BetaMod is designed to add units and abilities locked away inside of the Zero Hour files and to include new ones for a more interesting gameplay experience without taking anything away that makes Hero Hour what it is.

If you want to add any media, that's fine by me, just make sure it's appropriate!

XAaronX has agreed to help me, but currently we've been having communication problems, he claims i'm not working hard enough, but when i try to get his help he's busy.

anyway, let me list the things i think are the most important in order to give you an idea on how progress will continue.

1. Life in general
2. Playing ZeroHour
3. Scripting for BetaMod
4. Fixing broken or missing Models for BetaMod (this might take a while considering i have no money to buy the needed programs, and my internet likes being a jerk, disconnecting when 3 minuets left in downloading 3DSmax...)

I'm pretty sure the files for the alpha build are for the original Generals, not Zero Hour. However, I still think the brown USA team looks cool, and will add it. (But I don't like it that there is only night models for the USA buildings, day models look normal)

I will try to make it possible to capture infantry.
USA: Iteragates POWs creating "phantom dots" (flashing orange units that will need to be confirmed by checking out with a unit/detector) on the map.
China: Converts units into there side (or into conscripts, I can't decide).
GAL: executes POWs. only useful with cash bounty.

The Battlemaster is actually a GLA Tank.
Also the Alpha Build can be slightly modified for Zero Hour. You can use some INI files, W3D ETC. to put in A unit from Alpha Build into ZH easily also.

I know the files work just as well for ZH as they do for Generals, The models just look like they belong to an early version of norm. Gen.

I think you mean the Scorpion because the Battlemaster is for china, or do you mean the Militia tank is GLA? It does resemble the Battlemaster, you probably got confused. The battlemaster is a T-55 tank, the Militia tank though technically doesn't exist for no tank i know looks like that, and I know tanks!

No, I'm serious. The Battlemaster was originally coded to be a GLA Medium Tank. The Militia Tank was their Light Light Tank. In the ZH coding, they never changed the Battlemaster's object Status. It's still called GLATankBattlemaster. The Scorpion(NV Scorpian with an A) used to be a GLA APC. The GLA also used to be called the Fundamentalists, and there was different sound/music tracks.

Actually, Progen only adds the non beta things that they left out right before they released the final game. ;) The Militia Tank actually used to be the Light Tank For GLA or China or something.

nope. ProGen added all cut BETA Generals stuffs such as POW logic and such.
Mammoth Tank, Hover Crusader, Militia Tank, etc. are ALPHA Generals stuffs.
