9: Tried changing from fullscreen to windowed mode in normal gta
10: Tried playing normal gta and gta online, both work fine.


Do you have anything like fraps, discord overlay, overwolf overlay or any other type of screen overlay installed? if so try disabling that. If you don’t have any of that then I’m not sure what’s wrong.


No overlays at all, I use ts and discord but never enabled there overlays


maybe try downgrading a (couple) version(s)? Especially the video card drivers.


I tried 3 different driver but nothin, I spent the last 4 days trying to fix I jsut wanna play :frowning:


Well I really don’t know what’s wrong :confused:


After all the reinstalls I never ran the normal gta I went strait to fivem should i go on normal gta and let do the first time setups n stuff?


That’s recommended but I’m not sure if it’s required. It’s a good idea to see if GTA V even runs normally though so check that.


Yeah it runs already been on Normal gta and multiplayer gta


Strange, very strange.


It’s gotta be something that is sitting right in front of me i just can’t find


Could it be steam overlay?


Could be, try disabling it and see if it works. any type of overlay can cause issues.


I shut down discord and Steam, delete all cache as well and ran the first time setup of gta


Well none of that worked, I am so done man this is gonna mess up my pc


Honestly don’t know what’s wrong, never seen this before :confused:


everything with normal gta is fine, do you see any files missing @Vespura?


Nope I don’t. You re-installed GTA and FiveM right? Then everything should be fine…


Yeah like 8 times each bro, well it must be something else on my pc interfering with fivem somehow, what are the known programs that make fivem freeze?


That’s the most common one… don’t know of any others on top of my head.
