Crashing when opening console in game.
« on: September 27, 2015, 01:28 pm »
Okay, as the title suggests, I can't open my console when I'm in game. Period. In the main menu I can open and close my console.

I am (unfortunately) running Win 10, and not really planning on going back to 8.1.
This has never happened before until now (I mean, I was M.I.A for a few months). Don't know if it's my laptop, the OS or the game.

I think it's something with your game. I am running windows 10 as well and I have no problems with Garry's Mod or any other games I play. When in doubt just reinstall Garry's Mod.

I'm running Windows 10, had no problems (yet) with Garry's Mod. I can open the console, and do anything in Garry's Mod. It's definitely not the OS, more than likely your Garry's Mod. Reinstalling it, as BlueNova said, will more than likely fix your issue.

That, or validate the game files.

Validated/verified the thingy, now it's only on death.

Also, some prick did this when I joined a random ass server by accident.

If I were you Awesomesauce, I'd grab your E2's and dupes then wipe your garrysmod/garrysmod. You've probably got tons of smege installed on your Garry's Mod as it is.

Now I just crash when the NLR warning pops up and I try to open the console. it doesn't happen when I'm dead in single player. I'll do that though thanks.

Force launch gmod into a window and change your DirectX Level. Try changing your graphics settings in gmod settings while the game is launched. If that does not work, i will open up my computer and help you when i get home from work.

I had some sort of the same problem(I think), so I made a ticket at facepunch they told me this

Quote
Right click Gmod in your Steam Library,Press properties,
And then press "set launch options".

In the Gmod launch options, type:

+mat_dxlevel 95

Then press OK, start the game, and press the console key. This should fix the console crash
