Windows 7 SP1 install disc
Get an updated Windows 7 installation disc with SP1 included.

If you purchased a retail copy of Windows 7, chances are your installation disc didn’t come with SP1 included. That means if you want to reinstall Windows 7 at a later date you’ll have to reinstall from the disc, then download all of those updates again, a time-consuming and frustrating process.

There’s another problem too: should you ever want to perform a repair installation of Windows 7 by choosing the “Upgrade” version, typically to fix a major system problem, then you’ll have to uninstall SP1 first from your computer before doing so – more time wasted and hair lost.

The answer lies in getting hold of a copy of the Windows 7 installation disc with the Service Pack 1 updates already included. You can do this manually using a tool called RT Seven Lite, but yet again it’s time-consuming, fiddly and – you guessed it – potentially frustrating.

Alternatively, you can download a legitimate image of the Windows 7 disc with the SP1 files already included. All you have to do is download the ISO file here, then burn it to disc by double-clicking the file and popping in a blank DVD when prompted. Once done, boot from the disc to verify it works and label the disc accordingly. You’ll need the product key that came with your computer to activate Windows 7 after reinstalling from scratch.

Note that this won’t work if you have a version of Windows that came preinstalled with your computer. Also make sure you download the correct version of Windows 7 for your needs – to find out which edition (Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate) and type (32-bit or 64-bit) you need, click Start, right-click Computer and select Properties.

This downloadable file is for Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit users.

Verdict:

If you’re a Windows 7 user looking to reinstall in the near future, save yourself a bucketful of time and get this now.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
