Project Reality v1.4 Changelog (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f604-pr-changelogs/143426-pr-bf2-v1-4-0-0-changelog.html)


Download & Installation
If you are new to Project Reality, visit the downloads page (https://www.realitymod.com/downloads#bf2) to download the standalone v1.4 installer.

If you have already installed Project Reality: BF2 v1.3.9, simply press "PLAY" in the launcher and the automatic updater will handle the rest! If you once took part in map events containing Bamyan, Goose Green or The Falklands, please remove these maps from your installation to avoid issues.

If you have installed an older version than Project Reality: BF2 v1.3, you will still need to download the full PR:BF2 v1.4 installer, since an update from v1.2.1.0 or older to v1.4 is not supported. If you do not play other BF2 mods, you can also uninstall Battlefield 2 to save hard drive space.

You can find the detailed PR Installation Guide right here (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f27-pr-bf2-support/99834-project-reality-bf2-installation-guide.html).

you know, I don't care about PR 1.4 too much ( at least I care ), All I care is this part ---> "We are working hard on PR:WWII",
I am already hyped for PRWW2, now all developers are free to work on glorious prww2 so we will see prww2's final release with 10/20 new maps in 1 or 2 months.
thanks in advance.

Hello everyone.
I would like to request correction on Russian Army faction:
The EMR camouflage needs to be changed to Flora camo on Assault on Grozny map.
The first EMR camo developed in Russia in 2008th.
The first Chechen war and the second Chechen war began in 11th December of 1994 and 26th August of 1999.The second Chechen war was over in May 2000
I will appreciate if my request will be seen.
Also I would thank the PR Dev team for the upcoming 1.4 update.I am looking forward to taste new additions.

Super hyped for the T-72S and the return of Coop Kashan! Thank you devs for bringing us this long-awaited update!

I wonder if the Type 99's name will be changed though. It's the ZTZ-99A2 in game, but irl the A2 has the short chassis with large lower glacis reminiscent of the Type-90IIM, along with the new, large boxy turret with composite modular armor. The in-game version is the base variant of the Type 99, basically the Type 98 prototype with ERA and modular composite on the turret.

Downloading the torrent at 1.1 Mb/s and seeding 3.5 Mb/s, hopefully it gets better. The installer download is dead slow, at least for me.

Exactly. I know someone made a direct download link for it. Was something like ancientdev.xxxxx/patch_1.x.x.x_to_patch_1.x.x.x. Forgot to bookmark it 2/3 years ago.

Anyone else finding that COOP has a new auto-balancing mechanism that can't be turned off? It seems that the bot ratio doesn't work properly anymore. The teams are apportioned correctly but player will be put on the smaller team, regardless of whether the bot ratio is 30 or 70 for example.

So I downloaded the game but it's barely working, freezes, waited like 5 mins for the game to start, PR intro rolled through with a solid 8.6 FPS, after loading a coop map, nothing happened just showed the map from afar, no spawn screen or anything... While installing it gave me warning that was something like: warning the installer can't get game version, it might beta or unreleased. What's the problem?

Is anyone else getting little stuttering on weapons/nades on Argeninian faction in falklands?

Yes there is massive stuttering when you use you irons sights at the airfield on falklands.

Rhino
2016-11-27, 03:04
Is anyone else getting little stuttering on weapons/nades on Argeninian faction in falklands?

It's called vertex wobble and its down to being so far away from the centre of the map, due to the way the BF2 engine was coded and now way around it unforantly. Luckily it dosen't happen much in the main combat area and as such, dosen't impact on gameplay too much and is worth the airfield being that far away we feel :)

My only gripe is that on Bayman the USMC do not have optics as standard for their rifles.

Also, I do not understand why in general the M4 is not the standard issue for USMC forces. It has been adopted as their issued rifle.

Scopes on a map that open would be OP. And from my exp the map works perfectly, both INS and AAS. Although 7 caches were maybe too much.

Decent update, the Falklands stuff is alright but it's nothing to drool over when it comes to infantry combat, it's just a dream for CAS players imo.

Other than that, great update, loving Bamyan the new map and the new flight mechanics are pretty cool.

Indeed, the Falklands map itself isn't the best infantry map by far, never was meant to be since the terrain itself is much lower quality than a normal PR map. What it offers more than any other PR map is the jet and infantry working together more, and in the future, also naval forces working with them too ;)

The Goose Green PR:F map however is a much better infantry combat experiance however if that is what your looking for, although if you want modern weapons and scopes, your better off with a normal PR map, since this is about old weapons and iron sights :D
