Cfx Community Update: 1st Edition
Welcome to the 1st weekly update for the Cfx community, spanning FiveM, RedM, and overall Cfx updates.
This post is written by a group of community members and serves as a way to update you on the latest happenings within FiveM and RedM, which we all love so much.
Below is a list of the most important news and updates in the past week.
- 100,000+ active players milestone reached!
- New Discord Integration
- RedM now works again!
- Partnership with Tebex to allow for-profit purchases
- txAdmin 2.x replaces fxmonitor!
- Support for new Reshade/ENB Series breaks old version
100,000+ concurrent player count reached!
Since the tragic COVID-19 developments these past few months, many people are seeking ways to pass time and entertain themselves. We are all so lucky to have FiveM/RedM and more people have been playing at the same time more than ever. On March 29th the 100,000 concurrent player mark was broken. As of mid April this number has reached 109,190, which even does not go unnoticed on Steam’s top 10 games.
New Discord Integration
The Cfx.re project received an email late March informing them about the ‘silent’ authentication of Discord. This is an important feature as many servers like to use Discord for their whitelist, roles and other great uses. The developers were quickly able to update it with the help of Discord to comply to their requirement. You can now use Discord like you always have, but you now have to give permission for FiveM/RedM to use your Discord user id.
RedM works again!
Finally new/returning users can play RedM . This tweet was very sad news for many new or returning RedM players. It was a very difficult problem for Cfx to fix as it relies on Rockstar’s own services. Without this it would be impossible to verify that someone owns Red Dead Redemption 2 and no one likes pirates. Luckily, the smart Cfx developers were able to restore the Rockstar Online Service authentication within a short time. Rejoice!
Partnership with Tebex
A partnership between Cfx and Tebex was announced, allowing server owners to have for-profit purchases within a game server. This also means loosening of the “for-profit” term in the Terms of Service in the future. Most of us are happy about that . You can read the full announcement here. If you are part of the Server Owners group, you can apply for early access here
txAdmin 2.x replaces fxmonitor
Now when you open
FXServer.exe instead of using the command prompt or a
.bat file, everything will be setup automatically. It cannot get easier than this! A lot of newcomers to the modding scene will appreciate this
Support for new Reshade/ENB Series breaks old version
Recently FiveM updated to support the new Reshade and ENB mods that is used for a lot of graphics mods. Unfortunately this means that the old versions break . Cfx developers try to give you a warning when it does crash your FiveM, but sometimes this doesn’t happen.
If you get
d3d11.dll or any other crashes that have a
.dll in the error message which is also in your GTA V folder, you should either update your Reshade and/or ENB.
For you technical geeks, we’ve also added a list of the most important technical changes.
- Added Tebex commerce integration
- Added tweaks to server endpoints so weak systems don’t hang as quickly
- Added new vehicle natives for FiveM
- Added Xbox One controller haptics for vehicles - Shakey, shake in a
cl_drawPerfto show performance metrics on the top left (Enable with
- Improve FiveM main menu to lessen the load and allow for messages when services are down
- Updated FiveM documentation
- Updated FiveM.net website with some tiny tweaks
- Updated txAdmin version
- Fixed Windows 7
- Fixed support for Reshade and ENB Series
Without the Cfx community, both FiveM and RedM will not exist. Therefore, we want to highlight some positive and influential members as well as some cool new #development:releases and #fivem-snapmatic
