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.

Brilliant!

Using this on the zhtw client, works really nicely. Tried it once back in the 2.2 days and it wasn't working properly, but I've wanted to use this since then.

Now if only my Cartographer will show my quest objectives like it did before the patch...

Anyways, great job!

Im using Mozilla, and clicked on the "Download" button and got r216. Going to check results on IE. Wait a second.

EDIT: Tried IE and got the right file, r219. Don't know whats with Mozilla..

Anyway, this is great addon! Can't even level anymore without it. I would just want to get that LoD back because of my computer.. Just take your time to add it, no need to hurry. ^^
When I click the download button, I get r219, as expected. I can verify this by the filename, and the version listed in LightHeaded.toc.

I want to sincerely apologize for the number of updates over the past few days. Regardless of how much testing I do, you guys will always find bugs that I was unable to trigger. There have been almost 2 million downloads of LightHeaded since I created it and I'm humbled that all of you consider this addon vital enough to be so passionate about bug reports.

I believe that r219 fixes all of the issues with the page flipping. The two fixes I put together initially didn't consider all the different modes the system could be in and every change had some other bug associated with it. I believe to have thought out the solution this time, and I've tested it as best I can. Please let me know if you continue to have issues with LightHeaded.

I thought you might like to know that it still happens when you click on an NPC.

For example, the quest [69] The Hermit Smith - on the very first page of the LH data it shows the quest ID, the level and required level, the names of the NPCs who start and end the quest etc.

The NPC names are hyperlinks and when u click on to get more info about his location, it jumps back to the first page of the quest info.

No other changes to mods from my prev post except I am using r217 for LH.

Cheers,
RJS.
I again, cannot reproduce this using Carbonite Quest. Hopefully the issue will be fully resolved in the next CQ update either way.

Thanks for the report. Easy to fix things when they're reported like this :PP

Ok, maybe I'm just an idiot, but I've loaded LH and it shows up on my add-ons list, but how do I bring it up? I go to my quest list and there's no where that indicates I click to open it up...I'm still having to alt+tab and go to Wowhead, so it isn't doing me a lick of good. Help?
Make sure you're using the default quest log (i.e. don't have another replacement). The best way to see how LH works, is to start a test character on another sever, and disable all addons except LightHeaded. That will give you a better idea of how it works.

Just looked at Change log. Funny cause I just fixed Carbonite issues with r215. Now I gotta test again.

FYI: Carbonite and Carbonite Quest both select the quest when the watch list updates once per second. The quest selection is restored after update, but it causes the LH page to go back to 1. The watch update no longer changes the quest selection in the next versions that will be out tonight or tomorrow.
Great, I also put some code in that cache the value in order to stop things from blinking like that.

Originally posted by Ulynn
Dunno if this has been brought up or not but since 2.4, my Lightheaded does not show the name of the quest when I hover over the waypoint on the main map or minimap anymore, it just shows the Quest ID. Is there some configuration I'm missing or anything I can do?
You're using an old version of LightHeaded. Please ensure your bug hasn't been fixed in the changelog before reporting them, thanks!

I don't know if this has been brought up before. But is there a way to delete or ignore some of the pages in the comments section? I realize that the quest will only be in my log for a few days or so depending on how fast i grind thru them. Sometimes when searching for just coords or a nice strategy...i would like to mark the pages or delete the ones with sensless comments
No, there is not, perhaps in the future.
