I've already got a purchased copy of this software and although initially I had problems with it, once i'd become familiar with the interface and various commands etc, it became the primary software for recording game play.

If you can get over the initial difficulties by spending a little time using the software, watching toy tube videos etc this is a premium piece of kit.

Thank you to the giveaway team for offering this again. I'm still going to install it even though I 've already purchased it, because I have to have Steam running for me to access the program. :(

A big thumbs up from me.

PlayClaw? PlayNO!

Installed with no problems, thank you Giveawayoftheday.
Confusing UI, closed program thinking I was getting out of options. Most overlays on by default.
Tried it with Cannon Brawl, game freezes, changed settings, game freezes, turn 'Desktop mode' on, computer freezes *so* bad I can't even get to the Task Manager.
Hard reset.
Uninstalled with no problems, thank you Giveawayoftheday.

I get the same.

On paper this looks like a great piece of software with many useful features but it doesn't inspire confidence when it falls short of actually doing anything when the appropriate keys are pressed.

I re-assigned the hotkey F12 to Ctrl+F12.
F12 is assigned to a function in Internet Explorer,

Spent many months designing protection via registration of my software; in Delphi it is very simple to download components regarding the systems hardware. All sorts of data including hard drive serial number can easily be obtained.
Find it hard to believe that anyone would use a piece of hardware that does quite regularly get changed compared with other hardware components which almost never get changed.
Unfortunately, one area where NT fails miserably is that after an hour change something about the file date returned changes. This makes a very useful piece of information unusable in software protection.
Six months of work down the drain because bloody Microsoft can't even do that right!!

I have playcore4 from a previous giveaway and found it really good for recording inputs and outputs at the same time, ie a backing track playing on the pc, a vocal track from the high def mic input and guitar input using a rocksmith usb capture lead.
Only had one significant problem... It did not remain activated and claimed the hardware configuration had changed significantly which it had not... Only the size of the harddrives changed.had changed. It was the same OS, same windows key, same motherboard. It would not reactivate as the GAOTD activation code had long been removed from their licensing server.

I have installed this and note the user interface has changed to a much more compact windows 8.1 multi-coloured tile layout that does not always refresh on its own when you return to it from the individual components windows presenting a grid of red x's that only refresh when i hover over them with the pointer.

I do hope that Playclaw5 retains its activation according to GAOTD terms and condition which Playclaw4 did not.

" It did not remain activated and claimed the hardware configuration had changed significantly which it had not... Only the size of the harddrives changed.had changed."

Hard drives have 2 identifying serial numbers -- one you can see [from a command prompt do a dir command] & change [sysinternals volumeid.exe], and one that comes with the drive itself from the factory. One or both are often used by software as a part of the overall device ID for DRM.

The bright spot is that you lost a GOTD & it's back -- imagine if you lost your license to Photoshop [before it was subscription based], which happened to many people -- yeah, you were supposed to deactivate P/Shop before swapping drives, but when/if a drive failed you couldn't.

Yes mike I know, but people should be allowed to upgrade or replace faulty hard drives without losing activation, windows did not require re-activation and that is well known for including hard drives hidden serial number in its activation algorithm. Hard drive serial number change alone should NEVER be enough to invalidate a license activation. Neither should changes that any gamer might make during the life of their gaming machine, i.e. system RAM size change or audio and video hardware change... all the above are likely to be upgraded or replaced due to over use in any hardcore gaming configuration. Since re-instalation is not possible due to GAOTD wrapper their server should retain the GAOTD activation code to allow re-activation where their over zealous hardware change detection algorithm raises a false positive due to minor hardware repair or upgrade IMHO.

TK, I too "suddenly" lost Play Claw 4's usability. I did not change a thing on my PC. When I tried to use it, I got an error saying the program could not be found, or something to that effect. So, I figured they had an expiration on it that I didn't realize. I just got rid of it then. It was a good little program too. Was going to purchase 5, but bought something else instead.
