hello everyone


i was playing general zh online without any issue; however, recently when i create/ or join any online  group the following is happened:

- the game starts loading

- the match is started 

- few seconds later, vote screen is appeared (count down for all players)

- no one responding to my message while the vote screen is there.


this problem continue till I have reinstalled the gentool; and the previous issue was resolved; however, another issue was raised which is:

the match starts normally other players can be seen; also buildings can be built like normal, but after like 30 - 60 sec my buildings are destroyed and then this message is appeared " You have been defeated". Even the defeat, but  I could observe other players and i have tried to sent messages for them but no one could see them.



please please please help

Hey, its because you have a pirate key, you need to reinstall the game with a official key

There is an answer to that in the Gentool FAQ




Q. Why do my buildings explode 30 seconds after match start?
A. Your game key was not correctly copied into your Windows Registry. Uninstall the game and run the installer as Administrator and in Windows XP compatibility to the point where you enter your serial key. Enter the key and click Next once. Open Windows Registry (WINKEY+R, regedit) and browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Electronic Arts\EA Games\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour\ergc. Modify the string value containing your serial key by adding the minus between the number sections. Finish the installation.


But yeah, it is probably a problem with the key.
