i can't play C&C Generals Zero Hour online ?

★★ Novice

I bought Command & Conquer The Ultimate Collection

I want to get the file to run the game directly without origin launcher

i can't launch C&C Generals Zero Hour without origin launcher
because of that i can't play the game with my friends online on Game Ranger
http://www.gameranger.com/

How can people have a non-genuine copy of the game to play online
And I purchased an original copy and I can not play online ?

the fixed launchers are here http://www.commandandconquer.com/forums/index.php/topic/26695-fixed-launchers-for-the-ultimate-colle...

BUT the origin verson and the cd version have a slight problem with update versions and are incompatable so cracked versions of the game may not appear online due to vesion error so tell your friends to buy the game on origin

I can't log online with my Origin version of Generals Zero Hour or even create a new account.  How can I do that?

I have the original CD version of C&C Generals Zero Hour from back in the day. After installing the game today on my Windows 7 64 but system, I clicked on Multiplayer and then Online. The game then told me that I need to download an update and I clicked download. While attempting to download the update the game says "Download Error. Could not connect."

 

What am I supposed to do?

Zero Hour used Gamespy for its online play, but the whole system has been shut down as of the beginning of this month.

 

However, community servers have already been set up, so it should be possible to play online that way. More information on that can be found at http://cnc-online.net/

[SOLUTION]!!!! (install gentools FIRST) 

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM! AND I TRIED SO MANY THINGS....

 

THIS FIXED IT...

 

IF YOU HAVE GENTOOLS... gentools auto-locks the mouse such that when you play in game ranger, the auto-navigation when joining a persons room is prevented!!!

1. launch generals

2. press "insert" when you see the gentools logo. (this brings up the menu with options)

3. turn off "cursor-lock mouse" in gentools

 

FIXED.
