Orange - Mapshots 1.0
Hudell





Introduction
This plugin will export the map to image files.
The images will be created on a Mapshots folder on the same folder where the Game.exe is (When playtesting, that's inside the rpg maker/nwjs-win folder).
Only works while playtesting and on windows and mac deployed games.

How to Use
This is a very simple plugin. Just activate it on your plugin manager, set the keyCode param to the code of the key you want to use as a trigger (Default is printscreen - code 44), run the game and press the key when you want to take a mapshot.


The plugin will create PNG images by default, but you can also configure it to create JPG images. If you use JPG, you can also change the quality level of the images. The larger the quality you use, the larger the image files will be. PNG images are generated only at 100%

Just tried loading the sample "World 2" Map (100x100), it's PNG is 5.23MB.

A 256x256 map may go up to about 25 MB if PNG is used.

I may be wrong but can't you do that by right clicking the map while in the editor?

Sorry If I'm missing something here...

Yes, but that option will give you a small image, while my plugin will make an image using the real size of the map.

When you playtest, the Mapshots folder is created inside the nwjs-win folder that is inside the RPG Maker folder. It is created there because that's where your Game.exe file is.

Does this only take a snapshot of the map you are currently on? 

Any chance to have an option to screencap every map in the project file?

I hadn't thought of this, but yeah, that can be done.

Did you get any message on the console window?
It might be that windows is blocking the game from creating new files there. Can you check the folder permissions?

Hm... Can you try deploying your game and checking if it saves properly through the deployed game?


Also check if my Screenshot Saver plugin works for you

Use the "Deployment" option on the File menu.
