EventLogSourcesView 1.00 (32-bit)
What's using your event logs? NirSoft's tool explains all

If a Windows application is misbehaving then browsing your event logs can sometimes tell you more, as they'll display all kinds of error and status messages that aren't visible any other way.

Does your application actually use the event logs to record anything, though? Most programs don't bother to tell you, and Windows won't either - but that's where the tiny EventLogSourcesView comes in.

Launch this portable program and it'll display a complete list of all the event log sources (all the components which are logging events) on your system: the source name, event type ("Application", "System" and so on), "Registry Modified" (the date when the component was added to your PC), relevant file names, and more.

By default this includes a lot of Windows components, but if you click the "Registry Modified" column header to sort by installation date, then scroll to the bottom of the report, it'll become easier to understand. You'll see all recently added event log sources, and if your problem application is on the list, then you'll know that it's at least capable of adding information to your logs.

Verdict:

It's one of NirSoft's more technical tools, but EventLogSourcesView is still useful as a quick way of understanding which of your applications might make use of the event logs

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
