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 just installed Lightheaded and I'm getting the same 1+ minute freeze on startup.

Is the parsing completed and if not is there a date it will be available?

An observation on the problem with the LightHeaded window appearing with incorrect quest information, I was having this issue as well and while LH was up, I clicked on a different quest in my tracker. This prompted it to show the right data. After that, I was able to click on the quest I initially opened and LH showed the right data for that quest as well.

This only happened after I clicked on a LH link to an alternate quest in the chain I was looking at - before doing that, LH would always respect the intially loaded quest info from my click on the Objective Tracker.

Also, while this method does allow for non-search-based LH use after encountering this behavior, LH still retains the last viewed quest initially when I click on a quest in the tracker... While it's open, it respects that tracker clicks, but on initial display, it still shows whatever it was last showing. I seem to recall, dimly (this was ~2 years ago) that I observed some ... odd behavior from LH after using its search and linked-quest features, but clicking on a quest in the log always resolved them. :P Obviously with the death of the Quest Log this won't help people using the addon now, but it might help with the debugging? I hope? ^__^;;

Can you click the close button and then click on another objective to open it?
Yes, that functions properly, but when I open the next objective, the LH comments are still on the last quest I was looking at. There's no way to open the LH comments for the quest I have clicked on, except to use the LH search to find it, and then click on it in the search results.
I get the same error where the lightheaded window won't refresh to current quest

Thank you very much for the time and effort put into creating and maintaining this addon, I will use it even manually if I have to.
They changed the quest log. The addon broke because they removed the quest log. There's no super easy/clear solution to that right now. You can show it manually, or you can click a quest in the objective tracker on the right-hand side of the screen. That should cause the window to be shown.

I don't really do integration with other addons, this is designed to work with the default user interface as much as possible.
