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
to fix the previous parser. This required some changes to the addon, but
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.

Without the LOD, Lightheaded uses some 15MB of memory. Should I be concerned about this (running WOW with 1GB ram).

LightHeaded needs to be used by more people . Standard procedures remove one hump in the way of that. As well as removing in-guild support issues when people ask guild "mod gurus" why this mod isn't working anymore.
Well, I'll just repeat again that the previous and current method is flawed.. You don't see it, but I have to.

This one was worse the frame was like all over the place and detached.
Yes, but you didn't just report the error, you made a snide remark at the same time. It wasn't helpful, constructive, or even nice. I have enough trouble keeping things updated for my users and taking time out of my day to code and get things prepared. The more crud that's thrown into the mix really disturbs things.

Thanks.

Still, awesome addon that has helped me through, at least, 3 70's. Couldn't level without it . Thank you!
Thanks for reporting back. Yes I will be adding the LoD stuff, but not at the moment. It would make all of the debugging Im' trying to do about 10 times more difficult =(

Re: r214

Thank you very much cladhaire. I don't update often and when I updated this morning r213 was the newest so I grabbed that, when it didn't work for me I deleted everything lightheaded and started with the first revision in january. They all worked for me up to and including r209. That was when i started getting the blank page with the extra bar that extended 2/3 approximately across the screen.

Everything in it is working just fine for me in r214 with the exception that when I click on a co-ordinate (that used to have an arrow pop up in the middle of my screen) I instead now get a lua error

interface/addons/lightheaded/lighteaded.lua :70: bad argument #2 to 'format'(number expected, got string)

But hey I have the comments again I can live without the arrow which is likely because I disabled something in cartographer or some such.

Thank you for your continued hard work. Have a cup of tea and relax.

Re: Even worse :(

I am going to respond as nicely as I know how.

1.) You didn't have to download the new version of LightHeaded. If you don't like it, revert.
2.) Did you miss the part where I did a major internal revamp of the code to improve it and work with the 2.4 quest ids that were just exposed?
3.) I suspect you had more errors before this, specifically the other real error that's already been reported.

Version 214 is being uploaded.

Don't be nasty, it's ugly and it pisses me off. I made it EXTREMELY clear in both the addon description, and in my forum post that this is a new version and may and will have bugs that will need to be resolved.
