GMod Update 160

👤 🕔 April 5, 2013 42

Hey guys – I sent an update to valve. There’s a lot of internal changes here that might bite us in the ass in many different ways. We’ve spent quite a bit of testing but still… cross your fingers!

Here’s the changes:

New balloon models

There’s a couple of new balloon models available by default now! Enjoy!

Player model updates

The HL2 citizen player models were drastically enhanced, and Odessa is now colourable. The player models will now transition between animation states more smoothly, sitting animations have been improved, idle sequences (standing still) are much more varied, and other various things that looked odd or didn’t work were fixed.

Fixed infinite loop when spawning entities

If your GMod was freezing up when trying to spawn some entities – you were getting the infinite loop bug. This is now fixed!

Fixed cheating with crouch

There was a bug with crouching where you could crouch, uncrouch and then crouch again while you were still uncrouching – and your view would stay in place. This was being exploited by people to shoot over boxes while being fully ducked behind them.

Fixed Coroutines

One for the coders.. coroutines should now work flawlessly! Now you just need to find a use for them!

Added Nextbot stuff

Another one for the coders. I exposed a lot of nextbot stuff. This means that we can code better AI. I’m not done with this yet but it should be safe enough to start using it.

SteamPipe Mounting

Valve are switching all their games over to Steam Pipe. This affects us because we like to mount their games. Don’t worry though – I have updated the mounting stuff so it’ll mount games using SteamPipe now too! This includes games like CS:GO and Left 4 Dead!

Fixed Lua errors when saving

Some people were getting Lua errors when creating a save via the spawn menu. This should be fixed now – it was my fault! Sorry guys!

Fixed fastdl downloads

Server owners were having trouble with fastdl downloads. They didn’t download properly if they were compressed. This is also my fault – and should now be fixed!

Fixed duplicate props when loading a save

Sometimes when you loaded a save the props would get duplicated because it was restoring them first, then creating the saved version. This code was all a bit sticky. So I nuked the lot so it will delete all the props on the map and restore them from the save versions.

Lua performance fixes

I added a few small optimizations to improve the performance of Lua. A lot of the slowdown in Lua is when it has to call back to c. So I try to avoid that in a few common places. I make CurTime, RealTime and FrameTime all Lua functions – which don’t call into c in any way. The entity meta tables are also done in Lua now too.

    Hey Garry, I’m having a problem starting up Gmod. Whenever I try to “Play” Gmod It starts up in the blue screen with the small loading icon on the bottom but it stays there and whenever I go off the window theres a Steam Error Window saying “No Steam User” or something like that with a couple of suggestions. Im on a Mac and I’ve played Gmod for a while now and this is the first time that it has happened. I think it was the update because I’ve tried re-installing EVERYTHING and restarting steam nd my mac and all that and its not working. I’d appreciate if you could fix this. Thank you.
