Contra 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.
Contra 008 Beta II. Happy New Year to all of you!!! We are happy to inform you that Contra 008 Beta II release is ready!
Put all files inside a clean Zero Hour directory (with no mods installed) and rename Scripts folder to Scripts1 (which is located inside Data folder).
Only one of these files must be inside your Zero Hour directory:
"!Contra008Beta2RU.big" - for Russian language.
"!Contra008Beta2EN.big" - for English language.
Zero Hour version 1.04 is required!
If you see strings like "MISSING:bla-bla-bla" instead of names and descriptions and/or purple rectangles instead of buttons and unit icons, here's the fix:
Extract !Contra008Beta2.big and !Contra008Beta2EN.big with FinalBig in a new folder named with the language of your game (German, French, etc.).
This new folder must be in the same folder where you installed Contra.
Link to FinalBig: Contra.cncguild.net
Press "Edit" and "Extract All", then choose the folder.
If you want to play other mods at the same time, make a copy of a clean Zero Hour and install 008 Beta in it. 008 Beta will be launched from the new folder. Other mods will be launched from the other folder.
