#1zerooo0Posted 8/5/2014 11:57:29 PM
Some maps work just fine, but a lot of the I get error meessages, and the whole map is just purple'ed out and all psychedelic like and I don't see any on my team moving or anyone on the enemy team. Any idea how to fix this?

You're missing content. In other words, the maps are using meshes and textures from Source games you haven't bought and/or downloaded.

Sounds like you don't have all of the assets for that map.
They should either get downloaded when you join a server, or you may need to buy one of the other Source games like HL2, CS:Source etc.

Alright I figured that I should have got the Counter Strike game that it recommended, and if I get most of Valve games will that fix the issues?

The Half-Life 2 collection and Counter-Strike Source should cover you well enough.

Unless something has changed over the years.

But this is Valve we're talking about...

Yes. You'll want at least HL2, Portal, TF2, and L4D2 on top of CS:S in order to get the most out of Garry's Mod.

I found just installing CS:Source was fine for me, after I installed it I didn't get any missing textures or error messages.
