Directory Opus
Handle your files and folders more productively using this Explorer replacement tool

If you work with lots of files, then you’ll soon find that the Windows Explorer can be rather frustrating. For example, you have to open multiple windows to handle a source and destination location for your files, Explorer doesn’t always remember your previous location, so you have to dig deep to find the destination and you can’t worked with tabbed windows, making multiple destinations difficult.

Directory Opus is much different. At a basic level it will replace Explorer. This enables you to quickly and easily open a new Opus window from, say, double-clicking on the desktop in any location, or right-clicking the mouse menu to open a window. You can have single-pane Opus windows, a dual-pane and, of course multiple windows.

The key to Opus is the flexibility of the user-interface. You can customise it as much or as little as you require. Add quick links to your favourite folders, your drives and other destinations. Use Opus to handle your create, open and extract archives. It also enables you to work with FTP sites as if they were local to your computer. Even copy from one server to another.

Once you’ve started using Directory Opus, you won’t want to go back to Windows Explorer. Yes, Opus has a high-learning curve. It’s difficult to figure it out for the first couple of weeks. However, keep configuring and you’ll soon have it exactly how you require.

The Directory Opus changelog is here.

Verdict:

One of the best Windows Explorer replacement tools available

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
