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.

Unfortunately, there isn't anything I can do to help you troubleshoot. I suggest disabling most of your addons, and then enabling LightHeaded. Ensure that it works properly, and then begin enabling addons in batched until you find a group that breaks it. One of the addons you just activated was responsible.

This should be done through the addon selection screen, not Khaos.

When I installed the addons + the addons that you recommend in your description no data is received/pulled for the quest "A Grim Task"

Because those quests aren't in the database yet. They'll be added in the next update.

Could you add UberQuest support plz?


the right side of the panels is UberQuest_Details. Changing "QuestLogFrame" by "UberQuest_Details" works.

i think it would be something like
if UberQuest and UberQuest_Details then
anchor = "UberQuest_Details"
else
anchor = "QuestLogFrame"
end

then again, i dont know why i wrote this code since you wrote lightheaded, i guess you know how to do this hehe.

Think you'll be told that you should ask the author of UberQuest to add support for LightHeaded! Seriously though, why do some people keep asking Cladhaire to add support for the various quest log addons that are available?

Following is my question to Cosmos and their reply regarding Lightheaded.

Author of Lightheaded says there is little she can do to support Party Quests.
The notes in Lightheaded say that it will work with any quest log that uses QuestLogFrame. I am not sure if Party Quests uses that.

If Party Quests is not able to use Lightheaded I would love to see it be able to as I group with a great many people that use Party Quest. It would be a problem to have to get everyone to change to a quest log that supported Lightheaded.
----------------------
Response from Morac 10-17-07
Lightheaded doesn't currently work with PartyQuests. I was going to add support for it (and Mobmap), but I've kind of taken a hiatus from WoW at the moment so even if I did add it, I'd have no way of testing it.

I don't think it should be like that. Its not UberQuest getting anchored to the LightHeaded frame. UberQuest author can't do anything about that unless he rewrote the entire addon and used the default questlogframe instead of a custom one.

It simple to add other questlogs support with a code similar to what i posted.
You just need the frame their using.

Even simpler, you make it a local. like "local anchor = "QuestLogFrame"", and like that, users could easiliy manually edit one line in the lua and make lightheaded work with their fav questlog mod.

or another solution would be that, when the LH frame in "unattached", it pops when you select a quest, instead of poping when the questlogframe opens.
Like that ppl with other Questlog mod could still use LH.

maybe because we want to use LightHeaded and don't want to change our questlog to default or DoubleWide...

I tested the code i posted couple post ago and it works fine.

Code:
-- added at the top of the file
local anchor = "QuestLogFrame"


-- around line 716, i added/replaced
function LightHeaded:CreateGUI()
	if LightHeadedFrame then
		return
	end
	
	-- custom questlog support
	if UberQuest and UberQuest_Details then
		anchor = "UberQuest_Details"
	else
		anchor = "QuestLogFrame"
	end

	local lhframe = CreateFrame("Frame", "LightHeadedFrame", getglobal(anchor))

-- and change all others "QuestLogFrame" to "anchor"(without quote) in the file.
this will anchor LH to UberQuest if the mod is loaded, otherwise to default questlog.
just need to add the other quest logs.

Note: The LH frame wont be exactly same height as ur questlog. And you need to open/close the LH frame to update its content for the quest ur watching, but still, i can use LH with UberQuest so im pretty happy

No, at the moment I have no plans to do this sort of thing. Feel free to write a LightHeaded_UberQuest addon that you can host right here on wowinterface.com, so its accessible to all of the users.

Correct. My time is better spent making sure that the relationship with wowhead stays intact, that I can keep up with parsing, and work on my other addons. I barely have the time I do right now to manage the simple codebase I already have. As soon as I start "supporting" other things in my addon, there's more I have to do to maintain that support.

Then I suggest you find someone who is willing to take up adding the support, or write a simple addon yourself which adds it. I will gladly accept addons to LightHeaded, such as LightHeaded_PartyQuests which does the following:

Detaches Lightheaded using API
Places it near PartyQuests so its usable
Makes it so changing the quest in PQ changes the LH data.

I just ask that:
1.) It's hosted here, as an addon to LightHeaded, so everything is in one place
2.) That its not done in LightHeaded itself, because its not necessary.

You think its easy. You're wrong. You also think that using teh LH data is hard, you're wrong there as well.

You don't need to use the default or DoubleWide.. There are at least two other addons that have support for LightHeaded WITHOUT using my frame. They simply use the well defined API to pull the data which is displayed themselves.

Regardless of what you think is or isn't the right way, this is how it is simply because I can't be assed to put any more time in supporting things that I don't use, and would suck up more of my extremely limited time.

Limits.. I have them.

Great, write a plugin. For all the reasons you state here, this is EXACTLY why I wont' start supporting off-shot quest logs in LightHeaded. Its an absolute nightmare.

Because those quests aren't in the database yet. They'll be added in the next update.

The warlock quests are not showing up. The epic steed and some other lower level one (blizzard glitch)for incubus i think. But as for the epic dread steed.
It was showing up prior to lightehead update. Now that I'm on last part it is black. I can temporarily use an older version till the update, but I wan't sure if this was a glitch.


Superb Add on Thanks
