Hey, so i just started using Godot 3.0 and I have project on godot 2.1 but I don’t know how to port the project

There is an experimental exporter under the Tools menu in Godot 2.1.4 which should automate part of the job. Otherwise, you have to go through your whole project and upgrade each parts one by one, and test them. This requires to know what has changed so you can fix things properly.
In any case, the bigger your project is, the more work it will be. If you didn’t follow 3.0 development, you will have to take the time to learn about all the changes, they are too many to be listed accurately :slight_smile:

Features listed in the news: Godot 3.0 is out and ready for the big leagues

worth noting though, last time I’ve tried, export from the menu in version before opening in 3
there was a lot, and I mean a lot of broken shit, missing stuff in project options, misplaced nodes in scenes
so beware that as of right now the exporting isn’t quite working, backup before attempting anything
