X-Ripper 1.5
Extract hidden images, audio or videos from other files

X-Ripper is a tool for locating and extracting images, audio or videos from other files. It's aimed at helping you extract content from a game library - soundtrack, images, cut scene videos and more - but can also extract JPEGs from a PDF file, find the images from a DLL, and more.

One very notable problem is there's no MP3 support, but otherwise X-Ripper does support a good range of file types, covering audio (WAV, OGG, WMA, MID, VOC, AU, AIF), image (BMP, JPG, PCX, PNG, DDS, GIF, TGA, TIF) and video (AVI, WMV, SMK, BIK). And in theory you can add support for other file types yourself via the program's X-Ripper.ini file, although this does require some knowledge of the file format.

While all this sounds quite complex, X-Ripper itself turns out to be implausibly small - just a single 120KB executable. And it's also very easy to use: select the file to scan, the output folder and file formats to locate, click "Start Searching" and the program will try to detect and remove them for you.

We say "try" because this won't always happen. X-Ripper doesn't understand the format of the file it's scanning, it just scans it as a simple binary stream, and if that happens to be compressed, encrypted or similarly manipulated then the program won't find anything at all.

Some files don't seem to be detected or extracted properly, either; in a few cases X-Ripper claimed to have found some TGA files in our test files, but they didn't seem to be viewable images.

Generally, though, the program worked very well for us. We pointed it at some PDFs and it extracted the JPEGs just fine, and using C:\Windows\System32\Imageres.dll created more than 600 PNGs of various Windows icons and other graphics: very easy.

Verdict:

Results vary - and we really wish there was MP3 support - but when it works X-Ripper is a quick and very easy way to extract images, audio and video content from other files

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
