Hello. First of all thanks for this great forum. You’re what I call my last chance to fix the issue I’m having since a few months. If there’s a related post with a fix, I beg your pardon and ask you to link it.
Here’s my spec… Amd phenom ii x4 955, 4 gb ddr3, radeon 5770 1024 ddr5,… well, I can run crysis on high. So it’s not a problem with my hardware. And yes, I was able to play garry’s mod before, with the same specs.
I’ve had that long unresponsive start ups problem that Garry had fixed several months ago. That bug had lasted a really long time (I didn’t pay to find myself blocked at the launch pic with the guy holding the physgun for months). Fortunatly, garry fixed it. I was so happy to read that I immediatly launched gmod and played TTT and all the gamemods I love. The issue was fixed for about 1 week. Then a new update came, and here’s the long unresponsive startup again. I just can’t play gmod anymore since months. This is really getting on my nerves…
What I did : check integrity of game cache, defrag it, delete it from Steam, delete it from Steam+from my steam apps folder, deleting the whole steam folder but the games… No, I don’t want to format my computer or delete around 50gb of games just for garry’s mod.
it looks like the issue was fixed since no post has a related issue.
Once again, it’s not a problem with the " preparing to launch…". It’s the one with the guy holding the physgun when the game is loading (I’m just having the windows circle, not even a loading bar…).
I hope you can help a desperate gmod lover.
