how to run the game in linux 

the extrated the file but un able to run the game

how do you update?

Delete old version and download new.

And if you use itch app, then game will update automatically.

One Man Army

How about same rank people play the game?

Playing a 1 ranker with 50th ranker is of no use. Any limit you can put to favor noobs like me who enjoy playing a bit everyday

Also, please make new maps, old maps getting boring now

When you play, how many thousand players you see online? You should not answer.. simply use your brain for a second.

You are right. In best case scenario there are 20-25 players online in the same time. Sometime not more than 4 or 5.

Custom Keybinds?

In Settings

is this multiplayer?


OneManArmy i love this game so far. really nice maps as well.

i've got an idea, myabe change the weapon menu similar to battlfield or something or like an menu where you can click your attachments, it seems easier to use (for me)

Pls people reply what you think yourself!

It requires rework of whole menu system. It is planned in future.

oh, nice to hear its plammed om te future, i like this one, the only thing is that if you click one more by accident you have to go all the way around again. its the only thing i can think of right now.  like i said i love the game

Also how hard would it be to add a battle royale mode?? We are really lacking that genre for linux..

Simply not possible with current networking solution.

This game is really good! Great Job!! I wondered whether it would be simple to add the vehicles that you have in your fps engine, to some of the maps/gamemodes on this game? That would be really fun.....


Put in another link for me please? because I'm having trouble downloading this site.

Put in mediafire please?

It takes me already 4+ hours to make all builds and upload.
You should ask itch support why you can't download files.

could you create an Australian region please?iCant play with good ping

will be added in next update.

hey guys if you have a Mac you can go into finder and right click it, you may have to put in a password but it will launch

Hello, I would like to know why, when I try to download, the game is showing "Failed - Forbidden" when it is almost finished downloading. I'm from Brazil, why?

(1 edit)

Hi, you should ask this question to itch.io support.
If you can't download game, it's not my fault.
I am only using their service.

You can try downloading the game via app https://itch.io/app

Would you like to put it on some other site and send me the link to download it?

Problem must be on your side, since nobody else has problem with downloading. Simply download app.

this is bloody bullshit! this is the 4th update within less than  a month or so. You have to stop forcing us to download these patches in order to play. stop bringing a new one out every 2 weeks and get the other versions in better condition to last longer. it is so damn annoying! you need to do a better job at making an acceptable and stable version of the game without all these mistakes from different patches. you are loosing your customer base. im pissed. I just log in and want to play but nope! next time, triple check your programming skills before you finalise this weeks version ok! I am not downloading another next week! unacceptable. 


Game is IN DEVELOPMENT. I have to fix bugs, add new stuff and make some adjustemnts/improvements. You are angry on me for "working on game/making game better". I have no words... please don't answer and simply leave.

I wasn't able to launch it, i tried the 64, and 86 version, but it says the file was damaged or in an unknown format.

When you tried to extract from archive? Download latest version of winrar, or winzip.
Or better install itch.io app to download/install/launch game via app. It will be easier for you.

Ok, then. I'll try that.

best game

wait so your telling me that you can play this game at 100fps on a low end pc?!?

on low settings

Add a campaign please!

Not planned.

Why? it would definitely make the game bigger!

I think answer is obvious. It will take years to make campaign, since i am working alone. Not even talking about expenses.

Dude I have unity I can help! no payment needed! Also if there ever will be I probably would put it on youtube! So I am some what making a deal with you... get a campaign on game or zombies and I will show your game on youtube!

deal :D

How many years experience in game development?
And how many subs you have?

just don't steal the game of him (im sure you won't :) )

I just downloaded the game on my MacBook and the update before had no problems, but this update I can't bind my shoot and aim down sights to my mouse buttons

You don't have to bind inputs after every update. All inputs, classes and settings are saved.

If something is not working then create topic here: https://skillwarz.com
and explain in details what you are doing and what happens (if possible, record video).

How many people are on the servers in one day?

It depends on the time of day, it can be 15-20 people and 30 times on average.

The game is rough around the edges but lots of fun! Hope it gets more players.

How do I play on a custom map? Can I just transfer the map file?


i know Y is how u chat but when ever I do it doesn't show 

How to change my name in Skillwarz?

Username can't be changed.

I cant play ive been waiting over 3 days for a confirmation code.

A week ago requirement to confirm email was removed. So, what are you waiting?

nice, i like thise, cool game, 5 stars of 5

Can this game make it to steam? I think it will be a huge increase in players and popularity.

Read this topic:



I am having a problem. My verification code won't send to my email. I have definitely writ my email right because I copied and pasted my email. I have checked Spam folder and it's not there. I've been waiting for at least 6 days now and still hasn't sent to me.

You must have some sort of bug.


Fate Studios

i think that he removed the email verification feature. Redownload the newest version and try it

There is no email authentication process anymore, in the recent update he got rid of it. Also, if you had been waiting for 6 days for that email it still wouldn't have worked, you needed to keep the game open otherwise you would've had to try and send another email

Okay, thank you for the reply.


I keep getting weird textures while i'm playing, in both maps and guns. I mean like weird pink and other color textures.


Integrated GPU (HD graphics)? then you should buy dedicated GPU.

No, I do have a dedicated gpu. Can you add a setting where you can toggle the reflections?


what graphics card you have? model?
If setting quality to "Low" doesn't fix your problem, then problem is not in reflections.

Thanks for replying. My gpu is a Nvidia Quadro fx1800. I also tried setting the quality to low and the textures are still weird.


But this card is not for gaming. I have 2nd gen HD graphics, so i will do some tests in next few days.

You know what fuck your game tried to reinstall again and it says one fucken day how about you fucken fix your game so you don't have to confirm the email and make a lot of people actually play the game instead of the 15 people online a day.

Everything is already fixed. Read comments.
In this build account activation is disabled.

If you downloaded game few days ago, then download again.

This game is pretty fun if you have people to play with!

Play with friends, or record gameplay video and upload on youtube, to help advertise game.

please help me i want to try this game out but hadn't even started due to this fucking confermation code if possible one can give me their account current or old

Download game again. Validation disabled in this build.

when i downloaded from this site it fails every time so i downloaded from another site

one more question can i play this game without internet connection after signup?

Install itch.io app and download/install games from app.

No, you can't play multiplayer game without internet connection.

(1 edit)

For some reason, i cant make an account, everytime i try and make one it just never sends any email, and i have tried to make an account with 3 different emails but no success? 

PS i have waited 20+ minutes for the emails to be sent too

Download game again. Validation disabled in this build.

Ok, thanks for the help man :)

i am asking before downloading so please reply soon...
Is it multiplayer??

if yes can i play it in my linux without steam to my friend using windows??

Yes the game is multiplayer, and can play normally with your Windows friend.

Could you please add the ability to password servers so that people can play with just their friends?

Create room for 2 (or 3, or 4) players and play with your friends.
Only players with rank 60+ can create/join private rooms.

Oh, ok! Thanks!

my download fails each time tried for 10 times +
