PowerISO 6.3
Work with almost any disc image format

Download large applications and they'll often come in the form of disc images, typically ISO files. To use these normally you'll have to burn them to CD or DVD first, then access the disc as usual. It's time-consuming, inconvenient, and costs you money if you're not using a rewriteable a disc, but there are alternatives. And PowerISO is one of the best.

At its simplest you can use the program to mount the disk image as a virtual drive. It'll appear in Explorer just like any other drive, you'll be able to browse the image, launch setup programs, without the need to burn it to a physical CD.

PowerISO makes it just as easy to access virtual disk images for VMware (VMDK), Virtual PC (VHD) and VirtualBox (VDI) - simply open them, and browse their contents, edit individual documents, drag and drop files to or from the image and generally treat it just like any other drive.

But the program really comes into its own when you start creating your own images. Are you tired of software that won't run unless its disc is in your drive, for instance? Create an image, mount it to a virtual drive and put the real disc safely away: easy.

You can also create disc images with your own choice of files, make images bootable, password-protect or encrypt them, even compress them to save drive space, or reduce download time, if you're putting them online.

And perhaps best of all, PowerISO works with a huge range of image formats: ISO, DAA, BIN/ CUE, MDF/ MDS, IMG, NRG, CIF and others, more than 30 in total. Whatever images you come across, the program should be able to help.

See the PowerISO changelog for update details.

Verdict:

A powerful tool that makes it very easy to view, create and edit disc image files

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

    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
