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.

October 2016 Update #2

👤 🕔 October 28, 2016 56

A new update has been released!

This update is optional. However, I’d recommend that you update any servers you are running.
Clients will automatically update via Steam when the game is restarted.

  • NEW Added “Fetching Subscriptions” progress window to the main menu
  • NEW Added boolean parameter to render.RedownloadAllLightmaps to apply lighting changes to static props
  • UPD Holding attack whilst opening the weapon selection dialog no longer instantly changes weapon
  • UPD Adjusted HL2 weapons’ idle times to match sv_defaultdeployspeed ConVar
  • UPD Deploy animation of the fists SWEP now obeys the sv_defaultdeployspeed ConVar
  • UPD Automatically named procedural texture names (__vgui_texture_XXX) are now recycled to help avoid “CUtlRBTree overflow!” engine error
  • UPD Removed the unnecessary check for whether the user owns Source SDK Base 2006
  • FIX Player shadows no longer get clipped within the players’ render bounds
  • FIX Inactive weapons’ shadows are no longer drawn in 3rd-person mode
  • FIX AvatarImage panels’ fallback image no longer (sometimes) renders at the incorrect size
  • FIX Numeric values inside DComboBox are now sorted properly
  • FIX Using the light tool on the world will no longer cause errors
  • FIX Fixed an issue preventing addons adding custom spawnlists with spawnmenu.AddPropCategory, even though they really shouldn’t be allowed
  • FIX Fixed mounting of gamemodes/*/content for gamemodes inside GMAs
  • FIX Fixed PreCleanupMap hook not being called on client
  • FIX Fixed a crash related to rendering many ropes in a single frame
  • FIX Fixed massive FPS loss when Entity.Set(Sub)Material is used with unloaded materials
  • FIX Fixed compression artifacts that were on the gui/corner… materials
  • DEL render.RedownloadAllLightmaps defaults to old behavior (The original change was slow and caused issues on large maps)
  • DEL Undone EffectData() changes from the latest update (until we find a way not to break ShellEject effects)

      Do you have TeamSpeak and Overwolf installed by any chance, if so that may be the case, uninstall Overwolf and see if it fixes it, I’ve had a similar problem

    People have been reporting of a .bat file after this update. A FactoryReset.bat file to be specific. Have any idea what this unusual looking file could be?

    • JonasLue
      November 11, 2016 at 6:03 am

      Yes, i’ve looked into it and it first of all checks if the hl2.exe exists (To prevent running it in a wrong folder), kills any running instances of Gmod (hl2.exe to be specific) and then deletes all user and settings related folders and files in the folder it is in and where the hl2.exe is lying (Basically, in the GMod root folder) and then runs “hl2.exe – factoryresetstuff” which, like it is written there, launches GMod and tells it to download all deleted and now missing files. Nothing dangerous, just what it says, it resets Garrys Mod to the factory state.

    I don’t know if anyone else is having this issue, but when using a local or peer-to-peer server, a small white box appeares in the top left hand corner, and the whole spawnlist has dissapeared. The only things that you can still do are spawn entities and NPC’s or use weapons. Could you take a look at this bug? As I mostly play on a local server with my friend, and this ruins it.
