Well I tried disabling all of them that didn’t work unfortunately. When I tried disabling all of them it froze for a while like 3 minutes. I tried both the non-dev branch and the dev branch. I also noticed whenever I disconnect whether it’s single or multiplayer that it will also freeze up the game similar to when I start up gmod, or if I am disabling or enabling all addons, even an individual one. When addons are installing and/or updating, when it finishes the last addon it will freeze for that long period of time. Even when I quit the game it will freeze up for a while before finally going to the desktop. This is unbelievable I didn’t get the symptoms of it disconnecting slowly and quitting the game slowly until recently. Almost everything I do I have to wait an extended amount of time.
I’m guessing this means I’m going to have to delete addons… unless there are still other things to try. Yesterday I uninstalled steam completely reinstalled it along with my games and it’s still doing this. By the way I still don’t know what Garry did in that patch where one of the change logs said that addons should load much faster. I would think workshop addons should load pretty smoothly. Since support threads aren’t allowed on the github issues repository, I don’t have any chance of Garry noticing this.
