How can I install
There are two download
at the right side of the page above: one says Download Win Setup and the
other says Download ZIP.
If your desktop is running Microsoft Windows, then the easiest way to
install Pilot Lines is to use the first button to download the
self-installing file; click on the button, save it somewhere on your
desktop and when done, open it (or double-click on it).
Then simply follow the on-screen instructions.
The second button
allows downloading a ZIP file, which is a compressed file containing the
program files and some documentation.
ZIP files can be used on almost any software platform, including
Windows, Mac OS and even directly on Palm OS smart phones like the Treo.
However, since ZIP is a compressed document, you may need a program to
decompress it first. There are free ZIP extractors available for any
software platform today.
Do owners of the older
game versions get the new Pilot Lines for free?
Sorry, it was impossible
(read: highly unprofitable) to do that.
Pilot Lines 3 was totally rebuilt from the ground up, 100% new code, new
resources, new time spent on development and QA.
BEIKS has a long history of providing free product upgrades, but there are
exceptions to every rule and tradition and this was one of them.
Still, previous Pilot Lines owners can upgrade to the new version at
discounted rate. To do that, log-in to the MYSTUFF
zone with your original order details and follow up the upgrade link for
is it 500 kB?
It is packed with
features and sounds and it makes most of a wide range of devices (see
above). We believe that today's hardware capabilities totally justify
500 kB for a quality game.
downloaded the game already, where is the unlocking key?
Game development is
expensive (and marketing is even more expensive, by the way) so...you
have to purchase it.
The unlocking key, that is.
The game itself allows free play in one of its possible modes, but we
guarantee you it is not the best one.
"Register" is same as
"purchase the unlocking key"...so why pay? Well let's see...
To make us rich? No.
To support shareware...mmm...no.
To get more of the game you like? Yes!
To reward the efforts of those who had made the game amuse you? Yes!
I Enter the unlocking
code, but the game does nothing
If you enter the
unlocking code and the game did not respond to taping the "Register"
button, then either the code you have entered is incorrect or the Owner
ID on which it was based was incorrectly supplied to us.
The unlocking code is tightly related to the Owner ID, which is your
identification on the device (not the device factory number). To learn
more about the Owner ID and how to find it, please refer to the "How to
find Owner ID for..." link in the MyStuff
section of the site.
If necessary contact us via email to resolve the problem.
