  • Password Night - Monday, August 23rd - Featuring Burning Sands

    Password day today - Monday - August 23rd. I'll try to start it around 6pm CDT (I think that is like 2300 GMT).

    Here's a few hints of the surprise we'll be running today:


    Burning Sands (BETA)

    Originally posted by Rudd_medicman
    Hello Tactical Gamer Community,

    TG is known far and wide as one of the best PR servers currently running, thats not only because the players are nice guys who want to play together in the best spirit of Project reality; but also because there are a great many TG go-ers who are willing to put others before themselves, to put the team or community before themselves. To reward the players for making my personal PR experience as fun as I could hope, and to say thank you to the TG admin staff I present you with Burning Sands. Burning Sands is a 4k desert city map, inspiration came from two towns in Saudi Arabia as well as a couple of old PR maps (Ejod and kufrah). I have spent many hours working on this map and I hope you enjoy it. Please post any bugs up so that I can fix them. This is still a beta as there are known bugs, however they shouldn't interfere with your playtime :)

    Again, I hope you enjoy this as much as I have enjoyed frequenting the TG server.

    Live Long And Prosper







    Just enough of a tease, don't you think?

    We will be play-testing Burning Sands for [R-DEV]Rudd today and probably next weekend as well in an effort to help him complete the map in time for the next release of PR. If you haven't seen it yet, think of Kashan Desert combined with EJOD. There are lots of great places for asset fights and plenty - PLENTY - of places for the infantry as well. It looks like a fantastic map!!!

    Re: Password Sunday featuring a special surprise.....

    Unfortunately admin coverage is a bit of an issue today.

    We will have coverage tomorrow evening, though. Sorry to our euro friends, but sometimes things just don't work out.

    Password night will be run on Monday, August 23rd. We will feature Burning Sands exclusively (well, maybe a few other maps, too).

    Client Patch - Burning Sands

    4shared.com

    megaupload.com


    Both links are to a 4MB .exe patch - just download it and run it. It fixes the AAS problems we had on the map last weekend.

    We hope to get the show started somewhere around 6-7pm CST tomorrow. Be there!!

      If you don't already have the map, use the link in the first post. Follow the simple instructions to load the map onto your machine.

      If you already have the map or you've just installed it, use one of the two links in the second post to install the patch. The patch is a .exe and is easy to install. You will need the patch to play tonight.

      The server password can be found at the bottom of this post. Click it, read all of the rules, read what our expectations are of you during password night, log in and have fun!

            I finally got the installer to work and kept having PR crash a minute or so into the game.

                  Not to be a negative nancy, but same issue here. I managed to run the "constantly refresh for 61/64 and then type the password in master GWAM fashion" gauntlet multiple times trying different combinations of fixes (such as lowering texture quality, and doing a fresh install of the map) and it wont work. I don't feel like trying anymore but hopefully if someone figures it out before the night ends they'll post it here.

                    Mine doesnt even work at all. I extract to the levels folder, and everything is where it should be, and it still says I dont have the map when I connect.

                            I'm having the same problem.
                            What windows are people running, and are they playing through steam.
                            Problem may lie there.
