No, but it's easy, all you have to do it find the PlayerTemplate.ini then copy the entry of either China, GLA, or USA then paster that at the bottom of the file, then name it what you want and name the side, then go to CommandBarSetup, and copy one of the entries from either the USA, China, or GLA, then all you have to do it create new buildings and units for the side, and if you want the computer to use them you have to script the AI for them, but I can't tell you how to do that, cause I don't know.

Assuming that you are wishing to do this for ZH, then you also need an entry in challengemode.ini, thats where all the tooltips and csf entries link to for your general.

I have not yet seen a successfully scripted AI for a mod. My advice would be to replace one of the existing generals for your general, keep the original generals unit names and let the game engine think it is building them, but instead it would create your units.

Get what I mean?

Well if you don't want it to then fine, just do what everyone else does. Create a new general, with new names and they'll just sit there, useless.

Yes, of course. It is playable, but not playable against.

okay and how do you add different units to play against? do you have to use a special .ini file?

Absolutely Vanguard, you're absolutely right.

However, given that scripting seems to be so elusive, I know of no other way.
