Command & Conquer Generals problem

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Games' started by Matt Anderson, Mar 15, 2007.

  1. Hello Everyone.

    I had XP SP2. I installed Vista Ultimate as an upgrade install. Ever
    since, when I try to play a skirmish, my base is demolished almost
    immediately.

    Anyone got a clue what's going on and how I can fix it?

    Thanks!

  2. Uninstall it, then reinstall it under Vista. Single player will work for
    Vista, but it has a problem with the in-game Gamespy and will crash when
    connecting to it.

  3. Ok. Ran the "repair" option and now the game seems to work fine.

  4. Actually, scratch the second part of my last post. Download the Generals
    1.08 patch and the ZH 1.04 patch from EA
    (http://www.ea.com/official/cc/generals/us/demos.jsp?state=6) and right click
    on each separate patch and choose 'Run as Administrator' to update that way
    which allows multiplayer mode to work again. The in game and patchgrabber
    will mess up the updates.

    If I want to install extra maps where do they go? What folder?
