There is no update from v1.2 to v1.3 using the automatic updater. All players must re-download and install the full version in order to update.
Please uninstall all previous versions of Project Reality: BF2 prior to installing v1.3.
In addition to becoming standalone, v1.3 brings many bug fixes, performance improvements, and tweaks to make the game more enjoyable overall. There are also quite a few new features to enjoy as well.
The PR Team is not done yet! We still have a lot of content for future releases, such as the Falklands and World War 2 addons, multiple community factions, and of course new maps and game features. Expect more information coming soon.
Watch the official Project Reality: BF2 Standalone trailer here while you download the new release:

Head to our downloads page to download the standalone v1.3 installer.
If you already have an older PR:BF2 installation, you will still need to download the full PR:BF2 v1.3 installer, since an update from v126.96.36.199 to v1.3 is not supported. Prior to installing v1.3, please make sure to uninstall any previously installed version of PR:BF2. If you do not play other BF2 mods, you can also uninstall Battlefield 2 to save hard drive space.
You can find the detailed PR Installation Guide right here.
Official Manual & Landing Page for New Players
With v1.3, we expect a rush of new and returning players. To help with the steep learning curve we have updated the manual to the latest version. We also have made a landing page for new players with additional information on how to join servers and general tips and tricks.
Hmmm... been 2 years since I last played any form of BF or PR. Methinks its time to download and try again!
How good a video card do you need for 1.3? I dont have a dedicated card at the moment so need to buy a new one...
Hey Bammo, good to hear from you again!
I manage to (just) run PR 1.3 on an old laptop with a P8400 CPU and GeForce 9300M graphics card.
It really doesn't like my big monitor, so I'm going to try run it in windowed mode (once I find enough time to play again).
I used to play 0.6 or something, on a computer that had onboard graphics, and while it wasn't the best it did the job.
So I know this is a stupid question...but how do I actually enable mumble now in 1.3? I see that it is "built in" and I certainly seem to be able to hear people talking near me who aren't in my squad but I can't figure out how to talk to them? What buttons should I be binding for PTT in mumble and VoIP PTT for my squad chat?
I used to bind the Squad PTT VoIP button to my side-button on the mouse but I can't make this work anymore in 1.3. I is bound OK in the controls section but nothing appears on screen when I push it...
Old1 have you uninstalled all previous versions of Mumble, BF2 and PR?
Also, make sure your graphics drivers are up to date and check your graphics settings before you boot the game
Hey KickAss, thanks for your reply, I have deleted all PR & BF2 also mumble.So guess I've not done it right??
Will get on TS and see if anyone can help me, I am really chomping at the bit to play a game
