NetConnectChoose 1.06
Easily set your default internet connection

When you have multiple internet connections available on the same PC then it's not always clear which one Windows will choose. But if you'd prefer one connection to be used above the rest, then NetConnectChoose will help you set this as the default (and it'll give you lots of other useful connection-related details, too).

This is all very straightforward to use. There's no installation, just run NetConnectChoose to view your current network setup. Select your preferred connection, click File > Set as Default, and you're done - Windows should now choose that connection whenever you want to go online.

If life is a little more complicated, and you need to change the connection occasionally, click Options > Put Icon on Tray and close the main NetConnectChoose window. Right-clicking the program's system tray displays an option to switch the default connection, or you can open the main program window to take more precise control.

While this can be very useful in some situations, many people will never have to switch connection priorities at all. But even then NetConnectChoose can have some value, because of the details it provides about each connection.

Browse the table and you'll find your network adaptor's MAC address, for instance. The length of time the connection has been running. Its current send and receive data speeds; the number of bytes and packets sent and received; your IP address, default gateway, name servers and DHCP server; your MTU setting, interface speed and more.

•Version 1.06 ◦Fixed to work again on Windows 2000.
•Version 1.05 ◦Added 2 new columns that displays the maximum sent speed and maximum received speed.

Verdict:

If you ever need to reset your default internet connection then NetConnectChoose makes it easy. And even if you don't, the sheer volume of connection stats mean it's still a useful portable troubleshooting tool

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
