"Garry's Mod" ("GMod") is an online, sandbox-style computer game that allows players unlimited freedom in creating gadgets and scenarios. Admins of a "GMod" server are responsible for enforcing the rules of a server, can kick other players off and have more creation options than a normal player. If you are running your own hosted server for "GMod," you can make other players admins by editing the User.txt file your in "GMod" installation directory.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open your "GMod" installation directory and go into the settings folder.

  2. 2

    Find and open the file "Users.txt" with a text editing program, such as Word Pad.

  3. 3

    Find the groups labelled "Superadmin" and "Admin". Delete the line that says "//garry" for both groups and replace with the name of the player you want to make an admin or superadmin.

  4. 4

    Insert that player's Steam ID on the same line as his name, replacing the field that says "STEAM_0:1:7099" to say "STEAM_0:1:NUM", where NUM is that player's Steam ID.

  5. 5

    Save and close the file. Reload the server and that player will be an admin on your server.

Tips and warnings

  • Players can find out their Steam ID by typing "Status" in the console.
