ULX download and pathing issues
« on: May 27, 2020, 12:59:31 PM »
Hi guys, I apologise cos I'm a real noob, but I am struggling to get ULX and ULIB working on my TTT server.

The server in question is hosted by Nitrado, a third party company. I have spent the last 2 days trying to figure this out but I am asking because I clearly do not understand what the issue is.

I am writing this after uninstalling gmod after my first attempt and deleting all the files associated it, so it's a clean install. I have then added some maps from this collection: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=253784839

And then I used SVN to put ULX and ULIB into the the add-on folder after reading the instructions on here. I noticed that the pathing/file sequence didn't match up with the tutorial.

Whenever I go into Gmod all the commands associated with ULX don't work, it says it is unknown. I originally had the two seperate files (ULX & ULIB) seperate in the addons solder but that also didn't work.

I also tried to get the workshop versions with no luck either. I feel really stupid like I am missing something here but I am struggling to wrap my head around this. 

I have also changed the superadmin and admin .txt file:

"Users"
{
   //
   // This is your users file
   //
   // You can use this file to add people as admins on your server
   // Add them to the relevant section
   //
   // If you're a Lua coder you can add your own sections and use them
   // in your script by doing pl:IsUserGroup( "admin" ) etc
   //

   "superadmin"
   {
      "Horehey"         "STEAM_0:1:14616139"
   }
   
   "admin"
   {
      "Horehey"         "STEAM_0:1:14616139"
   }

}


Thank you for your time.

You should have paths like:
Code: [Select]
/garrysmod/addons/ulib/lua/ulib/init.lua
/garrysmod/addons/ulx/lua/ulx/init.lua

I've never installed via SVN, only through the legacy archives, so I can't give help there. If you want to just install them like that, you can get them here: ULib and ULX

I'll give that a go and see if it works.
