Hi, I'm kind of new here. Does anyone know of any easy hosting websites so people can download my game? I tried to submit my game but my website doesn't host it very well. And when I do get another place to host, do I re-submit my game? Also, is there any program to take screenshots of your game? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Screenshots can be taken by pressing PrtSc, then Edit/Paste in any graphics program.
For hosting, many people have used Sitesled in the past, but its reliability has gone downhill recently. I've had an account with Angelfire for years, though I don't really use it any more, and it seems fine to me. You're not really supposed to use it exclusively as a file host, but I've never had any problems.
There's nothing in the pending queue at the moment, so I think you'll have to re-submit.
Sitesled has raised very high after it's huge dip, I highly recommend trying there before you consider anywhere else. The main catch is, you need a website, they consider themselfs a website host, not web storage, even though if you have a website, you can use the rest for storage and they don't mind. http://www.sitesled.com/
It's sites like this that look to good to be true, because they are. Do you're research before looking into a site that looks to good to be true. To be honest, it took me a few days before I trusted Sitesled. They state though that nothing is shared and no promotional shit will be sent, so yes. I still recommend Sitesled.
There was a big stretch of 2+ weeks where SiteSled was down almost every day and it SUCKED ASS. BrandonC's right though, as aside from that awful stretch they've been much improved lately. I think as long as you register hits on your website they don't mind if other places direct link to your games. (I think!)

Oh my god, they share my information, I'm gonna shit my pants now. Do you think I acutally enter real stuff into the form. And they don't ask you for a credit card number since you don't pay them. And it didn't really seem to good to be true, just sitesled deleted my account a few times.
In addition to that, Sitesled does not just delete accounts for no reason. They often delete them because you don't have a website, or your website has been under construction, or your website is merely a little shit website just to say you have one. Sitesled considers themselves a website host, not internet storage. However Sitesled will let you use their space as storage, granted you have a half decent website. That is the ONLY catch, and I would rather that, then to have my information thrown around like a game of hot potato.
