Report article RSS Feed How to install Contra 007 manually

If Сontra launcher does not work, you have to copy Contra files manually. To do so, copy following files and folders from Contra mod into your Generals Zero Hour folder: !Contra007.big !Contra007-eng.big !Contra006Music.big 00000000.016 00000000.256 Ariag.ttf Install_Final.bmp And delete Scripts folder from Data folder (ZH\Data\Scripts). Some of these files are already existing in your Generals Zero Hour. It is recomended to backup original files before overwriting them.

!Contra006Music.big

Ariag.ttf
Install_Final.bmp

And delete Scripts folder from Data folder (ZH\Data\Scripts) - if you don't Delete Scripts Folder, AI will not work!

Some of these files are already existing in your Generals Zero Hour. It is recomended to backup original files before overwriting them.

i managed to install this normally with the install wizard on my laptop, with windows 7 64bit. however my desktop with vista 32bit needs to be manually installed, and these instructions didnt seem to help. however i noticed on my laptop that the scripts folder is still there, does that folder really need to be deleted?

This is a problem that I had with the mod a while back, and I have refused to download it again. If you didn't backup your files, then the only way to go back is to restore your computer to factory settings, or how it came. The two files that are messed up are 00000000.016 and 00000000.256. If you backed up your files, you should be able to just copy these two files back into your Zero Hour file, and select copy and replace. If that doesn't work, then there is no other way except to completely restore your computer. That was the only thing that worked for me, as I didn't backup my files the first time.

I have the Ultimate Collection and have spent several hours trying to get it to work. The instructions do not work. At all. Keeps loading up the original Zero Hour.
