Best File Uploader?
« on: September 20, 2012, 04:00:07 PM »

Hey everyone! I'm ready to release the beta version of my mod but I am ashamed to admit I have never used a file uploader before.  :-[ Any tips on which is the best/easiest?

mediafire.com

Pretty good, although you have to sign up.  Even with that, it's reliable and quick.

When ever I want to share something I just drop it into my dropbox public folder, and share a url to it.

I'm sure dropbox will eventually complain at me using their service as if it's a web host..... but until then, it's dead easy and really quick.

Thanks I signed up with mediafire. Now the question is how do I uploaded an entire directory in order to keep the files in the proper configuration so Starfarer will recognize it as a mod? Should I zip it maybe?

zip it, 7zip it, whatever.  Just make it a compressed file of some sort.
