Gmod loading problems:

Scince the update today whenever I try to launch Gmod it will load like normal, and then give my a black screen. Any help is accepted…

I found that a server with “the tower” might be overloading my Gmod…I don’t know if this is true or not, but if it is, I’ll just have to wait it out…

If you can’t even get to the point where you try to connect to a server, then a server isn’t the issue.

Try lowering your graphics to dxlevel 80;

  1. open steam
  2. find GMod
  3. right click it
  4. click properties
  5. click “set launch options”
  6. put -dxlevel80

If it still doesn’t help, try -dxlevel70 instead

Well, I tried both of those, but I notice the screen goes black when it reaches Initializing Serverside…
