no need to upload that… It’s a FiveM problem

Some weeks ago I created a shortcut that automatically connects into my server. (fivem://connect/ip:port)
After the last update it doesn’t work anymore. How can i fix that?


Fivem://connect/ no longer opens FiveM

Not a FiveM feature request, moved to #technical-support.

I can confirm that I’m having this issue as well. Chrome still recognizes that fivem:// is a FiveM client address, but nothing happens. Same for a desktop shortcut. May warrant bug report if numerous users can confirm.

Follow Up: If the client is open, fivem:// works as desired. The problem is that the client will not launch from that protocol. Digging through commits to see if I can narrow down a commit that may have caused the issue.

Spitballing, looks like this commit from two days ago may have impacted this: https://github.com/citizenfx/fivem/commit/1290af0f82d874a8828319c38b8024db4c65563b

FiveM.ProtocolHandler in the Windows registry appears to handle the connection string association, and is used in the file that was updated two days ago.

HKEY_USERS\GUID\FiveM.ProtocolHandler\shell\open\command looks to store this.

Not familiar enough with the application to commit any fixes.
