1. What is the difference between the DEMO and the FULL Pteroglider vesrion ?


The FULL version has four stages while the DEMO has only one. The FULL version also offers unlimited time of gameplay with rising difficulty level and uploading your score to server. Not mentioning a lot of new content like: over 18 new enemies classes, new backgrounds, new soundtracks and exciting end level bosses ! You can learn more about Pteroglider's FULL version features in the about section.

2. What does the "IS NAME UNIQUE ?" button in the profile creation do ?


The "IS NAME UNIQUE ?" button browses through the Ranking table and checks if yours desired profile name is not already used by someone in the on line scores. Even if it is you can still use select it but you will be assigned a index number which will help you find your profile.

You can do that in the in-game menu which can be opened using the ESC or SPACE key. In the tab "Options" you will be able to set the mouse sensitivity as well as music and sound volume. Please note that these setting are saved with the profile.

Naturally. Pteroglider was developed on a machine that had a trackball.

6. Why does the Cross Hair turn blue after some time ?


After some time when you target an opponent you get a lock on him. That means that when you fire a rocket while the Cross Hair is blue the rocket will be locked on the target and will seek it.

7. How do I Experience the Craziest Fight & Flight in the Known Universe ?


That one is simple ! You just have to download the free DEMO or get the FULL version to start playing now and join in the fun !

9. Can I keep the profile from the DEMO when i buy the FULL version ?


Of course ! when you uninstall the DEMO there will be two files left in the folder: "save.dat" and "settings.dat". You can simply copy them to the folder with the FULL version.

10. Do I loose score when I use up all of my lives ?


When you loose all of your lives you will suffer a death penalty but it will not reduce your score. The death penalty results in decremented level of gun advancement, life regeneration and energy regeneration as well as cutting your rocket count by two... so better watch out there :)

11. I am experiencing technical difficulties running the game.


If you have DirectX SDK (Software Development Kit) installed be sure that it is in RETAIL mode not DEBUG mode. Besides make sure you have the latest drivers for your video card and such, installed. If that doesn't solve the case please drop us a line.
