Depends. We haven't heard from the team in a long time (maybe 2 years?), but they have released mini fixes over the 2 years. The AI is what they said they were developing, but we haven't seen anything in that sense. They said that they were finishing it in December 2007. And now it's April 2010. If the team is still here, then they should confirm what they're doing on the News section. That'd brighten my day up.
The AI has not been updated much (or maybe not at all), so most of them don't use many new units, and don't fire superweapons. It really needs updating :/
If you can fix the AI, so that it's up to the standard of Contra's or Vanilla Zero Hour, then this mod will be complete.
Here's some of the glitches i've found that i've found (they might be old) that you might want to fix:
The USA campaign doesn't work at all, you click on Campaign - USA - (any difficulty) and it doesn't show the film screen, and when you start playing, it's just the Shell Map, only with no Sea, or Units.
The GLA's campaign works fine.
The Chinease campaign works, apart from the final mission, Mission 5 (my favorite), it comes up with the Serious Error message whenever you try to play it.
The USA's Patrol Boat sinks under water, almost like a submarine, with the Laser turret showing above the water.
All Naval Yards can be built anywhere, try making a script to make it so that it can only be built at the water's edge.
That's all the ones i've found so far, i'll update it if I find any more.
The main problem with this mod is the AI, if you can get that fixed, then Destructive Forces will definitly get some peoples votes in Mod of the Year 2011.
Nah, Conta is very good, but it crashes alot on me. ROTR is good, but it doesn't give alot of new units and it doesn't have Naval units. Shockwave, well, the Installer is broken on my PC, so I don't know how good it is.
The ONLY problem with Destructive Forces is the AI, and XitArS is making it better, so when that's done, this mod will be perfect.
Overall, i'd say DF and Contra are about tied, with ROTR brining up 2nd.
whoops just realised the campagin is different
To tonuwarrior and powerlevel21: Did you try doing what your meant to do in the mission, sending Col. Burton to the mountain at top of map?
If you did that and nothing happended then the mission must be glitched or something.
Ok i thought this mod was very good until now, I just did a scan on the mod folder for any viruses and so far i have found 3 Trojan Horses. WHY IS THERE 3 VIRUSES INSIDE THE MOD?!?!?!?
And i know the directory is called
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Games\Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour/?????
I want to know that tracks name too its easily my favorite out of all the tracks!
Oh yeah and one more thing where could i find the 1st track on its own in the ZH directory (I can't find it in my directory)
and yes i still check up from time to time lol
Or just follow what me and Arcsign said above. If your still stuck though.
Anyone who doesn't no what the zero hour directory is:
For Vista: Open my computer, look in Program files (x86) (might be wrong name) and look for EA Games, Then zero hour, put it in there.
For XP: I'm not sure about this one, sorry. (might be the same as vista but different names.)
This is quite simply the best mod their will EVER be for zero hour.
Yeah thats what i did, i clicked the "check for updates" button but i already had 1.09 must of been a glitch or something. But its fixed now though.
Thanks i've FIANALLY got it working the patch that i used was glitched.
I've downloaded the one from the c and c website and it works thanks for all the help.
Ive got the Game browser the replay tab is there but not the mods tab.
I might have the files named wrong how should they be named?
(My computer is a Vista)
Yes ive got it to the maximum patch i can do.
And the other mod has its own launcher.
um... im not getting the mods tab ive download another mod and it works but you're one isn't any help?
This is STUPID i downloaded it installed it (finally figured out how) and what do i get!!!???? A VIRUS thanks alot!!! Now im gonna have to reinstall windows thanks ALOT!!!! AGAIN!!!!
I'm running out of ideas on how to install it.
If i put it in the main directory (for zero hour) in my documents doesn't work.
If i put it in program files (the one that useually works) it still doesn't work.
Is it actually installable?
If so plz comment on the page!

Whoops just found it LOL
I need help how do you make it run (Dont know what RA3 control centre is)
Dont listen to them i think its BRILLIANT now i can go nuts on building without power or money problems! (I'm NOT being carcastic)
