How do you get the addons gma files back?

I deleted my addons in my addons folder, how do I get them back? Steam isn’t repairing them and when I am in-game it says they are downloading but they are not :tinfoil:. Please help, no one has replied to this issue for me for these last 2 days in gmod discussion in steam. Thank you.

Just wait for the addons to finish downloading in game.

They don’t download though, new addons which gma files I have not deleted download but the old ones just skip immediately to the next one.

Post console log.

[editline]4th January 2015[/editline]

Its because I deleted the addons in the folder but how do I get them back D: ?

It fails to download for some reason. Maybe the Steam servers are busy?

[editline]4th January 2015[/editline]

It’s not because you deleted the files, they will download back automatically if you do. Something causes your connection to Steam not work properly or something.

So do you think it will fix itself automatically eventually? I have had this problem for awhile.

I have no idea. Try changing download region in Steam settings?

Sadly, it is not working D:

This issue is irritating me, all I want to do is play GMod with addons. Is that too much to ask? D:

[editline]5th January 2015[/editline]

I’ll just delete my gmod folder, clean install.

Did that, it was just a waste of time. I give up.
