Crystal Load is a modern loading screen for Garry's Mod which is easy to edit and customise but also looks great. It displays the users avatar, steam name, server name, server game mode and server map name.
There is also a loading bar which shows current overall file download progress so that users know how many files that are left to download based on how far the bar has filled up.
Crystal Load is available in 10 different colours and is easy to customise from everything to the backgrounds, rules and even adding in audio. Adding music is as simple as dragging an file into a folder, it's that easy! The rest is automatically done for you. If you add in multiple audio files then it'll randomly select one to play.
The rules list can also be changed to a text box so you can add details about your community instead of having a rules list.
All of the HTML Code has been commented so as to make it easier for you to see what does what and so you can be confident that you are editing the right thing.
Adding music is now even easier, all you do is add your .OGG files into a folder and the rest is automatically sorted out for you. If you add in multiple .OGG files then the loading screen will randomly select one to play.

Unfortunately due to the nature of this content being digital and also being distributed digitally I am unable to offer refunds.
This loading screen has special requirements to be able to work correctly. The instructions will help you but it is vital that when you set the loading url that you add: ?steamid=%s to the end of the url. If you get stuck then simply get in contact with me and I will be able to help you out.
Please also note that sometimes Garry's Mod has a tendency to mess up when telling the loading screen how many files there are to download and that sometimes the progress bar and percentage display will not work but the current file being download will be displayed.
