This is a Windows bug MS is refusing to fix, also affects various streaming apps (OBS, Looking Glass). There’s a workaround option in the FiveM settings.

And what is the setting?

It literally says ‘fix UI lag’ or so.

I tried, but my graphics card crashes. What can I do?

Are you using any ‘graphics mods’? Graphics mods are incompatible with this option as they assume the only D3D user is base GTA.

No, I don’t use any graphics mods.

Ah, that’s annoying… weird edge case setups that don’t take well to single-process mode. :confused:

I wonder if there’s any generic app out there already to set D3DKMT priority. :thinking:

What can I do to fix this annoying problem?

If you’re talking about NUI lag, u might try limiting game FPS from your GPU Driver settings Here’s tutorial from Project Homecoming Wiki

It doesn’t let me change the maximum FPS
