DNS Jumper
Change your DNS settings in a couple of clicks

DNS Jumper is a portable tool which makes it easy for your PC to use an alternative Domain Name Service.

Why would you bother? If you don't know, then you probably shouldn't be using DNS Jumper, but there are all kinds of possible reasons. It could help you reach websites where access has otherwise been blocked, for instance. It might improve your security by blocking known malicious sites. Or, if you move to a faster Domain Name Service then it'll help to speed your browsing, just a little.

Changing your settings manually can take a little work, but DNS Jumper makes it much easier. Just choose a network card and the Domain Name Service you'd like to use from the list (Open, Comodo and many others are available), click "Apply DNS" and you're probably done (although clicking "Flush DNS" will probably be wise, just to make sure that your changes take immediate effect).

Or, if you're not sure which service to use, you could try clicking "Fastest DNS". The program will then test each service in turn, measuring its response time, before presenting you with the results.

Version 2.0 brings:
1. [ Fixed ] – Dns Jumper cannot ping some DNS servers (instead of ping Resolve method used)
2. [ Fixed ] – Dns jumper’s Buttons are very small and some minor GUI changes
3. [ Fixed ] – Sometimes Update function doesn’t work (improved)
4. [ Added ] – Tray menu
5. [ Added ] – Turbo resolve feture , it will reduce the total fastest Dns test time drastically
6. [ Added ] – Start DNS jumper on system startup , Apply parameters at system startup … features
7. [ Added ] – Parameter support to Run fastest Dns test at startup and apply it Automatically
8. [ Added ] – Dns list Export – Import features

Verdict:

DNS Jumper provides an easy way to reconfigure your PC to use an alternative Domain Name Service. Be careful, though - if misused the program could break your internet connection and you'll need to manually tweak Windows to restore normal working order.

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
