System Files Lister
Find out which files are covered by Windows File Protection

Windows File Protection (WFP) is an important technology which monitors system files, and if they're accidentally deleted or replaced, can restore the correct versions. And if you've ever used the System File Checker, perhaps by running SFC /SCANNOW at a command line, then SFC.EXE has utilised WFP to do its work.

If you're using SFC.EXE to try and fix a particular file or application, though, you might occasionally wonder if this is actually covered by WFP at all. Windows won't tell you this, unfortunately, but the System File Lister can.

The program is a tiny (40KB) download, and very simple to use. Just unzip it, launch the program, and it displays all the files on your system which are covered by Windows File Protection. (Getting the full list can take a little while, so you may have to wait for a few seconds at it updates.)

There will be a lot of files here (our test system had almost 15,000), so browsing the list is something of a challenge. You can sort the files by path, though, which may make it easier to find the ones you need, and you can also run a text search for files including particular keywords.

System Files Lister isn't exactly sophisticated, and there are a few extra touches we'd like (the ability to open an Explorer folder at a given path would be convenient, for instance) - but it can still be a useful troubleshooting tool in some situations.

Verdict:

It's extremely basic, but if you ever need to know what Windows File Protection is protecting on your PC then System File Lister will get the job done

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
