Changing Garry's Mod to DX8 on a gifted game

For all my other steam games to set them to run on DX8 I simply put -dxlevel 81 in the launch options but on my copy of Garry's Mod that I received as a gift it stays on DX9 even if I input said code into the launch options. Whether this is because the game is gifted or not I don't know. What the launch options read as currently are
steam://rungameid/4000 -dxlevel 81. If anyine has any ideas I would appreciate them.

Type it in the console. "mat_dxlevel 81" You have to do it every time, but it still works.

Thanks for that, that seems to have done the trick
