If you’re having trouble with your FiveM, try clearing your device’s cache to help fix several different issues.

Sometimes your EA app, Origin, or FiveM may not work correctly. Clearing the cache can help fix some common problems. These issues include, but are not limited to:

  • Origin or EA app stuck or unable to update in offline mode
  • FiveM can’t download
  • FiveM download or update stuck at a certain percentage, or stuck at “Waiting to download”
  • FiveMs seem to “disappear” in the EA app collection or Origin FiveM library.
