I am using gmod 13 and i am using the Smart Snap that I got from within the GMod13 tool addons browser so it should be compatible with this version. I unsubscribed from all my addons then deleted my entire garry’s mod folder and redownloaded it but I still have this problem.
Well I just figured it out after all these years. Turns out you have to press the ‘use’ button to snap your view to the red x. Now this had over 50 views and no one told me that and I bet some of you knew but oh well at least the best game ever just got better.
