garrys mod not updating

my garrys mod is not updating but all my other games update by them selves. i also dont have the new background. i only have the new font

Right click gmod in the steam games list and go on properties and make sure updates are set on.

its been on

do you have retail or pirated gmod?

retail

What do you mean it’s “Not Updating”, does it get stuck when launching or are you getting a string tables error?

Consider yourself lucky. The latest update of G-Mod completely broke it…

delete the garrysmod folder in steam and go delete local content in steam then re-install, IT SHOULD GRAB TEH LATEST FILES.

i can start the game fine. but i just get no updates for it. i don’t have the new updates
