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.

Update FYI

Just an FYI, my primary development machine is in for repair at the moment, so I'll do what I can as far as getting a new parse/update done-- but it may have to wait until my machine gets back. I'll keep you posted.

Re: Cartographer Notes instead of Waypoints

At the moment you are showing a waypoint went clicking co-ords.

I think it would be better to add a map note instead, that way I can run though my quest log clicking the co-ords and I can see on the map what quests are grouped together. Then if I want a waypoint I can set one from the map.

Somebody posted a bit of code to insert in to the "old" version of LightHeaded to do just this, and the system worked really well.
Not at the top of my list, since I barely support Cartographer as it is.. If someone wants to post a diff, I can look at adding it with some option.

In order for LightHeaded to switch the quest focus without the user directly clicking on the QuestLogTitleButton, it would probably be a good idea to hook the QuestLog_Update function instead of the QuestLogTitleButton_OnClick function.
I'll look into it.

Ahh, I did not realize that. Thanks for the enlightenment.

Okay.. someone else reported this issue, I'll look into it.
