Multishot (Screenshot)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.1.4
by: dlui, Dridzt, emelio


Multishot is a tiny addon that automatically takes screenshots of memorable events in your World of Warcraft career. It's a photo diary of everything you come across in Azeroth, Outland and Northend.

Features & screenshot possibilities
  • level-ups and guild level-ups
  • achievements and guild achievements
  • challenge mode medals
  • battleground and arena victories
  • reputation changes
  • trade window transactions
  • garisson building completion
  • any rare/rare-elite mob kills
  • timeline; take a screenshot every x minutes (configurable)
  • keybind; take a custom screenshot on demand
And most of all: boss killshots in dungeons and raids. Inbuilt database contains most if not all bosses ingame. Pew pew!

How to use
Just play as usual and Multishot will be waiting. By the way: you can take screenshots any time you like by pressing the PRINT key. Captures will most likely be located in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Screenshots.

Configuration
via Interface > Addons > Multishot or type /multishot into the chat window.

Updates
You will have to update Multishot every once in a while. Blizzard constantly adds, removes or updates mobs. Multishot would not be aware of these changes otherwise.

Troubleshooting
Multishot might not work as expected after new content patch has been released: every now and then "false positives" will sneak into the database. Those can easily be spotted in debug mode. Please drop me a line so that I can blacklist them as soon as possible.

Localization
Multishot works on all locales and supports localization. Please submit a translated copy of the "/Locales/Locale-enUS.lua" file if your language is not included yet. Thanks!

Development
Check out the official Multishot Thread on WoW Interface for bug reports and feature requests. You are likely to get a faster reply if you include a dancing banana in your post.

Thanks
Anyone who has contributed to Multishot: I really appreciate your help! Thanks for improving Multishot by adding new features to the source code, reporting & fixing bugs, and so on. Keep it up!

As far as I can tell. It is in my addons list, and screenshots are all over there.
Thank you for the heads up!!

To the developers, PLEASE keep this updated, there is only one other addon like this, and it does achievements, I think it's fun to have these kinds of addons! We really appreciate it!!

In other words, whatever parts of UI you see on screenshots, you should report to that addon's author as a serious break of UI design guidelines.

Curiously, though, when using "Alt-Z" to hide the interface, it hides everything completely. I figured that's what this addon would utilize?

MultiShot does not work the same way as Alt-z as that operation is implicitly protected.
It would produce taint related errors in a number of situations so it is off-limits to addons.
I will see what I can do about the minimap though.

A head-up, since you mentioned it.
/console taintLog 2 rapidly crashes WoW. It have issues with memory allocation for Lua interpreter, obviously. It may manifest without taintLog enabled, but takes a long time to do so.

Well if deleting the WTF 'fixed' it that makes me suspect a console variable that you had changed from Blizzard defaults.

Did you by any chance have taint logging enabled prior to your deleting wtf? (/console taintLog 1)

There's all kinds of weird and hard to debug breakage happening to addons when taint logging is enabled in the current wow build (16057 for future reference if it's fixed) because Blizz has broken that diagnostic system.

One of the new feature additions in 3.0.7 is ability to bind a key to "Custom Screenshot" under the usual game key-bindings.

This will take a screenshot with current Multishot options on demand.

I should say that I'm still waiting for my MoP copy (ordered a physical box) so... I haven't actually tested it since 25th (but it was working fine on MoP beta and before the 25th... it's spooky )

Edit:
Do you have and error-catching addon (like Swatter or BugSack/BugGrabber) or "Show Lua errors" ticked under the default game options? (Help section)
Maybe there is an actual error that prevents the watermark from hiding but you're not seeing it?
