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.

So yeah – we banned a lot of cheaters. If you are banned and are sure you didn’t cheat – email me at and I will look into it. Be sure to include your 64bit steam id.

      Hey Garry ever since this update i’ve been trying to update my game but it just won’t work. I don’t understand its been working for your other updates just not this one and I’m running out of options to fix it.

      Hey Garry, I don’t know if you’ve noticed but a lot of people are having a problem with a trojan virus,

      BitDefender said it had found a trojan in menusystem.dll
      The file C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/downloading/4000/garrysmod/bin/MenuSystem.dll has been detected as infected. Bitdefender could not clean this item. Your computer is not virus-free. Virus name: Gen:Trojan.Heur.LP.LH9aa4U0Fhii

      Date: 07 July 2013 02:43:41 PM

      i’ve tried starting gmod but it keeps telling me that there is an engine error:

      Couldn’t Load Library ‘menuesystem’ (looking for interface MenuSystem002)

      any advice on this would be awesome and if you have noticed (i expect that you have since the forums are packed with discussions about this problem), would it be possible to know if you’re working on an update for this.

      Thank you in advance,

      Hello, Garry. I have a problem that only occurs in single player. It will load up to “Initializing Game Data” then it will freeze if I have no addons, and crash if I do, though they both break the game. I have tried de-fragging, reinstalling, unsubscribing addons, lowering DirectX and then still didn’t work. I try this on Flatgrass and a lot of others, no luck. My CPU is
      AMD FX 8 Core Black Edition 8340. GPU is AMD Radeon HD 7970. 8 gigs of RAM. Is there a fix to this?

    July 5, 2013 at 11:01 am

    This is as bad as the steam pipe update where the servers kept client time out, bans should be left to the servers.

    • DannelorG
      July 5, 2013 at 11:23 am

      I know a few server owners who are going to come on tomorrow only to find out they can’t access there own servers that they pay for.

    • Garry Newman
      July 5, 2013 at 11:25 am

      We had this in the last round of bans. Server owners shouldn’t be using cheats to administrate their servers.

    • DannelorG
      July 5, 2013 at 11:30 am

      Literally all anyone on there that did use them was Bhop scripts.(Not even good ones at that) I would just prefer for servers to be able to control who can and can’t come on there servers.(Also on the terms did you mean “hack or modify Garry’s Mod” not “hack of modify Garry’s Mod”.)

    • Chay Hawk
      July 5, 2013 at 12:09 pm

      I agree, if a server owner wants to use cheats to administrate his server then that’s his\her business, I myself would never use cheats but even so they are PAYING for the server Garry, that’s not for you to decide what they do with it.

    • DannelorG
      July 5, 2013 at 12:13 pm

      Thank you chay hawk.
      I can not wrap my head around why it is so necessary for you to remove these types of cheats it is a freaking mod! I understand for things that can cause serious harm but why do we need a ban on players for using simple memory editors like abyss there is no sane reason for it, maybe figure out a way to kick you from a server if say a owner has it so they are not allowed since you can obviously trace them. I love gmod because it is a great game but please stop the unneeded additions like this.

    • DannelorG
      July 5, 2013 at 12:42 pm

      Could you atleast allow servers to be able to bypass your global ban if anything if say they want/ will allow that type of thing because they are competent enough to deal with such things as Bhoping, aimbots, or even walhacks!

    • Garry Newman
      July 5, 2013 at 12:44 pm

      No, sorry.

    • DannelorG
      July 5, 2013 at 12:51 pm

      What is the reason for not allowing it? Is it to easy to exploit something like that or what is the reason?

    • DannelorG
      July 5, 2013 at 1:05 pm

      I just can’t figure out a reason why these bans are necessary, and also maybe it would help to make the terms a bit more readily available as I haven’t been to the Gmod website in years and I can’t find it anywhere else.

    • DannelorG
      July 5, 2013 at 1:33 pm

      I had to have expected with such a great update of the workshop to come a pointless addition that causes more pain then good, as many in other games yes things like aimbots and such need to be removed because shooting is the entirety of the game, but unlike those Gmod has a much larger range of things that can allow for things like this in some situations but rather than allow people to handle it on their own you have decided for them. This is starting to sound alot like what is the big issue right now in the government and I censer-ally hope that this is not becoming something like that.

    • Ozy
      July 6, 2013 at 12:35 am

      You can change the steam.imf version date to today, I think the only real change is the workshop thing and the bans. So far my server has had no errors or kicks or crashes after I did this, still waiting on the update…

    • Dis (@agent766)
      July 20, 2013 at 2:23 pm

      It doesn’t ban for having it installed, it bans for editing Garry’s Mod’s memory which is against the ToS.

    I used Abyss for a bunnyhopping script on a friend’s server, and now I have just under 1700 hours down the drain.

    It’s obvious that Garry did this right before the 75% off sale in order to milk more money out of people who may or may not have been ruining the game for others. He isn’t giving admins a choice on whether to block banned users and is even apathetic about people who used bypassers/modules on their own servers. Considering the modifiable nature of Gmod, it seems that this is a thinly-veiled attempt to rip everyone off.

    I advise anyone else in a similar situation to not buy the game again; I certainly won’t be.

    • Garry Newman
      July 7, 2013 at 7:33 am

      If I banned people for money – why would I do a sale right afterwards?

    • DannelorG
      July 7, 2013 at 10:36 am

      Even putting aside the sale.
      Owners need to have a say in there servers, allow them to use the bans if they want, but please let them turn it off or add in a way of letting them allow select people they trust enough even if they have a global ban.

    • Max88
      July 7, 2013 at 2:39 pm

      To encourage people to buy the game again, of course. Garry’s Mod and the other games needed for many servers simply aren’t worth buying twice at full price simply to play one indie game. This has happened in the past and don’t think for one moment that people haven’t caught on.

      Your game relies on content generated by its users that is hosted on servers you don’t pay for, Garry. By dictating who can enter those servers and not caring about admins who object or have been banned themselves, you are alienating players and creating a poor image for yourself. While you don’t care right now because it is a relatively small portion of customers you are fucking over, this type of practice will eventually will catch up to you.

    • Dis (@agent766)
      July 20, 2013 at 2:32 pm

      He banned people that violated the ToS which state that you can’t use third party programs to edit the memory. I don’t see anything wrong with it.

    • Roger
      July 8, 2013 at 1:48 am

      why do you keep ignoring the 20 people on here asking why we cant update?

    July 7, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    By some reason, my anti-virus (F-Secure) says that Garry’s mod is a Trojan. Two files are included in there: Client.dll and MenuSystem.dll.
    Is it just my anti-virus, or has someone else experienced the same thing? Otherwise, is it someway to fix it other than turning it off?

  20. Don Ronson
    July 7, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    All hail Garry, saviour of Garry’s Mod. May the cheaters repent their sins and buy a new copy of the game to redeem themselves from their malignant acts.

    • DannelorG
      July 7, 2013 at 2:51 pm

      Because using a bypasser to bhop on some ones private server that they specifically tell you they are fine with it is worthy of having to re-buy the game.

  23. Sean Lijek
    July 8, 2013 at 12:05 am

    I can’t seem to look around when I log onto my friend’s server, and there’s no sound unless I uncheck the “no sound when window is in background” checkbox, which is odd because the window isn’t in the background, it’s actually full screen, and I can still move and shoot, I just can’t look.

    I’m using Linux, by the way. But my friend’s server is on Windows.

  24. Sean Lijek

    Hey Garry Newman I have this strange problem that I think many people have and I have tried to look everywhere for a solution but I come here because who can solve problems with Gmod better then the person who made it, right?

    The issue is when I start GMod it starts up and when it reaches the blue screen it just gets stuck trying to load and it did this for about 30 minutes and still no progress just says loading, it does not even display the facepunch symbol as usual.

    If you know what could possibly be causing the issue please explain I can’t wait to be back on! Or is there some kind of update you have to release first?
    -My OS is Windows 7, thought this info might help.

    Hey Garry I just recently purchased the program (v 13.07.05) and When I started it up i’m missing a lot of props and maps.On certain servers I can never join because a map is missing and when I do join a server i can not jump on anything,it seems there are invisible walls and huge ERRORs appear on my screen.Could you please help me out?

      Buy Counter Strike games especially Counter Strike Source. Thos will give you the textures and remove the errors.

    To everyone haveing loading time problems (Garry’s Mod take a long time to load up”, what you will want to do is go to the gmod directory and delete all the addons you have in the addons folder, then play garrys mod and while the addons re-download you will want to uninstall the ones you dont need, or the ones you think are taking up space, once you do this your gmod should load much faster. (Still having problems after this advice? please click on “Support” on the top of the “Garry’s Mod”‘ website)

      Ok I can fix that problem, but there will be a new problem. Right click on Garry’s Mod, go to properties, click on the BETAS tab, there should be a drop box that says select the beta you’d like to opt into: . Now it is preset to NONE – opt out of all beta programs switch it to Dev – development branch. now there will be a new problem the game will start but it wont load if you use a windows computer hit the button with the window on it on the bottom of your keyboard this will back you out and you will see an error message that says: A monitor program has been found running in your system. Please, unload it from memory and restart your program. Well, this part might just be a problem I have

    If this game doesn’t update it will be taken off of steam. And people don’t want that.

      August 15, 2013 at 9:26 am

      It will NOT be taken off steam, the game still works for 1000 of people still (or more) so it will never be taken of steam.

  66. Potential fix
    August 15, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    Alright, so what you want to do, this may not fix it for everyone, but you want to find the server using some external source. Once you have the IP, memorize it in some form. Launch a single player game. Then open the console and connect directly using the IP.

    For example: connect

    Holy cow would everyone give him a break all ready? I’m sure he’s doing the best he can with the problems you’re all facing, complaining won’t fix it and unless you can create a game better than Garry’s Mod and have it run perfect for 13.6 versions then shut up. Crying over spilt milk won’t clean it up. I’m certain that if you read the ToS before purchasing your game you would’ve realized cheating is NOT allowed. It’s not that hard, chill out too, so you can’t play your game for a few days, while you’re complaining Garry is working hard at solving these issues. Servers could be down and that’s why no addons or online services are working. As for updating your game, you have Google, use it, don’t complaining on Garry’s website. Thank you Garry, and I’m sorry

    Garry, so I heard alot of fantastic things about your mod especially in multiplayer games. Curious about this game, I decide to buy it. The Single Player is fantastic, and the collaboration of different games is amazing. However, I am unable to play the multiplayer due to the fact that no servers pop up in the white box of the server list. I’ve tried checking my firewall, reinstalling the game, and logging in and out of the game. Please fix this bug and ring this game to its full potential as told by others. Thank you for your time.

    • Z8MB1E
      September 8, 2013 at 6:01 am

      Well, Gerald, it may be a little inconvenient for you, but there is a way to bypass the organized list. See ‘LEGACY BROWSER’ down there? Click it and you should find an uncategorized list of servers. Hopefully this has dealt with your problem. For my Garry’s Mod game client everything works fine.

      the game wont give a virus but you can put too much mods into the game making the memory for the game big enough to simply crash the computer but you can also fix that by having your son delete old unused mods

    Hello Garry, I just recently downloaded Garrys Mod and have had the pleasure of playing some of it, (Though I need to get CSS for all the textures to work) Anyways, I’m trying to find a way to play with my friends… but I’ve been looking on using dedicated servers, then theres trying to make a certain gamemode work, etc. Is there not an easy way to play with your friends? Because if I can randomly join a game with random strangers why can’t my friend find a server that I make and put on?

    I’d like some sort of answer because honestly, I’m about to pull my hair out. I don’t think there is any other way for me to try.

    Hi Garry. I was on Garry’s Mod yesterday mucking around in single player spawning in a single WAC heli. When i go to undo the heli it crashed the game. So i went back on and went on the same map (flatgrass) and spawned in an SCar. Same thing happened, the game crashed as soon as i deleted it. Same with other addons that i have and i resorted to deleting most of my addons but it still didn’t work. Before the recent update, i was able to spawn in and undo my all my addons with no problems, and this is when i had my 4 pages of addons (now almost half that). Does this have something to do with the update? If or if not i would like to know soon on what i have to wait for or what i can do to fix it.

    how do you reload a game

  109. Nicholas LaRock
    August 17, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    Dear, Garry Newman.

    I have just found out about his update today, (8/17/2014 2:31PM U.S Eastern,) And my problem is with the update note quote- “Fixed crash when starting map.” First off, my question is, how did this bug work? Did the game crash when the loading bar was three bars till the map loaded; Or did the crash happen when clicking the “Start” button? I ask this because my client crashes when loading maps, I tried even loading default maps like gm_construct, and gm_flatgrass.

    These crashes have been happening at the map loading screen. When ever the progress bar is almost full, “three white vertical standing rectangles away from a full progress bar,” the game freezes for a few minutes. Then it closes, and when it closes, it doesn’t even give me a notification on what happened. It also seems that certain things that a addon occasionally creating script errors, are notified in the upper left corner of the loading screen, way early in the loading process. These occasional script errors usually a notified close to the map being fully loaded.

    Also, I haven’t received a update to Gmod 13 from steam yet. I’m going to try Gmod again now to see if Steam gives me a update. But so far I wasn’t even informed by Steam that Gmod was updating, updated, or was ready for a update. Please reply to me with some help, info, exc. You can contact me via email- -“not to get confused with the Nickelodeon kids TV network.”

    -Thanks, Nicholas Christopher LaRock

    -“The server you are trying to connect to is currently running an older version of the game.”

    I am currently aware that it is due to the servers currently being on an ungraded version of the current updated one. But my question is, Is there anyways that I can ungrade my current version to the one before?
