A LIST OF KNOWN GARRY'S MOD ERRORS/PROBLEMS + FIXES
Garry's Mod is known for alot of error, bugs and problems.
In this threat i will post some of them and the fixes, if your problem is not listed here reply and i awnser as fast as i can.
GARRY'S MOD WONT LAUNCH WIPHOUT ANY ERRORS
- This is mostly because its still updating, launch it, wait and it should start after a while.
GARRY'S MOD IS LAGGING
-There could be alot of things causing this, frist check your ping, if its not your ping try another server, if you keep having the problem it might be that all the servers are hosted in a location far away from your location, causing lagg. (ex: People from europe could have lagg from servers from USA)
LONG SERVER LOADING TIMES
-Do you got a bad ping like listed above, or is the server far away from your location? Try joining a other server or gamemode and look if that fixes the problem.
- If you join a server and you `see missing map ****** disconnecting` that means the server has a map that you have not downloaded, you can fix this by searching the map name in the steam workshop, download it there and relaunch garry's mod.
- If you are missing textures, make sure all garry's mod texture hungry games are downloaded and launched. (Counter Strike: Source and Half Life 2..) If you dont got those two games, you can always download its textures, just search it, i wont name any links since i dont want this threat to go closed.
SERVER LIST DOES NOT LOAD
- Facepunch is aware of this problem and is trying to fix it for a loong time now, i had this problem and still got this problem too. Mostly its better if you relaunch garry's mod till it works, if this does not work you could try to reinstall it.
-This error results from the improper delivery of necessary game files, here is how to fix it:
Completely exit Steam.
Navigate to your Steam installation folder (~C:\Program Files\Steam)
Delete the 'appcache' folder.
Restart your computer and attempt to launch the game through Steam

HL2.EXE HAS STOPPED WORKING
- Go to your Garry's Mod folder, left click the launcher and change its mode to the newest OS. (This could not work if you dont got Windows 8.)
IF ANY OF THESE PROBLEMS DONT WORK, TRY TO VALIDATE GARRY'S MOD FILES.
-Like stated above, if you need more help just reply!
