LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70200-1.0.0-2017-07-31
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!

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.

Just installed the addon, so I have the version you uploaded today;


With only Lightheaded loaded, latest version, typing /lh show then /lh attach does not work. It just spits out all the command line options to the chat window and does not attach the lh window to the side of the map quest window.

Clicking on a quest does not do anything. I'm guessing it's supposed to open the quest info in the lh window?

Do you have to type /lh show every time you want to view quest info in Lightheaded?

Also tried using this with all of my addons enabled (mainly ElvUI with Shadow & Light, Skada, Dugi, Bugsack, and Classic Quest Log).

7.1

Hi,

Firstly allow me to say I LOVE this addon. I have used it for years, and finding that it has been updated again has made my week!

I have noticed an issue since 7.1 this morning. When quest are clicked now, lightheaded does not automatically disply the info for that quest. It seems it does not find the quest so you have to type the name every time to find the info.

I think it has something to do with it not picking up the version in the head of the window. I have added i pic here: [url="https://postimg.org/image/jmf24h7a5/"]

Hope this helps any diagnosing in the future

And thanks again for what I consider the most important addon in WOW!!!

I used to use this addon ages ago, Legion made me come find it again! Please please make it work with world quests! as they do not show in quest log you can simply make it compatible with "Word Quest Tab" which adds a tab on quest log for world quests!

Thank you for you!

Hi Cladhaire!

when you announced that you would no longer be developing addons for wow, I was crushed. I you were truly my hero when it came to addons but I completely understood why you chose the path you did.

So when I renewed my subscription for Legion and started scratching around to update my addons, I had this thought to see if someone had taken over the development of your addons.

When I saw you were back I truly almost shouted out a huge "WAHHOOO!" hehe!

So firstly, thank you so much for you! you are oe of the great addon legends.

now, down to my question: I noticed the window frame doesn't scale nicely to the resolution compared to the other game windows. I apologise upfront if I should have seen any comments that might have been passed already about this but there are so many pages, I really don't feel like reading it all.

So is this something I need to fix or determine if its an addon causing it or is this something you are aware of?

Let me know soonest.
Wolvy

Classic Quest Log and Lightheaded already work together

At least on my system, it does. Pops right up - not attached, but hey, I'll take it working as is. I have the 'goes to the first quest I opened today' problem, but it's intermittent and I can't figure out what triggers it. I'd *still* rather have it this way than not at all.

Did you try the chat command /lh show ?

i just have a question, i think you don't really do addon integration ( i'm not sure it's been awhile lol ) but i was thinking .... ,

i use the addon called Classic Quest Log [ http://www.wowinterface.com/download...cQuestLog.html ] ,because lets face it a good old log beats the new one and it would be very cool if they would work together like pre-WoD quest log ^^

i'm certainly not gonna push this but if you think about it that would be very nice


keep up the good work !
I use and love Classic Quest Log as well.
Firstly thank you soo much for updating the addon I've always used it and love it. I use classic quest log too, soo much better than the new horrible thing and I side with OP also would be nice to get them to work together if poss

Can you explain precisely how to trigger this behaviour? I can't fix it if I can't observe it so any help you provide would be greatly appreciated.
I have the same problem as well, I was able to isolate it and it happens when I have carbonite installed as well. It will get lower fps for about a minute the it will turn back to normal, but when you open your quest log it will have lower fps again. Thanks for the addon!

I have the same problems with LH as has been posted by Hnybear.

As Hnybear said, clicking on the quest name in the quest tracker under the minimap is the only way I know to have LH open.

Can you provide a precise description of how to reproduce this? I need to know specifically where and in what window you are clicking (since there are about a dozen ways to click on a quest). I should be able to look at it this evening.


This flaw is always there. disabling all addons but LH and rebooting still produces this.
