Firstly, the Project Reality Team would like to say a big thank you to all those who attended the team's inaugural Project Reality Conference - PR CON 2011. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as the team did, and it was a fantastic opportunity for us to mingle with a cross section of the community who play PR in its various guises.
So why the News post?
Whilst PR CON 2011 served a purpose of bringing the developers and community members face to face, we should not forget that the event was organised as a charity event, in support of Help for Heroes.
In light of this, we would like to announce that from now until 1st October 2011, all donations made via the PR Donation System will...
The award winning Project Reality Team is proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA!
After countless hours of development, thousands of code changes and an intensive testing period, we are pleased to announce the general availability of the Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA modification. You can download and install the mod one of three ways. The easiest way is via a self-installer.exe. The second is to use Desura, a powerful digital distribution application.

To avoid any potential problems, we strongly advise all users to use either the self-installer.exe or Desura to install the mod.

Although there have been several changes...
As most of you are all already aware of, the upcoming release of the Project Reality: ARMA 2 modification is going to be BETA only. The primary goal of this first release is to incorporate the Project Reality style of gameplay into the ARMA 2 game. With that said, some assets have not been included in the v0.1 BETA build. However, we have included a few placeholders to cover what assets did not make it in. The aim of PR:ARMA2 remains to thoroughly test the PR gameplay and ensure we prove the concept before we continue adding other assets into the mod.

After the release of Project Reality: BF2 v0.96, there were a few critical issues discovered that could not be resolved via a server side hotfix. So, it was decided to release a client patch to fix these issues.
