I have garry's mod, but don't have hl2. Can I play this mod because technically garrys mod is hl2?

I don't think so, Smod Standalone requires some specific files. But you can try.

Most likely it means the installer can't find those files in programfiles\steam. Make sure you're running the installer from Sourcemods with admin rights, in any case here's the dll:

I'm afraid it's still giving me errors. I've spent the last 30 minutes moving the tier0.dll around, to no luck. Here's a picture of what I'm dealing with. Note, the command prompt to the right popped up after I closed 3-4 tier0.dll errors, most likely in conjunction with the vpk_fixed.dll. I have HL2 installed, and was playing a HL2 mod (Underhell) during and before installation. I also ran with administrative rights, and as administrator, but I'm still having no luck. Any ideas?

Would normally add this as an edit, but I found my tier0_s.dll in the Steam folder. It's still not finding it, for some reason. I'm running it on my C: drive, though I'm using a 64-bit system, so perhaps it's having difficulty deciphering the difference between Program Files and Program Files (x86)?

That might be the case, it says on the release notes of Smod Standalone that Sourcemods must be on the same unit as SDK 2006. Anyway, we have an alternate (uncompressed) installation file for these kind of emergencies:

I CANNOT thank you enough! This was a godsend, and upon transferring the files (with the exception of the mods folder) it worked! The only oddity was that, for some reason, my original executable was labelled 'Stanalone'. I have no idea why, or even if this little mistype was the cause of my troubles, but I thank you immensely regardless, xdiesp_.

It's a common report, apparently SMOD Standalone forces OpenGL rendering on a few maps: Kleiner's lab being the first.
