Welcome to Project Reality: Battlefield 2 (aka PR:BF2), a free to download game modification for the Battlefield 2 (aka BF2) retail Windows PC game. The focus of this mod is to rework the original game engine developed by Digital Illusions of Sweden (Dice) within legal and feasible constraints to create a more realistic combat environment for the gaming community. This includes adjusting various game play elements including physics, visual effects and overall game play formats. Along with changes to how the game handles, the Project Reality team has been introducing British, Insurgent, IDF forces, Canadian, and Russian factions, plus a number of community assisted factions are currently in the works to introduce even more factions to the virtual battlefields. This Mod is not for the masses, due to the fact that it has a much higher learning curve then your classic arcade game. This is the real deal.

Of course the realism mod would work on the Source engine, Insurgency in on the Source Engine. Although I don't think you'd be able to get vehicles to work very well.

R&L is fun, although it does lack vehicles. But it's more because the Source Engine can't handle vehicles and stuff like that. That's what we have Forgotten Hope 2 for ;D .

I would agree though, that this would have never worked on the Source engine and nothing like this would have worked on that engine. The BF2 engine was a great engine to choose to make PR on.

Again, I would agree the EA booster packs are REALLY weak. They're no where near 10 bucks a piece when mods like PR are much, much better.

I tried this, it's far too similar to bf2. All I want is BF2 with modifiable damages, speeds, everything so I can mess with the gameplay while I play.

Sounds like you need to go play BF2 again just to remind yourself how different it is.
