Batchrun 4.3
Build up a batch file quickly using Batchrun

Batch files enable you to automate repetitive tasks quickly and easily, but these require coding by hand using Notepad or another text editor, and things can quickly become confusing for less experienced users or those who keep needing to look up command-line references as they go.

Batchrun eliminates the need for typing commands in by hand thanks to its more user-friendly approach. Install and launch the program, and you can quickly build a set of batch commands using the supplied drop-down menus and file selection boxes.

The process is relatively simple: launch the program and select the type of command (Run, copy, rename, make folder, delete, delete folder, end process, kill process or copy text to the clipboard). Select the file or enter file-based variables to perform this task on, input parameters, set a priority level and – if applicable – choose a working directory. You can also opt to delay the task or run the selected program minimised, maximised or using its normal window if applicable. Once done, click Add to add subsequent commands. Commands can be dragged and dropped to sort them in a different order if necessary, and individual commands can be tagged with a “Wait to kill” option that pauses the batch file until the program launched is closed by the end user.

It’s also possible to launch dial-up connections using a combination of the Run command and the rasphone.exe file – full instructions can be found inside the program’s help files.

Batch files can be saved to the desktop for easy access, to the startup folder so they launch with Windows or executed directly from the program. A portable version is also available.

Version 4.3 adds support for using environment variables (e.g. %programfiles%) in batch files, and improves the program's general support for 64-bit systems.
 

Verdict:

A competent little tool that offers a more user-friendly alternative to creating and editing batch files.

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
