If a downloadable game is an .exe file, just click the link, and choose open. The game will usually be installed among your other programs (otherwise you can choose where you would like to install it during the installation process).

If the game is a .zip or .rar file, choose save, and save it to your pc.

    Hi there - this past week, I've noticed problems with actually getting onto Gamershood forums. The landing page is as follows:

    Database error
    The database has encountered a problem.
    Please try the following:
    Load the page again by clicking the Refresh button in your web browser.
    Open the home page, then try to open another page.
    Click the Back button to try another link.
    The forum technical staff have been notified of the error, though you may contact them if the problem persists.

    We apologise for any inconvenience."

    I have never known this before and wondered if you knew about it. Thanks.

    Hi clover,

    Yes, we have noticed this too and are waiting for things to get fixed.
    From what I understand there are some problems with the server CPU and GamersHood is working on it with his host.
    We also are hoping that things will get resolved real soon.
    From now on, this is how it is going to be, just her and me
