The award winning Project Reality Team (https://www.realitymod.com) is proud to announce the official release of the Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.16 BETA Patch!

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

The v0.16 patch is primarily a terrain pack that includes 2 custom terrains that are still in BETA and therefore should not be considered complete. The sole purpose of this BETA release is for the PR Team to obtain quality feedback to ensure that we are progressing in the right direction with the development of the new terrains. It does not include any changes which were planned for future PR:ARMA2 versions. Although the terrains may require further tweaking and optimization, we are confident that you will enjoy playing on them and hopefully find yourself engaged in some epic battles.

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 The Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.16 BETA Patch Here! (https://www.realitymod.com/downloads#arma2)

*** ATTENTION ***
It is highly advised you install the hotfix available here (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f440-pr-arma2-general-discussion/118611-must-read-v0-16-hotfix-new-post.html). It fixes graphical glitches and bulletproof trees on F.A.T.A.

Please note that there are two different downloads for this release. If you already have Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.15 BETA installed, you simply need to download and install the v0.15 to v0.16 "Patch". Otherwise, if you have any previous versions, or you do not have Project Reality: ARMA 2 installed at all, you will need to download the v0.16 "Full" installer.


New Terrains & Features
The following all new custom terrains are included in the Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.16 BETA Patch release:

Afghan Village - Desert terrain with villages, farmland and strategic river crossings.
F.A.T.A. - Thick vegetation, rugged terrain and dense urban areas.

In addition to these 2 new terrains, we have included some new features that we hope will improve gameplay. An always-on compass ribbon located at the bottom of the screen has been added which should come in handy when calling out bearings during a firefight. Also included on the in-game HUD is a stance indicator, displaying your current stance and whether you are in walk or run mode.


Project Reality: ARMA 2 Mod Support
If you encounter any problems while installing and/or playing PR:ARMA2, please check out the Project Reality Mod Support forum (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=449). If your problem has not already been posted by someone else or is not in the above known bug list, please do not hesitate to start a new thread asking for help. We will do everything we can to provide you with a solution, but we can't do anything if you don't ask first!


[RGG] Operation Clean Slate Event
The RGG clan is hosting an event on 2nd March 2013. Check out this post (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=118274) for more details and information. RGG have provided steadfast support for Project Reality and have graciously kept a dedicated PR:ARMA2 server up and running. We would like to thank them for their continued support and dedication to Project Reality.


Project Reality: ARMA 3
As many of you are already aware, the ARMA 3 public alpha will be released on the 5th of March. For more information about the release, read this (http://www.arma3.com/news/plans-for-arma3-in-2013) news post.

As we have previously stated, support for ARMA 3 is the logical progression of Project Reality. Therefore, we have decided to cease development of PR:ARMA2, and focus all our efforts on Project Reality: ARMA 3 (PR:A3).

We will be building PR:A3 from the ground up, initially concentrating on getting the important PvP gameplay elements in place. Other features and assets, such as units and vehicles, will then follow, but until we get our hands on the actual game and establish from BIS what is allowed, we simply cannot provide anymore information. Once the PR Team has a development plan laid out, we will make an announcement with more specific details.


PR:A3 Team Recruitment
The Project Reality Team is actively seeking developers for our PR:A3 team, in particular those with knowledge of modeling, texturing, config files and Oxygen. The more team members we have, the quicker we can get Project Reality: ARMA 3 into the communities hands! If you are skilled and knowledgeable with ARMA development, and would like to join our award winning team, please register on the Project Reality Forums (https://www.realitymod.com/forum) and send a private message to the PR:A3 Project Lead, [R-DEV]epoch (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/private.php?do=newpm&u=11246).


We hope everyone enjoys the Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.16 BETA Patch release! Please feel free to join us on our IRC channel (https://www.realitymod.com/irc) or visit our public forums (https://www.realitymod.com/forum) to discuss this and other news. Also, be sure to connect to Project Reality through social media to stay informed and receive up to the minute updates, the occasional leaked bit of information and more! See you on the battlefield!

Wow awesome looking maps!

One strange thing though, Fata was graphical full of glitches, same one's you see sometimes if you blow up a fob, but all over the place. Afghan Vilage had no glitches.

I disabled the overclock on my videocard and all the glitches are gone.
The strange part is that I dont have this on other maps.

have fun!

AusSnipe73;1870671']You do know we are seperate teams right?

Indeed. but I'm curious because 1.0 will be the definitive version of pr:bf2, and won't be too long till thats released. so will prbf2 the devs (who dont quit) move on to pr:arma3 or to pr:standalone or to the rumoured pr:cryengine 3....

it really makes little sense to support so many versions of the game, or to be so secretive :o

edit: just saw this (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f11-off-topic-discussion/118605-project-reality-2-pc-game.html), but think what I said still applies since its hasn't been officially announced here.

For this new, I don't think you need to post it at the frontpage of Realitymod.com because there is only one server running in Euro.

What you need to do is just sending a PM to those who are still playing PRA2. I believe it won't take you a lot of time since there are not too many players.

And, at the first sentence of the news update "The award winning Project Reality Team is proud...", what I want to say is that, your team is not the team that we appreciated. Team of PRBF is not the same as PRA2. Don't steal their name.

Arma2:PR is a great mod and I for one Appreciate the PR teams effort in making such a great mod.

I doubt you even tried playing on the European server, because you would have noticed the latency is insignificant.

Is that Possible? that would be great, can some confirm?

Server hosting for PR ARMA2 v0.16 BETA is not available, other than to the current approved server. In addition, support and development of PR ARMA2 has ceased.

We are now working on PR ARMA3 and will announce server arrangements when we are ready.

Actually PR:ARMA 2 is award winning in the category of Best Up Coming Mod during the MOTY Awards back in 2010.

Hmm, I wonder what will take the most time, making one thread for a release or finding everyone who might play it and send it to them.

How mistaken are you?

ARMA 3 is only available through Steam. So, yes, PR ARMA 3 (when released) will work with it.
