The game loads endlessly

Currently I’m having an issue where after I start up the game on Steam, it just sits there on the title screen loading. Forever. I’m not sure why, I don’t have that many things installed. I only have a few models and tools and it was just recently that I cleaned up my gmod folder. I already tried verifying the integrity of the games cache, but that didn’t do anything either. I’ve already reinstalled this game loads of times before and I’m getting really tired of doing it, so if any one of you has a solution or an idea of how to fix this, I’d really appreciate it.

Hmm, I had this problem. Happens sometimes too. Try starting the game, and if it does it, go to task manager, and close gmod. Then, right after, start the game again. Worked for me.

Try verifying the game cache or defragmenting the game, that oughta work. (Note, copy your maps and addons if you want to do this, they might dissapear)
