    Im reinstalling Garrys Mod since i cant play multiplayer at all (Steam Validation Rejected error, and while were on this note, anyone know how to fix it?) and wondering if i will still have all my addons if i reinstall gmod? Ive made a new folder and put all my addons in just in case.

    I hope you tried the following:

    Restarting Steam
    Deleted ClientRegistry.blob and starting Steam
    Deleting the Steam folder EXCEPT steamapps and your folder where the screenshots are


    But yeah if one of your addons were in the garrysmod/garrysmod folder then you'd have to reinstall those.

    I deleted ClientRegistryBlob, and i got an error about system 32. I ran steam again, and the error went. When i started up gmod, the steam validation error was still there. I deleted all my folders apart from steamapps, downloaded them all again and steam validation was still there. I have restarted steam many times, over 15 tries, and no success. What the hell do i do!?!? Please reply

    You tell me, both (Facepunch and Steam) accounts have insignificant time gaps between them and it's all full of F2P games (Three), and the most played is TF2 with a ridiculous 16 hours on record.
    And it's online right now.

    There's no way in hell deleting ClientRegistry.blob could give you a system32 error.
    Steam Validation Rejected only occurs when you don't own the game, and Steam can check if you REALLY own the game or not.

    The solution to this problem is called actually buy GMod, Garry deserves the money.

    according to his steam link in fp is http://steamcommunity.com/id/Bullerboy22
    which I suppose Bullerboy22 is his steam id (a lot of people do that)
    and this id goes to this profile http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197995053624
    so he has the game

    4 years gap between both accounts and both are used to play TF2, only game recently played in common is TF2, both have been playing in the last 2 weeks, and both have been online today in hour-long time gaps.
    Yep, totally a 'main' account.
    It more seems like I <3 Nachos is some guy who helped OP in TF2 and decided to friend him.

    Also, you'd think OP would've been on "his" account when he posted the thread, but he was on Marston334 at the moment, and I <3 Nachos was last online a few hours ago back then.

    I'm not sure what that means, explain it and if we don't believe it, then screw it. Write "HI FP" on both of your accounts and post the links to them here.

    Edited:

    Considering that you've actually been telling the truth and have two accounts.

    If you're getting STEAM validation rejected, it's because you have a cracked gmod joining an official public server not meant for cracked users.

    And for the addons question, depends how you're going to reinstall gmod.
