    Before Gmod 13, I had no issues with TTT, but now I cannot see fire or blood spray particles. I have tried mounting and unmounting certain games, verifying game caches, setting launch options for Gmod such as -dxlevel 9, and probably a few other things I'm forgetting. On the map Cruise, I can't see furniture in this one room with a fountain or something in the middle, but I don't know if that's related to this or not. Anyone else had this issue and know a fix?

    What video card do you have currently in your system? (If you don't know how to check, you can check by typing "dxdiag" in the windows search (should be dxdiag.exe, click that), click "Yes", and click the "Display" tab.)

    It is a NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT which has 1 gig of RAM. I believe my DirectX is up to date and I'm pretty sure the card's drivers are up to date, but I'll be checking that next...

    EDIT: The drivers were old, so I'm updating those now.

    That should be the issue. Old drivers always fuck with games. If it doesn't work, post back here.
