Anything I can do?

These are the first few lines from the errorlog.txt in ToA

game caused an Access Violation in module GameCamDLL.DLL at 001b:5204b4a2.
Exception handler called in rndr.

that gets repeated for ages then

This goes on for ages and this seems to list all the things running in the background.....

Any suggestions?

Use Fraps?

It might be a flippant answer but it will probably be faster and easier to switch product than diagnose the problem.

The only problem is that fraps uses up HUGE amounts of Hard drive space and the compression on the fly of Gamecam is really useful - especially the "record the last 90 seconds of action" feature.

Is the error Gamecam's fault or ToA's fault? Or is there a memory error?

PS Came back here as it crashed again to desktop - latest error log:
game caused an Access Violation in module GameCamDLL.DLL at 001b:5204b4a2.
Exception handler called in rndr.

Read from location 000249fc caused an access violation.

Hmmm the "Read from location 000249fc caused an access violation." is the same as last time. I might run some memtest's overnight to see if my RAM on the PC hasn't shafted up.

Memory tests came back clean, after 12 hours of testing.

Looks like I'm going to have to go down the re-install everything route :/
