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!

If you enjoy Multishot this is the way to support it's development. Thanks!

If I disable the option to do Trade-Screenshots the Addon ignores my options and takes screens regardless of the settings. This does only affect Trade screenshots - the other settings are nice.

Request add tradeshot

Found you!
I was stunned when I went to Curse to add you as fave, and didn't find you, but now I'm happy again.

I had a request there, to add shots of trade, and if I remember correctly dlui thought it was a good idea. The name is Multi- after all
I use TradeScreenshot - 2008-08-18, works, so the code I suppose is extremely basic.
It's good to keep the amount of addons down.

Keep up the good work on this great addon.

I guess the question is - do they share a boss ID? Or can they be separated so that multi-shot only snaps after Krick?

As for my own question - do you still need a screenshot created by Multi-shot? I'm working on Loremaster, and can offer you one of those, if you'd like.
We have a winner!
They don't share an ID but Ick is listed as a boss with his own 36477 id in the library used.
The addon is not taking screenshots of the trash, it just takes one when Jaina and Tyranus finish their little RP and kill Ick.

Easiest solution is to include Ick's id (36477) to the blacklist dlui has already put in the addon for such situations.

No, its not connected to any reputation level gains or anything else. Have yet kill the first mob group up the path after the Krick & Ick boss without it taking an unwanted screenshot.

Food for thought

This is a very nice mod. I have used it for some time now. Since I am constantly looking for stuff I found Scrapbook by Ne0nguy. You guys should talk. I would love to see the text from his mod put into your functionality!
