Uniblue DriverScanner 2014
Keep your drivers up-to-date

Device drivers are without doubt some of the most important programs running on your PC. If any of them have bugs then this can lead to all kinds of problems: poor performance, unexpected crashes, spontaneous reboots, lengthy shutdowns, and a whole lot more. It pays to keep your drivers up-to-date, then, and Uniblue DriverScanner 2014 can help you do this quickly and with the minimum of fuss.

To give your PC this valuable health check, just launch the program and click Start Scan. Uniblue DriverScanner 2014 will compile a list of your installed drivers and their version number, compare these with its own database of the latest versions, and let you know which drivers have updates available.

That's just the start, though. If the program has found updates then it'll download them all at a click (and in parallel, for the best performance). You'll be warned about drivers that may be risky to install, perhaps causing system instability. But if everything looks good then you can install each update in turn with another click.

Of course driver updates can sometimes cause problems, too - you might download a version that introduces a new bug, for instance. But Uniblue have thought of that, too. DriverScanner 2014 creates a restore point every time it installs a new driver, and so if you do experience any issues then they're easily fixed: just click the Manage tab, choose the appropriate Restore tab and your system will be returned to its previous state. Mark that driver as one to ignore and the program won't try to download it again, which means you'll be safe until a new, and hopefully fixed version appears.

Build 4.0.12.2 changes include:

- Quickhelp can now be reached through the product
- Bug fix related to restore point creation

Verdict:

Uniblue DriverScanner makes it exceptionally easy to locate and install driver updates, and there's no technical knowledge required

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
