Yup, this and doom 2 both renamed rag doll kung fu....

what you guys think about this? apparentely the games "renamed" still have their original folder with their files, but if you click "install", steam will download the rag doll kung fu demo...never see a thing like this and on this scale...i have at least 5-6 games with this problem

Just as confused as everyone else, but here's some stuff I just found out from my side.

Ok, so I've had a look at the Properties dialog for 'Rag Doll Kung Fu', and here's what it says:


According to the Properties dialog it has 55 MB usage on my disk, although I apparently have another update (automatically queued) which reads at 25.2 MB.

On the homepage (http://www.ragdollkungfu.com/), it reads, Rag Doll Kung Fu is the first wholly independently developed game to be distributed through Steam.

Another thing that caught my eye was a passage from the About page (http://www.ragdollkungfu.com/about.html):

Rag Doll Kung Fu is the brainchild of Games industry veteran artist, Mark Healey. Working in his spare time, with a little help from his mates, Mark first created a low-budget Kung Fu movie in his local park. Little did he know where that day would lead him...

Fast forward three years of hard work and sleepless nights, and he had an almost-complete game on his hands! Everything changed when he was invited to show Rag Doll Kung Fu to an astounded audience at the Annual 'Game Developer Conference', or GDC 2005 (see 'Files' section to watch the video of that fateful day!).

Valve Software had its trusty spies in the audience, and after a whirlwind trip down to Valve HQ, a few more sleepless nights, Mark had landed himself a deal to unlesh his baby on the world, thanks to the wonders of Steam. And the rest, as they say, is history!


Have a look on it yourself if you like. The site seems non-malicious as far as viruses are concerned, but don't take my word on it! (For those bothered by this sort of thing, it came up clean on Norton Safe Web (https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ragdollkungfu.com%2F)).

I have no idea what's going on though, whether this is genuine or not and why on earth it's been tagged onto Quake and several other games as reported by others!

EDIT What I will say though is that I personally don't think this is genuine, I would delete all content for this game (just in case you don't know, right-click the game in your library, click Properties, click the Local Files tab, click Delete Local Game Content..., and then click Delete).

EDIT #2 Hmm, maybe it is a genuine error.. http://store.steampowered.com/app/1002/. Apparently a game of this title was, as said on the webpage, the first indie game (and the first non-Valve game) to be released on Steam in 2005?!

Haha, thanks Gamer4life, but I was just having a quick look around to get info posted quick on this, in case it was malicious. It's still there in the library, and its Community Hub link still links to Quake's Community Hub, but as you can see in edit #2, Rag Doll Kung Fu is actually an official game released on Steam, and therefore I'm putting this down as a backend error. It could still mean that someone has done some deliberate tweaking to do this, but I don't think it's anything for us users to worry about :P

Lol, just like someon others when they first saw this downloading, I was getting pretty worried that someone had sent something malicious through Steam, when all we needed to do was search to game title in the Steam search to see that the game is in fact genuine.

it still doesn't help the fact that those of us that want to play quake now can't till this gets sorted out
Uarerxi Jan 24 @ 1:46pm 
guys this totally works.
Completely exit the Steam client.
Open the run dialogue by pressing windows key + r
Type steam://flushconfig then press enter.
Restart your computer.
Now, launch Steam directly from the installation folder, not from a pre-existing shortcut (~C:\program files (x86)\Steam).
The Steam application will either appear as Steam or Steam.exe depending on whether your settings show file extensions.

i just did that and now i have quake back

I didn't even have to do that. Just did the flushconfig and all was well.
