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.

I promise you, there is absolutely no code to do anything like that in LightHeaded.

Appears on the screen in slow motion lol. Not sure if this is a Lightheaded issue or wow's but just wanted to bring attention to it. Thanks a lot for your time.

Sorry if this has been reported, but...

I'm having an occasional issue with a tooltip getting permanently attached to the mouse cursor, and I believe it's a Lightheaded one. It says "Waypoint to 60.00, 29.00". It follows the cursor everywhere and I can't get it off without reloading the UI (I've tried clicking links or mousing over other tooltippy things). I haven't yet been able to figure out what scenario is causing this but I will post if do.

Thanks for all your work

EDIT EDIT: Nvm, it's not that :/

Looking forward to the update! I don't know how I lived without Lightheaded and TomTom before I found out about them! I am lost without them! Literally!!!!

I'm in the group that was alpha testing the new expansion - it's beta now, closed beta, with a good bit of the newness on the PTR as well. There is a list of addons that work with beta, but I don't see this addon there.

Are you in beta, or will you be updating this for Cataclysm only when the expansion goes live?

Thank you for your hard work and please let me know if there is anything I can do to help with information on specific quests for beta and/or Cataclysm when it goes live. I assumed that they would give beta keys to authors of well-known and well respected addons such as this one in order that they may get the addon working for the expansion as soon as possible, but I haven't read down into all the comments to see if you are, indeed, in beta, and when the addon, if it isn't already, will be ready for the expansion.

Thank you so much.

Regards,

Cami

Should the line be "At level 80:" ?
There is one that says At level 80, so this sounds like a bug, a low priority one, but a bug nonetheless.

tomQuest2 has a nice achievement/quest tracker frame that works just fine with LightHeaded, I used to use nQuestLog as well and find tomQuest2 a nice replacement.

I'm more than happy to help someone fix it, but Lightheaded always does the same thing. I'm not in the habit of changing things on my end to work with other addons, that just becomes a race I can't win and will always lose. If you have a specific addon in mind and want that addon author to work with me, then we could do that.
