CWC is a C&C Generals Zero Hour Total Conversion and also works with "The First Decade". It takes place from 1980-1989 and it features realistic units from the 80's.
We want CWC to be a mixture of realism and fun. CWC is more realistic than vanilla Generals, with real life weapon systems and side specific characteristics.
CWC offers 2 factions: Russia and USA. The Russians tend to use tanks and artillery (for example: T-72 / T-80, BM-21, 2S1 only to mention a few) while the USA rely on aircraft and high tech units (for example: F-15, F-16, F-117, A-10 etc.).

Also we have a lot of infantry in the game, not all of them are just cannon fodder. So engaging a T-80UK with a US Rifleman won't be a good idea. Other infantry units can be a real pain in the ass to armoured units though. We want the players to use more infantry than in regular Generals, where infantry wasn't the big deal. In CWC Infantry can be very useful, even against tanks if you have LAW/RPG-Soldiers.

Just so you guys know, there was a mod on Moddb that steals from most decent mods for this game. They are still stealing **** but have been removed from the site, through they are still using a lot of CWC vehicles such as the chinook and its tethering mechanic.

amazing mod. both graphics and gameply
but...idk...the reflex and reaction of the AI units are WAY better than mine...plus the tanks view rang is kinda low i think.
and it would be cool to see germany and in this game too
or some other nations as well but its cold war so..its k
but my only problem is with the reflex and reaction of my units...and the tanks view and shooting rang should be a little higher!
BUT i like it ^^
i hope the team makes more modern mods like this and adds more stuff to this game as well <3
keep up the amazing work guys :)

I do agree with you, but, sadly the guys that worked on this mod are very busy with real life, they have families, a full time job and other stuff like these two. Everybody would like to see the EU faction, even the developers, but for now what you have to say is a sad goodbye to the development of this mod. I up-voted your comment, because, you do have a point.

I keep getting the "missing ssleay32.dll" error only when trying to launch this. Vanilla Generals: Zero Hour works fine. Please help me.

This mod is dead. But it is one of the best ones out there. I give it a solid 10/10 IGN rating.


Old, but, gold.

Thanks for the nice words guys (all of you). :)

@nukebox: Yes it kinda is. And even tough some players wish we would work on another project, we simply don't have the time anymore. All of us work in full-time jobs now and some have families to take care of. So there simply is no time for projects like CWC (or CWC 2) or anything like that anymore. Sadly.

But CWC will always be our "baby". We enjoyed the time working on it and we all learned a bunch while doing so. CWC and it's community will always have a place in our heart. <3

I think you guys have a lot of talent. Something really unique and special about CWC was this feeling of progression that I got when advancing to new generals ranks and unlocking more advanced units and technology. IMO the best way to implement a 'level up' system in the game. I hope we can more of that good stuff somehow, someday.

P.S. The realistic gameplay of the mod was really appealing too. The way aircraft flew and crashed, helicopters pulling up to slow down and stop, tanks making some convincing sounds as they move the turret, the damage that everything does. So very realistic with amazing attention to detail.

This mod is how Generals should have been. The quality of the work done in CWC is remarkable. I followed this mod ever since I first saw it in 2005, the first things that caught my eye was BMPs floating on water, just like in real life. The only game I had seen that in was Operation Flashpoint. So began a long wait, I visited the CWC website every week looking for updates, and every time there was an update it gave me a smile. I eventually registered at the CWC forums and posted a few posts. My…
