The set-up before uploading.
Hello everybody and welcome to my guide!
In this guide I will tell you how I upload my guides to the workshop!
Its fairly simple but before we start we need some programs set up!

Step 1:
Navigate to your Garry's Mod installation folder (Steam/steamapps/common/garrysmod/)
Once you are in here go to step 2.

Step 2:
Open the "bin" folder and copy the following files to your desktop or easy to find folder:
- gmad.exe
- gmpublish.exe

Then you need to copy these files from your Steam folder and paste it on your desktop or folder.(Steam/steamapps/common/garrysmod/):
- steam_api.dll

Edit on 1 August 2020: to find the installation folder, you can also follow these steps:

1. Right click on GMOD in your Steam Library
2. Click "Properties"
3. Click on "Local Files"
4. Click on "Browse Local Files"



.gma creating and uploading!
Step 1:
Take your addon folder (the folder with the addon.json file and all the other parts) and drag the whole folder on the gmad.exe file (DO NOT OPEN THE GMAD.EXE FILE! (it will open automatically)
Wait a around 30 seconds to 1 minute (depending on how big your file is) until the program closes.

Step 2:
Now you should have a .gma file of your addon.
Open the gmpu file in java (the file in the folder you downloaded earlier) and do the following:
- Select at the gmpublish tab and at the gmad tab "Path" line the folder(!) where you copied your gmad file and gmpublish file to.
And then click "ok"

Step 3:
Locate the "file" button under a blanc list (blanc if you never uploaded a file before)
Click the file button and select your .gma file.

Step 4:
Locate the icon bar and click load on the far right.
Now you need to select your icon file (should be 512x512 pixels)

Step 5:
Click the "Add to queue" button on the bottom of the page and click the "Execute" button under the box in the right top corner.
Now you need to wait until it says "Publish finished" in the box under the execute button.
