I do not have any mods install on my gta v directory


upload the log file without numbers behind it.

Also post screenshots of your GTA5 and FiveM Directories.


Here i upload the directories and thanks for trying to help me i appreciate it.And btw i didnt understand what to upload (log files without numbers behind it).

Can you try and connect to one of these servers:
a) https://servers.fivem.net/#/servers/detail/
b) https://servers.fivem.net/#/servers/detail/


Still got the same problem ive been trying to find solution for a month now and still got nothing.But its ok,Thanks for trying to help me!


I just asked, it seems to be network related. You are getting somehow an corrupted YAML string, thus it fails to parse it.

Just a few more thing:

  • Do you use any networking software? (VPNs and such).
  • Do you have an anti-virus running that might block the incoming request?

If none of the above applies, then it’s likely something in your network is messing this up, This could be an ISP related issue possibly.


I do not remember downloading any network software so i dont think thats the one but maybe it is i dont know how to locate it and stuff i do not know such things like VPNs and such.
Now for the anti-virus i have running windows defender security center and windows firewall but thats not it im pretty sure ive already turned them off but still got the little problem.
And i dont know what ISP really is.Sorry :smiley:
