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.

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>

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.

It's almost certainly a quest log replacement or something similar. Let me know what you find out.

I'd need to know exactly what quest this is happening on, if you can find one that does it, please get me the quest id. Otherwise, there's very little that I can do to troubleshoot this.

Heya!

I'm currently using this mod together with a bunch of others, and It appears that randomly, the mod breaks down completely, often after I've checked the cords or clicked a blue hyperlink and then complete a quest, or just simply closing my questlog.

Whenever the errors happens, I'm stuck with whatever screen I had up at the moment, and unable to view any of the cords, changing quest in the questlog does however let me view the "first" page of the quest, but it won't allow me to click any links. Reloading my UI clears the error completely, but it still happens far to often

I'm not using any questlog mods, as far as I know, my list is down there :P

Hrm, I am fairly certain that the Auctionator errors have nothing to do with LightHeaded, ESPECIALLY if they're happening immediately on login. I'm not quite sure how to help you with that one =)

I guess I missed that about r308. I'll start over with r310.

1. Update LightHeaded to r310
I used to manually update AddOns by deleting the old folder before copying the new one, even when I started using the Curse Client to update. When a rep from curse.com assured me that the client does that, I quit the manual updates and let curse do it. I hope.
Anyway, this time I manually deleted all of the LightHeaded AddOn folders, and also deleted the account and the test character SavedVariables lua files for LH. Then copied r310 to AddOns.

2 See if it functions correctly alone.
I logged on the test character and yes it seems to function correctly, as far as the quest log functions. However, after I logged off and back on I am now getting four or five errors pointing at Auctionator, each for a different one of several items in my bag, like this one for item = Ironbite Shell:

Code:
Auctionator-2.6.3\AuctionatorHints.lua:230: attempt to index global 'gAtr_ScanDB' (a nil value)
Auctionator-2.6.3\AuctionatorAPI.lua:47: in function `Atr_GetAuctionBuyout'
Broker_Garbage-3.3v29\core.lua:418: in function `GetSingleItemValue'
Broker_Garbage-3.3v29\helper.lua:523: in function `UpdateCache'
Broker_Garbage-3.3v29\helper.lua:554: in function `GetCached'
Broker_Garbage-3.3v29\core.lua:638: in function `ScanInventoryContainer'
Broker_Garbage-3.3v29\core.lua:68: in function <Broker_Garbage\core.lua:47>

Locals:
item = "|Hitem:28061:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:71[Ironbite Shell]"
sellval = nil
origGetAuctionBuyout = nil
  ---
3. If it does, enable QuestGuru and attempt to reproduce the issue.
Ignoring the Auctionator errors for now and concentrating on the quest log problem, it seems to be gone. Either the curse client doesn't delete the old folders like I was told, or deleting the SavedVariables did the trick.
But I don't remember seeing the Auctionator errors when I tried r310 before, so I am confused about that. The errors pop up immediately on logon.
I haven't tried to troubleshoot the new errors, like deleting the Auctionator SavedVariables, or even disabling Auctionator to confirm the errors go away without it... it's past my bedtime.

Thank you so much for your support.

Because the data files are in a subdirectory, on Windows it can be very easy to copy all the files and miss the Data directory. This could leave you with old data when you think you have the latest.

Personally, I always suggest removing the LightHeaded directory and reinstalling the new one, it's always clean, and you're always sure that it's been done correctly. I even package the addon in a way to make this as easy as possible.

I hope that answers your question?
It does, thanks.

So I'm wondering about the data being used in 304 vs. 308 - since you said if we get 310 we should remove the folder entirely to avoid using 308's data, will the same apply when upgrading from 304 to 310 [or whatever]?

Thanks.

For the record, there are two issues that are going on here. One is that WowHead changed their data to include a comma in the amount of experience gained by a character. So what used to be 2450 because 2,450. This works fine for most purposes, but conflicts with some code that was contributed by a user of the addon to convert that experience amount into the correct amount of gold. That code uses implicit numeric/string conversions and those fail when the thousands separator is included. 308 was an attempt to fix that in part, but I didn't quite get it 100% until r310. At this point, I'm fairly confident the parser is getting the correct data into the data files, and will work on the code to make it more robust in the future.

308 has issues that 310 doesn't, so I'm not interested in seeing anything with r308. There are no code changes from 304 through 310, so I would need specific information about what is happening and when.

I can't reproduce these issues, and I unfortunately don't have the time to chase down already fixed bugs with lots of other issues going on. If you'd like to do the following:

1. Update LightHeaded to r310, and ENSURE 100% that you've done it correctly. This means completely remove the entire LightHeaded folder before doing anything else, then install r310 from scratch. You can easily update JUST the code of the addon which will then show that you have r310, when in fact you're using r308's data, which is obviously broken.

2 See if it functions correctly alone. If not, report the issue (i do not ever need a full list of the addons you are running, just the traceback).

3. If it does, enable QuestGuru and attempt to reproduce the issue.

If you find the problem persists, report the PRECISE actions you were taking, the quest id of the quest you were clicking on (or at least the name), and the level of the character.

This all being said, I don't know of any issues with r310 that have been reported.
