WindowBlinds 8.1
Change, customise and theme just about every aspect of your user-interface

If you’re one of the many people who like to customise your desktop, you’ll feel somewhat naked when you sit in front of vanilla version of Windows, when you first purchase or use a PC at work. To be fair, Windows 7 offers a fair better visual experience than previous editions. As long as your graphics card is capable of powering the Aero theme, this is a good enough option for most users.

However, you can go much further with the Windows operating system. Just about every element of the desktop can be configured, other than the usual components such as the wallpaper, fonts and size of your icons. The only problem is that advanced tweaking of your interface is not encourage by Microsoft, apart from official themes you can download from the Microsoft website.

WindowBlinds goes much further than downloading a theme. It puts you in full control over your own customisation. On a basic level, you can just download a theme and install. There are hundreds of pre-designed themes which might suit your requirements. Alternatively, download a theme and customise this to your requirements. You can also create a theme from scratch if you know what you are doing.

WindowBlinds 8.1 contains these changes/fixes:

- Fix for WindowBlinds not properly applying skins to Thunderbird 31
- Fix for a Firefox title bar issue
- Added better support for high DPI displays
- Directory Opus and Skype 7 fixes

Verdict:

Powerful desktop and theme customisation tool that will enable you to alter and update just about every aspect of your user-interface

Great Program -but Win 7/8 ONLY...

Posted by: Michael Winbush, 20 June 2013 03:52

Just a couple of points - WindowBlinds 8 doesn't work on the older OS like XP or Vista (you'll have to find a copy of WindowBlinds 7 for that...) Also, the price for the software is now only $9.99 (or $6.99 if you've previously registered a version of the program...)

Hi Michael, yes we changed the system requirements to reflect the move to 7/8 only. We didn't change the price though - updated!

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
