C&C: ShockWave is an enhancement mod for C&C Generals: Zero Hour.

The main goal of this mod is to make Zero Hour a more interesting game with more diversity between the generals, making you think twice before you select a certain general, and overall provide more choices, diversity, and strategic freedom than in Zero Hour - while keeping the spirit and design direction of the original Generals game and storyline.

ShockWave will include 3 new Generals in version 0.95, over 100 new units, tons of new structures, upgrades, maps and many other gameplay tweaks. ShockWave also provides completely custom made sound effects and music, new in-game weapon effects and visuals, bug fixes, and an improved battlefield overview with a higher viewpoint.

The 3 new generals - Deathstrike, Ironside and Leang will get their own general's challenge maps, and we will implement their voices, taunts and personality as EA intended sometime after version 1.1.

ShockWave runs closed and open beta versions, and we strive to preserve balance between all the different factions to make sure the game is equally enjoyable online and offline. Bug hunting is top priority for us as well, and ShockWave is one of the most stable mods out for Zero Hour. Even so, Shockwave 1.0 has just been released, and could still have some bugs that need working out.

- The ShockWave team.

Drop by our highly active forums to get tech support and have a matchup with other ShockWave fans online! (The Ideas and Suggestions forum has been closed as future content is solidifying and suggestions are no longer necessary.)

Please don't ask for the release date, or even an estimate, as there is never a release date. 

NOTE: Get support at the offsite forums instead. Before you ask, remember this: try a clean install first. (make sure you delete the folder are the uninstall)
- The install order is for the latest version is:   Gen.  >  ZH  >  ZH 1.04 patch  >  Shw 1.1
* If you're using The First Decade, you need not install the 1.04 patch as TFD comes with it.

Two suggestions. :p

1 - Add General Fai's map. :p
2 - Change General Ironside's pic to this - Img3.wikia.nocookie.net

And ShockWave would be perfect!

For those of you looking for the Patch I uploaded yesterday, I removed it because Moddb's uploads do not seem to be working very well. You can keep track of the patch beta at the SWR Forums here:

Otherwise, you can wait until I release a full version, and I will upload it here.

EDIT: This is also why it looks like this was updated yesterday.

The shell map does not work! Even after the XP SP3 compatibility setting. Can anyone offer assistance with this issue?! Using the .93 classic shell map I found in the addons section of this mod. Its not a critical issue, but still, having a silent menu and skirmish screen just seams wrong. That's all.

there is, I think contra has a map for him in their generals challenge. Im sure we will see one in here once they get a lull in the work load they have for rise of the reds. Heck we may see fai's map in rise of the red's general challenge once they get that mode ironed out for that mod

I have several mods (ProGen, nProject) that have a General Fai challenge map. I wonder how to add this map to ShockWave, as it's the only thing this mod needs!
