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.

Not possible.

This is simply a capture of all comments available on WoWHead.com at the time of the update (currently, the last update was 7-17-2007).

That's nearly as good as a "streaming" version.

Clad, any thoughts on my previous post (feature request/suggestion) ?

TomTom adds waypoints, not LightHeaded. TomTom currently doesn't support saving waypoints from session to session, but I'd like to get it added.

a.) its same with all quests
b.)
c.)Im using bugsack and i dont have any errors at all
d.)Installed properly and reinstalled twice

Ill be glad to help with other info, strange is that my alliance chars are ok but horde not.
Feel free to run through any troubleshooting steps you can think of to get me a minimal base case. Also, enable /lh debug to see what errors you gt there.

I don't have anything to do with nQuestLog. If you can access the details correctly using the default quest log and LightHeaded, then I can't really help-- it's something that author will need to look at.

Possible new feature? It might help expand the audience by word of mouth and also go great with the planned "search" functionality.

My brother is 63 and I'm 70. We're playing together and leveling him up etc. but he keeps saying "OK we need to go to 70, 83 for so and so quest"

Now, LH is awesome and TomTom, etc. but it's kind of redundant to have to open the map, hoever my cursor around and find the spot, then remember it or /way 70 83 killin some shit if I want to be on the same page.

He now uses LH and TomTom as per my recommendation so I was thinking... would it be possible for him to have chat open, then "shift+click" on the location or quest name, etc. and have it link in the chat? This way, with LH installed, it would recognize it like a torrent link is on the intarweb (torrent://blblablalblala.awesome) (LH:whatever,locc,locz,locx,locy,desc) etc. This would be a great "coupled" feature with the searching ability as two users that use LightHeaded could now "cut out the middle man" of having to know the name and level of a quest (more likely EXACT name, etc.) and you might find people asking, "You have LH?" "Ok here's the quest link and loc for TT"

If I don't have LH installed, then it just shows up as the link to other users (the actual LH:whatever) or as just the name of the text.

Clicking on this "link" if it's a quest would open the relevant quest information panel in LightHeaded (open the log, etc.). Clicking on a location would either prompt the user to add it as a waypoint or (by turning this "prompt" off) automatically add it as a waypoint upon click.

This stems from wanting to be able to see his waypoints. Ideally, if two users have TomTom and LightHeaded (or just TomTom I suppose), they could both opt-into sharing of waypoints, etc. Whenever one user adds a waypoint, it appears automatically on the other user's screen, etc. This could be limited to party or raid, etc.

I know it might be a lot but do you think with a bit of TLC and time, it could be possible? IT might be the next evolution of the addon, imho.

THANKS CLAD! Hope the book is coming along nicely.

Cannot view WowHead comments

When I try to get WoWHead comments on any quest, the chat log shows:

Loading LightHeaded_A20_Data

then LH fires two errors. Here is the text of the first:

[2007/07/21 17:02:37-477-x1]: LightHeaded\LightHeaded.lua:234: attempt to index local 'data' (a nil value)

I have reinstalled nQuestLog and LightHeaded but the problem persists.

I have updated all Ace Addons as well.

Any ideas?

I would appreciate any information you can provide, since I cannot reproduce this issue.

What version of Cartographer and Cartographer_Waypoints are beeing used ?

Maybe make a link here on where to get them ?

Would be awsome

I don't support those addons, but I understand the version on curse is out of date, and the one on files.wowace.com works correctly.

For people using Cartographer :
I always use the latest version of Cartographer and Cartographer_Waypoints and everything works. You can download it at http://files.wowace.com and for easy updates you can use WowAceUpdater at http://www.wowace.com/wiki/WowAceUpdater and if it still doesn't work, try using TomTom ...
The waypoints are really the best part of this addon I think, so I hope it will work !

@Redmercy :
I suppose it is the case but are you using the english version of Wow ? Because it doesn't work with the other localizations... When I tried with the French one everything was blank...

Btw, thank you very much Cladhaire for this wonderful addon !

This mod doesn't seem to be compatible with Extended Questlog available here: http://wowui.incgamers.com/ui.php?id=4188. LightHeaded simply doesn't show up anywhere, whether the frame is attached or detached. This is more of an informative notice than a complaint. Are there any mods similar to what I linked that work with LightHeaded? I know Bayi's version does, but that locks up WoW every time I use it.
