MAC GAMES PLAYER (yes, Virginia, we do exist). Mostly CnC Zero Hour - mostly because of the great gameplay and the great mods. Not an FPS'er (gives me wicked vertigo unfortunately), or an MMPORG'er or w/e the hell it's called. RTS all the way, and TBS ONLY if it's a last resort. Also play on XP side: Sins, Rise of Legends, W3 and starting to try LOTR-BFME2 n ROTWK - again, for mods! IF YOU'RE A MAC GAMER AND NEED HELP WITH INSTALLING MODS OR ANY TECH ISSUE WITH CNC ZH FOR MAC, PM AND I'LL DO WHAT I CAN. Top 5 ZH Mods: 1. Contra 005 (best AI EVAH, just wish they'd fix the bugs FINALLY), 2. Shockwave, 3. Retarded, 4. ProGen, 5. Project Raptor -- Haven't tried: AllStars, Light of Five Stars.

Sorry all, been IRLlin' it too much...So ROTR 1.7 still has same AI crossover issue I'm guessing- damn shame, too because it's a hell of a nice looking mod and the Navy is top notch (at least until Tidal Wars comes out- some heavydude-y code warriors in that group!)

Don't do much Hamachi, but maybe one o' these days- been playin' Remix, but kinda over it (the heart, man, she can't take all that craziness in teh first 10 minutes!). Gonna try out NPM's mod for awhile - always wanted to, just never found the time.

TIRED OF USING YOUR DISC? Or did your optical drive die (again again and again- thanks Apple)? Here's how you play ZH without the disc:
0) Purchase Toast; make sure you install with 'Mount It' option.
1) Open Disc Utility
2) Go to New>Disk image from Folder
3) Make Image from your ZH folder (vanilla install!)
3a) Make sure you name it Zero Hour, and options should be set for Read Only & DVD/CD Master.
4) Make Disc Image - save on your desktop
5) Now, start Toast, then select Disk Image, select your ZH image, click Mount - the 'disc' of ZH should appear on your desktop.
6) Click play on your ZH shortcut (or app in your App folder- w/e)

Note: this is NOT CRACKING THE GAME; you must have a purchased (or an archived/disk image) of the game itself in order to do this. But thanks to the miracle that has always been OS X (for now), who needs the damn disk??? (esp, when your Apple warranty replaced optical drive was manufacturing DOA that apple kept replacing in your Mac FOR DIFFERENT THREE TIMES).

Oh and before anyone sez, 'you can just do this with Disk Utility!!! n00b!!', no you can't, to the best of my knowledge (and believe me i tried).

What you need is for the ZH install to 'see' the disc after the disk image has mounted; Toast does that thru it's mounting - DU doesn't. It just flat out doesn't. If there's another freeware program out there that did what Toast does, then LMK! Or if there's a way to GET DU to present the mounted image as a disc, then also LMK!

Hey Smacky. I just got ROTR again. I got Windows XP, and the Ai is insane, like contra insane. I did a few modifications and I ended up having 6 battalions at my front door.
Project Raptor's Demo General has wicked Ai aswell.

C&C Escalation Remix. The sister mod of Contra. Craziest AI ever. Beats out Contra AI ANY time.

i never saw this, but 2 years later...and it's pretty funny how far the high and mighty can fall - PC games are dying, consoles are looking over their shoulder at the iPhone and iPad, and the App store has given out 5bn or something to developers since it started?

Eww, windoze phone! haha!
