Sending for help from the void (Black Screen) FIXED

Postby MrSmiles » Sat Oct 21, 2017 11:55 pm

The gods are not happy with me, every time I attempt to join a server it will throw me into a black screen where I can do nothing except spam Ctrl Alt Delete and hope I hit sign out. I have tested this on a couple of servers repeatedly today.

I have had this happen to me before in the past but it has been a while at this point and I can't recall.

Any hidden tips just like the 'fixchatplz' command any of you can spare?

-(Update) - In Windowed, it just closes itself with no black screen nor Error Message.
- (U2) - I have removed all Content from the folders and unsubscribed from everything. Then only have this servers content to have it crash on me again. This time I was in full screen, but it did not give me a full black screen.
- (U3) - Was TF2, had to uncheck it from Gmod. Have not tried the addon since removing it did the trick though I downloaded it just for safe keepings.

Reinstall Gmod and server content, use windowed. If not verify your files

Do you have TF2? If so, unmount it and see if that works.

Addon Work Around

Apparently with the new TF2 update it goofed up something in the files. This addon apparently fixes that.
