Windows 7 Boot Updater
Customise Windows' startup animation with Windows 7 Boot Updater

There are a huge number of ways in which you can customise your copy of Windows, but areas such as the animated boot screen seem practically untouchable. If you are running Windows 7, Windows 7 Boot Updater enables you to customise the animated screen that is displayed when you start up your computer, or when you wake it from sleep or hibernation mode.

At its most basic the application can be used to change the black background colour that is used for the animation, but it is also possible to change the default text that appears on screen. You can change the size, position and background colour of these messages to anything of your choosing.

But the real fun comes when Windows 7 Boot Updater is used to completely customise the startup animation. Rather than requiring you to use complicated animation software, the boot screen is made up of a series of still images that can be created in any image editing application.

Full instructions about how to screen images of the correct size and format are included in the program, and in a few simple steps it is possible to customise your copy of Windows in a unique way. All of the files that are edited during the customisation process are backed up automatically so you can easily revert to the original settings when you want.

Verdict:

This may be beta software, but Windows 7 Boot Updater already looks like a polished piece of software that should grace the hard drive of any serious tweaker.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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
