Jovial Menu
A tiny portable launcher for programs and documents

Jovial Menu is a lightweight portable launcher for programs and documents.

The program is surprisingly compact - under 100KB download - and unzips to a single executable, ready to be launched from a USB stick.

Jovial Menu adds an icon to your system tray, and clicking this displays a default menu. It's just a regular Windows menu, no extra visual touches, just a link to Notepad, and a few nested menus for applications and web links.

All this is powered by a JovialMenu.ini file. An "Edit..." option opens this in Notepad, where comments in the file explain how to set it up. Not that you'll need them for the most part, as they're fairly self-explanatory:


- New Floating Mode, allowing menu to be launched at the position where the associated entry file is clicked. Good if the entry file's file extension is associated with JovialMenu.exe

- Allow user-added icons. By placing icon files in a "user-icons" folder.

- A system menu entry to edit the currently opened entry file is added at the end. (Program has to be restarted to refresh the updated content)


Jovial Menu is as simple as launchers get, but it works well, is amazingly small (sub-100KB), and so easy to use you'll be setting it up in seconds.

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."
