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.

That is not correct, they have a license to use them. This is based on the terms of use and conditions presented when you create an account on their site, same as any other user contributed site. Wowhead does not require that you relinquish all copyright to them, so the author still retains copyright, while granting a limited license to the website. This is standard stuff =)

sorry, but from a legal standpoint, the owners of the site DO in fact, own all the comments.

I've not experienced this, but I'll see what I can do to resolve it.

FWIW, I am 50/50 about Wowhead's right to that data. They bought the site from the original 'owners', and so while the data was culled via their game tool, 100% of the comments, which is at least half of the value of the site, comes from contributions of members (who had no say on the sale of the site). So it will likely never sit well with most gamers that Wowhead owns all of that content, legal rights and all that aside.
I know the original owners, and I know the current owners. I also never made a claim that they own the comments, because they frankly do not. They do, however, have legal recourse when it comes to the comments since users grant an implicit right to the site to display the user content, same as any content on a user-contributed site, including Wowinterface. We don't need to debate it any further =)

Just type /lhdetach (if I remember correctly).
if you detach the lightheaded pane and move it slightly to the side, it does remember where you put it so the two sit nicely side by side. Given the amount of aggravation that other addon creators have with the frames interface, I personally agree with Claire's decision not to mess with the frames.

It IS a touchy subject. Wowhead is a commercial site, and they make they money from web traffic and ad revenue. Displaying their information in-game or out of context is taking traffic from them, so naturally they would be protective of making that information 'easy' to redisplay.

I don't think you're being rude.. it just seems a bit rather expectational and slightly preempting antagonism, but that's why I asked =)

Your tone confuses me quite a bit. Is it not being civil if they decide to not give you what you're asked for?

Best of luck.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Zone Quests

Regardless, if you contact them, please refrain from using LightHeaded as evidence to support what you're asking for. Better not to rock the boat.
Rest assured, I did not do that I merely asked for either a raw access (being hopeful here) or asked if there is/can be some API returning results in CSV/XML format instead of full HTML. Let's see if they're civil about this.

I mean, if I'm totally fine with someone reverse-engineering and duplicating my work byte for byte, I might just as well give them the source code... Hmm.
Its a tenuous relationship. I wouldn't say they are 'fine' with anything. It's a commercial site owned by a business. I wouldn't get into making too many assumptions.

You can always ask, but I was not successful in that avenue, and I'm REALLY good about attribution.

This didn't used to be a problem for me because I used to use tomQuest, with it's customized tracker, but lately I've just been using the Blizzard one since it is pretty adequate now.
Once the single-pane quest tracker is open, all you have to do is press the "L" key on your keyboard, and the full tracker will open-- including the Lightheaded window. It will open at the quest you originally clicked-- but you may have to click on the quest title in the list on the left, to get Lightheaded to go to the proper comments.

I parse it, I don't have a dump. No, I will not make my dump available, as I do not have the right to redistribute someone else's material.

I have this problem too but I believe I figured it out -- when I type L for log, LH shows. When I click on a quest from the in-game tracker, and the log pops up, LH does not show.
