Can't delete this damn game

Post by JinxAlpha » Mon Oct 15, 2012 2:54 am

Well, I tried doing this player model thing, I put it in some of the folder and I couldn't launch OC. So I took it out of the folder and I still coudln't launch it, I tried deleting it by going to Steam Apps and deleting the whole OC file folder containing everything in it. I tried deleting it by control panel but can't find the program when I search it up. I tried deleting it on steam but I don't know how to delete games via Steam, help??!! I also tried uninstalling on Desura. :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Under the assumption that you used the installer from this site, it should show up in Control PanelAdd/Remove Programs (Windows XP) / Programs and Features (Windows Vista / 7+) as Obsidian Conflict. I am uncertain about the procedure for Desura, but it should be able to uninstall the mod if it was used to install it in the first place.

Much like you needed to restart Steam for the mod to show up, you will need to restart Steam again for the entry to be removed from your list.
Apparently, Valve can't make games beyond the number 2.
I think the only time we'll get a Source SDK code update is when it starts having purchasable hats integrated, i.e. hatconomy.

Please do not make assumptions you are not knowledgeable enough to make - that just backfires on yourself.
Tick me off, and I'll be sure to give you the golden treatment. Haven't you heard? Silence is golden.

I was sent to this thread by a friend after I've had trouble deleting this game from my system considering it takes up 2.04 GB of data and won't even run properly on my PC. I attempted to follow your instructions, but cannot find this "control panel" you speak of. If it's in the launcher, that's out of the picture because that doesn't exist on the PC anymore. Is there another method, do I need to install something else, is this even in my control? I can post images if that helps lay out the situation I'm in, before then I'll just be waiting in this 2012 thread until someone comes and helps me. PLease and thank you.

Well, this was an old thread so some stuff doesn't apply to Windows 10 obviously, but the basics are still there. If by any chance with the new bundle it doesn't go away by just deleting the mod folder, head over Windows Start->Configuration->Apps->Apps and features, select OC and uninstall it, is simple.
