Wow, I just said that if it is not free then I'm not doing it and you pretty much ignored me on that one.
An "upgrade" in my case would be a new computer altogether.
Meanwhile, I managed to snag Growler Guncam and have no recording problems.
Gonna have to play around with the settings.
EDIT: I had some problems getting MW3 to run properly, but it turns out there is some weird bug having to do with having your computer on for a long time (I would often put it in sleep/hibernate as opposed to actually shutting it off, just for convenience's sake). This causes jump jets and zoom and other controls to stutter, along with the rest of the game. So I restarted my computer. Runs like a charm. Before I tried this, I even went as far as updating graphics drivers. So I still have no problems even with the latest Catalyst drivers. The only problem I do have is one I had with an old laptop with WinXP (that doesn't work anymore), which has to do with some of the functions that can be toggled, such as the torso twist - freelook toggle. Occasionally it gets stuck in freelook and I have to hold the control down just to be able to twist my torso (which is a bother unless piloting the Nova, I forget what its IS name is). So basically it looks and plays just like it has looked and played for me all the time, save the weird toggle bug.
