  • Hi there
on: 02-01-2012
So I have a pretty fresh re-install of Gmod since I havn't been on it in so long, I stuck on the content that is needed and the maps the servers are currently on. When I join the server it almost gets in but freezes and crashes to desktop.
Managed to get a pic of what happens just before it dies.

If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

EDIT: Now working, deleting VLC player stopped the crashes. Thanks to all those who helped!

If they're on, turn off anti-aliasing and bloom


Lowe your model quality and texture quality to medium or low.

I can get onto server 2, just that error appears on server 1. No idea why, that map works on singleplayer.

Try FRP server and CRP.

It may help determine something.

Also, check whats the info on those crashes.

I have decided to do a complete re-install on gmod since there could be a few random small files left in there from the last time I played like a year ago. Will post back with any results after that.

Thing is, it sounds like an issue I had that I didn't exactly solve.

Did you by chance make any major harware or software changes, since you last played?

Pretty much got a brand new PC except the hardrive (although steam is being run off an external).

EDIT: Nope, still no luck with a fresh install :S

Also, my specs if it helps:

Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 840 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.2GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GT 430

I had a similar, probably same issue.

I installed a new motherboard and processor. Had to reinstall Windows. Did that and ended up not being able to connect to SRP 1 or FRP.

I then basically after 5 months of trying to find the issue , just did a clean windows install.

I can play now.

Well I really don't want to re-install windows again, hopefully it will sort itself out or somebody will know a way to fix it but I don't think i'll be re-installing my whole OS just to get on the server unfortunately.

Well, like I said, I asked around on my other sites for tech and Half Life and no one figured it out.


It really does sound like the same issue I had.

If you can play CRP and SRP Server 2. But can not play on SRP Server 1 or FRP, due to crashing. Than you are gonna be out of luck.

And it looks like it crashes after joining, right at the black loading screen before the character menu. Same as I had.

Well, looking at temp lua files it looks as if its missing a couple of files there that are required (Hence the error in the screenshot) I'll see if I can find anything about this.

If you happen to have VLC media player, uninstall it.

I am installing it to find out.

Installed. Joined SRP and it worked just fine and there's only one fact worth mentioning -- that the player uses a Lua library. There's probably something wrong with the hardware, because it's very unlikely that Lua can conflict with itself in such indirect encounter, try running STALKER (which is purely Lua 5.1) and GMod at the same time and they won't conflict.

Update#2

I pretty much got it. The ActiveX plugin is causing the crashes. Why? I don't know nor am I going to bother looking for an answer. You can install VLC player just untick the plugins' section during the installation. My only thesis is that ActiveX's plugin is written in Lua, and both ActiveX and Lua are somehow connected with OpenAura and it's causing the client to crash.

Good to know, I have it on a USB stick anyway so i'll just use that if I ever need to.
Thanks for the research!

Yup, VLC's plugin conflicts and causes crash on all gmod servers with custom loading screen with music.

Glad i was able to help :3

Figures, I ask for help everywhere and here, no one knows an answer. And you come along less than a week later and get a fix instantly.




Fuck my luck.

It worked for me. Delete all of them/back them up.
