Guilty Gear Strive optimization guide – Fix Lag and FPS Drops

It is very obvious that Guilty Gear Strive is a fighting game. And fps is something that is really important in online PvP fighting games. In a place, where situations can change in a blink of an eye. Players obviously wouldn’t want issues like lag, fps drops or stuttering to ruin the game for them.

Therefore, if you are a low-end PC user, and not getting good enough performance. Here is something you can do.

How to fix the performance issues

The first thing you need to do is look for the Appdata folder in your PC. If the AppData folder is hidden for you, here is how to make it visible:

  1. Open any folder on your PC. It can be a new folder or an existing folder.
  2. Click on the View option at the top of the folder window
  3. There you will find a setting called “Hidden items”
  4. Check the box beside it

Now you can go back to C:\Users\Your username. And there you will find the AppData folder.

Alternatively, what you can do is, you can type %appdata% on your Windows search bar and search for the folder directly. The folder won’t appear unless you type the whole phrase (%appdata%). Once you do that, you’ll be directed to the “Roaming” folder. Go back from here into the “Appdata” folder.

For that location, here is where you need to go: Appdata > Local > GGST > Saved > Config > WindowsNoEditor

Inside the WindowsNoEditor folder, you should see a bunch of .ini files. Open the file called ‘Scalability.ini’. Now and copy and paste the following lines into the file:

[[email protected]] r.MSAA.CompositingSampleCount=1

[[email protected]] r.SkeletalMeshLODBias=5
r.ViewDistanceScale=0.0

[[email protected]] r.ShadowQuality=0
r.Shadow.CSM.MaxCascades=0
r.Shadow.MaxResolution=0
r.Shadow.RadiusThreshold=0.0
r.Shadow.DistanceScale=0.0
r.AllowLandscapeShadows=0

[[email protected]] r.MotionBlurQuality=0
r.AmbientOcclusionMipLevelFactor=0
r.AmbientOcclusionRadiusScale=0
r.RenderTargetPoolMin=200
r.BloomQuality=0
r.Upscale.Quality=0
r.Filter.SizeScale=0
r.Tonemapper.Quality=0

[[email protected]] r.Streaming.MipBias=3
r.MaxAnisotropy=0
r.Streaming.PoolSize=800

[[email protected]] r.ParticleLightQuality=0

This what it should look like after you have pasted the lines:

Once you are done, save it. Now right-click on the Scalability.ini file, click on properties and check the box beside “Read-only”. This will prevent the game from making changes to the file.

Additionally, you can use the following graphics settings to get some extra performance.
