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.

I'm waiting to hear back from Cladhaire regarding participating in project as well. I've created some parsers over the weekend and updated the data on my local copy. Seems to work well. The addon itself is still pretty solid. Only had to make a couple bug fixes to the code that interfaces with the continent & zone mapping calculations.

I have the file listed on the front page. With the map open, I put the command /lh show and nothing visible happens. With the map closed, I put in the command /lh show and nothing visible happens.

What should I be doing to make lightheaded show up?

This wasn't really updated to work well in WoD due to the way the quest log was pulled into the map. There was an addon created, Legacy Quest, that would give you the old style quest frame when you pressed the letter L, at which point you could give the command /lh show and lightheaded would come up and work. I've used it leveling toons up, through the last couple of years.

Given the amount of work needed, I don't hold out much hope, but I will continue to keep it and watch it for leveling, as it's that awesome.

Wondering if this is being updated with patch 7.0 or the current version still work? Thanks.

So sorry, I didn't read the earlier comments. My deepest condolences.

Update?

Love the addon, and use this and TomTom religiously. I do not think I could handle to grind some quests without them. Thank you very much for spending your time on producing such a great product.

Saw that you were looking at input for TomTom changes, so was wondering if there was any chance of a parsing of comments for LH anytime soon?

Thank you,
Bruce

Sorry to hear what happened. Not asking for updates or anything. I just want to know if anyone has confirmed that this works for Tanaan Jungle? This was always my go to addon whenever I started playing again. I've always loved this addon and pointed it out to friends that were new to the game.

Thank you for the time and effort you have put in your addons, i have been using both lightheaded and tomtom for years, and i hope one day when you feel better that you will return to us. But take the time you need, as manny have said before me, we can wait, and i think i speak for us all when i say that we understand your situation.

take all the time you need to get all in your head straight and to be there for the other family members , now is a time where people come together to draw strength from each other to pass the obstacles life gives us and become stronger out of it ,

again sorry to hear this news and the addon can wait , when it's to be done it will be done when time comes .
