Does anyone (I always doubt if I should write "do you", or "does anyone") know an easy/simple way to track how many times a file (a future Construct game) gets downloaded?

Most hosting accounts can give you detailed statistics about hits and visits for pages and files. If you don't have access to that, though, you can probably use a little PHP/ASP redirect page that increments a counter then forwards to the file. That can cause problems for submitting your file to other sites, though, which sometimes require a direct link to the file.
