!!!!:. Fix the recent Garry's Mod Crashing .:!!!!

To fix this error (where the games stops working with or without error message), do the following:

Go to your C:\Program Files\steam\steamapps\Username\garrysmod\garrysmod \cfg
There you will find a file called Content.txt , open that file with notepad/wordpad.
and remove all the text inside it, and replace it with this.

“Content”
{
“240”
{
“mount”“1”
}
“420”
{
“mount”“1”
}
“380”
{
“mount”“1”
}
“300”
{
“mount”“1”
}
“340”
{
“mount”“1”
}
“360”
{
“mount”“1”
}
“400”
{
“mount”“1”
}
}

Then save your file, close it, and simply start up your garry mod.
End of story for today, when valve releases a fix for it, simply go to your garry mod.
in the menu you get at the beginning , when you first start up your garry mod.
you will find something called: Gmod settings.
and there you can enable all your games back on.
for now, if you enable Team fortress 2 also, your garry mod will no longer work

Creds go to Killabeat

*Raging wolf was allowed to copy paste my way on how to fix it.

Hopefully this will reduce the massive threadspamming.

If not, then Garry is god because he came up with the name “Mingebag”.

works

Worked like a charm! Thanks!

No problem.

Quite funny to know that the fix was actually so easy to find :slight_smile:

Works. I guess Tf2 update messed things up…

ITS TF2 Fault i thought it was just my pc…

So wait, I can’t enable tf2 with this fix? (Sorry, I just don’t understand him.)

tf2 better fix this
Double click steam icon bottom right > my games > delete TF2 Content
then
put the txt from his post in the content.txt file and it works i just did it now my gmod is working :smiley: thanks owner u iz cool

If you enable team fortress 2= you crash.
so no, we have to WAIT on valve to fix the issue.
in the meantime we can play garry mod with the fix, but without team fortress 2.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! My gmod works now :smiley:

Still don’t work for me. Yes, I have deleted TF2 content and changed the content mounting script

So you are making a problem a bigger problem by fucking things up more?
:krad2:
I’d rather wait for a hotfix.

What? This IS a hotfix, you moron! You change what content is being mounted, and it unmounts TF2! Are you retarded?

And after, you can unmount what else you had unmounted no problem.

Wat…?

When the bug is fixed, you go to settings, mount TF2 by checking it and restart GMod, as easy as pancakes.

What I was saying was, if you had Episode 2 unmounted for a reason, you can go in and unmount it again. I was saying this because the script mounts every GCF EXCEPT TF2. I had the Episodes unmounted for disk space reasons.

It’s not a hotfix, only official patches can count as one.

You just made a:

It would just be easier and say to unmount TF2
