How do I change the charge times for the superweapons (Particle Cannon to be exact) for ZH? I can't find it in the INIZH file. And is there a way to gain General Ranks and Skill Points faster by modding the INI file?
du The super weaps time amounts are in the specialpower.INI and the rank stuff in is in the rank.INI comonsence
And where would those 2 INI files be? I did a file search and didn't find it. I hope you know I'm talking about Zero:Hour here..
i tryd to do that a while back too i couldent find out how eathier
BAH. I doubt rank.ini and specialpowers.ini doesn't even exist. I've done a file search on my entire computer for any file with INI in it and it didn't find any rank.ini or specialpowers.ini.

You will never find any .ini files on your computer. Because there aren't there.
You need a program like BigPop to open .big files. Now when you get it and install it gotto your generals dir and find for ZH iniZH.big for generals INI.big and open it.
Extract all the files into INI dir (D:\Program\EA Games\Command and Conquer Generals\Data\INI\) and put them into the right directories.
Then you will find them! ;)
I'm already using UltraEdit-32 to open .big files. I know where INIZH is and I can't find where the chargetimes are in the INIZH. I think I might of found it but I'm not sure...I did a word search for "chargetime" and it came up with a few. This is part of the one I found for the Particle Cannon. BeginChargeTime = 5000 ;The outer nodes begin to charge. RaiseAntennaTime = 4667 ;The hatch opens and raises antenna (matches animation speed) ReadyDelayTime = 2000 ;The time after antenna is raised prior to being ready to fire. I'm guessing that's where I edit when animations are done at a certain countdown time (like when time is almost up the cannon starts to open up), but that doesn't really let me change the time from 6 minutes to whatever time I want, of course..once I change the 6 minute countdown default time..I'll have to change the animation times also...okay..I've been talking too long... Still haven't found the countdown time...I need an expert...
hmpf... The Rank.ini won't be found in INIZH.big, it's within the Old INI.big from regular Generals, and the Special Power INI is in INIZH.big from ZH ;) And plz don't tell me it's not there, because i modified both yesterday for my Tornado Strike :)
then what do i edit in the file to change the timer from 6 minutes to what i want? it just seems to say the same crap to me over and over again
;------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SpecialPower SuperweaponParticleUplinkCannon Enum = SPECIAL_PARTICLE_UPLINK_CANNON [COLOR=Red]ReloadTime = 240000[/COLOR] ; in milliseconds PublicTimer = Yes ViewObjectDuration = 30000 ViewObjectRange = 250 ShortcutPower = Yes ;Capable of being fired by the side-bar shortcut. AcademyClassify = ACT_SUPERPOWER ;Considered a powerful special power that a player could fire. Not for simpler unit based powers. End
There is what you need to change ;) Found in Specialpower.ini
