Hi,

I'm back on these installation issues...

I made a clean install of Zero Hour, patched it to 1.4... then used my no cd crack as i did before. Zero hour doesn't launch anymore.

Game works if i use my no cd crack without patching ...

Any solutions?

Thx

Hi,
I'm back here to say that now shocwave is working fine. Great Mod. Thanks for all the help.
I ended up nuking everything, downloaded another version, reinstalled it all and it worked fine.
Now i have killed all maps allready, including the swmapack maps. Any other maps to suggest?

Thx again!

Hello, I play on Mac OS X High Sierra with the latest version of the Deluxe Edition. Recently I tried to instal shockwave with instructions given on the Mod DB site. I got stuck on the last step because the bundle I downloaded from Mod DB contains no .big files, only 2 .txt files and a .exe. Any advice on what to do next? This is the first time I ever attempted to mod any game so forgive me if I sound perplexed and dumbfounded.

Installer version is not supported by Mac. So for now there is only version 1.1 available for Mac, as a version without installation. link
And he sure you have Zero Hour version 1.04 installed (in the option menu, look at the bottom).

I tired the 1.1 version you've provided me and followed instructions provided in the comments:

find generals/zero hour deluxe in 'Applications' folder
right click, 'Show Package Contents'
navigate: contents > gamedata > zero hour data and place all .big files included in zip directly into zero hour
within 'zero hour data', go to 'data' and within that, rename 'scripts' folder, to 'scripts_bu'

Yet all I get is an error message saying: "no data folder"

Anything I'm doing wrong?

P.S.: I checked my Zh version and it is 1.04

For ease of solving as well as easy access to previous solutions/what has worked for other people please use this thread for any issues you have with the installation or launching process....


Recommendations:
- If you have a secondary partition, I would highly recommend installing Zero Hour and Shockwave there, as you shouldn't experience any of the permission issues you would experience when installing into C:\. Installing outside of Program Files is an acceptable alternative as well.
- If you have the spare disk space, a backup Zero Hour folder is recommended.

If you experience any issues with installation or launching please post here, and I will try to help you. In most cases a screenshot of your Zero Hour folder is very helpful, however it is not required.

Recommendations:

I didn't found this after I already install SWR to my second drive/partition. So I created an account and post this for all enthusiast RTS games out there who have problem installing this legendary game.
Read this Recommendations:

Installing on second drive/partition works on Windows 10. You should see my face when I did it. I'll post it later
