About ScreenPlus

ScreenPlus is the most powerful WoW addOn to take screen captures!

ScreenPlus allows you to take advanced screen captures. With a simple click you can show only the desired elements of the main WoW IU and display any desired additional information. This can include the location, the player's name and guild, date and time. The parameters are fully customizable.

You can easily modify the file format and JPEG quality from 1 (low quality, light file size) to 10 (best quality, heavy file size).

ScreenPlus increases the maximum camera distance from 15 to 25 yards (WoW hardcoded limit).

With a single "snapshot" key, ScreenPlus performs the following sequence:
    - hides or fade user-defined UI parts (main UI, NPC names, combat text,...)
    - displays a caption with shooting informations
    - takes a screen capture
    - shows again the previously hidden UI parts

If some of your settings are lost, for example target circle is no longer visible, just click on the "Default" button in the settings UI.

Getting started
Just display the standard shortcuts panel and bind a key for screenshot, there is no hidden features ;-)
To display settings UI, type /screenplus ui
To reset settings to defaults, type /screenplus reset

See included ReadMe file for more infos.

    I would like more control over the watermark text size, style, formatting, and position.  Great mod, TY.

  • #32

    Thank you for the update on this addon, works great once again, but there is a bug with the file format options. It will save images a PNG file as a JPEG. TGA works fine though.

  • #31

    This addons has stopped taking screenshots. Currently it only changes the naem settings in game and throws a arror message. An update or fix for this would be apprciated.

    ScreenPlus have wrong interface version number.

    Interface version of ScreenPlus is 50000.

    It's wrong. Modify, please.


  • #29

    Not compatible with 5.0.5
    Still shows as "Out of date"

  • #27
    This AddOn Seems Great And I Can Take The Screen Shots, But The Folder That It Saves Them To I Can Not Find. I Don't Know What To Do Or How To Fix It. Is There Any Way I Can Set It To Save Them In A Folder Of My Choosing, If Not How Do I Go About Being Able To Find My Saved Screen Shots??
  • #28
    when you take the screen shot it should make a sound effect and say in gray text "Snapshot taken by ScreenPlus (saved in your "World of Warcraft/Screenshots" folder)"

    so, goto your world of warcraft folder, find the screenshots folder and there should be your screenshots :)

    if you have more trouble than that, you'll need to do a search for "WoWScrnShot" or read up for a fuller understanding of folders and game installation.

    Does this still work with 4.0?
  • #26
    i only use this for the camera zoom maximum increase and it works perfectly for that.
  • #24
    Zax, thank you for this addon! I have tried multiple screenshot addons, and this is the best one.

    I would like to make a few suggestions to further improve the addon, if you're still planning on adding features. 1) Capture server time instead of local time. 2) Ability to change horizontal position of caption, eg. I would love to display it in the lower right corner. 3) Ability to change the "screenshot taken" audio file.
  • #23
    3.01 is patch 3.3 compatible. Sorry for the delay.
  • #21
    When will this be updated for patch 3.3? I'm getting an error message when I try taking screenshots. :(

    For me too, get only black tgas!
  • #18
    Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I can't get this to work. I had it before one of the bigger patches came out then I lost all my addons and had to transfer over to curse. Now every time I try and use it, it doesn't exist on my wow, everything says its working fine on my computer but wow doesn't pick it up. Any clues?
