Windows 7: C&C Generals Zero Hour

C&C Generals Zero Hour

I hope there is someone out there can help with this problem.

I've got Generals working fine with Win 7 64,
but when I play Zero Hour I am getting strange effects.

The game loads fine you can start the campaigns but when you have been "Victorious"
all I get are the options to "Play again" or "Exit"

I have two genuine copies of Zero Hour as I have the deluxe edition as well.
I know they work because I loaded them onto my laptop that has XP.

I have tried loading the saved games from the internet so as to continue but these
only work up to campaign 4, but when I load 5 the game starts and the Immediately
the whole area explodes and I am told that I have been defeated.

I really hope that someone from this group can help as other groups have failed.

Thank for replying
This is on Single player.
Last night I did a complete reinstall and cleared the registry (again) but loaded it onto the D: drive
but still the same fault.

Mc Donald OS Version Beta

Oh, I see.

A few suggestions

- If you are playing on hard (or something like that) I recommend trying it on easy to see if you still get killed quickly

- Did you try modding anything? If so, play the game without mods.

- Try an Invincibility Cheat. (Download a Trainer or Use the Game Console.)

- Contact the company and report this bug.

Thank for the suggestions
I've tried all but no luck
I'm sure EA would not be interested in a game that's 6 year old
I have spoken to and forums back this up that, that EA is not interested.

Windows 7 x64 Home Edition

Hello Ctrman

I believe you with the entire EA not caring about the game its true EA usually drops support for their games after the year is over its quite sad.

Its quite strange to tell you I have Command and Conquer Generals Deluxe edition as well and I have not experienced that problem on Windows 7. The only few things I can suggest to you that you probably already have heard is try updating your drivers for your Graphics card. If you have done that maybe update your Direct X files.

Thank you swifty for your input
I have the latest nvidia drivers (funny enough the email came through today for new drivers) and have direct x 11

Just as of the wall thought could this be caused with money cheat programs?
I use them with generals, is it possible that one of these cheats is still resident someware in the system and not in the registry or directories?
