how do i get rid of this? [Not allowed by whitelist] File list verification failed
Tactical Films (1 year ago)
Gmod does not like on the the files that you used. There are specific file formats that it accepts. From the Gmod wiki (https://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Workshop_Addon_Creation): info.txt or addon.txt are not needed You can only upload files that would normally be mounted by the game, except for: .dll, .exe, .htm, .html, .css and .js files are restricted .txt files are restricted too, except for vehicle scripts There's a newer tutorial btw: https://youtu.be/37Ie3ditfqU

can you help me make a weapon
Tactical Films (2 years ago)
I'm not avid at making Gmod game weapons but here is my tip: decompile an existing weapon addon pack and modify/tinker with the code. Then try to make your own weapons. Eventually this will lead to you being able to create the Gmod weapons yourself.

It asks me "are you the author" and it can´t publish the addon... pls Help ;D

No problem!

The Muffin Man (3 years ago)
Hey so I see other people are having the problem with cmd keeps opening with gmad.bat.. The same thing is happenening to me but I'm launching it off the right drives...
The Muffin Man (3 years ago)
Okay. Thanks for the help!
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
No problem :) Hmm.. I'm trying to figure out what's wrong because a lot of people are having this issue and all the .bat file has in it is basic code that is even edited by the user. There is an alternative to this that I did not yet make a video about, it's called GMPU (Garry's Mod Publishing Utility). It's a nice GUI that's way easier than following this video :)
The Muffin Man (3 years ago)
+TommTutorials Off the desktop and off the c drive it's self. Thanks for the reply too!

Hi, are you running it off of the C:/ drive?

it just says cannot parse addon
Icalestro (3 years ago)
I'm pretty late, but um...It says that the file could not save.
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
+OfficialAngryGaming Hmm not quite sure what the problem is, but I assume that you are running the file on an external drive of some sort, OR, you may be saving a file that's too large/corrupt? I would just perform some trial and error, I'm not really sure what else I can say. Here's a link to the Garry's Mod wiki for help if you need more: http://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Workshop_Addon_Creation Hope it helped :)

How do I upload a trailer video to the preview on workshop?
ComedyGTV (3 years ago)
Okay thanks, I shall have a nosey now :)
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
+ComedyGTV You need to go to the settings of the workshop item and there should be an option for video/images on the right side when you look at the addon's page. Hope it helped :)

fucking idiot makes repeating cmd, oldest trick in the book dumbass, didn't even run the .bat and already figured out. Fuck you and your shitty mic
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
+woozy Wow bruh, I hope you know that you have to run the .bat file on your own drive, not an external drive or plugged-in thing. If you run it on something other than the drive that came with your PC (by "run" I mean, save it on it) then it will spam windows of batch files. It's not a problem with the file :/

Make sure that you paste in the right path into the file otherwise it doesn't like that and spams.

Angry Swede Chilean (3 years ago)
+TommTutorials when i activate the GMAD.bat file i get a message in red in the command box that says: "file list verification failed". Does this has to do with the addon.txt i have in the folder or is it something else
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
Angry Swede Chilean (3 years ago)
Fixed it, still had some files with capital addons. thx :)
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
+Emilio Andrée This has to do with the files inside your addon. I believe you cannot use capital letters as well as there being a restriction to certain files. There's more about file restrictions and such here --> http://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Workshop_Addon_Creation

Hey Tomm, after I run the .bat I get an erros "Couldn't parse json"
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
You probably have a mistake in the file path and/or are using incorrect slashes. Try to use opposite slashes or try to re-insert the file path.
MrDoradoFett (3 years ago)
+TommTutorials Help, it keeps saying couldn't find file. I put everything correct. what am I missing?
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
Np :)

Your .json file must have an error.

lol in my gmad file it wasn't the thingy. It actually said C:\Users\Tomasz\Desktop\Tutorial in it XD
NJLamp Films (3 years ago)
When i opened up GMAD it started opening up endless CMD prompts, and then my computer froze. I couldnt shut it off with the power button so i unplugged it from the surge protector, but also accidentally unplugged the lamp too. Fumbling around in the dark, i shocked myself on the outlet by accident. Thanks for the useless, computer crashing BAT file, and go to hell.
+NJLamp Films Its actually quiet impossible cuz in the run section there is nothin that opens more cmds, just starten the gmod file and compressing the one
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
+LittleBinx Hmm, what operation systems are you guys running, I ran this on Windows 8 and Windows 10, and it worked fine Not sure what's going on, a few other people reported the same issue with endless CMD windows opening.

Ummm when i launch the gmad.bat its REALLY fucking up... it keeps opening new cmds saying it cant find the directory somehow and just keep spamming them
Derpy Gaming (3 years ago)
+CaptainDeagle62 (Community Channel) nope. :( but i have used gmpu 2.2  to make an addon. i will give you the link if you want to try it, its very simple and easy.
Sorrow Sky (3 years ago)
+Derpy Gaming I Have the same problem as you, and i did everything in the video. still no fix?
Derpy Gaming (3 years ago)
+TommTutorials Okay, thanks for the advice. Also its a really informative video you made, most isn't. :) 
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
+Derpy Gaming You must not have the proper installation of gmad or Garry's Mod. Try reinstalling Garry's Mod.

Steelecrusher (3 years ago)
When I try to download it my chrome blocks it because it says its a virus
Steelecrusher (3 years ago)
Thanks also that doesn't really make since i use .bat files all the time to run programs I make or use ect. Like running servers for example. Idk though it's your program so.
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
+TommTutorials There you go, new link :P
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
+Steele Anthony Darn, sorry about that. It detects .bat files so it automatically rules it out as a virus. I'll upload a new link. Sorry about that.
Foxtrot YT (3 years ago)
whenever i double click gmad.exe it says its not allowed by the white list
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
You can only use specific files in an addon. For example, you can use .lua files but you cannot use .zip files. You can easily find this whitelist if you look it up on Google, just search up something like "Gmad whitelist."

Thanks mate. Now I can finally upload my weapon packs to the twerkshop.

You are a fucking griefer, that GMAD.bat if fucking malicious.
Mat Smith (3 years ago)
I was a bit pissed :P I thought it was one of those troll batch files that was mean't to make my computer crash
Mat Smith (3 years ago)
Sorry, I over reacted. There was an error, so it got caught in a loop so it started making an infinite amount of instances of the cmd window. made my computer crash
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
It's no malicious, FYI. Chrome simply detects is as such because it is a .bat file. Try uploading one that has no text in it, same message will show up. Use something called Google next time.

There is a whitelist of files that Garry actually allows in a workshop add-on, you can probably find this on garrysmod.org

I tried this... then when I opened GMAD.bat, DOZENS of command prompt windows opened, my PC started lagging to shit, then my antivirus fired off...It took HOURS to close all of the windows before restarting my PC
oh ok

Nah I just typed the wrong stuff, did something else and now my stuff is on thw rokshop :D
+ʃȍɳɡʃȍɳɢʊȿɛʀɲǻɱɛ +TommTutorials this happened to me too, how do I fix it?
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
This is because you most likely opened it on an external hard drive or hard disk that is not directly connected to your motherboard. This would create a spam because it tries to call the same function over and over with a delay as it is on direct.
ALMarkAZ Studios (3 years ago)
Addon was uploaded and made successfully when I tried that but my picture of the addon at the steam workshop did not appears, only a black screen :L what I've done wrong ?
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
The picture was probably uploaded but Steam might not have processed it yet as of it receiving a heavy load of images and addons through the workshop. What I would suggest doing is to wait a couple hours and see if the picture is working — this usually works for me.

It shouldn't do that... try going to the downloads and click "recover malicious file", this sounds a bit sketchy, but it works.
GmodTH judy hopps (3 years ago)
like the maps in the workshoop
Tactical Films (3 years ago)
You need to have steam launched while doing this, if that does not work, check if the directory is correct. If both of these do not work, try to either restart your computer, or task manager out of steam. I've experienced this problem before, and that is how I solved it, Mike Witteveen.

Please re-watch the video, I have clearly indicated this.

Eey nice tutorial, clear voice and good quality! I just got 1 problem, when i press the publish file it says this: "Error opening addon (does the file exist?)" I tryed multiple things but i can't find a way to fix, please help.
