Hey Folks,

Welcome to the first full-blown release of Project Reality. Calling us a mini-mod is simply no longer appropriate with the addition of the British Infantry, an Insurgency faction, and a whole bunch of new maps, vehicles and weapons.

The torrent for Project Reality v0.40 is now available.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to uninstall any previous releases of Project Reality before installing this release.



You can grab the torrent file here:
LINK:
http://www.gloryhoundz.com/bt/pr_0406_setup.exe.torrent

The file is approximately 1.7gb in size.

You will need a torrent client such as Azureus (Azureus, now called Vuze : Bittorrent Client (http://azureus.sf.net/)) or uTorrent (µTorrent - The Lightweight and Efficient BitTorrent Client (http://www.utorrent.com/)) to grab the torrent.

Be sure the check the Project Reality Player Guide for more information about features in this release:
User Guide - Project Reality Wiki (http://prguide.realitymod.com)

This release is the first of many great releases to come as a result of Black Sand Studios collaboration. Look for releases from other Black Sand Studios mod teams in the future!

Many thanks to the Devs, testers and players who have supported the mod through a long and hopefully worthwhile development cycle for v0.4.

Enjoy!

and sicario keep seeding goodness its put acceleration for the download ;)

and im asking no patch from 0.31 to 0.4 ???

eggman
2006-11-11, 19:39
no patch cuz we realised that so much had changed it wouldn't really have saved much file size but would have created a lot more work for the dev and testing team.

the seeders we have are all very high speed, and there's a good number of them .. so hopefully download speeds will pickup for folks.

Direct Download links will come. However myself .. I am a *very* strong proponent of Torrents. It's a much better way to distribute things such as mods and the like. Bandwidth costs money and spreading the cost of that around while at the same time generally increasing download speeds is good for everybody.

And there's really no excuse for not having a torrent client .. they have matured now to where they are dead easy to download, install and use and typically they don't have any unusual security requirements or issues.

I've a 1.1Mbps ADSL connection, apparently, and Azureus shows ETA times jumping from 11hours to 1Day-10Hours...

Download speeds jumping from 17-33Kb/s

What if your ISP blocks all peer 2 peer traffic leagal or not, like mine?.. and if you have a router that doesn't have port-forwarding, or isn't configured you'll block most of the incomming traffic AFAIK.

I'm on 4%

Yea, Peers seem pretty exclusive to me. Some lucky people it works for really quick, and others it doesn't. Mine was going strong in the beginning, then plumiated as it went on and the time went up.

Just give us a straight d/l instead of having to deal with all this other stuff. You know that not everyone will seed.

No offence guys but you've had some time to get your bittorrent's installed and tested - even thread tips in these here forums.
http://realitymod.com/forum/t10910-bittorrent-help-thread.html

Sicadio - you should have an option to set the max upload speed go for 65-70% of your upstream maximum -

Yojimbo - your firewall may need adjusting or also lower your upload speed as above a bit.

Lugubrum - size depends on how they calculate it some, some say 1,000,000 - 1 mb but soemtimes it's caclced at 1024. as long as your torrent program checksums it OK then the download will be good.

Seed numbers should bounce around through the day, I for one will leave mine going till I'm ready to play later tonight, - then will bring it back up for the after. As will a lot of others.

As noted direct download links will come.

Do you have ANY idea what it takes to release a piece of software as complex as this?

No .. didn't think so.

We were set up in a much better position until late last night when we discovered a punk buster error and had to kill the original file we had distributed for seeding and direct download links.

And we worked on solving that problem from about 9pm PST until around 4am this morning so we could make the release date.

As a result of making a new build and replacing the other one, the direct download links will take a little longer to get into place.

You can whine about those when we put them up ;)

AC3421']Im getting ticked, where is our direct download??? If i look at this bullsh*t torrent again going at a meesly 40kb/s im gonna go insane.

Hmmm free mod, with months of work by volunteers,

Like Eggman said a direct DL of this size costs in bandwidth either by the pipe speed or data transferred. Remember it's not just YOU getting the file it could be 100 x 1.6 GB probably more. That could cost these guys who are supplying big pipes out of there own pocket a lot.

If your ISP is limiting P2P or blocking it then start complaining that it is not just used for music, movies or other copyrighted material.

IU saw one thread about someone offering DVD's in the General forum I think...

To make µtorrent run properly turn off DHT and PEX and use protocol encryption so your ISP can't recognize that it's bit torrent traffic going through.

Also use a port that is not a typical bit torrent port or the port of another p2p software, I suggest using ports from 50000 and above.

Set up 70 - 80% of your brutto upspeed limit (DSL sync value) as torrent upspeed.

Consider using http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traffic_shaping, either built-in of a router or just use cFosSpeed or cFos.

I doubt it, direct link is probably going to go from start to end (unless you have an accelerator) , torrents bring random chunks of the file then reasemble it. Try it let us know how it works out :D

DEV's, next time you release something this big, rar it up into 20meg rars and include an .sfv file as I'm sure there will be a lot of disgruntled people with corrupted files at the end of this! at least with the .SFV file you can run a checker which tells you which 20meg files are corrupted, delete them and run the torrent again aiming at the rest of the files :)

and thankgod AOL didn't decide to cap me to 70-80kbs this evening of all evenings.

I am the webmaster of the .:iGi:. clan website, my participation in the gaming end isn't at a high, but i told the guys i could take at least 1,000 downloads, the host is based in the Netherlands so download speeds should be pretty good. Unfortunately due to lack of communication between myself, the testers and also myself not really having permission to have obtained this file, i never managed to get it up in time, i am currently downloading through the torrent.

However, if someone would be willing to upload it to our FTP server, i would be more than willing to create an account for them to do so!

If not, i reckon i could have a direct download link by Monday night at the latest! But as i say i can only take on about 1,000 downloads, and i have no guarantee on what the speeds would be like.

If you think your ISP limits or kills torrent then Gordon's tips are good.

Thats exactly why torrent isn't as great as it is made out to be. People either don't know how to seed, or they don't care to.

YoJimbO you'll find the torrent is faster than direct download because most direct download links are maxed out.

you'll also find it will be slow at the start, and make sure your ports are open otherwise itll always be slow.

The best way to download is most likely via BitTorrent. It just makes sense for something that is popular, large and needs wide distribution since the load is shared amongst those that are retrieving it. I just started downloading it a few minutes ago and I'm at 500 kilobytes/second (~5 megabit). Not quite the full speed of my link but pretty good. Just make sure you open up port forwarding to your machine for the appropriate TCP and UDP ports and you'll find a lot more peers and get higher speeds. I'm also uploading at just under my max uplink speed, so I'm definatly contributing :)

Every one try first with DHT on, dont turn it of at the begining.


DHT is a backup line, try to use a BitComet, it's much faster


Properties

DHTs characteristically emphasize the following properties:

* Decentralisation: the nodes collectively form the system without any central coordination.
* Scalability: the system should function efficiently even with thousands or millions of nodes.
* Fault tolerance: the system should be reliable (in some sense) even with nodes continuously joining, leaving, and failing.

A key technique used to achieve these goals is that any one node needs to coordinate with only a few other nodes in the system – most commonly, Θ(logn) of the n participants (see below) – so that only a limited amount of work needs to be done for each change in membership.

Some DHT designs seek to be secure against malicious participants and to allow participants to remain anonymous, though this is less common than in many other peer-to-peer (especially file sharing) systems; see anonymous P2P.

Finally, DHTs must deal with more traditional distributed systems issues such as load balance, data integrity, and performance (in particular, ensuring that operations such as routing and data storage or retrieval complete quickly).

yeah I understand the frustration with torrent, it took me a couple tries to get the thing working properly. It can also depend on your ISP and whether they cap or block torrents. Once it is working it is very good, but for the Dev team it is the least expensive way to begin the distribution.

S.O.P
2006-11-12, 02:27
While I agree with the load sharing balance of torrents to save money for bandwidth, perhaps a fool-proof guide should be released with each news announcement regarding torrents. I'd say the majority of people complaining are the IE6 kind of user, right click and save target as.


Now, for torrent users, I personally use utorrent. utorrent comes with a option called 'Speed Guide' which is where you insert your connection speeds and it decides on the best settings. Im sure Azureus has a similar option, I don't use it though because its bloaty and utorrent is slim and does the same job.

Also, you MUST make sure your NAT settings are correct, which is the PORT you have forwarded to your IP. If they are wrong, the download will be slow.

http://www.portforward.com/ will describe to you how to forward ports for a specific program. The 'Speed Guide' section in utorrent also has a button to test if you have your port forwarded correctly. Use it.

Also note, the download speed will vary and will always ramp up as you connect to more seeders and peers.

Try reading the FAQ so a lot of this is explained - http://www.utorrent.com/faq.php

And very important, and has been stressed by other posters, leave the download seeding until you get AT LEAST a ratio of 1 (downloaded amount vs uploaded amount). Sure, pause it while you have a game, but reenable when you aren't using the computer, its the kind thing to do. And spare a thought for some of us in Australia with artifically limited ADSL speeds.

Do any of the devs know if Fileplanet will be getting this file today? or at all?

I uploaded the file to fileplanet as soon as it was available. They have a trouble ticket pending to get the file moved, once that's resolved it'll be available.

As has been previously pointed out by various people, make sure you limit your upstream to 70-80% of your upstream and not higher. Azureus has an auto speed option which does that for you.

So far about 50% of people have kept seeding after the download. Thanks! For those who are considering turning it off after they're done downloading, please consider simply limiting the upstream to something that won't harm your playing but still contributes.

eggman']And we worked on solving that problem from about 9pm PST until around 4am this morning so we could make the release date.

As a result of making a new build and replacing the other one, the direct download links will take a little longer to get into place.

You can whine about those when we put them up ;)

utorrent comes with a option called 'Speed Guide' which is where you insert your connection speeds and it decides on the best settings.

Which is useless for people with 4mb connections as there aint an option for that, it goes 2mb then 10mb:(

So does anyone know what my settings should be on µtorrent for a 4mb connection?

My Speeds are currently this:
D: 70.5kb/s and U:20.Kb/s

they do change though and seem to spend most time like this:
D:53.9kb/s and U:41.3kb/s

Giving me an eta of 5h 36m, I have NO FIREWALL on and always disable everything to do with it when downloading massive things like this.

2006-11-12, 09:48
Set about 80% of your brutto upspeed (which what are you synced to DSL) as maximum upload speed on bit torrent.

And consider using traffic shaping like as cFos or cFosSpeed does - it's working well for me for a long time.

as i said before, its not the settings!
it actually tuned down the settings, and the same thing happened!

The map is demanding and you are correct, it is NOT your g-card. Most likely you don't have enough ram. The large maps require more data. The less data that can be paged into memory the more lag you will get. When you move from one part of a map to another the data for the map must be read off your hard drive and put into your ram, and stuff that is in your ram must be paged out. So during this process the bottleneck becomes your hard drive speed, not your CPU or Video card.

I get zero lag on the maps with a worse video card. I have a 9800 Pro, but I have 2 gigs of fast memory (2-2-2-5) and a 10k raptor hard drive.

So 2 things to improve lag are more ram and faster hard drive.

BrokenArrow
2006-11-13, 22:02
Dizzy is right, a 6800 gpu can run everything in BF2 at high, it is the issue of RAM for the most part that makes these maps run. I get no lag at all playing any PR map and all my settings are maxed (except sound, which is high and not ultra high).
