as a noob youtube playthrough person i enjoy using this software. Its so CPU and RAM light even though its packed with so much. 10/10 I dare anyone not to like this. Files are saved...
I have to say, that all things considered: Playclaw is an amazing product and was definitely worth every penny. When I bought it originally, it was simpy a game recorded. It has evovled and it can do everything I need it to do without dropping frames. I’m even able...
