HTML Game Downloads

Hello!

I noticed that if you upload a zipped HTML game to be embedded in the game page, there doesn't seem to be an easy way for players to download that zip outside of the itch app. This isn't a huge issue, but it can be a bit confusing if you've uploaded multiple files (e.g. the web build and a source file) and users are given a download option which doesn't include the actual game. Would it be possible to add a checkbox to the HTML zip for "show this file in downloads"?

I think this is a reasonable thing to add. I didn't add it originally since I figured most people would want to packager their HTML file into a runtime to make it easier to launch.

BTW, in the meantime you can upload the file twice, and mark the other one as for download.
