This mod improves the Zero Hour game by fixing almost all bugs in the game, with tons of balances, improved AI, and many enhanced features. There are also additional stuffs for all factions and sub-factions including Civilians. This mod also including playable Boss General with fully functional AI.

The NProject Mod main features:

  • Almost perfect Zero Hour. It is what Zero Hour should have been in the first time, keeping the game's original look while greatly improving its content. Tons of bugs and exploits were fixed, the balance has been improved and retoned and the AI has been improved sightly. NProject Mod is the best patch mod you can get for Zero Hour.
  • Enabled Boss General to be played in skirmish and multiplayer with balance and playability added so it is not overpowered.
  • More than 35 new units, structures, upgrades, and special abilities. These new things were added to give each specific General more choices in tactics and preserve the balance among all factions.
  • More than 15 new maps for skirmish and multiplayer with improved AI. All existing maps also have been improved with better pathfinding, enhanced AI, and less lag. The Generals Challenge missions also have been enhanced, including the new Demolition General mission.
  • Small changes that makes big things. Several minor fixes and improvement have been applied as well. From the things like destructible props and trees, several improved explosion particles, to necessary model improvements.
  • Additional features for Zero Hour:
    - Expanded option menu, enabled the anti-aliasing, language filter, and draw cursor settings.
    - Integrated WorldBuilder Mesh Mold Tool, with several template shapes help the mappers.
    - Added the missing Generals Challenge missions, the Infantry General (soon) and Demolition General.
    - Complete Generals-Zero Hour campaigns, added with some extra missions. (soon)

Our future planned release packages:

  • The original NProject Mod final version (dubbed "NPM 2.Final")
    Will be pretty much the same as the current release but with more features enabled than was originally intended. It will have the complete campaign missions from both vanilla Generals and Zero Hour, including several new additional missions. It also gets additional maps with new tech structures that we have yet to add (such as Tech Radio Station and Tech Factory). Of course there also will be plenty of new props for WorldBuilder to be used in maps.
  • The Classic Mode
    Will come with the final version above. In this mode, the additional stuff will be removed. Boss General will be not playable in this mode. The rosters will be reverted back to the original Zero Hour, yet all the fixes and balances of NProject Mod still exist. However, some new additions will still be kept if deemed required for the balance. This mode will be the new perfect build core of Zero Hour.
  • The N-Project aka the "NProject Mod 3.0".
    Leaving the current format "stay close to the original", this one will include 12 brand new generals with sightly unique game mechanics, some are the returning ZH generals with completely revamped armies. No vanilla factions selectable.

Apologies for being an idiot, but does anyone happen to have a mirror link for the 2.8 and the fixed 2.8.1?
Somehow i can download everything in ModDB but these :(

This only occurred when I used the install version...folks told me to use the no-install and it worked! So the install version really needs fixing...As a note when I used your mod, I can tell that it's really not done...How far are you from finishing this? (Waitin on classic :) )

first, yeah, we're sorry that the wiki server is currently down. we're still trying to migrate to our new website that's still under construction.

for your original problem, it seems you're installing the mod in the wrong directory, so the mod cannot run properly.

and about the development of this mod, we're currently suspending this mod because we're focusing on our other mod Tidal Wars now. we'll continue after it got at least a public release, so we can't estimate when it will be done.

I'm having a problem. I'm playing as General Fai, and I'm crashing invariably in the mission against General Granger. I ran through the Challenge with General Granger and nothing happened. Any ideas?

explain "crashing invariably".
- when the crash usually happen
- what the last thing you did when the crash happened
- check the ReleaseCrashInfo.txt for crash report

"Crashing invariably" means no matter what I do.

- The crash happens when I cross the bridge and am near the oil derricks next to General Granger's base.
- The last thing I did was moving more troops in (Battlemasters, Gattling tanks, Emperor Overlords, and Troop Crawlers).
- I owe you the ReleaseCrashInfo.txt, I will post it when I can!

- Sorry, I mean only troop crawlers and men (was also playing with Kwai).

n5p29 Jul 12 2014, 4:44am replied:

did you mean playing both mods at the same time, or just install them in the same folder?

if it's the former then nope. you can never play two mods in the same time (e.g. expecting to play ShW Salvage General against RotR ECA). but you still can install both mods in same installation folder and choose which mod you want to play atm.

Ahh, okay. No problem, just asking!

My intention was to "merge" the mods somehow - your Generals' Challenge with the campaign and whatnot. But it's all good! :D
