Guilty Gear Strive | Best PC Settings for FPS

The 2.5D Genre gets an overhaul with the 2D/3D hybrid graphics in the Guilty Gear Strive. Speaking of graphics, in this guide, I will be covering the best settings for the game. The new artistic improvements in character animations really take your breath away in this part of Guilty Gear. 

I am personally enjoying the game quite a bit. Credit goes to the storyline which the game follows, the characters’ uniqueness, and the online experience as well. Let’s take a look at the tweaks that you need to do to make it shine more!

Best PC Settings

  • RESOLUTION: I Kept this setting at 1920×1080. Ideally, you should keep such settings at their native to get the most out of your system and the monitor itself. For multiple-screen setups, I would preferably go for the primary screen with native resolution.
  • WINDOW MODE: This should be kept at Fullscreen to get the ideal results. If you minimize the game often, I would suggest a borderless window setting for this.
  • SCALING RESOLUTION: Keep this at 100 to avoid any kind of glitchy or broken graphics. you can also try the 80 value if you are facing frame issues.
  • ANTI-ALIAS: I keep this medium. This provides a good balance of smooth edges and good visuals with performance.
  • POST PROCESS: This should be kept at Medium for low-end systems. I used a low-end system for this test, hence I tried to keep these settings at medium or low.
  • TEXTURE QUALITY: Medium is the one to go for in this setting.
  • SHADOW QUALITY: Shadows generally consume a lot of resources to render. I always suggest playing at Low Shadow Quality, especially for medium to low-end systems.
  • EFFECT QUALITY: I kept this High. Since this game has lots of effects and elements surrounding that, I tried the high settings. It gives you a decent visual experience without taking up much of your system resources.
  • ANTI-ALIAS QUALITY: This the quality for the anti-alias render. I kept this at FXAA. I prefer most of my games at FXAA. You can call that a personal choice.
  • MOTION BLUR: I would recommend that you keep this off. For most parts, this would hinder your online experience. You can turn this on for offline gameplay, but it takes up decent FPS to do so. Hence I would turn it off most of the time.
  • AMBIENT OCCLUSION: Keep this Off. Since I did not find much of a difference in keeping it on, this one becomes optional. My personal preference would be to turn it off.

Here is a couple of in-game images showing the settings as well:

My System Specs Used To Test

OS: Windows 10 (64-bit OS) | Processor: Intel Core i3 8100 | Memory: 16 GB RAM DDR4 | Graphics: GeForce GTX 1050TI OC | DirectX: Version 11 | Storage: 1TB HDD 7200RPM

I Tested this game for 60FPS at 1080p. This benchmark is at par with the benchmark of PS5 consoles and should give you a decent idea about how it would run on such a system if it releases there in the future.


Results and Final Conclusion

As I mentioned earlier, the goal was to get a constant 60FPS at 1080p. I managed to get that consistently even at intense fights and combos. The game is very optimized in itself, so you should not have much trouble running it even at lower-end systems.

By the lower end, I mean anything like an AMD FX series and 750TI or something similar. If you want more performance out of the game, dial down the anti-alias to low settings and the qualities to low as well. It should give you enough juice and graphics to enjoy the game quite well.

Leave your thoughts down in the comments and I will reply to them as soon as I can. Thanks for going through the post and I will see you soon with more!
