Firstly, this is not for shareware or cracked stuff, only freeware.
ok the aim of this thread is to post software that is useful, but free.
example... Mozilla Firefox, free and above all being far better than Internet Explorer such as virus protection, ease of use and even customization.
also with that regard there is Oprah, another free and superior web browser.
well, starting off ill give a list of programs that i use.
- Media player, plays all audio formats, all video formats and is resource friendly and has a neat toolbar function (docks to the
bottom of the window above the task bar). i personally use it because it has some simply, yet effective effects, for instance it fades out and in when
music is stopped and started, just makes it seem more smooth.
also has a shoutcast ability. for free host your own radio.
Freeware audio manipulator. great for editing audio files, simple and easy to use, but POWERFUL.
Powerful freeware image editor. Basically photoshop, but free. Handy tool for anyone.
Very powerful terrain generator and renderer. create stunning landscapes with this very easy to use program. you are able to create custom surface
maps to suite any terrain.
Very useful terrain heightmap generator. uses an easy to use tab system to create many different heightmaps for use in various programs such as
One that i thought i might as well add. convert any image into a .ico file that can be used to replace standard windows icons or those of
applications. can extract icons from .exe, .dll etc
to replace icons on your desktop (My computer, My documents and recycle bin) right click on the desktop, go into properties, select the Desktop Tab,
click on the "Customize Desktop" button at the bottom and select the ico to replace and "Change Icon".
for file types, open any folder, on the top menu find tools then folder options, File types tab, find the extention you want and then click the
"Advanced" button. click the change icon button and browse.
Very useful archive tool. easy to use and supports all archive types known to man. (RAR, ZIP, 7ZIP, TAR.GZ, ZOO you name it) very useful indeed.
Useful Hardware tool. Gives information on your hardware including CPU information (Speed BUS Cache) Motherboard (BIOS, Vendor, Model etc) and RAM
clocks and speeds.
Handy tool that records internet usage information. great for calculating averages, totals and predictions of bandwith. great for checking to see if
you are heading over your limits or not, or to see if something is using up your connection.
well thats it for me, i have some more, but i will post them later. its late and i cant think straight.
please, post anything you consider useful, handy, or simply interesting as i am looking forward to seeing what other interesting programs are hiding
on the web
