Alrighty, I've edited the .ini files in the past with other Command and Conquer games but I can't seem to do it with this one. I make some changes but nothing happens in the INI.big file. Do I need some sort of program to make the separate .ini files from INI.big or what? All I want to do is edit the amount of starting money and to make super powers impossible to build (Which I will be able to do once I figure how to many _ANYTHING_ work). Thanks.

Get a .big file extractor and then extract the ini.big. Then you will be able to open the ini's just like regular and edit them. Make sure once you have edited them that you put them in the right place. An example is the weapons.ini, you need to put it in the C:\Program Files\EA Games\Command and Conquer Generals\Data\INI folder to get the changes to take place. For units you would edit the factionunit.ini and then place it in the \data\ini\object folder to get the changes to take place. Hope all this helped.
