It takes me ages to connect to a gmod server. Its an real pain when connecting to a Zombie survival server…to only have everyone barricade everything and having me left 4 dead. I heard that if you clean-up your addons folder even though the server does not need certain addons, they will make you connect faster. And I have alot of junk in there that I think are important.
- Clean up addons
- Delete .svn folders from your addons
- Hit escape while loading
- Defragment the game regularly
I can understand everything else but hitting escape while loading. What does that do?
It stops the game from loading lots of useless junk. Gets you in the game a bit quicker. You might get Lua error spam about “player:InVehicle” being a nil value, though.
