The Mod works fine but when we "create game" and start the match, the game shuts down and the "technical error" message occurs. What should i do?

Hi, I had this "technical difficulties, maybe caused by virus or overheated hardware blah blah blah" stuff sometimes, and could not start a single mod a few days ago.
After a clean Windows 7 install, Radeon driver AMD-Catalyst-Omega-14.12-With-DOTNet45-Win7-64bit and directx_Jun2010_redist, I am able to start at least some of the Zero Hour mods now.
Even Zero Hour Enhanced Mod works now :) give it a try maybe it works.
And yes mods are always installed in C:\Games\Zero Hour

It was not tested on Windows 10 but I think that if Zero Hour works, then Contra should too.

Hah...there is still a bug with Internet centres, hackers stop stealing money when satellite upgrades are started.
And also...Overlord Headquarters... cool thing but upgrades are unavaliable stright after being built at rank 3...not canonical really.

Those upgrades are granted at rank 5. It is much better since building nuke silo, and purchase upgrades from there was way too long. In online games very few matches goes to this point where you actually build nuke silo.
As for internet centers, we will check it.

One more thing Ive noticed. Pave Low has enough fire range to attack defence structures and stay invulnerable. And that's good and I guess that's right thing, cause this helicopter is an artillery. But it makes such unit as "Eye" almost useless. In previous versions F-16 XL had fire range bugs (sometimes they launched their missiles from large distance withiut SLID field). But discription says that F-16 is also an artillery unit - so why not to remove this "Eye" completely? Seems like this unit is
excess.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

The eye is very useful. And F16 is an artillery unit if they are in circe of an eye, and when they become red they fire from long distance and their rocket damage increased by 30%. The eye help your F16's to clear GLA tunnels if you are surrounded and, so the Eye is not usless.

Had fun sometimes game crashes with error. AI was improved it is cool but guess what? 1 AI flame general just beat down 2 SW General. im surprised. 1v1v1v1 map

SW general need time to develop. That's some kind of bug. In early game SW does nothing, just build barracks and few infanry and thats it. You should include Cybernetic and Airfoce as your enemy. Of course I'm talking of playing it on Hard difficulty.

2. Rename !Contra009Beta.ctr to !Contra009Beta.big.
3. Rename !Contra009BetaEN.ctr to !Contra009BetaEN.big OR rename !Contra009BetaRU.ctr to !Contra009BetaRU.big if you want Russian language.
4. Rename !Contra009BetaVOrig.ctr to !Contra009BetaVOrig.big OR rename !Contra009BetaVLoc.ctr to !Contra009BetaVLoc.big if you want English unit voices.

Make sure you've read the instructions first. Here's a copy/paste.

And for those playing Zero Hour on Origin (C&C: The Ultimate Collection):

You should delete all previous contra files in this case 008 and then extract 009 in clean Zero Hour folder.
