Performance tweaks for the Low End PC
By ShimazakiD
Hi there, as you might know, this is the kind of post that is dedicated for the people with low end pc's

Back Up your files before editing it or replacing it, as if you don't, you might have to download the game again and that is a pain in the♥♥♥♥♥ so, be carefull with those ini files.
About The Specs
First off, i'll introduce to my pc specs, the potato masher which i made the experiment with.

It is a laptop HP pavilion G7 series
AMD A8 4500m APU Cuad Core 1.9 Ghz with turbo up to 2.8 Ghz (But in Task mannager never goes more than 2.3 Ghz on turbo clock speed)
AMD Radeon HD 7640g
Ram 4 Gig ddr3 at 1066 Mhz

The Key Parameter
Well, as crappy as this laptop is, and with the config i'll upload, the games runs at 56 fps, but fluctuates between 51 to 59 fps depending of the stage.

The file that needs to be tweaked is BaseSystemSettings.ini, that is on your Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator directory, under REDGame, then config folder

Steam\Steamapps\common\GUILTY GEAR Xrd -REVELATOR-\REDGame\Config

As known in the other guide on Xrd Sigh by DevaL, many effects play an important role in gaining FPS, but the ace in the hole is one key value, that one is...


This parameter, when changed to false will boost performance up to 10 fps, so, keep this in mind, the shadows below characters, also no Bloom for some reason (even if you leave it Bloom=True in the config file section.....but as you might have a low end PC, it will be a minimal set back.

Play with the rest
There are other parametters that you can play with, some like resolution, bloom, ambient occlusion, in fact, many of this setting can be turn to false in orther to gain minimal fps increments, but is up to you, to decide which ones will make a decent benefit for you.

Some of those are.


Those are in my ini file alreaddy set to false so, no worries to play with those.

There is one parameter called DynamicLights, if you set that to False, The Stage floor will disapear (thanks to Shadowlet for the tip)

A note here: after saving the file, it is best to do right click and propieties to the file and set it as read only file, as if you have the game in 2 compurers, the ini will be overwriten the next time you play the game in your potato masher....

Keep in mind that in the game, you can go to option, Display Settings and set the first option (Image quality settings) to "performance", the game will look more pixelated but it will help to squeeze 1 to 5 more FPS.
The tweaked file.
That's all folks
This will not be a super guide, but i'm glad to help with this little discovery, and i hope this will be worth it for other guys like me, with crappy laptops XD.

Here a video testing my tweaks on the machine mentioned before

And, thanks for your attention.

I might have not the best english around, but if this guide helps you, then, i can't be more happy for it.

@baronrider may be your specs are pretty low for this game to work

Yeah, I had this game for a long time, and my former laptop got stolen, so now I have my close-to-being-obsolete desktop. I did what you recommended on -SIGN-, and it still doesn't work. What should I do?

@lol, you will have to try youself, as i did not touch many options, aside from the ones in my .ini file.
lol Jan 26 @ 11:54pm 
are there no other options that cause something like this?
ShimazakiD  [author] Jan 26 @ 11:46pm 
@lol is in my guide, the one responsible for deleting the floor is DynamicLights=FALSE, change to true for having the floor again
Shadowlet Jan 26 @ 11:35pm 
@lol Deleted floors greaty improve your online fps. For some reason offline mode is fine with regular floors.
lol Jan 26 @ 10:35pm 
think you could post a full list of settings that won't completely fuck over the game? i somehow deleted backgrounds and floors last time

@Voltz, i doub you can run this game with those specs!, as you are very low on ram and processor and gt210 is a very very low end card even for the game standars
voltz Jan 12 @ 11:20am 
thinkign about grabbing this game, ican run the latest blazblue on 60 fps after disabling anti aliasing , specs : 2 gb ram, nvidia 210 , core 2 duo , can i run this game too ?
Mecanicoo!! Jan 8 @ 4:49pm
