My Game Long Name - What the heck is this?!
Hello,
Today I decided to uninstall some games I play no more, by entering Control Panel ---> Delete Programs. And what do I see? Next to Antichamber (I never wanted to uninstall this) by Alexander Bruce, there is also Antichamber by Epic Games and something called My Game Long Name, also by Epic Games. What the hell are those? If I uninstall them, will the game stop working?

My Game Long Name is the UDK engine version associated with each Unreal game you have. I have three "My Game Long Name" becasue I have Antichamber, UT3, and UDK itself. It is just used to direct the game to the correct version of UDK, kind of like when games used to require a CD even when the game was fully installed on the computer.

I've never heard of anyone having problems by uninstalling it though. And also, for Steam games, you're not really meant to uninstall them via the add/remove programs control panel. You can just right-click on the game in Steam and click on "Delete Local Content..." That will also make sure any redists and registry entries are removed as well.

There's nothing to fix.

What are you on about? "Clutter"? It takes up a minuscule amount of space, and you will likely never see it for more Han like 5 minutes. BRB going to remove that one tiny spec of chip from the bottom of the bag that fell behind my bookcase. It shouldn't be able to do that. It's absurd, and it's clutter.

Bad choice of name. Stupid choice, especially when you're coming through trying to uninstall adware that your kids installed accidentally. Why not "Unreal Engine Resource" or something?

It's not a choice. It's inbuilt with the engine, most likely nothing the dev can do about it.

Just uninstall and reinstall the game. Right-click it in your Steam library and click on "delete local content" and then reinstall it.

...Or you could verify the game files which is way easier and doesnt require a reinstall.
Herp derp.

That only verifies the actual files within the "..\steamapps\common\antichamber\" directory, and not the separately installed engine that comes when you initially download and install the game, which is what this thread was talking about.

Verifying also clears registry flags, that associated with additional software installed with game.

And you can change name of your project, it's not built-in, it's default.
