LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v50400-2014-01-05
by: Cladhaire [More]
The last date of comment parsing is now part of the addon's filename.
Includes over 115,267 comments for more than 9,894 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

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 comment format on Wowhead.

If you're using the API to retrieve comments and looked at fields other than
rating, date, username, and the body of the comment then you will find that
data is no longer available. However, the API has not changed, I just return
reasonable fake data for those results.

* Remove the conflict detection code from LightHeaded. Users that choose to run some of the addons that behave improperly
can determine any conflicts on their own. Addons that conflict will be listed on the LightHeaded addon description until t
hose authors resolve the issue.

* Altered the conflict detection system to be a bit more flexible. The only thing I can see tripping it currently are add
ons that actually misbehave, i.e. Armory
* Altered so clicking on a quest in the DEFAULT quest log actually does reset the page/scroll

r258 | Cladhaire-15704 | 2008-11-16 10:56:24 +0000 (Sun, 16 Nov 2008) | 3 lines

* Altered the logic of the LightHeaded display frame, such that it will remember in the same session what page/scroll location you were at for any given quest. This means if you scroll to the bottom of page 3 on a specific quest, select another one and then come back you will go back to that same location.
* Added basic detection for addon conflicts (where the offending addon is causing cyclic scans of the quest log frames). These addons can severely impact the performance of your client when using LightHeaded together with them, so a warning message is displayed.

Also, I'm afraid that would begin a new round of the 'holy war' that's happened a few times now and I'm not entirely sure I have the time or the effort for that.
Thanks for the feedback, I submitted a support ticket to Curse to get lightheaded listed so hopefully it will at least be searchable.

It would probably also bring in some additional revenue streams since you can't find this addon at all in their search engine (it can actually point back to this site if you want people to download it only from here).

Anyway, just thought I'd share this with you in case you weren't aware that your addon wasn't searchable there anymore.

Sounds like an awesome change! I haven't been able to test it to see exactly how it functions yet (don't have one of those NPC quests right now), but thanks for the 'fix'!

r337 contains an update and an option to 'fix' the NPC window when dealing with Lightheaded. This option can be accessed using /lh config, but there is currently no slash command for this option.

Basically, if LH is attached to the quest panel and the NPC model is there, it will be placed on top of the LH frame in a way that is unobtrusive. This also has the neat feature of when you have LH attached by the panel is closed, the NPC appears behind the quest log, which is a bug but I kept in because it looks awesome.

When detached, you can move the window so suck up and deal!

Hope it works for all of those who reported it, thank you for being patient.

Don't know if this has been reported or not, but ever since the "kill this named enemy" type quests had pictures added to them, it sometimes will overlap the Lightheaded comments. Here's an example screen so you can see what I'm referring to:

Then perhaps rather than wasting both of our times you could make a comment asking when the version will be updated. I'll even save you a step:

I'm having a few issues with the parser right now, and the NPC location database hasn't quite been right for a few versions now so I'm doing what I can to get them fixed before pushing out a new version.

With LightHeaded I absolutely avoid pushing out updates just for something like the version simply because at 20MiB a pop, that's a huge amount of bandwidth being consumed for absolutely nothing.

As soon as I can get the issues resolved, it will be updated.

Thank you for that! If only Blizzard had the same policy! ;-)

And thanks for taking time away from making the best mods ever to explain all that, too.

No worries. Here's a quick primer about addons in general, and about LightHeaded in particular.

There are two reasons why addons need to be 'updated' each patch. Blizzard is constantly making small (and large) changes to the addon system. In order for addons to continue functioning properly, some need to be updated.

To help support this, Blizzard has a versioning system for addons. When a 'breaking' change like this happens, they will frequently change this version number. This is why when you go to the Addon Selection screen you will see 'Out of date' on some addons, and can click the 'Load out of date addons' checkbox to load them.

Just because the version number changes doesn't mean that the addon needs to be updated immediately, many (including LightHeaded) will continue to function just fine. That is why the checkbox is there, to help with this situation.

I'm purposely slow with updating the versions of my addons, because I like to ensure there are no bugs once the addons are installed on the live patched servers. I normally wait a few days to ensure there are no bugs, and then I will update things.

----------

As for LightHeaded, you are correct in that I update it frequently to include new comments from wowhead.com. Since there's no way to communicate outside of WoW from within the addon system, all of these comments are 'parsed' from the wowhead.com site ahead of time and stored within the addon. This happens every week or so, and I have not run one for the 4.1 patch yet, simply because many of the quests won't have comments on Wowhead and it won't be terribly useful.

I'll be re-parsing soon, and updating the version number of the addon as well. Hope that makes sense.

- Jim

I am absolutely not experienced; I'm afraid I dont even know what 'new parse' refers to. I just know that new quests were added in this patch, and well, I just thought addons were always updated with these sorts of patches. I'm going to go try using LH as is right now! Thanks!

It should, but I already had load outdated checked for other addons I was using and after the patch none of them worked, they only came back after I did what I said, so I'm inclined to think it was something that needed to be reset in one of the cache files.
At least that's how it worked for me but I'm willing to defer to others who have more experience than I in these matters in case I am mistaken.
