The award-winning Project Reality BF2 team is proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: BF2 v1.2!
This update focuses on a new master server backend, completely replacing the GameSpy servers (which shut down at the end of May). As a result, it allows players to continue enjoying Project Reality: BF2! But that’s not all this update will provide. It also comes with the long awaited Dutch Forces, new maps, illumination flares, and multiple bug fixes and stability enhancements.
Main features & changes
PRMasterServer support, which replaces GameSpy
3 new maps: Arctic Lion, Hades Peak & Shikotan Island
Illumination flares for Grenadier class
ZSU-23-4 Shilka SPAAA for MEC forces
Countless other bug fixes, tweaks and changes
Full changelog can be read here.
If you’re new to Project Reality, head to our downloads page and download the new version. If you have already installed Project Reality: BF2 v1.1, simply press “PLAY” in the launcher and the automatic updater should handle the rest!
IMPORTANT #1: Due to the new master server backend, your existing player profiles through GameSpy are invalid and will be deleted during the update, requiring new profiles to be made. The process of creating a profile through the launcher should be unchanged. However, this also means that your existing profile settings, such as video, audio and control configurations will be reset to default upon creation of the new profiles. Your existing profiles will be automatically backed up during the update process if you wish to manually copy existing settings from your old profiles.
IMPORTANT #2: Due to the urgent need to release a Project Reality build that functions independently of GameSpy pre-shutdown and our wish to provide you with some new content at the same time, you may encounter several bugs and errors. In particular, with our new master server and the new content additions. Rest assured, our developers and testing team are moving swiftly to handle any problems that arise. We appreciate your patience and understanding in the meantime. Relay any bugs or problems that you encounter to us through the PR:BF2 Bugs subforum, and be sure to follow the templates provided!
