LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70200-1.0.0-2017-04-01
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

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.

Sounds like it's not properly installed. Please be sure that LightHeaded folder and the LightHeadData_A through F(?) folders are all in your Interface/Addons folder, are all the current version, and that they are all enabled for the character you are logging in as.

Then you are not using the latest vesion of LightHeaded. The warning was most certainly removed, as stated in the changelog.

Hi Cladhaire,

You have your readme.txt located at the root of your zip file, which makes it end up in the ...\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns folder instead of ...\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\LightHeaded.

No big deal, just a heads-up.

That's weird. I specifically remember that LH comments WERE there for that quest a few days ago.

Yes, but I don't like the way it feels if I do that.. I'd have to figure out how to do it right, which is something I am working on.

Thanks Allara, you found a bug in my parsing code, and I was able to find another 3000 comments that weren't parsing properly before that should be added in the next update (which I'm working on at the moment).

Re: missing arrow =(

Originally posted by Dethia
Many apologies if this has been answered already, I skimmed through the comments but there is a ton of them!

Love this mod, been using it for ages ! I encounted a problem today however when my tracking arrow disappeared. I thought maybe it was off screen but I'm at max resolution so I don't know where it could be. =/

I've reinstalled etc, not sure what the problem could be.

Thanks for any help!
I'm thinking this is a server side change, I started having this problem yesterday as well. I didn't change any addons. TomTom has the same problem.

edit: the white square instead of the waypoint arrow. my error catcher did catch something about a stack overflow, related to the minimap i -think-.
