Game crashes on map load?

Okay, so I noticed recently that my copy of Garry’s Mod seems to have problems when loading a map.

Starting the game works fine, as does loading the map, but when it is finished loading, it shows the map for a seconds or two, often with the message “Reloading Node Graphs” or something along those lines and then promptly crashes.

It was working fine two or three days ago. Removing any addons downloaded since then and verifying the game cache does not seem to help.

A few other users on Steam Community seemed to be having some similar problems, but it doesn’t look like too many people have it.

Could someone help me with this?

Here’s an example of what I was talking about with other users having this problem. I’ve seen a few threads about it scattered across Steam.

Go to your GMod root folder, are there any .mdmp files there?

Several. I delete them every so often to clear up space, but they never really seem to affect the actual game. What should I do with them?

Im having this same issue, in a way, im not sure how to read the dump files either.

Take the newest 2 and put them here http://dumps.metastruct.uk.to

Send me the links

In the post please, I hate when people PM me with their links

Okay, here:

It’s an issue wit your addons

Huh, odd. I’ll see if removing that addon changes things. If it does, I’ll mark it solved.

[editline]22nd June 2013[/editline]

Okay, I tried removing the addon you pointed out, it didn’t change anything.

Here’s the most recent dump, can you check it?

No you didn’t, there’s still a ton of lua errors.

I removed both addons you pointed out, it’s still not working.

Should I just go ahead and do a clean install?

No, send me another fresh log.

-whoops merge timed out-

Agh, it’s being a problem again. Here’s the most recent dump.

i searched the dlls pointed out in the crash. a lot of them are related to graphics drivers. did you try updating your drivers? if it didn’t work, tell us your graphics card? although im still not completely sure why it would cause lua errors

EDIT: you still have tons of addons installed. unsubscribe to all of them, so we can tell more precisely what is the cause

I guess I’ll try manually combing through my addons. Thanks.
