I haven’t played Gmod for a long time, aprox 4~6 months, on any server (Sandbox, Rp, TTT or whatever). I just have used the game for create small ‘arts’ using ragdolls and stuff, nothing wrong and no crashes while creating my things in single mode.
But when i wanted to go back playing Gmod with my friends on some RP server, i have recently getting ‘hl2.exe error’ problem/crash when i’m just about to spawn. Or sometimes when i successfully join in the server and started to walk around i get the error anyways.
So my first try to fix this was ‘Verify Cache’ of the game - no results. Though was some addon i was using, i unsub all of them, tried to play - nothing changed. My last try was reinstalling the whole game, fresh start, joined in the server and boom : crash again.
I made a good research around the web/forums and tried other ‘fixes’ too : ‘Firewall’, Ant Virus, even deleting the Steam files/folders (not the steamapps and Steam.exe). Got no results too. My drivers is all up-to-date.
Edit: I even joined one RP server without custom files(models and materials stuff) just saw all things as ‘missing texture’, i could walk around a bit but randomly, game crashes again.
I even uninsulated all Valve games (Just CSS and HL2 series) and installed them back to see if was some file making my gmod crash - even this keep crashin on ANY online server.
And then i’m here asking for a Plan ‘G’ for you folks: what i need to do now? The weird thing is that, when i play in single mode for a while and successfully ‘quit’ from the game, i keep getting those mdmp files , but the game doens’t crash. But when i’m joining in a online server and crashs, i got no mdmp file from it. Very odd.

I hope someone could help me with this annoying issue. Thanks!
