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.

I actually thought you did. I am slightly agitated and it is because of earlier. I'm sorry.

Each one numbered represents in order which slash command you asked me to input into the chat and access what it reports to me. The Blue 1's are part of it, I don't know what they are.

1) [1]-1
2) [1]-0.6499
3) [1]-*QuestLogDetailFrame*
4) [1]-0.1000
5) [1]-0.0649

I can do that, and I'll post a new comment here with the information each /dump command gives me. However I do not know yet what you mean by you don't need prise numbers only 4 decimal places... because I haven't yet seen what it displays. [/b]

Go ahead and do the following:

/dump LightHeadedFrame:GetScale()
/dump LightHeadedFrame:GetEffectiveScale()
/dump LightHeadedFrame:GetParent():GetName()
/dump LightHeadedFrame:GetParent():GetScale()
/dump LightHeadedFrame:GetParent():GetEffectiveScale()

When its in the state you've posted in the screenshot.

I don't need PRECISE numbers.. 4 decimal places is more than enough.

Okay, it still does it when all my addons enabled with it, even with a fresh new WTF folder.

So here is the screenshot below. Note that I didn't configure or change anything, I just re-enabled every addon with Lightheaded and the data to it all at once, and logged in and took a screenshot instantly.

I did back it up, it's just there is no point in showing you a screenshot, when I've determined that the reason it wasn't working without any other addons for me was because of a corrupted WTF folder.

Thank you!
There is no need for a screenshot because it will just show it working now, because I did delete my WTF folder before I tried it, and now it's working fine as it's suppose to (without addons). As for working correctly with the addons I normally use, I'll try that now and let you know. So basically it was the WTF folder corruption that caused the problem "WITHOUT AddOns". With them, I'm about to find out.

That doesn't mean that it's not causing it somehow, someway. Just because it's working fine for you, doesn't mean that there is no issue with Lightheaded. It could be a curruption problem within the WTF folder... I know in the past I use to have a lot of problems with that (which was just last week).

When that occurs I usually have to delete my WTF folder, and let World of Warcraft servers recreate a new one for the addons to automatically put their saved variables in, and if they don't then I have to manually do it.

My extensive knowledge of how the pattern works in WTF folders has led me to believe that it's very well possible that that is what has happened, but I Don't know yet.

Okay, I can take a screenshot for you.

The only troubleshooting I need you to do right now is to disable every single addon except Lightheaded and the data addons and then screenshot what you're seeing so I can give you some troubleshooting steps.
