Default How Did You First Learn About Project Reality?

After a forum search, I could not find any other threads about this (surprising to me).

I've become quite curious recently, how did members of the Project Reality community come to first learn about this wonderful mod?

Did you hear about the game through a gameplay video on YouTube? Perhaps by searching for realistic war games on google? Or maybe a friend told you about this amazing game he/she had been playing?

Tell everyone about how you ended up here on these very forums! Perhaps this way we can learn the most effective ways to make the PR Community grow!

Personally, I first learned about Project Reality around .85 when the mod was featured in the main advertisements on the vBF2 HQ home screen. Downloaded it, played, and never looked back!

I learned it from Wikipedia. I like to Wiki stuff I like, such as songs, movies, and games, and I found out about PoE, AIX2, and PR from there. Sounded fun, but it look like, two hours to download 0.85 or 87, i don't remember.

I think it was (R-PUB) bosco, back when he was still playing SWAT4. Met him on a SWAT4 clan forum. I played another BF2 mod, OPK, quite regulary, and he told me about PR. At first I was sceptical about the gameplay changes (that was around .5 though, so the gameplay was very different anyway), but ya. Sadly PR soon got too heavy for my computer, until I finally got a replacement for it a couple of days back.

Was searching for help with BF2 CTD's and punkbuster kicks and ran across this. Started reading on the forum and watching youtube videos and downloaded. Fell in love a .856

Read about it through an Australian gaming community that is tied with my ISP that had a PR server once upon a time.
Bought BF2 off my neighbour for $10 and hijacked his old account
Fell in love with it instantly, first match was Barracuda skirmish with about 6 v 6 people about 2 weeks before 0.86 came out.

The little main menu advertisement thing in vBF2 that still says Armored Fury and Euro Forces available in v1.5.

I saw where it said PR was awarded mod of the year or something (or it might have been that v.85 was available.

So I downloaded it, installed it, didn't like it, uninstalled it. Downloaded v.86 when it came out as a second chance for PR and I've seen and played through every release since then.

That sounds EXACTLY like my story. I saw the Mod of the Year ad around .85, and downloaded the game. I first tried a round on Karbala, I was completely lost and clueless. Not to mention my framerates were awful. I uninstalled and maybe 3 weeks later gave it another shot. I spent alot of time on training servers, became obsessed with flying (Kashan was decent with fps) and eventually went out and bought some more RAM. The rest is history.
