Search torrents from the Windows desktop

TorrentRover is a torrent search tool for the Windows desktop.

Getting started is easy. Download the file, unzip it (no installation or adware here) and run TorrentRoverPortable. Type something in the Quick Search box, the program passes your query to a few torrent search engines (PirateBay.se, Kickass.so, BitSnoop.com, isoHunt.to), collects any matches, and sorts them in order of quality. Double-click anything that appeals to open it in your default torrent client (TorrentRover is purely about search, it won't download anything itself).

Any search you run is automatically saved, with a matching button displayed at the top of the TorrentRover window. At its simplest, this means you can use it again with a click, no retyping required.

What's more interesting is that you can edit these searches. There are options to refine them (search only a particular category of file, or your favourite search engines), to schedule them to run at a particular time, even to automatically download the preferred file.

A "Plugins" menu can run the same search on YouTube, Amazon, eBay, Wikipedia, IMDB, last.fm, MetaCritic, Walmart and (if all else fails) Google.

In theory you can configure all this via the Preferences dialog, but that's the only feature which didn't work for us. Whenever we tried to access it, the program closed down.

Version 1.1.14 brings (Version History):

- Fixed default values for Season and Episode for Advanced Search when added through Share Rover
- Fixed EEEEEE format for Advanced Search
- Improved performance with type-to-search Rovers
- Updated Subscription Recovery options to include PayPal
- Fixed Regex error causing errors

Verdict:

Although it's been around for a while, TorrentRover is still classed as a beta, and in some ways that shows (not being able to access the Preferences is a fairly major problem). The core of the program worked just fine, though, so on balance it's one thumb up from us.

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."
