This seemed to start happening after the update. The only way I can prevent it is by starting up the game windowed, load the map, then set it back to full screen. But this is aggravating and I don’t want to have to keep resorting to it.
The problem I’m having is that whenever I try to load a map, it initializes the game data (slowly), and when it’s just about to load the game, the audio stutters endlessly and the game freezes. It never gets any farther than that.
I’ve looked for solutions on Google, so inb4letmegooglethatforyou. None of them are proving to be helpful.
I think the problem might be that I may have fucked something up when I tried extracting something to the garrysmod/garrysmod folder. The game was running perfectly fine up to this point.
I tried reinstalling Gmod, but all it does is put all the old stuff back in, including what may be potentially corrupt files and such.
Can someone help me out with this?
