I've been using Raptr for years. I love it for tracking my game activity. I don't need all this extra crap, and I especially don't need a program that's recording everything I do on my computer. I uninstalled it when it first showed up... then I get a new update today and it's re-installed again. If this doesn't go away I'm going to have to just completely uninstall Raptr.
Any chance we can get a lightweight app JUST for tracking gameplay and nothing else?
Thanks for the feedback!
Due to the age of this particular forum post though, I'll be locking the topic to avoid further necro'ing.
I believe the intended effect that after uninstalling Plays.tv it should remember that, and if Raptr updates then it will not include it. However, because Raptr was uninstalled and reinstalled it won't have the knowledge to remember that Plays.tv is not wanted. I will still bring up the request to have an option for whether installation is wanted or not.
there is still no notification in the Raptr installer that the Play.TV client is also going to be installed as a separate program.
the Plays.TV client should be a clearly shown, optional choice in the Raptr installer and, if installed, should be defaulted to "not active"
i have a 256GB SSD drive for my boot/OS and everyday programs and a @TB mechanical for data storage, games, etc. this type of setup is getting to be more and more common. having your smaller SSD drive filled up with recordings because of a program you were not aware of was installed and activated is a VERY BAD THING.
@Colon - That's odd since it should not be reinstalling automatically itself if you've uninstalled once already. Do you uninstall Raptr at the same time as it, or did you only uninstall Raptr in that last instance you mentioned? You mentioned it reinstalled 10 times or so. Does it do that on an AMD driver update? Upon boot-up? Any details would be good so we can attempt to make changes.
@theBlackDragon - I appreciate the update and letting me know!
For your points you mentioned, we're slowly making improvements to make it more user friendly, but we definitely want to squash some bugs first. I apologize that you didn't have a great experience when it first rolled out, but thank you for the feedback!
@obscurespace - Everyone is welcome to their opinion here and I am not going to censor anyone if they have negative feedback. Any type of feedback, whether negative or positive, can help shape anything. However, it's easier to determine the changes if we have constructive feedback such as:
Hmmm me thinks that the seperation of Plays and Raptr was a bad Idea. Maybe you should have your "sowftware Devs" undo the crap update.
And you know that while I may be a thorn in your side verun. I am 100% correct in the statement that I have made.
@Hunterkillerer - Can you let me know when it last reinstalled? I want to ensure that it's not happening with 1.9.1 (there was a bug on 1.9.0 that a small amount of users may have gotten the reinstall when they should not have).
Plays.tv has installed itself THREE times without my permission. I'm uninstalling Raptr, it's not worth the hassle.
We realized this issue soon after updating it on Friday. We should have made the correction now so it shouldn't happen. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Raptr is Adware.
