Specs are more than enough to run everything on max with 8x AA.

With the crashing problem, I don't know of a way to fix it; you'll just have to wait until someone knowledgeable turns up

My dad has a C2D 3.0GHz, 8800GT, and 4GB of RAM. I can run PR on that all high, with 8x AA. The lowest frame-rate I've seen is around 30fps, which was on Korengal overlooking the whole valley (which is basically the most detailed map of PR).

The 4290 is basically an 8800GT, maybe a bit slower. I don't know why it can't run PR!

No you don?t need to activate the mod.
I would say maybe you should uninstall BF2, delete registry entry of your BF2 and then try it again.
To do so go to start--> run (on XP), on vista/win7 just type in the search bar---> type "regedit"
---> Go to HKEY LOCAL MACHINE----> Go to "Software" ---> And find the EA Games or Electronic Arts folder.
Delete the entire EA Games or Electronic Arts folder.

Remember, uninstall PR first, then BF2 and then delete your registry.

As a matter of fact for me I have no registry entry anymore since patch 1.5, no idea why but most people do, so if you cant find a Electronic Arts folder or EA Games folder then don?t worry about it and then im sorry but I don?t know a fix either.

Except maybe.

Try this first before you uninstall!!!!!!!!!

Im assuming your running Vista or WIN 7..
Right click your PR.exe (the thing you launch your project reality with), properties, go to the compatibility tab and then check the box "Run as Administrator".
Then you should be able to access that drop down box right underneath it and press it and search for "Windows XP service pack 3".
Then press OK and then run it again.
It will prompt you with a yes or no screen and make sure to hit Yes when that comes up.

If that doesn?t work then im sorry to have wasted your time!
