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.

Where the hell do I click to download it? I can't find it anywhere. I even made a donation thinking that would give me a link or something!

New problem for me...

I've been using Lightheaded for a long time... I just downloaded this new version and installed it on both of my PCs.... works perfectly on the XP machine, however it is giving me issues on the Vista PC.... I have already set WoW's compatibility to XP and am running it as Administrator.... my issue is, while the Coordinates do set like they are suppose to when I click linked coordinates inside the Quest help, clicking on NPC names listed on the Quest overview no longer links to that NPCs coordinates like they use to.

Like I said, it still works fine on the XP machine....

Any ideas??

Importing wowHead Info

Wonderful Addon!!!!

I had issue last night while I was running quests. Seems I wasn't getting any wowhead info for any Wrath related quests. No errors in the Addon Itself was still working with BC quests... just wasn't gathering Wrath quests. Is this a "known issue" atm... or am I just broken on my end and need to reset my UI?

Ahhh I see. WHy would anyone choose cartographer...it's a memory hog right? Seems like it works fine with alpha map!

I haven't dissected Quixote's code to see if anything could be changed there.
I am really not comfortable with changing my code to work around a bug in another addon.

Re: Re: LibQuixote Update - SelectQuestLogEntry hooking

Yeah, there really shouldn't be a reason for this to be happening, but I'm not terribly sure how to avoid it on my end. SelectQuestLogEntry() is really the main entry point for the quest log (at least in this regard) so it makes the most sense for me to be using it to accomplish my work.

I'm open to suggestions..

It doesn't work for me on the first time, or the second time. It just doesn't work for me period. I can set waypoints with cartographer, but I can't use lightheaded in conjunction with Cartographer at all.
