DriveLetterView
Use DriveLetterView to more easily manage drive letter assignment in Windows.

Many computers now have two or more hard drives installed, and in addition to this, removable drive, media card readers and CD/DVD drives can means that when you open up Explorer there are a large number of drive letters listed. DriveLetterView is a free tool that enables you to take control of these devices and better manage drive letter that have been assigned to them.

In the case of memory card readers, it is common to find that even empty media slots are listed in Explorer and have been assigned a drive letter. When the time comes to copy files to a drive, it can be difficult to determine which is the one that you should be using. Using DriveLetterView you can opt to hide drives that are not being used and easily change drive letters to suite your needs.

Run in standard mode, the program can used to simply view a list of all of the drive letters that Windows has assigned to different drives. But opt to run the program as an administrator – just right click the program and select the Run As Administrator option – you can set about the task of changing drive letters and hide unwanted drives.

The program interface makes it easy to make the necessary adjustments, but power users can take advantage of command line parameters to create batch files to automate certain tasks. In reality, DriveLetterView does little that cannot already be achieved in Windows, but it makes the entire process so much easier. The option to create an HTML list of your drives also proves useful.

Version 1.40:
    - Added new columns: 'Bus Type', 'Product String', 'Product Revision', 'Vendor String', 'Serial Number'. Be aware that these fields are only displayed for drives that provide this information.

Verdict:

A simple free tool that is a great supplement to Windows’ own drive management tools, and much easier to use.

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
