Solid Renamer 1.2.0.5
Batch rename thousands of files in a single operation

Solid Renamer is a powerful tool which can help you rename an entire folder of files in a single operation.

The process starts by thinking about the rules you're going to apply. There are five options. "Trim" removes text from a given position in the current file name; "Insert Text" adds it; "Enumerate" allows you to add numbers to your files; "Replace" will replace your defined text (regular expressions are supported) with something else, and "Change Case" can change the case of each name in various ways.

Each of these options is more configurable than you might expect. If you're adding numbers to a file name, for instance, you can define the starting number, how many leading zeros you need, the character position (in the file name) where you'd like the number to appear, and whether that position is starting from the beginning, or the end of the file name.

What's more, you can then combine as many of these rules as you like, perhaps creating something that will trim the beginning of your names, add a number to the end, insert some other text somewhere in the middle and convert everything to lower case (or whatever).

If you think this can get complicated, then you're right. And that's a potential problem, because renaming thousands of files incorrectly really isn't something you want to do.

Fortunately the authors understand this, though. So once you've dragged and dropped your chosen folder onto the File List, clicking "Preview" will show you precisely what effect your rules will have on each file name. Once you've scrolled down and made sure everything is fine, clicking Rename then carries out the operation for real (and in just a few seconds).

You still have to be careful, of course. You're not forced to use the Preview function, and if you accidentally rename some critical executable files then you could run into serious trouble. But as long as you're cautious, Solid Renamer should prove a capable tool which can easily handle all your batch file renaming needs.

Verdict:

A versatile batch file renamer with lots of advanced features

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
