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.

Will Lightheaded support listing of completed quests?

I withdraw my question, I see you already answered it and apologize for wasting everyone's time.

Thanks for the great addon, been using it for years.

Could you give me the numeric quest id, and I'll look at it.

Secondly, I'm having an issue with the layout of the LH frame. In the past the frame would jut up against the frame of the quest frame. For some reason now there is a decent sized space between the quest frame and the LightHeaded frame. I'm not sure if it's me, the quest frame mod I use (QuestGuru), or possibly something with LightHeaded itself. It's nothing big, just something I've been trying to post for a while and just kept forgetting about. I've posted a SC of what I was talking about below.

Thanks again.

When Blizzard changed the layout of their quest log, I changed the placement of the window accordingly. QuestGuru never responded by fixing their addon. They are the ones responsible for where the window is being placed. =/.

A big shout-out to you, Cladhaire, for the work you put into revising your addons to keep up with game changes. I'm sure it's not trivial, and I really appreciate it-- I'm sure others do, too.

Heck, just being patient with all of us here is non-trivial

Re: Re: Coordinate links in Comments area no longer work

Sorry to bother Cladhaire, a simple question: will Lightheaded continue to work with the new QuestTracking interface Blizzard is releasing with 3.3?

How do it get it to work again?

SECOND QUESTION:
How do users incorporate their own comments into the Lightheaded text pane? I've searched the forum, but cannot find any reference to the procedure.
I don't support integration with Carbonite. If you want to see if it works, download TomTom or another addon that it supports and see if it works there.

As for comments, just make your comments on http://wowhead.com and they'll show up in the next post.

It would be a completely different addon, no you'll never see it in LightHeaded. Maybe in the future I'd make an addon that can display them, but I'm not sure how likely that is.

Thank you, This did help.

I also found out that part of my problem is that a friend who was helping me moved my addon file to a different location so lightheaded was not syncing with curse client or WoW. My mother, who also plays, noticed this and helped me move my file to the correct locatoin.

Thanks again for the help and also the quick respnses to my questions
