Garry's Mod Lua Main Menu

A Lua powered ( No HTML ) main menu for Garry's Mod. It is meant for those who do not have main menu in Garry's Mod by default. Note that this is a personal project, and it is not going to be included into Garry's Mod. It does not have some features that I don't use. Some other features that are not part of the standard menu might be added in the future.

Missing/Broken Features

  • Server browser - This menu uses the default Source Engine server browser
  • Demos and Saves - I never use those so I didn't bother adding them. Who uses them anyway?
  • Good looks
  • You can't browse through new/top rated/ect addons in main menu. You should use the Open Workshop button anyway.

New/Fixed Features

  • I think it's faster then the default one
  • Achievement menu
  • More functionality for New Game and Addons menus
  • Server settings in "new game" menu are working properly
  • Caching - map and workshop icons are cached - you only slowly load them once, and then it's fast
  • No HTML
