Switching to Chromium/x86 (New HUD)

Switching to the Chromium/x86-64 beta branch

This branch is an experimental branch of Garry's Mod that offers extensive optimisation fixes and an alternative to the old Awesomium renderer - Chromium. We highly recommend that you use this branch for the greatest experience on our CityRP server, including using our new hud which only works exclusively with Chromium. If for some reason you can't or don't want to use this branch, you will fallback to our older hud.
Step 1: Ensure your game is properly closed, Steam will not allow you to change betas if the game is running.
Step 2: Right click on Garry's Mod in your Steam library, then select "Properties"
Step 3: Select the "Betas" tab up top, then use the dropdown box to select "Chromium + 64-bit binaries"

Congratulations, you are now on the better version of Garry's Mod! Make sure you use the beta with 64 bit binaries, as the older "Chromium" branch is no longer used and does not offer as much of a performance boost.
When starting your game Steam will now prompt you to select betwen the following 3 options:

Use the 64-bit launch option to get the greatest boost in performance. If you get stuck at any point along the way, feel free to drop a message to any one of our staff members who will be glad to help you out!
