Re-enabling Shadowplay support for FiveM to enable in game capture and recording

Shadowplay Guide

NVidia ShadowPlay is the easiest way to record and clip your gameplay for sharing. We reccomend players run recording software in case of needing to report a rule breaker or provide a demonstration of a bug/issue etc. Alternatives include, OBS and more.

Shadowplay is automatically disabled when launching FiveM, you will need to make a change to your FiveM config to prevent this from happening.

Step 1. Locate FiveM Directory

Generally FiveM will be installed in the local appdata folder, press Windows + R keys and then type %localappdata%\FiveM\ in the run box and press Ok to open the folder.

If the above folder does not exist, you can follow this guide to find your FiveM folder.

Step 2. Edit CitizenFX.ini

Open the CitizenFX.ini file in a text editor by double clicking on it, at the bottom of the file paste DisableNVSP=0 on a new line.

Your file should look similar to the above but will have some minor variations depending on where your game is installed, etc.

Step 3. Save the file and re-launch FiveM

Thats it, simply save the file and relaunch FiveM, ShadowPlay will no longer be disabled when starting the game.
Note: You may need to enable ShadowPlay once in the GeForce settings, follow this guide for details on how to do so.
