I've been playing Project Reality for almost 2 years now.
Got this issue today, when I uptaded my videocard drivers.
I also switched to using my 32" tv instead of my old monitor, so I have to play at a different resolution
Old resolution was 1366*768
New res is 1920*1080
When I start the game, by either shortcut or whatever, it crashes. So i ran it in windowed mode to see what is causing my problems. This happens:

Edit: fixed this. Apparently had some conflicting resolution settings in the Video.con file. Finding the conflict and rooting it out worked like a charm. Now enjoying glorious PR in glorious HD, on a bigger screen

In-game: molcandr

Ive been reading throw this thread and i still have found nothing that fixed my problem. I just got battlefield 2 and it still works but when i try PR it shows the start up pic then goes to a black screen and back to my desktop. I have windows vista 32bit. i tried running it on administrator nothing ive tried this

WARNING! You must run Project Reality by running PR.exe, not BF2.exe.
Press ALT+F4 and update your shortcuts!

I have a solution to this that will most likely work. I recently got a new PC that has windows vista and had to struggle with this problem for long. Here's what you should do.

1. Move your pr.exe (text file and launcher) to Program files (x86) --> EA Games --> Battlefield 2 - folder (or wherever your BF2 is installed)

2. Then right click on the pr.exe game launcher and choose properties. Then click on compatibility from the upper bar. Click a check mark on the box that says something like "Run in a compatibility mode" (Don't know the exact words as my vista is in Finnish) and choose windows XP service pack 2.

3. Just to be sure, do the step 2 to any pr.exe launchers you have.

4. Also don't forget to check that your PR shortcut's path is to ""C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\pr.exe" +modPath mods/pr +menu 1 +fullscreen 1"

and still nothing can anyone help

Talking Re: Windows Vista Users - Troubleshooting Guide for PR

I have figured out the problem....... (even though i am the creator of this post) it turns out that certain version of PR doesent like Vista..... and some maps are to large of a scale for the vista computers motherboard to load(ex. ramauel and the one with the chinooks its Canadian army VS talibian i think) anyways the motherboards programing is to old (ex. 32 bit has a harder time loading maps than a 64bit) there for a computer like my inspiron 530(with out extra power running to grafics card) could not work on certain versions of PR(versions under .957 are more likly to not work so i suggest getting a better grafics card or more energy going to your current one if you wanna play under Version .957 or PR)

Not the place for intro's but never mind......This is the only post i've found that is remotely close to my issue, that being said i've yet (unless i'm corrected on this) to find anyone who uses STEAM to play BF2....Many years ago i had all the disc's and stuff (but we wont go there), so anyway i now use STEAM...the line of code/path is nearly the same except for the STEAM bit instead of EA Games... I've tried altering things and moving things and that went completely pear shaped!! so ended up deleting BF2 and re-D/L it..
After being told about PR and how good it is, and was looking forward to having a go, but i'm not clever with figuring probs out despite my age.....

Any help spelt out in a kind of idiots guide would be very much appreciated...

Installed BF2 via Steam. All up to date.
Installed PR.
Launch from desktop.
.exe starts running.
PR logo graphic appears on screen for 10-30 seconds.
.exe terminates, graphic disappears.

Any solution to this?
