GMOD Opens then closes.. Help?

So.. I will just get straight into the problem..

Fist before we start:

I have ran gmod before and I have 600 hours on it so it has worked before for me.

I always have had to use -dxlevel 80

It does not give me any error messages, it just opens and I see the HL char and see the "loading" screen. Then it closes like 5 seconds after opening maybe sooner

I run gmod 13, it does not respond but then it works fine.. But I want to play gmod normal.

So really, I open gmod. Loading screen comes up for like 3 seconds then closes with no errors or hl2.exe stopped working.

I hope someone can help or give me some ideas on how to fix this because I really want to be able to play GMOD. And if it does not work then I can only hope when gmod 13 is released it will work then. Thanks for anyone who helps before hand

If you HAVE to use dx80, I'm not sure that Gmod 13 even supports it, you might want to look around on Facepunch for details on that. dx80 is very, very old, and I know you don't want to hear it but your rig is probably not going to make it with G13 live.

Most of the typical fixes for gmod 12's issues *no longer work*, so I can't really say much more than try the typical and see if they do... Verify the game files, restart Steam. If you already know how to use the dx level ... You're one up on most folks already, but sadly I just don't know that the game is going to be functional for you much longer.

I can run Gmod13 fine right now, its only normal gmod I'm having the problems with. I suspect when gmod13 is put as normal I shall be able to run normal, but I don't really want to wait untill gmod 13 comes out until I can play gmod normal again.

Well, unfortunately, gmod 12 keeps breaking more and more every time it 'updates'. I gave up on mine when none of the normally-working addons would show up at all any more, a reasonably common error like a lot of folks are having opening certain game modes or being kicked from servers/maps, or the inability to download anything.

Well, I guess its only 2-3 days now before the gmod13 goes live. I'm hoping all my problems will just fade away when it goes live if not.. Idk..
