First of all, you need to know your opponent. Each faction has different style of rushing (so you need early scout). You need to see where the enemy is coming. Priority targets for rushing are supply and dozer. Def rush can be defended with missile troops. Dragon rush can be defended with tank and so on.

First of all, welcome to Contra forum.
Second, you're posting in a wrong topic. This topic is about strategy discussion and replay posting (to improve your skill).
Third, what link are you referring to? Saying "the links at contra website don't work" would not tell us anything because Contra website has many links. So, please be more specify when you have a problem.

If you select a group of units, then you press ctrl+f. That group of unit would keep the current formation unless they're ordered to attack the enemy.

Hi Casojin , can u do me a favour ?
I was wondering if u can make me a replay of you playing the computer in 3v3 ,map : whiteout (8 players map)
you play as airforce with stealth and infantry (located at the top 3 spots of the map)
and you competition are tank general vs stealth ,you vs laser , infantry vs poison .

team 1 : stealth airforce infantry
team 2 : tank laser poison

Insane armies ofc.

Appreciate the effort .

POST YOUR ANSWER PLZ :]

Personally i got my ass kicked by laser , he targeted my airfields time after time with he's variety of superweapons & then came tank to crush me .

here is the replay ...

Replay sometimes doesn't work properly with AI included (due to AI cheating scripts). I haven't got much time these days to play big long game. So, it might take a while before you get the replay. AI allies have a bad habit of stealing your supply, so I usually avoid playing with AI allies (and playing with people instead).

Also, I think best map for 3v3 is 6p not 8p map.

Understood.
BTW money was no issue in the game, plenty of sources.
My younger brother was infantry so we won in the end due to he's bunker vehicles .

I'm not Contra webmaster though. There might be some problems with the data migration (to new system).

Is it possible to let a unit follow another unit? In older C&C games you could let a unit follow another unit by holding down CTRL and ALT and then left-click on it.

I'm not sure. It is not possible in original ZH but Contra might be able to use guard button on units/structures (when placing guard cursor above a unit, it appears as targeting cursor). If my memory is not faulty, this feature is added in Conta 005 onward. You have to try to be sure though.

Yes this is possible. Well, not follow, but you can set a unit to guard another. You need to EXACTLY click on the other unit when having guard selected. You could also try formation moving (ctrl+f)

Hi,I'm new to this site,been tracking Contra Mod and this forum since 006 version,but desperation led me to make my first post just about...now - here it is:

I'm playing chalenge (I know it's not supported fully,and all that,but still,it's more chalenging then skirmish play),and I play with the Infantry General(on the hardest setting,of course).It's been one heck of a ride,and it led me to the 7th chalenger,the LASER GENERAL.I played against him with the nuke general a few times(he is the first chalenger there) and quit very soon,but with Infantry I tried like over 20 times allready,and nothing seems to work against him.SW general is a piece of cake compared to him.I noticed that his rushes are customized to fit my rank,which would is good,but still,he's overpowered,I think.He has 3 particle cannons from the start (which destroy a Command Centar just like that),he sweeps any expansion bases I make with Comanches(although a handfull of minigunners takes care of them fairly enough),and his rushes of tanks\infantry are too soon and too often (and above rank 3 he gets paladins,libras,and microwaves - so garrisons and bunkers,as well as mobile infantry are not an option)...Rushing him is pretty much impossible,due to his inpenetrable defences,and taking them out with artilery takes waaay long,due to the obvious lack of money (you start of with 15000).I made the post a bit long,but please,can anyone at least try the level,or has passed it,to give me some advice on how to beat this goddamn laser general,he's bugging me. Thank you,in advance.

And I hope I got the topic right...:)

How About,the idea of experienced players sharing Replays of "Great Tactical Games" ,and "Against All Odds" games that they had play ?

It will be fantastic for new players to see how to implement tactics in gameplay.

Just found a new strategy for infantry general, it works great against tanks especially. Build a Assault Troop Crawler (8 seat one), then exit all the units out of it. Fill it with 4-6 hackers, then the rest a mix of field engineers and jammer troopers. Have this unit supported by 2 gatling crawlers loaded with tank hunters, and tanks will tremble. The hackers inside the crawlers disable any enemy vehicles they see, leaving them open for your other crawlers to attack. It works best if you have 2-3 assault crawlers and 4 or so tank hunter crawlers, hopefully i can make a replay soon to show.
