Cannot Play as China factions

problem any help apreciated

Best Answer ImperialRazgriz, 10 June 2015 - 06:01 PM

Right well I apparently had GLA Assault in one of the AI slots and THAT is what screwed it up. So thanks Zeta1127, for pointing out that that could have been the problem.

 

Also predator_bg, thanks for the troubleshooting attempt, I have been having a blast with Contra...The only time I did not have fun so far with the mod was the Nuke General Challenge...Laser General charged me with tanks way too early...Plus he already had all upgrades apparently, so my force was easily wiped out.

Yeah, so all the other factions will load and let me play...But the Chinese ones will not.

 

I am using the Ultimate Edition version of Zero Hour off of Origin.

 

Can someone tell me how to fix the problem?

To clarify, I can start the match, but before the map loads it crashes.

 

It says something about it being a critical error.

Which version of Contra did you download? Are you trying to play Skirmish? What about Challenge?

008 Final. Skirmish, it's an official Zero Hour Map, Golden Oasis.

 

Challenge I did not try yet because I assume it's going to have the same thing happen.

Also I tried challenge earlier, and was able to play as those factions.

I have not heard about such problem as not being able to play with China before. Did you install Contra manually or used the Contra launcher to launch the game? If manually, make sure you have renamed Scripts folder.

Manually, and I already renamed all the scripts that are ctr to big.

I was talking about that folder: Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour\Data\Scripts.

Now try this. Launch Contra again, choose any Chinese faction and start the game. When the game crashes, go to C:\Users\*Username*\Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data and find ReleaseCrashInfo.txt. Open it and copy/paste the content here so I can look at it.

I have only ever had problems with the new generals, the GLA factions, and the China Nuke General, but only when they are AI. On a manual install, since the launcher flatly refuses to work, because it isn't a valid Win32 application.
