1) Description

Contra is a 'standalone' mod - it wont work in conjunction with any other mods
and AI patches you may have installed, so remove them before you install it.
This mod will work with all versions of Generals Zero Hour begining from 1.00

The main idea of this mod is to make sides more different. Sixty new units,
twenty new skills, and thirty new upgrades make gameplay very original and

-Air Force General. Build defense and make air assault. Planes are cheaper and
more powerful. F-117 is good dozer hunter. F-23 is anti-aircraft plane. F-22A
"King Raptor" is more effective vs vehicles and less effective vs buildins. To
take off structures use Aurora Alpha. Also you can build "Hercules" transports
and make infantry paradrop at any time you want.

-Laser General. Generic ground assault faction. No especial features. The main
battle unit is Paladin. Laser Crusader is fire support unit with high firepower
low armor. Microwave tank is anti-infantry unit.

-Super Weapon General. Build powerful defense line and fire super weapons from
behind of it. The most of upgrades are for defense and for buildings. Also
there is second super weapon (ICBM launcher). Use particle cannons to take off
strong buildings and use ICBM launchers to take off large groups of enemies.

-Cybernetic General. The fastest faction in the game. The main power is drones.
They are fast and immune to toxins, radiation neutron weapons and Jarmen Kell.
The super weapon is tomahawk storm. It have very short reload time (3 min).
Speed is power.

-Tank General. Everything is for tank assault. Troop Crawlers are not Troop
Crawlers ant more. They are support units. You can build one of 5 addons on
each of and provide support to attacking Battle Masters. If it does not help
then make heavy tank assault with Emperors, Manticores, Earth Shakers and
Banshees. All of them are Overlord based super heavy tanks. Under good command
they are unstoppable.

-Infantry General. The main power is quantity. Build heaps of infantry and
research a dozen of upgrades for them. Then begin heavy infantry assault.
Explore with fast wheeled tanks before attack. If enemy is too powerful
then make diversions with hackers sitting inside stealth ghost-tank and
Black Lotus.

-Nuke General. The main power is nuclear weapons. The most of units have high
firepower and low defense. Also there is no bunkers infantry can hide in. Do
not care of defense. The best defense is attack.

-Flame General. The main power is flame. Flame is very effective vs buildings.
Playing for this general try to avoid enemy tanks and concentrate all firepower
on structures. Destroy all enemy buildings and win.

-Chemical General. The main power is chemistry. Poisons kill infantry and light
vehicles with time. New acid weapons bring damage to tanks and buildigs with
time. Silicon clouds bring damage to flying aircrafts with time. Just pollute
ground and air and see you enemies dying.

-Demolition General. The main power is suicide units. Their cost is low and
amount of money returned with cash bounty is high. This is the only general
that can live without collecting resources. Arsenal of suicide units is large:
terrorists, flying terrorists, bomb trucks, nuclear bomb trucks and etc.

-Stealth General. Starts with GPS scrambler. The most of units are stealth. So
he can be always invisible. The most suitable tactic is hit-&-run.

-Assault General. Another generic ground assault faction with tanks, artillery,
and fire support aviation.

2) Installation

As a safety measure, you should make a backup of the 'Scripts' folder which can
be found in the "Generals Zero Hour\Data" directory. You should restore this
backup when you uninstall Contra. This isn't absolutely necessary but it will
help to prevent any errors when playing online after you remove the mod.

Now unpack the archive. To do it run the file downloaded. Then click "Browse"
and select the folder where your Generals Zero Hour is located. Then click
