Can''t see materials, help.

Hello, my problem is that I can’t see materials on props.
It isn’t the purple and black problem, I have CSS and half life, so it isn’t the issue.
The problem started yesterday, basically I can’t see materials.

If I change a material of a prop, other people can see that I changed, but I can’t see anything.
If someone can help me out, I’ll be really thankful, thanks!

Having this problem as well. I’ve tried deleting my garrysmod/garrysmod/materials folder.

Good to know I’m not the only one who’s having this problem xD
I’ve reinstalled my game twice, and I still have this problem.

Might be related to our hardware?

I doubt it, noticed it after joining a server yesterday. But just in case, i’m using an AMD radeon 7900 series.
But i doubt it would be the problem.

Ah, NVIDIA GTX 770 here…
Waiting for someone to help me solve this problem…

I think it might be something to do with the game using DirectX version 8

Is yours using it? you can check it in options/video/advanced.

Software DirectX level: DirectX V9
Hardware DirectX level: DirectX V8

Managed to fix the problem by adding “-dxlevel 90” to the launch parameters.

The game now behaves and is using hardware and software DirectX V9
changing materials now works.

Hope this works for you too.

Only problem left is after reinstalling addons, workshop is freaking out, now have 5 pages of blank workshop entries in the addons section.

Changing your DX level will solve most of the update problems, just have to be 90.

(Glad I looking around before asking the same question)
