So, last night my Garry’s Mod was working completely fine, no issues whatsoever. Been playing it literally for months, 1374 hours on record.
Today I get home and try to launch Garry’s Mod, it freezes on the loading screen, and in task manager stops responding.
What I tried, in order:
- Delete local game cache and reinstall
- Do so a second time
- Manually delete all garry’s mod folders except for addons, models and materials, reinstall
- Manually delete /all/ files under garrys mods folders, reinstall
- Uninstall Garry’s Mod, delete all files in Steam except for Steamapps and Steam.exe, reinstall once steam was installed
None of it worked. I googled it, and apparently only one person has fixed it, by reformatting their entire computer.
