Hey, This Is Gonna Be Harder Now Because We're Going To Enter A Folder World!

( Note This CMD Works Only With Source 1 Engine. You Can Use These For Another S1 Game Too! Like HL2. )

First Of All, Locate To Your Garry's Mod Folder And Follow This.

( note that you can copy these commands into Notepad++ )

► sv_cheats 1 ( IMPORTANT. THIS NEEDED FOR SOME COMMANDS TO WORK AT ALL. )
► r_lod 8 ( Will Lower The Model That The NPC Use. Like More Blocky Arms. See Picture Below To See How Much It Effects. )



► mat_dxlevel 70 ( Forces The Game To Use DirectX 7 - Will Greatly Improve Performance On Older GPU's )
► mat_picmip 4 ( Controls How Much Detail The Texture Is. 4 Is The Lowest Possible. See The Below To See How Much That Is. )


► mat_showlowresimage 1 ( This Will Use HL1 Textures For EVERYTHING. See The Picture Below To See How Much It Effects. This Greatly Improve Performance. )


( Please Note. When You Start Up Gmod, Open Console And Type exec autoexec.cfg

Im So Sorry To Say This But You Need To Do Is...

Upgrade Your PC!

Maybe it's a good time to get yourself a new PC!

GPU! ( Graphics Processing Unit )

Get something like

2+ GB OF GRAPHICS MEMORY!
GDDR5
I recommended "R7 250 2GB GDDR5" - low power,strong,small price.

CPU! ( Central Processing Unit! )

Get something like

4 CORES / 8 CORES (2 cores are kinda dead at this generation.)
Aim for a good speed.
I Recommended Intel Core i3-8100. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/bes...,5668.html




RAMS! ( Random Access Memory )

There's no clear answer how much ram you will need.

I Recommended 8+GB of RAM as possible.
Get DDR3 (DDR2 are slow, DDR4 is too expensive)
It Depends on your style of gaming. bunch of mods = ram.
