LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70200-1.0.0-2017-07-31
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.

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>
Date: Sat Jan 31 15:27:56 2015 +0100

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.

need some help with r270 pls

I had a total system meltdown and have had to totally rebuild my system - in doing so I have had to reinstall everything, prior to (what we call The Great Crash) I was running r270 and had the expanded 3 panels when I opened the quest log - I LOVE THIS - makes questing So much better. Now that I have everything done and want to play I can not get my Lightheaded to go back to that 3 panel.

I have removed all Lightheaded files and (from the original folder and the new Lich King folder) and reinstalled, but can not get it to do that. It does show that I am running version 270.

I have Vista, pls help

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.

Thanks for the bug report.

Thanks for the hard work.
There's nothing I can do to help you. You should run through the troubleshooting steps to ensure that LightHeaded is properly installed in the correct location. It sounds like something has changed on your machine, and I do not know how I can possibly help you work through what that problem is. Nothing's changed in LightHeaded that should be causing this issue.

You are not installing the addon correctly. Delete everything LightHeaded from your addon directory and start from scratch following the readme.txt.

FuBar_QuestFu needs to update. This has been an outstanding issue since World of Warcraft released the 2.4 patch. There is nothing I can or will do from my ends of things, the issue is solely in that addon, it having not been updated for such a long period of time.

There is a thread in the wowace forums with a fix, but someone needs to write it and put it into the addon.

Clique IS posted at Curse. LightHeaded will not be, but TomTom may make its way on there at some point.
