Can't see any materials or fading doors.
« on: March 12, 2015, 04:11 pm »
Basically in game I cannot see any materials from color mator or materials on props etc, even if I spawn a prop and try to put a material on it nothing happens. However I can change the colour of the prop and also change its visibility. When i put a material on a prop other players can see that material except me.

Another problem is fading doors, if a door is faded it appears to not be faded but I can walk through it..

I've spoken to in game admins such as Bouchedag and Expanded Foreskin they told me to reinstall CSS, HL2 etc and verify game cach. These solutions did not work, i'm starting to get very frustrated with this bug as it is ruining my gaming experience. I have just recently started playing Gmod/byb again after a year or two break all was fine until yesterday when the materials stopped working.

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I can fix this?

Thanks,

I added a screenshot, But I've found a fix!!

For anyone who has the same issue this worked for me,
right click gmod click properties, set launch options and enter -dxlevel 101
then start up gmod.

You can also reset the settings in your registry, part of it is that it defaults to the level stored in there and for some reason it will not update when you change it in game
