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!

This is beautifully written -- I especially liked the way you handled registering and unregistering the CLEU, that was a very clever method of enhancing the mod's efficiency -- and a fantastic replacement for the aged and not quite so functional now Memento Mori. Good job!

Fantastic screenshot mod. Low resource usage and works without errors currently on the things it takes screenshots for (I really like its achievement screenshot capability).

One thing that may make it even more efficient & less of a hassle to keep updated, though. It currently uses mob IDs to judge what bosses to take screenshots for. Every time a new boss is added, you have to update the database.

For less updating hassle and/or more efficiency, perhaps instead do it as MementoMori does. Instead of relying on a mob ID list, just detect the "worldboss" UnitClassification for a mob.

Well, did some more research & worldboss is only returned for sure on raid bosses. Not 5-man bosses; those are either elite or (for a handful of various rare spawns) rareelite. Cannot, of course, use elite for 5-man boss detection as you would have hundreds of screens after every dungeon run .

So yes, looks like a mob database is needed for 5-man instances. It isn't needed for raid bosses, though, unless they change the classification of the WotLK ones.

Thank you for this mod!
I tried several screenshot mods and this one has won the challenge.

Just 1 request: can you add the option to take a screenshot when an hunter pet levels?

Keep up the great work!

The ever-talkative and overly-chatty dlui has apparently made this happen...already. Check the addon download page for the update.

I love this mod, it does everything I need but one. A previous mod I had gave the option to print the /played time with a level screenshot. I may try to look at that one and see if I can get it in there - but thought it might be a useful option. Thanks for a great mod!

Edit: Nevermind, I lucked out and managed to add the function without having a clue to what I was doing. Thanks anyway!

Is there a setup or something? GUI, slash command, anything.

I want to choose which 'event' the addon will take auto-screenshot. For example, I don't like the Hunter-Pet Level mode And others I am not aware of yet.

Thanks!!

I third the options. And I'd like to suggest some more events to take screenshots:
  • When you kill a rare (even low level ones!)
  • When you die on a boss fight
  • When you engage a boss (funny for those times you accidentally aggro some world boss; could also just be world bosses)

I bet there's more that people would like. Are there any plans to add options and/or more events?

Checking by to see if there are new updates.
I love this addon, it made tons of adorable screenshots for me!

Major gains in reputation would be great to screenshot too.
For example: the "You are now exalted with .." sentence is usually something you worked hard enough for to have a big proud moment, one to screenshot!

How do you turn off the bosskil shots? It's annoying to freeze up whenever I kill one, has crashed me twice now and I need to turn it off when raiding.
