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!

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.

TourGuide interferes with LightHeaded

LightHeaded works fine if I disable the addon TourGuide. When I enable TourGuide and then login, LightHeaded fails to run, and is no longer listed among the Interface>Addons. I have downloaded the latest version of LH from this site.

Well no idea why it's affecting AddonLoader and LightHeaded. I suggest you bring it up with that author.

AddOn Loader being strange with LightHeaded

I'm having a strange problem as well.

/lh /lh config and all other commands do not work. I've confirmed however that its a conflict with another AddOn... just have not been able to figure out which one yet. (EDIT-its WoW-Pro)

If there is more information you require just let me know.

Nothing relating to AddonLoader has changed in LightHeaded, and I'm happily using them side-by-side. There is no conflict that I am aware of.

Then it isn't enabled or installed correctly. Do you see it in your addon selection screen? You need to provide more information and troubleshooting, please. The addon continues to function as always.

Thanks for your consideration.
Possibly, but it would be a huge undertaking, and would be a different addon.

Please be patient with me for the next few weeks as I work through some medical issues in my real life. Thank you for sticking with me
