A new war rages between Israel and Syria, while the American and Chinese forces continue to fight against the GLA terrorists. The United Nations are forced to take action, turning the local Mid-East crisis into: A GLOBAL CRISIS!  


Welcome to C&C Generals Zero Hour : "A GLOBAL CRISIS".

This mod brings Israel and Syria (from the popular MidEast Crisis total conversion mod made by Isotx, with their permission) with their full unique armies - into C&C Generals: Zero Hour expansion pack, with all of the original Zero Hour factions, campaigns and Generals challenge mission, BUT with some great new changes like realistic skins and models, new units and an additional United Nations Boss General!

Available Factions:


To counter their smaller numbers, Israel prefers high quality units over quantity, but their units  are very expensive.
- Specializations: Armored Division, Air-Force Commander, Sayeret Special-Forces.


Syria relies on mass numbers of outdated but cheap and reliable Russian equipment and fortified positions.
- Specializations: Republican Guard, Hezbollah Component, Iranian reinforcements.

- USA main faction.

- Air Force General.

- Superweapon General.

- Laser General.


- GLA main faction.

- Toxin General.

- Demolition General.

- Stealth General.


- China main faction.

- Tank General.

- Infantry General.

- Nuke General.

United Nations - Boss General:

General Leang, the Chinese Boss General from the last Generals Challenge mission, is unlocked!
Now she is a U.N. Boss General
That's why she controls units from all the original factions and even more! ... 
Additionally, the U.N. Boss General has some unique units too! (It's a little surprise... ).
The U.N. Boss Genera can be played as Human player side for Multiplayer and Skirmish games (No AI support except for the last Generals challenge mission).

If you liked Zero Hour and you thought it just needed a new look - This is the mod for you!

If you liked Mideast Crisis total conversion mod but you still wanted to play Zero Hour - Well, you don't have to choose anymore!

A GLOBAL CRISIS - C&C Zero Hour mod made by "Abra".

Yes! After almost 2 years of development and anticipation - A Global Crisis is finally released!
- go on, download it now, and play it:

For those of you who are new to A Global Crisis, this mod brings Israel and Syria (from the popular Mideast Crisis total conversion mod made by Isotx, with their permission) with their full unique armies - into C&C Generals: Zero Hour expansion pack, with all of the original ZH factions, campaigns and Generals Challenge missions, BUT with some great new changes like realistic models/skins, new units (for all sides) + an additional United Nations Boss General!

American and Syrian forces in combat Israeli and GLA forces
GLA Infantry in action!
Chinese Type-98 Tank American and Syrian forces
Israeli and Syrian forces UN Peace Keepers

This mod features:

  • Israel and Syria (modified from MeC) in addition to all factions from Zero-Hour + a special UN Boss General. That makes 15(!) playable factions!
  • Zero-Hour factions are modified and have new models and skins for some of the existing units (M1 Abrams-Crusader tanks, Humvees, Rangers, Rebels and more…) and some new units (M2 Bradley IFV, MLRS units, Machine-Gunners and more…).
  • For Israel and Syria: All units from MeC, including new units from MeC "lost Beta" version (Israeli Quads and Humvees, Hezbollah guerrillas…) + some new units and models, realistic skin changes and cameos. Few upgrade changes and some new abilities.
  • Boss General unlocked, heavily modified and turned into a UN Boss General!
  • Full AI support on ALL Skirmish maps (ZH + MeC + Bhones map-pack) for 14 factions (no AI support for the UN Boss General, except for the last Generals Challenge mission).
  • All original campaigns from Zero-Hour (which look MUCH better now with all the new graphics!).
  • All original Generals Challenge campaigns + Israel, Syria and UN Boss Generals Challenge campaigns (using the original missions + added support for these factions).
  • New logos, some new background screens + a modified ZH shell-map.
  • Updated game manual (You can also download it separately from here).

Please feel free to post any comments, feedbacks, suggestions or bug reports at A Global Crisis official forum

I'd like to thank all the good people who helped me with this mod and especially to Isotx and their team leader Vincent Van-Geel (Ome_Vince) for the permission to use their MidEast Crisis factions in this mod, for hosting this mod, and for their great support. (For complete credit list – see A Global Crisis game manual and the in-game credits).

I hope you'll enjoy playing A Global Crisis. :)

Before I download and install this mod, I want to make sure I'm not gonna shoot myself in the foot. I'm running Zero Hour from the First Decade pack with the unofficial 1.03 patch on Windows 7. Does anyone know if this mod is compatible with what I've got running? I'm hoping yes, it looks amazing.

As far as I know, you'll need the official 1.04 patch. Most ZH mods require it.

In the AGC folder in your C&C Generals ZH install folder, there is an uninstall executable. Alternatively, if you chose to add it to your Start menu, the uninstall option is there as well.

Will this mod ever have an update? (i dont mean that disrespectfully) i think this is an amazing mod! but the AI could use some improvement in my opinion for hard and medium armies! (and i personally would love to see ships) none the less this is a great mod! :)
