ScrapBook  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.1.0.35
by: Ne0nguy [More]
About ScrapBook:
So you have hundreds if not thousands of hours on World of Warcraft right? Well what do you have to show for it? Sure your character may look pretty awesome, but that isn't very relevant if your trying to figure out what you got done last week.

ScrapBook is designed to take the most candid snapshots of your ongoing adventures in the World of Warcraft.
It takes a snapshots on specified intervals (defaulting to every 10 mins), leaving a watermark in the upper left and right corners with your characters name, realm, guild, rank, level, current xp, location, and a time stamp.

Google Screensavers works great with this addon when running a 'Cross Fade' of photos from your screenshots folder. You will find lots of mid-combat shots of PvE, PvP, and Raids. Many of which are humors or very cool looking at the least.

Been meaning to fix that for a while but have been very busy lately.
Hopefully that will do it. If you still have the issue after updating please let me know.

CPU usage

According to OptionlessHouse, this addon is using massive amounts of CPU cycles. I am not sure why.

FYI.

It seems 3.2 has reintroduced the "Screen-shot overlay getting stuck while alt-tabbed"; bug. I'm sure your genius will fix it though ;-) Just a heads up.

Sorry to be a pain Ne0nguy, but even after the latest update I am still affected by the minimized game hidden UI bug.

I deleted the add-on and cleaned the saved variables, reinstalled and still it happens.

*shrug*

Very strange, that last patch should have taken care of it... guess I will have to try other routes of repair...

Hi,
I have not tried this add-on yet but I love the idea of it. I take many screen shots myself and have them setup as my screen saver. My only concern is that every time I take a screen shot myself the game pause for a second or more. That could be very bad in combat. When this mod takes a shot, does the game pause as well? If not then I will be getting it for sure.

Thanks,
Twidget

Yes and No. Your screen may freeze for a split second, however the game does continue. Any spells you are currently casting (or about to cast) will be uninterrupted.
Give it a try, I have found that the most interesting screenshots in my collection are ones taken when in combat.

Interesting idea; gave it a try on levelling alts. But two big problems...

--The game may "continue" when this takes screenshots during combat, but it also taints. Received chat notifaction that taint was happening and in taint.log after exiting, the following:

Code:
2/20 03:31:45.921  An action was blocked in combat because of taint from ScrapBook - UIParent:Hide()
2/20 03:31:45.921      Interface\AddOns\ScrapBook\ScrapBook.lua:66 HideUI()
2/20 03:31:45.921      Interface\AddOns\ScrapBook\ScrapBook.lua:252 Watermark()
2/20 03:31:45.921      Interface\AddOns\ScrapBook\ScrapBook.lua:237 Snapshot()
2/20 03:31:45.921      Interface\AddOns\ScrapBook\ScrapBook.lua:38 TimerSnapshot()
2/20 03:31:45.921      Interface\AddOns\ScrapBook\ScrapBook.lua:29
2/20 03:31:46.421  An action was blocked in combat because of taint from ScrapBook - UIParent:Show()
2/20 03:31:46.421      Interface\AddOns\ScrapBook\ScrapBook.lua:73 ShowUI()
2/20 03:31:46.421      Interface\AddOns\ScrapBook\ScrapBook.lua:20
--This uses an extremely high amount of CPU time when you are not doing anything (and its timer is counting down between screenshots): 3 to 4 CPU/second (tested with OptionHouse, CPU profiling enabled).
