Steam problems
Hi there. I purchased the game off Steam two days ago and I have been able to play it, but I don't think it is installed or something. Here is the thing:

Whenever I click on the desktop shortcut that was created when I purchased the game it says something like "First time installation" or something similar and a bar starts to fill up. Suddenly, a pop up appears saying something like "this product cannot be installed because it failed Windows authentification tests" or something like that and it aborts the install. I am able to play the game (although it takes a long time to load, even when I exceed the recommended specs by a small margin) but it does not show up in my programs list (in control panel) so I don't know how to uninstall it (if I ever needed to). Also sometimes the game refuses to boot for no particular reason.

I am extremely addicted to it and I would like to resolve this issues. Can someone help?

Steam problems
I buy Rig'n'roll yesterday on STEAM. I have two problems

- How can I save a good configuration of the game on my computer so that the game does not "lag" more:confused:

Pentium 4 2.40GHz
2.50gb ram,
512mb video card ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP

- Also the game bug after a while (the road disappear and I is below the decoration).

Thank you for helping me and sorry for my bad English:-P.

You are running on the bare minimum specs for the game. Alter resolution to 800x600 and all settings to minimum and you might have a decent shot of running the game

Are you trying to apply the hotfix patch to the game?
If so with steam you have to manually select the folder where Rig'N'Roll is installed which should be in the steam folder under common in program files

Steam never installs its games in program files it installs it in a subfolder on its own.

This is probably why the patch said there wasn't any version of the game found.

I am hoping this was helpful to you.

Guys we don't need 5 threads broadcasting problems with Steam. One thread is sufficient. Obey the forum rules.

In answer to the Hotfix question:

Steam has it already installed. That's why it won't except the patch (Hotfix) to my understanding.

Steam installs to program files. I have it at D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common (this is where the games are). Also the Hotfix does not allow for manual installation. You can't direct where to install it. It either detects the game, or it won't. The most common reason that it won't is because your current version already includes the Hotfix. Impulse, Steam, Retail DVD versions, already have it.

This is a prehistoric configuration :P. Pentium 4 lol.

I bought RignRoll of Steam. But I dont suffer from any kind of problem. Only the game lags. But thats because RignRoll has done bad on performance.
