>> No. 2041

Go into console, set jpeg quality to 100

or use sdof and make sure you render it before taking a pic, if that doesn't fix it then I don't know what's wrong
>> No. 2042
Never got a clear answer on this: After Steam installs Gmod, it seems to list other previously uninstalled games in the Library as installing soon after.

Are all of the games ACTUALLY installing, or just the files referenced by Gmod? I don't mind having TF2 install, but I'd rather not fill up my harddrive with HL2, Counterstrike, and the like.

I need some help with the naked models. I downloaded them and it says it has one where they have none of their gear or those armbands on but I cant get them off. Anyone know what to do?
>> No. 2044

If you have bodygroup changer, mess around with the bodygroup value and it should work

if you don't have bodygroup changer, get it, it should be available on gmod dot org

I don't understand why my Gmod keeps telling me I've reached the ragdoll limit when I try to spawn new ragdolls. Is there anyway to fix that?
>> No. 2050

Do you have other ragdolls in the map? check around and make sure you remove any extras you don't need.

on another note, anyone know the command for taking a tga picture? you type it in console and bind it to a key, I forgot it

Okay, so. I have worked in Faceposer to make a .vcd so that a properly lipsynced sound clip plays. It works in TF2 (using tf_testvcd).
Is there a was I can get this to work in Gmod? I tried testing it with NPC Scene on some of the HL NPCs but it does nothing. (The HL NPCs will say default TF2 stuff with proper lipsyncing though)
>> No. 2053
Alright, I'm trying to skin the blu spy for a video I am making, but I have no idea how to put it on the tf2 spy ragdoll.
Where does it go? I am reskinning spy_blue, spy_blue_head, and spy_blue_head_invun
>> No. 2054
Okay guys, where do I get tf2 blood as a paint?
>> No. 2055
I think it defaults to TF2 blood on TF2 ragdolls, or if you are on a tf2 map.

Failing that, you must get the blood texture from TF2 and replace the hl2 one in the Gmod folder.

I always extract all TF2 textures to my Gmod folder when making TF2 stuff, since it fixes all the incorrect textures. Can't have the blu base made of grotty HL2 concrete ;)

From what I can gather on the steam forums it looks like a problem with the map creator putting too many rendering models on the map and/or clustered together.

>> No. 2073
so what exactly is a hex? gmod newbie here
>> No. 2074
a hex is something that doesn't replace the original skin/model. for example. An original L4D Zoey model. You want reskins but don't want to replace the original model. so if a model is hexed, it means it doesnt replace the original.
>> No. 2075

Hi - does anyone know how to remove the cigarette from Spy's mouth?
Is there a hexed model I could download of non-cigarette Spy?
I've looked all over but kept getting the response of 'Use the bodychanger tool'; All I can use is the 'ent_fire !picker setbodygroup' command, and all that does is switch between regular spy and spy with paper mask on.

Just play around with the options some more. I had the same problem until I set the top option on 1, then the bottom on 1, then tried the bottom on 2, then 3 etc. When you've tried the bottom numbers then you move the top option to 2 then move up the other scale again. Eventually you'll find the right combinations that remove things. If I were you I'd write them down.

So a while ago I downloaded a mask-less Spy skin, and must have deleted the regular Spy skin. Can anyone send me those files, or tell me where I can get them?
>> No. 2091
if you install it to gmod the same way you do to tf2, then it will do the same thing as it does in tf2: replace the original spy.

what you need to do is remove the files you put in and go find yourself a hex like this:

>> No. 2092

Yes, I know that. The thing is, I could have sworn I saved the files that would return Spy back to normal, but they have been deleted. I need the original Spy files, could you please tell me where I can get them? I'm sorry that wasn't clear in my first post.

The dude who made that forgot to include an info.txt for it, so if you want to get it to work you just gotta make your own. Here's what mine looks like:

"name""Sniper Hat and Medic Glasses"
"info""Sniper Hat and Medic Glasses"

So yeah. Just open up notepad, paste that in there, and save it as info.txt. Then put info.txt into the 'TF2 Sniper hat and Medic glasses props' folder, then put that folder into gmod's addons folder. In the game the folder should show up in the browse tab.

I'm bad at explaining shit so hopefully this picture helps.

Alternately, ignore all that and drop+combine the \materials and \models folder into your main username\garrysmod\garrysmod folder.

I just got gmod on mac, and I can't figure out how to install and use custom models (such as the hexed female pyro). I've looked online, some places say just copy and paste the materials and models folders into the garrysmod folder, some say to put them in addons. I've tried both, but the models don't appear in game under props. What am i doing wrong? Any ideas? Thanks

>> No. 2132
What physics fix are you using? Because your physics fix should affect all ragdolls, including HMW ones.


Find 'nexuselite' under wither 'All' or 'Garry's Mod' when you're browsing. Expand that and the folder with the Meet the Sniper stuff is there.
>> No. 2133
Looked for that. Looked through every folder, and so far cannot find it.
>> No. 2134

Hmm. Well try this. Go to your GMod folder, go into settings, and then spawnlist.

Open Notepad and copy this into it:

"name""Meet the Sniper"
"11""models/nexuselite/meetthesniper/sniper mug.mdl"
"12""models/nexuselite/meetthesniper/sniper sign.mdl"

Save it with whatever name you want it to come up as and put the notepad file into your Gmod spawnlist folder.

Hopefully that'll work and you'll have the Meet the Sniper stuff without digging around for it. If that doesn't work though, maybe redownload and try to reinstall. I don't know if they're those types of props that will only show up if you drag the materials and models into your gmod folder and merge them, rather then just dropping it into addons.
>> No. 2135
Okay, now the files show up there, but as nothing but giant red ERRORs.

We're getting closer. I can FEEL it.
>> No. 2136

Hmm... Where did you install the pack? Did you install it in addons? Did you try dragging the contents of the zip just into the Gmod and merging it with you models and materials folders?

Sometimes that's the only way to get some props and ragdolls working in Gmod, I've discovered. That's the only other thing I can think of..

Also sorry for the late reply, I was at Anime Boston and had a pretty busy week after that.
>> No. 2137

Thank you for all your help! Putting it in with the other Materials folder made everything pop up just right.

anyone have this problem when using HAT, and how do you fix it?

{trying to recreate Paul Simon's "Call Me Al" video]
>> No. 2140
Glad to help!

Did you just start the animation? Because HAT leaves a 'shadow' so you can keep track of where something has been to help you keep your animation from looking too jarring.

Also I saw you post that you didn't know the basics of skins and adding and removing items from models?

For those things you'll need

Skin Switcher: http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=76939 (I think this is the right one I'm not entirely sure)

Bodygroup Changer (for removing items): http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=125861

And the BoneMerger Tool (for attaching them): http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=126298

Also I'd try to suggest avoiding props from Half-Life and other games whose style is so jarring from TF2. A great game that's props are close enough to TF2 to not be jarring, in my opinion, is The Ship. But I also know you gotta use what you have.
>> No. 2141

thanks for the links

i have animated before, but the skin usually went away, but for this pic, the shadow still stayed during the animation process or kept vibrating.
>> No. 2142
also, i have body group changer but how do i add skins and where can i find some?
>> No. 2143
What do you mean exactly by adding skins?
>> No. 2144

like lets say you download a skin from gamebanana, where would you put it? in addons?

im still a gmod newb so i want to try some skins for my dolls.
>> No. 2145

I think I see what you mean. But I think gamebanana is just skins usually used in game to replace your player model for you. In gmod you would need a new ragdoll and if you take what's on gamebanana it will replace the default of whatever class you have.

What you would need, if I'm understanding you, is hexed ragdolls. In that case you would have to put them in addons OR drag and drop the materials and models folders into your gmod folders. Dropping them in addons doesn't always work, but that does.
>> No. 2146
Okay now I need some help of my own.

There are certain class items in Gmod which, in TF2, have different skins for RED and BLU but in Gmod it says they only have one skin. Like the Chargin' Targe.

Is there some roundabout way to change the skin in Gmod that I don't know? Because all I know using the Skin Switcher doesn't work.
>> No. 2147
How do I pose?

I mean, I know the basics, but is there an easier way to make arms and stuff be in the position I want them? And faces, and hands, etc. It just takes so long to pose anything, and it always comes out looking blocky and wrong.
>> No. 2148
Have you downloaded a better phys pack than the ones that are with TF2 by default?

http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=122453 this tool pack contains an advanced weight tool that can change the weight of different parts of ragdolls if they're being troublesome.

Have you posted anything up on here? I think I might be able to give some better suggestions if I see what you're talking about.
>> No. 2150
Not really TF2 related but,

I'm trying to get some addons to work in gmod. The textures work fine, but the models don't (they turn into red errors). I Extracted the files into the addon folder in gmod, I verified gmod through steam.. the textures that were missing work, but not the models. I have no idea why. Suggestions?

I'm having troubles with the shirtless and nude models.

In return for help I might do some sort of request, but I'm no Garry's Mod expert and I also have school to think about so no promises.
