After many re-installs (and a couple of threads in this section) I’ve decided I need a proper thread that details the problems I’ve been having a bit more thoroughly in a bit to get some help.
From what I’ve heard I either have a Lua virus (fresh reinstalls disprove this theory) or a pirated version of Gmod (I can assure you I don’t. I’m an honest person that bought a limetless program at a small price).
Firstly, there’s the water. Lifeless, boring and brown:
Looks bad right? Wait till you see what it looks like underneath:
Right. That’s worse isn’t it? Thought so. Here’s a picture underwater, but looking up at the sun:
Water from the Orange Box engine seems to fail me as well it’s the same in Episode 2:
All water still has impact splashes.
There is also a huge problem with the option menu:
As you can see, the ‘Video’ menu appears behind the main ‘Options’ menu, the blue box being dragged down for selection. The selected video options themselves range from ‘Very High’ textures to ‘Simple Reflections’ on the water. Most are not on the the ‘Recommended for you system*’ settings and even if I select another and ‘Apply’, they stay on their original random settings. ie. I cannot change anything, even if I can see through the merged menus.
Source games I have (* means recently played):
Counter Strike: Source
Day of Defeat: Source
Hafl-life 2: Deathmatch
Half-life 2: Episode One*
Half-life 2: Episode 2*
Team Fortress 2*
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast*
Specs if you need them, but I haven’t had a problem before. All on high, good framerates:
Windows Vista 32bit
AMD Quadcore 2.2Ghz
Nvidea GeForce 8400
Current driver 181.22
Basically, why has any of this happened and what can be done about it? Many thanks to anyone that can help. These problems are really putting me off Gmod.
