Hello. I'm a member of Contra Project Team and I'm mainly a mapmaker.

Dr. Thrax is one of the two GLA generals with the best defensive structures. Purchase Scorpion Rockets, you don't really need all that much at rank 1 if you are able to hit-n-run effectively (count Mortar Buggies in this situation too). We'll think about Toxin Bunker.

Number of super weapons is hard-coded. We can use any number as a limit, but that will also be the same number for Tournament Mode.

You will probably have problems such as missing unit voices and cameos.

You've made a good evaluation of the AI in its current state. Some of the generals look strong and others look weak because of the problematic Skirmish AI in the latest version. Most of the super units (you mentioned Infantry Battle Fortress) can survive a direct super weapon blast. However, this is not a balance issue. Nuclear Missile costs $5000 and it should not outperform the Battle Fortress ($7000). Watch online games on YouTube, you'll see that super units are defeatable. Radiation and toxins are not really effective against super units. Playing with AI would feel different as it does not take logical decisions, which causes its easy loss of units and structures, or has the upper hand because of the cheats (rank and money). I am trying to fix some of the AI problems in the last few days.

What happens if you choose a different general?

It's Generals music by Charlie Lockwood, originally made for Generals:Enhanced mod.

Not soon. We are not yet working on it and I can't say for sure if we ever will.

Click the Exit button on the launcher. It converts all Contra files to a fake file extension so that they are not used when launching Generals. If this doesn't help, reinstall ShockWave.

Do you use Contra Launcher? Contra detaches itself from Zero Hour on exit. I don't see a reason why it wouldn't work. However, if you installed Contra manually, you will have to move some of Contra's files away from the main folder.

There is nothing to approve. The addon is already uploaded. What do you mean by "move it here"? It must stay in the addons tab.

GLA Toxin and GLA Demolition AI have this problem. Try playing against other generals.

Do you get this when launching the mod or in the middle of a match?

This is too much customization. It's not as easy as creating a .txt file.

Haven't heard of this crash. What about Skirmish and Challenge? What about vanilla Zero Hour Multiplayer?

Add more AI to your team. Don't play against Cyber and Air Force. They are the most aggressive.

Restart the map. It works 50% of the times. If you get stuck, restart again until you pass the intro. It's a strange bug.

Version 008 is finished. We have not yet decided to abandon the mod. If there is any progress soon, it will be released as patches, not as full versions.

Select Dozer and search for Hadron Collider building (icon is the same as in powers menu). You must build it with Dozer. I don't know how else to help you find it.

None. However, you can create your own map and place Boss dozers.
