LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v80000-1.2.0
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 8.0

This disables POI clicking integration, that will need to be fixed by finding
the correct function to hook to intercept. Searching and manually opening
works.

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.

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>
Date: Sat Jan 31 15:27:56 2015 +0100

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.

I'll do my best, but its hard to commit to regular updates. As for the filename, sure I can re-add that to the release version, but it's also included in the commit log/changelog that's released and updated with each addon.
I understand, which is why I realize it's a major request. When I decided that 'about a week after' for major patches, as an alternate, my hope is that a week will give time for folks to comment on wowhead aboutg the new stuff, so the parse can pick it up and include it.

Thanks for the consideration, I do appreciate it. Do you have a patreon?

The quest you refer to had some strange CTRL characters in one of the comments that was causing the addon problems. It should be resolved next update.

No joy yet

Took the time to try disabling all but lh this AM (simply clicked Disable All, then checked off LH to enable it only) ... no LH window plus /lh config or /lh autodetails did nothing. No error messages either. Last ditch effort is to uninstall LH completely and install fresh.

Any other suggestions welcome.

Hi folks. I appreciate the reports and the kind words.

Unfortunately I don't actively play WoW, so if you are experiencing an issue I need you to disable other addons other than LightHeaded (and any Bugsack/Buggrabber you use to catch errors) and find a way to reproduce the issue you're experiencing. Any error messages you have will be useful in resolving any issues.

Unfortunately when I go into the game and click around I can't reproduce these issues, so I need help in finding out what might be happening.

Yeah ... thought of that and procrastinated. At 70 y.o. my play time for Wow, D3, etc is sorta limited and didn't wanna waste it "not" playing. But I guess it wouldn't take that long. Thanks for letting me know it's likely on my end.

The addon is fully working for me. Could you test turning off other addons and loading only lightheaded. See if you experience the same issues. If you do not, narrow down conflicting addon.

BTW

What you may not hear enough is how much this addon/your work is appreciated. LH is likely my favorite addon!! No stuff, man!

Will be glad when it works again ... give a shout if you think it's on my end ... haven't changed anything else, but ya never know.

maybe i'm stupid :/

i have a small problem, i allways found it stupid that whenever i click on a quest in the Quest Tracker, LightHeaded would open automaticly.
now after years of using this great addon i found out about /lh autodetails, but this command toggle is not working for me, or it's not the option i'm looking for(this toggle makes no difference) :/

now my question, could you please add an option for modifier keys?
a modifier key like [shift] or [alt] that, if pressed, together with me (right)clicking on a quest in the Quest Tracker, will open LightHeaded.

sorry for my english but i only just woke up


anyway, thank you very much for LightHeaded/TomTom and have a nice day
