I first played Aura Kingdom before it was released on Steam. I've simply been playing it through AeriaGames client Ignite. I want to play it through Steam, but Steam keeps trying to redownload the game.

I've tried copying + pasting the Aura Kingdom folder into Program Files>Steam>SteamApps>Common
but Steam is not recognizing the existing files and continues to attempt to download the game.

I'm participating in the Steam Beta and noticed that starting the download doesn't create a folder for Aura Kingdom in "Common" anymore, like games used to, but instead there is another folder under "SteamApps" called "Downloading" - where the files are, of course, downloading to.

How do I get around this in order to avoid redownloading the files I already have?

Steam has it's own installation system, so it won't recognize games that were not packaged for it. You can add external games to your library but then Steam is just being a launcher.

Once you have installed the game you might be able copy certain files over to fix it should they ever get corrupted, but even that may not work.
