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 suggestion for updating

You could build an EXE file that would grab new data from Wowhead and update the .Lua like Wowecon does.

http://www.wowecon.com/

This would let your users update th information and you would not need to update the mod as comments increase. It would also allow you to focus on upgrades to this truly amazing mod. I have added this one to my guilds list of must haves. In my opinion it's right up there with auctioneer.

This would also be horribly unkind to wowhead. I won't be releasing the parsing script I use anytime soon. I'll continue to update and add new features.

True that.. would be horrible to wowhead.
IF you would go for a updater your should make the db and the program should download that.

But this is great
Only thing im missing is a button to show/hide the frame.

Weekly Update?

Sorry to hassle. So the way to update log entries is to download weekly updates, right?

Cool mod, just downloaded but I got a question. What mod are you using for your quest log that it expands it to show the quests on one side and the text on the other?

Thank you very much. I love the mod by the way, keep up the great work.

EDIT : Hmmm, when I install Doublewide... my whole quest thing is bugged. Like the buttons to show or minimize certain quest areas starts bugging out and the Lightheaded just shows one quest's comments so when I click on another quest... nothing...
Any suggestions?

here is some code to make cart_waypoints work with lightheadeds click on coordinates feature. edit and replace their function with the following funtion in your lightheaded.lua.....


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
elseif Cartographer_Waypoints then
x,y = tonumber(x),tonumber(y)
if x and y then
Cartographer_Waypoints:SetPointAsWaypoint(x/100, y/100, string.format("%s [%d]", name, level))
Cartographer_Waypoints:UpdateWaypoint();
end
end
return
end

Thumbs up Database update needed

Heya! I love your addon, its great i use it with TomTom and have no issues to complain about,

though i would like to ask for a feature, the ability to copy a web url from the window, so that it can later be pasted into a web browser.

Oh and one final thing, the database needs an update... i was thinking it was going to be weekly like you said. I can tell its out of date due to the fact certain quests arent showing up since patch 2.1.0. Obviously the new factions etc.

Love the addon, thanks

One question, is there anyway to change the size of the frame that displays the Wowhead info? At 1280x1024, with DoubleWide installed, I can't see a big chunk of the Wowhead info, it goes off the screen. Thanks for any help in advance.

The is no way to do it with an option but it's easy enough to modify. Just look at the line 106 to 108.

Here are the values I use:
Code:
lhframe:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", QuestLogFrame, "TOPRIGHT", -40, -25)
lhframe:SetHeight(440)
lhframe:SetWidth(390)

It'll be much more conservative in the next version, I just have to test for the smaller resolutions.
