This mod adds 102 new units, 50 new upgrades, 45 new general's powers, 30 new buildings and 3 new generals as well as new music and new quality graphics and sound for normal Zero Hour units. Contra is a 'standalone' mod - it won't work in conjunction with any other mods and AI patches you may have installed, so remove them before you install it. Contra requires Generals Zero Hour version 1.04. 2) ----- ===== Installation ===== ----- 2.1. Installation for PC users Unpack the archive to any folder on your computer. Run "ContraLauncher" file. Select language and music you wish and click "Launch" button. Launcher will automaticly locate the game, copy all necessary files and launch Zero Hour. When you exit the game launcher automaticly deletes all Contra files from Zero Hour folder. Launcher has the option - "Leave the mod attached to Zero hour on exit". It tells it don't to delete Contra files from Zero Hour folder. If files are not deleted then the mod stays attached to the game and you can start it without launcher - just start the game. Contra will start automaticly. If you want to deattach Contra from Zero Hour then start the Contra launcher and click "Exit" button. WARNING: It is strongly recommended do not to move, copy, delete or change content of Contra and Zero Hour files manualy. It will definitely cause serious troubles such as crashes, network mismatch errors and other problems. 2.2. Installation for Mac users Since Launcher is not compatible with MacOs, you have to copy Contra files manualy. To do so copy folowing files and folders from Contra mod into your Generals Zero Hour folder: Data (whole folder) !Contra006.big !Contra006-eng.big !Contra006Music.big game.dat 00000000.016 00000000.256 Ariag.ttf Install_Final.bmp Some of these files are already exist in your Generals Zero Hour. It is recomended to backup original files before overwriting them. 2.3. Installing music packs. Contra music packs are packages which contain alternative music for Contra. Music packs will not work in conjection with with any other mod as well as with original game. They work with contra only. Also you can not have more than one music pack attached to the game at a time. Music packs are available for download on official Contra web site: http://contra.cncguild.net/ Once you download it place it into Contra folder and run Contra Launcher. It will automaticly detect available music and suggest you to choose one of the packs. If you are Mac user then you can not run Contra Launcher. In such a case you will have to copy music pack manualy to Generals Zero Hour folder. Remember that it must not be several music pack installed at a time. So, make sure that none of other musoc packs is installed. Remember that the file !Contra006Music.big is music pack too. 3) ----- ===== Uninstallation ===== ----- 3.1. Uninstallation for PC users First of all check if Contra mod was attached to Zero Hour. To do so, start the game. If Contra starts automaticly then the mod was attached to Zero Hour. In such a case you have to deattach it. To do so, run "ContraLauncher" and click Exit button. This action deletes all Contra related files from Zero Hour. Now you can delete the folder where Contra is installed manually. Nothing more is needed. Contra does not write anything into system registry. Contra does not create additional files on your hard disk. Everything is very simple. 3.2. Uninstallation for Mac users First of all you have to remember if you had made backup for original files. If you did it then do the following: Delete these files: !Contra006.big !Contra006-eng.big !Contra006Music.big Ariag.ttf Then replace the rest of Contra files with original ones. If you did not do it then delete whole game from your hard drive. Make sure that Zero Hour folder does not exist any more. If it exists then delete it manually. Then install the game from your CD or DVD. 4) ----- ===== Troubleshooting ===== ----- If you have any problems then visit this forum topic. http://forums.revora.net/index.php?s=3593f3da92e3a0695bcd3d05a84c63dc&showtopic=30950 5) ----- ===== History of changes ===== ----- Version 0.01 Alpha.
