    PRTA Presents: Retro Map Pack Event | 18:00 PRT, 24th November 2018


    [​IMG]

    Server: PRTA - Retro Map Pack Event
    Time/Date: 18:00 PRT, Saturday 24th November 2018
    Server Password: TBA
    Maps: Ejod Desert, Battle for Quinling and Operation Phoenix

    Have you missed the old PR and BF2 maps? Have you noticed that hardly any server has these maps in rotation? Surely because people who have not installed the map pack would get disconnected when a server switches to a custom map.

    Well, we have noticed that too and that's why we are thrilled to invite you to the Retro Map Pack Event. If this event attracts people and is a success we might consider having these events more or less regularly - or maybe even open a server running the Retro Map Pack.

    About the Retro Map Pack:
    Read more about the Retro Map Pack and details of maps included on Project Reality forum here. The page has download links as well.

    Our goal is to enjoy the nostalgia and - as usual - teamwork oriented rounds of PR. We will play Ejod Desert, Battle for Quinling and Operation Phoenix.

    [​IMG]
    Anyone who attends the event will have to be be in the PRTA Teamspeak. Please show up at least 15 minutes beforehand to establish balance, while we wait the server to populate. We are looking for 35-45 players per team. We will play 1K retro maps until we fully pop.
    Rules
    Download and setup instructions
    1. Close Project Reality if it is running.
    2. Download Retro Map Pack Installer from this link or ZIP file from this link
    3. Launch the installer PR_Retro_Map_Pack_v2.exe
      or extract the ZIP file PR_Retro_Map_Pack_v2.zip to your Project Reality folder.
    4. If you like, you can take a look at maps before the event in local:
      1. Start Project Reality.
      2. Click Deployment.
      3. Click Create local.
      4. Select a map in map list.
      5. Click Add map.
      6. Click Deploy.
      7. Enjoy!
    Feedback

    Feedback after the event would be much appreciated and can be posted here.

    If you have already downloaded this using the link in the announcement, please make sure you install this version (it should auto update the maps to the correct version, thats all you need to do). If you HAVE NOT downloaded it you should be fine to use the link in the announcement.
