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.

Really, I thought CT and Cartographer were the tip top map mods. Oh well, I guess i won;t get to use that functionality. /cry

Well, that functionality is in TomTom, not LightHeaded so this would be the wrong addon to post on. LightHeaded merely provides the comments, TomTom places them on the minimap when clicked.

Any known conflicts with other addons? I keep getting locked up whenever I click on a quest. I use extended quest log, which looks compatible based on your screen shot

My screenshot doesn't use EQL, that's DoubleWide from WoWInterface.com. Supposedly there's an issue with EQL, but I haven't had a chance to look at it-- and it works with all other quest logs without crashing.

Scrolling?

Hi.

First of all, thanks so much for all your hard work. I'm a perfectraid evangelist as well

My question is probably stupid. When wowhead feeds more than one page of info the lightheaded, I can't figure out how to scroll down. What am I doing wrong?

Also, is there any kind of /lightheaded interface to set up preferences or is it pretty much wysiwyg?

Thanks again.

OMG this is AWSOME!!!
is there a way to have it auto update? like a third party softweare that will auto download and install info?

Also is there somthing like this for allakazam? They seem to be the most reliable to me soo far.

Love the work.

The user comments on wowhead are extremely good, and no, this is all I have to parse right now. It will not automatically update, but its easy to be notified when there's a new version, simple click "Add to Favorites" and you'll be notified by email when there's a new bversion.

I was hoping this would add map notes to cartographer/metamap etc the way it does for TomTom but as the author said he didn't plan on implimenting that I've had a stab at doing it for cartographer.

I'm a complete beginner with lua so if this causes you problems or if its coded in a stupid way I appologise.


In the Lightheaded directory find a file called LightHeaded.lua

In that file find the following:

Code:
function LightHeaded.OnHyperlinkClick(self, link, text, button)	
	ItemRefTooltip:ClearLines()
	ItemRefTooltip:SetOwner(UIParent,"ANCHOR_PRESERVE")

	-- Check for coordinate href's
	local x,y,name,level = link:match("^coord:(%d+%.?%d*):(%d+%.?%d*):(.+):(%d+)")
	if x and y then
		-- Set a waypoint
		if TomTom then
			x,y = tonumber(x),tonumber(y)
			if x and y then
				TomTom:AddWaypoint(x, y, string.format("%s [%d]", name, level))
			end
		end
		return
	end

	local title,level,idx = link:match("^comment:(.+):(%d+):(%d+)$")
	idx = tonumber(idx)

	local key = string.format("%s:%s", title, level)
	local v = quests[key][idx]
	v = huffman.decode(v, rev)

	local qid,cid,rating,indent,parent,date,poster,comment = 
		v:match("^(%d+):(%d+):(%-?%d+):(%d+):(%d+):(%d+/%d+/%d+ %d+:%d+:%d+):([^:]+):(.+)$")

	ItemRefTooltip:AddLine(title .. "[" .. level .. "]", 1, .82, 0)
	ItemRefTooltip:AddLine("Posted by " .. poster, .9, .9, .9) 
	for line in comment:gmatch("%s*([^\n]*)%s*") do
		ItemRefTooltip:AddLine(" ",1,1,1,true)
		ItemRefTooltip:AddLine(line,1,1,1, true)
	end

	ItemRefTooltip:AddLine("\nComment courtesy http://www.wowhead.com",0.5, 0.5, 0.5)
	ItemRefTooltip:Show()
end
and replace it with

Code:
function LightHeaded.OnHyperlinkClick(self, link, text, button)	
	ItemRefTooltip:ClearLines()
	ItemRefTooltip:SetOwner(UIParent,"ANCHOR_PRESERVE")

	-- Check for coordinate href's
	local x,y,name,level, zone = link:match("^coord:(%d+%.?%d*):(%d+%.?%d*):(.+):(%d+)")
	if x and y then
		-- Set a waypoint
		if TomTom then
			x,y = tonumber(x),tonumber(y)
			if x and y then
				TomTom:AddWaypoint(x, y, string.format("%s [%d]", name, level))
			end
		end
		if Cartographer_Notes then
			x,y = tonumber(x),tonumber(y)
			if x and y then
			zone =  Cartographer:GetCurrentEnglishZoneName()
			Cartographer_Notes:SetNote(zone, x/100, y/100, name, "LightHeaded")
			end
		end		
		return
	end

	local title,level,idx = link:match("^comment:(.+):(%d+):(%d+)$")
	idx = tonumber(idx)

	local key = string.format("%s:%s", title, level)
	local v = quests[key][idx]
	v = huffman.decode(v, rev)

	local qid,cid,rating,indent,parent,date,poster,comment = 
		v:match("^(%d+):(%d+):(%-?%d+):(%d+):(%d+):(%d+/%d+/%d+ %d+:%d+:%d+):([^:]+):(.+)$")

	ItemRefTooltip:AddLine(title .. "[" .. level .. "]", 1, .82, 0)
	ItemRefTooltip:AddLine("Posted by " .. poster, .9, .9, .9) 
	for line in comment:gmatch("%s*([^\n]*)%s*") do
		ItemRefTooltip:AddLine(" ",1,1,1,true)
		ItemRefTooltip:AddLine(line,1,1,1, true)
	end

	ItemRefTooltip:AddLine("\nComment courtesy http://www.wowhead.com",0.5, 0.5, 0.5)
	ItemRefTooltip:Show()
end


@Cladhaire I hope you don't mind me posting this little hack... Top addon by the way. I gave you 5 stars

***edit ***

Forgot to mention, this is a bit naff as it puts the note into your current zone. I figured this would be fine for most situations but it wont work if for example and NPC is Ashenvale gives you a quest that takes place in the barrens. If someone can come up with a way to grab that info reliably from wowhead comments then I'll have a go at it but I can't think of a way of doing it without getting everyone to write their coords like: Barrens, 15, 77

YOu, or any of those authors can give me a diff, and I'll include it, but I won't be working hard to update it anytime cart breaks something. That's what I meant. I'll put this in the next version, if it works.

I like Bulluk's addition for Supporting Cartographer. But i am not sure about him i would perfer to use the Waypoint system in Cartographer over just the standard notes. Which would just be
Code:
		if Cartographer_Waypoints then
			x,y = tonumber(x),tonumber(y)
			if x and y then
				Cartographer_Waypoints:SetPointAsWaypoint(x/100, y/100)
			end
		end
instead of just the Notes part of Cartographer. This auto queues waypoints and gives you arrorws showing where they are located.
