SynWrite
A compact but powerful source code editor and notepad replacement

SynWrite is a free but powerful programmer's editor which comes packed with features and functionality.

A tree structure view for your source makes it easy to locate the code you need, for instance. And with autocompletion, syntax highlighting and code folding you could find SynWrite is more comfortable to use than your regular IDE.

The program doesn't just have to be used for working on source code, though. Features like spell checking, a clipboard history, macros, and an extremely versatile Find and Replace dialog (including support for regular expressions) make SynWrite a capable text editor for many applications.

If there's a problem here it's that SynWrite crams in so many advanced capabilities that it's all too easy to miss most of them. The program supports three types of drag and drop to help reorganise your document, for instance, but that's far from obvious; be sure to browse the menus and documentation to help you fully understand how everything works.

Version 6.38.2725 (see full changelog for more):


+ menuitem "Options - Integrate with Explorer" to show info about plugin
+ autocomplete list closes by tab-key

Verdict:

An excellent text editor with a stack of advanced features

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."
