LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70200-1.0.0-2017-07-31
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.

LH will have some large changes coming, i'll have to figure out how best to integrate a search feature. It would be best if you could provide with details specs about what/how you want it to work.

TomTom's getting a massive revamp at the moment, I'm going to try and address it today or tomorrow.

I see this a lot in the comments. It may be that people are just mistyping a period instead of a comma, but it results in no link.

Perhaps someone can come up with a perl regexp to convert any possible coord format into X and Y to feed to DougDoug, er, I mean TomTom, and post it here or to Cladhaire. For instance whether the numbers are with comma or period as decimal point, and whether space or comma is used to separate the numbers.
Its much worse than that, and Perl regexp would do nothing, since we dont have access to true regexp. People post coordinates like these:

50,25 - Means x = 50.0 y = 25.0
50.0, 25.0 - Means x= 50.0 y = 25.0
55,25 65,43 - Two sets of coordinates

Etc.. the list goes on and on. There's no way I can intelligently cover both of them without extreme amounts of works. I'm _trying_ but its difficult.

No horribly easy way to tell the difference between the many different formats, but I'm working hard on getting a better solution pushed out. Thanks.

Thats the best reason you can possibly have :P I normally update on Tuesdays, but I'm trying to work some other features in. Perhaps I'll get around to branching properly and having things set up so I can do both =).
