I have tried everything. Would be nice if CFX could answer and actually help with their support instead of sitting around and not offering any help…Been at this for 48hrs an nothing works. But I can play FiveM easily.

Man we’re not the only people with errors we just have to wait a bit. I bought the game 72 hours to roleplay on stream and i have this error, it is what it is.

Let´s just hope them figure this out fast so we can play with our friends and have fun thats the main goal.


Same Error

You’re not really hoping for an answer, are you? In the Discord of CFX there is no answer for over a year. :frowning:

aye im here for the same reason, just keeps me restarting and hoping but its realy tearing on me ._.

i get the same error. tried alot of stuff. clearing cache, reinstall, mobile hotspot, changing DNS, flushing DNS etc… tried making a new account. edditing files and so on. my guess is that the problem lies with CFX since the problem seems to be that our account wont authenticate with we’re getting a “access denied 403 message.” for some reason.
