File Verifier++ 0.6.3
Quickly verify the integrity of any set of files

File Verifier++ is a useful Windows application that can help you confirm that a set of files haven't been changed. Which may sound a little odd, but actually it has several worthwhile applications.

Do you regularly back up files to CD or DVD, for instance? These may become corrupt over time, but usually there's no way to tell this. File Verifier++ can generate digital fingerprints called hashes for each file, though, and then save these on the discs as well. They may then be used at any time to verify that the backups are still good.

Or maybe you're concerned about malware? Create hashes for your Windows or Program Files folders, say, and that will help you spot any files that have been modified later.

And you might similarly use the program as an advanced troubleshooting aid. If you keep suffering PC problems every time you install a particular program, for instance, then hashes will let you know which system files it might have changed.

An Explorer shell extension makes the program easy to use, as you can generate hashes from the right-click menu for files and folders.

But there's also plenty of power available for experts, including support for more than 20 hashing algorithms, a command line version of the tool, and powerful search options that allow regular expressions.

Verdict:

File Verifier++ makes it easy to verify the integrity of your backups, and it has several other interesting applications. A worthwhile addition to your technical toolbox

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
