Street Fighter V and Rollback Netcode 101

Champion Edition not only marked the return of Seth (left) in a body modeled after Juri Han (right,) it heralded certain potential netcode fixes that the playerbase had been eagerly anticipating.
Since GGPO (Good Game Peace Out) is a commonly implemented kit for rollback netcode, it’s often synonymous with rollback in the same way “Band-Aid” and “bandage” are interchangable.
Code Mystics recently implemented their rollback netcode solution in the modern release of SNK’s fighting game, Garou: Mark of the Wolves.
There were a few followup tweets, but Ono never clarified what his team would exactly be focusing on with regards to a fix.
Mauvecow works in an official capacity on the GGPO implementation for Them’s Fightin’ Herds, and also helped with a fanmade implementation for Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R for a time.
Roll’s back. Get it?
