Revert GMod 13 to GMod 12?
I was a hardcore GMod 12 player, and loved GMod 12. I played the demo for 13, and I was fairly upset at the changes that would be made. I had custom items,maps, and gamemodes, some of which I madde myself. I really don't like GMod 13, and I was forced to update to it when it came out,despite checking the "don't automatically update" box on Steam Library. I want the good GMod 12 back, not this new GMod 13, but I haven't been able to find a way to do this. Does anyone know how?

And by the way, DON'T tell me "oh but who ever would want to have GMod 12 when 13 is soooo much better LuLz?!!?". I couldn't care less what you think. I havent used Garry's Mod for real since 13 came out because I dislike it so much. So don't try to tell me I don't want to revert.

I also realize this has been brought up before, but I haven't found anything good, so consider it a bump.

I'm not sure. See if somebody has a copy. Either than that, I doubt there is an official way to revert. Also, what are you trying to do? All of the things you made should work fine with just a few revisions for GMod 13. Either than that, there is no official way to do it, but with pirating and such, well, your on your own with that...

I too liked 12, and i also lost all my items but its one of the things that is out of our hands. maybe there is a way to revert but i doubt there is with out reverting the entire game for everyone. If you do find a way please tell me.

There's no way you can revert to old Garry's Mod. If you ask Garry, he might tell you to fix your stuff to work on Gmod 13. Come on, if you really did all your stuff by yourself then it doesn't take much effort to convert it.

Here's the guide on how to port your Gmod 12 stuff to Gmod 13.

I know with all these updates that seems forced to you, but Garry has warned months before update release that stuff gonna broke in newest update. He also made a beta for developers to make their stuff ready for Gmod 13. Have you been into Gmod 13 beta before?

I had roughly thirty gigabytes worth of addons (mostly composed of ragdolls and props) collected over the years, so imagine how I felt when I found out that they would be useless in the "upgrade" to GMOD 13 and that it would be a mandatory update. That guide posted above doesn't necessarily help my dilemma of the plethora of problems I'm experiencing in attempting to get these "legacy addons" to work properly because I don't understand any of it. Such problems being: missing eye textures in every ragdoll that I can successfully spawn, "error" spawn icons followed by invisible ragdolls or just nonexisting, and some models even crash GMOD 13 to desktop, prompting me with the "hl2.exe has stopped working" error.

I don't want to spend the limited amount of free time I actually have trying to fix this game. That's Garry's job, not mine. I've never experienced any problems when updating to a new version of the game, for example GMOD 9 to GMOD 10, so I don't understand why it has to be so complicated now.

New engine, new features, optimizations and everything that requires him to change the way how things works.

I don't know about you but most of my old models works fine here instead the fact that the spawnlist is not working anymore so you must go through "All" section. If you installed your ragdolls and props in proper way (in addons folder, not in game's models/materials folder) then it should not cause any problem...

P.S. if you have problem with invisible models or everything you might want to check console if it shows any errors

i want the same thing

Actually, I have had at least 30 addons of different ragdolls, weps, tools, GAMEMODES! And when the new update came, none of them work. That's complete bu!l♥♥♥♥ if you are saying most of addons work, someone either has stuff subscribed on steam workshop or converted the Lua files.
I want to have Toxsin+ as a gamemode but I can't, I don't know how to change it. And the tutorials that MIGHT help me are either deleted or they don't exist. It's like they expect you to know how to Lua code? F^ck. No. That's for people with more time than me, I just want to jack-off and play gmod. Sorry for vulgar use of language.
Last b!tch, where can I find tutorials to change old gamemodes to the new ones?

I agree. Garry's Mod 12 was so great, and then Garry's Mod 13 comes with so-called updates and optimizations, but it's really just ♥♥♥♥.

13 lags alot more and has more bugs and crashes than ever before in gmod
Randal Jun 1, 2013 @ 8:26pm 
I suppose you could download Gmod 12 like downloading Gmod 9. Check the web for it.

I like Garry's Mod 13, but I don't make any videos on it either.
