The award winning Project Reality Team (https://www.realitymod.com) is proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA!

http://media.realitymod.com/headers/prarma2_release.png

After countless hours of development, thousands of code changes and an intensive testing period, we are pleased to announce the general availability of the Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA modification. You can download and install the mod one of three ways. The easiest way is via a self-installer.exe. The second is to use Desura (http://www.desura.com/mods/project-reality-arma2), a powerful digital distribution application. The final and most difficult way is to download a ZIP to manually install. To avoid any potential problems, we strongly advise all users to use either the self-installer.exe or Desura (http://www.desura.com/mods/project-reality-arma2) to install the mod.

Thanks to several direct link providers, there are a number of mirrors available to download Project Reality: ARMA 2, including a torrent. You can find all of the download links and information here:

Download Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA Here (https://www.realitymod.com/downloads#arma2)

Please note that you must have ARMA 2: Combined Operations installed and be running the ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead v1.59 patch in-order to play the Project Reality: ARMA 2 mod.


First BETA Release
This initial release is a BETA, and therefore should NOT be considered a final product. It should also be noted that this is v0.1 of a brand new mod on a new game engine and should not be compared in anyway to the Project Reality: BF2 modification. The aim of this BETA release is for the PR Team to get quality feedback to ensure that we are progressing in the right direction with the PR:ARMA2 mod.

Most of the current work we have is sitting at around 80-90% complete, but is simply not ready to be included in this initial BETA release. With that said, a lot of content has been removed and in some cases placeholders have been implemented so that we can concentrate on the more important gameplay aspect of the mod to ensure we get it right first.

As with any BETA release, the quality of future releases now lies with you, the community, and the feedback you provide. As is normal with any Project Reality release, we will not take on any feedback for at least 2 weeks. This time period will allow players to adapt and fully understand the PR:ARMA2 gameplay concept before commenting. Therefore, the feedback forums will remain locked for the next 2 weeks.

For the purpose of the BETA only offical PR servers will be used.

before a non-BETA version is announced to be released you can apply for a server licence.

I think this is unnecessary, how do we actually test??

We have many more members in our community, so we have no chance to test.
They should rethink this so that everyone can test and not a small portion.

Please, we need a license to test or this mod will not be great for our community

So you're giving candy and then taking our mouth.
Our community has since 2006 always dedicated to the project reality, Where is the respect for it?

Seems some people have no concept of 'beta'.

More servers are coming online shortly. One more in the US (another TG) and another EU.

Please bear in mind people that:


this has JUST been released so everyone wants on NOW
OCD is contagious and people are relentlessly pressing Join
People have fucked up installs
This is a beta

I repeat, the PR team needs to maintain official servers. Alot of the clans are mass kicking for let their own mates in and then locking the servers. FOR EXAMPLE TACTICALGAMER IS DOING JUST THAT CONSIDERING ITS THE ONLY SERVER FOR 2 CONTINENTS(N AND S AMERICAS)

Also, let Brazilians host a PR server for their continent I don't see why they cant, it would also give us americans another place to play on (150ish ping).

112233 - I have already posted in regards to US servers. Your point has been made - please discontinue the attitude of you will find yourself removed from the forums.

Servers are locking to trickle feed players in to see if that improves things.

TG, Alpha and Kellys Heroes server admins are all on TS together coordinating.

Hfett

Reconsider releasing the Beta server so that everyone can try. retrieve all communities.

We have the largest communities in Latin America and we can not have a test server?

UK_Force
2011-09-02, 19:05
We released only 60 mins ago, please calm down.

If more BETA Servers are required, more will be provided.

TG are not locking down for their clan, they are merely monitoring the server and ensuring it does not crash ................ this is a BETA.

Please relax - PR: ARMA2 is not going anywhere.



Please be patient, things that need resolving will be.

As has been said this is probably the biggest hit on ARMA2 PvP ever ........ hence we are at BETA stage.




Thank you

He does have a point w/ that brazilian server, but I guess there's some reason for them not getting a key... Otherwise I bet they'll retrieve one soon. And this comes from some one in Europe :p


BUT! Let's not forget, there's always server issues when new games gets released, just look at some pretty new major game developer games such as Battlefield: Bad Company 2 & Call of Duty MW2!

Ill post this in here just incase anyone is having problems with the Steam version of Combined Ops.

For steam, you should have linked ArmA 2 and OA together to create Combined Operations, if you havent, then read >THIS< (http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=101214)

Once youve done that, you should install PR into the OA directory, it should find you the directory itself (at least, it did for me).

Make sure it creates the desktop icon (if you use a lot of ArmA2 mods), otherwise you need to go into Steam, Right click ArmA 2 OA, "Set Launch Options" and then type "-mod=@PR" (without the "").

When you double click Operation Arrowhead in the Steam menu, make sure you select "Launch Combined Operations" and then you should be good to go.

Hope this helps.

So every time I actually manage to join a server it asks me to delete more and more addons. Am I just not going to be able to have any addons for OA then? Once it asked me to take off RKSL's Typhoon I closed the game.

Yes.. they're all bi.signed.

So every time I actually manage to join a server it asks me to delete more and more addons. Am I just not going to be able to have any addons for OA then? Once it asked me to take off RKSL's Typhoon I closed the game.

Yes.. they're all bi.signed.

Your not supposed to have any addons other than PR if that is what you are trying to do... Also putting mods directly into the ArmA 2\AddOns folder is not a good idea, if thats what you are doing.

I'll just go to bed and see if things are more calm in the morning.. Seems like the sensible thing to do.

Eddie, you need to run PR WITH NO OTHER MODS RUNNING.

Dont delete, just Disable via the OA "Expansions" page. Or use the PR.exe

Took DMR, killed a lot of people. Awesome. You absolutely need sight adjusment for distance... I can't shoot anyone on 900+ meters. =( It's just not enough DMR of scope.

The mod is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME though.

There should be an option (at least for the blufor,opfor - am not sure) to *zero* the rifle at various distances from 100m and up (PgUp and PgDown),should be the same for the APCs (IFVs).
I'll verify this,after the download+install part.

It is there where BIS made it to be - MMG, some of AGL. But most of the snimer/marksman rifles are without the sight adjusment. And their scopes are effective up to hardly 600 meters. When, say, m24 with 7.62 round should hit on 800 (and with magnum one - up to 1.2 km).

Also I didn't get how to set the claymores?

Well it's not ACE. You can hit at a large distances, there's not really big deviation here. Just scope marks are not enough to aim properly, you have to aim intuitively. =)

Hi folks,first of, brilliant work PR this looks really good and has awesome potential and think it will do great.Secondly the only problem I encountered were nasty people who in their wisdom obviously think that they are so much better than everybody else just because they have played this PR stuff before or as someone put it "ffs man if you were a PR vet you would know your stuff" a PR vet? Is this the required level to play this mod of Arma?
I have played Arma and OP Arrowhead for over a year and would never say shxt like this,it was an American btw,I had read the manual before starting but surely as with any new venture all it takes is a little patience and practice,I have never played any PR stuff before this and was really looking forward to the experience but TBH I heard a lot of this kinda talk and it spoiled the whole game for me.When I first started out with Arma I can honestly say I never got a bad vibe from anyone,on the contrary,please tell me this isn't going to be the norm?I saw a lot of folk who were obviously in the same boat as myself just taking it slowly to get accustomed to the whole new feel and trying out the menu options but with some Yank assxxle shouting crap in there mic at you well you get the picture.
All in all it was an ok experience and most people looked to be having a blast,after all it is only a game right?and is there to have fun.

Good luck with this project and give yourself's a big pat on the back.

Welcome to PR mate! Don't worry about all the trolls. I think when they play project reality they get a little excited and forget their manners. But for most of us its about teamwork so hang in their and you'll see a few good games with solid teamwork is worth it.

It was a quite a stressful evening for those of us on the Dev teamspeak server! We had all the Official Server Admins on there too, and were responding pretty quickly in getting more servers up in order to cover as wide an audience as possible. Having all the admins in one place ensured swift feedback on issues (and hackers .. and therefore banning) which was really helpful, so hats of to them.

The initial rush to get on was inevitably going to cause issues. Thankfully the majority of the community are mature and reasonable enough to understand that, and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

We're pretty relaxed about the hackers tbh. On the scale of things they're just a tiny pimple on the bad a$$ mod that Project Reality for ArmA2 is going to be.

Thanks in advance for your feedback and support during this beta phase.

Hey mate.
Open up steam -> Press "Add game" -> Non-Steam game at bottom and add ArmaII retail.
Launch Arma II -> Exit after in menu.
Launch Operation Arrowhead, make sure you launch OA, not the Combined Operations -> Exit after in menu.
Launch Combined Operations -> Right click Operation Arrowhead -> Launch Combined Operations. -> Exit after in menu
Launch PR:Arma using the shortcut made to your desktop by PR:Arma installer.
Enjoy.

Played a few hrs. Gotta say that I love it. But there's many issues. It would be great if your squad members had ui icons and names overhead like in Bf2 PR. Also the Sahud could show your squad members in green, everyone else in blue. Now I usualy end up checking the map for where is my squad.

Also why is the Warrior apc so damm slow? It can barerly move on steeper surface than completely flat. And sometimes whenver I drive around turned out, I automaticly turn in and can't turn out later. 3d Interior atleast for the driver would be great.

Overall it's great experience, much better than you'll ever get from stock arma2 withouth joining a clan and training daily or get kicked out.

It is a A2 "feature". You can only guess the mindset of BI when they make new addons and expansion packs rather than fixing the actual base game netcode that makes it, well, warping piece of crap...

UnitedOperations has successfully hosted TVT matches of up to a little more than 100 players with little-to-no desync. However, the server is run very strictly in terms of performance management, unlike PR servers. That being said, I would hate to see servers go above 60-70 players. We've already got enough problems with massive desync on 50 slot servers, so I say 60-70 because I'm hoping that in the future servers are run/monitored better.

Yes on the Apache.

Hmm, while obviously you're referring to the things that can be done with scripting or whatever, I think any of these sorry souls who've nothing better to do than try to spoil the enjoyment of the game for others would love nothing more than to see someone saying "here they are gods"...please, don't feed their egos. :-)

I also think you've being very harsh on Bohemia Interactive. The sim they have created is truely astounding and without it PR:ARMA would not be possible. Unlike 95% of developers these days they continue to support their games and constantly provide bug fixes and generally improve the game. The "hacking" (which I think is too strong a world and also only serves to boost their egos, cheaters is a better word) is only possible because how open and mod-able the sim is. I'd much rather they leave the game open to the community, afterall it's this freedom that actively encourages the community to support the game and likely why PR chose ARMA as a base. They continue to work on their anti-cheat software but as has been said there will always be a way for those who're willing and you can't really blame BI for that. Also, remember it is a pretty complex simulation, no software is ever bug-free. As for online, remember with 50+ players, that is a lot of data that has to travel all around the world, when you add all the extra content from mods into the mix - i'd say they haven't done that bad of job.

...

Anyway, on to Project Reality. This weekend was my first experience with PR and I am suitably impressed. Must have logged at least 20 hours so far and it's really been a lot of fun, probably the most fun i've had in Arma since it's release. Really nice to be playing against real players again and I like all the work that's been done. Many thanks to the developers, really excellent work and good luck with the mod in the future.

I have played for almost 2 days straight now. I even bought Arma 2 and OA again because I lost my first keys a while ago just to play this, since I am a big fan of BF2:PR.

My first experience is to be as expected in a new mod, alot of people didn't know what they were doing and same for me. I learned alot and there were a few helpful guys that were patient with the noobs. I do have to say, soon as I saw the crate being delivered in a crappy pickup truck and unloaded and dragging the crap around.. I sh*t myself!

There are things that can not be avoided because its part of the Arma 2 engine, like gunning vehicles.. its choppy, laggy, and jumpy. I heard people threatening to quit PR because of it and I tried to explain it is not PR it is Arma 2.

I learned something new every day. I am usually a medic, or mortar gunner. As a medic, I like running Holo scopes. We were on Ironforge (sp?) which is wide open. So I grabbed a scoped medic rifle. When we were clearing houses and compounds, I was complaining I should have switched weapons before we hit the compounds cause It won't be easy to clear using scopes. Someone told me to hit the backslash on the keypad and I sh*t myself again! I don't know if changing sites from scope to iron sights is a feature of PR or Arma 2, if it is a feature of Arma 2... I never knew about it and I have played Arma 2 for a VERY long time!

So all in all, I love PR for Arma 2. It is only going to get better from here since this is gameplay focused. I must admit, I did not think the mod could be much different from Arma 2 gameplay and thought it was just custom models/sounds. I bow to R-Devs.

Really? I have played all this time and didn't know that. I thought the Acex mod added that feature when I played UO. Oh well, still nice :P

You should play through the tuts next time :P There's many great features that OA added.

Well a very friendly helpful DEV and I just tore a gaping wound in the side of some Americans Eagle Claw style, Great fun and great teamwork was not only on everyones mind but we actually achieved such gameplay, it was great and easy to adjust to being an ArmA2 player for some time now, finally sinking my teeth into this New addition to the PR Series was well worth the wait and to think it's only Beta.

What i would like to know is if this REQUIRES Combined Ops or can be played with simply A2 and A2:OA Seperately installed.

Has to be combined ops, A2 + A2:OA installed together. If you have it seperate, there are guides on google you can search for on how to make them CO.

It could have been the server too. I have not experienced any uncommon A2 lag, except last night on one of the TG servers had really bad desync for 30 minutes that required them to lock it down to debug. That happened only once since I played for almost 2-3 days straight except for sleeping.

Having been a long standing PR player on BF2 but never having signed up to the site I've now decided that this release deserves a comment.

Arma 2s connection lag and frame rate issues aside..... this is the first mod that I feel caters for pvp superbly. In its beta form it is still a huge improvement in how the game plays out and I think this is down to the design of the mode so far, but also the type of players that have appeared to play it... many heading over from BF2PR and this has played a part in great squad play for me so far, of course its new and people are not yet spot on with everything it can be slow to get going but everything I like about PR inf combat is basically there already and I find this a huge improvement over anything pvp Arma 2 has yet offered. Also not having to install anything else mod wise is a bonus.

I hope the balancing when releasing more assets remains good.

Thank you for adding value to my Arma 2 purchase for pvp, look forward to ongoing releases.

UnitedOperations has successfully hosted TVT matches of up to a little more than 100 players with little-to-no desync. However, the server is run very strictly in terms of performance management, unlike PR servers. That being said, I would hate to see servers go above 60-70 players. We've already got enough problems with massive desync on 50 slot servers, so I say 60-70 because I'm hoping that in the future servers are run/monitored better.

Yes on the Apache.

So we're gonna have the same or even lower ammount of players than in BF2 only with much bigger maps? :/ Thought one of the big atractives of this was huge player count. Don't know why I had that idea, but it made me disappoint.

Arma 2 has never been really stable enough to host more than 60 ish players on a single server, the game was built to be player versus ai, even United Operations kept it 60 or below. It is not PR's fault, but we know how Reality Dev is, I am sure they will attempt to do what they can on their part to make it work with even more players like they are doing with BF2 PR. To me, and I think to everyone else, it was not the attraction of huge player allotment, but the ability to take an already realistic game even further with realism in the PR mod . This is only beta, I was in the beta of BF2:PR and let me tell you something... it is only going to get better!

Is there anyway I can play PRARMA offline?? I am only able to get onto servers when they are busy, but would like to practice a few things first before I go online (i.e. helicopter cargo load/unload etc)
Have tried setting up my own server, put I get a message "this server settings are not suitable for pvp, the server will close in 30 seconds"... not long enough to practice helicopter stuff... :confused:

ANy ideas?

On the mission selection screen, ensure you select the difficulty level as Expert and you should be good.

Tested it, didn't even get close to the expectations after such a long waiting period. Little content, some scripting, and nothing that ACE 2 didn't already bring. Sorry, but this isn't even scratching on any other conversion mod for ArmA 2.

Please re-read the initial post, and you will see we have not actually being developing for 18 months.

Also bear in mind this is a beta, and is to test gameplay mainly ....... NOT a conversion Mod at this stage.

Either way your entitled to your opinions, but please bear these points in mind :wink:

Afaik ACE have been in developement for ages and still constantly evolving, wheras PR-Arma just stepped in.Furthemore the fact alone, that you can join any server at any time, with plenty of ppl actually playing, without passwords / mod's and errors hassle, is not a bad achievement at all for starter.
I guess we should understand simple fact, that if ones expectations are too high, we might be as well looking at buying from studios/publishers that actually charge for their work.

And even than we might get dissapointed :wink:

Exactly. PR:A2 makes the game easier and much more accesible. Unlike mods like ACE that combine hundreds of mods and even have to name their releases as "Stable" and then you'll only get a decent game once you learn the whole thing, join a clan, train and then finaly get into the game to be sniped by a bot.

We need to have OA to play PR? I didn't think OA even added anything besides content.

sparks50
2011-09-19, 07:00
Yes, you need both A2 and OA.

And OA added a lot of gameplay features when it came out. I think some of them were later added in free patches to A2, but OA is still well worth owning.

TactiKill
2011-09-19, 18:29
I don't see why it was necessary to build the mod off of OA, and I personally think the way ArmA has done their updates is a bit of a rip-off. Especially when compared to the other series like Red Orchestra.

OK... I have been playing PRARMA for a couple of weeks now..... getting to grips with it all..... but seems that the numbers playing are already falling off.... all UK servers nearly empty during weekend daytime....

What is the feedback procedure, so that we can keep the ball rolling, keep momentum??.... I've heard too many comments along the lines of "Dominik520". "Its just another MOD".....
