The Half Life 2 startup menu?

Every time i start garrys mod it takes forever because it loads up the menu thing where you see your avatar looking at the one city from half life 2. This makes my game take forever to start up, how can i get rid of it? it didnt start annoying me until i bought half life 2, does that have something to do with it? how can i get it to go back to just the background?

English, please.


That is the normal background.

Hes probably launching the first HL2 map. Or he has some fucked up version of GMod.

well can anyone help me?

Add “-console” to your launch options.

Problem solved.
