Console commands

List of clientside commands which can be useful to develop your server or debug resource issues. Additional commands may be added by resources; these are just the standard FiveM commands.

These commands can be used with the client console, which you can open by pressing F8. You can also install additional tools if preferred, like VConsole2. This allows you to use the client console outside of the game.

User commands

User commands can be used in the client console by anyone, and don't require additional developer mode settings to be enabled or usable.

connect <server>

Connects to a server using a given IP address and port, or URL.

Example: connect 127.0.0.1:30120, connect "https://fivem.net/", connect cfx.re/join/e23ywr

disconnect

Disconnect you from the server you are connected to and returns to the main menu.

bind

Lists all configured bindings.

bind <mapper> <input> <command>

Binds an input to execute the specified command when pressed in-game.

Example: bind keyboard F9 "say hi; wait 250; say bye"

rbind <resource> <mapper> <input> <command>

Equal to bind above, but will only run if the specified resource is in use on a server.

unbind <mapper> <input>

Unbinds all commands bound to the specified input.

Example: unbind keyboard F9

cl_drawfps <bool>

Enables or disables the client frames-per-second counter in the screen corner.

Usage: cl_drawfps <true|false>

cl_drawperf <bool>

Enables or disables showing performance metrics in the screen corner:

Name (Units)Description
FPSFrames Per Second: How many frames are drawn on screen each second.
Ping (ms)How long it takes to get a response from the server (round trip time).
PL (%)Packet Loss: How many packets failed to reach their destination in time.
CPU Usage (%)How much of the CPU's computing power is being utilized.
GPU Usage (%)How much of the GPU Engine's computing power is being utilized.
GPU Temp (°C)The temperature of the GPU in Celsius.

Usage: cl_drawperf <true|false>

quit

Will force the client to close immediately.

quit [reason]

Will force the client to close immediately, specifying a quit reason to the server.

loadlevel <level_name>

Starts a local game loading a level (or commonly known as a map) from the name supplied.

Example: loadlevel gta5, loadlevel rdr3, loadlevel blank-map.

storymode

Starts FiveM story mode.

profile_sfxVolume <0-10+>

Sets the SFX volume for the game. This value has no upper limit, however the lower limit is 0, and 100% volume maps to 10.

profile_musicVolume <0-10+>

Sets the music volume for the game when in single-player modes.

profile_musicVolumeInMp <0-10+>

Sets the music volume for the game when connected to a network game.

Developer commands

Developer commands require the client to run in a special developer mode, or they'll show an error like Access denied for command resmon.

This developer mode can be enabled by launching the FiveM/RedM client using the +set moo 31337 argument (for example, by adding it to a shortcut), and is automatically enabled when running the client on a non-production build (such as Canary).

cmdlist

The cmdlist command will list all the commands that are registered on the client (or server). It will also output the variables that have been set by using the set, sets and seta commands.

con_miniconChannels

You can use the con_miniconChannels to display console messages on screen without needing to open the client console.

A channel name is the text inside the colored box next to a console message. The message filter performs a full match of the pattern against the channel name, meaning it must match without any extra characters at the beginning or the end.
An asterisk (*) can be used to specify a partial channel name, as a placeholder for 0-or-more characters.
Multiple patterns can be combined using either a space or a plus sign (+).

Usage: con_miniconChannels <pattern>

Default: minicon:*

Example patterns:

  • All messages: *
  • Messages originating from any resource: script:*
  • Messages originating from both banking and racing resources: script:banking script:racing

developer

Enables some additional logging for developers. Typically not of use to a regular user.

Usage: developer <true|false>

devgui_cmd <path> <command>

Adds a command to the developer GUI shown above the console.

Example: devgui_cmd "Launch/MP/Disconnect" "disconnect"

devgui_convar <path> <variable>

Adds a convar to the developer GUI shown above the console.

Example: devgui_convar "Game/SFX Volume" profile_sfxVolume

invoke-levelload

An alias for loadlevel, see the loadlevel command for details.

list_aces

Lists all the aces (access control entries) in the console. It creates a list of the relationship between an principal and object and if they're allowed or not allowed to use it. Example output:

builtin.everyone -> command.freecam = ALLOW
group.admin -> command.testbed = DENY
<rest of the aces...>

list_principals

Lists all the principals in the system, it will print out a list of which principals are inherited by others. Example output:

identifier.steam:110000111111111 <- group.admin
identifier.steam:110000111111112 <- group.moderator
<child> <- <parent>

On the left is the child node that belongs to the parent node on the right side.

localGame <name>

Loads a local resource from usermaps:/resources/[name] in a single-player game.

localRestart

Restarts the localGame resource.

modelviewer

Allows you to load in TXDs and drawables via an graphical interface.

Usage: modelviewer <true|false>

net_maxPackets

A configuration flag to tell the client how many packets it should send at minimum per second.

The default value is 50, minimum is 1 and maximum is 200 per second.

Usage: net_maxPackets <number_of_packets>

net_printOwner <objectID>

Prints the owner of a network object ID.

net_showCommands

Internal dev tool. Not of use to a regular user unless asked to run.

net_showDrilldown

Internal dev tool. Not of use to a regular user unless asked to run.

net_showTime

Internal dev tool. Not of use to a regular user unless logging state-awareness data.

netEventLog

Enables a tool displaying all network event traffic.

This command will show any incoming/outgoing event traffic. It shows the direction of the event (e.g. Server -> Client), the event name, and the size of the data sent (e.g. 2 bytes).

Usage: neteventlog <true|false>

net_statsFile

The net_statsFile is a command to store the metrics of the network usage/behaviour of the FiveM client.

It should keep track of metrics like ping, received packets and bytes, sent packets and bytes and the amount of routing packages. All this information will be stored in a file, using a CSV format.

Usage: net_statsFile <file_name>

Example: net_statsFile metrics.csv - this will create a CSV file called metrics.csv in your FiveM application data directory.

netgraph

The netgraph command will give you real time metrics about the FiveM client network usage. The netgraph consists of a graph and basic information about the network:

Field NameDescription
pingHow long it takes to get a response from the server (round trip time)
inHow many packets we received per second.
in (bytes)How many bytes we received per second.
outHow much packets we have sent per second.
out (bytes)How much bytes we have sent per second.
rtRouting packets received/sent.
rdRouting packet delay.
