Razqavarivay qrisha,ne istesnyaysa

(1 edit)

Qrisha can u make lightweight version of Rexuiz with voip chat support?Without quake mod inside of Rexuiz.Without xonotic weapon models.I dont like xonotic weapon models.For arm processors based devices  meant

U should keep Quake mod server based not application based.I just cant understand u why u did it.Rexuiz had become garbage

Qrisha ot starova komputera tolko ostalos monitor no i u  monitora toje yest koye kakiye problemi s lampami tak kak 4vet propadayot inoqda i ekran stanovitsa sinim i qlu4it.Poetomu orange pi 800 oy kak mne nujen potomu 4to ne pridyotsa pokupat novuyu klaviaturu.Qrisha bud dobr zakaji vot etu shtuku no bez kameri,naxuy mne kamera 


Odin raz otremontiroval monitor,yemu kone4 skoro.Kupil etu xuynu 2008 qoda vmeste s komputerom

Qrisha razqavarivay ya silno sosku4ilos po tebe

Qrisha u can use one of these songs as main ost and can use both them for Rexuiz generally.


Qrisha your thanks go to this dramatic adress "Az1115 Azerbaijan,Baku,Bineqedinskiy rayon 8 mikrarayon,Uli4a S.S.Axundova,Dom 2q,Kvartira 55,Polu4atel Tarverdiyev Rafael"

Is there freedom of speech in your game?Coz usually there are always stupid rules in one man made games. as  u know when there are a lot of developers this shit doesnot happen.How many developers do u have?Development active?When game is one man maded there are always some narcissistic behaviours from developer and it is really boring.

game still in active developing. there are lot of things in todo list.
about freedom of speech, just dont be an a*s and its okay

Sir,i compose music.So i would like to know if u want composer for your game.Here is my latest song that i still work on.If u want this song for your game u can use it for your game


U can thank me just donating Orange pi 800 馃構

Sir,how can i download android version of it?Could u give me the link for the android version of it?

Sir,current state of the song


Sir,did u like the song?

Qrisha,it is me your old crazy dramatic friend.I am not the King,i am the cocksucker.When i write "I am the King" in game chat i see that u show the agression against me coz u want to be the King yourself.I am dramatic and philosopher whose mind u can never understand

(1 edit)

Saying "I am the King maybe i wanted to kill your useless ego that u gained instead of losing it,maybe i troll narcissists with sarcasm as i said i am the dramatic.So decide yourself

Qrisha it is already 11 month i am without pc thanks to dogged friends like u.Let there be Orange pi 800 for your brother Laggy,Buggy,Glitchy Turtle,Let there be Rexuiz and Quake 2 arm  inside of Oranje pi 800 installed by u.

(1 edit)

Suddenly Qrisha says "I can remove your songs from Rexuiz if u want.Then bans me,then calling my phone non stop in telegram.It is not my fault,i am not guilty that life was cruel against u and i am not guilty that i love brainless idiot like u.I never banned u unlike u and my door always is opened for u

Qrisha my tablet is to slow for Rexuiz.Ustanovi Rexuiz i Quake 2 arm v oranje pi 800 i otprav mne s po4toy.Heal broken heart that u broke 馃構


Can this work with hotspot to play with friends 

(3 edits) (+1)

yes. in case you run it over local network you can create server and use 'connect IPaddress' command in game console(~ or shift+esc) in clients. in case you and your friends connecting via internet, you need create game and give an IP address of your server or supply the server name to your friends because server will be available in servers list.

Hi, I tried this game on my Anbernic RG363P (Android) and the integrated gamepad was ineffective. Could you add gamepad support to the game?

(1 edit) (+1)

touch screen controls is just a proof of concept. its have very bad playing experiences. even after latest update of it.
but gamepad should work. you need just assign keys in input section. but tbh, we tested it on PC only.
better way to get more fun is using mouse+keyboard. even bluetooth ones very playable. for usb keyboard and mouse OTG cable is necessary.


Is there any chance of a rexuiz discord server any time soon?


try http://discord.rexuiz.com/ or https://discord.gg/5whav8m4gY


Any builds or updates to make the game FULLY chromebook compatible? this game has the potential to be a  hard flex for chromebook users, Google AND the playstore in general as there are NO games that truly support it.

(2 edits) (+1)

if chromebook is able to run android apps, you can try apk build
something like this

How to Install Android Apps From APK Files on Chromebook

  1. Firstly, you will need a file manager Android app from the Play Store. …
  2. Then, download the APK files of apps you want to install from any website. …
  3. The Android like Settings page should open up. …
  4. Once the APK file is downloaded, open the file manager app and go to the Downloads folder.
(1 edit) (+1)

As far as I know, the Chromebook is Linux Debian but it needs to be active in the settings, just like it shows on the official google website. But I've never had the opportunity to own a Chromebook yet.

 Linux is disabled by default. You can activate it at any time in Settings. At the bottom right of the Chromebook, select the time. Select Settings, then Advanced, then Developers. Next to "Linux Developer Environment", select Enable. Follow the instructions on the screen. Setup can take 10 minutes or more. A terminal window appears. It has a Debian 10 (Buster) environment. You can run Linux commands, install more tools with the APT package manager and customize your shell.

google warns that it is not commonly downloaded and may be dangerous... has the site been tampered with?

which site you talking about? rexuiz.com? everything fine with it

Hi, How i can play with my Friend? i need to Add him in Itch.io or In game? how i do it?

its a bit complicated. but for easy way you can try to join some free servers. There are bunch of Rexuiz servers in servers list usually marked with "Best" word. Pick your preferred game type and join. Survival/coop/ffa(akimbo/non-akimbo/mixed arts). some of servers are free some have players. Just make a decision you wish to play alone or with other players.
But game also have ability to create your own server. Use Multiplayer window -> Create, create server you like, name it some how unique and start server. Supply name of the server to your friend and if everything is good your friend could join to your server using servers list and clicking on your server

hey im on mac and when im trying to download the first one it doesnt seem to work or idk how

Usually Mac users have no troubles with game running. Maybe you downloaded wrong file with launcher? Did you downloaded "RexuizLauncher.MacOS.zip" and unzipped it?

which should i download? the self updating one or the latest file released

Use first one. I bet i made a note somewhere on the page recommending the same :)

Hello, it would be nice to create a version of the game for iOS please Thank you

We are not ready now to support iOS and PS4/PS5 and Xbox versions

And do you intend to offer it in the near future on iOS or are you going to work on it?

No plans about iOS at this moment. Most complicated platform btw especially for opensource and completely free game

Can help me with Something of the Game

(1 edit)

Dont ask to ask, just put your question here or in separated thread.

to develop for ios you need a mac. Also it would be stolen really quickly and made a pay to win game by somebody. Developing for ios is just a pain in the ass, especially because you can鈥檛 sideload without a jailbreak.

Don鈥檛 think they have a mac and they most definitely won鈥檛 just buy one

Oi, what's the license on the assets? Is it all libre?



does this game has boss character like xan kriegor?, It would be cool, even cooler if you could unlock his skin.

yes. different bosses available in classic campaign and survival modes

am I going nuts or is this game really similar to xonotic. to the point were the UI is the same and some of the guns are the same.

the games have same base

it would be cool if someone made a mod for halo on this game 

what you mean? mod like halo game? vehicles/weapons? anything else?

nah... it has so less player online :<


Okay, I'm currently just messing around with the single player training, and...
Jesus CHRIST ctf training takes way too damn long. The first one, 1 on 1, I rushed as best I could (which is not that good, admittedly, but eh), and it still took about 30+ minutes. 100 points is way, way too much, and it gets outright boring after a while. Run to the flag, laser jump up, run back to your flag, laser jump up... Rinse and repeat, for 99 more times.

And the next one... I'm not even gonna bother with that, because if it took half an hour to finish this on that tiny 1 on 1 map - I don't even want to know how long would it take to do this on a larger map.

omg. you just found the bug with score counting. it will be fixed in next release for sure.

In case you using Launcher, fix already there.

Sorry for the late reply, but thanks for fixing it! I guess I'm just lucky (or unlucky, depends on how you see it) to stumble upon bugs. But it's a good thing that you have found a way to fix it, gonna play some more when I have the time. x)


i tried to download it but it didn't work so i tried to delete the game and download again but i can't delete it.


What OS you using? Which file you downloaded?

windows 10 and i downloaded the right file but i still can't delete it

sorry for delay with answer. there are 2 different downloads. full zip archive. this file only needs to be unzipped somewhere you like and after unzip you just need to start exe file in a folder where you unzipped.
in case you`ve downloaded Qt Rexuiz Launcher its the only one executable file which only asks you where to download other game data. and you can use this launcher for future game starts. so which one you`d downloaded? Also you can try to use Administrator rights to delete file. Also its possible what you have hdd/ssd error right in sectors where file downloaded and this may be fixed with different hdd/ssd checking tools

Total unreal tourny vibes downloading now


I really like this and am having a lot of fun playing it. Keep the content coming!

Ol谩 pode trazer uma vers茫o para Android??

Hey. You could try Quad touch play market app to run our game code using their darkplaces engine version. Its also possible to use outdated QI4A app, but its only available for 4.4 android.


Ah yes, someone who knows what Unreal Tournament is

A man of obscure culture I see

(1 edit)

might be the most unbalanced fps I've ever played. After a few hours of playtime you quickly realise it's not about skill it's about who gets the rocket launcher and spams it and all of the sweaty tryhards love to abuse the fuck out of it. 

I first thought it was something you gradually get better at but a literal monkey could play this game and could spam the rocket launcher after 1 hours of gameplay. other than that it's a good game, with it it's unplayable 

well, its akimbo mod. Its unbalanced by itself, but people found it most fun at current moment.


I like rezuiz, but what annoys me is that the beating your record messages assume that you are male. I would like it to say something more gender neutral, as it excludes those of us who aren't male (50% of the population!).

Will be fixed in one of closest updates


In a game though that has so much more to develop, does it even matter? The game is unrealistic af anyways, so enjoy the suspension of disbelief, you're a dude now, even if a female.

EXCELLENT game very challenging even on easy mode very good graphics no bugs or other issues

epic gam



Could you be able to fix the Mac app? The game says I am missing data when I click on it normally. I have to right click and open the executable file within the app.

(3 edits)

Hi. Could you please screenshot where and what you rightclickig?
Check this please https://itch.io/post/499554 

if above will not help, in game window you screenshoted above open console with ~ or shift+esc key, type path, press enter, screenshot it, share here and type quit, press enter.

Also you may try download and use QtLauncher app if you still dont.

(1 edit)

I right click the app and hit "show package contents, then click the contents folder, then to the folder that says Mac OS then this file right here allows me to play the game. I will see if the solutions work
Edit: I see one of the solutions is the method I use to get it to work. Just seeing if I can fix it so I don't have to do that.

(1 edit)

if it helps. This seems to be only on Catalina. I opened up a old imac (Early 2009 that had El Capitan(2015) ) And that computer opened the app just fine.

(1 edit)

Rexuiz.app.zip - here is a link to quick fix. Could you please backup you current Rexuiz.app folder, and place file over it? It have to fix that Catalina issue with relative paths in game

Btw, regarding this one -> Issue on catalina if your version of catalina outdated, you may fix it just updating to latest.

Did you tested it?

(3 edits)

oh yeah, sorry for not responding, was busy with something. Didn't really fix it. Oh well, still works regardless.
Just add this info for people with Sierra/Catalina (I have a friend who has Big Sur but he didn't have a problem clicking on the app)
- right click app and click "show package contents"
-Go to Contents > MacOS
- Click file named rexuiz-dprm-sdl

Just tested on 10.15.7 Catalina and not faced with issue you talking about... Tested using alias also with same result, no issue on our side.

(1 edit)

how do you delete it? when i try to delete it, it would say that the file is in use, but im not using it at all

edit: never mind i just had to relaunch the game and exit


(1 edit)

Reminds me of Xonotic. Nice game

thats because it is literally xonotic. just reskinned and reuploaded

why cant i download


Where you cant download? And what you trying to download.
Here is the simplest solution.
Open this url
choose you OS, lets say its windows.
Click to RexuizLauncher.Windows.exe
Your browser have to start downloading it.
Move file to your desktop for example. And run it. It will start and download all other game files. The game will start after download is complete. Next time just click to RexuizLauncher.Windows.exe again and game will check for update and start after.




Yes, we have 32bit binaries in package. Also QtLauncher have 32bit version
