Reliably create a system restore point from the command line

QuickSystemRestore is a command line tool with a single purpose: to create a System Restore point.

While that sounds simple enough, the program is actually a little smarter than it first appears. Because if the creation fails for some reason - System Restore has been turned off, say, or it's broken for some reason - then it'll try to repair your system to get everything working again.

And the repairs are surprisingly thorough. So QuickSystemRestore will look for policy settings which might be causing a problem, say, and restart the necessary services. It'll try to repair System Restore, as well as the WMI service, and if a Restore Point still can't be created, will prompt you to reboot your PC.

Please note, in order for this to work, you must run QuickSystemRestore as an administrator. And, annoyingly, if you forget the program won't point this out. Rather, it'll complain that System Restore isn't working, which is rather misleading.

If you set up and run the program correctly, though, this won't be an issue, and QuickSystemRestore will create restore points on command whenever you feel it's necessary.

Verdict:

The program needs to recognise when it doesn't have the necessary permissions to run properly, but otherwise QuickSystemRestore provides an easy way to create Restore Points on demand

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
