i had problems with my old (5 years) hard drive, so I got a brand new one from Western Digital. since it's bigger than 32GB, Windows XP Pro setup only allowed me to format it as NTFS. I=i did a fresh install of Generals and applied the 1.05 patch. N=now, every time I start up the game, it tells me that i have to restart the computer to finish the patch. what's going on with the game?

try reinstalling the game with your antivirus offline

and download the patch from the official generals site and not from the game istself.

that should make it work

lolz unless you have the illegal generals:D

thanks for the help, but it turns out that using the cd to update the game fixed it. and why would i have an illegal copy of generals? the game is worth the $50 i spent on it. :smack: :rock:
