ontra is a freeware modification for Command and Conquer Generals: Zero Hour real-time strategy game. It's a big project started in 2004. It adds many new units as well as numerous new upgrades, new general's powers and buildings. It also adds new sounds, maps, bug fixes, enhanced graphics, and other effects, as well as three new generals.

Features:

  • Introduced Ranking system, in which that certain buildings and units can only be built when a certain general's rank is achieved. Players get awarded for their combat efficiency.
  • 3 New Generals - USA Cybernetic, China Flame and GLA Assault.
  • A.I. is greatly enhanced.
  • Introduction of "Super Units". The limit is 1 per player (like hero units). Super units require 5th rank. Each general has a unique super unit.
  • Neutral Tech Structures reappear after a while after they are destroyed.
  • Deep variety of gameplay tactics and strategies.
  • Wide choice of units, buildings, special powers and upgrades.
  • New graphics and sounds.
  • All 12 generals were made as diverse as possible. The gameplay for each general is unique. 
  • Simplified micro management (since Contra 008).
  • Each faction speaks its own language (since Contra 008).
  • Increased stability in multiplayer games (since Contra 008).

USA Generals:

Cybernetic - Algrin "A.I." Ironhand

The generic feature of this general is his mobility, which allows to move
an entire army very fast and create numerical superiority at desired
areas of the battlefield. His basic strategy is unstoppable maneuvering
along enemy base perimeter. If he finds a weak point in defense, he
moves there instantly and destroys the most significant targets.

Air Force - Malcolm "Ace" Granger

Air Force general depends on speed and precision. He requires skillful
control and is heavy on micro management. While being a powerful general
the skill and experience required makes him difficult for many
beginners to play.

Laser - "Pinpoint" Townes

Laser is a versatile general strong in call situations. He is flexible and has
units to fill every combat role. As a result he has no weaknesses other
than being a specialist at nothing.

Super Weapon - Alexis Alexander

Advantage of this general is easy micro and very simple strategy. Almost the same
vs all enemies - build up around enemy until he dies. However, you
should not ignore other abilities.

China Generals:

Flame - Huang Lin Bao

He has the same strategy as tank general, but another means for its
implementation and another battle tactics. His vehicles are not as
armoured as tank general's ones, so he has to use artillery and
different tactics, and tricks, instead of forcing his way through.

Nuke - Tsing Shi Tao

Nuke General must rely on aggression to defend his base. He has no defenses
to hide behind while you wait for your nukes to load. The absence of
defense structures forces the player to be more active and aggressive.
Use your units to carry out counterattacks for defense and support your
main attack with super weapons.

Infantry - "Anvil" Shin Fai

Infantry is a volatile general given to decisive victories or defeats in the
early game. As expected, he relies on masses of infantry in the early
game, later reinforced by more infantry. In the late game he gains
powerful artillery strikes supported by the same infantry.

Tank - Ta Hun Kwai

His strategy is easy to understand, but not as easy to implement:
build more tanks and attack. But everything has its details.

GLA Generals:

Toxin - Dr. Thrax

Toxin General specializes in area attacks and damage over time. He is
especially effective vs mobbed units and hordes. If well played, you
will find all of your positions unapproachable for the fields of acid
and poison.

Demolition - Rodall "Demo" Juhziz

He is a versatile and powerful general with demanding micro management needs.
Since almost all units are disposable, you must use them with care,
directing almost all kamikazes manually. The more assiduously you play -
the more complex it becomes for enemy to defend from your endless flows
of kamikazes. If you play properly, you can defeat any other general.

Stealth - Prince Kassad

While at a glance his units are weak and poorly suited of combat, Stealth
General is a deceptively powerful general using infiltration and
surprise to his advantage. He has long range sniper units capable of
attacking with impunity against units lacking stealth detection. He is a
challenging general to play, but has a strong reward for the effort
given.

Assault - Mahmud al Hukum

Assault is a flexible general with flexible units. He is low micro management and well suited
for most players. While having no spectacular abilities he also has no weaknesses.

No, this won't be an April Fools' Day joke. Contra suffered from many problems lately as many of you know...

First, our team leader and Contra founder Creator disappeared (probably because of social issues). He left us Contra and a right to continue his work. With our plans for final release and even 009 further release.

Then, the rest of our team just fell apart. And whole team was PredatorBG and me.
We got some help from great people like Zeke, Anubis... and some others as mentioned in release news before. (and I will repay them as I promised)

After that, I suffered from serious social issues, and got a new job which takes most of my time. PredatorBG was also very busy with his real life.

And if that was not terrible... we got more issues. Russian community, more specifically some members there like Javelin, 6aseke, Kur-Zaz... They took Contra for their self... and decided to make 009 version.

I was pissed off... they wanted to change everything for themselves. They decided to reject our plans, plans from Contra mod author Andrey Pestryakov... and make it for their own tournaments. And release it as 009. They even wanted to use models made by us... and everything.

Javelin told me that I can't prove that I have made all those models... After many argue, I succeeded to make some copyright on Contra name, and our development and our work.

So they made Contra 009 RLM (whatever that is). Some older members on Redsys are against that, and they are supporting real Contra.

I need to ask you too... to support real Contra and our work. If you see somewhere Contra 009 download, please know that it is fake... Only real update will be here.

Also, I will tell you now that we are returning to work. Old member LilTasman is back. He will work on fixing AI.

Now I will reveal some updates that we have made... no secret from us:

I have answered this question on the same page. The mod is not dead. We just don't really have much art to show as we were working mostly on code, testing, challenge and sounds. We make changes and communicate every day. The only occasion Contra dies without an announcement would be if all developers die. :)
