LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70000-1.1.0-2016-09-05
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!

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.

Re: Re: LH and Floating Frames

I'm almost positive this is an issue with the way QuestGuru is altering the underlying quest API. It's resulting in the 'selection' of the player in the log not including a quest id, which every single quest in WoW would do. This error would not and could not occur with the default user interface. I can put something in place to stop the error from being thrown, but it would continue to not function properly.

Re: LH and Floating Frames

I've got the same error message as the guy below me. Some conflict between FloatingFrames and LightHeaded or QuestGuru. The FF developer said "It has to do with some other addon", so I figured I'd start here. Thanks!

Two things to report here:

1) I've had an error pop up a couple of times, when I'm using LH to search for a quest by name, and then afterward I click on an existing quest in my Quest Log. Here's the error message:

Message: Interface\AddOns\LightHeaded\LightHeaded.lua:1519: Usage: LightHeadedSearchBox:SetText("text")
Time: 06/06/10 18:00:49
Count: 1
Stack: [C]: in function `SetText'
Interface\AddOns\LightHeaded\LightHeaded.lua:1519: in function <Interface\AddOns\LightHeaded\LightHeaded.lua:1516>
[C]: in function `SetItemRef'
Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:2764: in function `ChatFrame_OnHyperlinkShow'
[string "*:OnHyperlinkClick"]:1: in function <[string "*:OnHyperlinkClick"]:1>

Locals: (*temporary) = LightHeadedSearchBox {
0 = <userdata>
}
(*temporary) = nil

It doesn't seem to cause any problems, but I thought I should let you know about it.




2) As someone reported earlier, I'm having the occasional "tool-tip" that doesn't go away, but gets stuck at the mouse pointer.


Thanks for your continued work on this great addon, it's the only questing addon I need to use!

Good news. By messing around I think I figured out the problem. I had made a new character in order to revamp my UI. Thus the TourGuide zone guide that I used was for Elwynn Forest. I decided to try other zone guides, and all work perfectly with LightHeaded after a /reloadui.

It appears that it is the Elwynn Forest guide file that is incompatible with LH. Perhaps you might be able to look at it and figure out why.

Thanks so much for your attention to this issue, and for a most useful mod.!

cheers,
huwon

I don't experience this behaviour with TourGuide and LightHeaded, so I'm not sure how to proceed. Try disabling AddonLoader?

Re: Re: Re: TourGuide interferes with LightHeaded

Have you enabled Lua Errors, to see if there's an error being thrown at some point?

Interface Options -> Help -> Display Lua Errors

I regret that my statement was misleading. Permit me to clarify, and we can begin again.
I have used and updated LightHeaded for years. I stopped for a couple of months after Blizzard upgraded quest tracking recently. I found I missed LH though, and reinstalled it. I indeed did read the "read me" file. I am comfortable with the installation of addons. I unzipped LH into my addons directory as usual, and the eight folders remained there. My misleading statement about LH being "no longer listed among the Interface>Addons" was referring to the fact that I could see the LH options using the ingame Menu>Options>Interface>Addons tab, when LH was loaded with all of my addons except TourGuide. However, if I also enable TourGuide, LH does not appear to run, its config menu is no longer available in game (to clarify again, the folders do remain in the computer's addons directory) and no LH frame opens with the quest log.

It makes no sense to me either. I have successfully used LH with TomTom and TourGuide in the past. I did delete and reinstall LH, in case the download was corrupt, but the problem persists.
I am hoping that you can suggest a way to troubleshoot the problem, or at least log the errors, or provide a solution. Might it help for me to delete a saved variables file?
