Help? I'm desperate.

I keep having problems with my new server.

The first problem I had, was that it wasn’t setting my gamemode correctly. I figured that out I suppose.

Now i’m having problems with the HUD not working. The gmod server isn’t recognizing that I want the gamemode’s HUD. It keeps setting it to sandbox’s. I don’t know how to fix it. I’m not sure if this is a darkrp problem, or a problem with the server setting the gamemode correctly. Help? I’m so desperate right now. Thanks

Here’s my server cfg, autoexe, and command line.

I know it’s messy, but yeah.

Either you made up a decent fake password for your post, or you want to change that.

I’m an idiot obviously. Can you edit your comment now? ha.

You should be changing it rather than hiding it.

it’s changed.

Get rid of

"gamemode" "darkrp"
"sv_gamemode" "darkrp"

from your .cfg files and add

+gamemode darkrp

to your command line parameters.

This is the correct way of doing it. It may not solve your HUD problem.

If it does not, post server and client console log after joining your server.

Caps lock broke?


I figured out the problem though,

I had some HUD that darkrp was calling, because the stupid thing didn’t realize that it wasn’t really a hud (only a folder called hud, which had nothing in it)

Anyways, that “hud” obviously wasn’t working because it had no scripts, and gmod just put the hud back to sandbox.

Problem solved, thanks for the sarcastic “helpful” answers.

1 person tried to help with the problem,
1 person helped me with almost getting my server trashed by random trolls on facepunch,
and 1 person is just an ass with no time on his hands, that comments on my broken caps lock.

fantastic community.

Thank you person that tried to help <3

Not really, they usually have one of three things:
