Smile How to solve Startup problems with PR1.0 in 5 Steps

[R-COM]LITOralis.nMd. Note : This is a partial solution, and a temporary solution while a work around for compatibility issues is found, expect this sticky to change , this post is to get people with this error up and running, even if it takes a few steps each time you start.

Hi guys!!!
I tried to solve the problem with the lunching for a day and here is some ways to solve it:
***DO NOT DELETE ANY THING LIKE THEY SAY!!! TRY THIS!!!
Step 1:
Change your resolution to:
If you run in any of the below resolutions on a LCD display , change to 1024?768@60H windowed mode

3 Extended Graphics Array 3.1 XGA (1024?768 )
3.2 WXGA (1366?768 and similar) 3.2.1 1366?768
3.2.2 1360?768
3.2.3 1280?800
3.3 XGA+ (1152?864)
3.4 WXGA+ (1440?900)
3.5 SXGA (1280?1024)
3.6 SXGA+ (1400?1050)
3.7 WSXGA+ (1680?1050)
3.8 UXGA (1600?1200)
3.9 WUXGA (1920?1200)

and in Documents\ProjectReality\Profiles\0001\Video it should be like this:

VideoSettings.setTerrainQuality 3
VideoSettings.setGeometryQuality 3
VideoSettings.setLightingQuality 3
VideoSettings.setDynamicLightingQuality 3
VideoSettings.setDynamicShadowsQuality 3
VideoSettings.setEffectsQuality 3
VideoSettings.setTextureQuality 3
VideoSettings.setTextureFilteringQuality 3
VideoSettings.setResolution 1280x1024@60Hz
VideoSettings.setAntialiasing 8Samples
VideoSettings.setViewDistanceScale 1
VideoSettings.setVideoOptionScheme 2

(and so as in Default)
save and close.


1b. (For those with CRT displays) If you run in any of the Above resolutions on a CRT display , change to 1024?768@75H windowed mode

and in Documents\ProjectReality\Profiles\0001\Video it should be like this:

VideoSettings.setTerrainQuality 3
VideoSettings.setGeometryQuality 3
VideoSettings.setLightingQuality 3
VideoSettings.setDynamicLightingQuality 3
VideoSettings.setDynamicShadowsQuality 3
VideoSettings.setEffectsQuality 3
VideoSettings.setTextureQuality 3
VideoSettings.setTextureFilteringQuality 3
VideoSettings.setResolution 1280x1024@75Hz
VideoSettings.setAntialiasing 8Samples
VideoSettings.setViewDistanceScale 1
VideoSettings.setVideoOptionScheme 2

(and so as in Default)
save and close.

Step 2:
Go to your Battlefield 2 folder , either in Program Files, Program Files (x86), or Steam folder, default is C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\battlefield 2\ or your custom Batlefield 2 installation dfirectory.

Right click on PRBF2.EXE and click properties->Compatibility(on top)->click on the box with "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and then click windws 7/8(for those who got it) and click ok.

*** do the same thing by right clicking on the Project Reality BF2.shortcut on desktop... open containing folder and change to win 7/8 in Launcher and Updater with the same way as said above but then click on the box on both files with "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" again so it will be gray and then OK.

Step 3.
Got to the launcher and click play.
After the game works Exit.

Step 4.
Change it in the launcher options to your screen resolution but still no full screen.
Enter the game... exit the game and go to your launcher options and do full screen.

Step 5.
Go to Options->Global in the launcher and change the direction folders in "update download/log" location to
*your folder such as Program Files\Battefield 2 Complete Collection , Program Files (x86)\Battefield 2 Complete Collection , or Steam folder, default is C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\battlefield 2\ or your custom Batlefield 2 installation directory.


Play and enjoy the game.

******************************Achtung************* ************************Achtung******************* *****************************************Achtung

Note from [R-COM]LITOralis.nMd. : Working on creating a permanent fix, this is a temp thing to get you playing now.

You will have to go to the BF2 main folder every time and change it to win 7/8 before you play the game ans is said in Step 2.

P.S It can be your antivirus blocking the program! unblock it from blocking !!!

IF IT WORKED RATE IT PLEASE!!!

First of all than you for taking the time to solve this for everyone / most of us.

I followed the guide by step but there seem to be more issues going on as sometimes I am able to launch and sometimes it just does not work and is pretty random.

( Having Win 8.1 I've tried Win 8 and 7 just in case to no avail )

It worked for me when nothing else did! Thank you so much. Hopefully the DEVs will address this problem and maybe fix it in the next update.

KPECTOK, Thank you!
When I get some free time I'll sit down and figure out why this works, and see if we can make a a recommendation to AncientMan so he can find a permanent fix.

I have to first install BF2 and PR on my win8 machine, then test this out... I also have to install a gaming GPU too, so will take a bit of time.
