NetTraffic 1.27.4
Easily monitor your network traffic

NetTraffic is a bandwidth monitor which will help you to keep track of exactly how your internet connection is being used.

This starts very simply, with the program displaying an animated icon in your system tray which flashes as information is uploaded or downloaded. Hover your mouse cursor over this and a tooltip displays the current upload and download speeds. (Initially this is for all network traffic, although you can ask it to monitor specific interfaces from the program's settings dialog.)

If you need more, right-click the system tray icon, click Show and a small graph will appear which charts network activity over time. This will stay on top of other windows, conveniently, and can also be resized if you'd like more detail.

Right-click the chart or system tray icon, select Statistics, and you'll be presented with tables listing the total and average network traffic for the last hour, day, month and year. And it'll even try to predict your future bandwidth needs for the same periods of time (this didn't look too accurate in our tests, but the figures should presumably become more reliable as NetTraffic has longer to sample your typical network use).

There's also an option to zoom in on a particular period of time in your network history, and display charts of your network use. So if someone boosted your figures with a massive late-night downloading session, say, you'll find it recorded here.

And the program even tracks and displays the distance travelled by your mouse cursor over the same period. We're not entirely sure why... But it's here, if you need it.

The only minor issue we could find with NetTraffic is its resource use, which was a little higher than we'd like (20-40MB).

This isn't enough to make the slightest difference to most people, though, and so if you need to track your network bandwidth then you should give NetTraffic a try: it's easy to use, provides plenty of information, and offers a host of configuration options and settings to ensure it's working just as you'd like.

Recent changes include:

1.27.3    Updated Japanese translation.
1.27.2    Added Turkish translation.
1.27.1    Updated German translation.
1.27       Customisable maximum of scale (automatic / fixed) and data units (amount of data, data rate).

Verdict:

NetTraffic is an excellent bandwidth monitor, easy to use, configurable, and with plenty of charts and reports

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
