The Usa Laser does not have any weakness he's strong in everything i don't understand why you removed all his weakness

All generals are balanced with $10000 starting cash in mind, and for PvP games. You can prove your point to some of our best players. :)

Funnily enough, I've heard people affirm the exact opposite.

Download this: Moddb.com
The hotfixes will be automatically downloaded by the launcher (unless you decline them when asked).

To install (using the link above):
1. Open "Contra009Setup.exe".
2. Choose installer language.
3. Choose installation directory (unmodded working Zero Hour patched to v.1.04) and install.

thank you
just downloaded it and installed it to D:\Games\Command And Conqure The Ultimate Collection\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour
this is where installed all the games from the ultimate collection to, i couldnt use default c: drive as my compute has split the storage so only small space on c: drive :(.

anyway i get this message
the code execution cannot proceed because binkw32.dll was not found, reinstalling the programme may fix this
and this code
the code execution cannot proceed because mss32.dll was not found, reinstalling the programme may fix this.

how do i patch it to v.1.04? i never had to do this on my old copy (the first decade, but disk is screwed on that lol). (EDIT, i have just looked in options after a google search and it says zero hour is on version 1.04)

also i am glad to see people are still interested in c&c and moding it, makes it worth me still wanting to play it :)

just seen a youtube video of someone renaming files from CTR file to BIG files, i remember years ago i had to do this, would this be the issue?, i dont know what files to change to BIG if that is teh issue as the names of the files are different to that on the youtube video (was for contra 009 Beta)

EDIT:
I HAVE DONE IT, installed to the wrong folder, i had 2 folders names command and conquer the first decade, i put it in the 1st folder, it needed to be in 2nd
D:\Games\Command And Conqure The Ultimate Collection\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour
this files had data, core and mss folders (for those who also have trouble)

I have a problem with installing patch 3, I know it should install automatically when I install contra, but it asks to install the patch and I click yes it gives me "End of central directory record could not be found error". It's worth mentioning that I just had contra installed a couple of days ago on the same computer and it installed all the patches automatically no problem

Join our Discord and mention me (PredatoR#5269) in the support channel: Discord.gg
I will try to assist there. It would be easier to chat and share screenshots.

Why can't we install patch 3 and the hotfix manually like the other patches if we DON'T want to use the launcher. It's dumb. Sticking to patches 1 and 2 if there's no work around. Not an online player anyway. Next y'all be using that crap gentool

I can't get past the USA boss general on Medium because even with 4 war factories pumping units nonstop there's too much of a rush too soon. I've tried every general and only some USA can win that guy.

I got 009, installed all three patches with the hot fixes but the enemies are too passive and easy to defeat. Any help.
