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 a very late response, but I'd like to add it anyway. According to Brajana at NoStockUI, you can turn off boss kill screenshots by editing the Multishot.lua file in Notepad. Erase or comment out (put a double hyphen before it) the following line (line 522):

self:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD")

does it take the ss at the right time or as the achievement fades in?

Ulduar

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:

Go to the Interface/AddOns/Multishot folder, and open Multishot.lua in Notepad. Add the following lines in the mobDB section. Near the end is fine, just make sure you enter your lines in before the }.

Code:
	[33993] = 1, 	 -- Vault of Archavon: Emalon the Storm Watcher
	[33113] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Flame Leviathan
	[33118] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Ignis the Furnace Master
	[33186] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Razorscale
	[33293] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: XT-002 Deconstructor
	[32857] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Stormcaller Brundir
	[32867] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Steelbreaker
	[32927] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Runemaster Molgeim
	[32930] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Kologarn
	[33515] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Auriaya
	[33412] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Mimiron
	[32845] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Hodir
	[32865] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Thorim
	[32906] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Freya
	[32914] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Elder Stonebark
	[32913] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Elder Ironbranch
	[32915] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Elder Brightleaf
	[33271] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: General Vezax
	[33288] = 1, 	 -- Ulduar: Yogg-Saron
The NPC ID for Yogg-Saron may be wrong, I haven't been able to test it. I don't yet have the NPC ID for Algalon, so if you kill him, you'll have to take a screenshot the old fashioned way.

I don't know what the "right" time is to you, but as soon as you get the achievement, it fires. Downside: if you get an achievement when you kill a boss you'll get two screenshots.

FEATURE SUGGESTION: Option to only take boss screenshots in raid instances.

Other than that this addon is freakin' perfect.

I dont mind the 2 screenshots at bossfights. I really love browsing through my screenshots. It stockpiled up a lot, but the memories it brings!

So... Thank you for updating this mod!

Finally i dont have to manually time my screenshots anymore.

I've tried some of such addons (I'm a screenshot junkie, lol), but a lot of other addons don't allow it or mess up afterwards.
But it would be nice.
Although I do not mind the UI. It helps me remember the members of the party I was in (bossfight), and additional info like the quick statistics of bossmods when the screenshot is taken, and such. And I really like the "You have earned the title: <insert title>" in my screenshots of achievements.

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.

Often with addons that take pictures when you get an achievement , the picture is taken before the achievement is completely visible.
Does this addon add a small delay here ?

Hit escape, select interface settings, addons-tab and select this addon and there you can set some delay.

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

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.
