Starting yesterday, Gmod for some reason refuses to start up any more. Steam gave me a “Validating Steam Files” popup and after that is complete it appears Gmod does not automatically load as expected. I recently reinstalled Gmod about two-three weeks ago.
I thought it was a small glitch with Steam so I just restarted Steam but that didn’t work. Afterwards I assumed I just needed to wait a little longer for Gmod to start since it always took a while to load up anyway. No dice.
I’m just curious if this is a common problem or not and if it can be resolved without simply reinstalling Gmod (something I fear I may need to do now :).
*Just to be clear, this is occurs only for Gmod. No other Steam game goes through this!
Any help appreciated!
