Garry's Mod
A sandbox game for the PC, Mac and Linux

Garry's Mod is a Sandbox Game based around the idea of building. Unlike most other games there aren't any objectives - you can't lose and you definitely can't win.

Client.dll Error

👤 🕔 October 14, 2011 17

I’m aware that Garry’s Mod is currently broken – I’m looking into it right now. This isn’t something you can fix yourself – so sit tight and I’ll have a patch ready as soon as possible!


Just merging the code now. I don’t envisage any huge problems with this process – so it should be smooth sailing.

You can follow me on twitter if you want to follow the status more closely.


All fixed!


I’m aware of the problems with the current patch (tf2 map crashes, file.* function changes). I’m aiming to fix those in a patch – but it’s likely to be released on Monday.

    I have Gmod completely up to date, but it still says that I don’t have the client.dll file.

    Also, any time I try to run Gmod, it does another update.
