Cameyo attempts to create a portable version of any application

Portable applications – those can be run directly from a folder or external drive (typically a USB thumb drive) – are increasingly popular as people realise just how useful they are. They enable you to not only take your favourite programs with you, but all your carefully crafted settings and preferences too.

Problem is, portable apps are still the exception rather than the norm. Cameyo aims to make it relatively simple to take any program and transform it into a single executable file, which can be run from any drive on any computer with all of your settings kept intact.

It’s simple: in theory. Run the program and click the Capture Installation button. Wait while Cameyo scans your computer, install the program in question, then click “Done” and wait while Cameyo sees what’s changed. These changes make up your portable application, and include any other running processes and open windows, so make sure all your programs are closed before running it.

After the process is complete, open the folder on your desktop and double-click your portable application to test it. It’s not guaranteed to work, and you may run into trouble depending on what else is running on your PC when using the program. A package editor is provided, enabling you to view what Registry keys and files have been captured and make limited changes, such as removing irrelevant files from being monitored.

Version 2.7.1291

- Added dynamic path "%Temp%"
 

Verdict:

A lot of effort is required to get the most out of this program, with no guarantee of success at the end, but Cameyo is an intriguing application that will hopefully benefit from further development.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
