UltraVNC (64-bit)
Access and use your PC from almost anywhere

You spent hours slaving into the night on that vital report for work. But what happens if you forget to take it in the next day? Not much, really (apart from getting fired, perhaps), because short of going home again there's no way to access the data on your home PC.

Give UltraVNC a try, though, and it could be a very different story. If you install the UltraVNC Server on your home PC, then leave it on and connected to the web, you'll be able to access the system from anywhere. So you could effectively log on to your home PC from work, then see your desktop, view documents, check your emails, and run programs as though you were sitting in front of the system.

The program also allows embedded file transfer, which means you could locate that missing report (or any other document you need), then send it across to your current location in just a few clicks. Built-in compression will help keep transfer times to the minimum.

UltraVNC is the perfect way to provide access to your PC from anywhere, then, but it has other applications, too. If you've a friend who's always getting into PC problems, for instance, then the program can help you access and control their system. You'll be able to browse their settings, make Control Panel tweaks, and hopefully fix their PC without having to go round and do it in person.

And businesses can take this even further by using UltraVNC for remote support, letting them connect to customers to help set up and optimise their systems.

There are many competing services that do similar things, of course, but UltraVNC has a lot to recommend it. It works on just about any version of Windows, can automatically configure itself for easy connections, and best of all, is really, really fast. A special video driver ensures the view of your remote PC is updated very quickly, almost in real time, with none of the annoying drag and delay you see with many remote control alternatives.

Verdict:

Web-based services like LogMeIn can be easier to use, but if you need a really powerful, configurable and fast remote control tool then we'd try UltraVNC first

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."

    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
