Windows Post-Install Wizard
Windows Post-Install Wizard

What does reinstalling Windows mean to you? Hopefully it starts with creating a backup – or at least ensuring that your latest backup is recent enough – and in all likelihood you then jump straight to installing the operating system before panicking and trying to locate all of the installation discs for the additional software you need to set up on your system. But even when you have done this you are not done.

Very few people use Windows ’as is’, instead preferring to customize the operating system with e a few tweaks, changing themes, editing the registry, and generally ensuring that they have stamped their mark on their copy of Windows. This is something that few people mind doing once or twice, but if you are the sort of person who wants to – or has to – reinstall Windows frequently, Windows Post-Install Wizard can help you to automate the process.

This great utility makes it possible to create an all-in-one system recovery disc that can be used to not only install Windows but then automatically install all of the software you need and applying the tweaks you like to use to customize and personalize your system. It’s worth spending some time getting your settings perfectly configured as it will save you a great deal of time and effort in the future.

Just because you have created a system recovery disc that includes certain apps and settings, you are not committed to using them in the same way every time you make use of the disc. When the installation of Windows has finished, Windows Post-Install Wizard will kick in. left unattended, the apps and settings you have configured will be installed and configured, but you also have the option of jumping in and disabling any you have changed you mind about – this is a helpful option for sys admin who can create a master installer but not commit themselves to using the same configuration on each machine.

Verdict:

An amazing time amazing tool that deserve a place in the software collection of every power user.

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
