how to get the files in to my gmod(no addons folder)?

I cant figure out how to get the props and tools and other stuff in to my garrys mod folders so i can play please if any one knows how contact me

What the hell are you talking about? Also, use commas and periods.

Go into \steam\steamapps[your username]\garrysmod\garrysmod and create a folder named “addons” and move files into the addon format there.

I’m talking about the new update for gmod cause after the update my gmod addons folder was gone and now i dont know were to put addons for gmod like phx and wire mod and tools


oh ok thx highdefge :slight_smile:

lol this is a dumb thread you make a fricking folder

Sorry to the OP but he’s right. Anyone with even a low level of tech knowledge (my 95 year old grandpa is higher than that.) should be able to figure that out in about 5 seconds.

I was about to make a thread about this. Though I found this and thought there might be answers to the question,Thank you.

He’s new, so leave him alone.

new to technology?

I downloaded a pack of weapon models, I extracted them into garrysmod/garrysmod/addons folder and it’s still not working, any help?

P.S it contains weapons with sounds

If it has a info.txt file I believe that’s an addon, and ones with out you have to manually extract to the right folders. And it doesn’t matter if it contains sounds, those are called sweps.

can someone tell me how this gets into gmod and how like in plain english

Props and other crap(With out info.txt) Computer/program files/steam/steamapps/username/garrysmod/garrysmod/materials(something like that) and drop the stuff in the folder, unless if theres another folder that asks to overwrite then do so if ya want. And that goes for any folder.

For addons(Has info.txt in folder) Computer/program files/steam/steamapps/username/garrysmod/garrysmod/addons (If not there then create one!) and then drop it in.

So wher am I to find steam apps cause for some fucking reason I can’t find steam apps

You go to the folder saying My Computer. Do you really need me to make a video? Although I hate doing this for newbies…

Hell i know how to do everything but download files to gmod

but yes I would like vid if u would but I couldn’t get my friend to tell me how to

I just told you what to do! Why say you know how to do everything when you don’t! You can just simply read what I’ve said and their ya go!

Ok I said know how to do everything BUT download the files

Lol @ his Youtube.

Do you actually own Garry’s Mod? Because if so you would have a Steam folder with Steamapps inside it. Unless you changed the install location it should be in (Your respective main drive):/Program Files (x86 on 64-bit)/Steam/Steamapps/

Oh and by the way I’m trying to find things because I just downloaded it yesterday but I do know all the controls… I’m not even on the computer any way I’m on my Ipod so I’m trying get it now not later after I figure out I need help
