      Many thanks!!!!!!

      Nice :good:will have a download at the weekend, anyone know if the old save games will work?.

    • #104960

      Generally old savegames should work fine.  You might have issues around the Megaball Droid.


      That being said, we strongly encourage you to start a new game. The tutorial and beginning of the game have been heavily modified. The game’s pricing structure has been totally redone for ships, missions and upgrades.

    • #104961

      Can I play it, in full screen? (Because game starts in  window mode).

    • #104962

      Hey CaptainKal,


      we removed fullscreen for this release, as it was behaving buggy and also difficult to test.


      We’ll try to add it again in the next release, along with more resolution options.

    • #104963

      Hmm, 1.04 works fine, but this version doesn’t seem to run on my system. Looks great though! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Same here. The latest version keep refusing to run, no error message or whatsoever.

    • #104965

      PMs sent.


      We will look into this asap and try to figure out what the problem is.


      For anyone else with these problems, please share all the information you can. What exactly happens when you launch? What are your system specs, what OS?


      We tested the game on about 20 systems before release, and never had any trouble. Hopefully this issue will be something we can easily fix.

    • #104966

      Thanks to MV2000, we figured out the problem.


      It seems to be an issue with resolution. On monitors below 1280×800 the game won’t start in it’s default setting.


      For anyone else with this problem, you can download this alternate settings file, which will set the resolution to 1024×768:



      Copy it to your “/3030 Deathwar/data/” folder and the game should start with the lower resolution setting.


      The issue will be fixed in the next version!

      Thanks for the fix! It works fine with the new .ovl file

    • #104968

      Thanks to player feedback, version 1.12 is out now!


      As well as making some visual and gameplay changes, the new version should fix these resolution issues. Anyone having problems can now use the “Safe Mode” shortcut.


      Download as before at:

      Quick Update: Version 1.13 is out and fixes a lot of the resolution and fullscreen issues.

      Hey guys,


          I have been playing 3030 DeathWar for a while and it is fun!


      i have found a bug with the photo capture system. Apparently If you take on multiple photo capture missions and complete one, taking another photo crashes the game.


      Good thing I had multiple game saves. This did happen multiple times, so i am just wondering if anyone else got the same bug.

    • #104971

      Hey Fronzy,


      thanks for letting us know about the bug, we’ll add it to the issue tracker!

    • #104972

      There is a Let’s Play for 3030 Deathwar over at Action Soup Studios

      And well deserved too! Its high time 3030 Deathwar got some attention. :girlcrazy:

    • #104975

      Is there a game manual or a tutorial somewhere?

      I tried playing it, but had no clue what the controls were.

      Are you running it on a Win8 system by any chance? There are some issues with Win8 and potentially Win7 Ultimate as well.


      If you are having these problems, you will probably often run into difficulty when playing. Text will not appear or get scrambled, and the buttons might not do what they are supposed to. That is why you may not be seeing the tutorial when starting a new game.


      You can however check the readme file in the /3030 Deathwar/ folder named: “Windows 8 notice” and try to find your way around with those hints!


      It would also help if you reported your OS and resolution, as well as whatever issues you are having at our forums:
