Auslogics BoostSpeed 8.0.1.0
Clean, optimise, tune and tweak your PC

Auslogics BoostSpeed is a comprehensive suite of tools that will improve performance in just about every area of your PCs operations.

If your system is slow to boot, for instance, then use the Startup Manager to locate and disable unnecessary Windows startup programs, Explorer extensions and even IE add-ons for a comprehensive list. And BoostSpeed can highlight "dangerous" items, programs it believes may be spyware, for an additional security benefit.

Nothing slows down a PC quite as much as a poorly optimised hard drive, but BoostSpeed 7 makes it easy to get your system back into shape. There are tools to remove junk and leftover files, clear your web, Windows and application histories, and explore your drive to see which folders are consuming the most space. Then the excellent Auslogics Disk Defrag will rearrange your files to deliver the best possible performance.

Of course there are also tools to clean up and then defragment the Registry. As well as a module to speed up your internet connection; you can tweak these settings manually, if you know what you're doing, or let BoostSpeed handle the tricky decisions.

And you get plenty of useful bonus functions that aren't strictly performance-related at all, but they're generally worth having so we're not about to complain. These include modules to undelete files, discover and fix hard drive problems, view system information, securely shred data, or wipe entire hard drives to make sure any personal data they contained has gone forever.

But if browsing all these modules sounds too much like hard work, don't worry, Auslogics have thought of that, too. Launch a System Scan and BoostSpeed 7 will automatically and quickly identify Registry problems, leftover hard drive junk, file fragmentation and more. Then you can have the program fix all these issues in just one click.

BoostSpeed also has other key features, in particular to its Live Speedup module. A Disk Priority Manager optimises applications in real time, your hard drive is monitored to prevent file fragmentation, while disk and Registry cleanups can now be run automatically.

Elsewhere, a Desktop Protection tool prevents system library errors and reduces system crashes. Privacy improvements include a tool to help detect visits to sites containing adult content. And a host of smaller tweaks enhance the program's effectiveness, fix bugs, improve configurability, and generally ensure it does an even better job of boosting your PCs performance.

What's new in v8?

- System Advisor is back to monitor your PC and suggest up to 56 tweaks for best performance
- Over 100 improvements in every module and component
- 7 skins to customize program interface
​- Powerful boot-time defrag to bring fragmentation to zero % and more.

Verdict:

Auslogics BoostSpeed is a comprehensive suite of optimisation tools which is easy for PC novices to use, but also gives Windows experts the manual control they need.

Big disappointment, crippleware.

As of this moment, the download link does not work and the developer - Auslogics - has pulled it from their site. However, I was able to download it earlier and give it a go.
PROS
- Nice interface. Looks a LOT like Baidu PC Faster.
- Seems to runs very quickly and locate tons of issues

CONS
- This "trial" version will only remove a few "junk" files. You need to pay for it to do anything else
- This version does not allow you to see the details of the hundreds of problems supposedly on your system unless you pay for it
- It caused my Windows 8.1 64 bit machine to crash twice. I got the BSOD only when the program was running. Once I uninstalled it, the system was fine.

Perhaps the developer is fixing a major bug in the software, but unless I can test it fully I cannot recommend it.

Yes, it has been pulled....for a week! Without notice. And we've written news about the release.

Serves as an advertisement for the paid for version.

Unlike the previous version, Auslogics BoostSpeed 6 doesn't provide a great tool to improve your PC performance unless you buy the full version. The new interface definitely has a "Soluto" like interface and will appeal to the novice user, but it doesn't really TELL you what's wrong with your system. Plus the "trial" only indicates that you have a number of "problems" with no details of what they are. You can't fix the problems until you upgrade to a licensed version of the program and I suspect that it's not actually fixing anything important. I've run it on a system where I've already scanned the system with CCleaner, WiseCare 365, Glary Utilities and the paid-for version of Ashampoo's WinOptimizer 10. The trial indicated I literally had several HUNDRED of issues and prompted me to fix these problems by buying the full version of BoostSpeed 6.

I'm afraid it's not going to be on my recommended list any longer...

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
