Lua Panic! Something went horribly wrong! " attempt to index a nil value"
just brought the game from steam. I brought it to 2 of my friends and it works great.
Is there any fixes for this?

I'm getting this too, google brings up nothing of value and not many people seem to get it.

only way is to ask Garry, or modders.

I have this problem. I've had the game for a long time and have recently found this happening. Reinstalling, validating etc has not solved it. Wish I could come up with a solution.

After checking the crash logs (found in the gmod folder) it seems the lua error happens right after the game checks for the Kinect SDK. I tried installing the SDK to see if that would create a workaround, but to no avail. Must be a problem with something else, could be anything. Seems to happen when the game is 'Initializing Serverside'.

I had successfully launched this game before on this system, though I have since swapped graphics cards. I had experienced engine crashes of 'attempts to index a nill value' to which I had prejudicated to have been graphics related when I couldn't launch a fresh install, though I had been perturbed by the fact the game locked up initializing server side.

I'm having the same problem. How do I fix this? I don't even know if I have the proper video card!

That was it - It helped me to run either Garry's Mod and other game, which have shown me nearly the same error - Engine has stopped working. Thanks for solution.

I need to change graphics cars? Oh shiiii...

Just now it happened again, and like last time I was playing around with the WAC addon. Is there any solusion that doesn't involve a new graphics card?

Run your task manager, and look for it. Then click "End Process", that might help.
