Multishot (Screenshot)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.1.1
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
  • 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!

Is there any chance you could add a random timer screenshot? Something to take a screenshot every 30 minutes or so?

The addon called AutoScreenShot (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...creenshot.html) use to do it. There is a minor issue with the use of code that isn't used anymore (this.something). Sadly I don't know enough about xml to make the needed changes.

I love Multishot and use it. I also loved the above mod as well but am unable to fix it. It seems like it would be a good fit as an option in Multishot though and could be simple to add given the previous work that has been done already.

In firstkill mode Multishot only takes a screenshot if it's the first time for your character to kill this mob. If you kill it again you won't get a screenshot.

This is to prevent countless screenshots of daily heroics and so on.

hi, can somebody please tell me what first kill mode is?
is it first kill altogether, of all kills in the entire game? or is it first kill of each mob type?
there is no explanation of it.

I enabled the debugging. I have another issue may be a conflict with another addon. When i open trade it auto cancels the trade and closes the trade window.

I deleted my bosskills and did Anub again this week and it took the screenshot!

This is quite possibly one of my FAVORITE add-ons for the game.

I -LOVE- the screenshot ability when I ding.

Please tell me you guys are going to continue to develop this for 4.0.1 / Cataclysm.

That would only fire for LFD groups, I guess even guild or parties formed in /trade would use the LFD tool for easy transportation to the instance nowadays but in any case it's not guaranteed to fire.

It also doesn't solve the problem for similar bosses in a raid setting (example Valithria in icc or any of the keepers in ulduar etc)

Only viable option is to maintain a list of boss yells similar to how guids are kept and detect the 'kill' same way the bossmods do it for those exceptions only.

Might try to whip something up along those lines in the coming days.
(main problem is these are localized... which is a pita)

For Mal'ganis the 'bosskill' yell is:

for enGB|US, something different in other locales.

Heh. Make an exception for that instance only by having the mod look for LFG_COMPLETION_REWARD firing in it?

Not ideal as it won't fire when doing, say, an all-guild run. But who does those for CoS these days anyway?

Well Zidomo, obviously you didn't kill him, did you?

But seriously, I don't know how this exception could be handled. Make a suggestion on how to fix that and I will add it to Multishot.

Another boss mob r44f does not take screenshots for here: Mal'Ganis in CoS. Using with LibBossIDs-1.0 r44 (embedded).

Its an atypical kill event; the boss doesn't actually die to complete the kill: "When Mal'Ganis reaches 1% health, he escapes, thereby breaking combat and disappearing after he's done with his brief speech."

Just found this addon a few weeks ago and i love it. However during ToC-10 first run using the addon it happened to not take a screenshot for the Anub'arak kill but it got the screenshot for all the other kills. :[ Not sure if it's because i ran the nerub instance with this character few days before? and they have the same names? :[

killing blow (player)

Is there any way I can make this take a screenshot each time I get a killing blow on a player? I've been unable to find anything that can do that, and I already use mutlishot for other screenshot needs. Thanks.

Well probably not - but you can do it yourself:

Just add the following line to function Multishot:OnEnable() in the file Multishot.lua:

Code:
self:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_DEAD", "PLAYER_LEVEL_UP")

Screenshot on Deaths?

Any chance you could add an option to have it take a screen shot when the player dies?

Thanks,
