CRASHING WHEN OPENING DEVELOPER CONSOLE [DirectX 8.0-8.1]

/threadtitle This should be relatively quick to answer… but I still do not know why this occurs. When I run the game in DXlevel 9.5 the issue is gone but the molests my gpu I want to get back to dx 8

the issue is you’re using directx 8

why would GMod and DX9 make your GPU fuck up? Is your pc from like 2003-5? Source is extrememly optimized, and most computers can run it.

GMod has far too many issues with DX8.
