The AI works now after removing SkirmishScripts.scb, but you get mismatch online, right? It is possible that your human opponent did not install Contra correctly. Check if he has done the same thing with SkirmishScripts.scb (he must delete that file or rename the "Scripts" folder to something else). Mismatch (at game start) can be caused by the scripts file, so ask him to check his file too. If everything seems right, but mismatch still appears, I would have to recommend both of you deleting Contra and installing it once again by doing the steps below together (it's a manual installation method):
1. Put all files from Contra008FINAL into your Zero Hour folder.
2. Rename !Contra008.ctr to !Contra008.big.
3. Rename !Contra008EN.ctr to !Contra008EN.big (or rename !Contra008RU.ctr to !Contra008RU.big if you want Russian language).
4. Rename !Contra008VOrig.ctr to !Contra008VOrig.big (or rename !Contra008VLoc.ctr to !Contra008VLoc.big if you want English unit voices).
5. Rename !Contra008MNew.ctr to !Contra008MNew.big (or rename !Contra008MStandard.ctr to !Contra008MStandard.big if you want vanilla soundtracks).
6. Rename "Scripts" folder to "Scripts1" (which is located inside Data folder).
7. Start the game from generals.exe.
I recommend renaming the "Scripts" folder rather than deleting the .scb file. The result is the same, but you will be able to save the original scripts if you want to play Zero Hour again by simply renaming "Scripts1" to "Scripts".
