Yale
Easily monitor your system's CPU, hard drive and network activity

Yale is a small (272KB) portable tool which can monitor and display details on your system's processor, hard drive and network use.

The program lives in your system tray, and a quick right-click, Show is enough to open its panel. Here you'll see your current CPU and hard drive usage, as well as your network transfer rates for all adapters, as well as a graph revealing resource use history for the past few seconds. This display also updates as you watch, of course.

Clicking on one of the network adapters reveals even more information, as the panel expands to show traffic according to its type: TCP, UDP, HTTP, FTP, UPnP, Shared Network Folders and so on. (Although, annoyingly, this won't work unless the program has administrative rights. Right-click the executable, select Properties > Compatibility and check "Run this program as an administrator" to permanently avoid this problem in Windows Vista or 7.)

Yale has a few problems. It's not too configurable, for instance: if you're not interested in CPU or disk activity monitoring, then you can't turn those graphs off. And, even more basic, if your network adapter names are lengthy then they'll be displayed over the first network transfer speed figure, making it very difficult to read.

Still, if you'd like a network monitor which breaks traffic down by protocols then it could be handy. And, of course, as it's portable there's nothing to install, no penalty for trying it out.

Version: 1.16 · New: Minor improvements

Verdict:

It's short on configuration options, but otherwise Yale is a straightforward network monitor, particularly interesting if you'd like to see your traffic broken down into its various protocols

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

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."
