Default Common PR:BF2 problems + solutions

Here is a list of common issues associated with launching and playing PR:BF2.

Mumble Issues
Run mumble as admin to start with:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\bin\PRMumble
Right-clicking on the PRmumble.exe file, selecting properties and in the compatibility tab I checked the box in Privilege Level to run the program as adminstrator. Hope it works for you. Cheers.

Make sure your firewall isn't blocking the mumble connection to the server.

Don't forget to setup mumble on first launch. Go to the launcher-->options--> PR mumble tab and there press the Launch button. Open the Settings and there setup your input/output device. You can also try toggling some of the extra settings to troubleshoot connection issues.

Cannot retrieve account
Accounts from before v1.2 cannot be retrieved. If you have forgotten your pw, email or account name you won't be able to retrieve your account at all. Be careful when making them!

Login Issue 1004
See this dedicated thread:

Error 1301
See this dedicated thread:

Unable to rewrite CoreDLL.dll, code 5: access denied
This related to certain firewall and anti-virus applications. Make sure to disable these when installing and afterwards white-list the entire PR Installation folder in your anti-virus or firewall.

Bluescreen when loading into map
See this dedicated thread:

d3dx9_25.dll issues
Make sure to install the latest version of DirectX9! Found here:

Visual C++ issues
If the launcher gives you errors relating Visual C++ see this thread:

No desktop shortcut
The PR installer will automatically create the desktop shortcut for you.

If for whatever reason this does not happen, then you will need to make it yourself. Navigate to your PR directory, example:

(Default directory)
"C:\Program Files (x86)\project reality\project reality BF2\mods\pr\bin\"

Right click on "prlauncher.exe" (it will have a dogtags icon), then go Send To -> Desktop (Create Shortcut). Then rename it to "Project Reality", and then you can double click that icon to launch PR from now on.

Other recommended threads and ideas to fix common issues
-Install the latest .net framework! PR requires it.
