    Basically, I have keep corpses checked, yet after about 30 seconds, the corpse will disappear.

    The only thing I can think of, is that at one point, I had Gmod set to DirectX 7. I can change it to a higher level, if that is what solves the issue.

    Try increasing the cvar g_ragdoll_maxcount. Default value is 8.

    Bump. It has nothing at all to do with too many ragdolls, because the issue can happen when only one is present.

    I have no idea then. It'd help if you could reply to people's responses in a timely manner.

    Have you tried increasing your dxlevel (probably unrelated) and uninstalling your addons?

    I was on vacation from the holidays.

    DX level is set in the launch options to 90, and I've completely re-installed the game and used a clean addons folder, and gmod folder, to no avail.

    Probably sounds silly, but what are your specs, seen as you're playing with DirectX 7.

    Windows 7

    I was on Direct X 7 because I was playing Fallout 3 and Gmod at the same time. Just to see if I could.

    Make sure g_debug_ragdoll_removal is 0, otherwise, check g_ragdoll_fadespeed to see what its set to.

    Fixed, thanks.

    I changed the fadespeed from 600 to 0.

    Problem is up again. I've tried all the fixes posted here, the corpses still vanish in about 30 seconds.

    Bump. I found the solution! Bump. What a great catchphrase...anyways, there is a command called npcg_ragdoll_lifetime! If you set it to 999999999999999999999999 then the ragdolls should stick around long enough for your purposes. If you turn keep corpses off, they dissapear instantly...hope I helped! I had the same dilemna for a long time...
