Default Looking for some help...

Hello, I am new to the whole Project Reality thing and I was looking forward to trying the more Tactical side of Battlefield. But my problem is I have downloaded the patches and the 3 parts of PR mod... but when I get on the game and I select my Account it keeps saying it's refusing to connect, any help?

I'm going to move this to the tech support section where it will have higher visibility to people specifically qualified with the technical side of things.

Good luck in finding a solution.

Might actually be a server side issue, bf2 servers broke for everyone like a week ago, lasted a day.

Was BF2 installed and working before you installed PR? Was BF2 patched to 1.5 ?
Can you log in to vanilla BF2?
If BF2 was already working, we'll suggest one course of action. (Could be firewall/antivirus/router/installation error/etc)
IF BF2 was just installed NOW so you can play PR, all the parts have to be installed in proper order.
Please read below and make sure you installed BF2 and PR in this order:

Here is the installation guide with download links:
PR:BF2 Support - Project Reality Forums

Here is the installation guide in tl;dr format:

Install BF2.
Run BF2.
Note the version number on the bottom left corner of the log-in screen. Write it down.
log in or create a user account.
join online game.
adjust your audio and video settings now for convenience.
exit BF2.

(Optionally if you bought it) install Special Forces Addon.
Run BF2.
log in.
join online game.
exit BF2.

install 1.41 FULL PATCH.
Run BF2.
log in.
join online game.
exit BF2.

install 1.5 PATCH.
Run BF2.
log in.
join online game.
exit BF2.

Download and install 0.973 full installer.
Start the PR shortcut on desktop.
log in.
join online game.

If you crash at the splash screen, or the screen goes black and then crashes to desktop, try to start PR in windowed mode by following the directions below:

Edit your PR shortcut and ( what AfterDune said ) put this in it

"D:\Program Files\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\pr.exe" +restart +menu 1 +fullscreen 0 +szx 1280 +szy 720
Dont just copy paste this, but adjust to your install location. Make sure you dont omit quotation marks or it wont work.
If you start in windowed mode and it CTDs, a Message will pop up telling you the problem. Take a screenshot or write this down and post it to this thread.

You can then download the PR:Vietnam, PR:Normandy, PR:Falklands and Anders Soundmod at your discretion.
