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.

The memory could not be "read".
Thank you, I'll do what I can to look into this.

With which quest? Can you reproduce it? What other addons are you running that may have caused this error? Can you reproduce it with just LightHeaded?

This shouldn't not be possible or happen with the normal quest log, which is all I support.

Try adding doublewide. I use it in conjunction with Lighthheaded and get 3 panels.

At first I thought it was only the waypoint feature that was not working, and that the problem might be with Cartographer. However, after making sure that I have the latest versions of all addons, the waypoints still wouldn't work. I then realized that none of the links in LightHeaded worked. Clicking, for example, on the name of a quest giver to obtain their coordinates or information gave no response at all, and the associated information page would not open. I was pleasantly surprized a couple of nights ago, when I clicked a link and it was working again. Unfortunately, after doing a couple of quests, it suddenly stopped responding again and it's still not responding when I click any of the LightHeaded links.

Is there any way I could try and debug this issue? I had the impression that LightHeaded stopped responding after doing one of those quests that take over your character. I noticed that it had stopped responding shortly after doing the quest Spiritual Insight in Dragonblight. Any ideas on what I can try to get the links working again?
This has to do with the way that WoW renders the SimpleHTML widget, and there's nothign either you or I can do to "fix" it. You may want to try clicking ABOVE the link slightly.. since it seems many times the button that they generate is offset in that way.

The "3 panels" has nothing to do with LightHeaded. LightHeaded only provides the one extra panel. If you would like your quest log to be twice as wide, you should download the addon DoubleWide.

Yea Vista moves the WoW installation under Users/Public/Games. So if are not running your addons from there, then you will run into issues.

vista is weird

Since wrath came out i have heard many vista users complain about issues with updating their mods and it is because vista moved or duplicated their wow installation. Look for an extra copy of wow on your machine with it's own addons folder to be updated, that is where the game is running from.
