I can fix your Gmod Crashes and other Gmod/DarkRP problems (Read-Only)
!!!!! Stop Posting Comments !!!!!

I will not help you, I have not played gmod in years. I keep this up because I know it will help people out. Plus I figure it has to be easy to find on search engines since people keep finding it. Just stop posting, please keep this read-only.


Please go to this link below, I no longer play gmod but the people behind this post are active in gmod...
http://steamcommunity.com/app/4000/discussions/1/364040961436887544/




Hint: Read everything.


- Everyone should do this first fix below, even if your Gmod works.

-----Gmod Crashes on start-up, or other problems you can't fix-----

- You have to re-verify your game cache, first step close gmod.

- Anti-Viruses will mess up your game cache, so have them running while you do this next step!

- Now open the Steam client>Library>Right click Garry's Mod>Properties>Local Files>"Verify Integrity of Game Cache"


-----Gmod crashes when you press the console key-----

- This may also fix random crashes, this can't hurt anything so try it.

- Ok so first close Gmod, then open the Steam client>Library>Right click Garry's Mod>Properties>"Set Launch Options" and type this in +mat_dxlevel 95

- Now you need to make a new Gmod icon on your desktop, delete the old one and go back to Steam>Library>Right click Garry's Mod>Create Desktop Shortcut


-----Gmod crashes when I join the server-----

- This should fix it, unless your past the downloads, but you need to download the workshop collection and all FastDL files for the server you are going to play on. I suggest downloading as much as you can, let it crash, then do this.

- In-Game go to Option>Multiplayer>"When a game server tries to download custom content to your computer" change that to "Do not download any custom files".


-----The wire text-screens in game don't work-----

- Type this is console wire_rt_fix


-----The scoreboard(tab) isn't working and showing an older version-----

- Type this is console FAdmin_IsScoreboard 1


-----Suggestions and common PC problems-----

- Get more RAM you should have a minimum of 8 GB, but should get 16 GB. This will make sure your RAM never fills.

- Delete useless junk on your HDD(Hard Drive Disk) and run a defragment and a disk cleanup. HDDs that are almost full run very slow, try to keep as much empty space as possible.

- Unsubscribe to all addons and delete the entire Gmod folder, then reinstall Gmod (go to C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common and just delete the entire gmod folder.). Having to many addons causes tons of problems, you must unsubscribe to all addons and also delete there files, so might as well delete all of Gmod and reinstall. Side note, your settings may have been messed with so deleting the folder will solve this.


-----Other Stuff/Fixes-----

- I have also heard turning all graphic options up high fixes random crashes. I heard it from 1 person who suffered from random crashes, I have not tested it myself and idk anyone else who has tried it.

- Also, make sure your Gmod resolution is the same as your desktop.



***The most common problem is to many addons or settings have been messed with by other servers. The easiest way to fix this is go to the Gmod Workshop and unsubscribe to all workshop addons. Then delete the entire gmod folder, not just uninstall (go to C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common and just delete the entire gmod folder.). Then re-install and try to stick with servers that do not have a crazy amount of addons, or just stick with 1 server. Every server is different, the more default it is the less problems you will have with other servers.(Unless the owner is great at programming Gmod servers, might even be able to reset your settings when you join.)

Hello,
I have bought GMod yesterday and have downloaded the CSS textures and addons to play on a DarkRp server. However just before the end of the loading screen to enter the server my game crashes...
It crashes when "Accessing Workshop" is written on top of the loading bar.
My computer is a Mac and I am running on Mavericks.


Thank you for your help !

Most common game crash in terms of starting a game and then it crashes (joining map crash) is having too many addons, you might want to add that to the list of solutions.

I've been posting fixes on every discussion I see involving Gmod Crashes, but sadly no one ever seems to read past the first post/page. So, I'm going to be the first post this time.

Heres a link to my forum post on my website for a better view of the list below. http://www.rpgurus.org/forum/showthread.php?tid=7

- Everyone should do this first fix below, even if your Gmod works perfect!

No solution to your problem on my list of fixes? No problem, just post here or even on my forums, and I'll see what I can do.

PLEASE MAN HELP ME WITH THIS

Ok so where do i start. So when i start up my GMOD and let it all load up its fine but when i try to join some DarkRP servers like AuroraRP for example it wont load me into it but instead it will crash my game and then i have to restart it. Even though i have played on that server before. This issue is starting to happen on other servers for me and its so annoying because i cant fix it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and i have cleared my game cache and i have even verified my game files but no matter what i seem to do it keeps crashing on me when i try to join some servers and before it never use to do this. I dont even have anything at all running in the backround when i go to play gmod. can someone please tell me how to fix this issue.

Yea that's good advice. Servers can mess it up for some players but not all, sometimes you need to edit settings that other servers might have changed. I'll try to get a list together of those, there are a few on my website forums. Not sure if it's still up. I'll pay the bill if it isn't.

Also, Everyone if you have problems you should go to the Gmod workshop and unsubscribe to all workshop addons. Then delete your entire gmod folder and re-download gmod. This is the easiest way to solve to many addons or settings that have been messed with.

Sorry for taking so long to respond I haven't played gmod in a while, but I will probably end up playing it again. Also no on replied at first so I thought it was a dead thread.
