Alright so I have just gotten Gmod as a gift from a friend last night. I was able to play just fine last night but when I launched the game today it freezes at this point here and I am forced to CTRL+ALT+Delete then sign out of my computer account as I cannot even access the task manager.
I have no subscribed workshop content and so far have only played on one server.
The server is that beyond dark rp server.
It force downloaded about 5mins of assets on me first time i joined but my friend says that is not the issue.
My computer specs are more than capable of running this game and many other high end games.
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz
System Type: 64-bit Operating system. X64-based processor
NVidia GEForce Dont really remember which one but its high end and the computer is only 1-2 yrs old
Again, I literally JUST installed it yesterday and was able to play.
