Saiko no sutoka: How to Disable Unity Analytics

Quick guide to disabling Unity Analytics in Saiko no Sutoka

 

About

Saiko no Sutoka contains Unity Analytics and will, by default, send analytics data to Unity when you have it open. This behaviour probably isn’t intentional as Unity Analytics is enabled by default, and is not easy to disable unless you pay for Unity Pro.

For Users

Navigate to %appdata%\LocalLow\Habupain\Saiko no sutoka\Unity, then open the folder within. This may either be a UUID or begin with local., inside you will find another folder called Analytics.

Open the config file using a text editor such as notepad or notepad++, and paste the following inside:

{
    "analytics": { "enabled": false },
    "connect": {
        "limit_user_tracking": true,
        "player_opted_out": true,
        "enabled": false
    },
    "performance": { "enabled": false },
    "dynamic": {
        "coreBusinessMetrics": {
            "enabled": false,
            "timeToWaitForUserInfoS": 60
        },
        "analytics": {
            "shouldCollectAutomation": false,
            "timeToWaitForUserInfoS": 60
        }
    }
}
Then, save the file and close your text editor. Now, right click the config file, click Properties, and check Read-only. This should prevent Unity from overriding the changes you’ve made.

While this will disable most of Unity Analytics, Unity will still attempt to phone home when you initially start the game.

Additional Steps

As the aforementioned patch does not completely prevent Unity from phoning home, you may also wish to look into blocking cdp.cloud.unity3d.com and config.uca.cloud.unity3d.com using an ad-blocking tool such as Adguard for Windows[adguard.com]Pi Hole[pi-hole.net], or by manually editing your HOSTS file[www.howtogeek.com].

For Developers

From my quick research, unless you’re paying for Unity Pro[forum.unity.com], there is basically no “official” way to disable Unity Analytics. If you want to go down the rabbit hole of ripping Unity Analytics out of your game project, see this thread on the Unity Forums[forum.unity.com]

Thanks to c41c for his great guide, all credit to his effort. you can also read the original guide from Steam Community. enjoy the game.
