I attempt to join a server, it almost loads, then my game freezes, takes up near all of my memory, and closes. No error messages, no “hl2.exe has stopped responding”, nothing. Just bloody shuts off. I have tried reinstalling Garry’s mod, and disabling my addons, but no dice. I also tried the supposed “vgui_allowhtml 0” fix, but it says that it’s not a valid command. I don’t get it.
Go to your GMod root folder (steamapps/common/GarrysMod) and check if there are any .mdmp files there. If yes, upload them here: http://dumps.metastruct.uk.to and post the link here.
That’s the most recent one.
Edit: Sorry for the wall of text. This is my first time uploading one of these.
This mite be a shot in the dark man but i had the same issue and this is what i did.
it was a direct x issue adding this(-dxlevel 91) to the launch option’s fixed it i also enabled direct x in the video option’s. To do this, go to garry’s mod in steam right click it, click (properties) and then click (Set launch options) then add this
You should also enabled direct x in the video option’s in game.
its more of a loophole than a fix but anyway you can change the resolution to what ever your screen is but dont change anything else or it wont work i know it sounds far fetched but it worked for me.
post back if this work’s for you
Use -dxlevel 95 , not 91.
That just put it really close to the screen. I actually managed to get onto the server yesterday after removing my legacy addons, so I think that was the problem. Thank you for helping, though. You’re like the master of this section of the forums!
