Generals tends to crash when playing against AI. If you open ReleaseCrashInfo.txt file, located in My Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data and it says "Reason Uncaught Exception in GameEngine::update", it's an engine failure. If it says something like "error parsing blabla.ini file, line blabla", then it's a mod code error. Long matches on large maps with AI are not recommended for ZH at all, not just Contra. AI causes the low performance and crashes in Generals. It would be great if you can find some real players to play with.

I have answered this question on the same page. The mod is not dead. We just don't really have much art to show as we were working mostly on code, testing, challenge and sounds. We make changes and communicate every day. The only occasion Contra dies without an announcement would be if all developers die. :)

No, we didn't abandon the mod. Progress on the mod is slow because me and dcesarec are the only active developers. I think it's time for an update. We may post a news update in the next few days.

There hasn't been any update for more than three months. Therefore, there is much less activity.

Contra does not work in conjunction with other mods. There could be some files from other mods in your directory that cause this problem.

Try running as administrator and in compatibility mode (choose Windows XP). If you don't have Zero Hour patch 1.04, install it, it's required.

We have had conversations with VectorIV, the creator of Enhanced mod. There is a little shared content between Contra and his mod. We made a few models for him in exchange for water and depth of field effects (present in both mods). Moddb.com

You have to build Command Truck from Factory (main building) to gain access to special powers.

It has been reported that challenge versus Air Force general crashes the game after 10-15 minutes.

To use powers as the GLA, you have to build Command Truck from Factory (the building where you train Workers).

Did you encounter those bugs in Beta 1 or Beta 2? I'm asking because "Zu Rong" was fixed in Beta 2 and renamed as "Zhu Rong".

We have received lots of bug reports, but we are not good coders. We use help from Anubis_theDark and Zeke ever since Creator abandoned Contra (and we didn't hear much from him since then). Do you wish to help us with coding? Can you still code Generals?

In 'My Documents' (usually at C:\users\YOURNAME\documents) there should be a folder named 'Command and Conquer Generals Data' or 'Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data', which was put there when you installed the game. You need to create a text file using notepad and save it into this folder. However, you must click 'save as' and change the type drop-down box from text file (.txt) to 'all files'. Then save the file as 'options.ini'

Before you save, paste this text into the file to get you started:

AntiAliasing = 1

What is the problem with network play?
How do you play single? Challenge or Skirmish? If Skirmish, how many AI players did you add and on which map? The game usually crashes on 8 player maps (less common on smaller maps with less players). There's a reported glitch in Challenge versus Air Force General, which always causes a crash. Challenge will be fixed in the next version.

It's a common error, which nobody has been able to get rid of. The Generals community has been living with it throughout the years... and sadly nothing can be done about it.

Persun, metaliduck doesn't get the error at game start, but after minutes of gameplay. In this case, mismatch is not caused by different files. His installation is OK.

Contra 009 RLM is actually based on 007. By RA3 they mean the RA3 Garena room for network play.

The background was changed because it was too simple. It is not worse than before.
