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.

Since updating. There is no text in the frame. I don't know if the second error has much to do with the first... [/QUOTE

I have no idea what the first error is.. nothing to do with me as far as I can tell.

Are you using 130 (or whatever the latest one on here is? I just updated it to fix some bugs)

Updated just a few minutes ago. The line is IDCard:RegisterTooltip(lhframe.tooltip),

I commented out the IDCard function and all is now right.

Hrm, no idea why you'd be having that issue.

Doublewide, that's actually stated in the addon description.

This looks really great and I would love to see this working on german client.

Unfortunately I only have the quest names for enUS, due to WoWhead only supporting that locale. I'd love to get it working with others, but I'm not sure how that is possible without a comprehensive quest id to quest name database.
I would like to direct you to Mobmap ( http://www.mobmap.de ), this is a ingame database for quests and positions, and it is working for both german and english versions. There is a database download which includes also the names of the (already known) quest titles and some crytic data for them so maybe this includes the questID.

In addition there is a german website called www.buffed.de, it is a kind of online portal and maintained by some very professional people. They also have a huge database and you can search in both english and german for quest titles ( like in http://www.buffed.de/?f=Auf+der+Such...ra+Leerbringer ).

May be the can help with a database extract and the correct translation matrix, it looks like have the data already.

Last not least it could be possible to build a translation matrix with the help of your german userbase. I don't know much about the ACE librarys but AFAIK there is a "translation" lib called BABLE, would it be possible to add a lib to translate questtitles and let the userbase fill it?

Thanks for reading and many thanks for all your great work.

Absolutely one of my favorite UI Mods Thanks for all the great work on it. I have a feature suggestion :

How about a slash command to look up a quest by name (if that's even possible) so when I'm grouped with someone who isn't enlightened enough to have Lightheaded installed I can view the notes for quests they are on that I'm either not able to get or they have already completed if they tell me the name of the quest?

you can /script LightHeaded:UpdateFrame("Quest Name", quest level, 1)

Ah, cool Thanks for the quick reply too!

Edit: using the /script line I you suggested, I was able to figure out enough LUA to expand it into a /lhfind command that takes a quest name, does the proper capitalization, and finds the quest level (since I might not always know the quest level) and then shows the matching result in the LightHeaded window. Cool stuff.

looks like a great tool... but!

Would it be possible to use Quest-IDs instead of the quest texts which you probably use? This would enable all non-english clients to use this addon...

Would be nice
