Also add what you already tried so far.
This happened last week as well. Would even happen with fresh installs of FiveM. Had to reinstall it 6 times in one day, then when it still wasn’t working. I reinstalled GTA V and FiveM the next day and it seemed to work. Now a few days later it’s doing the same though. No major or minor changes to the computer since then. Game worked yesterday.


Same exact thing happens to me, mine has never worked though. It acts like it’s going to load the opening GTA mission and then freezes in the screen where it says “North Yankton” whatever. I’ve reinstalled it multiple times on different drives and won’t fix. Regular GTA launches in seconds 100+ FPS.


I’ve now reinstalled the game 3 times since making this post. After the first time, the game worked for about an hour, then another program forced it to tab out, and it crashed and stopped working completely. Installing it the other two times after have done nothing to fix it.
