LightHeaded  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v80000-1.0.0
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!

Some people have asked, so here is a way to send me donations:

commit 91dfec5dbc302522d4532b12925196b8e6711b83
Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>
Date: Fri Jul 20 11:53:01 2018 +0200

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.

Remove dead code

commit 61d0d2ab136d5f79be4edc62e6ae3cbc2964431c
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 very much appreciate that you have updated Lightheaded to go with this newest 8.0 patch, it's working great! I should also add (in case anyone wants to know) that you have updated Tomtom too, I just d/l'ed the beta and it works great, it even got rid of the crazy arrow when I clicked on that option (I don't like the crazy arrow in the middle of the screen). Anyway, thank you so much, your two addons are my #1's.

Re: BFA Quick Fix!

I was able to use Word Pad (Notepad messed up the formatting of the file) and LH is working perfectly.

Thanks so much for the help!

If I commented out the correct line in LightHeaded.lua, it didn't work. The LightHeaded.lua:73 is throwing me - I don't see that anywhere, which I suspect is the problem.

The BFA pre-patch brings massive changes for addons. I will eventually update LightHeaded, but I do not know how long that is going to take, as I'm about to head away without a computer. I'll do my best and post here when there's an update.

Hi, I'm having the same issue. It won't even load at all. Please tweak this wonderful addon to work with 8.0 BFA!!!

Visibility Bug?

Hi!

When I click on a Quest, it brings up LH automatically, which is fine! But when I shrink the map/close the quest information, LH does not go away. I have to actively close the window.

Is this a bug, or did I change a setting somewhere? How do I get it to go away when I close the map/quest window?

Thank you!

I usually have that happen when I've done a search, or hit the 'back' or other soft buttons inside of lightheaded. I find that briefly hovering over one of them - especially the back button - will flick the tooltip off. It's not an immediate thing, and you have to be careful to get the timing right, but it's also not a omg-difficult thing to learn to do. Having learned it once (after complaining of the same thing ages ago) I have no problem doing it now.

Good luck.
-Barleduq
Thank you for your reply Barleduq. I find that the only way I can get the tooltip to go away is to reload WoW, which is a cumbersome pain in my arse.


So I am asking Cladhaire, from one addon author to another, to revise his code so that this doesn't happen anymore.


Cheers

I get some great help from lunarwtr and we've managed to get updates out for the major changes. I'll continue to do so as long as I'm able to reasonably do so.
