What is DarkRP?

DarkRP is a roleplay game mode for Garry’s Mod. It allows you to play in a realistic and roleplay environment on your GMod server and you can even get a job! This can be a lot of fun, interacting with new players and building bases with your friends.

The basic map in the DarkRP gamemode is “Downtown”

Facing Any Issues?

If this does not work, pleased check if you have downloaded and installed the DarkRP files correctly and changed ‘sandbox’ to ‘darkrp’ in your server’s startup parameters. Be careful not to modify or delete any of the core game files, as this may mean you will need to reinstall your entire server!

We suggest using a further addon called ‘DarkRP Modification’ which allows for easy modification of the game mode. If any errors occur, check the console for the error message, and try Googling it first.

We assure you that other people will have come across the same issue! If you are still unsure of how to fix the errors, feel free to contact our support team here.
