You don't need to uninstall the mods. If you get an error about something like "Cannot create a file which already exists", replace your Contra Launcher with this more recent one: Forums.revora.net
Crash logs give no useful information. The only solution is to wait for the next version where the known crashes will be fixed.
Try the provided solution from Joshua Martin: Tomshardware.co.uk
Is your graphics card good enough to run the game?
Minimum system requirements for Generals: Cncnz.com
Use infantry to capture it.
Reinstall Zero Hour.
Propaganda Crawler is slightly improved now.
Not possible. Engine limitation.
AI bugs will be fixed in 009 Final.
The max rank is 6 in Beta 2.
The first one.
Go to the Data folder and search for files with .csf/.str file extenstion. If there are any, delete them.
Otherwise, I can only advise you to reinstall Zero Hour.
I think your issue may be caused by the sixth rank. Did you have rank 6 at the time Sneak Attack was greyed out?
Did you install the mod manually? If so, make sure that you renamed !Contra009Beta2EN.ctr to .big.
Nothing seems wrong to me. You're literally the first person to report this bug. I can't see why this is happening. Can you upload a screenshot or something?
I'm doing my best to fix all the known errors for the 009 Final release. The game does not provide any crash error logs, so the only way to detect these errors is to play more and pay more attention to what's going on. Anything suspicious has to be reproduced and confirmed it's crashing the game. Fixing errors takes less effort and is less time consuming. Don't forget that Generals always used to crash randomly. Most of the time, we can't tell if the crash is related to a mod error or not. By looking at the changelog I'm making, I can tell you that the 009 Final will be more stable in terms of errors and performance.
Yes, it's changed.
If you use the launcher, you don't have to rename anything. It does everything for you automatically. To avoid a known crash in Beta 2, do not put Laser AI players in Skirmish and don't build Squid Drones.
Avoid having Laser AI in Skirmish on 009 Beta 2.
Rename only if you installed the mod manually.
Working on it.
Replace Contra Launcher in your ZH folder with this one: Forums.revora.net
That text file contains information about the crash. Don't get mad, I tried to help...
Go to "C:\Users\*USERNAME*\Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data", open "ReleaseCrashInfo.txt" and paste its content here.
Extract the downloaded Zona_12.rar file to your Zero Hour Data Maps folder in the C: drive. It should be something like: C:\Users\*USERNAME*\Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data\Maps. Then open up Contra, click the map selection button and then the "Unofficial maps" tab. If everything is correct, you will see the AOD map there.
Contra 008 Beta has three files which you have to delete:
There is one fan-made AOD map compatible with 009 Beta 2. Link: Moddb.com
To play the map, put an enemy Laser AI in the top left corner position. Official AOD maps will be made in the future.
007, 008 and 009 all had Beta test versions, so we used Final to distinguish them. When there is a truly final version, it will be explicitly stated and the release will most probably be called "Contra Final" with no version numbers.
We're not so close. There will be new content, changes and fixed errors as usual.
The known problems causing crash in this version are:
- Squid Drone, built by either you or the Laser AI.
- Granger Challenge map when you have units close to his base.
