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.

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.

(If I made a WAG, I'd say 20 or 30 pixels to the right would be great.) I have one of the window moving utilities - MoveIt - but it seems the Lightheaded frame is part of the standard quest frame and cannot be moved separately.

My problem is when I target a specific quest to do, the quest details flash in the second window and then the target line jumps to the last quest in the list and only those details show in the expanded window.
Disable all other addons, and verify that it works (it should, they're all built off the default UI), then enable addons until you can reproduce the issue. Then we can look into how to resolve it.

I don't know what you're talking about, to be completely honest. It sounds like you're using something other than the default UI.. and without knowing what it makes it difficult to help you troubleshoot.

Yes it is, I just didn't paste it on the page. I did a weekly comment update. The changelog that exists in the zip file is the one that should be used payed attention to.

I don't understand.. this doesn't change that part of the UI at all.

For all with problems with cartographer.

I use the Cargrapher from http://files.wowace.com

But when i try to use this feature of LH i get a "white noise" sqare for a second and no way point, but no one error message.

Then i try to make a waypoint with "/way 45 45" and it works. Then i make a waypoint clicking in LH and it works, and no more problems.

So if you get an error like me, just try to make first a waypoint with "/way X Y"

A greeting

It's not default in DoubleWide..
There are lots of addons that do that, this one is Gazmik Fizzwidget's Levelator, but CT_Core does it, along with others.

Clad, any thoughts on my previous post (feature request/suggestion) ?
Correct on your response.. I plan to get two things added in LH and TomTom:

In LightHeaded you'll be able to pull up a quest by qid or name/level. In TomTom you will be able to send all waypoints, or waypoints by zone to another player using TomTom. That's about the best I plan to offer at the moment, and I wouldn't expect either of those for a few weeks, since i'm on vacation/working on the book this week, and I'm driving cross country from NY to CA the following week.
