Check your options, I think theres an option for auto-reload. It could be set on manual.

Yes, PR sets the auto-reload on off in Vanilla. Known, and no bug.

Just a hint: No auto reload means the enemy doesnt know that you're out of ammo. You can use a lot more tactics even in vanilla with auto reload off.

Unhappy Re: PR 0.8 messing up regular BF2 files

I am having a problem with PR editing BF2 files. I did not notice the auto-reload issue mentioned, since I always have auto-reload off for BF2, but I noticed something else.

The various settings related with the HUD have been changed and additionally the cross hair color has changed. I usually have a light blue hue on my cross hairs, but with PR they are changed to a peach like color. Why? I consider this a problem/bug, I have to change the settings each time I go back and forth between PR and BF2.

Why is it a problem? Look here:
Installation Guide - Project Reality Guide

Quote:
After installing Project Reality, you can play vanilla Battlefield 2 without worrying about any changed files, PR makes its own separate folder and can be uninstalled separately at any time.
Thus this is inaccurate. There must be a line in the PR settings which instead of referring to PR's settings file, it refers to and modifies BF2's file. They should look into this and release a tiny patch if this is the case.

Thanks for your time.

You can just make a separate account for vBF2 and PR and the settings for each will be kept same.

It modifies user settings, not game files.

The easy way to stop it affecting you is, as youm0nt says, make a separate account for PR.

Though he has a point, i think it should be written down somewhere before the user downloads it, just to be correct.

But can it be fixed somehow? The worst thing is that it changes the crosshair color in vanilla. I can live with no auto-reload, though I would like to see both fixed..
