This is an official map pack so servers will be allowed to host these maps without a password.

As part of the release, Hardcore Gaming (https://www.realitymod.com/prspy/prbf2/370193d9957447f59e2c72b40667138eaff363d9) will be hosting the map pack on their server this New Year's weekend! Many thanks for their support.

We'd like to thank authors over at Battlefield Singleplayer (http://www.battlefieldsingleplayer.com/) and Allied Intent Xtended (http://www.moddb.com/mods/allied-intent-xtended) for their work on Co-Op supported BF2 maps, some of which are featured in this map pack.

Great work guys, thanks again.

2016-12-31, 21:24
Re release .5 next.

2017-01-01, 01:06
This would be so dank if it were auto downloaded :/

2017-01-01, 01:42
Qwai was my favourite map at one point in development. I left ages ago when it was still in I think so I'll have to see if I can make space and get this installed. Nice idea :)

2017-01-01, 03:14
On some of those maps, it's been a good 10 years since I last played. Thanks for the good memories.

2017-01-01, 04:20
But we already have.. qwai.. river..?

2017-01-01, 07:37
But its got shit asset and flag layouts.

2017-01-01, 09:23
Hory shet, I thought Hamgyong Hills was 1k, I remember it being larger.

It had a longer view distance which might give that impression, I reduced it so it's less of a shoot-into-main-fest than it was.

I don't see Operation Outlaw / Birthday Party :(

That was a PRSP map.

2017-01-01, 13:37
Is there any other way to download these besides a 1 GB .exe through browser? ._.

EDIT: nevermind

2017-01-01, 13:51
Love the map pack! Keep up the splendid work Developers.

2017-01-01, 15:23

ejod desert, operation phoenix

2017-01-01, 15:33
If you want to see a full server, download the mappack and seed it.

2017-01-01, 16:02
hopefully we get to play these maps after this weekend. There are too much maps and the weekend is almost over... :(

2017-01-01, 18:34
Good good good

2017-01-01, 20:15
can we have all the old maps back ? :) size does not matter :) we need more maps soooo with old maps PR would be awesome .. sometimes i see map pack at forums but i do not understand how to install them and which servers support them .. (there are really good maps at the forum, why they are not included in PR ? iso size ? .. todays games sometimes 30gb .. .soo PR can be 15 gb with all the maps ? why not doing this ?

2017-01-01, 23:03

2017-01-01, 23:33

2017-01-02, 12:52

2017-01-02, 13:44
So... what is the alternative which you found?

None. After 20 minutes I downloaded it. The thing is downloading through this god damn browser is so slow compared to torrent or smth.

2017-01-02, 17:16
Bring back Op CandyBay!

2017-01-03, 03:53

works fine for me!

Thank you mate, i appreciate your help :D

2017-01-04, 17:42
WOW! Very nice map pack!!! But, I have a request to add *2* maps to this pack as an update, perhaps? those 2 maps are-

1. Strike at Karkand (I tried adding coop support using BD42's back to bf2 map pack, I did everything right in the SPeditor/LevelEditor in PREditor, but the bots are NOT responding or moving, so I give up, can u pls ADD this map with FULL coop support pls?????)
2. Kubra Dam (with full coop pls?)

also, I found something that might be VERY helpful for PR devs who want to give us more maps ;-p


^LOTS of maps, LOTS!

I will post FEEDBACK on this pack later.

again, thanks and good job, I hope you can add those 2 (and possibly MORE) awesome RETRO maps. I would really love it!

BYE, friends!

2017-01-04, 18:12
A PR Strike at Karkand would be fantastic, With original loading music and dramatically reduced fog.

Happy days. . .

2017-01-06, 23:51
My God..., let's play boys!!!!! \o/

2017-01-06, 23:56

works fine for me!

Ola Sangue!!!!!! Tudo na Paz!? how do i to install this pack? have some directory to move or add all files? or replace them? hugs!!!

2017-01-07, 00:10
But we already have.. qwai.. river..?

Yep, can someone explain this ?

2017-01-07, 14:20
Yep, can someone explain this ?

Qwai was redone some years ago, probably the v1 version.

2017-01-10, 01:19
Why not better put the maps to download through the launcher? so all the servers have these maps and people have the opportunity to play it, not everyone reads the forums. -smh

This ain't official at all.

Spyker! can you PLS PLS PLS do Kubra Dam and road to jalalabad and another RANDOM (surprise) vBf2 map? pls. I tried doing karkand, but its not working for some reason.

Also, I'm working on enhanced AI files for PR, would you like to help me TEST the ai files?

thanks for reading.


2017-01-13, 10:54

Steel thunder was my first love. And only Ejod could top its immersion :!:

2017-01-15, 00:45
I remember that there was a map called White Dragon 2. Can you add this map too? It wasn't so good but it was different from the standart maps and it was interesting.

2017-01-15, 14:16
The fact these are called retro now makes me sad, I remember when we just called them "maps" :'(

Really want to get back in to PR

2017-01-19, 00:13
Qinling was my favorite.

2017-01-29, 22:17

Qinling was my favorite.

Hell yes, hope some PR community soon hosts an event for that map

2017-02-12, 17:39
Hey, can you correct the link please ? Some browsers (i.e. Firefox) seem to have problems as the link (when you click on "download here") contains backslashes.

"http://files.realitymod.com\mappacks\PR_Retro_Map_Pack.ex e"

Of course one can correct that himself but it would be nice if the link would work right away for all. :)

Thanks for the map pack btw.

2017-02-12, 20:39
Link corrected.

2017-02-12, 23:24
i seem to be having trouble. the installer says the files are corrupted. i've redownloaded and tried again, run as admin, etc. what do?

2017-02-13, 15:22
I think "Seven Gates" was the first map I ever played.

2017-05-19, 17:32
PRTA has a dedicated server to run these maps, but if people dont download them, we arent going to play them

2017-06-02, 04:46
Can we just please include these maps in the PR default package already? The gameplay is fun, and is no different than some of the 'redone' classic maps like the new Mestia or Ghost Train. They're simple, fun maps, and they add variety, which is sorely needed on servers. These small maps would make great seeders, as opposed to running the horrible, horrible Fallujah skirmish again and again. Bleh.

Isn't that the point of having the auto-updated/stand alone app now, to push changes out so we don't have to visit these forums and dick around with downloads?

Just roll it in already.

Bandwidth and storage are cheap.
