Garry's Mod

Garry's Mod 11 (Source 2007)
Garry's mod allows people to play around with valve's physics engine, to spawn props and construct weird devices. The game features several default levels for Gmod, and can be extended by other valve games, such as half-life (1 and 2), the episodes and for instance portal and TF2.
There are several game modes available, the default being sandbox, but possibilities include Zombie Survival (scary), Space build, where one builds a spacecraft to conquer planets, and Build to the Top (an external map) which is great fun in multiplayer.

What works

Playing the game, making stuff, adding mods, playing with mods, adding NPC's, interacting with NPC's, blowing stuff up, etc.

What does not

Some levels such as GM_Construct.

By default, holding Q to open the menu does not work and causes the menu to blink and the player to look up and spin indefinitely.

To fix this problem, make the Q menu a toggle-able button. A way to do this is to add the following code to your "Config.cfg" or "Autorun.cfg" located in ...\Steam\steamapps\Username\garrysmod\garrysmod\cfg:
alias QToggle "QMenuOn"
alias QMenuOn "+menu; alias QToggle QMenuOff"
alias QMenuOff "-menu; alias QToggle QMenuOn"

Then, once you are in the game go to the console and bind Q to "Qtoggle".
Thanks to Facepunch Studios users for that one.

Props killing people or hitting each other causes the game to crash. I don't know what to do about this one except tell you not to get hit by a falling anvil. 
There are some fixes out there, though.

Also, FPS is less then half of what it is in Windows.


What was not tested

Multiplayer, non-working levels.
