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Syria relies on mass numbers of outdated but cheap and reliable Russian equipment and fortified positions.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!

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. :)

שלום ליאור
אני חייב להגיד לך שאני מאוד נהנה מהמוד. למה אין לך זמן לעדכן את המוד? אני רואה הרבה אנשים שכותבים פה שהם היו שמחים אם היית מוסיף דברים חדשים למוד (גם אני הייתי שמח אם היית מוסיף למוד את אירן, טורקיה, אירופה רוסיה
וגם יכולות אוויריות לGLA).
איך אין לך זמן בכלל לעדכן את המוד. הייתי שמח לעשות את זה בעצמי אבל אני לא יודע איך עושים את זה ואני גם לא הייתי עושה את זה בלי אישור שלך או של ISOTX.
הייתי שמח לדעת.
בסך הכל תודה על המוד, אני מאוד נהנה ממנו:)
חג שמח

@roeigilat & @omri315 - Shalom!
As much as I would like to answer in Hebrew - this is an international website and this mod is called "a GLOBAL crisis" for a reason...
Please use English only. Thanks. 8)

There are few reasons why I don't have time to update this mod:

A) I'm not a kid. I started to work on this mod as a HOBBY back in 2007 when I was still a student at the university and released it in 2009. Nowadays I have kids of my own and a nice job in the hi-tech industry. real life.
So excuse me if don't have the time for this...

B) Generals was released in 2003(!) more than 12 years ago!! - It's an old game. a good ol' game! relevant even these days. But still old.
So as much as I like this game - I simply moved on.

C) This mod, as it is, is already flexible enough to let you simulate a LOT of situations in the Middle-East (including Hezbollah and somehow even Hamas, ISIS, etc.) - So I see no urgent need to update it.

Anyway - I'm glad you like my mod. Enjoy! :)
Happy Passover!

hi abra.
I'm guessing by the Comment Top your name is Lior.
It is also my name.
So first of all very pleasant.
Secondly, I do not know if you're aware of what you did, but you created an ingenious mode.
I personally aware of people over 40 years old, with a career and children and family life are filled,
Just can not give up this wonderful mode.
I'm also married with a child, and always find the time to vent anger following the war situation in the country on this amazing mode..
Although there are a few mistakes and mishaps, it is the best mode.
So really, well done.
PS I would love too like many others if you had time to update the mod

I really appreciate your kind words.
It's nice to know that people, even with careers and family, still play and like this mod. :)

אני גם הייתי שמח אם חמאס וחיזבאללה יצטרפו למוד מכיוון שזה האיום הכי גדול כרגע ויהיה מעניין לשחק את זה. גם אני אשמח אם תעדכן את המוד!

@omri315 Hi,

Hezbollah is already included in this mod (as a special ability for Syria).
If you want to simulate Hezbollah or Hamas separately - you can use the GLA Stealth or Demolition generals to simulate them (they look the same - they also have underground tunnels, and rocket launchers too - it all pretty fits!).

Happy Holiday! :)

Hamas and Hezbollah are NOT the biggest threat to Israel right now. They are just the immediate threat.
Iran is currently the biggest threat to Israel. Iran funds and arms both Hamas and Hezbollah and if it would gain nuclear capabilities it will be the only country in the Middle-East that could potentially jeopardize the very existence of Israel.

Love this mod. LOVE this mod. Just a few small things:

1) None of the labels work for units introduced by the mod. Hover the cursor over a Cobra attack helicopter either in the field or in your build menu, for example, and what pops up says 'MISSING: Object:IsraelCobra', same story for things in the Generals menu and other game interfaces. This applies to everything that isn't in the base game - structures, infantry, vehicles, it can make it difficult to tell what you're working with. It's like this from the base install.

2) Drones constructed by American vehicles (and things like the crop duster loitering near your base in the first American campaign mission) all roll along the ground instead of flying.

I had been considering including this into a mod I've been working on, a game adaptation of a John Ringo book (The Last Centurions). Development has been stalled for the moment, but I would hope to ask for your permission to use it if I do pick it up again?

Thank you again for making this. It adds a lot to the game.

1) All the labels A Global Crisis should work just fine.
Please make sure that you have the English version of Generals/Zero-Hour (the labels are associated to the game's language and in this mod there are labels only for the English version).
2) The drones also should fly normally in this mod.

My guess is that you probably have leftovers from other previously installed mods.
--> First, make sure that no other mod is installed (A Global Crisis doesn't work with other mods).
--> Then, make sure that the latest patch for Zero-Hour is installed (should be version 1.04).
--> If this doesn't help - I suggest to re-download and re-install A Global Crisis (maybe your current download is somehow corrupted).
--> If you still have a problem - uninstall Zero-Hour, then delete the entire Zero-Hour directory, then re-install Zero-Hour and re-install A Global Crisis.
Hope that helps.
Good luck! :)

If you want to use content from A Global Crisis in your own mod or for any other purpose - please contact me directly via a PM.
DO NOT use any content from this mod without my specific permission.
Thanks in advance.

I'll give that a shot. I'm running the 1.04 version, but it came from the "First Decade" installation, if that makes any difference.

That worked. Had to reinstall the patch so it would run without the DVD again, but it looks like my problem was that Cold War Crisis didn't *completely* uninstall itself. Thanks for the guidance, love the mod.

Hopefully this will also have corrected the issues I was having with no AI being applied in Skirmish mode on certain maps. I'll test it out.

The short answer is: Yes. It IS hard to make a new update/version of this mod.
(If it was easy you would've done it yourself, right?).

The long answer is: It's not that hard when you know what to do and how to do it.
BUT (and that's the real catch) - it takes a LOT of TIME!
Unfortunately, I don't have the time for making mods for games anymore - so just enjoy this mod as much as you can. :)

personally, I think that considering the fact that this mod was released in 2009, shortly after Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, 2 years before Iron Dome was even operational - this mod is still among the best Real-Time Strategy mods (if not the only one) that can actually simulate a war between Israel and terrorist groups - and it does it pretty well even these days.

(BTW, there's the "Hetz" Anti-Missile system in this mod, as well as other Anti-Missile systems that serves the same purpose as the "Iron Dome" - like the "Nautilus" laser system).

So as I said - enjoy the mod!

@Abra , you can make a mod of the last war of israel with hamas? Thats will be great.

Even now, with THIS mod version of A Global Crisis, you can simulate the last war of Israel with Hamas! :)

Israel is already a part of this mod so you can choose one side to play as Israel,
and the other side can play the GLA stealth or demolition faction to simulate Hamas (they look the same, they have tunnel networks, they have rockets and everything!).

In short:
Israel vs. Hamas = Israel vs. GLA Stealth/Demolition. ;)
