LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v90200-1.0.0-2020-12-09
by: Cladhaire [More]

Now updated for Classic, check "Other Files" and download the most recent 11302 version!


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!

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.

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.

Quest Series

I remember using lightheaded back in the day and it showed the quest series and what the other quests in the series were, not just the number the quest was in the series. Is there a way to get it to show that again?

thanks for everyones hard work getting it working in classic!

I did find my repository which has the scripts I use to build the data. That might help a bit, if you have a more recent parse. Please shoot me an email directly [email protected] and we can see how best to collaborate.

I won't be putting much energy into LightHeaded but getting it back to a semi-working state is definitely worth spending a bit of time on.

I managed to scrape and parse most of Wowhead's wrath quests and comments into structured json, I think I might be able to just add to your data files. The formatting is a little tricky, but I was able to add a few successfully - just need to get the NPC list updated as well. I've got all 12,900-ish quests available as of today in classic wrath, working on a script to convert them into your format.

Edit: Quests are good, just need to convert NPCs now
I can try to track things down but I really just don't know how much energy I have to try and keep this up to date. Feel free to message me on Discord or send me a PM.

If it's a joke, very amusing indeed. If not a joke, it's a sad day in Azeroth, this has been the most helpful app that I've come across in my 15+ years playing this game. This was the very first addon of any kind that I used in this game, and it made things so much easier. I hope that at some point, you'll change your mind on this. Thanks

Suposedly, if there's a WIP on wrath classic, there will be one for live retail DF

As it is only needed top update TOC and few changes.

Whats the status people?

Wowhead Data

So, just mucking around a bit, and it appears that all the data is there. It just seems that LH is not receiving the correct qID from the game. I have an addon that shows the wowhead link in the quest log, and if you punch the qID into LH search bar it comes up! and works perfectly.

It appears that this should be an easy fix, I personally have 0 coding skills so I have no idea.

Also the only other thing that seems to be wonky is you have to send an /LH Attach everytime you reload to get LH to show

Another odd note. when you reload, and issue the /lh attach it shows the proper quest in LH for just that one time

I can try to find some of my scripts, but aren't most of the Wrath things already in there? I've been parsing since forever and didn't rotate out that I can remember.

Goto line 1635 and change SetHeight(450) to
SetHeight(424).

Goto line 1644 and change SetPoint("LEFT", QuestLogFrame, "RIGHT", -50, 19) to
SetPoint("LEFT", QuestLogFrame, "RIGHT", -8, -1)
Perfect thank you.
My Pleasure
Having an issue after all. Lightheaded never shows up by default. I have to type /lh show everytime I log on.

Goodbye

Sorry to hear you are going to stop producing one of the most valuable addons beyond SL. It has definitely made playing the game much easier.
