LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70100-1.1.0-2016-12-29
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

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.

Yes, I can see and reproduce the issue now. There is no NPC data in the new release. I'm working on a fix, but wowhead changed their markup.

Reporting same issue, just a confirmation.

I manually removed 281 and installed again, still had the problem.

Thought it might be a conflict with other modules so I disabled all add-ons except LH, still had the problem.

Just one example that I know reports it:
quest: 'Study of the Elements: Rock'
starts/ends: Lotwil Veriatus

Clicking on Lotwil gives the 'Location Unknown'.

Interesting, I'll take a look at it. Feel free to revert if you need locations until I can get it fixed.

I deleted all the LightHeaded folders, and unzipped the new ones from the downloaded archive. I got the same results three times in a row - Location Unknown on any linked NPC.

I don't use any updaters since wowmatrix went south, and in fact I've reinstalled all of my addons manually very recently.

Either way is fine, just wondering if I was missing something about the functionality.

Thanks for the notes on /commands to personalize how Lightheaded displays, I'll try those out today!

Yea, if you bring your cursor out to the right edge of lightheaded till it changes shape, click on it and it will close the lightheaded box. I am not sure if it closes it so that it doesn't draw any memory, but it will get it out of the way.
Not sure if your aware of this, but lightheaded doesn't pull any information from the websites when you open it. Claidhaire does this already, so when everyone opens their quest log it doesn't bog down wowhead with requests about quests. That is what the update was today a reparse/update of wowhead.

You mean Questlevel?
That addon is quite out-of-date but seems to work fine, but I'm not sure it won't make fps drop when Lightheaded is getting loaded.
What are you talking about? nothing is out of date and lightheaded is load on demand, so when you close it,it has no memory use.

None in particular. Normally Tuesdays when there's lots of stuff going on, although it doesn't hurt to put in a polite poke as you've done =) Although WowHead is undergoing maintenance, so it won't be right now =)

Is there a regular schedule in which LH's database is updated? Just curious - been checking daily to see if some of the new argent tournament quest comments have been added, but if its part of a regular update schedule, I can check in on the next scheduled day of update.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Native tweak options for tomQuest2's LH pane?

Here is my position (copied from page 2 or 3 of comments, so you don't have to go back and look for it). In short, no. I do not believe the attribution in LightHeaded constitutes an advertisement.

I would like to clarify my position on the inclusion of the WowHead logo on the main Lightheaded window, and my requirement that any addon using my API include the same attribution. The only reason this addon exists is due to the comments that are posted on WowHead. As a courtesy to them, I state this as such in a single place.

It really comes down to what constitutes an "advertisement". Let's examine a few different definitions of the word:
a paid announcement, as of goods for sale, in newspapers or magazines, on radio or television, etc.
a public notice, esp. in print.
the action of making generally known; a calling to the attention of the public: The news of this event will receive wide advertisement.

The first does not apply.. I am receiving no compensation from WowHead, and they are not receiving anything from someone who decides to after seeing the logo, google "WowHead" to see what it is.

The second does not apply because this is not a public notice, it's an attribution of the source of the data for the addon.

The third does not call attention to anything in any way, it again just provides information about the source of the data in the addon.

Admittedly this falls into part of the grey area in the UI policy, but it is completely your opinion that I am in violation. It is my opinion, after considering the policy as a whole that I am not in violation of the policy. You are welcome to submit your complaint to Blizzard and I will comply with their decision if they decide to contact me.

However, I do not anticipate that being the case.
Thanks for your clarification, your position is good enough for me, I'll keep the logo unless blizzard ask me to remove it.
