GMOD has a slow loading screen.

Hello Facepunch,

Recently i’ve been playing GMOD and the loading screen has been UBER slow, and when I connect to a map or a server it freezes for 1 to 2 minutes and then goes to the loading screen.

Here are my system specificaitons :

Windows 7 Proffesional OS 64 bit
ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GT 650 Ti 2GB
8 Gigabytes of RAM
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU 2.50 GHz
DirectX11

The loading screen isn’t relevant. It’s about your connection speed to the server. If you have a lot of addons subscribed to in the workshop, your general connection to anything will slow down, especially for single player as you’ll have more addons to cope with while connecting.
Are you using wired or wireless internet connection? Wireless might be the cause as it doesn’t tend to be as strong as a wired connection.

Happens to me too. It’s a common issue; just try to make sure you don’t have too many addons or maps.

DL/UL speed has nothing to do with the loading screen.
