Default removing custom server content?

Some KF servers download custom content to my computer before I connect. I'm talking about stuff that's not standard on a typical KF server (weapon packs, and stuff that I have no idea what it is, or if I will ever use it). There should be some sort of notification before choosing a server that says 'we will download a bunch of our custom junk on your computer. proceed with caution.'

I like to play the stock maps, with stock items. So where do I go to remove custom content? Running XP. Thanks.

um yah you wanna delete everything in the cache folder where you installed killing floor. it should be found here:

(C\programfiles\Steam\steamapps\common\killingfl oor\Cache

the things you see inside the folder should be named example:
1A8D5FE149A65CA8957A9E9D0472DAE5-1
or maybe
2A2D26F747438561C03EF5AFC06CCE8B-1

if something went wrong. just click the verify button inside steam.
you can access this button by right clicking killing floor inside steam library and click -> properties -> local files -> verify integrity of game cache.

I don't get why you would want to delete it.

Are you pressed for harddrive space?

be the grammatical structure and otherwise structure of the sentence in which word order is important, be convoluted via the use of complication that is superfluous?

I do not believe it to be extraneous, to procure the logic of ascertaining the requirement of the deletion and elimination.

As i seldom do, i am inquiring as to determine the necessity of the action that is the removal of the files, known as custom content.

However i believe that the particular approach which thou took to posing thine query is superfluous, and quite far from the lucid and concise method of communication of which the forums are accustomed. Being of equivalent estimation, Timur and i seem to have attained an analogous verdict.

For proof, just watch how long this thread will get about a simple technical question that's already been answered (as of now, this is the 7th post when the question was answered on the 2nd; just add water and watch it grow!).

Quite Fancy english going on in here. It's far too early in the morning for me to be bothered with it.

As for Kevo's question:

Do you really need to remove the content?

By that i mean is there some real reason for it?

If you just don't like it there then that's pretty silly.

it's valid to ask why considering the cache files have no effect on your game itself, and if there are different versions of the same file, then those will be downloaded too.
the only reason i can see as to why you would want to delete them is to free up hdd space, otherwise they dont do anything at all until you connect to the servers that use them.

the answer to his question was in the second post, right after the question was asked, so then candlejack wanted to know why, because cache files dont do anything.

Damn these forums are going to hell.

Back on topic.

.../steam/steamapps/common/killingfloor/cache/

is where they are stored. Just select the contents and delete.

If you don't want to download custom content. Then make sure 'Perks Enabled' is checked in the server browser. That way only whitelisted servers will be shown, this will result in minimum downloading.

All items in the cache are removed after (by default) 30 days, so downloaded content doesn't pile up endlessly.
