LCDTester 1.0
Quickly check your new LCD monitor for dead pixels

LCDTester is a tiny tool which can help you check an LCD display for stuck or dead pixels.

To use the program, just launch it, click Begin, and the screen will turn entirely white. If you have a "problem" pixel then it may stand out as being a different colour or brightness to its immediate neighbours.

It's hard to tell immediately, though, so LCDTester will cycle the screen through several solid colours every time you click the mouse: white, black, red, green, blue, and back to white again. By quickly moving from one colour to the next it's much easier to spot a defective pixel.

And when you've finished inspecting the monitor, just press the Esc key to return to the regular Windows display and carry on as before.

It's all very simple and straightforward, and as an added convenience, LCDTester is also portable. If you're going to visit someone, hoping to buy a second-hand display, then take LCDTester along on a USB key and you'll be able to run it from there, no installation required, just to check it's all working properly before you buy.

Verdict:

LCDTester uses a very simple technique, but it can be surprisingly effective in helping you spot dead display pixels.

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

    - 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
