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!

Ok I gave it some thought I think I know what's happening.

It probably has to do with multi-boss encounters.

As an example the Faction Champions in ToCR.
When one of those "bosses" dies the addon based on its guid will assume that it's time to take a screenshot.
Now if "you" are alive and the fight continues it will not.
Instead it will wait for combat end (even if that happens 5min down the road)
which will coincide with the actual "boss kill": All Champions cleared.

If on the other hand you are dead, it will take the screenshot there and then while fight is far from over.

I'm guessing this happens in all multi-boss encounters and is the root of the confusion.

Only "simple" way around it I can see is to make the combat status check party/raid wide by checking
party1-4, raidx-y through UnitAffectingCombat("unit") before taking the shot.
It might still photograph a wipe but there's more chances it will be a relevant screenshot.
Other way would be rather more involved and I'm not sure addon would benefit
from complicating things so much.
(have special code for detecting multi-boss encounter completion: Faction Champions, Iron Council, 4 Horsemen etc..)

Hang in guys , let's track that one down:

Multishot will take a screenshot whenever a boss mob is killed. If - in that very moment - you are...
  • ... alive: the screenshot will be taken on leaving combat (exactly like Dridzt said). "The boss is down but you're still infight finishing his adds off."

  • ... dead: the screenshot is taken instantly (delay applies). "Even if your party members are still infight killing adds."

Edit: On rare occasions trash mobs would be identified as bosses (and there for a screenshot was taken). Thats what bubblebop might have been talking about. I've uploaded a fix.

I don't get any reported errors with Multishot, but I'm having an issue with it. It seems that every time I die during a boss fight, Multishot takes a screenshot. It's becoming very annoying, because I have tons of screenshots of every one of my deaths and I have to go back through and delete them all.

Otherwise, the addon works fine and takes screenshots when it is supposed to (acheivements, boss deaths, etc.). I would love to see this fixed in the future, thanks!
Without having looked at the code I'm guessing that it might be taking a screenshot when the player exits combat (PLAYER_REGEN_ENABLED).
Unfortunately dying fires that event as well.
If that's the case an extra check that UnitIsDeadOrGhost("player") is not true would fix it.

Re: Ulduar

Originally posted by droeber
I updated the code for the Ulduar bosses and sent a PM to the author, but if anyone wants to modify their copy now, here's what you do:
This isn't needed. Multishot uses the LibBossIDs-1.0 library to recognize bosses, which is kept up to date through patches.

Just download the latest version of LibBossIDs-1.0 ("r22" as of Jul 27/09) and install it like a regular UI mod to your \Addons folder. Now Multishot (and other mods using that library) will recognize Ulduar (and upcoming patch 3.2) bosses without issue.

Or if you are more skilled at handling mods, you can just replace the LibBossIDs-1.0.lua file in the \Multishot\LibBossIDs\ folder with the latest one from the links provided above.

Would it be possible to apply the delay to boss kills too?
I've played with it, but it still insta-snaps the picture on boss kill, and using BossEncounter 2 normally I have the first 3-4 giant letters of COMPLETE and lens flare blocking the screen.

It would be really nice to have this option in configuration menu.

I noticed your latest changelog mentioned the removal of hunter pet level up screenshots, and to me those aren't very important anyway - but I'm curious if this cures the screenshotting everytime my hunter enters a vehicle (ie. Wintergrasp)?

If not, that's my only complaint - things lag for a moment (while screenshot is processed) when hopping into a vehicle, and at times it's a little annoying during heated PvP or Flame Leviathan.
