Client Update (FiveM/RedM) for January 26th, 2022

An update to the platform (version 5265) has been released to the ‘production’ channel. This update will be automatically installed.

This update applies to both FiveM and RedM, and includes the following changes:

  • Reliability updates for the bundled Rockstar Games Launcher. This dependency was updated in the release before to support new environments (among which, 12th generation Intel CPUs), and this release fixes a number of regressions that showed up after the update.
  • Some general launch tweaks. This includes items such as simplification of subprocess names.
  • A few notable bug fixes for issues users encountered, such as:
    • FiveM: Race conditions in ‘native audio’ leading to a game crash.
    • FiveM: Direct-rendered UI (‘DUI’) transparency having ‘edge shadows’, for example when used with DRAW_SPRITE (‘premultiplied alpha’).
    • All: The game freezing when dragged in windowed mode with an external window from the F8 console (such as ‘resmon’) opened.
    • All: In-game build switching showing ‘An unknown error occurred’ when a DLC file is missing, instead of the correct error message.
