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.

You can turn on /lh debug to show whether or not LightHeaded detected your click. If it didn't detect it, it's an issue with the way Blizzard handles clicks on embedded links and there isn't a terrible amount I can do. Please report back with some more information.

It works just fine, however the server is currently having an issue that is causing some downloads to time out. It should be back up very soon.

That's really the last thing I'm concerned about. I already textured it using textures from the default user interface.

I have no way to know if you are using a double-wide quest log, or any other alterations. That's specifically why I did what I did.. because it should work for pretty much anything people could be running.

Frankly, I think it looks damn good in the screenshots posted on the website.. so I'm not really sure what your concern is.

The conflict has nothing to do with that.. Please provide screenshots or a clear description of the problem.

Usually about 20 lines or so and highly aggravating. I don't want to turn off either mod but wonder if there is an easy fix or do I need to wait for an update? I can screenshot if it will help.
LightHeaded prints nothing unless you have debug messages enabled. This would involve you typing /lh debug. You can type it again to turn it off.

Just ignore it for right now. As soon as I'm done with a new comment parse i'll be removing that check. Hopefully Armory, QuestHelper and the other "problem" mods can get their acts together.

Also make sure you don't have any zones collapsed in your quest log. This combined with some other addon you have is probably causing the performance issue.

Update to the latest version, and it will attempt to give you a warning about what addon you're conflicting with. You're definitely conflicting with something.
