    So for the past few days I have experienced a issue. When joining chronet and most other servers, my game would visually freeze but will still be playing in the background. All I would see is a solid picture in-game and if I were to move/jump I would hear footsteps and jumping. This would also occur when joining the server, it would show the "sending client info" screen but I can still hear whats goin on in the game in the background. I would appreciate any help, thank you for your time.

    Try playing in fullscreen windowed mode.
    1. Right-click on the game title under the Library in Steam and select Properties.
    2. Under the General tab click the Set launch options...button.
    3. Enter "-windowed -noborder"
    4. Click OK
    Also make sure your drivers are updated.

    This is just an odd source engine glitch. It's a sort of ungraceful crash. It's usually triggered from alt-tabbing.

    If anything, you should consider removing your workshop subscriptions, and deleting the common/garrysmod/garrysmod folder for a clean slate. Just restart the game and it'll recreate the base folders.
