My Daily Wallpaper
Automatically download new desktop wallpaper every time you log on

My Daily Wallpaper is a compact, portable tool which can change your wallpaper automatically, or on demand.

The program accesses its images from DeviantART.com, which means there's plenty of choice (more than 132,000 wallpapers as we write). You won't like them all, of course, but My Daily Wallpaper can be restricted to your favourite image categories: Landscapes, Minimalistic, Animals and Plants, Fractals and so on.

If you like complete control over what's happening then you can use My Daily Wallpaper as a simple browser. Open the program's main window, click the "Download next group of random wallpapers" button, and it'll download and display four sample images from your preferred categories. If you like one, click its "Set as wallpaper" button; if you don't, click "Download" again and check the next four.

Or, if you're happy to let My Daily Wallpaper decide, check the "Autostart with Windows and download a new wallpaper" box. Then, every time you log on, the program will launch, grab a new image and automatically set it as your desktop background. (Although if you don't like the image then you can always download another by choosing the appropriate option from My Daily Wallpaper's system tray icon.)

And that's essentially it, although the program does have a few useful settings on offer, too. Click "Configuration" and you can define your minimum wallpaper resolution, set up proxy options and decide whether you'd like to keep copies of your downloaded images, amongst other items.

Version 7.00:
    - new feature: add a local images directory. Now you can use your personal pics as random wallpapers!
    - fixed rare bug: cannot use a wallpaper in case the path does not contains two slashes
    - fixed some rare crash
    - fixed the error reporting engine
    - various code fix and bug fix

Verdict:

A simple but likeable and easy-to-use wallpaper changer

Version 6.43 has changed

Posted by: John Smith, 21 August 2013 21:25

I downloaded and installed version 6.43 and noticed the following differences from the product review:

1. There is an installer that runs when launched that prompts for the installation of the "Full" free version.

2. To register for this full free version you will need to either install one of the 3rd party toolbars bundled with the software or donate.

3. It does allow you the option to "skip" (even though the SKIP button is grayed out, you can still click it) the install of the 3rd party toolbar and change of your browser homepage.

4. This version has tons more categories than seen in the screen shot and the UI is a little different.

I'm assuming that the original review was for an older version of the product. I just wanted everyone to be aware of the changes in the latest version 6.43.

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
