Let me guess, you are playing as China and the building that is blowing up is your power plant(s). TURN OFF OVERCHARGE!! Or whatever the name of that "ability" the power plant has. It damages the power plant slightly every second. If this is not the case, something is very, very wrong...

I have the same problem. After I start a lan game all of the sudden all my buildings explode and shows the you have been defeated screen. This happends after 15 seconds into the game. Any help would be appreciated.

I had the same problem! Let me guess: you have either cracked the game and putted a file called ***"something".dat in your game directory, or u have changed the cd key after you installed the game?

Then everything explodes,

Try to install the game again

I had installed the game with the original cd key. But since I have 2 Generals games I decided to use the other key. So I changed it and I guess thats what caused the error.

Anyways i did what u said and it work. Thanks a lot.

Yeah its some sort of protection. when you crack the game or use a different cd-key all the buildings explode. thats actually really smart.
