GORTS is a simple scoreboard overlay for fighting games. The default design is compatible with Street Fighter 6, Tekken 8, KOF XV, and Guilty Gear Strive.
It's a rewritten successor of ORTS. This version is written in Go and Tcl/Tk, communicating via goold old pipes, the way Bell Labs intended.
GORTS is heavily inspired by StreamControl but has a bunch of opinionated quality-of-life improvements:
Visible diff & easy undo: Changes not yet applied to stream are highlighted and can be discarded with the Discard button.
Player name + country import: Currently supports start.gg. Player data is saved as a csv file which can then be updated manually using any (decent) spreadsheet editor.
Flexible player name suggestion as you type: unlike StreamControl, you don't need to care about whitespaces, dots, dashes, or any non-alphanumeric characters.
Cross-platform: Supports Windows & Linux. macOS support is unplanned but if you really need it, I'm open to contract work.
You can download from either of:
Just unzip then:
(we basically assume
tclsh is available from $PATH)
gorts from the unzipped directory.
Proper packaging is not planned because I only develop on Linux and stream on Windows. If you want to contribute then I'm happy to give pointers though.
GORTS is written in the Go programing language, which suffers from false positives more often than usual. See https://go.dev/doc/faq#virus:
Why does my virus-scanning software think my Go distribution or compiled binary is infected?
This is a common occurrence, especially on Windows machines, and is almost always a false positive. Commercial virus scanning programs are often confused by the structure of Go binaries, which they don't see as often as those compiled from other languages.
So no, I'm not trying to hackerman you. If you're really concerned, feel free to audit the code and compile GORTS yourself. There's really not that much code.
See "How to use":
If you want to customize the look, open up the web folder and go wild. You only need basic HTML/CSS/JS knowledge to work on it. No fancy frameworks.
If you really need a custom design but can't implement it yourself, I'm open to contract work. Contact me at email@example.com.
Can cross-compile from any unix-like. I'm cheating a little though, by downloading a prebuilt tcl executable for Windows, and just assume Linux users have already installed tcl/tk.
make dist/GORTS-Linux.zip make dist/GORTS-Windows.zip
See Makefile for details.

Tcl options on Windows:
Web server should probably read state from memory instead of disk (state.json). Sounds like premature optimization though.
A line-based wire format for IPC is simple, but inefficient: binary data (e.g.
geticon) needs to be base64-encoded then decoded on the other side. I have
an experimental netstrings-based
version on the
netstring branch, but it's more awkward to implement in tcl
due to its binary pipe convention (defaults to iso8859-1 encoding).
Implementing netstrings was a fun exercise but, again, sounds like a premature
optimization in this use case. Keeping it simple for now.
Just like ORTS, the out-of-the-box design in GORTS was done by hismit.
