Test an addon without uninstall all?

Sometimes, other addons can prevent the proper functioning of some scripts. You then contact me to report a bug but some tests have to be done beforehand. To avoid wasting time opening a ticket, test my addon separately from the other addons to ensure that it is not a conflict with another one. This is usually the case. In all cases I provide support.

If you already have a server to test your addons before installing them, it's perfect, you have the right reflex. Otherwise follow the following steps, thanks to it you will not have to delete all your addons and upload them. You will save a lot of time.

I) Create a folder that you will rename "addons_disabled" in the "addons" folder at this location : GarrysMod/garrysmod/addons/addons_disabled

II) Drag all the addons you don't want to disable into the "addons_disabled" folder, until you keep only the one you want to test, this avoids re-uploading your addons and thus saves time in your tests.
gmod_check_conflict1


III) Restart the server, if the problem is solved then you will know that the problem is not from my script. By adding addons group by group you will quickly find the cause of the problem.

IV) Once the conflict is found, you will be able to report it to me properly and I could fix the problem effectively. If the problem is still present, support will be provided in any case if it concerns one of our scripts.
