Essential improvements[edit]

To enable online play, the third-party netplay patch is essential.


Third-party netplay patch

Netplay patch - Currently hosted on the Wingdreams website.
The patch uses a lobby system, whereby players can idle, watch matches or challenge others. In addition, players can be blocked if need be, by selecting their name and blocking as necessary. No communication is possible, although players can add their own personalized message in the 'edit message' section of the netplay utility (ggxxnet_config.exe).
Patch install instructions[citation needed]
  1. The Japanese version of Guilty Gear XX #Reload must be installed.
  2. Extract the contents of the netplay patch in the Guilty Gear XX 'Reload folder.
  3. Open ggxxnet_config.exe to set your player name, ensure '' is in the Lobby Script/Text Address box and then open the main ggxx.exe file.
  4. Go to Options, then turn 'Short Cut' to ON.
  5. Save, then return to the main menu.
  6. You can now use the network and replay features.
