Keep Client Timeout

Heyo.
I have played Gmod for about 1 year now.
Recently i keep getting “client timeout” after every 10sec-10min i have joined a sever.

I have almost tried to do everything:

  • removed “ClientRegistry.blob”
  • removed all addonds from the game
  • remove all files and reinstalled the game
  • Downgrade Internet Explorer from 9 BETA to 8 (Most severs use HTML somehow)
  • Added “-autoconfig” to the launch options
  • reinstalled steam (cleaned all files … ye ALL -.-’ ) and reinstalled Gmod again

I also keep getting read/write errors of config.cfg every time i change a setting:
“ConVarRef cl_himodels doesn’t point to an existing ConVar
exec: couldn’t exec userconfig.cfg
Host_WriteConfiguration: Wrote cfg/config.cfg”

All my other games works fine …

System information’s:
> Processor : Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2500MHz
> Video Card : ATI Radeon HD 5850 (1GB DDR5)
> Network Card : Intel 82567V-2 Gigabit Network Connection
> Operating System : Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
> DirectX : Version 11.00

I tried to use “cl_timeout 1000” … with no luck.
Still getting read/write error of config.cfg and since severs uses that information:
Sending 1137 ‘User Info’ ConVars to server (cl_spewuserinfoconvars to see)

I think thats what make me timeout.

console:

What addons do you have installed? (if any)

“- removed all addonds from the game” (Post 1, Line 7)
Heh, that shut reply ur question ;P.
I have tried to remove all steam files and reinstalled it (with no addons) and still get the same errors.
Either it’s a Gmod update, steam cloud or my Pc that’s doing it(since im on Win7 64bit).
I am almost sure the problem is Gmod wont load/write config.cfg

I derp’d sorry about that. Have you tried the -dxlevel options?

Also, make sure your user has full access to the garrysmod folder (modify/read/write)

HL2.exe is running with full admin access and i never had problems with the DX ;D.
I can try force run it in dx9 … but as we all know and hate … steam games can’t run in dx10 or dx11 so it won’t change anything.
The problem happened recently … so something must be f…ehhmmed messed up.
I can try doing a format on my PC and seeing if it change anything … sad, but I can try.

If you’re already running in DX 8, which is what your recent post implies, then that’s a bad sign.

Although one thing, client timed out, connecting to internet games are you? It seems a bit like you might have a connection issue if you’ve tried all basic and advanced trouble shooting options.

Im runing it in DX9. I can join a sever in all steam games without any problems … except Gmod.
When i try to join a sever it either timeout in loading or after 10sec-10min i had joined a sever.
Since Gmod-severs request the config file …

  •      "Sending 1137 'User Info' ConVars to server (cl_spewuserinfoconvars to see)"
    

… and Gmod wont load/write/work with the config.cfg…

  •      "exec: couldn't exec userconfig.cfg
    
  •      Host_WriteConfiguration: Wrote cfg/config.cfg
    
  •      ConVarRef cl_himodels doesn't point to an existing ConVar"
    

… do i think that’s what makes me timeout

Try it in DX8 then, trust me, despite what you say it may make a difference

I tried to run it in DX8 … but it still wont load/save/work with the config.cfg file which makes me time out.
There’s nothing wrong with single player in my Gmod … its the config file that cant load/write/work

By the looks of all the code you posted your config.cfg is either outdated or broken for some reason, it seems to be telling the game to do thing that don’t exsist or it thinks doesn’t exsist.

Although don’t take my word for it, I don’t do any scripting or LUA or any kind of coding, I’m only reading what I see

Yep … the problem is … the file exist … and since i have reinstalled Gmod like 3 times, there shut not be any problems with the file
… either it’s a Gmod update, Steam-Cloud or my PC that makes it fail
