Important parts

What is the issue you’re having?
Video of issue below: This a minor reflection of how bad it can get.

Recently how bad it has gotten:

Seems like correlated packet loss increase creates a stuttering/texture flickering issue that sometimes lasts 1-2 minutes and resolves itself. While streaming there are never dropped frames which leaves me to believe that it’s not an internet issue on my end. No idea. Not a computer guy.

What are you trying to do?
Potentially fix server related packet loss issues without using a VPN which I’ve seen from another online posts could be a solution.
What have you tried already to fix the issue?
Removed all NVE mods. Checked internet stability (Google fiber, have no connection issues on any other games and never saw a report of packet loss on any test), cleared FiveM Cache, Windows RAM cache, reinstalled FiveM & GTA5.

Image below is a ping/packet loss test.

Error screenshot (if any):
Not applicable.

What did you do to get this issue?
Can happen at any time, under any circumstances unfortunately. Performance metrics from task manager do not lead me to believe this is a hardware issue due to high usage.
The only direct correlation to the problem is the FiveM packet loss reading going up when the issue happens. Not sure if that’s FiveM or the server directly that is the issue.

What server did you get this issue on? Be specific and name some, ‘all of them’ by itself isn’t useful!
PMA is the only server I’ve ever experienced this issue. Have yet to test other servers.

Sorry for the cussing in the video brothers!

Talked to ISP and everything is green on diagnostics. Not sure what I need to tell them to do in order to solve the issue - if they even can.

Any idea about this? Same problem here.

No clue still. VPN works to fix flickering in game but there’s frequent internet interruption that boots twitch stream offline/and disconnects from server.

You are the player or the server owner?

This happens on different servers?

Just a player on a FiveM server, not my server. Don’t play on any other servers.
