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.

UberQuest was the problem for me too. Unchecked it in the addon screen, LH works fine now.

Having three panes instead of two

Hi --

I've used lightheaded for quite a while and recently when I updated it, it changed - now I am forced to have a large three pane display - the full quest log open, and attached to that the quest that I'm interested in, and then the lightheaded info.

Before, when I opened my quest log, I'd see the normal quest log and then when I clicked on a specific quest, I'd see the lightheaded info pulled from wowhead. I liked that a great deal better as I find it very annoying to have a three panel screen in place - I can't see anything else and that can be dangerous when pausing to look something up.

I like having the lightheaded info attached - that's fine, I just don't understand why it was changed to force me to accept the listing of all my quests AND the quest info of the quest in particular - before it was just the quest in particular and the lightheaded info pertaining to it - I'm not sure what the utility of having a list of all the rest of my quests sitting would be?

Now I have first a full listing of all my quests and attached to that in one double panel, the quest info of the quest I'm looking up, then the lightheaded panel. Three - Quest log and the quest info as one double panel, and the third, the detachable lightheaded panel.

BEFORE I had ONE panel and the lightheaded info attached to it (or I could close it but I never did) -- I don't want to "detach" the lightheaded panel.. that's the ONE I WANT. I want to get rid of that quest log panel... does anyone know what it is that is doing this and how to help, please?

I have not downloaded doublewide.


I hope I've explained this correctly - I'd noticed that it was always displayed as three panels here on the website, but for some reason I had the two and I loved it that way - I can't get used to it this way, it truly bothers me and I want to have it back the way I enjoy using it, the way it's always displayed for me.

Thank you,
[email protected]

I'm sorry to inform you, but LightHeaded did not change. What you are experiencing is another addon. I can assure you that LightHeaded does not force a three-panel quest log. There are a few addons that DO this, namely DoubleWide. If you don't want that, just don't use that addon (which does not in any way come with LightHeaded).

Before, when I opened my quest log, I'd see the normal quest log and then when I clicked on a specific quest, I'd see the lightheaded info pulled from wowhead.

It is not LightHeaded. Disable all other addons to see this for yourself. LightHeaded does not provide a three panel quest log. The screenshots just happen to be that way because I find it unbearable without the three panel quest log.

The issue you are experiencing has nothing to do with LightHeaded. Please report back to let us know what you figure out.

Lightheaded to Curse gaming

Hey.

I just love your add-on. Made my questing experience less frustruating.

I have one request though. Is there a chance that you will upload this wonderfull add-on to Curse-gaming? I am very fond of their update client and would like Lightheaded to be included in that on.

Hope for the best. Regards, Oriban.

No, you will not find LightHeaded uploaded to curse at any point in the near future. Sorry.

Can I be so forward as to ask why? It's an attitude I've seen from a lot of AddOn authors; is there some malignant force behind Curse that I'm just not seeing?

No, none whatsoever. I have no issues with Curse and host a few of my addons there. However Curse remains a real competitor to WowInterface and a few other other related sites (such as WowHead). As the data for this addon comes from WowHead, I'm pretty sure you can connect the dots =). No one here has told me not to, and no on at Curse has told me not to, but I make this decision based on the best interests of my addon.

Re: stop blocking wowmatrix

WowMatrix is disrespectful of author copyright, outright violating it in a number of instances. They have also been leeching the bandwidth of the addon sites which exist solely for the good of the addon community. I have absolutely no plans to make my addons available on WowMatrix. You can easily set up WowInterface to email you when I've released a new version of this addon. The email even contains a simple download link so you don't have to hunt to find anything.

I use the WoWInterface updater and the Curse client to keep my ~60 addons up to date. And there's the email Clad mentioned below. There are other options besides WM's aggregation/exploitation of other sites and manually visiting each site.

I'm also having this issue where it forces me to a triple wide, but I realize that it is because Questguru forces a doublewide, and lightheaded adds a third tab that when you close it, it closes the whole questlog.

I would like to ask if you can integrate the two so I can just close the lightheaded tab or if you would mind if I went into the code and did it myself, I will not realease my changes unless you ask me to.

Thanks

You can close the LightHeaded tab. Click the little nub on the right hand side of the frame.

I'm sorry you have a problem with WM, especially for such a minor issue.

I like your AddOns, but I'm sorry to say I'm not downloading from WI anymore. The decision to block WM WITHOUT warning was BS. WI did not think about the impact this would have on its users on a major patch day.

I was thinking it was going to be hard to replace LightHeaded, but lucky for me you listed the replacement. It may not be quite as good as yours, but it will suffice.

I was also using TomTom, another great AddOn, but luckily I have a replacement for it already.

Thank you for making really good AddOns, it was much appreciated.

You clearly don't understand the problem. There is no MINOR issue. The have been in serious violation of my copyright and licensing for a long time now along with many other authors.

I like your AddOns, but I'm sorry to say I'm not downloading from WI anymore. The decision to block WM WITHOUT warning was BS. WI did not think about the impact this would have on its users on a major patch day.
Listen.. I did not block them, WowInterface did. Also Wowmatrix had plenty of warning, they have been blocked at least 4-5 times in the past and they continue to try to break the protections to get around things, rather than talk like human beings. They are the ones at fault here, and you got stuck in the middle. If you want to be pissed at anyone, be pissed at them for setting up a system that was designed from the get-go to earn them money while leeching off other sites bandwidth.

I'm sorry that you won't use LightHeaded anymore, but I do not appreciate you coming here and spouting nonsense without actually understanding the issue at hand. That's just insulting to me.

I was thinking it was going to be hard to replace LightHeaded, but lucky for me you listed the replacement. It may not be quite as good as yours, but it will suffice.

Alrighty then. Your lack of familiarity with the situation is abundantly clear. Next time perhaps you should ask or become familiar with the situation before blaming everyone who isn't at fault. WowMatrix is the problem, full stop.
