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.

Personal choice. You may think wowace is good for you, but I can speak from personal experience that it's an absolute bloody nightmare for developers. I will continue to post my addons here, and you can be notified by email when an update is available.

FWIW.. I _created_ the wowace svn system.. so I'm completely capable of doing so. I also, having been in that position, have a better reason than most for not hosting my addons there. Thanks.

Take half of what's left out, then log in again. Lather rinse repeat until the only mods left are Lightheaded, TomTom (I know TomTom isn't the problem and I refuse to use WOW without it - it's too 133t) and THE CULPRIT.

If there's an easier or better way to check, I'd love to hear about it! I'll get started on this as soon as I get back from work today or, if it's a quiet day at work sooner. ;-)

Disable all addons
Enable LightHeaded and TomTom
Witness opening the quest log and having it work properly.
Enable some addons
Test
Repeat
When you find a group that breaks it, go one by one through them and figure it out.

Minimalist - The problem only occurs when Minimalist is loaded (it's an Ace2 mod)

I went into the Minimalist options and looked at what might be interacting with anything to do with LH. Unchecked options/interface/display quest levels.

SO, that fixes it for me. Now I'm off to work, with a good excuse for being late.

Q: Why are you late for work, Mr. Entropos! I demand an answer!

A:I had to help track down a 3rd party bug affecting key software used by many at the Department of Homeland Security.*

A: OH. I see, carry on Mr. Entropos. And thank you for doing your bit to help in the war on terror.

* I'm assuming many in the vast DHS play Warcraft and that a few of them use LightHeaded and Minimalist too.

I would if I could at the moment, but I can't. There are issues with the parser that I'm trying to work out tonight. Its not just a magical thing that's easy to do, pulling down the entire database and parsing it. I'll get it up asap.

Exclamation Questlines

Hi, love your mod, but the latest (between r152 to r160) verision does not show the questline, only the current quest.. i really miss the funciton of it, might just been a miscode, but still irritating.. hope you can find and fix the problem.

EQL Functionality?

Any possibility there will be support for Extended Quest Log in the future? It's my all time favorite quest log mod and I'm absolutely sure I'd love this mod if it supported it. Thanks,

In short, I don't support other mods, they support me. This addon can work with any quest log.. but its virtually impossible for me to in any way support them all due to the different way they handle UI.

I've heard that EQL is not being supported anymore, but BEQL is being developed, and works with LightHeaded.
