LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v100002-1.0.0-2022-12-15
by: Cladhaire [More]

Classic not updated at the moment, only retail.


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!

Updated 2022-12-15 for retail.

My copy of Lightheaded Classic Era

Here's the link of my copy of Lightheaded that works with Classic Era. It includes my changes to add back the Attach and Detach features and also includes changes by frost3ga.

Again, I don't know what causes the 'Quest ID: xxxx' to appear just outside the QuestLog box. I'm not that versed in Lua Wow programming.

You are a GOD.

BTW, is there any way you can fix/restore the attach option that was removed? It was so much nicer when it was attached to the quest interface.
UPDATE: Nevermind, I got it to work. I just used an old version and copy and pasted the relevant code back in. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the slash commands or the enable buttons from the options to work. At least it's always attached which I'm ok with.

The only thing that's odd is it has 'Questid' sticking out the side of the left window frame when I unblock the lines panel.attach from Lightheaded_Config.lua but it seems to be unrelated. Oh well, I can live with it.
Ok, I got the attach and detach features to work. I forgot to add the two functions for each in Lightheaded.lua.

I don't know what else was done to the addon to make it work with Classic Era but I can upload the files I have to my mediafire account and send you a link. Again, I only added the parts that were in a previous version that included the attach & detach features.

Re: Re: Attach frame

Out of curiosity, how does someone like me who has very little training in programming in Lua for wow learn all about Lua programming? I'm just amazed how so many know about it but there's absolutely NO definitive training online anywhere. How did you guys even learn all this?

Honestly I'm unlikely to spend a large amount of time adding/building features for LightHeaded in its current state. Keeping it working is the main thing right now, but the purpose of the addon isn't as strong as it used to be when I created it.

Sorry, that's not something supported right now and I'm not planning on adding it at the moment. The things in the text that are clickable should be able to be clicked, but if you just want to type or pass info along in chat that's not something that works today.

Yes, I'm playing Classic. I'm just passing along the relevant data for troubleshooting.
