Sigh. Did Intel change something in firmware updates that broke the affinity workaround we applied a few releases ago, or do you maybe have some weird core configuration enabled (e.g. disabling the E-cores? I’m not seeing the usual hybrid CPU trigger in the logs here which is a bit suspect)

It’d be nice if Intel would document whatever the fuck it is that they changed to be incoherent across cores publicly since they clearly have this information but aren’t sharing it.

Hi,ho to fix this? Im noob ;/

I haven’t touched any settings regarding the cpu, all default

Nice, so Intel’s new BIOS updates broke our fix then. Amazing.

I have latest bios on Z690 MSI A DDR4 and i cant play Fivem ;( Way of SCRLK not working ;/

Yeah, we’ll investigate this sometime soon, hopefully. Got to reconnect the Intel machine and update + re-verify the fix. Hopefully will be done for next week’s production update. :confused:

We have to wait … I see that more and more people have a problem with this after the release of new processors. 12400f and more …


Oh, this probably breaks our detection for the compatibility fix.

I just have this processor … :[

Even though the 12400f does not have E-CORES, turning on the LEGACY GAME COMPATIBILITY mode in the BIOS allows you to turn on FIVEM but then returns an error after a while.

U found way to fix it ?
