Was trying to program some lua to see if I could invoke some Post Processing. I did not edit any existing scripts, just looking at garrysmod/lua/postprocess/color_modify.lua, looking at the example Gmod Wiki, and writing the script garrysmod/lua/edwards/coleffect.lua. Once I managed to get it to run (using lua_run_cl), I decided to add a little timer to shift the color effect over time and ran that quite a few times with various changes. I was satisfied. I then fiddled with the actual Post Processing tab, enabling and disabling and shifting values. Once I had my fun there I closed Gmod.
A little later I felt like testing TraceRes, using a single line in the console (PrintTable(eye trace)). But after running that a few times, all of a sudden I got “Something is causing script errors” and in the console there were a good number of blue and orange "[ERROR]"s. No other information. After a little while the game crashed. I felt, Ok, that’s enough of that.
A little later, I wanted to look a little at stools. Got a little distracted while looking for what I was looking for and thought I’d spawn the Sky Editor. When I was about to look at its properties, again I got “Something is causing script errors”. I payed it no mind, but as soon as I got the properties up, Gmod crashed again.
Thinking the Sky Editor was causing problems I decided to go ahead and look for that stool I was going to take a look at. Loaded Gmod, loaded SP game, waited, brought up the Spawn menu, and started looking. As I was looking through the categories, the message “Something is causing script errors” came again. I let go of the Spawn menu, pressed Esc to see what the error was, and Gmod crashed again. Never got to see the console log.
This time, I loaded Gmod and just waited on the main menu a while. Nothing happened. I typed into the console “developer 2”, “log_verbose_enable 1”, “log_verbose_interval 0.1”, “log on”, then loaded a SP game and counted the seconds. After about half a minute while in the game, the message “Something is causing script errors” came again, and just behind it a constant list of blue and orange "[ERROR]"s. I pressed Esc almost immediately, and Gmod crashed. I checked the logs and they were pretty empty. Ran through the steps and this time not touching anything once in game (log verbosity still at its “peek”). After half a minute came the “Something is causing script errors” message and "[ERROR]"s. 3 seconds after that Gmod crashed. I removed the addon folder, loaded Gmod again, and let it redownload my 85 addons. When that was done, I started a SP game, waited, and same thing happened.
How am I to find which script is causing the problem when, last I saw, there were blank "[ERROR]"s and I can’t read the console? Is there some other verbose level that I’m not familiar with? A 3rd party console grabber or hook? Thanks in advance.
