LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70300-1.0.0-2017-12-19
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!

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.

Hey all, I've just released a new BETA version of LightHeaded that adds support for AddonLoader. It also splits the NPC and quest name data out into LOD stubs to help with initial memory usage. To try it out, download AddonLoader (http://www.wowace.com/projects/addon-loader/) and the new version of LightHeaded from the "Beta" tab above.

You will want to ensure that it's been unpacked correct. You should have eight directories:

LightHeaded
LightHeaded_Data_A
LightHeaded_Data_B
LightHeaded_Data_C
LightHeaded_Data_D
LightHeaded_Data_E
LightHeaded_Data_QIDNames
LightHeaded_Data_NPC

Then exit your game client (so the new files can be loaded) and start up. You should see a message telling you when AddonLoader loads LightHeaded. Please let me know if it doesn't work with any of your extensions or other addons. I'd like to push this live sometime this week, along with a new comment update.

Thanks!

- Cladhaire

On the main addon page, there is a download button. Click that, and it will download a .zip file to your computer. Unzip this file and there is a text document right inside that explains how you can install the addon. Let me know if that doesn't help.

You've changed something else then, as there were no changes to LightHeaded. I suggest you do some troubleshooting, including disabling all addons except LightHeaded and showing yourself that it continues to work with the default UI. Then you can track down what addon is causing the problem.

Thank You for this mod.

How many times that I've been able to point others to it and save myself hours with those people, when all I'd be doing is repeating the comments.

Love this mod

Is there a way to be able to copy the actual comment page url to go there?
Say to add a new comment or etc.

Just wondering...
I could possibly add a button that would give you an edit box with the URL so you could copy it, but that's about it.

I have a large number of linux users. Obtaining LightHeaded is simple and easy. In addition:

Hi, thanks for your request. However, I will not be hosting my addons on WowMatrix anytime in the near future. There are numerous reasons why:

* WowMatrix has violated author copyright by hosting addons without permission and changing the code of the addons it does install.
* WowMatrix has hosted out of date versions of numerous addons causing the authors to spend signifigant amounts of time providing support for users who refused to acknowledge that they were using an out-of-date version of addons.
* When authors request that their addons be removed from WowMatrix, they have not complied.
* They have been and continue to try to utilize the bandwidth and hosting technology of Curse and WowInterface in clear violation of the terms of service of those websites.

As an addon author, I have the right to control where and when my addons are distributed. This allows me to provide a level of support for my users that I feel is necessary.

There are a number of easy ways to find out when an addon has been updated on WowInterface.com. Rather than trying to update the addons every time you open WoW.. you can download the latest version when it becomes available.

i found it. For some reason my extractor wasn't extracting the images and data folders that lie inside the LightHeaded folder. I don't know why I didn't look at the line in the first place.

thanks for the help
