File Description

The main idea of this mod is to make sides more different. 60 new units, 20 new skills, and 30 new upgrades make gameplay very original and various. -Air Force General. Build defense and make air assault. Planes are cheaper and more powerful. F-117 is good dozer hunter. F-23 is anti-aircraft plane. F-22A "King Raptor" is more effective vs vehicles and less effective vs buildins. To take off structures use Aurora Alpha. Also you can build "Hercules" transports and make infantry paradrop at any time you want. -Laser General. Powerful ground assault faction. There are 3 types of lasers: anti-tank, anti-infantry, and anti-structure. The most of units have one type of these lasers. -Super Weapon General. Build powerful defense line and fire super weapons from behind of it. The most of upgrades are for defense and for buildings. Also there is second super weapon (ICBM launcher). Use particle cannons to take off strong buildings and use ICBM launchers to take off large groups of enemies. -Cybernetic General. The fastest faction in the game. The main power is drones. They are fast and immune to toxins, radiation neutron weapons and Jarmen Kell. The super weapon is tomahawk storm. It have very short reload time (3 min). Speed is power. -Tank General. Everything is for tank assault. Troop Crawlers are not Troop Crawlers ant more. They are support units. You can build one of 5 addons on each of and provide support to attacking Battle Masters. If it does not help then make heavy tank assault with Emperors, Manticores, Earth Shakers and Banshees. All of them are Overlord based super heavy tanks. Under good command they are unstoppable. -Infantry General. The main power is quantity. Build heaps of infantry and research a dozen of upgrades for them. Then begin heavy infantry assault. Explore with fast wheeled tanks and defend placing mines and traps. -Nuke General. Main power is nuclear weapons. The most of units have high firepower and low defense. Also there is no bunkers infantry can hide in. Do not care of defense. The best defense is attack. -Flame General. The main power is flame. Flame is very effective vs buildings. Playing for this general try to avoid enemy tanks and concentrate all firepower on structures. Destroy all enemy buildings and win. -Chemical General. The main power is chemistry. Poisons kill infantry and light vehicles with time. New acid weapons bring damage to tanks and buildigs with time. Silicon clouds bring damage to flying aircrafts with time. Pollute ground and air and see you enemies dying. -Demolition General. The main power is suicide units. Their cost is low and amount of money returned with cash bounty is high. This is the only general that can live without collecting resources. Arsenal of suicide units is large: terrorists, flying terrorists, bomb trucks, nuclear bomb trucks and etc. -Stealth General. Starts with GPS scrambler. The most of units are stealth. So he can be always invisible. The most suitable tactic is hit-&-run. -Assault General. Yet another ground assault faction with tanks, artillery, and fire support aviation.

1) Description

 Contra is a 'standalone' mod - it wont work in conjunction with any other mods 
 and AI patches you may have installed, so remove them before you install it.
 This mod will work with all versions of Generals Zero Hour begining from 1.00

2) Installation

 As a safety measure, you should make a backup of the 'Scripts' folder which can 
 be found in the "Generals Zero Hour\Data" directory. You should restore this 
 backup when you uninstall Contra. This isn't absolutely necessary but it will 
 help to prevent any errors when playing online after you remove the mod.

 Unpack the archive.
 Place Contra.big into "My Documents/Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data/".
 Place into "Generals Zero Hour/Data/Scripts/".

 Then edit Zero Hour shortcut by adding "-mod contra.big" to the end of link.
 For example, I have this link for my computer:

  "C:\Games\Generals Zero Hour\generals.exe" -mod contra.big

 The mod is initially in Russian. If you need English version then place 
 generals.csf file into "Generals Zero Hour/Data/English/". If such folder
 does not exist then you must create it.
