If your PC can’t handle the new Garry’s Mod update or you don’t like it very much. Try this workaround, it worked for me.
- At least ONE source game.
- The old “garrysmod_content.gcf”.
- Fully downloaded and installed Source SDK Base (look up in your Tools tab in Steam).
- GCFScape (Google it)
How to do it:
Rename the old GMod GCF to “garrysmod content classic.gcf” and then put it in your SteamApps foler.
Open up Steam and launch Source SDK Base test at least ONCE.
Open the old GMod GCF using GCFScape and then extract the “garrysmod” folder into Source SDK Base folder (do not extract reslists).
.\Steam\SteamApps<Steam user name>\Source SDK Base\garrysmod
Right click “Source SDK Base” in Steam and click “Create desktop shortcut”.
Put “-game garrysmod” at the end of the shortcut and rename it to whatever you want (I prefer Garry’s Mod 10 Classic).
Report to me if it works or if it doesn’t
The new directories:
Addons folder: .\Source SDK Base\garrysmod\addons
Main folder: .\Source SDK Base\garrysmod
Maps folder: .\Source SDK Base\garrysmod\maps\
NOTE: Multiplayer tested. It works! But you can only join a server that has the same version of GMod that you’re running.
PS: You have two GMods at once!
