What did you do to get this issue? I was playing on a server and got messaged on Discord by someone which caused the game to lag and put me into solo session. I later found out that this is caused whenever I alt tab and do something in another programm or if I even press a hotkey for mute on discord.

Also add what you already tried so far. I’ve tried to change Vulkan to Dx12 since it was supposed to help in some cases however it did not. Same goes for changing from fullscreen to borderless. I’ve cleared cache and reinstalled the whole RedM however that didn’t change anythings as well. I thought it could have been caused by the server however the same thing happened to me on another servers.

What helped me from the beginning was disabling notifications on discord so they would no show up on my screen and cause me to lag however it was at the time I did not know doing anything outside of RedM would cause it to lag.

Another thing I’ve noticed is that whenever the game freezes, the task manager shows that the CPU required by the game drops from 75% to 0% and then back to 75%.
