View Full Version : Command & Conquer Generals - Zero Hour

Hi all,

I have just bought the C & C Generals expansion pack - ZERO HOUR. I have been waiting ages for it. Anyways I've installed it and everything went fine until I ran the game. The game runs throught the opening movies just fine but once they are done and it gets to the game menu things go to what can only be described as snail's pace.

Like Generals the background of the game menu is a battle sequence but unlike Generals the one in Zero Hour lags and doesn't appear to be loading properly. The only thing I see in the game menu is it's borders outline and that's it, nothing else.

I have looked at the specs and my machine is well equipped to handle the game, I have no idea what to do to fix it. I've been on the EA site but nothing there yet.

Does anyone else have this game... does it work, what are your specs, did you do anthing to like tweak the game?

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

try uninstalling it - and then installing it again (make sure your do a reboot between unintsalling and installing)

Also - check the offical site for the game (not to sure wot it is) and download the lastest game patches.

hope this helps
