Weird npc animations

Well here’s the problem. Every NPC I spawn moves like they’re stop-motion dolls. Is there a known solution to this?

has it always been like that?

I think I know what you’re talking about.

  1. Are you sure it’s an NPC or is it a ragdoll?
  2. Does it just fall to the ground and fall over like a statue?
  3. Did it come with HL2 or did you download it?

I ask you these because I had a ragdoll model which fell down like a statue (it didn’t have an NPC) and I downloaded it.

If it’s like that, then you’re missing some sort of content, and for that reason it’s treating the ragdoll/NPC like a prop. At least, that’s what happened to me.

Well of course it’s a bunch of npc’s. It’s those that are already in garry’s mod if you have hl2.
