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.

My condolonces, but I already said so on facebook. She was an amazing woman based on her site. Stay strong and try to smile even now. I think she'd like that, that you think of her remembering the beautiful moments and the joyous ones - even though it's pretty impossible for you now.

Big hugs...

just curious

Curious if one or more of these could be disabled...

If they are level ranged..


...to maybe save on some bulk

IE: only playing level 90-100 chars

Thanks

A big thanks, Clad

Love the addon and appreciate all the work you smart guys put in to these. Had a feeling (even before I looked at these most recent posts) that you knew and were working on the one little glitch with pulling up the correct quest when its clicked. And we certainly can live with the *search for it* workaround to get the info that so many of us have come to rely on until it's fixed..

:thumbsup:

I don't know why you're right-clicking.

Click one, click another and it'll fix itself. I'm working on it. No need to be rude.

Smile Re: old quest showing, is there a reset?

hmm figured out I can type in the quest in the little search window, works well, but clicking on the quest list and then having it pop up like at the first instance would be very helpful.

But I can live with this.. and I get great info this way without having to switch windows.

Thanks,
Ellen in Canada

Unhappy old quest showing, is there a reset?

I am just using this for two days and I also encounter the previous quest showing instead of the clicked on one.

Is there a way to clear the cache or have a reset? to have it kick in again? Right now at least WoW restart will do the trick but that's, to say the least, awkward...

I really like it, when it works!!! Something to stick by.

Thanks,
Ellen in Canada

I'm having issues using the addon. I have the Loremaster addon installed, but I don't know what's causing the issue. I don't get any errors or anything, but the current version at the top of the window says "LightHeaded v.SVN" and every time I open a quest (not from the Loremaster addon but from my quest log) it pulls up the previous quest I navigated to manually (since I have to use the search function), not the new quest I just opened.

Also, waypoint clicking into TomTom is not working. I have the latest versions of both addons installed, but I'm not sure where the waypoints are being sent. For example, I'm currently in Howling Fjord at 31.27, 75.67. I clicked on the waypoint in the first comment of The Frozen Heart of Isuldof (33,75), but it created the waypoint 10,125 yards away from me. I can't actually find the TomTom waypoint on my map anywhere after several minutes of looking, but it does have the correct name ("[LH] The Frozen Heart of Isuldof"). The tooltip says "Waypoint to 33.00, 75.00", so that's correct, and if I manually create the arrow using "/way 33 75" it is created at the correct location, but clicking the coords doesn't work.

Thank you so much, this is an enormously helpful addon!

I just installed Lightheaded and I'm getting the same 1+ minute freeze on startup.
Just chiming in on this glitchy duality, same exact symptoms. (To be fair, carbonite quests causes it's own, much briefer, post-login pause. The two together is over a minute. Probably some kind of race? )
