"Garry's Mod" is an independent sandbox game playable only through the Steam content delivery service. In order to run it, you must have a game installed that uses the Source engine, such as "Half-Life 2," "Left 4 Dead" or "Counter-Strike: Source." If you want to change the gamemode setting, you must navigate into the "server.cfg" configuration file, found within the installation folder.
