DiffView
Display recent changes to your files and Registry

DiffView is a very small portable tool which can scan your system to detect and display recent changes to your system files or Registry.

File and Registry trees make it easy to choose exactly what you'd like to check: your User folders, say, or the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System keys.

And you can choose how recent any changes should be, too. Enter "5" in the "Diff time" box, say, and the program will only look for items which have been created or modified in the last 5 minutes.

With the configuration done, all you have to do is click "Scan files" or "Scan reg", depending what you're doing, and wait for the results. This can take a while if you're scanning the entire Registry - so you might want to tag an extra 5 minutes onto your "Diff time" figure to make up for that - but be patient, it will finish eventually.

And once the process is complete, DiffView displays a tree view report of your system, instantly highlighting any recent changes in the areas you've specified.

Verdict:

DiffView can be a useful tool for highlighting what's been happening recently on your PC, but it's not always reliable - we found it repeatedly crashed on one test PC.

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."
