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.

Just my simple thoughts

I don't have any knowledge of addons, but I can imagine some 'new' codes in LH causes a conflict or something?
Yes, the code that added support for the QuestLogDetailFrame (the small version of the quest log that appears when you click on a quest in the objective tracker). There's no code in there that changes the size of the frame, especially not the scale. The parent changes, as one would suspect, but nothing direct.

Thanks. Also would love to hear from one of the peanut gallery who is also experiencing the issue.

As do I, which is why I'm using my knowledge of the addon to try and diagnose the issue as best I can.

Thanks for trying to help me troubleshoot the issue. As I cannot reproduce this issue, I look forward to your further responses.j
Then it seems some how there is a communication problem between us. Sometimes, things don't come out correctly when I say them. But you're the first person to have trouble understanding me because of it so I didn't see it.

I'll try to figure out on my end what is causing it, since you can't reproduce it. It's hard because it still occurs in the default UI without using any addons. So I just don't know why it's doing it. But I know it can't JUST have to do with addons, since I'm trying to use it without and it still happens.

I'll get back to you after I do somem fiddling with it.

I honestly don't see why you're getting hostile. If you just read what I said and stop assuming that you already know what's causing it then I wouldn't have to tell you again. It does reoccur in the default UI, without using any addons. I don't have a screenshot yet because I don't have time to make one right now. I have things I need to take care of in reality.

Yes, of COURSE there is code that changed in the last version, you can see this in the changelog.. things changed.

Please dont' tell me how to troubleshoot or what is or isn't relevant.

This issue cannot be reproduced with the default user interface. LightHeaded is 100% DESIGNED to work with the DEFAULT user interface and that is it. If another addon is using the LightHeaded frame and API to display information, then they are responsible for that integration. It's a conflict between the changes I made and whatever addon you are using that is causing this to happen. That is a plain and simple fact.



Your addon is being caused by an interaction between LightHeaded and another addon. I need a set of minimally reproducible conditions.

Here's a hint.. if you can disable all addons and reproduce this issue then its 100% a LightHeaded problem. If you can't, then it's not. In the latter case, please help me identify the addon or addons that is causing the issue to occur.

I don't edit posts because it makes things confusing.

You've said that Carbonite is causing this issue. Then I suggest users report this to the Carbonite authors so they can make the adjustment. I don't know when I'll have a chance to download that monster of a terrible addon to test why this is happening.. but I'll try and do that at some point in the future.

Hmm... after reading what I typed it kind of seems mean but I was not intending it to be at all... (I have a weird train of thought... even my psychologists think it's weird but interesting - so sometimes when I say things they don't come out quite right)
