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.

nice addon would it be possible to search the database in-game for certain quests? for example, searching for the horde quests for uldaman.

Not really, at the moment. I'm trying to figure out exactly where I'm gonna head with this addon.

On my setup, there's no wrapping on the tooltip for some reason. Is it possible to fix this easily?

Any plans to add the Green text from the top voted comments in the quest comments? Also not sure if this is in, but could you not show the ones that are low rated (<1 rating)?

Great start...

An excellent starting point for presenting this data. Will save me a lot of Alt-Tab deaths.

Seems to work nicely apart from an unexpected behaviour (although it may be intentional at this early stage) where the right pane of the WowHead window hard docks to the right of my screen and expands as I move my quest window.

Not a big issue as I can view what I am after. Just a heads up on something I noted.


p.s. The reason I jumped straight into testing this mod is because you are the author. /bow

I'm not sure.. I'll be working on compatability soon. I think I've worked out the lockup you saw, not sure yet. I'll put more time in tomorrow.

Actually if you read my description, that addon inspired me to write this one. Not a single line of code was taken, and the database is parsed entirely by myself. *shrug*

I don't have any issues with Cladhaire creating a new addon that does the same thing. Alternatives and choice is always good. I write addons to make my life easier when I play the game. Ultimately, it's the game that I want to play--not code writing. If someone else does it in a way I like better, then I'll gladly abandon my own stuff in favor of thiers. This happens ALL THE TIME with stuff I write just for me. Stifling innovation and improvemtn for mere pride's sake is just silly.

Also.. My addon is, in fact, simply an improvement upon qcomment and it would be pretty hypocritical of me to bash Cladhaire for building a new addon (from the ground up) that simply provides the same function.

Re: Re: Re: Gee where have i seen this before?

Couldn't have said it better myself. I liked the concept, but couldn't get the addon working in a barebones UI environment, so I decided to work on one of my own (I had access to the internet, but not WoW while I was out of town). Most of the code was written while sitting in the Cleveland airport. I enjoyed the parsing of the wowhead database, and I have some good ideas for the UI for this addon that I didn't see in either original, which is why I worked on it in the first place.

Seems its not working for me. It brings up the window, but its blank, no info gets posted in it.

Says no comments... but, I know they are there.

Perhaps a conflict with anoth addon? I get no errors or anything, just a blank window.

I know, not much help. Seeing as your the one creating it, i had to check it out.


I tried sid67 addon as well, it showed the comments, but couldn't get them to show with yours.
