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!

Update for new parsing script

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]>

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.

It opens default quest description window and lh window, and when you click on the quest name or quest desc again to close it, both close.

Just download "fixed" LightHeaded.lua file from dropbox here add it to "X:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\LightHeaded\" folder and replace old file.

I just added two functions from line 75 to 86, not the best fix, but it works.
Thank you, that fixed all the problems I had with it!

  • You can show the frame using /lh show
Cladhaire has said ^^ that the attach and detach functionality has been removed.

RE: Attaching to quest log

v60000-1.0.0-2014-10-26

Lightheaded wont seem to attach to the quest log for me either. It doesn't show when I open the new integrated Map/Quest log, or when I click a specific quest to open it's own window from the quest tracker (the one under the minimap)

Tried with all other addons disabled and still no joy. "/LH show" brings up the LH quest window just fine, but "/lh attach" does nothing, & doesnt show any messages with debug mode on.

Great addon which has worked well for me for ages. "/lh show" is fine for now as I really only use it on toons I'm leveling, but I do hope there is a way to get this working as it once did...

LH freezes my screen ingame for a second everytime I accept a quest, turn in a quest og when I do quests that has an item or kill count like collect 15 something or kill 30 something. As soon as I disable LH, the freezes stop. I am using v60000-1.0.0-2014-10-26

I have, and I have decided not to. I'm happy to support wowinterface by making LightHeaded available here. Thanks!
Oh well. Thanks for the response.

I am afraid so. I hope author will make it attach somehow or auto open when clicking a quest.

Quest Log 6.0.2+

With the new quest log, LH does not appear automatically like it used to. If I type /lh show, it will appear behind the quest log. Is this working as intended or a bug?

There is a new addon updater out there that does include these addons. Its still in beta but so far I have found no problems, and it seems to work as well if not better than Curse. It also pops up the donate request for the developer if there is one. We do need people to donate so that these developers keep doing the great work they do. Please support the developers!

If I read the requirements right ... no go if ya have Windows XP? Anyone know if it does work and was omitted in error?

Sorry this leads us off track ... LH is one of my favs when I have trouble with completing the less obvious quest solutions.
Answering my own question here as an FYI to others.

Yes, the 32bit version of Minion works in XP for me.

Hmmm ... had LH working fine, but when I updated last round of updates it stopped showing up. I'll have a better chance to check it out tomorrow am ... till then RL is superceding my time.

Other addons I have (in case someone knows of a conflict):

Dugi (at least till Carbonite is back)
bagnon
bartender4
atlas (again, till Carbonite returns)
profession leveling guide

And I did not try the commands /lh attach or /lh config yet.
