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.

February 2016 Update #2

👤 🕔 February 22, 2016 81

An update has been released!

This update fixes a few long-standing bugs and adds new functionality for developers.

As usual, servers will need to be updated.
The update will be automatically downloaded when you restart your game.

If you are having issues related to models/materials/sounds, make sure that you do not have any illegitimate content packs installed for games you do not own, such as Counter-Strike: Source.

Thanks to everybody who helped with testing the update and reported bugs/problems.

Game Changes

  • NEW Added game.MountGMA( path )
  • NEW Added File:ReadLine()
  • NEW Anti-Cheat ConVars: sv_maxusrcmdprocessticks, sv_maxusrcmdprocessticks_holdaim, sv_maxusrcmdprocessticks_warning
  • NEW Crazy physics ConVars: sv_crazyphysics_defuse, sv_crazyphysics_remove, sv_crazyphysics_warning
  • NEW Hibernation ConVars: sv_hibernate_think & sv_hibernate_drop_bots
  • FIX NextBots no longer simulate faster than normal players
  • FIX Turrets’ sounds are now cleaned up properly on removal
  • FIX AvatarImage panels no longer leak memory when removed
  • FIX Toggling vehicle third-person is no longer wrongly predicted
  • FIX CTriggerCamera entities no longer crash the game in multiplayer
  • FIX Entity:SetSubMaterial() now works on bonemerged entities
  • FIX Fixed sub-material overrides affecting the first rendered entity in certain hooks such as PostPlayerDraw
  • FIX Entity:SetBoneMatrix() and Entity:GetBoneMatrix() no longer crash when given bad input
  • FIX ConVars created with CreateConVar() and CreateClientConVar() now have their default value set and do not leak memory
  • FIX Panel:SetPaintedManually() and Panel:PaintManual() now function correctly
  • FIX VMatrix divisions no longer crash when given non-userdata input
  • UPD Maps now prioritise content from their own game, this means that TF2 and Half-Life 2 maps load the correct content (postponed to future update)
  • UPD Left 4 Dead 2’s DLC content is now mounted
  • UPD Anti-Speedhack improvements
  • UPD Windows SRCDS console now outputs text with UTF-8 encoding
  • UPD Crazy physics catching system has been improved, making it difficult to crash servers with physics quirks

  • UPD Players are now simulated even when they are not sending any data to the server
  • UPD Flagged some potentially abusable console commands as cheats
  • UPD include() now passes returned values from the loaded file
  • DEL Removed ConVars: sv_voicecodec, sv_max_usercmd_future_ticks, sv_removecrazyphysics

    Please fix the searching in Garry’s Mod for Mac. When I type something, even though I get the specific results, I cannot delete the words I searched and they get stuck. When I scan over the words and delete them, then the search is just empty and I have to refresh the screen again.

    This is a really easy bug, please fix it.

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

    February 22, 2016 at 5:33 pm

    Your stupid update has DESTROYED the game.
    Loading times are so much longer, all the sounds are screwed up, and there’s most likely a lot more problems that I haven’t seen yet.

  14. DavidLongford1

    everything is messed up. HUD is messed up, sounds are messed up, loading times are worse. REVERSE THESE CHANGES

    Okay,,, Just put this on my server and now it crashes whenever the Nextbot NPCs spawn on the map. This happened last update too and it took forever to find out what was causing it and then find a workaround. Great, now I have to do it again.
    Like, at first I just figured it was my fault, but this is the second time in a row this has happened. If something works fine, it shouldn’t magically break like this with an update. Something’s gotta give.

    The game became terribly slow when connecting to the server, wait 3 minutes, then begins a connection or disconnection from the server, what did you do then?

  32. Vertex
    February 22, 2016 at 9:30 pm

    How about separating awesomium from the game process on Linux; so, the web browser cannot crash the game client? Or maybe fixing that Windows issue where a helper process stays running on exit and the task has to be killed; otherwise steam thinks the game is still running.

  33. Common Sense
    February 22, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    Having problems with sounds? Instead of pirating content, try BUYING it instead. Not that hard.

      The problem with gmod… YOU NEED TO SPEND MORE MONEY JUST SO YOU COULD GET A COUPLE OF ADDONS TO WORK! YOU HAVE TO SPEND PROBABLY MORE THAN 100$ JUST TO DO SO! AND SOME OF US here (especially in places where Dollars are worth alot there like philppines 100$ could be equivalent to alot of cash there! 1$ = 45php

  34. Drewerth
    February 22, 2016 at 10:23 pm

    Multiple issues with many of our Garry’s Mod servers including things such as the HUD being completely fucked over. My sounds are broken as well but I have all legitimate content installed (CS:S, TF2, DoD:S)

  35. gusheadcrab
    February 22, 2016 at 10:34 pm

    For all you guys that have HUD, sounds, etc. broken: THIS UPDATE BROKE THE CSS CONTENT ADDON. Resolve this by: buying the game or waiting for a fix

  36. Drewerth
    February 22, 2016 at 10:40 pm

    I don’t use the CSS Content Addon and have Counter-Strike: Source legitimately. When I say HUD, I mean HUD as in things created with Lua.

    I have the game too and it resolved the problem, since before that I had the addon.

  39. RockRage
    February 22, 2016 at 11:08 pm

    My only real issue with this update is that whenever I try to disconnect from a session or quit GMod altogether while I’m in a game session, my game hangs on me and I have to close out with the Task Manager, and that isn’t excusable. I wish for this to be fixed to prevent damage to my and others systems.

  40. RockRage
    February 22, 2016 at 11:23 pm

    Nevermind, its just my crummy laptop being slow on me. However, I still recommend looking into it just in case as it takes longer to close out.

Please could you fix this cac is the main reason there are no hackers anymore (there are still cac bypasses) VAC is shit when will it be updated ffs?

    Good update. But has too many glitches and bugs. .-.

    Т.к. мои знания инглиша скудны – скажу на русском .-.
    Быть точнее предложу. Выпускать капитальные обновы.
    А не на 15мб (Да, да. Знаю сколько кода влазит в эти 15мб…)
    Ну. И…
    Функция util.GetModelInfo(“Путь до модели”).KeyValues вернет строку.
    Что не есть круто. А писать регулярку – не есть круто.

    Хочется более сочных обнов .-.
    Попробовал на вкус game.MountGMA() – понравилось .-.

    Did this update also break the EP2 content addon? (I own CS:S, but not EP2)

    And if so, can I just mount it through the cfg folder? Heard that works for the CS:S content, so I was just wondering.

    Asking only because I want everything to work offline. I don’t play online.
