"Orin" said ...The old installation worked for me to, but upon a reinstall of Gmod, the new path will be Steam\SteamApps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod It went fairly painless. A few model issues got fixed, others broken. But more or less the same.
i know this topic is a little old, but my gmod installation is still the same. been having a bit of trouble rendering icons for certain legacy addons but other than that no trouble. i was just curious, wondering if maybe the install directory was the root cause. because mine is \Steam\SteamApps\username\garrysmod\garrysmod i dont know if that is a bad thing or not.

Yes, I know this is an uber necro-post, but there are so few topics here, I figured it would be nice to keep the list short. That, and the title applies. This morning, when I went to launch Garrys Mod, it loaded way quicker than usual. The usual 10-20 second hang after the main menu loads was gone as well. So were a random assortment of my mods. Some new ones were still there, but the majority were not. Upon restarting, I noticed that about half of my Steam Workshop mods were missing, most importantly, the Extended Spawnmenu addon. I'm assuming that is the root of all my issues today. Is this a known bug or just me?
