Reason why I buy it from steam is that all my other games are in steam aswell, and its so much easier for me to carry a program around than 20 DVDs.

So, I have allready downloaded PR mod 0.9 (part 1 and 2)

I'd like to ask about the VOIP program.

How does it work?

Welcome to the Project Reality forums!

VOIP is a communication program BF2 has, you can use it to communicate with your squad by pressing deafult button: B. Of course you need a microphone .
Beside voip, we use a program called Mumble which allows inter squad communications. You will find everything you need to know about mumble here : http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f10-...t-reality.html . PR 0.9 comes with an option to install it, that means you don't have to download mumble if you have PR 0.909 part 1 and 2.
After installing the game READ THE MANUAL!. You will find it very useful. Even if you played BF2 alot, PR is much more different. Few similarities you will find are the controls, weapon selection/spawn menu, stuff like that.

Best of luck, and see you on the battlefield

voip is integrated when u install BF2. with headphones/speakers u will be able to hear what the squadmates are telling u via voip, having a headset/microphone is optional but i rly suggest to use it.

some ppl have to configure the ports of their internet router but that is not too hard to do.

also mumble is being used along the pr community, its free for download, installing is easy and it allows u to speak to any player on the server who is in a 60m range.

to ur first question let me tell u i bought several shooter games in the last years, ARMA I+II, far cry, operation flashpoint, etc... but always came back to PR.

so the mumble kinda enables me to talk directly at person(s) close to me? Love that

So I just fire up mumble, and it somehow syncs up with the game server I am playing on or something?

Nope, you have to join the server's mumble server (many have one) and the game server separately. Which sometimes can take a while if the server is full and you wait for a slot.

Welcome to the community! I hope PR will run without problem for you. Don't forget to read the manual, it'll save you quite some trouble in game.

Yeah, it should auto-update itself to the newest version (1.5) All you need to do then is install PR v0.9 and start playing You dont need Mumble quite yet, the ingame VOIP will do fine for you to start out with.
While you are installing/downloading you should read through the manual. That will be very helpfull. Then you should join a Coop server to test everything out, and when you feel ready you can come and join us all
Welcome and good luck.

Welcome back (sort of ) Grab yourself a microphone and don't hesitate to use it. Ingame VOIP is in use almost everywhere and some servers, notably Project Mumble Community, uses Mumble VOIP in addition to that. Teamspeak and Ventrilo is used by some clan servers.

Steam version has some catchups regarding pr.exe, the PR launcher program, IIRC. As has PR install in general. Those with more familiar with PR in Steam might know better. You should also disable Steam commmunity ingame in order to avoid PunkBuster kicks and update PunkBuster right after installation. Last but not least, launch regular BF2 once and retrieve/create your account(s) before starting PR as pr.exe expects some profile files to be in certain places.

Should you run into any problems, please check the sticky threads at support subsection of the forums:
