  • I want to reinstall Garry's Mod like new.Like I don't want any achievements unlocked, as if I just bought it. Also, I tried to do this way Delete Local Contend->Delete Garry's Mod Folder->Reinstall, but it didnt like restart the achievements and stuff.I tried to do it the other way around, but still no luck.I even tried to close steam and then delete the Garry's Mod folder and reinstall.So please someone tell me how to reinstall Garry's Mod like new!

  • Achievements are held on steam's side. There is no way of deleating them.

  • "Like new"? Buy a new copy of GMod on a new steam account, perhaps? [editline]07:49PM[/editline] Just like the above guy said.

And vwalla :)

  • Go into steam/steamapps/[username]/garrysmod/ and rename your second "garrysmod" folder to "garrysmod old" then start the game. A new, clean folder will be created. You can then do whatever you want with the "garrysmod old" folder.
  • or you could just go into steam games and right click garrysmod 100% ready then click delete all local content then go to store and find garrysmod click on it it will be free since u already bought it download it and there u go :)

  • Did you know you can install games from your games list? You don't have to go to the store page.
