Playclaw is free for today (TeamSpeak overlay, FPS overlay, video capture tool)
Re: Playclaw is free for today (TeamSpeak overlay, FPS overlay, video capture tool)
I installed and registered. Just close out the next screen that pops up with wanting to install the giveawayaday stuff on your browser. I liked PlayClaw, I was just never going to pay for it, now I have it for free. Good deal, thanks.
The website, giveawayoftheday, makes me nervous. Can anyone confirm the provided exe is in fact directly from playclaw and does not contain spyware/toolbars/etc?
I installed both the "giveawayoftheday" version of Playclaw as well as the native version downloaded from the Playclaw website in a virtual machine and did a cursory check of network, registry and file system activity to look for anything fishy. Provided you back out of the obvious promoware installation you're presented with at the end, as UnDeaD pointed out already, there doesn't seem to be anything sinister going on (no guarantees, of course :) ).
However, if you want to avoid running the installer from the giveaway site altogether, you could just go with the Playclaw version and use the registration code that's listed in the giveaway readme.txt file (inside the zip archive). Works just fine.
