1.type in garrys mod into the search box...

2.now click on COUNTER STRIKE:SOURCE + GARRY'S MOD this will save you loads of time and having to download them seperatley, unless you already have counterstrike or half life or want to play counterstrike or half life...

3.you will now see them both on a kind of "checkout" which will add up the prices of both games(you save money if you buy both games together!) now click purchase and fill out your details (you really have to be a fool if you need a to be instructed how to do that!)

My question:
I have NO Valve games for the PC (I do for XBOX but that won't help XD) but I want Gmod. I would like to use all the characters and such from Half Life. If I get GMod plus the Source game Counterstrike, will I be able to use characters like Lamar and Alyx in Gmod? Or will I be limited to Counterstrike characters? Please help~
I dont know if you'll be able to play as Alyx straight away, but you can download character models, for example I play as link. But if I remember correctly Lamar is the head crab in that guys lab? Well I've never seen a guy play as just the headcrab, only the zombies

Okay, one more question. If GMod 9 is free and GMod 10 has tools like Door and Keypad and such, what is this? It's not GMod 9 for it costs $10 but it's not 10 because it doesn't have all the tools. So is this GMod 9.5 or what?

I have noooo clue how to download gmod 9 :-[?????????????
Here is what you do. Have you PURCHASED a source game? 

If not, get one.

FOR GMOD 9:
Once you have a source game, go to the tools tab on steam.

Download all of the things that say:
Source SDK Base

Google: GMOD 9.0.4c
Download it, install it, restart steam.
There you go, it is in your games list.



Let me tell you, after playing both, Garrysmod 9 is literally just a demo

No, you can get GMOD 9 for free, but GMOD 10 only costs less when you buy the package.

i want g mod but all the source games are Rated M do i need a source game 2 play garrys mod
if you buy portal it will work as a source and its not rated M (my mom will freak if she even smells a bad game and she let me buy portal. and come on portal + gmod is only 20 bucks!)
Yah, um i was just wondering. I dont get what g-mod is, i want it for Half Life, but do you have to buy half life to have g mod or is gerrys mod Half Life. Or can u just explain, when i download g-mod do i have to buy half life to play it? please answer ASAP please.
Gmod is a game that derives properties (guns, maps, characters, etc.) from Source Engine games (Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Day of Defeat:Source) and requires ONE Source game to be played online. Half-Life 2 does not need Gmod to work. Hope this clears this up.

you have to buy gmod to play gmod and half life to play half life...gmod does not include half life and half life does not include gmod. hope i helped
