New version of full-installer was released!

We are glad to present you a new full installer for the new version 0.27!

Due to the fact that many people encounter problems installing the mod, so we decided to create a full-fledged installer for the game (pre-installed Generals ZH is not needed for complete installation). There is support for choosing the language of the installer (Caution! The installer does not change the language of the game itself!).

The parts of the game that will be added later can be obtained through our launcher. The release of the updates will be posted here in the information window launcher in our Discord & VK group.

After installing the game, be sure to launch the launcher (by default, the shortcuts that will created in the installer lead to it), it will install the game language at the first start (depending on the system language, also you can change it to another by switching the toggle switch on the main page of launcher).

In case of any problems during installation or in the mod itself, you can always ask for prompt help in our

This is a Generals Zero Hour standard error, the devs at EA did not output normal logs to flesh out the problem (some information is in ReleseCrashInfo.txt from "/User/MyDocuments/Generals ZeroHour/", but it's not always useful).

You can write to our Discord (, where we will try to determine its cause and help you with the problem.

It conflicts with other mods or registry problems. I had the same problem. I fixed it by downloading new "pirate" copy of generals and copying INI files and Data folder to generals. If copy of original generals doesn't work, the mod won't work too.

Maybe if you have a problem like "Error parsing ini file..." the problem is in original Generals(i mean not ZH).
Some files like Gen_cine.ini are absent at some versions of the game "generals ZH". Sorry for my possible poor english, i am from Ukraine(btw).
If you have a problem like this, download some "pirate" editions of the game, like this:
It's russian site... i couldn't find any normal version like this at the short time. Maybe i will find something better... maybe. Sorry again!

Пиши по русски, если по английски сложно)

Ошибка может быть вызвана чем угодно, это же ZH. Детальнее нужно смотреть, для этого и направляем всех в Discord

For people having errors with the mod, just read the description for once. The mod doesn't require a fresh install of zero hour. The mod's installer installs both the game and the mod combined. Just download the installer and chooose a new empty folder then let the installer finish its job. Open the launcher, change the language, and have fun.

Hmm... Bro, maybe having error is a problem of device, OS, or original generals, which may conflict with the game. I have both (mod and original ZH) working good, but i had much problem before i could play any of them.

Did you install the mod on a fresh empty folder (literally empty, a folder that doesn't have a game inside it)? I don't understand your comment, do you have a problem now or did you find a solution for this problem?

I found a solution. The game couldn't launch on windows 7 first. I installed other copy of generals, and taked INI.big to generals zh.(both of them, world war 2 and generals zh didn't launched before i installed new copy)I had the problem with my OS, i think. After that, i got the problem(code: error parsing ini file gencine.ini). I fixed it by reassembling INIZH.big both of my working generals.(Lol, i had a problem with any of that copies, ZH from internet had bad textures). NVM bro, it's just my rave. Don't take this comment into account, trying to understand it. It's impossible, bcos i'm too bad writer) NVM... sorry that i taked your time.

Glad you could fix it. No problem! You didn't waste my time though. If generals isn't woking in vanilla form, it would never work with any mod. I see that you fixed the vanilla generals first, then the mod worked for you. Nice job.
