Materials and Mostly everything client side broken for me

I can only use Direct x7, otherwise my game will look like this

There has to be some kind of way to bypass this, Materials are broken and my computer is a toaster box, and will basically blow up if under extreme stress from Direct 9+

Help me Gmod Devs

Get a better PC if it’s really a “toaster box.” There are minimum requirements to run the game.

Theoretically, the only way to get the game to run perfectly smoothly on anything lower than DirectX 9 is to decompile and recompile every single model and texture to use only DirectX 7 parameters.
Understandably, this is impractical. Just upgrade your PC, it may be a bit costly, but it’ll be worth every penny.
