LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70200-1.0.0-2017-07-31
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.

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>
Date: Sat Jan 31 15:27:56 2015 +0100

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 have this problem too but I believe I figured it out -- when I type L for log, LH shows. When I click on a quest from the in-game tracker, and the log pops up, LH does not show.

Started it this morning, it just takes a long time to run.

(and in that case: do you have a full dump available somehow easier than leeching the whole website request by request, page by page by page?)
I parse it, I don't have a dump. No, I will not make my dump available, as I do not have the right to redistribute someone else's material.

Is there a way to have LightHeaded also show up when you click a quest title in the Blizzard tracker? When I click on the quest in the tracker, it only opens up a one pane view of that quest, not the full quest log... and 99% of the time, the reason that I'm clicking on that quest is to view the LightHeaded info. This didn't used to be a problem for me because I used to use tomQuest, with it's customized tracker, but lately I've just been using the Blizzard one since it is pretty adequate now.

No, I only parse from the main site. Also, 'cata' redirects to 'www' right now...

LightHeaded won't move the picture.. I don't alter existing frames as a matter of principle. Just too much of a problem.

Just type /lhdetach (if I remember correctly).
I'd rather see the picture moved..

My only regret with regards to this most wonderful of addons is that I cannot afford to donate but being on an extremely tight budget, if I made a donation I could not afford to play/be online. It is a very real regret, and if my circumstances ever change you are at the top of my donations list. Thank you very much for the hours you have saved me

Can something smart be done about it?
