HelpNDoc 5.1.0.217
A surprisingly powerful Help authoring tool

HelpNDoc is a versatile application for building help files in CHM, HTML, DOC and PDF formats.

It includes a comprehensive WYSIWYG editor with support for hyperlinks, advanced paragraph formatting, embedded images in many formats (JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, ICO, EMF, WMF), tables and more, while a spell checker traps errors as they're entered.

HelpNDoc makes it particularly easy to manage Help topics, attach keywords to them, organise them into categories and more. And it will look after low-level Help details like Topic ID and Context number generation, so you can get on with generating great content.

If you are also developing the project you're documenting, though, check out HelpNDoc's own documentation for useful advice on integrating the Help generation process with Visual Studio, opening an HTML Help file from a Java program, and more.

Please note, the Personal Edition of HelpNDoc cannot be used for commercial purposes, and adds a banner to the bottom of each page it generates. However, there's also a Standard version that removes the first restriction, and a Professional version that removes them both - follow the Buy link to find out more.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use authoring tool that takes much of the hassle out of creating HTML Help files

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."

4.15.1 brings:
