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.

Click okay, revert to a previous version, or wait until I remove it sometime this weekend.

LightHeaded does not come with any waypoint arrow.

Strange text fixed

It would appear that the addon was indeed not installed correctly, i suspect there was a problem unzipping directly to the wow addon folder. I fixed the problem by unzipping to a folder elsewhere on the pc, then cut and paste the lightheaded folders into the wow addon folder. Don't know why this worked but it did.

Your addon is not installed correctly or is not up to date. This data is available in the addon.

Your addon is not installed correctly, or you are getting a Lua error.

You can both follow the instructions in this thread: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=18962

If you see a comment that is not listed in the database, you must give me the numeric quest id as well as the comment you are not seeing so I can research it.



That is not anything with LightHeaded, but instead with the mod you are using for waypoints. This is either TomTom, Cartographer or MapNotes. TomTom still (and always has) had the right-click menu on wapoints. I'm not sure what you've changed.




You might have experienced it and just not known it. It is a real issue, but detecting it without false positives is very very difficult.


redownloaded both tomtom and lightheaded, fixed the problem

NM...I just double checked my wow folder, seems I now have 2 wow>interface>addon folders. I unzipped into the "second" interface folder and it works beautiful! ...Maybe the other poster should check if this has happened to him/her also!!

I have verified that this data exists in the data files and that with the latest version of the addon the quest information is displayed properly. This was verified by loading in-game and updating the frame with the appropriate quest ids, the same as would happen when you click on your quest log.

Please ensure you have installed the latest version of LightHeaded properly and report back to me.
