« on: March 07, 2013, 02:36 am »
The server And your GMod might have lag and that is why you came here.

How To Stop Gmod lag
1 go into steam
2 right click on game and click options and go to local files and "very integerity of game cache" or whatever and "defrag cache files"
3 Clean your hard-drive run a virus scan and registry cleanup than defrag your hard-drive
4 remove unused programs (before defrag)
5 close out of EVERYTHING

How to help the server stop lag
1 do not use too many props
2 do not keep welded bases on the map
3 do not PROPSPAM!
4 lets hope the root admins and Pantho CLEAR the server's log file
5 be efficient. sometimes 1 prop can replace many props

These tips are just basic. most of you know them but this small thrown-together guide is for the people who are having some trouble.

This is only good for Latency lag and not FPS lag, unless you have a very very smegty computer.

Gmod does not need that great of a computer. i can run it on high with my standard issue "COMPAQ Presraio" not the most high-end laptop but it is ok. I can run Fallout in medium :D

My computer is smegty at best, I can run Fallout 3 (I'm assuming you mean that) in ultra low with tweaked settings with a 20 FPS. I have no problem running Garry's Mod on high. That's why I said "VERY VERY". Also having a lot of addons also affects your multiplayer game. So don't have that.
