I have got a big problem with my Garry’s mod. Whenever I join multiplayer game, the game crashes immediatelly after joining. It shows me the map for a tiny moment (less than 1 sec). Then it stucks, minimalizes and I get my “favourite” message that HL2.exe stopped working and needs to be closed. There is no dump file created in Steam/dumps folder. I have already tried:
• to get fresh copy of Garry’s mod by renaming steamapps/mysteamusername/garrysmod to garrysmodx
• to run Steam as administrator
• verify game cache
• truncate the cache folder
• start singleplayer game before joining multiplayer game --> I have managed to attempt to debug the HL2.exe what stopped working with my Visual Studio:
Unhandled exception at 0x0080047f in hl2.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation. Clicking "continue" button didn't make any sense, the exception was called again and again (obviously.. :D) Call stack: 01# 0080047f() 02# MaterialSystem.dll!6ecbf8fe() 03# [Frames below may be incorrect and/or missing, no symbols loaded for MaterialSystem.dll] 04# MaterialSystem.dll!6ecbe51c() 05# MaterialSystem.dll!6ecbec0f() 06# MaterialSystem.dll!6ecbfc12() 07# MaterialSystem.dll!6ecad283() 08# MaterialSystem.dll!6ecada21() 09# MaterialSystem.dll!6ecad7ea() 10# vstdlib.dll!6ee33f74() 11# vstdlib.dll!6ee36479() 12# tier0.dll!6ee9a83d() 13# tier0.dll!6eea8771() 14# tier0.dll!6eea8816() 15# kernel32.dll!76713677() 16# ntdll.dll!77249f02() 17# ntdll.dll!77249ed5()
I played 500 hours of Garry’s mod on this computer and never had this problem before. An only thing I made was that I have updated the graphics card driver. It was about 150 revisions old (lol).
Graphics card - NVIDIA GT 220M (newest driver)
Processor - Intel® Core 2 Duo - each core @2,2 GHz
RAM - 4 GB
Operation system - Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit version
EDIT! Garrys mod doesnt crash on every mp game. It looks to be server specific. Is that possible? How to fix it then? Server: http://forum.urbangamers.org/index.php - IP: 22.214.171.124:27015
I will appreciate any help from you.
Thank you very much.
