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.

Is there a way to get a visual guide thats not in the mini-map just using tomtom? I know that's what you recommend, but I don't like the little box with coordinates. The 3d arrow rocks!
The minimap arrows are a feature of TomTom, not LightHeaded - I know it can be hard to draw the line, because they are well integrated.

Clad has stated previously that the next release of TomTom will include the "crazy taxi arrow" without requiring the use of Cartographer.

I think this may need to be updated to have the Waypoints work with the latest version of Cartographer.

The 3d arrow works for my roommate who is using a really old version of Cartographer, but I have the latest one and when I ALT+click on a coordinate it says "this Version of Cartographer Waypoints is not compatible with Light-Headed"

I'll have a mess with EQL see if i can fix it so this works.

"The Archive is either in a unknown format or damaged" is what it says.
I suggest trying to download again, verifying the MD5 and the size of the file. LightHeaded is about 5.5 megs, so you'll need to ensure you got the entire file.

I was using EQL3, then nquestlog/doublewide, now beql, but it did the same thing with all of them.

Help?
I would suggest you test without any quest log addons, i.e. just LightHeaded. Verify the problem doesn't happen in that case. Then its a matter of narrowing down whats conflicting. Where are you using BEQL from, there are a bunch of versions, and I'm not sure all of them are compatible.

Also, ensure you don't have addons that are double-adding the quest level, or adding it to the wrong part. All of these will be problems.

Don't know if you considered adding support for this addon in the future?
No, personally I think that skinner is the devil, and looks like poop. But pushing all of that aside, Skinner is the addon that is changing the graphics of my frame, and the quest log. If it's not looking correct, I suggest you contact the author of skinner.
