OK, so, I have removed most of my addons and stuff, but the problem is is that, I have tons of huge NPC packs and other shit inside of my garrysmod folder in materials sounds lua models, etc. How do i clean these out? like delete them? I cant for the life of me do it, its all confusing the folders all have unrelating names etc, and i dont want to mess up anything, so, please help, spawning NPC’s in Flatgrass crashed me with memory error, and so does anything else, too. Please help, i want to be able to play GMOD again without deleting ALL of my mods…
1.Take out your addons folder with the things you want.
3.Put the files back in
5.PROFIT (and no crashing :D)
Is there any possible way to keep some mods that are mixed in with the materials/sounds/lua etc? Probably not, i;m just asking, and thanks.
OK i did it, and ever since, My shadows have been messed up, it says something about cannot find dynamic prop: idle1 and other stuff, i was playing on singleplayer, by the way, i have EP2 installed, just recently…
That’s probably because you have addons that use some of the files that you deleted. The best solution is to do a fresh-install of garrysmod and re-download everything. (This sounds like a lengthy alternative but it is really a good idea if you do this every few months in order to eliminate those pesky addons nobody cares to update).
As for the future, I recommend keeping your addons in the addons folder, and or making downloads into one large addon. For instance, I made an addon that has all of my models and materials, so if i ever come across a problem I do not delete something that is important. I have also made a program that logs all the files in a folder and saves it to a txt file so I can reference it later if I need to delete an addon that I extracted to my main garrysmod folder.
