightHeaded_H80_Data, DISABLED
LightHeaded: Could not find quest information for Burn It Up... For The Horde [61]
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H80_Data
LightHeaded: Could not load LightHeaded_H80_Data, DISABLED

Example two::
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H60_Data
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H80_Data
LightHeaded: Could not load LightHeaded_H80_Data, DISABLED
LightHeaded: Could not find quest information for Outland Sucks [61]
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H80_Data
LightHeaded: Could not load LightHeaded_H80_Data, DISABLED

Example Three:
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H60_Data
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H80_Data
LightHeaded: Could not load LightHeaded_H80_Data, DISABLED
LightHeaded: Could not find quest information for Felspark Ravine [61]
LightHeaded: Loading LightHeaded_H80_Data
LightHeaded: Could not load LightHeaded_H80_Data, DISABLED

A lvl60: Bonechewer Blood quest is OK...

Apatterns seems to point that H80 file is corrupt... But I've even tried to upgrade while the problem is here.. I've tried r171 and r175 with same result

And just for the record.... H20, H40, H60 and H80 are all enabled..

LightHeaded is not "compatible" with any quest mods, but they may choose to work in a way that works well with LightHeaded. Unfortunately my time is better spent working on improving the mod, rather than hunting down integration with an addon that isn't mine.

When I was back in "normal game", the only quests not in LH was the new ones from patch 2.3.. But now, it seems only very few are in LH...

WHy is this???

Or am I doing something wrong????

	end

	local lhframe = CreateFrame("Frame", "LightHeadedFrame", getglobal(anchor))

-- and change all others "QuestLogFrame" to "anchor"(without quote) in the file.
this will anchor LH to UberQuest if the mod is loaded, otherwise to default questlog.
just need to add the other quest logs.

Note: The LH frame wont be exactly same height as ur questlog. And you need to open/close the LH frame to update its content for the quest ur watching, but still, i can use LH with UberQuest so im pretty happy
Hi, im not really a mod maker but i love to use this mod and also love the PartyQuest mod
i tried your approach to see if it would work with partyquest as well as you did with uberquest, but could not make it work.. i dont have experience making mods

if you (or anyone else around here with some mod experience) happen to know what i should change to make this work with partyquest, would be really appreciated
i dont care if is a bit buggy as long as i can use the 2 together i would be really happy :P

(or does anyone know of a good replacemet mod for partyquest which does the same and is working with this one??)

Legal?

This is an awesome addon

i just have one question...

is it ok to use it or you can get banned? since it simplifies a lot the gameplay; isn't it like cheating?
