[Guide] Installation of Wiremod - The Correct Way

Guide - Installation of Wiremod - The Correct Way


Introduction:

Hello and welcome to this guide! Many are confused, or don't know how to install Wiremod correctly. Simply, sometimes many don't know which one to download and how to install them. I'm going to solve all those issues in this guide. In this guide, I'll be showing you two ways you could possibly install Wiremod with clear steps and with pictures - for those who find it better to see the tutorial visually. I will be excluding the Git way of downloading Wiremod and the Workshop way. (The workshop one does tend to get removed due to Steam copyrights and other things.) Please do note, if you have tried to install Wiremod before and didn't get it to work, please consider removing Wiremod and clear your cache folder. (Cache folder location: \Steam\SteamApps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\cache)



Installation:

Installation #1 | ZIP Download
Spoiler
Please do note that if you download the ZIP file, you will have to download the entire Wiremod addon AGAIN and install it AGAIN if there is an update.

  • Head over here and download the .zip file.
  • Once you have downloaded the .zip file, locate it and open it. You should see something like this:
  • Copy and paste the folder named "wire-master" into your Garry's Mod addons folder. (Addons folder location: \Steam\SteamApps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\addons)
  • Open up Garry's Mod and you should have Wiremod now installed! If Wiremod is not working, please post a reply at the bottom with why it is not working.



Installation #2 | SVN Download
Spoiler
Please do note, if you decide to use the SVN route, you'll have to download a program. Steps will be included on how to gain the program. If you use the SVN route, you won't have to update Wiremod manually. It will update automatically for you.

  • Head to this website and download TortoiseSVN. Remember to download the correct one for your Windows (64bit or 32bit) . Once you have downloaded it, open up the file and go through the installation process of the program.
  • Now that SVN is installed, head to your Garry's Mod addons folder. (Addons folder location: \Steam\SteamApps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\addons)
  • Once you are in your addons folder, make a new folder and name it "Wiremod" .
  • Now that the folder is there, right click the folder and you should have the option to click "SVN Checkout" .
  • If you clicked on the SVN Checkout option, a new window should appear. If the window has appeared, copy this url:    https://github.com/wiremod/wire/trunk      and paste it where it says "URL of repository:" . Once you have pasted it in the box, go ahead and press the OK button at the bottom.
  • A new window should appear and it should start downloading.
    When it is done downloading you will be able to press OK .
  • Once you pressed OK, you should have a folder like so in your addons folder. If the folder is like so then you have installed Wiremod and you may open up Garry's Mod and play Garry's Mod. If Wiremod is not working then please reply with your reason on why it is not working.



I hope this has cleared up some confusion and helped you guys install Wiremod. As said before, if you have any problems with Wiremod (textures etc.) then please post a reply with your reason. Thanks for reading this guide!

I'm enjoying your banjo very much. Already smacked a kangaroo with it!

I may return it next week, in whatever condition I want. (So don't get too excited to see it again)
