Quitting and exiting the game may be accomplished in two ways. While in flight, press ESC_GENERAL.png. This brings up the quit function in the background operation of Vega Strike. Pressing Q_EN.png will then quit the game. Otherwise, press ESC_GENERAL.png again to return to normal flight.

To quit from a base, enter a base computer screen and access the In Game Menu.


To pause during play, select either PAUSE_EN.png or use pipe SHIFT_LEFT_EN.png BACKSLASH_EN.png. Press again to resume play.


Time compression speeds up the passing of time in Vega Strike. This is useful when a developer requires time to pass quickly. This could occur where a pilot is manually flying toward a target, or waiting for the fuel bars to regenerate to full.

Press F9_GENERAL.png to activate or increase, and F10_GENERAL.png to deactivate.

Note: This Function is Disabled in v0.5.0 and Subsequent Versions


Both music and sound are an integral feature of Vega Strike, providing the right mood and atmosphere; whether on a base, in the middle of space or a major battle. While initial settings for volume are determined at configuration, these settings can be adjusted in game. The player may also skip any music track being currently played.

  • COMMA_EN.png = Sound Volume Down
