Advanced System Tweaker
Optimise and maintain your PC with this extensible tweaking tool

Advanced System Tweaker is a Windows tweaking tool with a couple of unusual extras.

At first glance the program doesn't look too impressive. It only comes with 37 Windows tweaks, for instance, covering the usual areas: memory optimisations, interface tweaks, networking improvements, Explorer speedups and so on.

And an inflexible interface means they're not too well presented. Most tweak descriptions are too long to view in their pane, for instance. You can't resize this or maximise the window, either, so have to scroll horizontally to read them.

But there are good points, too. Choose an option like "Memory Tweaks", say, and the program will explain that it can speed up your PC by telling Windows to keep more items in memory. Sounds good, but if you're an expert Windows user you'll still want more information.

And you can get it, too, just by clicking the Detailed Information bar, which (amongst other data) shows you exactly which Registry settings the tweak will apply. It's the same for every tweak here: the program is completely transparent about what it's doing.

But that's not all. Advanced System Tweaker also supports "Add Ons", which means you can extend its abilities by downloading more tweaks online (well, eventually, there's only one available as we write), or creating new ones of your own. So in just a few minutes you can extend the program with many of your own favourite Windows tweaks, which could make it far more useful.

Build 2.0.0 is a major new release with these changes:

- Major program change. In the previous versions you could only run 1 tweak at a time. Now you can select the tweaks you want first and then apply them all at once.
- Multiple code changes and some minor bug fixes.
- Added frame containers and lines to the add on creator for tweaks.

Verdict:

Advanced System Tweaker includes only a few Windows tweaks right now, and its interface isn't the best. The ability to customise it with your own tweaks could be very useful, though, so if you're an expert Windows user then the program may be worth checking out.

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
