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.

A couple of thoughts:

1. When LH is in attached mode, I always expect clicking the X to close the quest log, not the LH window. It makes some sense as is, I just don't expect it, because it's the upper-right-most X in the quest log window.
2. In detached mode, it'd be nice to be able to open and close LH separately from the quest log.

I'm using LH along with DoubleWide, and the net result is that the quest log frame is HUGE, so I want a way to just display the LH notes without having the whole quest log up on screen.

Please ensure you're actually using the newest by comparing the version number int he LH window and the version number listed on this site. If this is happening, its a conflict with another addon, so you'll need to do some troubleshooting to figure out what's happening.

The behavior you're seeing is what people expect, and want, when they have Doublewide installed. If you, like me, prefer to just have an expandable/retractable LH frame off of the normal quest log, just turn off Doublewide.

Cool Skinner / Lightheaded 2.4 compat

using fubar 3.0 ( 2.4 compat ), skinner ( 2.4 compliant ) and LH ( 2.4 compat ).

all addons clean installed for 2.4 compliant versions and as many ACE as poss ( already got rid of all conflict apart from those that cropped up for 2 days with last mini-patch ).

only thing i've noticed is both LH and Outfitter now sit offset both left and down while skinner is running ( dock fine while skinner disabled, checked by disabling skinner via ACP and reloading UI ); so to get LH sitting beside QL when skinner running having to detach and manually move to position.

any idea is this a bug / deficiency in LH or in Skinner, since worked fine before 2.4 patch for Skinner.

if it's skinner causing this NP, and kudos on what along with mobmap and cartographer make my questing and grinding so much easier.

EvilVonBek

p.s. if you know how to skin LH for Skinner easily could you post it as i'm probably not the first one getting this or think it may be a nice bit of code for next version then would be much appreciated for lazy people like me that hate the basic interface and keep tweaking for a nice simple clear UI.

again thanks and kudos..... keep up the good work

Like a previous poster i got following error with latest LH 233 version although i don't use nQuestlog:
..\LightHeaded\LightHeaded.lua:114: attempt to compare number with string

The only quest relative mod is FuBar_QuestsFu. With previous LH version i got the 113 error and i didn't get any LH comments by clicking on the quests from QuestsFu, but LH worked from the normal blizzard questlog.

Now with LH 233 i get the 114 error and although i see the LH frame, it's empty, i don't see any comments.

I don't support skinner, whatsoever. Nothing's change in LightHeaded, so I suggest you contact jnc.

LightHeaded's API change in 2.4 to accomodate the new quest identifiers. You will need to take this up with the author of FuBar_QuestsFu.

I didn't find out HOW it comes that it always pops back to page 1, but i do know that if you just don't "-" your quest tabs, it will work. so keep all your quest tabs open and it won't pop back to page 1

Cool, was just in case this had been due to changes to LH for 2.4. will make sure i got latest V of skinner and see if it's been fixed. if not as said i'll pass it onto JNC with a list of what i'm running to see if it's either a code glitch or something else i'm using and not skinner.


cheers for answering so promptly and again Kudos on what has become one of the few things I'll never delete from my Add-ons folder unless blizzard ever put WoWhead into the game ( and that'll happen about the same time the game goes free )

I've had to disable lightheaded again. Everytime I click on a quest, doesn't matter which one, it always changes to another quest I don't want. It will not stay on one quest. I'm also getting tons of error messages when I try to mouse over the loot rewards from quests. I've disabled all addons except for lightheaded to make sure nothing else was causing the problem.

Then you aren't using the latest update from LightHeaded. I'm sorry to be so stubborn, but people have downloaded LightHeaded over two million times and this issue just isn't one that people have.

The ONLY reason LightHeaded would go to a different quest is because you have another addon that is interfering with the stock API.

Thanks.

Edit: Actually, there have been reports of other AddOns causing this paging problem with LightHeaded. My report was that it was CarbonQuests. I also have seen several times the selected quest switching problem mentioned by Maleran. Anyway, it started doing it again for me last night, and I have not been using CarbonQuests for a long time. I am not sure, but it may have been EquipCompare that was doing it this time; maybe all along. It may be intermittent, but shortly after removing EquipCompare (since Armory has that function built in now) I noticed that LightHeaded page scrolling was working again.

Yes, I DO have the latest version of Lightheaded and I have disabled ALL additional addons and reloaded them one at a time to try and figure out which one could be causing the conflict. I love using Lightheaded and have enjoyed all the info placed in it. It's a great addon but if I can't resolve the problem I seem to be as you say the only person having it then I'll have to find another quest log addon and hope that Lightheaded doesn't give me errors with it. Are only certain quest log addons better to use with Lightheaded or does it matter?

Thank you.

Well, here's the deal. Does it work properly when you have only LightHeaded enabled? Run the following macro, which may help us figure out what is going on:

/run local old=SelectQuestLogEntry; function SelectQuestLogEntry(...) ChatFrame1:AddMessage(debugstack()) return old(...) end

That should print a chat message every time something calls that function. Could you get me some prints of that happening that isn't a direct result of you clicking? That may help me figure it out.
