LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70100-1.0.0-2016-10-26
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.

No, its not really that easy. I'm not trying to be defensive, but I'd like you to be able to use the addon if you're able to. In order to do that, you just need to talk to someone on the Cosmos team.

Best wishes

Then perhaps you should talk to the PartyQuests author to make it work with Lightheaded, not the other way around. My mod will NOT be changing to match every single one of the 17,000 quest mods that exist. If they want to be able to provide LightHeaded to their users, its extremely easy to do so.

Thanks, that did the trick. Obviously LH doesnt work with Extended Questlog. Works perfectly with DoubleWide though, which serves the same purpose.

Cheers!

Not one that has all the working features of the addon in general. I assure you, however, it works very similarily to the cart arrow.

P.S. - Thanks to the author for a great addon.

request

I have grown accustomed to using Cartographer map notes and would like to be able to use Lighheaded to create them. Being able to click on the coords to sends the data to the clipboard, or selecting the text would be quite useful.

Despite my ungrateful begging, this is a fantastic mod. My love for this and other mods you have created is brighter than the sun. I am going to name my first born after you.

--edit--

I have since looked at the code and added a bit to make it compatible with Cartographer notes. It seems to work just fine for me, so I will include it in case any other user has coding knowledge and wishes to do the same:

line 615:
self:Print("NPC locations are not supported in this version of TomTom.")
end

if Cartographer_Notes and type(Cartographer_Notes.SetNote) == "function" then
local zone = select(z or GetCurrentMapZone(), GetMapZones(c or GetCurrentMapContinent()))
Cartographer_Notes:SetNote(zone, x/100, y/100, "Triangle", (UnitName("player")), 'manual', true, 'title', note);
end


if Cartographer_Waypoints and type(Cartographer_Waypoints.AddLHWaypoint) == "function" then
line 592:
TomTom:AddWaypoint(x, y, note)
end

if Cartographer_Notes and type(Cartographer_Notes.SetNote) == "function" then
Cartographer_Notes:SetNote(GetRealZoneText(), x/100, y/100, "Triangle", (UnitName("player")), 'manual', true, 'title', note);
end


if Cartographer_Waypoints and type(Cartographer_Waypoints.AddLHWaypoint) == "function" then

Or is it that TomTom Co-ords just give general areas of Location?
This Addon with tom tom is just a refrence tool. You do need to read the quest to know where you are supposed to be. Any Coords made by a player, 95% of the time you have to be in the correct area to get TomTom to work correctly. Any coords made by the site itself, Example, Where the quest giver, and where to turn in the quest, you could be anywhere in the world and it will tell you the correct place.

So simple solution... READ THE DAMN QUEST AND THEN USE THE ADDON!
