CWC is a C&C Generals Zero Hour Total Conversion and also works with "The First Decade". It takes place from 1980-1989 and 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 we have a lot of infantry in the game, not all of them are just cannon fodder.

Today is the big day! CWC is released after over 4 years of hard work, blood and sweat! Thanks to everyone who contributed to this community, for all the constructive criticism and the ideas. Without too much words, let's get to business, shall we?

Please make sure to download our manual.
We got a nice install-guide in there and before you mess-up your Zero Hour installation or are wondering about strange errors, why not take a look into it before doing stuff? Also there are good hints and tips for playing CWC in it, so it's worth a look. If you can't fix a problem even after reading our manual at least twice go to our Forum for help. But as mentioned, please try reading the manual first!

Download CWC! Pretty easy, just get it here from ModDB or visit our page for additional mirrors.

Enjoy CWC. In case you want to battle other players online make sure to read our Hamachi-guide on how to set it up.

We hope you'll enjoy the final release of CWC - v1.0 ;)

What are your specs ? I think you'd need an upgrade, but I'll have to know your specs to judge.

Also, try this tweak:
