I can't look around or aim using mouse. Help?

If you have problems with game, then write here:

I assume your mouse cursor is not locked.
Open in-game menu and press button "Resume" to lock cursor.

I'll try that. Thank you!

Best Game <3

cant log-in anymore,, types 2 letters at once

add auto log-in or guest/non verify acc?

Yes it's known bug in unity engine.

How to understand " anymore"? previously you were able to login?
We already have option to play as Guest. I had to disable this option, because many players break rules.
Auto-login will not help you, since you can't enter password.

yes, for first time

Create account in forum and send me private message. I have idea how to fix this problem.

I managed to play this game on:

Intel Pentium CPU and Intel HD Graphic supported with 4gb of RAM. not bad.

Good job! Really nice game with interesting features.

The main issue for me is the spawn system in DeathMatch,,,
sometimes enemies can spawn at the exact same location.

Keep up the good work :)

It doesn't let you log in on Linux distros. Everytime you type in your password or username, it doubles each letter as one character. (1 = 11) You can't trick the system to recognize it as one letter.

 I even tried making an account with doubled letters/numbers and it still doesn't work. (It would work if I could use the website login for the game, I think)

Is there anyway you can fix this or bypass it with small changes with the login/registration for doubled characters or w/e? (Like remember password/login, or sync with browser/email/social media so you don't have to type in anything  in the actual game)

+Allow people to make their game accounts on the websites (not seperate)?

It works for the first time logins for most people, can't seem to reverse it though.

You can't copy/paste on Linux?

It is bug in unity engine:
After few updates i will switch to 2018.2

Read comments and you will find temporal solution.

(1 edit)

I can copy/paste, I just can't use one letter at a time so I can't type in my username, password, email, verify etc.

EDIT: Couldn't find a solution, I'll just wait till the update. There are some people saying that it still doesn't work with the 2018.2 update

In comments on itch.io (read comments below).

If you can copy/paste then it already solves problem. After registration your username will be saved and you can use password like "aabbccdd", or copy from text document. 

As soon as you copy it onto the game, it doubles the letters/numbers instantly. I can't make a new account with the doubled letters either because of it. 

OneManArmy is calling another person in a game and then killing the other person thats not in the call allowed because MrALand was cross-teaming and it was very unfair

Hard to understand, what are you trying to say here.
If you think that someone is breaking rules, then record video and report in forum.

Hey there! I recently played your game, and I wanna say that this game has a LOT of potential! I would recommend something though... Can you add the settings option in the main menu? (so you wouldn't have to enter a game to change the settings)  (you should add some new weapons too) Keep up the good work! =) 

I also created a video of short gameplay on YT:

it is not sending the verification/code email to me :(

I don't know your code. Random code is generated and sent when you press "Create Account" button.
Do not close the game, because then code will change.
Code is sent via standard email and can arrive after few seconds, or after few hours (usually within 15 minutes).
- always double check if you entered your email correctly.
- check spam folder.

my game not dowloading

another way to install the game: download the itch.io application, similar to steam, enter with your itch.io account, search for skillwarz in the search, now just put to download and play, app link,https://itch.io/app

Good game

Mesmo? o jogo é de graça e você está reclamando sobre o download de 300 mb? Vou colocar o jogo em hd e levá-lo para sua casa, para que você não precise baixá-lo, fala sério!

fucking 2 step verification!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


Addicting game. 

What are the system requirements for the game?

Added in description.

This game is amazing! There is literally only one thing I would like it too have, and that is customizable characters. Maybe you could unlock different character costume parts (gloves, vests, helmet, pants, etc.) when you level up. Just a thought, but it would be cool.

Amazing Job!!


can you make this game stable for 10.8 i cant play the game on my mac

how to understand "stable for 10.8"?
If you have problem, then create topic here:
and provide information about your system.

what i mean is that i doesn't work on 10.8 so can you like mac it work on 10.8


you need to specify what 10.8 is you cant just say 10.8, not everyone uses a mac, stupid

its probably because your mac is trash

mac is 10.8.5

good game , more uodate !!!!!

I'm having a problem where i click the download link for Linux and the download does not start

Then you should contact itch.io support.
To me Linux download link works just fine.

can you make it work for 10.8 mac?

what the fuck is mac

thares a mac os, but there is no10.8 mac retard

then get a windows machine 

Windows is trash

release it on steam plz, too few people in this game

I agree

yeah i agree too

this game is lit as heckin heck

what are your recommended specs? Or have you not tested it with muultiple computers yet?

I recommend one of the PCs that I tested at least for a good experience,

CPU AMD Athlon II X2 270 , RAM 4.00 GB single channel DDR3 ,Graphics 1024MB NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT

You can play with less than this, but this was the least test.

    i think 2 gb ram is good

    I think 2GB of RAM is enough.

    with this configuration I have 120 fps constants.

    well lol I have intel celron 2.16 GHz, 4GB RAM, and 64mb VRAM.. and then intel HD graphics

    I do not think it's going to roll smooth.

    The forums are down so I can't post a bug there. 

    The login screen box won't show up for me.

    It's not a bug.
    Today host had problems. Now everything should work fine.

    when i try to login on linux it types two of the same letter

    If you think that problem is in game (not with your system), then report bug in forum.
    Will see if someone else has this problem.

    Quick solution: copy and paste data in fields.

    same thing happened to me too. Then I launched it with sudo via terminal and everything is okay now.

    How did you launch it with sudo? Can you paste the exact thing? 

    sudo on Linux is same as run as administrator on Windows. You can find tutorials about sudo and terminal on Youtube.

    Fantastic game, great job guys. Game needs more modes and a mini map feature.

    hi im a youtuber plz reply

    What is your youtube, if you're good I'll subscribe.

    The game is super fun i love playing with friends so we made a discord called skillwarz soo could you consider making it the official skillwarz discord server? linkhttps://discord.gg/VrEcW7

    This is a very great game especially when it's free i will take the liberty of telling all my friends about this game ;-)

    Hi, two questions: is there LAN and are there bots (AI)? And if not, can you please add it in a future update. The ability to play offline would be amazing. Thanks.

    Hi, current networking solution doesn't support LAN.
    No, we don't have bots.

    Instead of editing comment you could simply reply my answer.
    It's not possible. As i wrote "current networking solution doesn't support LAN".

    The game is perfect but it need more and ongoing updates to be more complete

    Do you plan on selling the script?

    Really great game btw!!

    Thanks.  No, but if someone will make good offer, then...

    Amazing game man! Just love it! Only problem for me is: The updation method should be better than having to re-download the entire game again even if it is small.


    Auto updater = i have to pay for traffic = game is no longer free.

    Oh I see! Then it is cool. I would prefer that it stays free. Also, are you planning to add a mini-map system? I would love something like the COD mini-maps where the green pulse sets off and the players last known positions are shown for some time.

    I have texture bug everything went purple

    You can report bugs here:
    Take screenshots and provide more info:
    * your PC specs (gpu, cpu)
    * on which maps? restart helps?


    i have a potato pc i5 2400k-nvidia gt420 and 8gb ddr4 i will send a screenshoot

    Hi, So I downloaded the mac version of the game which is a .zip file and when I extracted it only gave me a file with the contents of the game but not the game itself. I don't know what I did wrong. Any help would be great thank you. ( pardon my bad grammar)

    (2 edits)

    Hi, and what happens when you add ".app" after "skillwarz_25_Mac"? By mistake i renamed folder on windows. 

    Or simply download game again.

    (4 edits)

    Ill try that later and when I reinstall it does the same thing. thank you so much for ur help

    (1 edit)

    appeared an update of the game in itch.io / app, are the fixes or is there something new?

    Bug fixes and 7 new TDM maps.

    This game is like butter. Game modes are lacking atm, but if you want visual butter play this game.

    Game is in development.

    As long as you keep spitting butter i'm good with it.
