Totsugeki Save

Guilty Gear Strive Proxy for faster loading screens.

Project README

totsugeki ? Builds GitHub release Twitter Follow

As of the Bridget patch (v1.21), Totsugeki is no longer necessary. GGST now properly does keepalives after over a year of waiting ?. Unga-bunga still provides a speedup. Rating-Update should continue to work.

Guilty Gear Strive Proxy for faster loading screens.

Totsugeki lets you totsugeki past the Strive connection screen.

Quickstart

  1. Download (All Downloads)
  2. Run totsugeki.exe
  3. ?

Removing Totsugeki is as simple as deleting the executable and launching the game normally.

Features

  • 3-4x Speedup compared to vanilla Strive. 6x+ speedup with *Unga-Bunga enabled.
  • No installation or messing with system files. Just download and run.
  • No administrator permissions needed.
  • *100% transparent: Sends data bit-for-bit the same as vanilla Strive. No stat or lobby inconsistencies.

* See Unga-Bunga/Unsafe Speedups. Unga-Bunga/Unsafe Speedups makes GGST much faster, but makes Totsugeki no longer transparent and may cause other issues.

Advanced Usage

(Supported in v0.1.0+)

You can disable any functionality of Totsugeki by adding -no-<feature> as an argument to totsugeki.exe. For example C:\Users\user\Downloads\totsugeki.exe -no-launch will no longer launch GGST.

Valid options:

  -help
        This help text.
  -no-launch
        Don't launch GGST. Useful if you want to launch GGST through other means.
  -no-patch
        Don't patch GGST with proxy address.
  -no-proxy
        Don't start local proxy. Useful if you want to run your own proxy.
  -no-close
        Don't automatically close totsugeki alongside GGST. (v1.0.0+)
  -no-update
        Don't automatically update totsugeki if there's a new version. (v1.4.0+)
  -unga-bunga
        Enable all unsafe speedups for maximum speed. Please read https://github.com/optix2000/totsugeki/blob/dev/UNSAFE_SPEEDUPS.md (v1.2.0+)
  -version
        Print the version number and exit.

The easiest way to do this would be to create a shortcut to totsugeki.exe and add the argument on the shortcut.

The technical nitty gritty

GGST makes a new TCP connection and a new TLS connection every API call it makes. And it makes hundreds of them in the title screen.

Totsugeki solves this by proxying all API requests through a keepalive connection.

What this means is instead of doing 4 round trips (TCP + TLS + HTTP) for each API call, it only needs to do 1 (HTTP only). This shortens the loading time by a factor of FOUR! For example, if you live in the EU and have ~300ms ping to the GGST servers, you usually see something like 300ms * (1 TCP round trip + 2 TLS round trips + 1 HTTP Request round trip) = 1.2 seconds per API call.

This multiplied across all 127 API calls needed to get to the main menu means it takes a whopping 152 seconds (2.5 minutes) to load into GGST.

With Totsugeki, this is brought down to a mere 38 seconds.

This has added bonus of reducing GGST server load, as TLS negotiation is one of the most CPU intensive tasks today.

Thanks to u/TarballX for doing the initial research on why GGST takes so long to connect.
