• Enhanced Your Battlefield Visual

With the variety of advanced techniques and efforts, your battlefield is now implemented with modern-like bloom & SSAO effects, C&C3; lightrays style and depth of field and also ambient reflective waters. The environmental objects have been added and updated so to be said, grass, bushes, trees, rocks, water waves and wild animals. The mod is also featured with some higher resolution textures such as terrains, rocks, decal effects, etc.

  • Embraced A More Realistic Weaponry

In contrast of the vanilla game, this mod allows you to have a chance of avoiding bullets, missiles and one-shot garrison kills. Furthermore, you can block your nemesis's path by destroying their or your own vehicles or aircraft, creating a destructible hulks and debris just as in THQ's Company of Heroes or you could destroy the bridges which are the paths of the enemy or set trees on fire as your enemy burn to oblivious death. Tanks are now implanted with self-defense machine guns, making them more suitable for front line engagements, artilleries are now more deadly and fearsome from afar while infantries are used in a role of strike force.

  • Expanded Your Army And Arsenal

Just like a typical mod for this game, this mod adds a variety of new things to each faction. Such, the famous Abram Tanks for the main NATO force, the furious wind of the east empire, Storms and Typhoons for the PLA forces and the infamous Katyusha for the GLA. But, that's not the main concept of this mod. This mod is to bring you a "enhanced" feeling of the game, not adding tons of unit to it. Each addition has a purpose and reason. Also, an unplayable faction has been altered to be playable, the "Boss" general aka Leang of the PLA forces.

  • Escalated A New Front

This mod will be featured with a brand new campaign based on a fictional story after the event of Zero Hour and also new challenge modes for those who hungered for more eradication and escalation which will all be remake from the original ones. Not only campaigns and challenges, this mod will also have new maps and mini-game maps such Stonewall, Blitzkrieg, Assassination, etc. (Noted that this is only a future plan and isn't yet in a procedure of production.)

If you're having frequent crashes or game.dat crashes/stop working:
Try put compatible mode on the launcher or the executable files to Windows XP SP3. Also, try changing the maps you're playing.
Alternatively, try: Forums.cncnz.com

I basically tired of answering the same questions, that's all. So that's what I'm going to do.

This is obviously an original soundtrack for C&C Generals Zero Hour Enhanced. These are composed by Charlie Lockwood.

This is the second SDK release for a modder. If you're not a modder or don't know anything about modding, don't ask how to use this, don't even think...

Has the devs or anyone who've played this mod tried it without ENB? Reading some of the comments about lag, I was wondering whether ENB was the main cause.

Nope, apparently, it was not ENB entirely. This causes by many factors.

About that news post...

I've been using TFD for quite some time now, and I've ran into a multitude of problems, depending on PC-specs, OS and such. I have a general fix for all of those problems already prepared.

First install the unofficial 1.03 Rev2 TFD patch. That is assuming you have a clean install. Link:


Then you install a package of 2 fixes which I found/put together myself (don't remember). Link's here, read the Readme.txt:


If you decide not to trust my hosted link, it's ok, I'll tell you what it actually contains. It's a nocd fix (my TFD didn't find my disk most of the time + convenience) and an options.ini file for a very specific problem concerning compatibility of SAGE engine games and certain PC builds on Win7/Vista. The error causes the splash screen to load for a long time and crash (took me damn long to find the solution). Yes, it kinda does work on BFME too. Theoretically the TFD patch should suffice, but these two fixes pretty much cover everything I ran into, and I've already seen it solve problems on all ~10 systems that had any.

This is a general fix, for all mods of every shape and size on every OS, all the PC builds it's been tested on and I sure hope it works for you. Feel free/you are encouraged to spread it around.

Enjoy! :)
