Alright, so Garry’s Mod, my favorite game in the whole world hasn’t been working for a while. It all started when I took part in the “new steam” beta. Now ever sense then, on the main menu any window that is opened is transparent and blocked by another window that should be in the background, which as a little bonus, leaves the server browser or any window showing during a loading screen. When changing my video settings the game sometimes crashes when I set them, and if it doesn’t crash there it crashes in game, either when i use my flashlight(only when shadows is set to the highest setting) or just randomly. Oh yeah, sometimes my screen/textures are all bugged, and this is very unplayable, almost the whole screen is torn up.
Things I’ve tried doing so far:
[li]Reinstalling steam(re-downloading games and all)[/li][li]Reinstalling Garry’s Mod(without addons)[/li][li]Video driver updates and roll backs to different versions.[/li][li]I’ve tried different DX levels ( -dxlevel 80).[/li][li]I’ve asked the Garry’s Mod support team, and they just told me to do what i already said I’ve done![/li][/ul]
