Sorry for the inconvenience but the comfort of an autoupdater is also new to us.

If you use the auto updater, just letting you know it took near 8 mins before it started doing anything. Like the op said it looks frozen or crashed but it started after 8 mins.

It's fun and balanced!!!!

BTW: I did suggested INS mode for PRV, It's happy to see it come to real!!

One more thing: Thank you DEVs and Well done!

The big trans heli still has a weight issue, you can't really land without tipping over in the front.

Quick update otherwise, I love the m14 change! :D

Daniel
2012-04-27, 18:39
... Quick update otherwise, I love the m14 change! :D

From what I read, doesn't it take much more time now to pin down the enemy right in front of you, since it shoot half that fast now???

Installation:
Extract to your root Battlefield 2 Server directory. Everything should go
into the right spot.

But I do not find right away ... Which map does this mean "server directory" ...

Some small help would be appreciated.

Thing is that you have a double amount of ammo since it was bugged before, recoil is also easier to control in short ranges.

Fast fire was quite unuseful for me, you hit maybe 1-2 shots the rest were wasted. Firing semi means that you hit what you shoot and with the m14, the person hit wont keep trolling towards you :P

I also don't understand what it means by:

Is the root Battlefield 2 Server directory just the C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2?

Yeah, same.

It's been looping for the past 10 minutes.

Guess I'll have to download it manually.

Edit: Ironically, the manual download was quicker than the auto-updater.

2 hit is deadly. M14 had some power back then and that's why people loved them. They could kill enemy even behind tree.

When it asks if you want to overwrite the folders/files, click yes. When all is done, you should only have one "mods/pr" folder. Also, to make sure everything worked correctly, launch the updater program. It should say you have beta 2 if you unzipped everything correctly.

I've just realised something. The PR Devs actually listen to what the community wants/needs, then they add/fix/change it, unlike many other developers...

Hey Guys,
I get the following error message: Access denied.

This message comes every time after i extract the update to the BF2 folder and then I click YES for overwrite the folders / files and then come the error message.
Autoupdater doesnt work.
Can someone help me pls?

Pronck

Alright I have installed it, but there is no server filled with people on 'nam maps, is a test on a local server enough to test for crashes or other bugs? Because all servers seem to prefer maps like Kozelsk over Ia Drang and Dien Duong

AfterDune
2012-04-29, 19:33
I'd love to see a Vietnam-only server, so whenever you feel like dropping some Napalm, you can hop on and do it.

Still have to be populated of course. But I'm sure the community can come up with something..?

Did you increase the A1H plane's rolling speed on air strip? It was horrible slow in the first version, which made you take ages for reloading!

EDIT:
Tested it on my own now.
Reload/repair zone on the air strip is now enlarged, so you dont have to taxi into the little A1H's spawn area which made you take ages. You can simply land now, stay on the middle of the airstrip and take off after reload without having to maneuver anymore
Great fix!

Please check if you have got the right version. Start the Updater in your PR folder. If it shows you the current version is Beta 2, then it is the right one. If not try to download the zip file and copy the "mods" into your bf2 Game folder.

762 is hosting a PRV 24/7 server like Daniel says.

I replaced the folders. But every time I launch the PR app. It sits on the loading screen before the app opens. And then just fails to load and closes. I'm not sure if this will help. But I looked at the prError folder and it's giving me this

If you cant extract them to Battlefield2 folder, extravt them elsewhere and then copy them to battlefield2 folder. Battlefield 2, where you .exes are, not battlefield2/mods/bf2 or anything just root batlefield2. Hope you get it sorted :)

BlackTears
2012-05-04, 19:51
First of all, thx for the help!


I have the same problem as BlackTears. So do I just copy the mod folder then right click on the bf2 folder and paste?

I solved the problem as follow for the "access denied" error message while extracting the file:

- Use "sevenzip" instead of winrar oder winzip to extract the file.

- Extract it to C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2

- When it asks if you want to overwrite the folders/files, click yes.

...... and everything is working fine again ;-)

About the changelog: You do realise 1200 rpm is not possible on the BF2 engine? If you set the weapon to 1200rpm it shot 900rpm ingame...

BloodyDeed
2012-05-06, 10:46
Thats why it has been lowered. It was a mistake on the first place.
The weapon was set to 1200 even though thats not possible and the maximum is 900. But it's 600 now anyway :D

Actually, the maximum is 1800. The MG81 in Fh2 uses that and it works, fires 1 shot per server tick.

While this was quite true for PRV, minimods like PRN and PRF are side projects of sole devs, respectively [R-DEV]AfterDune and [R-DEV]Rhino. Rest of the team is working on the next release, which is btw sheluded to include PRV.

That is from my point of view, anyway.
