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.

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!

Olá pode trazer uma versão 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

(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


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

um could you add a option to have bots in team deathmatch?


we have a vote on rexuiz teamplay servers
esc -> call a vote -> bots(0,2,4,6) choose any you wish from preset cases
BTW bots added by default on each rexuiz server we running


but if you talking about local game, there is a bots number option in right bottom corner to add any you wish.


cant find any servers with players?


Servers full or near limit in european evening.
for example now  http://rexuiz.com/servers 3 servers have live players.

hey I've noticed that in some of the cts/race maps I've downloaded I'm not able to move forward due to an invisible wall. i looked up the problem and apparently i have to type "g_playerclip_collisions 0" but nothing happens when i type it in. also no clip doesn't work either. what do i do to get around invisible walls in custom maps?


(1 edit) (+1)

at first, rexuiz dont have such variable name.

and can you please to save our time say the name of the map you have problems with?

its multiple maps lmao. none of the ones you suggested to me. The map names don't really matter, what matters is if you have a console command that would let me move past the invisible wall or not. if it helps, i read that the maps have invisible walls because they need a timer to start in order to work. 

heres the link to the discussion I read: https://forums.xonotic.org/showthread.php?tid=4717

I just want to know if there's an equivalent code in rexuiz.



Anyway, if you`ll reach the map with such issue in rexuiz, please let us know. We need an example to fix a bug exactly, if it exist. Creating such kind of "fixes" is a bad way of developing.

(1 edit) (+1)

okay. we found the map. g_playerclip_collisions 0 command will be available in next rexuiz update.
you can also try mod_q3bsp_curves_collisions 0. but in some cases it working bad.
also df maps from q3 are not rexuiz compatible atm.

i tried to host a game but i failed. i create a server.cfg file, i opened the 26000 port on my router and i started the run_server_win64.cmd, then i opened the game but in the multiplayer menù i couldnt find any server (the list was empty). when i quit the server and i relaunch the game the server list showed some server, but of course mine wasnt there.
can someone help me with this problem? i cant find a way to fix it...

Hello there.
There are some limitations in running dedicated server behind the NAT(Router).
At first, try to change port of dedicated server to 27000 for example, windows may have a bunch of hidden limitations.
And second, you have to enable NAT#Loopback on your router(but most of home routers dont have such feature) to make server available in the server list, but in most cases you`ll cant find your server in a servers list because it have to have static(dedicated) IP to work properly.

ps. after changing port of server, you can try to reach it with console(~ or shift+ecs) command "connect<port>"

thanks, the problem was in the port i used (26000). after changing that to 27000 i solved it. thank you very much!

This game is great but I finally beat the single-player first level and was working on the second level last night, but then I closed the game and when I reopened it, I didn't have access to the second level anymore: Ay Caramba! Is this intended behavior? This was from Rexuiz-2.5.2-190209.zip and I'm playing the 64 bit linux version

Deleted 2 years ago
(1 edit)

if you mean levels, than try to use save/load option
to load game use

and in game press esc and than

we going to add autosave on exit in next version.

or you mean you lost whole first episode progress i.e. all 7 levels?

Ohh, thanks, I didn't think to save once I got to the second level, I just thought I "unlocked" it.  Cool, I'll beat level 1 again after work and report back if I have trouble.  Thanks again for the cool game!

Mac won't render maps or characters after May 4 update.

Hey guys, any thoughts on how to get maps to render and characters to render? The latest update broke map rendering. Most maps appear black with pretty diamonds running around :-
Stats: mac

hey meathork. check you dlcache folder for zero size files and delete it. also check rexuiz.pk3 and data2009,,,pk3 have not zero sieze. we had issues with downloading data to clients couple of days ago during two days. maybe you got bad data.
and switch to qt launcher if you still not did it.

(1 edit)

Perfect. Thank you for continuing to do a great job with this project. 

(2 edits)

Hey. Are you still with us? Have no other contact to check you still good :)

Where can i download more cfs/ jump maps? also is nexball a functional thing or not?

keep up the great work!

we dont have such maps in our repo.
nexball have bunch of crazy updates. check videos about hockey and nexball here. but in these days it no so popular

could you please release more jump maps? cyberparcour and piece o cake are very fun and work incredibly well with the engine. you should atleast consider it. thanks!

also the first race challenge is bugged. I've beaten 36 seconds multiple times and it still wont allow me to progress


here is a bunch of run maps in old repo. download them and place to the folder where your config.cfg located (Rexuiz\data on windows, ~/.rexuiz/data on Linux or OSX)



Rexuiz is awesome!

But i have a problem
I have mac os Catalina

The game worked with launcher good. But I changed the resolution of the screen and right now screen is totally black but game continues ( I can hear music)
I tried to remove app and unpack again 
I tried previews version of the game and launcher
But it does not give me results 

How can I remove game with all logs totally 
or how I can launch the game with right resolution 
or how I can switch to default settings

Thank you!

(1 edit)

To return the game to initial state its enough to remove config.cfg, but so far we have lack of MacOS testers i cant say exactly where it may be located.
PS sorry for delay, something wrong with notifications here...

(1 edit)

if i`m right this command in console will solve your issue
rm -f ~/.rexuiz/data/*.cfg
or config.cfg can be located here
~/Library/Application Suppport/rexuiz/

Hi my friend and I tried playing Rexuiz the other day, I have no trouble personally but he has a problem with visibility. He can see main screen and setting screen no prob, but when he joins a game no models show up and everything's really dark. (See attached screen shot) he has no trouble playing other games, nvidia drivers up to date. Any suggestions would be handy. Thanks. Great game btw! Hes running windows 10 gtx1660 super

Its just a connection issue (happens from time to time). next time if you face with it, press esc and press reconnect button. or disconnect and connect to server again.(f11 key for quick disconnect)

Hi, thanks for replying. It happens every time he tries to play though. To the extent where every game he's tried is like this over a few days.


well if it happens in every multiplayer game, it means what something blocking in-game downloads. it may be windows firewall or some kind of antivirus software. try to run it in windowed mod and look at floating windows with questions about allowing connection or add rexuiz to whitelist in firewall/antivirus


Also can you please screenshot console output(can be opened with ~ and f12 key for screenshot) when issue will happen?

i confused what should i download 

Try Qt Launcher - easiest solution. download it in a folder where you wish rexuiz should be downloaded. And run it. It will download all necessary files and start the game. And for next starts just run launcher again. It will check for updates and starts the game.

I ran into a problem when I host a server, the bot's models dont show up, in some games there's a "force player models option" that makes it so that every player/bot's model shows up at the cost of them all having one, I was wondering if there was a similar option here that maybe I wasn't seeing?

If anyone knows a fix please let me know

(1 edit)

cant exactly get the problem, but in case, default player model is "models/player/nexus.zym". you can try fix it with g_player_forcemodel "models/player/nexus.zym"
By default setting models forcing not enabled only in campaign vs bots.

also can you please describe more about "bot's models dont show up", because there are no special models only for bots

I hosted a server by clicking create game in the multiplayer menu, and I added bots to the game, but in game the bots look like the diamond shapes in the screenshot

(2 edits)

sorry for delay.
bot nicks saying what where were some changes made.

can you please paste you server.cfg and config.cfg somewhere(pastebin.com is ok fo example). and bots.txt also if you changed it. it seems you made some deeper changes in server.cfg or maybe in config.cfg than necessary.

can you also supply us a screenshot output of sv_cmd cvar_changes ?

PS. you also can simply delete/rename server.cfg and config.cfg files to return you game state to initial and try again.
