m0r3 gmod beta

I’ve been plodding away at the beta over the last few couple of days. I’m hoping to initiate the switch over next week.

People running servers should make themselves familiar with this page.. because once we switch over this will be the only way to update and run dedicated servers.

The Linux version has progressed. I am able to get to the menu now – but it quits when I try to join a game. That might be because I’m running it in a virtual machine though – let me know if you’re having more luck.

The rift support (apparently) doesn’t work at all. I think I need to compile my own rift head tracking dll – because the one Valve provide is (apparently) crashing. They haven’t given me access to the head tracking code – so I don’t know what’s happening there.

It’s been a lot of fun pushing updates out via Steam Pipe. It means I can say to people “hang on – try now” – and they try and stuff is fixed. Instead of “try after the next update in 2 weeks”.

  1. You need to install lib32-gconf from the AUR (or at least that fixed this issue for me). It does have many dependencies, so installation will take a while.

  2. Thank you very much, this worked perfectly. I wonder if it was that exactly or one (or more) of it’s pre-requisites. Regardless, it works and I’m glad.

  3. it works on my debian7 amd64! thank you so much garry!
    i just needed to install ia32-libs-gtk.

  4. ok, i thought that the game would automatically appear on my linux games list (even if I was not opted in).
    However the game works now. Filesystem addons work (like wiremod), and workshop addons work.
    But if I select amount of player on the menu point start game (instead of singleplayer), then the game freezes.
    (And the balloon tool doesn’t work :D)

  5. Using Ubuntu 13.04. For some reason, I got an error, failing to load library client. After I went offline, it began to work, and now works online. Can’t very well test multiplayer, since the Legacy Browser doesn’t like me and I don’t think anyone runs Beta build servers. Only thing that seems broken so far is that hint icons and a few item spawn icons are the odd purple/black squares, but addons seem to work very well.
    Something odd is that my PS3 controller acts as an XBox 360 controller: Keybindings get bound to A,B,X,Y, LB, RB, LT, RT, rather than Cross, Circle, Triangle, Square, R1, R2, L1, L2. Functions perfectly, but still seems odd.

  6. Agh… was going back to play, stupidly of me I thought that reinstalling the whole thing would work. Anyone got any advise?

  7. You can fix some errors by copying the contents of the folder “VGUI” to “vgui”. That’s all.

  8. I cannot seem to mount my source games into Garry’s Mod even if I own the game. Is this a problem with Steam Pipe?

  9. The game crashes for me just at the blue loading screen right after I start the game. I’m on ubuntu 12.04 with the xorg-edgers PPA. CS:S and Half-Life Deathmatch work fine.

  10. Garry I Need You To Give Me Gmod (Garry’s Mod) 10 Because However Much I Try It Doesn’t Work My Steam Username Is DaCuddleDerp Just Send It As A Gift Since I Love Your Game Garry’s Mod
