Did you get custom voicework for the boss general? It sounds really good.

No. We used already existing voices for USA Boss. They were left out by the game creators. Filenames are "tusab001", "tusab002", etc. You can tell that "usab" suggests "USA Boss". Probably, they had no time to make three bosses, so they made just China Boss.

Can we play the boss generals also. I mean, maybe unluckeble.

Yes. There is a video on YouTube on how to do that. It won't work against other players online unless they have the same changes. Keep in mind, this is unofficial. Bosses do not have a working AI. They were never meant to be played in Skirmish.

Ironside mentions "One War Factory? You're gonna need at least half a dozen to stop me, kid"

Honestly, I hope it does.. especially on harder difficulties .. that'd really make it a challenge and players would actually fear him and it /is/ a Generals /Challenge/. Lean was always simple to defeat to me at least. I do hope these new boss generals will be far from easy.

Also, what constitutes meeting face to face with either USA, China or GLA Boss Generals? Are they faction specific? I'd actually like to be able to face him with any General .. same with the other boss generals, Assuming they're going to be in the game.. also, will the GLA General get those monolithic sentinel cannons? Those things are pretty baller looking.

Patiently awaiting an answer to my questions. I figured it'd be alright if I gave a single heads up about it .. seeing as this is in fact an older post.

Sorry, didn't check for new comments here.

I promise that Boss generals will offer a bigger challenge. Maps are large and the Bosses are slower to defeat. Which means more chances of you getting overrun. There will also be some "quests" for each Boss, additional things you have to take care of. :)

No matter which general you play with, you will face all three Bosses in the end. We'll think about new toys for the Boss generals.

Thank you for responding!

I really do hope I need half a dozen War Factories to stop him. Haha

I do like the Idea of Deathstrike(If it's him for GLA Boss) receiving the Sentinel Cannons .. I remember activating the "Boss Generals" for Skirmish through the .big and playing around with a couple of the new toys and the huge Sentinel cannons seemed really really awesome and I think they'd be at home on cliffs or mountainous areas protecting his base, An Idea Y'know?

Wonderful such a wonderful and interesting and superb mod for the most awesome and interesting strategy experience. Like chess but in awesome and thrilling.
There is only one thing that negatively catches my attention - the very sparse to non existent vegetation in all of the maps.
Every 50 yards/meters a single tree is placed and everything else is completely empty.
Please make dense woods, more trees, realistic woods, more vegetation for the super immersive "building a hidden base and hidden structures in dense woodland" feeling :)
Even the most cheap budget computers and non-gaming-workstation-notebooks are so strong nowadays they can handle this low poly Generals - Zero Hour graphics engine a thousand times in thousand parallel running tabs.......there don`t need to be (except the enemy structures) otherwise almost empty maps with no vegetation just to keep the framerate stable ;)

Usually it's not a good idea to put many objects on big maps as Generals has an object limit, and when it's reached, all ground units on the map get stuck. But I'll see how many more trees I can add to this map. It is a good suggestion.
