    Version 9.0.4 is free (but is no longer supported): Download
    But the one everyone is playing, and you'll be so behind the times if you don't get it, is Garry's Mod 10 :D It's $10. Steam linky

    Don't bother buying gmod 10 anymore because garry said once its done making money he is just gonna stop updating it.

    No, you will still be able to play it. It's just any bugs will not be fixed.

    I think Garry is lying :ninja:

    You can still play it just there will be no more updates once he stops making money which means once everyone gets this he will stop updating it which really pisses me off because everyone payd for this for a constantly updated version of gmod.

    Oh come on, you actually think that Garry will give up GMod, just like that? Think about it, he has made 9 versions of the game, which are FREE. I seriously doubt he would just abandon what he spent so much of his time on.

    You should just buy the pack that comes with Garry's Mod and Counter Strike Source. That is what I did and everything works out fine.

    Ya you need at least one source game to play this.
    i suggest half life 2 because most of the more useful props are on that.

    I am not sure if that will work, but I heard that if you try to buy Garrys' Mod 10 and are not going to be able to play it, steam will refuse to sell it to you.

    You could get the pack that comes with CSS and it will work for sure ($25). Or you could buy HL2 episode 1 ($10) and Garrys mod ($10) and that would work at only $20.

    Yes, you can just own CS:S to play it, but I recommend to have all of the required games.

    When you own CS:S you also download source SDK (I think this is the one) that contains all of the HL2 models. So, unless you really want to do HL2 co-op on garrys mod, you don't really need the others.

    ok i don't want to do co-op but all i want to do is make stuff like planes and robots and smash people. but wat is the difference between Gmod 9 and 10? .... so tommorow i am going to buy the CS:S with the Gmod included, is that all i need or is there something else. and will i have to get on a server thing to play or can i just play offline?

    and does the CS:S come with all of the HL2 models?

    you need a game that you have bought for steam to play garry's mod 9/10 for example

    CSS
    Half Life 2 / Episode 1

    etc

    Finaldeath I'm afraid that you know nothing about Garry's Mod. It's quite supported.

    :siren:This is what you need to do to play and install Garry's Mod 10:siren:

    A: Start Steam. Either buy the CSS+Gmod 10 pack or buy another Source game seperately. You'll know it's a Source game because when you go to buy it, 'Source SDK' will be included in the buy menu. You need Source SDK to play Garry's Mod 10. Source games include CSS, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, Day of Defeat:Source, Half Life 2, and Half Life 2: Episode 1. If you only download a demo of a Source game you still will not be able to play Garry's Mod.
    B: After buying the Source engine game, buy Garry's Mod 10. Let both games download. Before playing Garry's Mod 10, you must play the other game first. If you do not play the other Source game before playing Garry's Mod, it will not work.
    C: Play Garry's Mod 10.

    Additional notes: Half Life 2 props come standard with Garry's Mod, meaning you don't have to buy HL2 to get the props. However, you will need to have Day of Defeat:Source, CSS, or the respective game to use that game's props.

    Dark Messiah doesn't include the Source SDK base, but Half-Life 2: Deathmatch does, and isn't on the above list.

    So, to recap, one of the following games is required (you only NEED one, but you can have all of them without a problem. Duh):

    Counter-Strike: Source
    Day of Defeat: Source
    Half-Life 2
    Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
    Half-Life 2: Episode 1

    Source games that WILL NOT qualify:

    Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines
    SiN Episodes: Emergence
    Dark Messiah: Might and Magic
    The Ship

    no i mean in garry's mod.

    no my computer is great it's a hp with windows xp. but is there any kind of update that i have to install manually? and is there a reason for it pausing when i try to spawn certain props and most NPS's? because iit just takes all the fun away when i just get through with a really cool space ship and i try to spawn a ragdoll and it pauses and i have to restart my computer it lags so bad!

    ok anyway so i am all about halo i mean down right the next level up from obsessed with it! so where can i find some good models and skins and good halo stuff for gmod?
