Getting Started With FiveM!

Recommended Posts

Welcome to this tutorial on how to get, and properly set up FiveM to allow you to connect to our server.


Download FiveM

First step is downloading FiveM. That is simple, you can get it from:


Download the client (FiveM.exe) file to a folder you wish FiveM to install to! DO NOT!!! put the file in your GTA V folder. This must be in it's own folder!


Installing FiveM

Once your download has completed open the file! The installer will run and download a few files. Close to the end the installer asks you to select the folder that has GTA V in it. For Steam users this will be:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto V
Others will need to locate their install folder, but as you can see it just needs the ROOT folder!
Connecting to Servers
Once you open FiveM and the game has started, just click on Servers, give the list a few seconds to populate, then click "Host Name" this filters servers by Host Name making searching for servers easier (If you didn't give the list a few seconds to fully populate, filtering the list stops the scan and not all servers might be listed, if you are having problems finding a server then click the Refresh symbol in the top right to refresh the list again).
Once you've found your server just click on it to join! Be careful it only takes one click, remember you don't need to click on the list to scroll through it, just use your scroll wheel!
You can also directly connect to servers (Great when the master server list is offline due to a FiveM outage). Just click on direct connect and enter the IP:PORT and when the server is found click to connect. You can also press F8 and type in connect ip:port replace ip with the server ip and port with the servers port (default is 30120).
That's all there is to it! Have fun!
