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.

Wait until I get a new one up tonight, then we can troubleshoot more.

I've found a bug!

When I open my quest log using the L key and then hit L again, my computer locks up hard. I can move my mouse but cannot do anything...including alt tab. The only thing I can do is reset my machine manually.

I've done it twice previously by mistake within the past day and just did it twice more.

I'm using the english wow client and a whole lot of mods. However, it happens on my baby warrior alt who uses no mods aside from this & Carto.

That being said...

I love this mod. Since TBC, I've had many graphics issues. Alt tabbing to check Thott/WoWHead seems to make them happen more frequently. This is exactly what I was looking for!

The fact that Clad wrote it doesn't hurt either.

It actually just locks your game, your os not responding isn't my fault =). I'll add a warning, but I'm hoping to have a version up that will fix that and a number of issues soon.

ahhh...it was previously mentioned. Here I thought I was finding something groundbreaking.

Looking forward to an updated version.

Thanks for all your hard work, Clad!

Great mod. Keep me from having to alt-tab all the time.

Two points.

Can you make it so that it doesn't pop up right when you click on the log? maybe an "ALT" modifier or something?

Also, the frame it opens goes clear across the screen (for me anyway). I'll try posting a screeny if you need. I use a widescreen monitor and the frame is ginormous.

Making it work with Uberquest or another quest mod would be great. I use Uberquest but another that maybe more use would be fantastic.

I may just make a slash command that activates it, and have a "mode" that lets you specify whether its automatic or not.

Also, the frame it opens goes clear across the screen (for me anyway). I'll try posting a screeny if you need. I use a widescreen monitor and the frame is ginormous.
This is intentional at the moment, its visually very immature, and anchoring to WorldFrame gave me a good starting point.

EQL3

In the event you planned on making it compatable with EQL3 (the preferred quest log of many), here is the bug info i captured
-----------------
[2007/03/29 12:22:32-37-x1]: EQL3\EQL3_Log.lua:938: attempt to index global 'CHAT_FRAME1' (a nil value)
EQL3\EQL3_Log.lua:915: in function <Interface\AddOns\EQL3\EQL3_Log.lua:800>
<in C code>: in function `QuestLogTitleButton_OnClick'
<string>:"EQL3_QuestLogTitle13:OnClick":2: in function <[string "EQL3_QuestLogTitle13:OnClick"]:1>

Re: EQL3

Sounds like they're hooking the questlog_onclick function, and not doing it very well, heh.

Well they aren't very active in fixing it, so, if you know how, could you tell me? Or perhaps maybe even release an update/fix for EQL3 ?

I have no interest in taking over EQL3. Does that error happen by default, or just when my addon is enabled? I suspect there would just end up being some weird interaction with the hook rules, if that's the case.

The error only happens while your mod is installed.

I love the idea! I'm not getting any data though. I don't see that any other quest mods are required dependencies so I'm not sure what's going on. (Opening my quest log does indeed open up the text pane, but every quest says "no comments found...")


EDIT: Figured it out - conflict with CT's "display quest levels." All CT does is add [level] before quest name. Works awesome as soon as you uncheck that option. Thanks for this great mod! (I wonder if Wowhead would be willing to buy it from you...)

Quest Log Frame Mod?

This looks great -- just what I wanted wowhead_quests for. Which quest log mod are you using to get the two panes?

Thanks!
