oh please, my Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator

my dear Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator looks like this in-game

please help SOS

Does it do this every time you start up Gmod? If not, restart the game. If that doesn’t work, verify your game files. If that doesn’t work, reinstall the game.

I remember this issue back from Steampipe; is your garrysmod folder in steamapps/common? If so, put -dxlevel 95 in your startup parameters.
