Limiting FiveM to 60FPS without using Vsync

The FiveM devs decided that Rivatuner was harmful to their program and decided to block it. This guide goes over alternative means to limit FiveM to 60FPS without using VSync or affecting other games.

This below methods work for Windowed Borderless and Fullscreen.

NVidia Inspector

(Thanks Firecul!)

  1. Download the latest version of Nvidia Inspector from: External Link
  2. Extract the package.
  3. Run NVidiaProfileInspectorDmW.exe.
  4. Press the "Create New Profile" button.
  5. Enter "FiveM" as the profile name.
  6. Press the "Add Application to current profile" button.
  7. Locate and select both FiveM.exe and FiveM_GTAProcess.exe. Default FiveM installation folder:
    %localappdata%\FiveM\
    %localappdata%\FiveM\FiveM.app\cache\subprocess

    (copy paste above into your windows explorer address bar)
    If you've installed FiveM to a different different folder, replace %localappdata% with your installation path.

  8. Input your desired FPS limit. Only the options in the below screenshot need to be adjusted:
  9. Hit the "Apply Changes" button.
  10. You may close Nvidia Profile Inspector.
  11. You should now be locked to 60FPS in-game.

Note: This may not work if you have existing Nvidia Control Panel profiles set for FiveM.

AMD Radeon Chill

(Thanks Freekill!)

  1. Go into Radeon settings and under the gaming tab click
  2. In Global Settings, activate
  3. Press the Back Button and click and create a profile for FiveM_GTAProcess.exe
  4. Locate and select FiveM_GTAProcess.exe. Default FiveM installation folder:
    %localappdata%\FiveM\
    %localappdata%\FiveM\FiveM.app\cache\subprocess

    (copy paste above into your windows explorer address bar)
    If you've installed FiveM to a different different folder, replace %localappdata% with your installation path.

  5. Select the Profile you've created for FiveM_GtaProcess.exe
  6. Scroll down and activate the Chill setting, set the FPS Min and Max to 60FPS.
  7. If you've done this correctly, you should hear 3 beeps when you start FiveM.
  8. 2 beeps if you've turned it off via the hotkey

Using Steam to display FPS

Steam has a built in FPS counter you may use to show current in-game FPS.

  1. Go into Steam Settings.
  2. Under the "In-Game" tab.
  3. Tick "Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game".
  4. Under the "In-Game FPS counter" dropdown, select where you would like the counter to appear.
  5. Toggle "High Contrast Mode" if you would want the counter to be more visible.
  6. Click "OK" and relaunch FiveM.
