Windows Inspection Tool Set 3.0.25
Track exactly what's happening on your PC with this interesting monitoring suite

The Windows Inspection Tool Set provides a suite of tools which make it easy to view and monitor exactly what's happening on your PC.

You can look at running processes, for instance, or check the status of your Windows services. The program can show you your system's network interfaces, and any connections which might currently be open. And there are modules to display details on your drives, network shares, logged-on users, Windows events, running drivers and more.

While this all sounds good - and the interface is initially appealing, too - the details are sometimes a little disappointing. The "Processes" viewer has maybe 1% of the power of Process Hacker or Process Explorer, for instance: even Task Manager provides more information.

Still, browse a little further and you'll find one or two more useful modules. Take the Windows Event Log, for instance. There's none of the hassles you get with the standard Windows Event Viewer, no trees to navigate or logs to select: just launch the module and it'll display all your events, sorted into date order, with the most recent at the top. These then refresh automatically, so if you're trying to diagnose a current problem then you'll see events pop up almost as soon as they appear. And if you want to, say, just view "Warning" messages, then you can apply a simple text filter in a second or two.

And the program also provides its own Event Monitor, which can report on what's happening to various aspects of your system: system resources, process launches, driver loads and unloads, network connections, Windows services and more.

Choose the System Resources category, for instance, and the Event Monitor will immediately show you which processes are using the most threads, and have a high number of handles open. With a click this window can stay on top of your other applications, and then it'll update as you use your PC, so you can continue to run other programs as normal and be alerted when significant events occur.

Verdict:

Some of the tools on offer here are very weak, providing less data than you get with Windows. Others are far more useful, though, fortunately, and the Event Viewer and Event Monitor probably justify installing the Windows Inspection Tool Set all on their own.

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
