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.

Re: Re: Re: Not working with Cartographer Waypoints

I think if you have waypoints and tomtom installed there is a slight overlap- both UI mods use the /way command to set a waypoint.

It seems Cartographer, at least on my machine, would block the command from getting to TomTom - removing Cartographer-Waypoints allows the /way command to get to TomTom.

I too like the arrow but I prefer the method TomTom displays the waypoint on the minimap.
Again, next version of TomTom will do the same.

Errors

Since I've updated this addon, Cartographer has been giving me error after error. I though that I might be cratographer, so I updated it. But that wasn't the problem. So I reverted back to the version of this addon that I was using before.

Scratch t hat, it was unfortunately Cartographer. I removed and had to revert back to my old favorite, MetaMap

I like your addon, thx for your great work

But i have a small problem with deDE loc, all quests with letters , , , , , , do not work. I tried to change this letters to
-- \195\134
-- \195\150
-- \195\156
-- \195\159
-- \195\164
-- \195\182
-- \195\188
like
["Der groe Knochenwurm"] = "The Big Bone Worm"
to
["Der gro\195\159e Knochenwurm"] = "The Big Bone Worm"
and it worked, but there are to many letters to change manually and i'm not a coder to help me help myself
it would be nice, if you could do something about this

Thanks, this was all I really needed. Search and replace in a text editor ftw!. I'll try to push a new update out.

It should be at the moment with most quests. Please download and test it out.

Using Elkano's FrameResized

There might be some of you using Elkano's FrameResized (EFR) over at the Ace web site. This is a nice add on which resizes some default UI frames like CraftUI, TradeSkillUI, TrainerUI, QuestLog and LootFrame to show more lines. However this mod doesn't like the Doublewide add on which makes Lightheaded usable when you open the QuestLog. There is a simple fix for this.

Using a text editor go to your FrameResized.lua file inside your FrameResized file and look at line number 4 and you will see "local FR_QuestLog = true" . Change the true to false and save. This will allow you to use the Doublewide add on with your quest log but still have the benefits for your other windows.

Just started usin the mod today, Looks great... but... When you view the info as a single page even when not viewd as a single page it doesnt seem to sort quest comments by date, I mean it kida does but the dates look all screwy, will try to explain more if needed but u should see what im talking baout when viewing the comments.

Edit : Also, your mod seems to work PERFECT with this... I think it works great with this because I have a WS monitor so everything shows fine when expanded... but that aside the reason I even bring it up is that there seems to be a small "glitch" woth it when the "info" page that yor mod adds is collapsed it doesnt seem to fuly merge with the quest window... u can still see the red x.. when closed it basically hangs out a tad... if you install the above linked mod with your quest mod you should see what I mean... Anyway, I wonder if you could maybe implement a "patch" into your mod so it integrates fine and gets rid of the "hangover"

One slight annoyance using this mod. I typically open quest log to see what is available and at the same time I would been able to open the macro window to type in a LFG macro for LFG channel or local chat the title of the quests. But now with the double wide the macro closes and I have to shuttle back and forth between the macro window and quest log to type in the titles. Is there a way to move the quest log window or temp close the double wide window so I could keep both macro and quest log open?

That's not an issue with LightHeaded, if you don't want DoubleWide or are looking for some way to move the quest log, you'll need another addon. All LightHeaded does is add the extra quest information panel.

Cladhaire I understand what you're saying. I like this mod very much and the Doublewide view. What I am asking is that the mod be made movable or that there be a toggle to temporarily close the double wide window so that I can work with the quest log AND the macro window simultaneously. All that I am asking is a effort be made to increase the utility and flexibility of this mod.

DoubleWide has nothing to do with LightHeaded. I'm not sure how much clearer I can be about that. DoubleWide is another addon.

If I'm not mistaken...

you're referring to the fact that the Quest Log is now twice as big - the original size of the log, plus a new frame for the comments. If that is in fact what you mean (and you're not referring to the addon actually named DoubleWide), then just click the little tab on the right side, and the comments window will happily slide away from view.
