How to install DarkRP on your GMod Server

In this article we are going to be showing you how to install DarkRP Gamemode onto your GMod Server.

What is DarkRP?

DarkRP is a game mode designed for Garry's Mod, offering role-playing elements. In this mode, players have the opportunity to engage in various activities on their GMod server, including acquiring different jobs. The gameplay focuses on interactive experiences, allowing players to connect with others and collaborate in constructing bases, creating an enjoyable and social gaming environment.

Installing DarkRP Manually

  • Firstly, you are going to want to download DarkRP from the official DarkRP Github
  • Once you have downloaded the DarkRP Files, you will then need to create a folder called "DarkRP" in /garrysmod/gamemodes/
  • Then you will extract the contents from the file you got from Github into the "DarkRP" folder
  • Then you need to change your gamemode type from sandbox to darkrp
  • Finally, restart your server for it to take affect

Not quite working?

If the setup doesn't succeed, please ensure that the DarkRP files are properly downloaded and installed. Also, verify that you've adjusted your server's startup settings from 'sandbox' to 'darkrp'. It's crucial to avoid altering or removing any essential game files, as this might necessitate a complete server reinstallation.

For further customization, we recommend an addon named 'DarkRP Modification', which simplifies the process of modifying the game mode. In case of any errors, consult the console for the error message and consider searching for it online, as it's likely that others have encountered the same problem.
